Stayed here for one night on a work trip and for the short stay is was adequate, but I would have been disappointed if it was a holiday . The location is brilliant, 10 minutes walking from the centre of town which is pretty in parts, and extremely run down in others - fascinating to walk through the city. Check in was swift, impersonal and gave me the feeling we were about to stay in student digs. The hotel is really modern, clean lines and a little sterile - lacking in any real personality. My room echoed the atmosphere of reception, it was on the second floor and really had no redeeming features - my window looked out onto the walkway beyond and was a little disconcerting. The room was clean, bed was comfortable enough and the bathroom was unexciting and a little shabby around the edges. Perhaps rooms higher up were a little more comfortable. Breakfast was underwhelming, cereal and toast, not much hot food on offer. The staff congregated around the bar but were helpful when approached. I was thankful to be out in the city for most of the day and evening. Fortunately, Bologna has lots to offers and is definitely worth a visit, I would return, but not to this hotel. The price versus the offering didn't stack up for me.
