Nice surprise. 20-30 min walking to the center, too much, but they have free bike and the ride is very enjoyable, also because it's in a cyclable road. Free parking for your car, staff nice and helpful, undubtley worth the money. So i suggest this hotel from may to september when rains are uncommon and you can move by bike.

I stayed last night at the Best Western Hotel Maggiore Bologna. The service was excellent and it was nice to be able to talk to someone who understood what I was saying. It was very comfortable and a good nights sleep on great pillows after 2 weeks on the ship on lumpy ones. A wide variety for breakfast and the... More

Hotel was excellent. Much better than a three star. Beautiful decor , good facilities , helpful staff. Little unusual themed objects placed in every common area. We were getting an early morning flight and were looked after very well at a very early hour.

we stayed for one night at this hotel on May. It was one of the cheapest 4 star hotels in Bologna at that period and we did not mind that it is located 3 km away from center. It was our second visit to Bologna.The center can easily be reached in 10 minutes with the bus and the bus stop... More

I cannot understand how this hotel can get 4/5 or even 5/5 in TripAdvisor reviews! If it was not for the friendliness of the staff I would have rated it even one lower than what I'm doing now. The hotel lays 3km away from the city center in a fairly rough neighbourhood, next to the general hospital on a very... More

We stayed only one night, and were a little shocked upon arrival because the area is not very impressive. However, once inside, everything is great: - the decoration is very tasteful, warm and comfortable - the hotel aims to be environment friendly, which is very important, for example by using squeeze bottels for soap rather than small packs of toiletries...

The room was definitely the smallest I've ever stayed in, but it was very clean, comfortable and air-conditioned (and since this was my first stay in an European hotel, I may have been expecting something more comparable to American accommodations). I was delighted at the friendliness, helpfulness and professionalism of the staff as I do not speak Italian and was... More
