This is a vert effective, no thrills hotel. I can't speak for the bedrooms in the main building but our bedroom in the annexe was spacious and spotless with a very comfortable bed. It was about 30metres round the corner so whilst thi sis ok in fine weather I can imagine you wouldn't be best pleased having to walk to the hotel for breakfast through wind and rain!
Having said that, the reception area was clean and tidy and staff very friendly and helpful. The breakfast room was small but tables cleared promptly as and when peole finished. Breakfast itself was perfectably acceptable without being anythig special.
The good thing about the hotel was secure on site parking easily accessible without having to drive too far into the old centre and at a reasonable rate of €12 overnight (as an indication, parking in the street nearby was €0.80 an hour) - and they were quite happy with us leaving the car for a few hours after checking out to enable us to continue exploring for a little longer.
To stroll to Piazza Maggiore takes about 10 - 15mins direct but Bologna is a nice enough city that you're better off meandering in that general direction and seeing what happens!
All in all a very acceptable, reasonably priced hotel
