“Good Location”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

This hotel is in a great location between the Railway station and the main square. Good value for the money but this is not a 4 star hotel. Poor Lift, stain on ceiling, long narrow bedroom overlooking a dark unlit space.
The breakfast was basic nothing special not enough choice and no toasting facility. It was located in a very small and long cellar and covered in mirrors.
There is a taxi rank outside and dont forget to pay your City Tax before you depart.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view as I had a dimly lit room overlooking an enclosed small unlit space.

I am a fan of the Tre Vecchi hotel in Bologns, and a repeat vision. The hotel is perfectly located a short distance from the station, but sits at the heart of historic Bologna with all of the city's many attractions a short walk from the front door.

The rooms are smart, clean and nicely furnished. The large breakfast room downstairs serves a decent buffet-style breakfast in the morning, and the staff are polite & helpful.

Tre Vecchi is a good-standard, refreshingly unpretentious place to stay in Bologna. I'll be back.

The Hotel made us very welcome as a group of 26. The lifts (2) were very small but speedy. Lounge was comfortable and barman/porter could produce tea, coffee or drinks very quickly. Prices reasonable. Breakfast in the wine cellar was adequate with a small hot selection but no toasting facility. Room was comfortable but over heated and difficult to adjust without opening the window. There is now a Euro 2.50 Bologna City tax per room-night added since 1st September 2012. As you leave you are confronted with this extra - luckily our tour manager agreed to pay it !

I stayed at the Tre Vecchi for 5 nights, and was very pleased overall. The hotel is styled traditionally, but finished to a modern standard. Rooms were very comfortable bed (single actually bigger than a normal single but smaller than a real double), and clean. Breakfast was included in the rate and was good. Room was on the back and very quiet, I never heard a thing. Hotel is in a great location for exploring Bologna, and has easy access to taxi stand, train station and bus stops, and the main attractions are a 5-10 minute walk away.

My only issue was with heating and hot water in the room. When I first arrived (this is in late November), the heating was fully on and the room was very hot. The air conditioning unit seemed to have no effect no matter what you did, so I slept with the window open. Obviously AC units vary from room to room so maybe I had a bad one. I turned the radiators off, and kept the window open and this was fine, but in summer this might have been more of an issue. It also took 5 minutes each time to get hot water from the taps or shower, which was a minor inconvenience, and not expected in a 4* hotel. Neither was the wifi which was restricted to 1 hour per day free, and paid on top of that.

Overall it was good with great location and service. Good value booked online too.

Excellent location in the center of the city. You'll have to add 15-20€ for park to the room price. Ideal if you're staying few days and want to be close to everything. The hotel is located close to the train station that could be reached with a 10 minutes walk.

Old Hotel, not a 4 stars, probably 2 stars, old room, small breakfast, the staff is nice but that's it. I paid 120 euros for a night, crazy. The wifii is not included, but don't worry, it wasn't working in my room!!

The hotel decor is a little bit strange in my opinion, it's too "artsy". But the hotel itself is very clean. The room was nice, warm and comfortable. The hotel has a good location in the city centre, near the railway station and shops. Location is really good, close to all sights. Good breakfast. Good staff and service. Definitely recommended!
