Very good hotel and quality service overall. Also the price is very good. The rooms are very big and modern and had a great view from the 6th floor. The breakfast is very good and you have a lot to choose from. Would recommend this hotel for sure!

Given the positive reviews for this hotel, I’m hoping my experience was atypical. Service was friendly but there were several annoyances during my stay. First, the hotel lost my reservation. I was put in a 3rd floor room for handicapped guests. With the shower basin at floor level, the floor became soaked after each shower. On my first night, I... More

We were very pleased with this hotel- well situated near to one of the gates into the city and within easy walking distance to the heart of Bologna. Modern in style, the rooms and public areas were spotless. Included was a safe and mini bar,plus hairdryer and toiletries. The buffet breakfast had good quality food with a wide range of... More

The hotel is a little outside the Old City perimeter. This is modern and efficient design very suitable for business trips. There is convenient parking, note if arriving by car, on arrival a little vague and public transport routes therefore pay attention to get the right direction to not get a traffic ticket. Better to have dinner at a restaurant... More

This hotel was a great choice and we were very satisfied. Had all the service we needed at a great price. The hotel is very clean and close to the city center (15 minute walk). Above all, the staff is very friendly and helpful. Panoramic rooms offer a great view of Bologna as does the rooftop terrace. Breakfast service and... More

Spent three nights here with my family on in July 2014. The hotel was well located for travelers with a car and has an adjacent parking lot, and a ten minute walk to the Piazza Maggiore and the main tourist sites. Bologna is very real Italy with few tourists. Restaurants are excellent and less expensive than many other Italian cities.... More

If you don't mind the walk into the center of town (maybe 15 minutes or so), this is a great place to stay. First, it is on a bit of a rise and has a beautiful, panoramic view of Bologna. It is quite modern, very clean, and the breakfasts were very good. Staff was efficient and helpful. Nice attached garage... More

Hotel is clean, quiet, everything is professional, hotel staff is friendly and helpful. breakfast is good. But don´t like me the look of the rooms and common areas, everything is arranged purposefully, impersonal and cold. I miss the typical Italian character. The closest vicinity of the hotel is not very nice. The advantage is too close to the historic center... More
