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

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.

My son and I booked a twin room and were given a room with three beds. Our room was clean and well set up. Our bathroom was new and clean with amenities and was quite large. Air conditioning worked well. Our beds were comfortable there were extra pillows and blankets. Breakfast was good, with lots of variety. Desk staff were... More

The best thing about the hotel is its location, particularly if you are visiting the University. All the places that you would want to visit in the city are within walkable distance from this hotel. The hotel and the rooms are a bit worn out and the bathroom is a bit cramped. Service was good and the staff are helpful.

Spent a weekend here. The shower was incredibly small. The bed was very firm. However the staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good although the breakfast room was small making for some entertaining overheard conversations. Reasonable location not too far from the toweres and center of thw city. The university is nearby. Reasonably priced.
