“to go again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

I had the opportunity to stay at this hotel for the New Year's Celebrations (for 5 nights). The main thing that is (let me say it as) negative is that it's about 20 minutes away from the centre of Bologna by car but thankfully for those who does not rent a car, the hotel have a free shuttle service to the centre which is something very good if you want to go for shopping. Near the hotel also, there's some factory outlets shops which you can go by walk if you want to go for some more shopping.
For the price that we paid 114Euros for a 5 night, it was very good and it was during the festive seasons. The breakfast was litteraly abundant and have a wide variety from cerial to fruit, to cakes and crossants, eggs, bacon mushrooms sausages... you can have a whole day filled if you fuel yourself. Even the rooms they are nice and clean and you have free wifi and a kettle with free coffee and tea in the room. The only thing that i was dissappointig was the fact that in the room there was no long mirror. only the one in the bathroom and on the desk but all the hotel is very clean and modern.The last day, we had to travel back at night and they also offered us to take care of our bagages during the whole day so we spent the last day around the centre of bologna and then before heading to the airport we went to the hotel to pick up our baggages. To be recomanded

Dear Guest,
I remember your little group coming from Malta. Thank you very much for the very positive feedback posted on tripadvisor.
I agree with you about the fact that a long mirror would be a great improvement , but unfortunately we are not planning at the moment to place it in our rooms. It is in the list of things we would like to do, but we have some major improvements planned for this year.
I am really glad to read that your stay was good and that you enjoyed to spend your days in Bologna at the Cosmopolitan.
Many wishes from me and the entire staff for a wonderfull 2013

Very nice rooms.
Breakfast was abundant.
Free parking and wifi.
Shopping mall nearby which was is a plus on a cold and rainy winter day.
Not centric but the bus stop is not far and it takes 20 mins to take to the center of Bologna.

Dear Guest,
I would like to thank you for the good review posted on tripadivor.com. It is really important for us to know our guests opinione and impressions. It is also positive that other members of the tripadvisor community will be able to have an additional review to count on to make their choice.
I would like to inform that it is also available a free shuttle bus to go down town (I do hope that my colleagues have mentioned it to you when you were here). It takes only 15 minutes to reach the heart of the city
Best wishes from all of us for a wonderfull 2013

We found a hotel which is great for the rate it charges. Friendly staff, nice and clean room and bathroom and exquisite breakfast. Although the hotel is situated outside the city centeŕ, they offer a free shuttle several times a day. So, it´s to be recommended.

Clean, good facilities at rooms, near the autostrada.

I would choose it again with no doubt.
Only one restaurant a la cart . Not very good service , the wine for example was not cold enough.

Free wi if, good access to a pc with a printer, that's give their will to help the business people who visit it.

Good prices at the bar.
One disadvantage is not close to the old city if you want to visit the old town for shopping.

Stayed November 2012, traveled on business

Dear Guest,
I would like to thank you for spending some of your time to write your experience about the Cosmopolitan.
I am sorry to read that the restaurant was not so good as you probably expected. I will double check with the restaurant staff if there is any service behaviour to improove. I will also make sure that the wine we serve in the future will be always as cold as it should be.
About the distance from the old city, we are only 5 km away from it (15 minutes drive) . We also provide a free shuttle service to bring our guests who wants to visit the historical part of Bologna directly to downtown.
Best wishes from all of us for a wonderfull 2013 to you and to your family

Very nice hotel, big room with huge bathroom! Very reach breakfast, will definetly recommend it to a friend! Have free internet. More suitable for business people, but it's a good hotel to stop for 1-2 days in Bologna if you have a car.

This hotel is on the outskirts of Bologna and is similar to a nicer hotel you would find at a highway exit in the United States. The room was very large, they had an onsite restaurant and bar, and seemed to have a lot of business travelers. Our biggest complaint was that our room was very warm. We complained twice and both times were told that the air conditioning had been turned off two days earlier and that we should open our window. While that did cool down the room, it was also very noisy and, as there is no screen, we were concerned about bugs flying in. Also, when we left it open during the day, the cleaning staff closed it. When we mentioned it again upon checkout, the desk clerk said that we should have been offered a different room because something must not have been working. If the ac is off, not sure how something broken would have cooled the room but they did knock 10 euro (5 euro per night) off the price.
The included breakfast is pretty basic but if you ask they will make cappucino for you; do not use the cappucino machine in the buffet area - it did not make good coffee. The wifi did not work at all one morning, even after they reset it. The shuttle, as others have noted, is very infrequent - 3-4 hours apart. A cab from central Bologna costs about 14 euro but if I intend to spend much time in Bologna, next time I would stay inside town. They offered small snacks in the late afternoon during happy hour and the bar and lobby are nice.

Dear Guest,
first of all I would like to thank for having spent some of your time to write a review about your stay at the Cosmopolitan.
Unfortunately the weather conditions during this period are changing every day (one day pretty cold, the next day warm etc etc). Our systems work during the summer time with cold air conditioning and during the winter time with hot air conditioning. During your stay the system was set on the hot air conditioning as in november is more often the cold time that the hot one. Therefore the only thing possible is to swicth it off during a hot day. I know it souds strange for you. I used to live in the U.S. and I know that in your country systems work the entire year with hot and cold air, mixing them on guests different need.
I apologize for this and I understand if you don't feel complitely satisfied with your stay
Best Regards
