Brilliant hotel. Clean, friendly, very spacious rooms and great service. No complaints at all. Nice quiet part of town, recommend eating at Pizza Jari ten mins away, great little restaurant.

Hi. I stayed in the BW City Hotel in Bologna in June 2012. The hotel is located 2 Km from the historic area of the city, but it´s on a main street with bus access to the city center. The hotel looks recently renovated on the inside, and it´s nice and clean. But´s that´s where the good stops. At the time we went it was about 40oC in Bologna, and the hotel´s A/C system is controlled centrally, even though the room thermostat says you can lower the temperature to 15-16oC, it doesn´t go below 25oC, we were in a triple room, so you could imagine that we spent our whole time sweating. I called the desk downstairs and they changed our room 3 time with no avail. Only after having us drag our luggage all around the hotel (until 1 am) did they say that the rooms were all the same temperature. I asked them for at least a couple of fans, since the temperature was exactly the same in the hall as in the room, but they said they didn´t have any. I had reserved 4 nights, but after spending 2 nights without getting any rest because of the heat, we checked out. Also the breakfast says "full", but the only "hot" food they had was a pot of cold scrambled eggs and some equally cold bacon. If they actually improve they´re A/C system or I imagine if we had visited in a cooler time of year, the hotel would have been OK.

This hotel was pretty descent for a short business trip. Good deal for the price, had a pretty comfortable sleep. I just wished the bathroom was little nicer and bigger.

Great advantage is a convenience to the two major highways if you are passing through by car. The parking was no problem as there is underground parking available. It was pretty easy to find the hotel.

A good hotel situated away from the city centre but an easy walk in .
hotel staff and facilities are very good .continental breakfast sufficient .
The only problem we had was that the bar was closed on the sunday night we were there .Apart from that it was an enjoyable stay .
10 of us were there on a weekend break .
There are a couple of decent restuarants nearby if you do not want to wander to far away

Nice hotel - big room but kind of basic, good breakfasts, quiet (although could hear everything the people in the room next door were saying!), clean and really friendly & helpful front desk staff.

Just a 10-15 minute walk from the city with a supermarket on the way for you to stock up on fruit/drinks if you need it. Off a small side street surrounded by tress so you do feel like you are leaving the city behind when you go back to the hotel.

Not the best hotel I've ever stayed in but no complaints at all.

The reception was friendly and helpful. The garage was good. Good breakfast with lots of goodies. The location is ok. You had to walk some distance to get to the old town. Some parts were not so nice to pass when it began to grow.
