Fabulous 8.8 From 818 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Convenient and large rooms
We stayed here for a brief stopover in Bologna. This room was actually the largest hotel room I have ever had in Italy! The room was large and clean. We loved it. The gym in the building is also nice. The a/c worked well. The hotel is right in front of the train station and a short 5/10 minute walk into the historic center. Unfortunately, the staff was rude to us upon check in, later questions at the front desk, and a phone call asking when check-out was. However, we liked this hotel and it was the perfect spot for our short stay. We would stay here again and we recommend it to others!

Review Concierge Rules but Kudos to Breakfast Team
We checked in at around 9:00 pm with only one guest relation personnel in the concierge and I am second in line when it’s my turn some guests came in without going in line and started asking questions in Italian, well the guy at the concierge would like to entertain everyone and one gentleman behind me completely annoyed by this system and he said , you have to fall in line even if you have a simple question to ask and I said give me my room first before you have to entertain someone not even in line. I know I am in “Italy”, but you have to follow some respectable system in a manner that a guest like will appreciate your hotel service- First come -first serve. But Kudos to the Staff of Breakfast (team) especially to their Supervisor (A Gentleman) and Svetlana who took care of us during our 3 nights stay, folks you did a great job.

A/C not very good
Everything was great except a/c does not cool very good! Even switched to different room and it was the same. A/c works normal but not able to cool room below 75F. For some that may be fine but we need it much cooler than that at night to sleep well.

Directly across the street from the train station. Very attractive lobby. Be careful of the revolving entrance/exit door - there is a step down to the sidewalk and if there is congestion the door can give you an unwanted shove - a poor design flaw.

Great and accessible
The hotel is opposite of the bologna station where buses and trains are available to go to the city center. It is around 20 mins away from the city center. The hotel is clean and nice. I had an early flight and would have missed the breakfast so they gave me a nice breakfast basket before i left.
