“Simply great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

This hotel is superb. Because of its location I'd say it's rather business oriented but we've been there as regular tourists and it did more than well. Extremly nice staff, great breakfast (especially for Italian standards), fast wi-fi, spotless clean rooms (hotel is quite new and it looks like one). And most fun for us - free bikes to guests disposal. We've been biking around Bologna for half day and I can recommend this way of sightseeing to everyone. Great place!

Nice hotel with beautiful rooms, great staff and good breakfast for such value. Welcome drink was a pleasant surprise. Also we arrived at 12 PM and were able to check in earlier at no extra charge.
Be aware that it is not in city center. We decided to walk there and it was a bit too far. Nevertheless when you travel by car it is easy to access and lots of parking choices. I would definitely recommend it for those who travel in Italy by car and plan to spend 1 day in Bologna.

We really love this hotel and once again we enjoyed our stay. This time it was in summer when outside temperature was around 40 celsius degrees. The midnight bar worked just fine and we tastes some fine cocktails. Thanks for stuff and see you next time.

Sav Hotel
The Sav Hotel seems to have been built to serve the nearby exhibition facility but since events are not continuous there appear to be bargains to be had outside of these times. Its in a residential/business area on the edge of town but the centre is easily accessible and if you arrive by car Bologna centre has many vehicle restrictions so this is a good location (parking is €9 per night extra). Very contemporary rooms, high standard of finish in a corporate style, free wi-fi and a small but neat gym. The staff speak excellent English and are very welcoming. The breakfast facility is described as “American Style” although I don’t think whoever wrote that could have possibly been to the USA, but it is well stocked and offers hot and cold options of a good standard.
Modern but not not clinical, it is efficient and reasonably priced. Recommended.

TIPS:
1) There is a bus into town (the 25) from just around the corner and the staff will explain where the stop is. Its €1.50 per person, payable in the machine on board. Watch out coming back though, the bus doesn’t ‘loop’ you need the 25A. A taxi is about €10.
2) There is a largish supermarket right across the road but you’d never know. Cross the road outside and turn left, take the path that forks right and you’ll be there.
3) In the afternoon there is free coffee, juice, fruit and yoghurts in the coffee lounge!

Stunning hotel just out of the centre but an easy 5 min bus journey in. Hotel staff really couldn't do enough, breakfast was one of the best we had on our travels and there is free Internet and printing in the lobby which was very useful for printing boarding passes and maps! It's the number 25 bus from outside the train station(heading away from town) If you're staying more than 2 days get a bus pass at the station... It's cheaper :-) great room, great roof terrace where there's a lovely view... Would definitely stay if we visited bologna again... Was a bargain

We booked five double rooms expecting the hotel to be average with the price we paid, how wrong we were! Its slightly out of the centre, but the staff were very helpful in showing us where to catch the bus a few stops in to town. The underground parking for our cars was ideal too.

The huge lobby and spacious rooms are great, furnished in a very modern style. Everything was clean and nothing looked used. The bathrooms are pretty much 'wet rooms' with full size walk in showers. Beds were comfy and the air conditioning worked well. Lots of choice at breakfast which was included also.

Nice city even if we only had one evening to explore, would definitely go back to the SavHotel!

This place wasn't especially memorable or something to write home about, but it hit all the right spots. It's just outside the city center, and new constructions, so the rooms and lobby are well sized. They offer bicycles and parking, the beds are comfy, bathrooms are nice and big, the staff is friendly enough, and it's well priced.
Again, not memorable, but great for what it is (and a great breakfast!).
