Stayed here with family for a couple of days. Great hotel. Rooms we very clean and had good facilities. Staff were very helpful and breakfast was good with lots of choice. We also had dinner in the restaurant which was really good and again the service was excellent. I would stay at this hotel again.

Perfectly situated across the road from the station, but a long walk from the city centre. Rooms are dark and feel dated. Staff uninspiring and breakfast average. I wouldn't class this as great value for money. I agree with the comment about the lack of an iron - and the laundry prices being extortionate - however found this to be... More

We stayed 4 nights and were impressed with the hotel from the minute we arrived. Check-in was a breeze and the staff were very helpful in answering questions and provided a wealth of material on the immediate area. Our rooms were on the 7th floor and overlooked the railway station opposite. Excellent double glazing and insulation eliminated any traffic noise.... More

This was my second stay in this hotel in less than a year. I was glad to find out that it remained quite the same - friendly staff, clean good sized rooms, relaxing atmosphere and excellent breakfast. There are only two things I can complain about - the not so good free WiFi and every single morning during breakfast I... More

It's a 4 star hotel and it's very well earned, that said there are a few small things that let it down. There is no iron in the room and no iron available, you can have it laundered, but the cost is rather extortionate. The wifi is so awful, the ancient Egyptians probably had better signal. The staff are friendly... More

I stayed at the hotel for one night and was pleased to find very clean rooms with everything you would need. The room was overlooking the trainstation and I was expecting somekind of noise, but I couldn't hear a thing, as the room had double windows that kept any sounds out. If you know you always get late for the... More

Quite large, a little more “posh” hotel just across the street from the main train station. Also the buses to the airport leaves from just outside. It is about 20 minutes to the central square in Bologna, so if you want to stay right in the middle, you should choose another place. The rooms are fine, not very big, but... More

My husband & I stayed here for 2 nights in August. The staff were very welcoming & helpful - an early check in was no problem, advice was freely given on where to go for food & what to see.. Comfortable room. Wide range of food at breakfast, all good quality, courteous prompt service. Extremely convenient location just across the... More

Good standard rooms and generally (with one exception) friendly and helpful front desk staff. Buffet breakfast was very good although it takes ages to get a coffee for some reason. The WiFi was also painfully slow and they still think (in the year 2014) they can charge a premium for faster WiFi (which I tried, and which wasn't even much... More
