Overall it was an excellent experience. Being a compact room for a single person, I could sleep well. Wifi was little poor and it was fixed when I complained to them. Breakfast was good and staff were very friendly.

We started and ended our trip to Italy in Bologna. On our recent trip to Italy my family and I flew into Bologna as it was the only location close to Tuscany that my mother-in-law could fly into from an airport near her home in Romania and not take a 8-10 hour train trip to Bucharest. First, the website. Since... More

Stayed here twice for one-night in one week as we had to drive up to the Garda Lake in between, and the hotel is conveniently located between the airport, the main highways in and out of the city, and the city centre itself.

Good value hotel with good facilities. The staff were very friendly. We arrived in torrential rain and were advised there was sheltered parking for motorcycles. They even offer bike washing facilities (not used by us). Small bar by reception for a late drink as we didn't like going out again. Spacious room (55) was very comfortable. Nice buffet breakfast was... More

Despite the very friendly staff I have to rate it 'average', mostly due to the small and dated room, and the bad coffee at breakfast. Also the street outside is very noisy, however, with the windows closed and the aircon on it is fine.

Neat n clean hotel. Rooms a bit small, but functional.. House keeping did poor replenishment, had to ask for glasses.. Very near to Airport, not far from the city either.. Offered a bus service to the fair, otherwise one has to call a cab.. Not very good restaurants near by.. A very big superstore is there just at the back... More

Hotel is a bit dated and the rooms are quite small. Having said that the hotel and our room were very clean - and the bed comfy. The reception staff were helpful and friendly too taking time to recommend restaurants. The main bonus though is the location. Centrally located for a good base when exploring this beautiful city.

I would love to give a good rate, but as I found about 15 bites on my body after leaving room 33 unfortunately I cannot. Please do something to protect your future customers, read about bed bugs and make action asap.

I stayed at this hotel for just one night due to its proximity to the airport and a very early departure time. My room was compact but very efficiently laid out-super clean.

Great value, really enjoyed my stay! Ample-sized room, quiet, very clean, and a friendly cadre of staff that were happy to help (sadly, not always the case in Italy). The difference in this hotel is that you can tell the management are professional and take their jobs seriously and the staff genuinely care about their guests. I will return when... More
