The Hotel is just 1 minute walk away from the main street in Bologna, via dell'indipendenza. My room was quite old, noisy and not really clean. I know many other rooms in the hotel have been refurbished so I guess its just a matter of luck, it also depend on the season you are travelling. Friendly staff @ reception. Excellent... More

Execellent location, good room, wifi worked perfectly. Sent an e-mail to the hotel because I forgot to indicate 'late arrival' when booking and received a reply with a very detailed access plan to avoid the 'traffico limitato' area (where you can drive but it is camera controlled and you do receive hughe fines a few weeks later - it is...

Overall this hotel was a great find. Location fantastic - about 15-20 mins walk from the station. Right in the heart. Arrival - welcoming = we were able to put our bags in reception while we went and did tourist things prior to checking in which was so handy - saved us carrying them around. My only issue was all...

I was very pleased by the accommodation conditions. The hotel is located in the heart of Bologna, the staff was really polite and friendly, the room was spacious, modernly furnished and very clean. There was tea in the room and an electric kettle. We received a city map and in the morning, as we were leaving early to the airport,... More

The central location, you are almost in the heart of Bologna. The room was little but comfortable and clean. The receptionist on the evening of our arrival (sorry, forgot to ask her name) was very kind to give us the exact way to get directly to the hotel. She also suggested where to leave my car to pay less parking.... More

The hotel is locatel right in the old town, which makes all the sights close by. A train station is 15 min walk as well. Nice breakfast served every morning, and friendly staff. Our room was a little bit dark during the day, but other than that we liked it. Overall we would totally recommend it to everyone looking for... More

I would strongly discourage driving here because the hotel only has 2 spots in front... it's almost impossible to get those spots. Also, driving in the Historic Center is quite a headache, being a mostly pedestrian zone. The service at the Front Desk during the day was so-so... the ladies working at night were quite friendly, though Breakfast was decent...... More

Me and my wife stayed in this hotel for one night in September '14 and really enjoyed it. It is situated very close to Piazza Maggiore and other attractions, the room was cosy and very clean, breakfast was plentiful and various. If you are looking for inexpensive, but clean and cosy hotel close to the main attractions in Bologna then... More

This is a nice hotel with a good location very close to the city center. The room was good and clean and it was quiet during the night. The breakfast was quite poor and even though they had a real coffee machine it was not open for use during the breakfast. They also tried to charge us an extra €4... More

The center of Bologna dates to the 1200s. Few hotels have large rooms, even the most expensive (e.g., the Corona d'Oro -- once the palace of a cardinal). Most visitors are in Bologna only for a night or two, so space is not that important. Location is. The Hotel Holiday is 5 minutes walk from the main piazza, and is... More
