I liked very much Hotel Imperial in Bologna. The stay was great, the staff were really helpful with all our queries. There is a very good shuttle service, in case one leaves early.
The breakfast is great, too. I recommend the hotel, it is very clean and not too far from center.

By far this was the nicest place I have stayed at in Italy. It was clean, the maids were lovely, the receptionist and barman too! They had table tennis outside and a small but cosy beer garden. The bus to Bologna literally collected you at the hotel gates. The breakfast was included and continental, with some lovely croissants. I'd definitely recommend this hotel - especially for how cheap it was. Great value for your money. It also had a gym (which I didn't use!)

Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice, clean and comfortable rooms. Good breakfast. Bus stop in front, and a 15 min ride get you in city center( bus timetable is up to 00,00, so it is good for a late night in the city). We enjoyed our stay.

The best breakfast of any place I have stayed the past two months traveling. Wifi worked all throughout the hotel! The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet at night. The bus stop is directly outside the hotel and seems to come 5x an hour, you can be in the city center in 10-15 minutes!

We've had quite a good experience with Hotel Imperial. Rooms are clean and all staff are really friendly and helpful! It's not exactly in the city center but still within reach by bus. The journey will take approximately 15 minutes from stazione centrale.
We enjoyed our stay. Thanks!

Located out of city centre. Connected to city centre via Bus 25. Bus stop 30 seconds walk from hotel. Wait for bus about 15 minutes. Bus ride about 15 minutes. Bus would stop 30 seconds walk from stazione centrale (central station). I am not sure of the bus timings, but we got back around 2200h one night. Clean room. Nice and friendly concierge who speak good English generally. Carpark lot provided free-of-charge with security cameras. Free wifi available. Wifi may not be strong in room (but still can work). Wifi very strong in lobby. Free buffet breakfast provided. Relatively good spread.
