“Handy but tired hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Having booked here to stay for one night to attend a concert at the Unipol, Bologna, I have to say, most of the male reception staff were friendly and very helpful.

The hotel however was fine for one night, but the rooms are VERY tired inside and the outside, does not feel welcoming at all.

The downstairs bar with DJ played some good 70-80's music with a DJ that was probably of equivalent years!!

The other noticeable thing was the quantity of prostitutes on the road outside by the Centro Commerciale and petrol station further along.

All in all, a good handy hotel for concerts at Unipol and for airport access, but I wouldn't recommend this hotel for holiday purposes.

I stayed at this hotel on February 27th of this year, with my son, on the way back from a music tour I did of Germany and Italy. It was one of the only places during the entire tour that automatically had 2 pillows for each person on the bed...a big thing for me...and the bed was not too hard which often was the case in the 11 other hotels in Italy that we stayed in. The restaurant would have been reason enough to stay here, with its elegant continental feel and excellent food...but the staff also made it enjoyable. The rooms were comfy, not huge like American hotels which most of us are used to, but ample and very clean. There was a nice sized flat screen TV. Shuttle service to the airport was a snap. I would definitely recommend this place as an affordable, enjoyable place to stay for those who want the convenience of being close to the airport, and like having a great restaurant downstairs.

We chose this hotel as it was quite close to the unipol arena, but also the price of a triple room was really cheap. We paid €82 for one night(2 adults and our 13 year old daughter ) including an excellent breakfast!
The rooms were clean and the staff were really nice. The only negative comment i have is about the recepionist... When we arrived, we had 3 familes ahead of us with very excited teenagers all waiting to see their idol , and the young lady at the reception couldn't ever crack a smile!she seemed bored and feed up

I have stayed there twice when flying out of Bologna, and while I recognize that it is an inexpensive hotel, the walls are so thin that you can hear the water running in the next room, not to mention the partying that was going on both times I stayed. This time I had to change rooms due to the excessive noise, and they neglected to transfer the wake up call over, so it was lucky I didn't get any sleep, otherwise I would have missed my flight. The outside elevator was also broken and the receptionist watched us manhandle our bags into the elevator without saying anything, and then we found ourselves stuck on the outside of the building in a malfunctioning elevator which was somewhat disturbing. Definitely will not stay there again.

The hotel guaranteed a parking space if you booked via the hotel's web-site. We arrived at 10.00pm to be told that the underground car-park was out of commission and that all the other parking spaces were taken. We could, however, park immediately in front of the hotel as long as we left our keys with reception - this we did. The receptionist was perfectly pleasant but the hotel appeared in need of a makeover - it looked a bit dowdy. After a long drive, I fancied a drink and went down to the bar but could not find anyone to serve me. Our room was ok, as was the bathroom. The breakfast was plentiful and good value at €5 per head pre-booked with the room.

We stayed there on 13th Dec as a traveling group of 39 people. Check in was smooth. Rooms are tidy and quality of sleep is ok.

However to our surprise, during breakfast, we were told that for group breakfast, we had to eat at a lower floor than the normal restaurant! There were practically nothing to eat unlike the breakfast selection at the coffee house! Then we were told to pay extra to 'upgrade' our breakfast plan. Totally shocking!

I checked in early (11am) as I had time before my first meeting after arriving in Bologna. No problems, free on site parking, room was clean and functional, powerful shower. I didn't see any restaurants within walking distance so I ate in the restaurant which was ok, no great shakes. Breakfast was good plenty of choice and good strong coffee. Overall not a memorable experience but functional, and for the price I paid, I'd say it was decent value.

Room Tip: Get a room at the back as the road is quite busy
