Good price and the room very comfortable. The bathroom is very modern. The air conditioner of my room never worked and I reported it. The room has a mini refrigerator with drinks and chips. The hotel is very near to the bus station Ospedale Maggiore and is just 10 minutes by bus to the center of Bologna. You can go...

Nice and tidy with comfortable beds and complementary chocolates, Hotel Maggiore is a really nice place to stay while in Bologna. It is not exactly in the city center but it has a convenient location if you need to catch an early flight as it is a couple of km away from the airport and it is close to the...

Spent a week here while on a business trip in the area. It was nice to have parking on location. There is also a nice little sitting area outside to relax after work or on the weekend.

Always nervous booking hotels abroad, especially when offered at an amazing price however all nervous gone once we arrived. Hotel was excellent value for money with very friendly helpful staff.

This is a perfectly comfortable hotel away from the city center but convenient to the airport. There is little if any ambiance, but the bed was fine, the room was clean, and the shower worked. I did not have the breakfast so cannot comment. A great little restaurant (Trattoria Zita) is nearby. A good choice for a budget stay.

Well, we took this hotel for the overnight stay between 2 flights, not really at the airport, good 12 EUR by taxi from the airport. There was something mentioned, about shuttle to the airport. Well, nothing like this. During the day and night, we were told to take a taxi..... From outside, it doesn't look really welcoming, don't get scared!...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Maggiore Bologna is a welcoming place and we deeply take care of our guests. Our aim is to make you "Feel at Home". The slender eight storey building which houses the hotel rises up in a very unusual place, a connection point between the city centre of Bologna and the Emilian productive areas, a lively and hardworking area rich in Italian excellences and multiculturalism. The hotel is in a central location, out of the controlled traffic zone, next to the Ospedale Maggiore, at 1.5 km from the historic centre (easily accessible by bus or by bike), at ten minutes from the airport, the Ducati headquarters, the Unipol Arena centre, next to important companies and important scientific and cultural centres such as the Opificio Golinelli and the MAST. It is easily accessible from the motorway and the main communications routes and we offer a free parking service. Core of our idea of welcoming are the central location, our friendliness and the attention to every detail. As well as wanting you to "Feel at Home", we also commit for a sustainable mobility. Among our facilities you'll find a free parking service, a shuttle service, a bycicle rental service, both for traditional bikes and e-bikes, bus tickets at our reception desk. Finally, we'll be very happy to give you information on events not to be missed and places to see in the city and province. ... more   less
