The location of the hotel is just great, right in front of the station., very handy. The hotel is old fashion but very nice, clean and tidy. People are very professional and available , nice breakfast too. Only a little advise, the mattresses are a bit old, it would be just great with a fresh new ones.

I've been staying at this hotel as far back as when it was a Sofitel. It is directly across the street from the train station, yet it is quiet. It's a perfect location from me. No transportation needed to my hotel. I can then walk or take the bus to anywhere I want to go in Bologna. It's an amazing... More

We stayed here 4 nights. The location is superb. Just across from the train station and the cabs are easy to get. The cab line forms near the station. The town center and all the attractions are a short walking distance and the place is surrounded by lots of good restaurants. The hotel is old, but they have maintained this... More

This hotel is in an ideal location, directly opposite the railway station, the Aerobus stop for the airport and close to the Via Independenza - the main way to get to the centre of the old city (just 15 minutes walk away). We were delighted with our room on the 7th floor because it has its own private balcony where... More

Just in front to the railway station and walking distance from Piazza Maggiore; Check in fast from gentle staff as well has been the check out. Room was quiet with enough space and the bed comfortable. The bath room not really the most modern, but more than acceptable. Wifi working properly in the room and the breakfast offered a good...

Hotel Mercure is opposite the main railway station & also where you can catch the bus to the airport(6 euro). The room was really nice & clean. The staff were great & we were given a free day pass for the local buses which was really helpful. Must mention David who went the extra mile.Breakfast was really good with a... More

Bad: you need to wait for a long time to get somewhat warm water; also the level of water temperature tends to change all the time. A horror to wash you hair. Breakfast was bad, and they have a stupid way of charging it separately at the breakfast room each Morning. Normal way would be to add it to the... More

This hotel has a good location as its situated just opposite the Bologna rail station. Food and convenience stores are all nearby walking distance with good prices. The rooms are pretty standard but a bit old for Mercure lines of hotel but still it's great stay in Bologna city centre.

We stayed here for one night. While the rooms have outdated decor and were a little warm, the staff were very friendly and kind and spoke English fluently. The hotel is literally across the road from the station so very easy to get to. It is about a 15 minute (realistically) walk to the main attractions and the hotel provide... More

This hotel is right opposite the main Bologna railway station (which is one of the main termini in Italy). The facade comes right onto a very busy main road and I do not know if rooms facing the road are noisy. We had a room overlooking the very pleasant and spacious private gardens, with terraces from the restaurant and bar.... More
