“Sleek, modern, safe: pluses and minuses on location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

Large, spacious, understated decor. As others have noted not in the centro storico. If you are driving a car, this is a plus. Anyone unfamiliar with this very old town should attempt driving in the old city, let alone finding a parking place. Great secure underground garage. We used both the 25 bus yo get into the main squares @ euro 1.5, and even rush hour Friday was a breeze. We used cabs to get to two tripadvisor restaurants, about 11 euros.
If you are traveling by train, perhaps not the place for you.

We took a driving day trip to San Marino, and the staff gave us very good directions and two alternatives.
Professional staff.

Room Tip: This is not a hotel where road noise or views are issues.

Myself and my husband spent a night at the SAV Hotel and could not be happier with it. Staff were so helpful and polite, rooms are extremely comfortable, modern and clean. Breakfast the next morning was vast, with a great selection. Will stay at the SAV happily every time I go to Bologna. And to top all of this was really affordable. Recommend it.

SavHotel is a fine hotel. Only one point down : it's far from the citycenter. By bus takes it 15 min to Bologna center.

hotel is clean,staff is very friendly and breakfast is great. We found the garage also very convenient.I think the SavHotel is for business travelers and visitors of the fiera of Bologna just ideal!

My wife and I spent three nights at the Sav Hotel in early September. This is a modern, clean hotel, with a very nice reception staff. Neighborhood at first appeared sketchy, but after walking around for a few days, we came to the conclusion that it was just fine. Rooms are clean and modern. Wifi is provided at no charge. The hotel is somewhat isolated from downtown, and our walk to downtown Bologna was about 1.5 miles along a busy street and over a bridge. I have already reviewed the restaurant - not so good. There is a very nice local coffee shop around the corner, and a nice coffee shop in the business complex across the street. Hotel suggested that we garage our car because there could be "problems", but there is free parking right outside, and upon reflection, that would have been just fine.

I booked this hotel because I had an extra night before my flight left.

First the only "mild" issue...but only if you don't have a car: it's a bit out of the town center. But I drove into the city to go and have dinner and I immediately found a parking spot for my lil' rental car. So, not really an issue.

The hotel staff is very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is very modern, very clean, convenient (free Wifi). The bathroom is equipped with a great walk in shower, really the way I like it. It's quiet, it's comfortable.
The breakfast buffet is very elaborate! Excellent job.

Seriously, you want a very convenient no fuss experience: this is where you need to be! And it's very close to the airport and the conference center.

Location Quite good and there's even a supermarket around the corner. Quite neighborhood. Very friendly staff. Clean rooms and the breakfast was excellent. Not far from the train station only 15 minutes by walk. Very good value for money compared to other hotels.
