We stayed for one night, very pleasant people, breakfast not as bad as we thought it would be, selection of cereals, juices and a lot more so we were very surprised. Nice, clean room. Two things we didn't like - the bathroom with a very small shower, low water pressure and big radiator that we couldn't turn off and another... More

This place really is falling apart. My god, where to start. First of all it seems that the staff are completely chocked that they have to provide service and a nice smile as part of their job. It seems that the hotel is rather a guest house. The bathroom was small and falling apart too, jesus. The breakfast was below... More

We stayed here for 1 night whilst on our whirlwind tour of Italy's Cities. I have to say, this hotel although tucked away in a side street, was fantastic for the price. We were welcomed warmly, shown to our room and we were not disappointed. Sky T.V, luxurious and modern furniture, firm well made bed and free air con. Lovely... More

After a hectic trip from Milan airport via the railway i finally arrived at the Hotel Astor Bologna. What i saw did not over inspire me as on asking at reception there was no bar in the hotel. I was thirsty and hungry so as well as no bar there was no restaurant. The shower used to fall off the... More

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
