Suite Hotel Elite

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 7, 2012

Suite Hotel Elite is on the main road to Bologna city centre approx. 2 km for the very heart of the city. The bus stop is close to the hotel and has frewuent service to the centre and railway station.

The rooms vary in size (and price). We stayed in room 216, together with room part of one apartment. You enter both rooms from the apartment corridor. Both rooms with a lock (electronic system). The door the hotel corridor was always open, but can be closed and locked when the rooms are used as an apartment.

Airport can be reached by public transport. Coming from the airport a change is required, going to the airport the stop is approx. 350 m away (regular bus can be used to cover the 2 stop's distance)
Furniture, beds icluding matresses are of good quality and maintenance status.
Nice bath room with shower. Plenty of towels (clean ones every day, even if you put the used one back on the rail). Room is quiet (back side of hotel).

Hotel offes free internet in a public area with vending machines. You can iether use one of the 2 hotel computers or your own laptop (Wi-Fi).
The signal could also be picked up in room 216, but was weak there.

Breakfast is very good with real Italian coffee (espresso machine). It is a pity that fruit juice was served in plastic beakers. Not something that you expect in a 4-star hotel.

Room Tip: Room at the back side are more quiet. Front rooms (although with double glazing) are very close to a...

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. We booked a suite for an extremely good price (so i can only comment about the suite) and the room was fantastic. The hotel was just 20 mins walk away from Piazza Maggiore and several buses are available in short walking distance.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Bologna.

The hotel is very promising from the reception but gets really sad inside (it's ten years older!) and the rooms are mini apartaments with a kitchen inside. Clean and pretty quiet. The breakfast room is much worse in real life as it's cramped and the quality and choice pretti scarce. The hotel is used a lot by people who are being cured for illnesses at the hospital on the other side of the road, and unfortunately it is not exactly a cheerful atmosphere to say the least.

I stayed two nights at the Suite Hotel Elite. The quality of the room was amazing, we were upgraded from the standard room we payed for, and the room we got was HUGE! King size bed, 26' flat screen, huge leather sofa, kitchen and bathroom. It was very comfortable and stylish, just he bathroom wasn't recently renovated, but it was also good.
The breakfast was included in the price and it was very good, the breakfast hours were long (which i like when i'm on holidays) and the variety was big and with good quality.
The location is very good, only 20 minutes walk to the city centre, but you are already in the city so it's a nice walk.

It is the old wing of the hotel's complex. Though is a well maintained building with spacy and clean rooms. It is a 30' walk from the center of Bologna. A bus stop is opposite the hotel. A free "on the road" parking is available.
The big MINUS of this hotel is the breakfast.

Room Tip: If it is possible, try to book a room at the new wing of the hotel.

We stayed in Bologna for 2 nights and wanted a clean, modern hotel with no frills at an affordable rate. Suite Hotel Elite offers just that.

Location: easily accessible via car with free (albeit tight) parking. a good 20-minute walk to the historic town centre but with bus stop right across the street. the walk is an easy one under the arcades of bologna, but not the most scenic one.

Room: very spacious and clean rooms with A/C with separate kitchen facility. We didn't notice the street noise that other reviewers have been commenting on. Wi-fi was a little bit slow but bearable as we only used it to check our emails once a day.

Staff: polite and helpful. not more not less.

Breakfast: breakfast was included in our room rate (booked through booking.com) and was among the better ones in Italy with several choices of pastries, ham, cheeses, eggs, yogurts, juices and a barista that prepared espressos, lattes, cappuccinos to your liking.

Overall, very good value for money.

An excellent value hotel with very helpful and friendly staff. The rooms were very comfortable and very clean. Good free internet and wifi access. The breakfast was quite good although it was a bit heavy on the cakes and biscuits, but still a good selection with something for everyone.

Only slight drawback was its location, a good 20-30 minutes walk from the city centre, however there are plenty of buses passing by the hotel to city centre and airport. We are both keen city walkers, but after 4 days the walk back was just a bit too far at te end of a day/evening out.

All in all a good quality hotel and as already said excellent value. To be reommended.

Room Tip: We had a room on the main road but the triple glazing was so good we never heard a thing!
