Espressohotel Bologna Centrale
Ranked #70 of 102 Hotels in Bologna
Reviewed July 2, 2011

Stayed here for the second time and like the location very close to the railway and bus stations; airport bus stops at railway stations and for appointments or visit fair grounds/convention center local bused can be used. Nice room with modern bath room, free internet; city cemter at 10 minute walk. Outside hotel not very attractive. Restaurant is not operated by hotel and offers very limited choice/ Breakfast to Italian standards OK.
Staff very helpful and good English.
Street noise in rooms at front side hotel.

It's conveniently located, just steps away from the central station in Bologna. Spartan exterior with modern interior design, good shower room and very comfortable bed. No-nonsense service. Parking is €15 a day and internet is free. Plenty of business travelers but also ok for families. Would stay again!

This hotel was really excellent value for money. It had a new, stylish and up to date feel about it (see phone pics). The bathroom was well equipped and the wi-fi was free. The bed was comfortable and the staff were helpful and likeable. Also, the minibar contents (four soft drinks) were free!

On the down side, the breakfast wasn’t particularly great and the location means a 15 minute walk to the centre of Bologna. However, overall, we’d definitely recommend this place, especially if you’re looking for outstanding value.

Previous stop: Ruzzini Palace, Venice
HOTEL: (2 nights) The hotel was nice. It has a modern style. It is very close to the train station- you can walk and don’t need a taxi. But it was a really long walk into Bologna. One nice thing about being out of the way is you see a lot more, but I’d still prefer to be closer in. We ate dinner at the hotel one night. It was very good but expensive. I think there was only one other couple eating. Breakfast was good (for Italy). Service was good and helpful. We didn’t ask for anything special. There is a great little pizza place nearby- go left out of the hotel and it’s down on the left.
BOLOGNA: We walked through the park which I’d recommend. The porticos are very pretty. Neptune’s fountain would have to be the most “interesting” fountain we saw in Italy. Overall Bologna was just OK. We went there to go on the Ferrari/Lamborghini tour which was Awesome! I’d HIGHLY recommend it, and our tour guide was the best, friendly and courteous. He had worked at both plants and was very knowledgeable-

ITALY: Try to speak Italian as good and as much as you can. Don’t use any suspicious ATM and cover your hand when you enter your pin. Be very mindful of pick pockets. The names of the streets are etched on the corner of buildings ~10 feet off the ground. Bring a good camera. and one that can take good pics without a flash (Most indoor places allow picture taking without a flash). Definitely bring good walking shoes. The ground is stone or marble and very uneven unless you're in a church. Sandals and heels are not good. Bring a washcloth/puff. The hotels don't have them. Ladies, after a long touring day it's nice to take a shower before dinner, so bring lots of clean underwear :)
We had the best travel agent and highly recommend her:

Room was bright, clean and modern but quite small and not alot of space to store your clothes. Bathroom had a lovely hugh shower. Location - pro is that it's only a 5 minute walk into the centre of Bologna but the immediate location is not that great - right on a busy main road and the unit next door was derelict so quite unslightly. We only had breakfast there - it was OK - if you like sweet stuff for breakfast then this is the place for you - loads of cakes and even tiramisu and choice of other chilled desserts in the fridge! The restaurant in the evening seemed busy and lively when we went out every evening. Staff on reception were helpful. Overall the hotel was good value for money and we were only there for two nights so it served it's purpose for our city break.

Room Tip: Not on the front!

Small but nice room. Bathroom equipped with all needed. Unfortunately the hotel had a big group of very noisy tourist. But the worst experience was the breakfast. The bread was at least a couple of days old. It was so hard I was not possible to bite it.
