Well, it's 10 minutes walk from railway station situated in quiet neighborhood, 25 minutes walk to city center. Rooms are clean but rather basic, bathroom is clean too. Wifi is free and fast, there is a TV in the room. Good choice.

The hotel was great, don't assume wrong because of the one star mark. The hotel was clean, warm, with a big shower (also the towels were provided) and it is close to the city. The staff was very polite :)

We stayed at the Hotel Ideale overnight en route back home after a week in Tuscany. The staff was very helpful and kind, enduring our weak Italian skills. We were 'upgraded' to a room that was more like an apartment. If only we could have stayed a few days to enjoy it better.

I stayed 4 nights in Ideale Bologna. During my arrival, a woman that cant speak english in the reception tried to get rid of me although my company booked. Then a man came called Bruno, he was more friendly and more intelligent. What I recently understood was hotel is divided into 2. And I was going to stay in the... More

Clean and good sizes room but with the usual tiny shower. Out of the historical centre but close to the bus. Helpful staff that were helpful and friendly. On the downside you could hear everyone walking up the stairs and noises from above. Great value for the price

The hotel was ideal. very close to the old town and train station. The owners have water for guests which was a nice touch. The room was clean and secure. Very quiet neighborhood. Bathroom was a little small especially the shower area, although it was clean.

Tiny hotel but rooms are quite big and basic. We landed quite late at night and when we arrived at the hotel, it looked really dodgy from the outside. However,the owner was really helpful and he even offered a lift to the train station in the morning, which we refused as it was a 10-15 minute walk... I would recommend... More

Clean rooms, well located. It was a 5min walk to the station, 15min walk to the show grounds. No breakfast or extras, just fab value. The rooms have been renovated to a good standard. The hotel is located in a semi run down area hence the bargain price. Would return if in the area again.

As breakfast is not provided we found a very good snack bar just over the main road.There was also a good pizza place near called Yari... More

I have stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks, and unfortunately I cannot recommend this establishment to anyone!! Hotel Ideale is divided in 2 parts- one is for 'better' customers-preferably older German couples, or those who 'look rich'. The other part- old and poor is run by mother of Bruno Misciali. I was offered a room in the other part... More
