Hotels in Italy are almost more a miss than a hit, and the Hotel Internazionale floats a bit in between. We booked for two nights for a short break in Bologna for a rather good fare, knowing hotels in Italy are always on the expensive side.
When checking in at the reception, we were met with nearly complete indifference, but at least the whole check-in was done in little minutes. We had room 101, which could be summarised as follows/
Huge room; with high ceilings, but a miniscule bathroom
Huge new LCD TV, but with only Italian channels
Huge King bed, made up of two smaller bed
Hotel and room are rather old, and rooms may need a repainting or refurbishing, but we had a good night sleep, bed is comfortable and hotel is very well insulated against street noice (our room faced the street).
Redeeming factor of the hotel is the breakfast: for being Italy, very large choice of just about everything and very kind staff.
One tip for travellers: do not take a taxi to the hotel, and especially not arranged by the hotel (prices you pay do not correspond with what the hotel arranged for you), just take the Aerobus from the airport which either drops you at the railway station (2 minutes walk to hotel) or on top of the avenue (5 minutes walk), for EUR 5 each.
We would only recommend this hotel if you have a great rate, anything more than EUR 100 a night would be a rip-off.
