We arrived in Bolonga late, missing our arranged shuttle bus from the hotel. With just a quick phonecall to the hotel, the shuttle bus arrived back for us to take us straight to the hotel.
We checked in quickly and recieved all the information we needed for our stay, which included free breakfast, free Gym, free wifi, a bus service from just outside the hotel and free rental of bikes (sit up and beg bikes!). This was handy for us as we used these to travel down the street in the evening to the restaurants to eat.
The room was very clean and had a mini bar in the corner (we used this to store our beer bought from the coop down the road).
The bathroom was very clean too, with a change of towels everyday. We took our own shampoo but after a day or two, we worked out that the soap is supplied on the wall in the shower!!
The room also has air conditioning but only works when the balcony doors are closed..again, took us a while to figure this out,
The beds were very firm as were the pillows, so took a bit of getting used to.
The breakfast in the mornings were excellent. Lots of choice, cereals, bread, pastries, biscuits, fruit, hams and cheese, scrambled eggs, yoghurts, along with teas coffees and fruit juices.
We didnt use the bar, but wouldnt have thought the prices would have been too expensive.
The staff overall were very friendly and helpful, and spoke English when the Italian got a little difficult, The man who drives the minibus/shuttle is always smiling and seems to do everything around the hotel as well as drive the shuttle.
We would definately recommend this place to stay and will stay here again if we come back to Bolonga.
If you are looking for good restaurants in the area, we can recommend co-co's pizzeria about 5minutes on a bike and Snoopy 2's Pizzeria about a minute further towards the centre. Both have excellent food, value and service.
