“Great value just outside the centre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights while travelling around Italy and found it great value, clean and modern.
The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was large and clean. Breakfast was included and was adequate.
The hotel has a lovely rooftop terrace with sun loungers and a jacuzzi and there is also an outside area attached to the bar, where you can sit outside and have a drink.
One small downside is that It's a little far away from the city centre and the 20 minute walk is along quiet streets with no restaurants or bars close by. Given its distance from the centre it might be a hotel more suitable for a business person but having said that if we were returning to Bologna we would definitely consider staying here again, given how reasonably priced it is.

This is a nice, clean, fairly new hotel with very helpful and polite staff. It lacks atmosphere and cosiness, but really there is nothing much to pick on. Breakfast is great with a large selection of products and very friendly staff. In the evening the same restaurant is open for a la carte dinner - overpriced with very small portions and slow service.The bar as mentioned in another review is located in the corridor and probably that's why it's usually empty. Our room on the 6th floor had a nice view of the city center. The hotel is located within a 20 minute walk from the city center. There's a supermarket right around the corner.

Room Tip: Ask for 6th floor rooms with rooms of the city center.

Great hotel in a quiet location, about 20 mins to the city center. We did not like Bologna much but it was nice to relax in a good hotel. You have to try the Bologna pizza and ice cream, they are great. The hotel was clean and more than we expected for the money we paid.

Clean, comfortable, attentive helpful staff, good breakfast, all good but the only great thing was the view from the sixth floor room over the rooftops of Bologna. There's definitely nothing to complain about but also nothing to rave about. The hotel bar felt a little cold and impersonal due to its location in a corridor and rather overpowering television which dominated the area. The breakfast offered a wide choice of both cold and cooked delicacies which were always well stocked. The reception desk were particularly helpful in recommending and booking restaurants. Oh yes and one more great, book a taxi from the hotel and time how quickly it arrives without even a phonecall being made - that really was impressive. Would we recommend it? Yes we would but with reservations.

This hotel is clean and comfortable. It's just far enough from the center to be quiet but not too far to walk safely. Good breakfast and courteous staff. A nice hotel. Free coffee at some hours. The hotel is on a nice, quiet street. There are little shops nearby to buy fruit or bread.
