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

Driving in from Trieste we were able to find the Hotel Reale with little problem. Nestled in a neighborhood approximately a 15 minute walk from la citta' vecchia, we we put in a second floor apartment in the rear of the building. It was odd in that the kitchen had a refrigerator that was empty, not plugged in and the... More

At first sight, and looking on Google Maps, this looks pretty awful from the outside. But, don't be put off as inside, this family run hotel, has been completely refurbished and is in excellent condition. They have 8 rooms on the first floor of this apartment block, so don't control the outside. Although only one star, the welcome is great... More
