Very friendly and helpful staff, huge buffet breakfast included and very central location in a beautiful city. The room was advertised as 'shared bathroom' but when we arrived we were told the bathroom was just across the hallway from our room but it was for our use only.

We had a family room for four and were very happy with this hotel (one night stay in August). It couldn't be better placed for the centre of Bologna and yet the rooms were quiet and comfortable. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly and helped us with where to park and where to eat. I would definitely recommend... More

Upon check in I was told there was a bathroom problem in just my room and so I was being moved to the Hotel Palace nearby. The Palace Hotel was terrible but I had no choice. My money was gone and I was in town with a heavy bag and no bed. I paid €160 for Albergo Centrale direct to... More

Great location because situated in the city centre and also parking nearby. Friendly staff and good breakfast. Wifi should be free it is crazy they charge for this. The hotel is on the 4th floor only. Bathroom was very old, needs to be renewed as it is not hygienic this way. Rooms were okay, but nothing special. But it was... More

In most places on our trip we needed to hotel rooms. At Albergo Centrale we were able to stay in a single room with four beds! Great view from our window. Excellent breakfast. Very helpful staff. Perfect location.

This hotel was one of 6 we stayed in during our tour of Italy. This was by far the best hotel for the price; however, we booked through a secondary site that advertised a private bathroom and free wifi. This was not the case when we arrived, so we paid to upgrade to a room with a private bath and... More

Fantastic hotel in the city centre, a due passi da piazza maggiore. Very good service. My fridge was broken and it was replaced in one day. The breakfast is fantastic with a variety of choices. Airconditioning & comfortable rooms . I have already recommended this place to others.

I can definitely recommend this hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Hotel is nicely furnished, comfortable and the room and bathroom were clean. Breakfast was a big positive surprise, very delicious! Albergo Centrale has a perfect location, close to all the main attractions and shopping places, and not too far from the railway station either. This is a... More

When I do my reservation from web, hotel's name is "Hotel Centrale", but later I learned correct name is Hotel Albergo Centrale, that make me surprise. It's ok. Hotel's place is really good and easy to find (if you can find a correct bus). In a web, I read I have to take bus number 25 from train station... it's... More

We stayed here during the film festival last year and again this year. Service is good and rooms are quiet. Breakfast is great. Great location in centre of Bologna - very convenient. All staff are pleasant and welcoming.
