“Great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Clean and good sizes room but with the usual tiny shower. Out of the historical centre but close to the bus. Helpful staff that were helpful and friendly. On the downside you could hear everyone walking up the stairs and noises from above. Great value for the price

Stayed October 2013, traveled with family

The hotel was ideal. very close to the old town and train station. The owners have water for guests which was a nice touch. The room was clean and secure. Very quiet neighborhood. Bathroom was a little small especially the shower area, although it was clean.

Tiny hotel but rooms are quite big and basic. We landed quite late at night and when we arrived at the hotel, it looked really dodgy from the outside. However,the owner was really helpful and he even offered a lift to the train station in the morning, which we refused as it was a 10-15 minute walk...
I would recommend it for a couple of nights only.

Clean rooms, well located. It was a 5min walk to the station, 15min walk to the show grounds. No breakfast or extras, just fab value. The rooms have been renovated to a good standard. The hotel is located in a semi run down area hence the bargain price. Would return if in the area again.

We needed rooms for one night near Bologna station .This little hotel is good value for money.The bedroom was spacious and clean and the bathroom seemed quite new.The bed was huge and very comfortable. As breakfast is not provided we found a very good snack bar just over the main road.There was also a good pizza place near called Yari ( I think)
It is about fifteen minutes walk from the station and the hotels are all signposted.
The owner very kindly took us to the station in his own car when we left which was much appreciated.

I have stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks, and unfortunately I cannot recommend this establishment to anyone!! Hotel Ideale is divided in 2 parts- one is for 'better' customers-preferably older German couples, or those who 'look rich'. The other part- old and poor is run by mother of Bruno Misciali. I was offered a room in the other part of hotel (another building in fact). By this occassion Mr. Bruno Misciali warned me- quote-' that they dont want any men coming with me at night!'-I was personally insulted and treated like prostitute. Moreover, the room that was offered to me was equipped in litterally: a) metal-framed bed and b) small table without nothing to sit on. Price: 35 euro.No breakfast -nothing. On the last day of my stay I was asked even to move to another room, which turned to be an old kitchen!!
Mother of Bruno Misciali had a habit of sniffing in rooms when the guests were in the city. I have noticed that several small objects were missing after a day or so (perfumes e.g.) and I started to lock my cosmetics and money in small locker no one could open. This women behaved like mentally ill person, screaming through the phone in the morning or arguing laudly with people. It was so embarasing, I trully regret I picked up this place during my vacations. Dont let them fool you with these pictures- the hotel is in fact a refurbished flat, old and smelly. It looks like museum with heavy dusty interiors, old sinks and no hot water. If you go there you will also notice specific smell of decomposed protein or something like that. The managment reacts cordially ONLY on those who carry their credit cards in their teeth,all right? If you dont look 'rich enough'- forget about decent service. Im sure there are other good hotels in Bologna-but this one sucks!

Driving in from Trieste we were able to find the Hotel Reale with little problem. Nestled in a neighborhood approximately a 15 minute walk from la citta' vecchia, we we put in a second floor apartment in the rear of the building. It was odd in that the kitchen had a refrigerator that was empty, not plugged in and the doors were open. The rooms were clean (if smelling slightly of disinfectant) and the bathroom large and modern. Our hosts were pleasant. There was ample parking on the street that required the purchase of parking tickets from a machine on the corner. For 60 euros the Hotel Ideale is a great value.
