A good standard city centre hotel in a convenient location to explore the city. Overall it was good value. Clean, comfortable and I enjoyed a good night’s sleep. No complaints but not much to shout about either.

We stayed here for 4 nights and were initially very pleased with the price we paid for the rooms. There were a few downsides - the air conditioning worked on the first night but then failed to work and the rooms were very, very hot. After checking with reception, we were told that, as it was October, the air con... More

Great place to stay. Staff was super friendly and spoke English well. Room was super clean and they had a nice breakfast buffet in the morning. It was very affordable and safe it was well worth the money.

Luckily we only stayed one night as we passed through Bologna. The hotel lobby gave a good initial impression and the check in staff were friendly and efficient. The problem was that they gave us a disabled room on the third floor (314). The room feels dated and there are stains on the ceiling. The bathroom is set up for... More

When picking a hotel in Bologna, we were confused whether or not to be a little bit "out" of town, or to stay in the hubbub - in the end we plumped for the BW and I'm so pleased we did, as it was quiet, calm and very welcoming. The reception staff couldn't have been more helpful and the room... More

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
