Apart from the rubbish internet connection this hotel was excellent in every way - complimentary upgrade, feast of a breakfast, large room, clean bathroom and location can't be beaten. There is a Coop supermarket 7 minutes away on foot where I got our daily supplies. Side trip to Modena highly recommended

We have stayed here a couple of times, as Bologna is one of our favorite cities. We like it, because if we fly in, we can easily take the bus to the train station and the hotel is across the street. Then when departing, it is just a walk across the street to the train station. The rooms are very... More

Stayed there with a friend for New Year's Eve and it really exceeded our expectations. Location is great, train station is right across the street, city center is within a 10-minute walking distance. Building is very old, but renovated. The high ceilings give the rooms a more spacious feel. Beds and pillows were comfortable, room - very clean. The breakfast... More

This hotel is situated right opposite the Central railway station, but you wouldn't know it once inside. the rooms are all double glazed and a really quiet. It's central location means the city is easily explored on for or by bus. Breakfast is good with a variety of hot and cold dishes.

The location across from the train station is extremely convenient, with the sights of the city not much more than a half-mile walk away. Our room was clean and comfortable. The front desk staff was efficient if not terribly friendly. The breakfast, included, offered a wide variety of foods. And the price was right. I would stay there again... but... More

We stayed in Bologna for a week on a City Break and knew we would want to make day trips to neighbouring Cities so chose this hotel as it is directly opposite the station. Our room was large, comfortable and well equipped with lots of storage space. We had no problems with the free Wi-Fi or air conditioning. We could... More

Stayed here for one night on the way through Bologna. After reading a few of the other reviews I was a bit worried about the temperature in the rooms. I am happy to say we had a great stay. Staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast was good, and the room and room temperature was more than comfortable. Although the... More

This is a very comfortable and stylish hotel, conveniently located opposite the central railway station. We booked one of the cheapest rooms, but you really couldn’t have asked for more – the room was large and well furnished, with a comfortable bed. It was very quiet and, during the four nights of our stay, it seemed as though we were... More

Just stopped in this hotel for 3 nights. The deluxe room we booked was very basis and cramped so we upgraded to an executive room. Whilst the room was much larger it still wasn't what you would expect for a 4 star hotel. Firstly we complained the air conditioning wasn't working and we were advised it hadn't be switched on...
