The location is fine, the bus line 25 is right in front- it goes to the main station and to downtown. Personal is very nice and tolerant regarding the check out time. Rooms are clean and spacious. Breakfast is pretty good compared to what we had in Italy in general. We would go back there if we go to Bologne.

We are currently staying in this hotel. The room is a decent size and bathroom too but the facilities are missing and it's extremely noisy. We have been put in a room on the 1st floor and the noise from reception and all other customers is bad. The doors on the rooms are not closing correctly and have electronic latches... More

I booked in advance, at a very reasonable price, 63 euro per night for a triple room. The room was fairly basic, however clean. Other reviews say it all, an easy taxi service arriving at airport and efficient bus service to Bologna. Breakfast was efficient and set us up for the day. We asked for a dining suggestion, again a... More

We have just returned from our 1 week stay at Imperial Hotel Bologna. We are satisfied with the whole staff who although we could communicate with them speaking Italian they all speak good English. Room was always cleaned & sheets & towels changed every day & even the buffet breakfast was very good and a very good assortment of things.... More

It is a bit far from the city centre but close to the airport. The hotel room is big with all necessary basic stuff. Limited choice for breakfast but enough. Staff are friendly and helpful. My biggest complaint is the hairdryer which carries a burning smell when you use it. I dare not use it.

Everytime I have to stay in Bologna for the night, I book Hotel Imperial. It has everything I need: nice rooms, free parking lot, nice staff, and a really good breakfast. Location is pretty good too...not too far from the center Recommended!

It's ok for a nights sleep until cleaners in the morning started to Hoover outside the door and chatting loudly. Staff were not very welcoming either. I would avoid if you can get somewhere else I would The outside area was dirty with broken chairs in view , and you are not really near anywhere to eat or drink

I spent a night here with my boyfriend to get an early flight from bologna Marconi airport the next morning. It's the perfect place to spend a night because it's close to the airport and to the bus stop so that you can reach both the city centre and the airport easily without the car. It's clean and tidy and... More
