Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We only stayed one night but were very pleased with the location, service and degree of comfort. Staff were helpful and provided good information. Hotel is easy to find, close to the railway station and only a short walk to the historic centre and main shops.

As tourists at this hotel, we were at a disadvantage. WiFi was costly & directions to transportation & restaurants was incomplete.
The hotel & the rooms are clean & well decorated.
The breakfast & bar were very accommodating.

Room Tip: Fourth floor was noisy due to nearby construction.

I spent a week in Bologna during a very hot August and the Internazionale turned out to be a terrific choice. Large air-conditioned bedroom with very little traffic noise even though it overlooked a busy road junction. The location is great. A short (5 minute) walk takes you to the railway station (one and a half hours by train to Venice, 35 mins to Florence, etc) or the city centre. Plenty of places to eat nearby, including a self-service restaurant (opposite the Arena del Sole) which is basic but very convenient. The breakfast buffet in the hotel is superb. I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Bologna.

Our group of ten stayed in the Internazionale for 4 nights. The rooms are very large and comfortable, refurbished in the traditional style with large marble bathrooms. The staff were exceptionally helpful and made our visit a great success. There is a pleasant terrace with tables and parasols where we enjoyed drinks before going out to dinner and on two occasions the barman opened the bar specially for us on our return. Breakfast is good continental with lots of pastries. If you are looking for a convenient base to enjoy walking in this beautiful historic city, this would be an excellent choice.

We spend 2 days in Bologna in our summer holiday in Italia.

We have stay in Hotel Internzaionale in Bologna and I recommend this hotel.

The hotel is very well located on Via Independenza which is very colse to historic centere and main atraction of Bologna.

The rooms have a very nice desingn was and very confortable, having an excelent bed and plenty on utilities

The breakfast was very rich and the staff was very porfessional.

Only one MINUS: The underground parking of the hotel was expensive - between 15 to 21 euro/day/car - depending of the size of the car.

Nice trip.

We spent a night at the Internazionale Hotel, choosing it primarily on its location (reasonably near the train station yet within walking distance from the ciy centre). The hotel was absolutely fine - friendly service, comfortable (but a bit old-fashioned) bedroom & decent breakfast.

We have just returned from a 9 night stay at this hotel. The hotel is well located, very clean and the breakfast is good. The reception staff are helpful, but not intrusive. There are very few amenities at this hotel. There is only a very small secluded garden at the back of the hotel if you wish to sit outside and there is a bar available, though we never used it and it always seemed to be closed when we passed it. In many 4* hotels we have stayed in, there have been books available that have been left by previous visitors. This is not the case at the Internazionale. There are no fitness/swimming pool available at this hotel, although you can get a free pass from reception to get you into its sister hotel the Royal Carlton, which is situated about a 5 min walk away from town. When we were there, the outside swimming pool was being repaired, so was not available. So the only available facitilty at the Royal Carlton, was the gym suite - which according to our daughter was very good and not used very much.

We got the hotel via Trivago, so we got it for a very competitive price for a triple room .breakfast. The breakfast is good with a variety of fresh fruit, fresh coffee, fresh orange juice, cold meat/cheeses and bacon and scrambled eggs or hard boiled eggs. We found that it was odd that a 4* hotel did not have normal hotel information available - ie breakfast timings (which whilst we stayed there was 7-11 am), emergency information and general information about Bologna. There is no free wifi at the hotel. However our daughter managed to find out that at the Sala Borsa you can use the free wifi for up to 3 hours a day free of charge. There you can also find the wifi hotspots around town - so you can avoid the 5 Euro per hour charge at the hotel.

Places we would recommend worth a visit apart from the usual sites of Bologna, is the church on the Piazza Santo Stefano and the History of Bologna museum which is free to enter and is absolutely fascinating. Another truely lovely place to visit is the Sanctuary of Corpus Domini also known as "Church of the Saint". After you enter the church, half-way down the church on your left hand side there is a door which leads into a inner room which houses the near perfect remains of St Catherine (you may need to ring a bell to enter). There are specific visiting times so you need to check with the Tourist Information Office. The Friday and Saturday market that takes place on the Piazza opposite the hotel is really good.

On eating in Bologna, you need to be weary of the fact that your bill will include an automatic service charge, but in some restaurants they also automatically slap on a service charge. In our case, we got caught once and the two amounted to nearly 15 Euros on top of our food bill which was about 40 Euros. Needless-to-say we did not return to this restaurant which is a pizza restaurant called Victoria situated on Via Righi Augusto. Restaurants we went to which were really good are called Re Enzo and La Mela. Re Enzo is situated on the Via Riva di Reno, which is a 5 min walk away from the hotel and the proprietor is extremely friendly and attentive. Another one is La Mela which is situated off the Piazza Maggiori on the Via de Fusari 5. Tambourini of course is also a favourite for lunch with half portions of pasta for 4.50 Euro and a quarter litre of wine for 2.20 Euros.

One interesting observation is that the people of Bologna actually walk into you on the street, rather than avoid you. We found this unbelieveable at first but you get use to avoidance of body crashes after a while!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 108 which was set up as a triple room, though normally is a twin room. This is ov...
