"Old Hotel in the middle of nowhere."
I stayed at the hotel during the COSMOPROF in Bologna because there were no other hotels available near the venue. It was about 40 minutes from Bologna Fiere. The hotel staff are amazingly friendly and helpful. Due to the poor public transportation from the hotel to the venue the hotel made arrangements with the local bus company to accomodate the […] people attending the Cosmoprof. I guess due to the hotel being in a very small town access to public transportation and any convenient stores (Coffee shops, restaurants, convenient stores, mart etc) is difficult. The facilities of the hotel such as beds, television and public areas are pretty old by any metropolitan standards. The bed was way too soft and I couldn't sleep well. However, the restaurants were very inexpensive and the food was awesome. The pizza and pastas were the best I have ever tasted by the way. Over all, unless you want to spend some time in a small town for some quiet time I wouldn't recommend the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for business travelers"
The hotel is perfectly acceptable for the location. As pieve di cento is mostly a farm community about 25 minutes outside of Bologna. for the price the hotel is perfect. The Wi-Fi signal is only available in the lobby of the hotel. I was NEVER able to access it from my room or the restaurant (I was there for 10 days). I often lost all mobile signals […] in the restaurant. Overall the hotel is clean (a bit dated but again it was fine) and the staff was very friendly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great value for the money and friendly services"
It offers a great value for the price paid. Also, the courteous service and free mini bar inside the room is great.Genuine Expedia guest review
The air conditioning in the public areas was poor (hot), in the room was noisy and didn't cool. The bathroom in the room is big, but the shower extremely small, there no place where accommodate your personal belonging. At all, was a bad experience to lodge at this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was neat and well furnished. The food was excellent, but some of the people working at the reception lacked knowledge of the english language, room service was mediocre if at all it existed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Grand Hotel Once"
Very tired Hotel that once would have been grand. Soft furnishings very shabby, decor badly needing a makeover. Amenities closed or only open at certain times. More two star than four. This was a huge disappointment.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Cento and Pieve di Cento town centre"
I came for 3 nights on business. The hotel is very old style and rooms are old fashioned. The noise through the walls and door is so loud that I couldn't get much sleep even though I had a junior suite! On the plus side the staff were very polite and helpful. I would not recommend the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Grand Hotel Bologna - Definately Recommend"
We stayed in a junior suite with our 6 month old daughter in September. The room was very clean and well furnished, with a large bathroom which had a bath a separate shower and was also very clean. There was a good selection on offer for breakfast. The hotel was about a 10 minute walk from the centre of Pieve di Cento. We would definately recommend […] it and would stay there again ourselves. We had a very pleasant stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Onduidelijk over de afstand van het centrum."
De kamer is erg klein niet erg gezellig Prima bed , het hotel personeel erg aardig en behulpzaam de rest van het hotel is erg oud. Ontbijt was lekker. En het restaurant is prima en de piza is erg lekker. Het enig wat ik erg jammer vond is dat het erg slecht staat beschreven wat de afstand is van het hotel en het centrum en hoe je daar komt. En dus stopt […] niet vlakbij en de reistijd is 1uur van het centrum. Ik zal de volgende keer toch een hotel vlakbij het centrum nemen. Gr Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel impersonnel, vaut un deux étoiles"
Hôtel au milieu de nulle part. La piscine de l'hôtel est en fait une piscine municipale, avec ses contraintes (fermée les jours fériés par exemple)... La décoration de la chambre est très seventies, les lits inconfortables. Le Wifi ne passe pas dans toutes les chambres (obligés de changer en cours de séjour). Le buffet du petit déjeuner est très décevant […] (surtout après que deux cars d'asiatiques aient fait une razzia..). Seul point positif: des réceptionnistes charmants, prêts à donner des conseils.

"Albergo decadente e squallido da sconsigliare"
Gia da fuori si capiva che era squallido e decadente. Dentro non era molto meglio. Probabilmente un albergo degli anni 60 che non e mai stato ristrutturato e si vede! Ho dovuto passare una notte li per un convegno ma non vedeveo l' ora di andarmene l' indomani. Il colmo e che questo albergo ritiene di meritarsi 4 stelle!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel per turismo irtinerante"
Siamo una famiglia di tre persone ed abbiamo soggiornato solo due giorni (2-3 gen). In base alla nostra esperienza le quattro stelle sono dovute ai servizi accessori che noi non abbiamo usato, mentre per i servizi base (colazione e stato generale della struttura) si potrebbe considerare un 3 stelle. Si tratta comunque di un buon hotel. Punto negativo […] è stato la non corrispondenza della prenotazione tramite Expedia con la stanza poi assegnataci: la nostra prenotazione era per una stanza familiare con letto matrimoniale e due singoli, ci è stata assegnata una tripla.

Quattro stelle sono troppe ma c'è un ottimo rapporto qualità-prezzo.

No sé qué organismo concede en Italia las estrellas de los alojamientos ni cuánto tiempo transcurre desde que otorgan la primera puntuación hasta que lo revisan nuevamente, pero sinceramente, creo que este alojamiento lleva mucho tiempo sin que nadie se haya tomado la molestia de velar por él, porque si lo hubieran hecho (quien fuera), probablemente […] no estaría en una situación como la que nosotros hemos visto.

