“Best hotel”
Reviewed July 20, 2011

Very good hotel. 15 minutes walk from the train station. Rooms clean and well stocked. Free mini-bar. Buffet breakfast, so you can eat. The only disadvantage may be lack of access to free internet, but you can always pay for it. Hotel recommended.

We booked this hotel on the basis of reviews on this sight and round, it did not disappoint. Getting there by foot from the train station takes about 15 minutes and takes you through some residential streets, but it is all safe and calm. Once you get there, the hotel stands out as having a touch of class about it - stylish lobby, very modern restaurant and bar area. The receptionists were polite, helpful and good English speakers. When in the room, we were pleased - it was minimalist yet stylish and comfortable. However, do not expect much of the views - one side looks on to flats, the other on to the road. This is when we noticed the first downside - but it was not the hotel's fault. There was no air conditioning in the rooms - annoying as it was hot. Apparently, by law, they cannot have these on until 15 May. They did, however, supply us with a fan which was adequate. Other good points with the room were the comfortable bed, free mini-bar which was topped up daily and a nice bath. Breakfast was the only part of this hotel which was not 4 star. You have to ask for a hot drink as it's hit and miss whether a waitress would ask you or not in our experience. The selection of food is quite poor - only eggs and sausage were hot. And our final breakfast there was the biggest let down and left a sour taste in the mouth. We arrived for breakfast at 9.15, 45 minutes before closing. Yet, there was no hot food. There were no sweet pastries and no juice! The waitress saw us waiting for these things but did not arrange for a top up or provide any explanation as to whether there would be any more food. As such, our final experience of this hotel was not a good one and this should be a point that I hope the management take note of. However, this should not take away from the overall standard of this hotel which was good, clean, comfortable and peaceful.

- The breakfast buffet was quite poor.
- We asked from the reception to give us a wake-up call at 04:30 a.m. and they called at 05:00 a.m. I f we have depended on this, it could have caused us to miss our flight.
- Since the hotel has a 'no smoking policy' and the smokers must go outside to smoke I would recommend that there should at least be a place to sit (e.g. a small bench).

I had booked a double room, it was fine overall, fairly basic, with a very comforable bed, built in wardrobe and a desk - the tv was all Italian channels apart from CNN and BBC World News which were the only 2 english speaking channels (that could have been better). The free mini bar consisted of 2 bottles of water and 2 cans of coke - a packet of pringles or bar of chocolate wouldn't have gone amiss! But it did have a lovely bathroom with a big bath and great shower - take your own toiletries though, they give you a tiny shower gel and same size shampoo, no good at all if you have a shower/bath more than once during your stay. They had a full size hair dryer in the bathroom though which was a nice change to the tiny ones you normally get in hotels! Also couldn't get the air con to work at all, no matter what I did it just wouldn't work. The staff were very friendly though and extremely helpful - taxi to the airport costs around 20 euros and it's about a 10-15 min walk to the Bologna exhibition Centre. Would definitely stay there again.

This hotel is 15 minutes walking from the station and 30 from the heart of Bologna. Its archiquecture and decoration is impersonal but practical and clean. Rooms are enough larges. Breakfast is simple.
