“Great location, exceptional staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2011

I stayed here for one night only. Although the hotel is fairly simple overall, the staff were extremely friendly and above all, honest. I realised at the airport check-in that I had left my laptop in my room. At most larger hotels you could kiss goodbye to that as room service staff have a habit of grabbing the odd souvenir. However, at this hotel the staff were honest and efficient enough to recover the laptop and have it delivered to the airport within 15 minutes - now that's service and one very happy camper - THANK YOU

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2010

The room I was given was a smoking room and it was stinking!!!!!!! When I asked to change it, the staff said there were no rooms available.
Breakfast plates and bowls are so small, that you have to re-fill tham 2-3 times if you want to eat normally.
Free Wi-Fi, shuttle to the airport (one way only) and location are quite nice.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2009

We picked this for the location to the airport... as we had a one night stop before a flight back to Spain. Location for airport is good, and its on a direct bus route into the city which only costs one euro, but much more by cab.
Room was over looking a big open space with flats opposite, but at the price of 75 euros we weren't expecting much scenery.
Room was clean and very large, and quiet. Staff found to be very helpful.
Breakfast was included with large choice, and restaurant next door as well. Although we got a take away from the Malaysian chinese rest across the road which was superb and fab value at 24 euros!!

This is a decent hotel in Bologna. The room and toilet are spacious and very clean. The temperature is fine. Breakfast is fine. My colleagues have complained about the noise but this has not really affected me. The food in the restaurant serves good Italian food (including tortellini al brado- a bologna specialty)and opens until mid-night.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2008

This was a nice hotel convenient to BLQ. My husband and I stayed here for one night at the end of a two week vacation in Italy. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful and although the decor is a little tired, the rooms were large and had modern updates like flat screened tv and wireless internet. The hotel was very clean and quiet and the restaurant next door provides great food for room service. It is about a ten minute drive to the airport. Note that it is not convenient to the city center - you need to take a bus or cab, but at that point in our trip, we just wanted to lay around the room and watch TV - they do have a good selection of channels including some in English and pay movies (although there were just two in English).

  • Liked — convenience to the airport

The rooms are badly insulated, and have furniture and carpets from the 70's. The bathroom is modern and clean though. Breakfast is rather ok, although not what you'd expect from a 4-star hotel. It's actually very suprising they ever got 4 stars.
If you're in a hurry and want a hotel close to the airport you might consider Amadeus, otherwise : try and avoid it !

I stayed for 7 days at the Amadeus. It is a very nice place, a little out of the city, but there is an excellent bus service which takes about 20 minutes to the centre of Bologna. The room was large and quite comfortable, breakfast gives you a very large choice and the bar is quite good.
There is no restaurant in the hotel so you have to eat out, but there are several good places nearby, including one that is next to the hotel but has a seperate management.
If you have any business with the Ducati motorcycle firm it is just round the corner.
By the way, get on the web and check out the number 54 bus; runs to the airport about once an hour for 1euro (taxi about 12 euro). Bus company is ATC Bologna.
Above all the reason why I shall be going back is the staff, very friendly and helpful. I recommend this place.
