    Internet absolutely no good everywhere including lobby. Our room in 2nd floor always smelled to food.

    Very good location in the centre. Helpful staff.

    Air condition did not work properly. Not possible to get roomtemp below 29C. Learned that many has complained on the AC in room 207!!!

  • Older travelers

    Great central location.Extremely helpful staff.Reasonably priced secure parking.Buffet breakfast in our room vg.Our hotel room decor was a little tired and would benefit from an update.This was our first trip to Bologna and we found it a very vibrant & energetic city.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    The hotel is very central, close to the main shopping area and the central part of the city. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

    The rooms are not up to four-star standard. The decor is old, the bathrooms definitely not 'spa-like' and the floors were uncarpeted, rather cold in January!

  • Family with children

    The location is fantastic. The hotel is comfortable and staff is excellent; friendly and helpful.

    Maybe the fruit juice selection at breakfast could be improved.

  • Older travelers

    The attitude of staff was very pleasent and helpfull.

    Although we called many times for the coldness of bathroom and room, the problem has not been solved permanently.The staff said that it is automatic and nothing to do with the system.I heard the same complain about coldness in the reception from the other guests.While the outside temperature was around 2-3 degrees of Celcius,the coldness is nor acceptable and is major obstacle for coming to this hotel in winter months.

    Location and staff are outstanding. The roof-top terrace is exquisite for a picnic dinner at sunset.

    The coffee at breakfast was weak - please serve strong Italian coffee.

  • Couple

    breakfast on the rooftop with a wonderful view. and the location - can´t be better.

    just for people with very good ears :-) ... the walls of the rooms are not that thick. but if you´re nosey, might be interesting.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Excellent staff and service at all times. Good location; excellent breakfast.

    Our room was very, very noisy as it was above a bar and it was impossible to sleep!

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    I loved the views; it was beautiful to sit in a terrace and see most beautiful roof tops of Bologna. It is wonderful to have a room with a view.

    A little bit outdated and a smell in the corridor. However, in the newer part of the hotel did not have a smell in the corridor. Overall, it's a lovely hotel for a short stay.

  • Family with children
    8.2

    All staff were well trained and very professional

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    Service was great. Breakfast had very large selection. Location is fantastic.

    I travel all the time, and this simply is not a 4 star hotel - though I hate to say that given how nice the staff were. The hotel actually supplies ear plugs in the bathroom supplies! You will hear lots of flushing water from other bathrooms (toilets, showers, sinks, everything), and lots of noise from neighboring rooms and the hall. I am a heavy sleeper and it disrupted my sleep.That being said, I wore ear plugs the 2nd and 3rd night and all my problems were solved! I was left with a hotel with great service, great breakfasts, and great location!

  • Family with children
    8.2

    The Lobby and the views form the balconies. Also the breakfast menu/buffet was very good.

    The room furniture could be better although the room space is enormous.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Very well located and fairly priced. However, would rate as 3-star rather than 4-star.
