We arrive late at the hotel and we stayed for 2 weeks. Because it was late we couldn't eat from the hotel, and I asked the receptionist to order a pizza or something to eat, he said he did, but he didn't , nothing to eat at midnight so I waited for pizza about 2 hours and never came, we... More

If you stay there with tourist group, 1. Your breakfast will be served separately from individual guests - guess why? It will be quite poor if compared with other guests and you will want 2nd breakfast soon after. 2. There is only few people working in restaurant and they don't hurry to take away dirty dishes. 3. A/C in our... More

Stayed here for 3 nights to start a 2 week tour of Tuscany. 20 minutes from the airport, 15 minutes into the City by Taxi, this Hotel ticked all the boxes for what we wanted.

The room we had was comfortable. Unfortunally it didn't have a fridge/mini-bar, so the hotel staff had left a few minibar options on the floor... The hotel says that the whole area is wifi-usable, but it isn't. Inside the hotel the wifi is acceptable, but at the pool, there isn't any wificonnection... The staff in the reception was very stiff... More

We stayed at the Living place hotel for 3 nights and truly enjoyed our stay. The location is good, within walking distance to the bus that takes you to Bologna town centre. The hotel has a nice restaurant and a big swimming pool.

So the hotel is kinda acceptable but is really away from the center, so I would guess that you are there for business. GOOD LUCK with checking your email, not even think about doing a Skype call, or even opening any website that is not in mobile mode. Is simply ridiculous. I certainly do not understand how an hotel like... More

I stayed here for 5 days and the hotel, staff and facilities were good. My greatest disappointment in the hot Italian sun was that the swimming pool and sun bathing areas of the grounds were not ready, no water in the pool and no sun beds. I think the website rather than saying it was open seasonally should be more... More

The only positive we can give this hotel is the cleaning ladies work. Good job! Everything else was terrible. Beds- Hard, the pillows felt like cement blocks. Breakfast, everything was cold. Even when they came directly out from kitchen the egg and bacon was cold. If you are lucky the internet works. Wanna go into the city and eat? Do... More
