Very old equipment in bad shape. Probably used to be a modern hotel some 50 years ago. If you are attracted by old run-down go for it. But be careful if you suffer from the dust. Nowadays the only advantage is the location, very central in Bologna. Personnel just about kind, often shabby. Breakfast is very poor, with just decent... More

Tired old hotel with NO AIR CONDITIONING - not 3* Pros: Location was convenient. The view from our window was nice (since we had to have it open the whole time). The TV worked. Bologna is a wonderful city - an amazing place to visit. Cons: COMPLETE LACK OF AIR CONDITIONING. The tired state of the rooms/corridors. The discoloured bathroom... More

My husband and I travelled to Bologna and stayed at this hotel. It was a pleasant stay. The hotel was very cozy. Very centrally located. We had our own balcony too. Little breakfast buffet (dont expect too much). But it was perfect. The only problem we had one night the fire alarm went off, we all went down and the... More

I suppose it would be nice to stay in a luxury hotel, the sort you see in films but I'm only a lecturer so I can't afford those places. I do however love to visit historic cities and spend a week mooching around little medieval streets and stopping to eat in charming, quiet restaurants. The Hotel Palace has undoubtedly seen... More

The hotel has this charm of the past glories. I found it pretty nice and still majestic but I reckon it may look a bit outdated for those who like more modern amenities. The reception staff was friendly and helpful even though some of them spoke little English. The only disappointment was the breakfast buffet, the food was good but... More

Not friendly, rooms very small, rooms smelly, showers terrible, air-con not working, TV not working, breakfast ok, but never again. Very disappointed as the name does definitely not match the hotel. Only advantage is that it is very close to the centre

Hotel is very centrally located in quiet street. The double room we had was perfectly adequate - thoroughly cleaned every day and fresh towels left out. The bathroom was small but spotlessly clean. I would have to say that a larger person would perhaps have difficulty with the small, but very very effective shower. Breakfast, which was included, was extremely... More

When entering the hotel everything looked fine as a 3 star hotel. The reception, corridor and decor normal. But when you enter your room it looks like a horror show. Everything inside the rooms are old and not functioning well. Tiny bed on wheels, mattress creaks and hard. The bathroom even smaller, but clean enough. I could not get any... More
