Flyon Hotel
Ranked #71 of 102 Hotels in Bologna
Reviewed November 27, 2013

I stayed for 2 nights at the hotel which is located back of the Bologna Airport but little far from the town and hotel provided shuttle bus service (the driver was very friendly)
First of all, once we arrived the hotel look abandon and very dirty place, the garden area is bad noone take care for years all rubbish around.

Checked in there is no one welcome at the door and I walked inside to the reception. The receptionest girl was horible no servicemind at all, we asked place to go or restaurant nearby hotel. She doesn't recommend any restaurant which actuually there was one very good restaurant nearby hotel.

Room is small but that was ok as I booked for standard room, no internet in room but provided at reception area. Once entered to the room you can forgot for Sheraton's name and though staying in local budget motel.

Restaurant in hotel was closed at 2pm I arrived and will open again at 7pm, during that you can order room sevice which charge extra 10Euros per person from the menu.
Forgot about minibar in the room, there was empty fridge really.. nothing in there, just 2 bottles of drinking water.

Well...Im sorry but i won't return to this Sheraton hotel again.

I do not normally give a 1 rating but the frustration was so high. Being a business traveler it is critical to have internet access. I talked to the front desk multiple times but unless you want to sit in the lobby you were out of luck.

Other than that critical item the rest was fine, I like the food and service in the restaurant.

Room Tip: Do not get a room on the 4th floor, could hear people from the bar in your room until late night.

No Internet, no services, three people on staff, beat up facilities...better than a Motel 6 for airport overnight.

I stay in SPG hotels monthly. This is the worst one ever that I have ever stayed in anywhere in the world.

Simple suggestion: fire everyone. Gut the pig. Start over. Do better. This is a mess.

If you want to wallow in guano, this is the hotel for you.

If you need to fly out early from Bologna this is your hotel. Shuttle service to & from the airport plus limited shuttle service into the center of the city. Perfect property with super great rates if you are willing to pre-pay your room. Have stayed here several times when the only connections leaving early were out of Bologna. The airport is also recently remodeled and runs very efficiently. Have also eaten at the hotel; food was very good. Will use this hotel again

As other reviewers have said, this is a property ripe for redevelopment.

It is very close to the airport (pick the shuttle bus up just outside arrivals) and this is a good factor. The bathroom was clean, but just had that feel of an old place in need of a deep clean (tired flooring, mould stains on the ceiling)

Shower pressure was ok, but nothing amazing.

Staff were very helpful for a couple of requests and spoke and understood English well (phew!)

Note that the shuttle bus is likely to be full if you are on the first flight out. Taxi to the airport at 04:45 was €15.

As the only real option near the airport for an early flight, I stayed there for one night. The best of all is their staff: professional, friendly and willing to help you; 10/10 for them. But the facilities are in desperate need of some investment: dirty old carpets in the halls, walls in need of some painting, dirty and old bathtubs. The breakfast was good, slightly above the average for this type of hotels. One more thing: if you want internet in your room it will cost you $19 Eur!!! The free wifi in the lobby works very well. My guess is that they are too complacent with themselves as there are not many options for someone who needs to be sleep close to the airport and the hotel seems to have high occupancy even with its problems.

I booked a stay here for one night given my late arrival (after midnight) at Bologna airport. Unfortunately, the last hotel shuttle picks up at the airport around 11:30pm. Fortunately, it's a relatively quick taxi ride to the hotel, but cost me 11 euro.

There's nothing wrong with the hotel per se, it simply feels like it could use a bit of a refresh. The carpet in my room was frayed in multiple places. The fitness room did not have any towels or water available. The computers downstairs had such an old version of Internet Explorer installed that Gmail refused to load. And so on.

If you're looking for a convenient hotel by the airport, the Sheraton will certainly suffice. Just expect average.
