Business trip for one night - as it was Sunday there were very few booked in that night. Staff courteous, fifth floor room was very well appointed, breakfast was excellent and wide choice available - would definitely return

Enjoyed two stays here during September. It's a very elegant hotel, beautiful and very grand reception area, huge chandeliers, and a warm welcome at reception from staff who all speak perfect English. Room was spotlessly clean, a good size, but no kettle, or tea/ coffee making facilities were provided which was a first for me in many years of worldwide... More

Stayed here upon arriving in Bologna for 3 nights. Room well appointed and good, bathroom excellent, desk staff very helpful and pleasant. A short walk from the train station and 10 minute walk to Piazza Maggiore. Great breakfast, selection of meats, cheeses, fruits, breads, yogurts, cereals, sweet rolls and bacon and eggs (scrambled and hard boiled). In a quiet area.... More

Used chocolate paper in the safe! Unnesessary complicated access to Wi-Fi, had to contact Reception to get the procedure, and you had to pay, although a conference hotel. LScanty choices for breakfast, no fried eggs. Otherwise excellent! Short distance to the portals.

Hotel us basic, in my room there was no iron, coffee or tea, wifi,.. You will be offered a one hour of free wifi during your stay, but facebook was connected, charge of 5 euros/day for free access. Hotel is 10 ti 15 mins to city center and 5 mins to bologna centrale train station.

Air conditioning is not very cold and rather noisy but room with 2 large single beds arm chairs, table minibar and safe (no extra charge) is very comfortable and everything works well. Bathroom clean and... More

The best aspect of this hotel is its location. You are close to the train station and the main shopping and historical area. The hotel staff at the desk are not pleasant and wifi must be paid for. A business hotel should have free wifi and coffee available in rooms which this hotel does not have. The buffet breakfast is... More
