This was my first visit to Bologna and I was very pleased with the service provided by Hotel Maggiore. The staff were very efficient and helpful - reception, breakfast and chamber staff. The breakfast offered a good range of fresh fruit and pastries each day and the staff were always welcoming and attentive. My only quibble would be the location of the hotel outside the historic centre by a good 20-25 minute walk. However, there were a number of bus routes operating from the main road just a minute away and tickets were available from the tabacchi so there was never too long to wait. And the journey into town only takes 10 minutes or so. There was also a large supermarket nearby to stock up on toiletries, fresh fruit etc I think I got excellent value for money from my stay, given the 3 star standard of the hotel. It was also convenient for travelling to the airport. The bus actually passes the hotel on the way in but doesn't stop there. Reception ordered me a taxi on check-out which arrived very promptly and charged 13 euros to take me back to the airport. I would recommend the hotel to anybody without hesitation, unless you really need to stay in the centre of town.

Good quality hotel with easy access via bus to city center, and only a short taxi ride to/from airport. Shutters help block traffic noise so is it fairly quiet. Nearby Trattoria Zita offers excellent food, we had one of best meals of our trip there. Hotel had nice cocktail buffet in evenings, and good breakfast. You can buy bus tickets at hotel, including tourist "hop on/hop off" bus and local bus. We would stay here again.

We stayed in five hotels during our trip and this was the most disapointing. Room was smaller than other, not real clean, out dated and noisey. We had booked two nights and asked if we could check out early without a penalty. Day desk girl said OK, not problem. When we check out they said we would have to pay a 1/2 room charge for check out early. His was resolved without a penalty.

The front desk agent was very helpful in directing to the town center-you could bus, but we found that hot and crowded. A taxi fare of 8euro was much more convenient. Since we had a car it mattered to us about the onsite parking. The room and bathroom were comfortable and the breakfast was very good

I stayed at Hotel Best Western Maggiore in early April. The hotel is a very nice real 3-star hotel on the outskirts of Bologna center. I had a three person room comprised of two single beds and a sofa bed. The room had two wardrobe closets, a flat screen TV, a large bathroom, and a minibar refrigerater. The room was very clean. The beds we had were hard mattresses for those that like this style (I do). Breakfast was buffet style and offered eggs, bacon, sliced ham, meats, cheese, cereals, fruits, and breads and rolls. All three front desk personnel I dealt with during the weekend were friendly, readily answered my questions, and basically made my stay enjoyable. The hotel is off the main road but easy to find as there is a large sign with an arrow for Hotel Maggiore. When you arrive at the airport, take the BLQ Aerobus (5 euros per person) and exit at the Ospedale (hospital) Maggiore stop, which is the first stop on the Aerobus line. The stop is about 500 yards past the hotel. The other option is to take an airport taxi but I don't know the cost of the trip (between 10 and 20 minutes depending on traffic). I would not walk as there are spots between the airport and the hotel without sidewalks. There are about four eating establishments within a 5 to 10 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel does not serve dinners. The hotel is about 20 minutes from the Bologna train station which you can access from buses 91 or 39. The bus stop for 91 is left of the hotel (along the main road) about 200 yards (stop Prati di Caprara) and the buses begin running at 0549. The bus stop for 39 is about 700 yards (stop Saffi) to the right of the hotel (along the main road) and the buses begin running at 0524. Returning to the hotel from the main train station take either bus 38 or 91. You can purchase bus tickets (1 euro per ticket) from the front desk of the hotel or the tobbaco shop across from bus stop Prati di Caprara before 8pm. Validate the tickets when you board the bus.
