Bargain! Quiet room (#509), clean and comfortable, thoughtful extras like soft drinks, a traveller's manicure set and shoe polisher. Had a suit press, as well, plus plenty of storage. Directly across from the train station where the airport shuttle drops you off. Very impressive for the price!

Nice hotel in a great location next to the Bologna rail station. If you want to center activities from Bologna, I can't imagine a better moderately-priced hotel (definitely not budget-minded). Rooms are super clean and nice, 5 minutes from the train station and 10 minutes walk from superb shopping and eating center of Bologna. Very nice, would stay again.

The hotel is right across the street from the train station. This is a great place if you intend to explore using Bologna as a base for day trips. Piazza Maggiore is within walking distance down a major shopping street. I stayed overnight and took a taxi to the airport for an early flight. I was upgraded to a larger room this visit. The smaller rooms are adequate and this one was quite large and comfortable. Some of the rooms don't have convenient outlets, but this room had several.

The hotel is right across the street from the train station and walking distance to Piazza Maggiore in the center of town. It offers a good breakfast. The room I was in this time was large and comfortable. The only drawback is that there was only one available electrical outlet and that was in the bathroom. Although there was a nice desk, you'd need a long power cord to plug in a laptop to work at the desk. WiFi is available - ask at the reception desk for an access code. Some other rooms I've stayed in here have had a more convenient location although you have to look for the outlet. Other than that the hotel was very good and the price was excellent at this time of year.

Nice hotel, reasonable rooms and rates. Across the street from train station which has a nice taxi stand, useful for a quick trip to a nearby town, or the airport. Right around the corner from the hotel is a great pedestrian street which leads downtown past numerous shops. Worth the stay, and a decent price for Bologna.

We booked only a day before arriving and got a very good rate. Breakfast was not included, but that was not a problem; there are at least two little take-out places with brioche-coffee deals nearby. Location is ideal for those arriving by train. Although the immediate surroundings lack charm, it's very easy to walk to more interesting areas. The surprise was free internet access, which seems unusual in Italy. The room was what we expected, comfortable but not spacious. The bathroom was small but certainly adequate. After the first night, we would have said that the soundproofing was excellent; however, the next day a very loud person arrived in the room next door. We could hear every word of her phone conversations until we banged on the wall. Not the hotel's fault, of course, and we would certainly use this hotel again if traveling to Bologna.

The hotel is directly across the street from the train station and is an easy walk to Piazza Maggiore. It's convenient for both sightseeing and day trips to go out exploring Italy using the trains. The rooms do not have many available electrical outlets and they may not be easy to find.

The reception was at all time understaffed.

We used Bologna to stay and visit several cities arround it, so the proximity of the railway station was fundamental. By the way, the trains are fantastic, specially the TGV to Florence (37 minutes sharp!). The hotel was calm, clean and spacious. About the four stars We had some difficult to find the fourth ... and the internet was really expensive.

The price for the weekend was excellent - normally the room price is much higher. The hotel is right across the street from the train station. An excellent location for travel. It is within walking distance of Piazza Maggiore, but not particularly close. Overall a good trade-off if you're taking day trips from a Bologna base.

My general experience was positive, although due to the air conditioned getting broken, we had to change to another room on another floor, which was a nuisance. Employees were kind and location is great. But I found the room too small for the price. The bed was huge, but the mattress was very hard. I enjoyed the breakfast but was not included in the price and cost too much. Usually I would not choose this hotel because of the high prices, but I was lucky to get a promotion an paid 100 EUR less than normal price. Otherwise I would never sleep there.

Das Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis stimmt. Hervorzuheben ist ein für italienische Verhältnisse sehr reichhaltiges Frühstücksbüffet. Wegen seiner Nähe zum Stadtzentrum - 15 Minuten zu Fuß durch Arkaden - empfehlenswert für Urlauber, die die Stadt besichtigen möchten. Wir würden das Hotel wieder buchen.

L'albergo è molto comodo per chi deve prendere il treno. I dintorni sono quelli tipici di una stazione ferroviaria, ma le camere che danno sul giardino interno sono silenziose. Siamo partiti molto presto la mattina e non abbiamo fatto colazione e quindi non so esprimere un giudizio al riguardo
