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!

It can be a bit hard to find the first time, as the lobby is on the third floor, but Albergo Centrale is a comfortable, pleasant place with a very welcoming staff in the heart of Bologna. It's only a few steps from the Piazza Maggiore and lots of good restaurants and shops. And the staff will happily recommend places... More

Visited Bologna at easter weekend with my wife. She had been recommended to Albergo Centrale by a work colleague. We arrived at 11.00am local time after a 17 Euro taxi ride from the airport - excellent value. The hotel is on the 3rd floor of an old building 10 yards off the main road Ugo Basi (which becomes Via Rizzoli).... More

Great location, nice staff, good breakfast, large 4-bed room, value for money. Only problem was the shower: very little water and either scalding hot or ice cold. Such a shame as everything else was good.

The wifi on the hotel was not good, slow and unstable. It's also on 3rd floor in an office building, with no real entrance and an elevator before you come to the reception. But that Works, baceuse the hotel is very central, only 200 meters from Piazze Macchiore that is the centre of Bologna. The rooms needs an upgrade. Breaksfast... More

This hotel was in a good location, not too far from the train station, though I would recommend getting a cab if you have luggage (only 8-10 euros). While not fancy, the fact that there were a couple of comfortable lounges to hang out in was appreciated as we were traveling with another couple. The breakfast room and food choices... More

Perfect for a family with a good price - value ratio offering an excellent breakfast and always very good hints for a pleasant stay. The central position is ideal to move around Bologna and the four-bed room with its exciting view over the roofs adds up to make the albergo central an ideal place to stay in Bologna

Well as far as the name goes Albergo Centrale is right in the heart of it all! Parking just around the corner (and you get a free 24 hour bus ticket for every 24 hour 9€ parking ticket). Restaurants, bars, shops and main attractions are all in walking vicinity. The staff couldn't have been more cordial, helpful and informative. Breakfast... More
