This hotel is situated 1.3Km for the railway station and near the university. It is ideally situated for visiting the sights of Bologna. The staff were all very welcoming , our room was clean with air conditioning and everything working. The wallpaper border was peeling in places and if this matters to you go elsewhere but if not enjoy the... More

The hotel is near the city centre and the train/bus station. It's a little hotel with a few rooms. We had a clean room with enough space. The nights were less comfortable: the airco was broken and with open windows we suffered from noise of the cafés in the same street. The breakfast was simple but okay. The staff was... More

We were in Bologna for the anniversary of "strage di bologna" terrorism attacks of 1980. We walked the humid summer streets, encountering memorials, piazza grande concerts featuring original compositions, and visual projections on historic buildings. We found the hotel by recommendation of the tourism office near Piazza Grande. The hotel staff were kind, helpful. The hotel was quiet, clean, and... More

We were able to park nearby at not a huge expense, the hotel was nice enough, free wifi was good and staff were all friendly. The room was very big and perfectly nice considering how cheap it was although the shower wasn't great and the bathroom in general could do with a little work but it was what we needed... More

The hotel is at a good place, rooms are nice and clean, breakfast is okay. Staff is extremely gentle and ready to help any time. They recomended us some nice places to eat some good local food. Place is worth of money!

Booked as a 'bargain' option for one leg of a three cities tour of Italy this was by far the best quality. Great, safe location in the historic centre, good room, clean and comfortable, friendly staff. Only minus (which may be an issue for some) is that the staff have very limited English. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay... More

Great location, and if all you want is a clean dry bed, then this will pass muster. The shower is rather poor but seeing as we paid under £60 for 3, we can't complain. Anyone who moans on here is clearly asking for too much, if they want a better standard then pay for it!

The hotel is supposedly a 3* but the hygiene and state of the rooms don't cut the mustard. Helpful guy on the desk just don't bother if you're looking for a romantic retreat. Also noisy with bar below room. Breakfast was ok staff were helpful and showed us how to work the coffee machine

We needed a room for an overnight stay and this was ideal. All the basic amenities, clean and very helpful staff, within the University precinct, so quiet as it was during the break and parking was easy (€9 = 24 hrs). A good continental breakfast was included along with free wi fi.
