..right at the heart of Bologna. Really nice, friendly and helpful staff throughout and especially at Breakfast. Surprised to get a single bed ( don't see those much nowadays) but it was comfortable and clean, with nice little touches. It was a small room but had a double private terrace and was quiet at night given the location ( I... More

Nice hotel in the heart of Bologna. An a walking distance of all must-see's and surrounded by restaurants and pubs. The rooms were clean and large enough. Bathroom good but no luxury. Shower was a bit cramped. Beds and linen were OK. Breakfast very good for an Italian hotel. Friendly and helpfull staff. Ask for a room at the backside... More

This is a 2 star hotel in us. Advertises air but not turned on room very warm. Beds small , shower tiny barely can turn around. This was not a great stay. Our hotel in Milan was excellent and truthfully I have had better accommodations in tiny towns in other countries with lower ratings

Rather than take the airport bus and a hefty walk we jumped a taxi for 17.5 euros. The location is unbelievable. There is a large courtyard bar 15 yards outside the hotel door. A further 100 yards and you are within touching distance of the Two Towers. A host of cafes / restaurants are in the surrounding streets. We were... More

I have just reurned from a weekend break at this hotel and was very pleased at our choice. The location was terrific, the staff were great and the breakfast was excellent. The hotel has a nice little bar on the 2nd floor which also supplies free tea and coffee in the afternoon (with a nice little terrace) and also has... More

We recently stayed here for 4 nights, and couldn't have been happier. Great location, great staff, good breakfast to start the day, right near the two towers, a block from the heart of the University, nice clean well appointed rooms, good wifi service, Great observsation deck for a panorama view of the city. Would go back in a heartbeat!

The location is excellent. Even though the rooms were on the smallish side and could do with a little updating,the rooms were spotless and everything wored well.The staff was very pleasant and and all so helpful. Breakfast was great as well. To be recommended.

Best Western - not where I would normally stay either in the US or when travelling abroad - but in this case, it was a great choice. Every person at the hotel seemed happy to see me - from the front desk to the cleaning personnel and the people behind the bar. Front desk folks were very helpful - and... More

Lovely hotel in the middle of it all. Great breakfast selection and service. There is a lovely terrace to enjoy breakfast on or even a cheeky bottle of red at the end of a long day sightseeing. Not far form anything, cheap eats, local restaurants, piazza's. Perfect

We had an excellent stay over a long weekend. The location is perfect, although if your room is at the front of the hotel noise might just be a problem. There is a lovely second floor terrace bar where you can also take breakfast, and the views from the fourth floor terrace are good. Our room was unspectacular, but perfectly... More
