The Atlantic is a modest hotel in a wonderful location--quiet, a short walk to the train station, and very handy to the Piazza Maggiore. The staff is outstanding: the reception desk seems to be manned at all times, and the information and service offered is courteous, prompt, and very competent. There is an elevator; breakfast is served in a small room with a quiet television, and it includes the now-apparently-usual array of pastries with meat, cheese, and yogurt, as well as juice and excellent coffee. The hotel is very clean and efficiently thought out. Both rooms I stayed in were comfortable, spare, generously stocked with hangers, shampoo, soap, and towels--an abundance of towels. The layout of both rooms was a bit strange, and neither one got much in the way of light, but this is a minor complaint--and I must add that when I originally asked for a room that got daylight, the hotel was very forthcoming about this absence of light. On my return in mid-July, I found I had been booked into a room that required me to take stairs after the elevator. When I expressed my quiet surprise, I was immediately transferred to another room--my luggage also being carried for me by the young man at the desk. I cannot count the times in my travels that I have requested a wake-up call in an upscale hotel and had the desk forget; at the Atlantic, the wake-up call was prompt and cheerfully delivered, as was the call for a taxi to the airport. Some kind of wifi snafu on my second visit was quickly addressed by the management, and in the meantime, they allowed me to use their computer near the reception desk. The hotel is very reasonably priced. On a return trip to Bologna, I would not look elsewhere but would immediately try to book here.
