    Very proffesional staff. Clean room. Excellent breakfast. Parking free of charge in garage. Quiet location.

    The only problem was that the air condition did not worked well. It was too noisy and not helping (too hot in the room). The extra bed was very unconfortable.

    Very good

    I really liked the accommodations, they were very nice, and the breakfast was really good. The price was unbeatable, and it really was fairly close to Centro Bologna.

    The front desk personnel watched my husband and I lug both of our children and all of our luggage up the garage ramp, making two trips. It is unclear that there is a lift from the garage to the rooms unless you really search for it, it was rude. Also, the front desk attendant when I arrived, greeted me, and took our passports, but then he ignored me when another Italian man came up to the desk for over ten minutes. Finally I asked if he was finished with my check in, and he said, oh, well Ill be another ten minutes, so you can go get your bags if you want. Also, the noise in the so called (soundproof) rooms is ridiculous, and in the middle of the night someone was thrown into our door in the hallway. and the heat is uncontrollable!

    Staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly in retrieving some keys left in the room after we had returned home! The breakfast was extensive and very nice. Good, quiet, comfortable room with courtesy tea & coffee, decent storage and an excellent corner bath!

    Fabulous

    Room looked like 5*. Reach and tasty breakfast. Very good restaurant by the corner (ask reception)! Public connection to the center is very easy - 50 meters to the bus stop plus 5 stations to the center. Clean rooms, large bathroom, fridge and kettle in the room. Garage parking under the hotel. Very good value for money.

    No WiFi in the room. You need to take public transport to get to the center.

    There was no coffee service after dinner.

    Superb

    The hotel was very clean, the staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel was in a quiet area. Easy access to Town Centre with a bus stop very near to the hotel.

    It was a bit far from the city and it took 25-30 minutes to get to the main Town Centre. It was difficult to find the hotel even from the train station, which was only a 15 minute walk.

    Exclusive

    The staff was very friendly. Repair works were going on in the hotel, but there was neither noise, nor dust. The breakfast was quite satisfactory. Apart from traditional pastry and croissants, there were various types of cheese and ham. The room was spacious, with operable windows. The bathroom was clean. There was intimate soap and special linen to wipe with after washing on the bidet.

    Overall a very nice experience. The room was comfortable and thoroughly clean, spacious bathroom. Staff - highly professional. The highlight were excellent breakfasts with a wide choice of salamis, cheese, sweet things and fresh pastries/bread daily. Good, strong coffee. An added feature is garage parking, free of charge. Location - not far from the centre. We will recommend this hotel to our friends and stay there for sure during our next visit to the lovely city of Bologna.
