Grand Hotel Elite, Bologna
Bologna is a quaint city; this hotel, it’s ok.
They held our passports and we forgot to officially check out. It took them three days to mail them to us.

Nice rooms for Italy. Cleaning service didn’t leave towels after servicing the room, but overall clean. I would stay there again.

Grand Hotel Elite, Bologna
be careful...
Not the best hotel, and I dont know why its rated a 4 star. when I wanted to buy a pizza in thew room for delivery, the manager told me I would have to pay a ten Euro charge for eating food in the room. Just stay at another hotel, it might be easier..
James, us3 night trip
Grand Hotel Elite, Bologna
Hotel was wonderful and staff very helpful. Bar was a little understaffed. Walk to city center is legnthy. Can would be necessary at times.

Grand Hotel Elite, Bologna
The hotel is very good and clean. However, it is not centrally located in the historic center. Transportation is easy but it required additional planning.
