Stayed 2 nights for trade fair, very well located for Bolognafiera exhibition centre, an easy 20 minute walk! And only 15 minutes in taxi to/from airport. Hotel was ok, very clean, but very basic, was allocated room in 'basement' with very small high window, so could not see out, but really only used for sleeping so not a big issue!... More

Our first impression wasn't great as the building was covered in scaffolding when we were there in July. Once we got in however we found the hotel was fine. The hotel is outside of Bologna hence the price but regular buses run from the end of the street. Others have said it wasn't in a very nice area but we... More

+: Very kind, even had a covered, closed place to park our motorcycle. The room was great, especially the bathtub with the hydro massage. Also the location is quite good, close to the center. -: The breakfast was not very convincing, and there was a lady who was loudly placing things while we were having breakfast.

I stayed 2 weeks here, and was very happy with the sizable, clean & quiet room, firm bed, and nice desk clerks. You have to like to walk, as it is 10-12 minutes from the city wall. The neighborhood is historically working class, so it is not elegant but it is quite safe, and people will not stare at you... More

This hotel is ok: good price to quality ratio, average breakfast, ok staff. It's a 10' walk to the train station and a somewhat longer walk (20 - 25') to the city centre. If you are visiting the CNR research centre (like I did), the location is perfect, as it's only 10 - 15' away on foot. As for the... More

Gutted I saw none of the slightly bad reviews of the hotel when booking it. Really fooled by tripadvisor, I don't know how they got a excellent marks "certificate" year 2011, standing at their reception desk. Photos look lovely and description is great too. But the hotel does not resemble any of the photos on the website. Hotel Astor might... More

The hotel is what it is - a fairly decent, inexpensive hotel just outside the centre of town. Don't stay here if you want a romantic night in the beautiful historic town of Bologna, as you'll be disappointed. However, the room and bathroom was absolutely fine and actually a pretty good size. The breakfast was ok, definitely not below average... More

There are no frills at this hotel but it is clean, safe and the staff is courteous. The rooms are not fancy but they are adequately heated for winter. They also have parking space which is rare in Bologna. They even have a covered parking garage that they usually charge for, but in my case they didn't. Breakfast is only... More
