Smart HI Express conveniently located for Bologna and with a shopping mall just across the road. Recommend the two restaurants win walking distance - good value and traditional food. Free wifi for Priority Club members.

Very good hotel, spacious rooms, very rich breakfast, excellent personnel. Very cheap and high quality.I recommend it to everyone. A little bit far from the city center, we rented a car and didn't need to use public transportation.

This hotel is situated in area which is near to the highway and is just 100 metre from Bologna Commercial Centre where you can find everything that you need for your short/long stay into the hotel. The area is very quiet and surrounded with many green parks, also.

Room Tip: You have to miss only the first floor.

Excellent service, this is a nice Holiday Inn Express hotel and they serve an excellent complimentary breakfast in the morning. Restaurant on site which is very convenient if you don't want to go out in the evening. Rooms are comfortable and efficient.

Make no mistake this hotel is quite far out of the town opposite a retail park and with very little else around it. A taxi to the city centre is about 15 Euros and there is little public transport options as an alternative.

Bizarrely the hotels restaurant, such as it is, is closed on Sunday evenings.

Room Tip: They're pretty much the same.

Dear AJSGILLAM,

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. It is disappointing that you found our location to be a bit inaccessible for your needs and the restaurant service was not at what you would have expected. We take all feedback negative or positive very seriously and yours will be used to improve on what we can offer.

While we understand that your stay was not 100% satisfactory, we would hope that you would give us another chance to make your stay as best as it can be.

Regards,

Very close located to the Tangenziale which is a partly rind road around Bologna. Not too far from Bologna airport and perfect to reach city centre. Excellent parking behind the hotel which is kept under supervisor by camera's at reception desk, though parking is not locked during the night. Over several days, we got excellent tips on mountain roads to drive (we were 3 motor bike enthousiasts and that helped us greatly to do what we came for!), restaurants to do, places to see from the guest service manager Patrick Petroncini. He was very pleasant, very polite and excetionally friendly. He recomanded Anna Maria restaurant in Bologna which is a MUST do. Also Antica tratoria San Sisto, veru close to hotel which is grzat if you dont want to hit the town centre (which can be busy).

Room Tip: Take room with windo looking at back of hotel (parking lot)

Stayed in Bologna only two days. Clean, comfortable hotel with a decent breakfast in the morning. Staff very accomodating and recommended a lovely restaurant close by for dinner. The only disadvantage is no free wi-fi. I found this a bit unusual for a hotel.
