Nice room, even if not enormous. It has everything necessary. The breakfast is good with a big choice, in particular for an italian hotel, and there is a friendly, helpful, but still professional staff.

The hotel is in the center of Bologna and close to all the great places to see. The room was quite spacious, good wi-fi and comfortable bed. Staff was very friendly and helpful and breakfast was quite ok. There is a small supermarket to buy what you need very close and great places to eat and shop.

The location of the Albergo Centrale could not be any better. It is only a step away from all the major sights of the city and only about 15 minute walk to the railway station. And eventhough the location is this central we were pleasantly surprised how quiet the room was - absolutely no noise from the streets. Very nice... More

Dear Sirs, One word: what you say is false. I paid € 154 to book your room in the other hotel. All he says is false. Our problem is that you have not found another hotel well and you want to put the blame on us, for that we are very sorry. Regards More
