The Albergo Centrale is, as the name suggests, in a very central location just down the road from the Piazza Maggiore and with easy access to all the sights of Bologna. The bed was extremely comfortable, the double glazing worked well, as did the air conditioning! Breakfast was brilliant, a huge spread of savouries and pastries. The coffee was not... More

We were a family of four and found Centrale in a great location which will be even better when the adjacent pedestrian zone is completed. Parking is near. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The hotel is well secured. It has a an elevator. Staff are friendly and helpful. And the breakfast is the best we had in our one... More

We were a couple and an adult child in one room.The room was definitely spacious enough for all of us. The shower was a nice size as well. (first floor, corner room). The hotel could do with a good cleaning (corners and crevasses) but overall was good. Breakfast was included and was quite nice. WIFI was terrible: The connection was... More

This hotel was in an excellent location and was quite spacious for Europe! We walked from the train station in about 20 minutes. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful! The breakfast buffet was plentiful. Our room (#4) faced the main street and one night we were kept awake by a band playing... More

We enjoyed our stay in this traditional hotel. Nothing fancy, but helpful staff, good breakfast and very central position. Our bathroom was across the hall, but had a good large shower. Good value and good 3 days in Bologna.

We thought this was great value for a central location. Rooms are high ceilinged with slightly old furniture and typical for Italy small-ish bathroom, everything is fine though. We had a lovely tiny balcony with great view. Breakfast buffet is superb. I would stay here again.

Don't take room 24 - it smells like someone has died in there! At first we thought it was the AC, so we turned it off. But the smell didn't go away. It wasn't a cheap room either. Plus, the guest before us kindly left a large piece of chewing gum on the bedside table and the maid forgot to... More

We had a wonderful visit in Bologna, 5 nights, direct flight from Edinburgh - we shall return! The Albergo Centrale is good value. it's very clean and some of the rooms are fine, reasonably large with high ceilings, lovely views of Bolognese skyline. A great feature is double-glazed, heavy glass windows which completely shut out noise from the street, and... More

We stayed about one year ago. The hotel is on an upper floor of a building. The room was very basic, but fine. It probably hadn't been updated in 20 years. The breakfast was plentiful and the choice was good. The location was good. Very accessible. Just across the main road you will find a number of small back streets... More

For an ok price, you get a great breakfast, the rooms are clean and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The location is just great, everything is close by, on walking distance. The only thing that I could say is that the bed was rather hard.. but that's it!
