    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.

    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.

    Exclusive

    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.

    Being made to feel welcome

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