A friend and I stayed for 4 nights at Hotel Centro Turistico Citta di Bologna. We stayed in one of the chalets, had a double bed which was comfy. There was a fridge which was useful but it could do with a kettle. Hot water in the shower took quite a few minutes to come through. Also the shower head rarely stayed still as the pipe attached to it was damaged and bent. A cleaner comes and puts fresh towels in bathroom everyday. There were little safes located in reception where you could store valuables at no extra cost.
Hotel Centro Turistico Citta di Bologna is located quite a way from the city centre, bus 68 leaves from outside reception (every 2 hours - 9am, 11am, 1pm etc.) which goes to Bus Station (near train station) and Millie (end stop) which is then a 10-15 minute walk from the centre. There was also bus 25 (stop was called Dozza) that was located 10-15 minute walk away through country lanes that was a lot more frequent and ran till a lot later too. It stopped at Bologna Centrale train station and stops closer to the centre.
One of the guys on reception was very rude and had completely the wrong attitude for that kind of job. You're allowed 15 minutes wifi a day otherwise its €2 an hour which seems extreme considering they claim they are always busy and full so they could I'm sure lower the cost or make it free.
Overall, I wouldn't recommend staying at Hotel Centro Turistico Citta di Bologna and personally wouldn't stay there again if I was to ever visit Bologna again. It's just too remote and not very good value for money.
