“Refurbished wing's rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

I just spent two nights with my love in this hotel and I want to say that is perfect for this city, just make sure that you are staying in the new wing, the old one is ugly, we stayed at the fourth floor (room 439) and it was perfect for a couple, it looks as if it is a buisiness hotel but it doesnt matter because the staff is very helpfull in any aspect and the location is just perfect, right in the middle of everything and ten minutes walk from piazza Magiore wich is the beating heart of the city. It is not an expensive hotel and has a great breakfast buffet so, overall I would take it again , for sure.

Perfect modern hotel, 2 mins. walk from station. Just what we wanted for a 2 night stay in Bologna as the city is easily walkable to most attractions. Very clean, modern, free WiFi, good service and breakfast. Just a very modern style hotel but excellent value for money.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

On first impressions the hotel reception provides a clean and welcoming feel. Enter the rooms and it's another story. The rooms are nothing if not tired and not in keeping with the reception area and exterior. It's almost like this hotel had a split personality, one aimed at the clean sleek conference clientele and the other an unkempt and unloved heart.

The room I was given was very dusty. There was dust visible on the bedside table, TV, on the bathroom fittings and in the corners of the carpet. Something tells me there isn't a focus on vacuuming.

The overriding problem with this visit was the cooling of the room. I visited late April when there was a bit of a heatwave for the time of year and was 28 degrees. The thing I had issue with was that I was unable to cool the room as the AC wasn't due to be turned on until 15th May. A bit of a problem as the room thermostat was showing a room temperature of 26 degrees at 1am. I asked why the AC couldn't be turned on but was just given the answer that it was due to be turned on on the 15th May. The reply was indifferent and was given with a hint of 'my hands are tied'. I wasn't given any reason as to why the AC couldn't be turned on early and so I was left frustrated with the problem. I was able to get a fan delivered to the room though. I could also open the window in this room which was good, however, even at 1am the streets were still noisy and when morning broke it was even noisier and the sun was shining directly on my bed.

All in all not a very restful nights sleep and I was unimpressed. What use is it paying to stay in a hotel that doesn't have your comfort at the centre of what they do? Surely you are paying for the comfort they should be providing?

The minibar was also warm and couldn't cool any of the contents and there were only 3 plug sockets in the entire room, one by the door, one on the desk and one in the bathroom. Not very useful if you have to plug in several items at once.

Things this hotel has going for it is the proximity to both the airport and the town centre.

Wouldn't choose to stay here for pleasure but it is right next to the station. (Fast train to Florence in 37 mins).
Clean enough but it is in need of a good refurb. Staff pleasant enough, didn't receive wake up call for my early flight (always set my own 'phone alarm anyway).

Anybody arriving at Bologna late at night or for a short stay should think of staying at this hotel. When you get off the train after a hard day's travel, all you want is a shower to get the grime off you and a comfortable bed to sleep in and one can find both of these at this hotel just five minutes after leaving the station! It is clean, the staff is friendly, the bathroom modern and roomy and the breakfast very good with a good selection of both a cooked and a cold buffet. Another plus for its location is that one can get a bus to the airport from the square a hundred meters away from it. The city center is just a couple of hundred meters' walk along a straight road!

Room Tip: We stayed at this hotel twice and the first room was close to the elevator and very good; the second...

Great location just a short walk from the station and the shops and attractions are nearby. Pricey at 135 Euros per night, breakfast very good selection of hot and cold buffet. Internet is expensive in the lobby 1 Euro per 3 minutes.
The room was large but odshaped the tv was small and the bathroom was large but we were dissapointed with the dirty floor. Lobby staff very good always willing to help and quick

Room Tip: Very near to Railway station and located well for all the attractions.

Great location, friendly stuff and reasonable price but shower was only producing cold water, breakfast was poor quality and there was not enough personnel for table service and check in/out. Not to mention that door couldn't be locked.
