A nice room with excellent breakfast for a very low price. It was quiet and easily accessible from downtown with the 25 bus.

We expected a little bit more from this hotel but in the end the location was offset by truly friendly and exceptionally helpful staff.
The room was very modern and decent.
Bus stop located right outside the hotel was great in helping us get to the centre of the city, which itself was quite lovely.
Thanks to the staff for all their help and if you are not too fussed with being central in the city than seriously give this hotel some consideration.

As someone who does not travel frequently, I'm not able to offer any comparisons between my experience here and at other hotels. However, the week that I stayed here was fantastic.

The double-room was a good size, not overwhelmingly huge but not small enough where it felt cramped. I absolutely loved the huge window in the room. The view was of the street and nothing exceptional, but it helped to not make me feel "trapped" within the hotel. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was absolutely gorgeous and quite spacious. The rooms look exactly how they appear in the pictures.

Staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. The room and the other parts of the hotel were always clean and well-kept. Free internet was plus and it always worked. Free breakfast was also very good and had a quite a variety of choices.

The only "downside" of the room was that there is no closet and I had to keep my clothes out in the open on wall-hooks that were provided and my boyfriend kept his in his suitcase. It wasn't a big problem, just unexpected.

You do need to take the bus or drive into the main part of the city, but it only takes about 10-15 minutes by bus.

The hotel had made a mistake with the reservation and told my boyfriend that we only had the room for two days, when he had made it for a week. However, the staff fixed the problem within 5-10 minutes and were pleasant and apologetic for the misunderstanding.

Located near convention center.
Upside – this is truly a diamond in the rough. The property is new and everything meets Ramada criteria for hospitality. Local bus stop located in front of hotel made downtown very accessible, plus inexpensive. Breakfast was American style with ample bacon, sausage and fresh fruit. Afternoon “Happy Hour” provided time to wind down from the days’ trips. Staff exceptionally friendly and helpful from the Front Desk clerk to the barista.
Downside – removed from downtown core.
Definitely recommend this hotel and plan to stay there next time. Accommodations far exceeded value. If it isn’t, it should be a 4-5 Star hotel.

Whether staying for one night or longer, just outside of Bologna, this hotel is exceptional value, we travelled for two weeks through Italy, Germany, Austria, this hotel was the best by far, the least expensive, the cleanest, with good size bedroom and bathroom. The staff were all friendly and helpful, plus they all spoke English. Would highly recommend.

We felt the hotel was excellent value for money. The design of the hotel is chic and modern. The bathroom was particularly stylish as well as functional. The staff extremely courteous and helpful. The free breakfast was good with a lot of choice. We were only staying for 1 night as we were driving to southern Italy. It was in a very convenient spot and when we visit Bologne again we will definitely stay here. We had stayed in France in the Premiere Classe hotel which was far inferior to this classy hotel. Well done Ramada Encore and Bologne.

We stayed in Bologna for a day before returning to the States after our trip to Italy. For 80 Euros we were able to get two adjoining rooms, one for my wife and I and one with 2 twin beds for our 4 and 6 year old. So nice to have 2 rooms when traveling with kids! Didn't have the opportunity to try the free breakfast as our flight was at 6 am, but the hotel booked our taxi for us the night before and they also stored our luggage for us before check-in.

The 25 bus is very convenient and about 10 minutes to the train station, which is the basic entry point to the city center. If we were in Bologna for more than a day, I may stay closer, but the hotel is modern, clean, and very, very well priced. Our taxi was 20 Euros to the airport, which was also reasonable and about 10 minutes away.
