We booked a room with a king bed and by the time we arrived there, we've got a 2 beds room. It was freezing cold inside the room! As we spent most of the day out, in the night when we came back inside the room was not such a big difference comparing to January whether from outside. No bed... More

I stayed here for 2 nights. The reason for my visit was to watch the international football game between Italy and Romania at the Bologna FC Stadium. To get to the hotel simply take the airport bus marked BLQ. Get off at the Maggiore Hospital. Walk for some 10 minutes down the road towards the City centre and you will... More

Very 70s feel but big rooms with lots of useful mirrors. Room temperature was perfect at night and I slept well. Massive windows but double glazed. The breakfast was quite impressive, with cheese and cold meats, fruit and croissants, juice and coffee. The hotel had a relaxed feel. It was far better than I would have expected for the price....

The hotel is very worn out. It is trying to look like a grand hotel but I'm afraid it is no longer the case. The lobby looks dark due to its wooden panels. I've never been to a hotel where there a was queue of guests in the reception. Our room was in the top floor. Yes it is huge... More

The 1970s are alive and kicking in the decor of the Hotel Grand Elite, time for a refresh I think! But that aside, a really comfortable and welcoming hotel to stay at. Everyone that I dealt with at the hotel, reception, IT, and in the restaurant, were great. Those in the restaurant were particularly helpful and really know how to... More

Friendly staff in the reception, big rooms and it looks clean. Wifi at the hotel was ok when it worked but it was on and off. I used the wifi at the hotel next door and that was much better. Price was a bit stiff for the hotel.
