Although this is priced right and using the bus you can get to most places of interest we found the hotel to be poor. The bed has not comfortable and it was the worse night of sleep we had on the trip. The room as the smallest of any we stayed in and the staff was not very friendly. I... More

We stayed at the Albergo giardinetto in September 2012, for two nights. The hotel itself is fairly clean and comfortable (although under our bed it was a bit gross), but nothing spectacular, and slightly worse than other European hotels at lower prices. Our room was a double, on the small side, with tired decor. The room came with a TV... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, and chose it for it's value for money in Bologna at only 43€ for a double room! Approximately a 20 minute walk to Piazza Maggorie. Bus stop right out the front door is great for 1 euro bus to the fiera. There was a great restaurant 100 meters to the left out the front... More

PRO's: The albergo is located just a short 10-15min walking distance from the city walls of Bologna and there is a bus stop a few meters outside. 2 buses - #14 & #25 go directly to the historic city center where most of Bologna's attractions are. The hotel is small and nice. The important thing for us is that it's... More

This hotel is situated just outside the 'old city', but it did not take long to walk into the centre. It was approx 30 minutes walk from the railway station. Our room was quite small, but was ensuite. It had air con, a minibar and a TV (no English channels). It was very comfortable and quiet, so we slept very... More

We only stayed here one night -the people were friendly, the hotel was close-ish to town, but nothing spectacular. I would recommend for a night or two, for a no-frills, not-amazing but not-terrible stay.

Hotel Giardinetto is a must for me everytime I come to Bologna. Not really close to rail station, but has a bus stop right in front. It is marked as two star, but its rooms have been refurbished really well and have the comfort of a superior quality hotel. Breakfast is so-and-so and sometimes the cleaning service in the rooms...

If you are staying in Bologna this Hotel is a short taxi ride from the train station (where the airport bus drops off) approx: 8-10 Euro. Good bathrooms including a small washing line which I found very useful. Excellent multi lingual staff at reception - V friendly 40 - 60 Euro a night with internet deals giving good bargins.
