Not sure why this is rated so highly. Yes, the staff are friendly and it is quiet, but the rooms are not well equipped. The shower door was rusty and falling off, there was no soap provided (nothing but a couple of shower caps and one glass). The mini bar/fridge was empty. Just one blanket on the bed and one... More

I would say the price on the hotel was average for the area, so we chose the Imperial because it offered a gym. When we got there, we were disappointed at not having coffee making facilities in the room, like several pictures show. I was told that we needed to book a 'superior' room for that, or else pay Eur.10... More

The room is great! Access to public transportation is also fantastic. They also give you the option of taking a bike to visit the city, the staff spoke a above average level of English than what I experienced in the rest of Italy. If you go to Bologna it is worth renting a room here. P.S The breakfast, which was... More

Hotel is only 10-15 minutes by car from fiera and motorway exit if there is no traffic. I am attaching the photos of the room. Unfortunately the hotel is new but very badly dirty. They only have liquid soap and if it finishes in the afternoon they can not renew because the cleaning ladies are now work. There was a... More

We stayed the night before our flight due to the excellent value, free parking and location in proximity to the airport. We arrived after a long drive and were pleasantly surprised to find a spacious room with a large, comfortable bed. After graciously leaving the hire car in the car park we caught the bus into the city centre to... More
