This was our cheapest stay on our back packing trip of Italy, and to be honest was the most comfortable of the whole trip. We had been staying in hostels with shared facilities in other destinations, so it was quite a luxury for us to have our own massive bathroom on this trip.
The shutters block out all light and noise from outside so we had a very peaceful two nights here, bed firm but still comfortable.
Location is a fair way from the city centre, however it is really easy to get to from the Train Station as all you have to do is cross the road and get the number 2 bus to the terminus Gomito and the hotel is in front of you, so easy and transport is really cheap.
Reception staff were brilliant, and they basically became our PA's while we were in Bologna. They phoned up restaurants and booked us tables, and they also phoned Ducati and a Balsamic vinegar factory in Modena to book us tours. Also really polite and friendly, so cant fault them in any way.
Selection at breakfast was huge and plentiful, something for everyone and set us up for a days sightseeing.
Price of the bar was a little steep compared to the prices in bars in Bologna, but this is the norm with most hotel bars so not a moan just a comment.
