Stayed here 2 nights in September 2016 and found it to be a very good hotel. Was given a large room with a double bed and 2 singles and a kitchen, which was huge as I was by myself. The bed was quite comfortable as was the room. It was a very 70's retro look to the room but only... More

I will start by saying this hotel is okay but not great. The reason I rate it so lowly is that it is billed as a 4 Star hotel and in my opinion fails to meet the mark. The hotel does not have a central location, being a 20/30 minute walk from the historic town centre. The decor i understand... More

Nice room, friendly receptioniest and a good restaurant. I travel back here once again. The old downtown is near to the hotel, in front of the hotel is a bus stop, so the traffic is very good. From the airport we can go here with Aerobous, it has a stop near to the hotel.

Pleasant staff, good service and a comfortable spacious family room. A short taxi ride into the centre of town and to the airport. Bologne is a beautiful city with interesting architecture. Drinks with tapas in town very good value. Breakfast in the hotel has lots of variety for the family.

We were looking for a decent, affordable hotel, at a reasonable distance from the center. Grand Hotel Elite was a good choice. Clean, spaciouse rooms, good breakfast. Retro look, true, but this was no surprise, as this was mentioned on the reservation site. For us, the "vintage" aspect was not a problem, brought an extra charm to our city break.... More

We were in a short break in Bologna as part of our tour of northern Italy. Bologna is a lovely baroque city with lots of narrow streets full of lovely restaurants etc. This hotel is on a direct bus line into the city centre but only takes about 20 minutes to walk in. They also have a deal on secure... More

The rooms are old but very clean and adequate in size. The hotel is not that close to the city center, you have to take a 10 minutes bus ride. The bus station is right in front of the hotel which is great. We were actually expecting something generally better.
