“Convenient hotel and friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

This hotel is directly opposite the central station, and within walking distance to the centre of town. The station being close is convenient as Bologna is small, and can be done in a day. Therefore, it is worthwhile catching the train to some of the other beautiful towns in Emilia Romagna and on to Tuscany (the Frecciargento only takes 40mins to Florence but it costly at around £50 return).
The hotel has a lovely quiet garden and the breakfast is great. It is pretty tired and dated but the lovely, smiley and helpful staff are what made it a great stay for me.

Stayed at the Mecure two nights. The location is good right across from the train station and a few minutes walk to the city centre. The room was spacious and clean. The only issue was the whole balcony was covered in pigeon faeces so we couldn't go out there, I guess they can't really help that though. The staff were friendly & helpful

I have booked a double bed room to make sure that I have a comfortable stay at Mercure as single hotel rooms in Italy, tend to be quite small. The room was clean and quiet. No smelling whasoever. The hotel personnel is helpful. The Hotel location is quite good, just accross the Bologna Central Station and close to the old city. The hotel garden and bar is also pleasant.
The hotel management is clearly trying to maintain an acceptable level of maintenance and service, There are short comings such as well-used mattresses and lack of slippers so on. However, the short comings are reflected in the price. The breakfast is acceptable, actually better than many 4 star hotels in Italy. Over all, it represents a good value.

Decent hotel, great location, nice staff, the rooms just need a refurbishment ( they look a bit outdated) which would make it a perfect hotel. Would still recomment to anyone, but especially travellers coming to bologna by train.

Pay attention please when you book a room on Booking.com to read that the breakfast is including in the price. We have had a problem in Mercure hotel Bologna because it wasn't clear enough and the receptionists at the front desk did not accept to give you any justifiable explication.
