Where to start? The staff "rude", "rude", "rude", we asked for non-smoking rooms and got smoking rooms, the room was larger than normal but old and dirty. The breakfast was marginal and the parking was $30.00 per day. The location was right across from the train station, so if is convienent for train travelers.

We stayed in this hotel for three nights. The room was tiny and the bathroom was even smaller. Impossible to have a shower. Like most italian hotels, the foyer was nice but the room was a terrible dissapointment. Stayed in Bologna two years ago and had great trip. This time found people unfriendly and felt like I was in down...

My wife and I stayed one night at this hotel. We chose it because of its location directly opposite the railway station where the Aerobus from the airport (4.5 euros each way) stops. It is also a ten minute walk, along the straight porticoed Via Independenza, to the city centre. This road is lined with shops so is an interesting...

Despite making the reservation online via the Accor website with all my Privilege Card details included and served by the Duty Manager onsite upon checked in (again with my Privilege Card presented and validated),...

We , together with our children aged 6 , stayed at the hotel from Jan.07-11, 2006. It was wonderful stay. It is very well located right across the train station. Easy to reach all of city attractions by walking from the hotel. If don't want to walk, take daily ticket to access everywhere in the city. The Reception staff was...

Stayed for 2 nights. Location - The hotel is about a 10 minute taxi ride from the airport (fare about 15 Euros). It's directly opposite the train station, but noise was not a concern (the sound proofing in the rooms is probably quite effective). The centre of Bologna (Piazza Maggiore) is a pleasant 10 minute walk away along a street...
