Flyon Hotel

Reviewed November 5, 2012

Very comfortable hotel with everything you need to make your stay productive. Large rooms with king size beds, flat screen TV and nice marble bathroom. Hotel was clean and well staffed. Several lounge areas for meeting business associates and a nice patio when the weather cooperates. Breakfast is overpriced as is typical in european hotels, so go into town if you can. The plus is that this hotel is 2 minutes from the airport, the minus is that this hotel is 2 minutes from the airport and 20 from downtown.

I recently stayed at this hotel, which is tucked away behind the airport in a convenient place. The room was very comfortable and clean. Great customer service was provided by Anna at Front office, while a gentleman who served me dinner on Saturday night (27th) at the restaurant, whose name I do not know, was very professional. The hotel may need a little loving and attention in terms of its decòr, however the stay was rather pleasant.

Hotel is very old and is not at the quality level of starwood group. The number of staff at front desk is not enough and we had to wait a lot for all process at reception. For example we have waited around 15 minutes for check in. Hotel is far away from city center and the number of shutlle to city center is very limited. There are only 3 shutlle from hotel to city center at 08.00 am, 3 .00pm and 08.00 pm. There should be some more service during the day. WiFi doesn't work at first and second floor.

Room Tip: Superior rooms are better and at the level of standart rooms comparing the other sheraton hotels. Tr...

Booked this hotel at 345 euros for one night -- non refundable...the only available fare. Yet, they charged me 10 euros extra for wifi, an outrage.

Although the hotel advertises shuttle to the Bologna airport around the clock, the first shuttle departs at 5 am. Give the generally lax attitude towards schedules in Italy, and the fact that the Bologna airport is not optimal at all for passenger throughput (understatement intended), that makes the shuttle useless for the 6 am -ish flights, such as the one I was on. As a result, I had to get a cab, it cost me 12 euros for the 2-3 kms ride.

Similarly, there is a single restaurant in the hotel. Grotesquely over priced, don't attempt that experience, it's bad for your wallet and way below mediocre for your palate.


All in all, a hotel to be avoided. Hotels in central Bologna are plentiful, it's a great city with great restaurants, and a cab to the airport will cost you 15-17 euros only.

this hotel is ideal if you have an early flight departing from Blogna airport or a late flight landing.
There is a free shuttle bus that covers the distance (5 minutes) every 30 minutes or less. No need to reserve the shuttle: it will be at the bus parking when you arrive at the airport or in front of the hotel main entrance, if you are going from the hotel to the airport.

Rooms are good and well equipped: the big flat screen TV has italian channels + SKY sport and SKY cinema. Mattresses are good and there are different kind of pillows. The bathroom is not exactly the best in class, but it is OK. I would rather prefer shower than basin and a better hairdryer: the one furnished is really worthless!
Breakfast begins very early (4.30 am), but if you arrive late, there is a chance you will not find a great selection of hot dishes (eggs and bacon).
The staff is not the best part of this hotel: most of the employees come from abroad and not represent the typical warm italian attitude.

Room where well up to Sheraton type standards. It was clean and comfortable with a small private balcony. No complaints.
The breakfast in the other hand was awful, nobody spoke to me, the food consisted of partly cooked food completely in edible or a selection of 3 types of tinned fruit, or brioche all washed down by coffee from a vending machine.

A stone's throw from the airport, the Sheraton is ideal for a previous night's stay before an early morning flight. The hotel is fairly new, modern in style, with a spacious lobby and an adequate business center. Its best feature, however, are the free shuttles to and from the airport about every forty minutes, and, to and from the center of the city three times each day. Having arrived there around noon, with a free afternoon, I ventured, via the shuttle, into the city center for some local culture. Even though the return shuttle wasn't due until much later in the day, I got myself to the airport via the Aerobus, and picked up another Sheraton shuttle back to the hotel. The food in the hotel restaurant is pretty good, but nothing special. No wines by the glass, only small bottles.

Dear Guest,
thank you for your comments they are much appreciated.
Regarding the wine, we do also offer by the glass.
I've noticed that it isn't clearly written on the menù and thanks to your comments we have made it more visible.
