Mercure Bologna Centro
Ranked #52 of 102 Hotels in Bologna
Reviewed December 26, 2012

We spent one night in the hotel recently. The room was quite OK with some small deficiencies, like not very comfortable bed, or small bathtub, or breakfast with little choice. But this does not change the fact that the location of the hotel and the price was superb. This is our second stay at the very same hotel, and I definitely would love to stay there next time I go to Bologna.

Hotel's location is good, close to metro Line B and Bus stop. Surrounded by restaurants and cafe. However it's not actually in the heart of the city. You will need time to travel to tourist attraction by bus or metro. Next time I will stay somewhere close.
I stayed in this hotel in middle of November. It's cold at night but not so much in the day. When we arrived around 3pm, our room is too hot and the sunlight is baking us. Air condition wasn't working. So, I called the receptionist and she said they close it down for winter and I asked what should I do I couldn't breath here, She told me to open the windows. we have three windows in the room and turn out it can open only one and by open it means we can open around six inches. Instead of take some rest as plan I have to go out since it's too hot to bear.

Staff answered all questions you want to know but never more, no suggestions about anything. Only staff that really impressed me is housekeeper who kept our room clean and kept asking if we want anything else.

Room was clean and quite clean compare to others in Europe.

Breakfast I paid for is normal. nothing fancy and it wasn't worth the price. If you want to stay here go out have breakfast at local cafe.

Spent 3 nights at Mercure Bologna Centro. Changed rooms after the first night because the room was so cold. Satisfied with room n:o 2. Rooms towards the street are noisy! Ask for a room facing the garden. Breakfast costs 10€ and is ok with different kinds of coffee, croissants, bread, egg&bacon. Recommended. It's a 15 mins walk to Piazza Maggiore. It's hard to find a nice restaurant so far from the city centre but there are several fast food places since the hotel is just across from the Bologna train station.

If the hotel management reads this I would like to tell them that the bathrooms need freshening up ( I saw three different bathrooms there and they were all very dated). Also the carpet is old and dirty. Beds are ok. The female receptionists were helpful above average, the male ones didn't care about their customers at all.

The hotel is located across the road from the Train station, easy to walk to the local attractions and in a good choice of restaurants and pizza shops in the area. Room decor quite old, wifi Internet also quite slow, diff emit parts of the room give you different wifi readings- if you can find a spot with 2 bars or above you need to stay still.
