Very Good8.0
Service could be better
It was good location. Room was clean , but busroom had black mold, room door did not open easy at first, so I had to go back to the front desk. When I did check out, some people after me got helped before me. I was waiting long time.

Fantastic Hotel, convenient
I stayed att his hotel before the recent renovation and it was merely convenient. Now it is a clean, quiet, convenient and superb place to stay in Bologna. You can easily walk through the City, and it is not only near the Station,but very near the bus that goes to the amazing food halls at the new Eataly. Highly recommended.
