We stayed at the Novotel Fiera hotel in Bologna for five nights in July. Novotel is a chain. Everybody knows that and chains do what they are known for: they reproduce identical rooms all over the planet. You get the same bed, the same bed linen, the same paintings, the same sofa, the same sink etcetera everywhere you go. This... More

Very strange hotel. Modern infrastructure, pleasant rooms [despite a water leak], nice lobby- but most hotel services seem shambolic, few experienced staff, new staff under-trained, unsupervised and dispirited and in particular the restaurant very poor [and expensive- not a good combination!] Some examples: Reception check in, seemed like unsupervised new staff not knowing what they were doing.

Novotel is quickly becoming our new favourite place to stay. This was no exception. It is outside the center but that was fine for us. After spending the entire day exploring, it was wonderful to check in to this beautiful hotel. The staff was very friendly and our room beautiful!

The hotel is quite good, it's clean, the rooms are well equiped and new, the breakfast is ok. There is a nice swimming pool, quite large for a hotel pool, and in addition there are a table tennis, a kicker, and a gym with some running and weight equipment. All this for a reasonable price. Only the dinner is quite... More

Located in a very deserted part of town, but nevertheless easy to get to by taxi. The staff did make a good effort and were very friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately, I had a laundry list of problems during my 2 night stay here. Major issues: The air conditioner did not work properly at night, leaving the room extremely hot. The... More

This hotel was booked for us, as we were in Bologna for Fiera. The only disappointment was the lobby computer which was free but couldn't get into yahoo at all so could not check email.

Far from the city and close to the business centre it is more appropriate for business traveler than for tourists in holiday. The services and features are at Novotel standards but the price looks higher than the standard price.
