    Right opposite to Bologna Main Railway Station, Good Breakfast, City Center can be reached in 10 mins by walk. Very Clean, Comfortable room and Friendly Staff. Internet access is free in Reception Area.

    Internet access is expensive if you want to access it from Room. But if you access it from your mobile phones, you only pay half the amount.

    The location is excellent - just opposite the central train station and very close to the historical centre. A good base for a visit to Bologna and the surrounding regions.

    It's opposite the railway station, which is why we chose it, as we wanted to use Bologna partly as a base to visit other towns.

  • Couple

    The hotel is in perfect central location with ease of access to the train station. The hotel staff were excellent in making sure that both my partner and I had the perfect romantic stay.

    the location right near the train station.

    The breakfast was not up to four star standards. Plenty of room for improvement

  • Single
    7.8

    The hotel was really brilliant. The hotel staff was very helpful. The breakfast was great in a very nice atmosphere (lounge feeling).The internet connection was very strong and fast (Swisscom).

  • Single
    7.4

    the location near the rail road station and the comfort of the lobby

    the impossibility to shut off completely the light in the bathroom

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    We had a lovely time, in a very clean and comfortable room. The staff was very helpfull and breakfast was good, (speccially the coffee.)

  • Family with children
    10.0

    We reserved two rooms and were pleasantly surprised to have two adjoining rooms given to us, without having to ask. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The proximity to the train station couldn't be beat. The sound proof windows were just that, we didn't hear any of the traffic below. Breakfast was tasty and varied. The reception staff helped us with dinner reservations. Everything was wonderful.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Being made to feel welcome

    Wifi should be included in the price. Garage price should be clearer upfront.
