Large suite like room with kitchen area, leather couches. The staff was very attentive and helpful. The breakfast was very very nice. The location to the center was very nice half-mile. We would definitely choose to use his hotel again if we were in Bologna.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for a total of four nights. Our experience was like this: Pro - close to the city center - walking distance of about 2 to 3 km - approximately 15-20 minutes; - close to a supermarket - where you can buy what you need or want - mind the closing time -... More

The only things that let the hotel down are the hard beds and the warm rooms at night otherwise it was very clean and well maintained, the staff were helpful and pleasant, the rooms were well laid out but didn't have a seating area. It was a short walk into the centro storico. The wifi was rather slow and kept... More

Decent, clean hotel, though very dated and sombre decor throughout (chocolate-coloured walls, floor, bedlinen, furniture). Staff the main redeeming feature as they were professional and helpful and you can walk into the city in 30 mins. For a hotel which claims to be five star, there isn't a kettle in your room or even a bottle of water. Breakfast wasn't... More

This hotel is just outside the centre of Bologna, the room was spacious, we had three good sized beds that were all comfortable. There was two wardrobes and lots of storage. A fridge, and a bathroom with a good sized shower. My only downside was the hotel restaurant - which was fine for breakfast - which was very good, but... More

More negative than positive. Lobby area as nice as in photos but not so much elsewhere. First hotel employee we came into contact with was rude. Parking underneath tight/confusing in large part due to hotel employees rudeness. Elevator access was nice. Bedding lumpy, wifi slow. Balcony was difficult to access because the doors interfered with one another. Great location and... More

The hotel interior is very nice and clean, however the layout is odd, and styling is straight from the 70s. The staff are very friendly, helpful and polite, our Baggage was taken to our room on arrival, commensurate with a 4 star standard. I would like to make a special point of mentioning the cleaners, our room was always immaculate... More

We found the hotel Elite, clean and comfortable. The staff were professional and in the main friendly but not overly welcoming. The room (107) was of good size and although at the front of the hotel we weren't bothered by road noise. What was a problem was the room above which was probably a store-room or rest-room for the staff.... More
