BW is our go-to brand whenever we travel, did not disappoint in Bologna! The bed was harder than what we are normally used to and shower a tad tiny, but overall a well-equipped room and a pleasant one-night stay for us. It's an extremely welcoming and presentable hotel no less. Good location, 5-10 minute bus ride to the train station... More

We got a very warm welcome here and the room was really very nice for this price category with lots of space, a nice wooden floor, desk and even a walk-in wardrobe. Everything was spotlessly clean. Although there is no safe in the room itself, we could store our valuables downstairs in safe deposit boxes in the reception area. The... More

For walking lovers, it's within walking distance (25 - 30 min) from downtown and from the train station (about 10 min). Additionally, it offers the security of a... More

The hotel was relatively easy to get to by bus or taxi. A few local eateries and small grocer's within walking distance otherwise a taxi or bus 27 will take you right to the central train station which gives you access to every mode of transport. A 24 hours bus pass is only 5 Euro, which can be bought in... More

The hotel was nice and the wifi worked well. The breakfast was good. The hotel was clean, nice bed and bathroom, but the receptionists were not friendly or helpful at all. I asked for a map and some places they would recommend to visit. I received eye rolls and attitude. I had previously booked a room through trip advisor and... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night, the bathroom was huge, the bed comfortable. We booked this hotel because they offered gluten free breakfast, that was quite a disappointment though. I mean, you would expect something else than rice cakes and cornflakes when they explicitely advertise having gluten free food. It wouldn't hurt to get a piece of bread... More
