“Good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2008

Very good location for exploring central Bologna, overall facilities were fine. Very floral rooms that could do with a refit but spacious with large but basic ensuite. We were lucky enough to be on the top floor with a little terrace overlooking the city which was a bonus. Good hotel for tourists planning to enjoy Bologna, not really for honeymooners.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2007

Very comfortable stay at the Hotel Roma in October 2007. Comfortable bed with a nice big bathroom, very clean room, helpful staff. Great location - wonderful for walkers - just south of Piazza Maggiore with a good selection of restaurants, shops, cafes and gelato nearby (Grom next door has terrific gelato). My room overlooked Via d'Azeglio in the front, and music and noise carries down from the Piazza, so either
bring earplugs or ask for a room in the back (I rather enjoyed the buzz of activity, though). About the only negatives were a small shower (common in Italy though), and a rather dowdy/old fashioned decor (pink rose wallpaper). But all in all a very good value for a nice old fashioned hotel with some character in a delightfully un-touristy city.

Wonderful location, smack in the center, in a nice shopping street, closed to traffic. the hotel will arrange the permit to get to there with the car and then valet park it outside the pedestrian area (included in the price!). the room was wonderful, the bed even better...
i was there only one night and regretted to leave. I had a good feeling with the staff, they were very helpful in giving me the right direction to get there.
definitely recommended!

We were supposed to stay 3 nights, but the hotel staff did not make us feel welcome. Lobby areas are large and somewhat elegant, but room was small. Bed was poor. Alley noise very loud. We found a hotel around the corner and moved.

Great location, and wonderful "5-star" service.

My parents and I showed up on a Fri afternoon with no reservations (in November). They set us up with a single and double adjacent rooms and very resonably priced parking.

The gentleman at reception was extremely friendly and full of advice on where to go eat, have a drink, etc. We were late for a tour at 1030 so we requested a late checkout to save time. They didn't even bat and eye and offerred a 1400 checkout time at no extra cost.

We checked out at 1400 and went out for a late lunch and asked to leave the car with the valet for another hour, again they were very accomodating, I didn't even pick the car up until 1600.

Downside: don't know if this level of service exists in the peak season. The breakfast was very basic, no eggs, watered down juice and bitter coffee. I don't know if I could have found it without a GPS!

Regardless, I would definitely go back!

We turned up at this hotel in the evening and got a good deal on the room rate and valet parking.

Our room was big, clean and a good sized bathroom. Nothing to complain about. The Rough Guide says the decor is kitschy - I can see why, but we liked it as it was different from the same old decor you get used to with other mainstream hotels.

The hotel was in an excellent location and although it seemed a bit dated we were really pleased with it and would go back. You could walk to the main square and tourist areas with no trouble.

The service was fine at the Hotel Roma, but the noise from the alley below was too loud - even with earplugs. The chambermaids began cleaning adjacent rooms at 9 AM - also quite loudly.

The location is perfect, however.
