Just as you remember a Royal "Grand Hotel"... But not only the interior is important for a Hotel Review. Reception: Friendly, but with some Check-ins during same time, the Staff will get... More

Very clean and well kept, professional staff and large rooms. 5 min. from the historical center with many shops and some rrstaurants nearby. Good wifi and large buffet breakfast. A place to return in a city to return to.

Excellent hotel, A five to six minute walk to the railway station. So very close. Near plenty of restaurants. Room was spacious and clean. Bed comfortable. Reception staff were all very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was buffet style. Plenty of selections. I would definitely stay at this hotel again if I return to Bologna in the future.

This hotel is a great classic hotel with wow factor. The lobby and bar are beautifully designed, the rooms are good, the beds are comfortable and outside there are several cabanas where you can relax and have a cold drink in the shade. The staff are great and very helpful. Would come back in a heartbeat and stay for leisure.

When you have had enough of eating out, there is a wonderful Bar were Arturo the Bar man will cook fresh tip bits all evening. The Hotel has a very helpful, frendly staff who all seem to speak good english. The Hotel is very central to most of the intresting things to see architecturally, and is a wonderful shopping experience.

Stayed here as part of a tour group. Nice hotel, free wifi. Located between train station and town square. Bologna is the best city for walking and it was very easy to walk to restaurants and sites. Breakfast was included. Staff was curious. Room was clean and comfortable. Minibar.

We spent three wonderful nights in this hotel. The accommodations, service and staff were excellent. This was part of an organized tour and this facility exceeded our expectations. Check in was flawless. We had an organized dinner the first night and the service was perfect, food outstanding, and company perfect.

We booked this hotel as part of package with BA. The hotel is in a good location, near to main shopping street and about 10 mins walk from the rail station. The hotel looks like a 1970's edifice from the outside but with lovely gardens. Inside the hotel is fabulous. It is worth upgrading to a superior room. The breakfast... More

Great Hotel!. I was there for a conference and spent 3 nights there. The staff is amazing! I dined in the restaurant a few times, really good!

This hotel is well located, on a side street in the town center, within easy walking distance to both the historical old town and the train station. The rooms are fairly large and comfortable. I also had a nice balcony overlooking the garden. The breakfast buffet is good, and there were also decent conference facilities and a gym.
