It's 4km far from city center but more convenient and connectivity to all places. Good hospitality. Wifi speed is quite low and most of time no working properly. We... More

I was not planning to stay in Bologna but wound up doing so and chose this hotel for my BW points and free parking. Bologna turned out to be a lot more interesting so I extended my visit.

If you have to be in this area for business or for sake of the hospital opposite of this Hotel than either this hotel or the Amadeus Hotel are a wise choice. The Best Western is a small and simple hotel. It's old, things go slow and breakfast is not a feast at all. This hotel offered a hard bed... More

Spend 3 nights at this wonderful hotel. Rooms are clean and comfortable, everything is there. The owner and the staff really understand the hospitality business. Very friendly and they go the extra mile for you! Breakfast is enormous to Italian standards. Prosciutto, salmon, scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, etc etc. Great place for families and business. Highly recommendable!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Maggiore Bologna is a welcoming place and we deeply take care of our guests. Our aim is to make you "Feel at Home". The slender eight storey building which houses the hotel rises up in a very unusual place, a connection point between the city centre of Bologna and the Emilian productive areas, a lively and hardworking area rich in Italian excellences and multiculturalism. The hotel is in a central location, out of the controlled traffic zone, next to the Ospedale Maggiore, at 1.5 km from the historic centre (easily accessible by bus or by bike), at ten minutes from the airport, the Ducati headquarters, the Unipol Arena centre, next to important companies and important scientific and cultural centres such as the Opificio Golinelli and the MAST. It is easily accessible from the motorway and the main communications routes and we offer a free parking service. Core of our idea of welcoming are the central location, our friendliness and the attention to every detail. As well as wanting you to "Feel at Home", we also commit for a sustainable mobility. Among our facilities you'll find a free parking service, a shuttle service, a bycicle rental service, both for traditional bikes and e-bikes, bus tickets at our reception desk. Finally, we'll be very happy to give you information on events not to be missed and places to see in the city and province. ... more   less
