“Value for Money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

Booked online for one day stay. Low season so was almost empty. The hotel is quite near to the Central Station. The share bathroom was clean and well maintained. The staff at the desk was very helpful. The breakfast was basic but pretty good. Will highly recommend for short stays.

It was quite clean, worth the money.
I stayed only a night, it was good for that purpose. However would not choose for longer time.
Nothing special.Kind staff.
The huge corridors were indeed scary at night (the hotel was not that busy, when I stayed)...

Great location, rooms are clean and basic but quite big. However the shared bathrooms- some are dark (lacks lighting where the shower is) and the ones that are bright are dirty- smelly, clogged. The big spacious corridors to go to bathroom at night is pretty scary- it's dark (until lights turned on as u exit ur room) and its really quite. Breakfast- only croissants available with different fillings, and limited to 2 per person because they said they have more guests coming.

I stayed in this 1-star hotel at the beginning of Aug. 2013 in a single room for one night. Ideally located (10 min walk from Central Station), quiet, beautiful surroundings. Staff exceptionally friendly and helpful - even though one of them spoke no English, we could get very well along about pretty much everything. Clean, quiet room with a nice bed & bedsheet, sink, WIFI, breakfast buffet included with a delicious coffee of your choice, creatively decorated lounge. And all of this for only 18 euros!

The best thing about this hotel is it's price :) Perfect for people who want to get a cheap sleep in Bologna.

Not a bad locaton. You can take a taxi or walk from the main Bologna Centrale station (it takes around 7-10 minutes).

There is a park with some entertaiment (shows, small concerts ect) and street clothes market located near to this hotel.
Breakfast was served downstairs. It's was tipical Italian breakfast.
Rooms are OK, but you can not expect anything better for that price.
I recomend it to people who are not looking for a luxury, but just a clean, cheap place to sleep in Bologna.

Hotel itself is located on a side street in a fairly quiet area which is good for sleep quality. The hotel is about 5-10 min walk from the main train station.

Hotel feels like a dorm because it is enormous, and has fluorescent lighting and big corridors.

We stayed three nights in a private room with a shared bathroom. The room had a sink, and also they provided towels.

Room was clean and bright, with two windows. Shared bathrooms were spacious and clean. There were three bathrooms on our side of the first floor, and it was quiet so we never had to wait to use them.

WiFi was available for free in worked in rooms. There were vending machines and a microwave available for use.

Laundry available with washing machine (50c a load) and dryer (50c for 30min), however dryer did not work well, so we needed to hang our clothes up in our room to dry.

Two supermarkets are 5min away.

Staff were polite and some spoke English.

Breakfast (7-9am) was included in the price however offered only Cornflakes, prepackaged croissants with jam and a coffee or juice.

Overall, not a bad budget option.