"This hotel needs a massive refurbishing!"

The very kind staff compensate the qualities of this hotel. In my room there was no heating and the sink leaked. The hotel looks very old and in need for and update. However the staff was kind and supportive in every request. SO IF YOU ARE JUST STOPPING BY... This a good stop and go place, however in the area there is better for less.
"Not a 4* at all"
11/02/13 Clod13 Frankfurt, Germany
I agree with other reviews: staff is (mostly) very friendly, especially Sonia and MaryLuz. The evening guy has no clue. As Taxis need to be reserved because there are almost no taxis around, we double-booked because he oversaw a notice made by Sonia that a taxi had already been booked. He also forgot to invoice us for a room which we then had to pay later on. Paying, that's another story. If you organize an event at their "Congress Centre", they're very difficult with invoicing and payments. I have not been able to sort out if it's a Hotel thing or an Italian thing. Rooms are max. a 2* Standard. I had the luxury of a suite, well, luxury...No A/C working, the room was at least 30°C hot, opening the window didn't do anything to improve temperature, on the contrary, additionally to the temperature I then had the smell of the kitchen. The Suite lead to (let's call it) a "courtyard" right where the Restaurant fans are. Restaurants: one evening we had a group dinner at their "Italian restaurant (not the pizzeria). We had tortelllini bolognese and carne asada fresh from their woodfire grill. Excellent! Really good. The other evening, a Saturday, we went to the pizzeria. We left because the pizzas would take 45 min. I wonder why that pizzeria is so big and can seat that many people if their pizza ovens cannot keep up with it. We went to their Fish Restaurant. We left after 20min without even having been asked for drinks. The "Congress Centre" is very Basic, don't expect fancy stuff but it did the job for us. Conference rooms are smelly and some of them don't have daylight. Take the ones with doors to open to the outside to get rid of their smell. All in all, our event was a success but we will probably not return because of the low Standard.

Had gone to Cento for Business Travel. The room was quite comfortable, but had to struggle a lot with the lock. Had a good view of the farms from the room. Staff was courtieous, especially the South-Asian receptionist. The breakfast was very good.. wifi was free and quite good..

Start was not that good when the receptionist stated that wifi is not working when I came to the hotel close to midnight. When I went to the room, it was hot which was not a problem because all I had to do is open the door at the balcony. It was clean and breakfast was better than average. Slightly old fashioned in look I guess but it is better than 50% hotel I normally stay when I am in the continent. So good luck in your stay wherever you are planning to stay. SLeeping was slightly problematic because I could hear the people next door.
"A very basic room with clean and comfort"
02/04/13 Elizabeth-Therese london
A long weekend staying at this hotel - its very clean although the room facilities are very basic in generally. Soap, shampoo, conditioner and tower were supplied. A bit far from the city centre so a car required to get around. Didn't have a view and its only a shower room for a single person. It was sufficient for the purpose of our stay as it was clean, quiet and comfortable bed to rest. It is not a four or five star hotel quality although the restaurant serves reasonable food. Clean and simple is what I love about this place.

No way a 4 stars hotel, with a small and dismal room, an uncomfortable bed, a dirty bathroom falling apart, no internet at all in my room, awful breakfast (everyhting stale). And a final surprise, at the checkout I could only pay cash, credit card machine was not working, maybe it was as old as the hotel...
"Can be better"
01/28/13 jiji22 Soignies, Belgium
We spend a week-end in this hotel. Rooms are ok but need to be a bit refreshed. Walls are not sound proofed. Breakfast is not very top for this level : no fresh fruit salad, no different eggs. We travel a lot and this kind of hotel should propose more. Infrastructure is very good. Restaurant: There are 3 restaurants (Pizzeria, Taverne and high class). 3 are very good. Staff at the reception is helpful and friendly. At the end, not a good hotel at all for price and level.
"Maybe this hotel was good 15 years ago"
06/07/12 Josenet Cologne, Germany
I stayed one week there and the conditions are quite low. Old rooms, it´s worth to see the beds with radio integrated, 80´s style. The bathrooms are not renovated and the key of the room...well let´s say it is not pocket size. Considering there will not be much more to choose around Pieve di Cento, it will probably be the best option, but do not expect any 4 star hotel, but 2 star. There is a Bingo downstairs if you want to do something ´special´
"the honest feedback!"

Great quite location, very simple and relaxed atmosphere but not sure if the hotel follows the 4* standarts. It was 30 mins trip from the airport and to the Cosmoprof Fair, very cost effective but thanks to a great hotel arrangements we been provided by the transport both ways:-). Impressed as the hotel staff spoke good English but opposite for the restaurant waitresses. Picca was excellent so was the hotel staff very friendly and helpfull:-) Clean rooms with no bath tubs, which i found very unusual, no coffee tea facilities in a room but thou the hotel offers 3 dining places and the lobby bar for the drinks/snacks. I have enjoyed as i met lovely people and felt very relaxed and simple evironment didnt put any pressue :-) best of luck guys, Massimo is the best:-) Regards Olita:-)
