A spotless clean hotel. Spacious rooms, very helpful reception team. Every morning at the breakfast room, we were greeted with smiles and Boun giorno by an incredible staff. Monica the lady there showers the room with glee. Her smiles and good manners makes her special. The breakfast is very good, fresh and ample. The hotel is 15 mins walk for... More

This hotel is close to the Bologna Exhibition Centre (1200 metres, 15 minuts walking) and makes the most of the proximity by applying very high prices (228.00 Euros/Room) during the exhibition periods. The good things: Proximity to the exhibition grounds, quiet back street, reasonably good restaurant and breakfast, good wifi and a comfortable room with a nice bathroom. The bad... More

Despite not being 4-star we were only using as a place to lay our heads and take the rating systems, in Europe,with a pinch of salt anyway. We wanted somewhere quiet and within walking distance of the train station (which we used to the max). There were hotels opposite the station but they were on a main road and more... More

Hotel offers very good value for the price paid. Plain from the outside, but nicely appointed inside. Nice, spacious, immaculately maintained and clean room with high quality bathroom. Very friendly, helpful staff. Good breakfast selection. Good location in quiet residential area, but in walking distance to historic city center. Will definitely stay there again, when in the area.

Excellent and welcoming hotel situated close to Piazza Unita' (Bolognina area), 15 minutes away from the Central Station "Via Caracci" exit on foot and 10 minutes away from the Bolognafiere complex by Taxi. Walking to the Fairground is ok, but it will take around 25/30 minutes. Taxi fare from hotel to the fairground will cost approximately 7/10 euro one way.... More

Stayed a night here recently. Was greeted by a very welcoming receptionist. Asked if we were part of Best Western rewards program, asked if we'd like to sign up. Then, she upgraded us to a junior suite. As we prepared to go out for the evening, provided a map with directions as to where to go, what buses to take... More

Stayed in this hotel last week with 2 couples for leisure. Looks futuristic from the outside, whereas the rooms are quite pleasantly traditional. Rooms acceptable size for a city hotel with a nice bathroom (bath/shower) and quiet. Airco does stop when desired temperature is reached and has to be switched on again manually. 15 mins to Bologna airport and centre... More

We booked a hotel in Bologna but was unaware that the area was 200kms away from the train station we arrived at. Starting from the taxi driver who took it on himself to make sure we had a room before he left us, to the receptionist on the desk who could not be more lovely when she provided us with... More

This best western is north of the station on the route out to the airport. We walked into the centre and back twice although there are regular bus services stopping outside. One night we ate at a local restaurant just off the square and had a fine italian meal at a a good price without all the hassle of getting... More
