“A pleasant stay & perfect location”
Reviewed 18 November 2011

I would definitely recommend Albergo Centrale, Bologna. The location could NOT be beat as it is just around the corner from Piazza Maggiore. The staff were very polite and helpful too! It was convenient to have wi-fi in my room and english TV as well for those nights when I was feeling a bit home sick (I was traveling alone). The bed was quite comfortable. It was too bad there was virtually no view at all, but I didn't really spend much time in my room anyways. The breakfast was great in terms of Italian breakfasts, which are generally a non-event. It was actually probably the best breakfast I had the entire time I was in Italy and I have spent a total of 7 weeks traveling around Italy!

The room was verrrrrry small, which is fine and typically Italian. But, I was a bit disappointed about having to choose between having my own bathroom (which is what I had booked) or having air conditioning - I chose A/C because it was very hot and I wasn't feeling so great. Okay...I had a TERRIBLE hangover and it was super hot. haha. It was nice that the room had a sink in it!

I stayed here on the off chance that there would be a room left and there was. Very happy with the room, service and the shared room was spotless. Thank you! It was close to everything. I'll be back..

Albergo Centrale is superbly located near all that a visitor is likely to want to see or do in Bologna. The hosts and their staff are gracious and helpful. Rooms are clean, light and airy, and functional (vice faux luxury). Breakfasts are quite good. Good value for one's money. During our 4 day stay our fellow guests were a courteous and cheerful lot. Highly recommended.

We had paid such a low price for this hotel, we were not expecting much but it was a very pleasant surprise. The location is excellent, right next to the main piazza in Bologna and near a main bus stop, the room was spacious and clean, we had a little balcony and the bathroom was fine with the shower one of the best we had used in Italy. The breakfast was included in the price and was delicious. Would definitely stay here again.

Our family of four stayed here for 2 nights. It is in a terrific location in the centre of town. Our room was very large and spacious. The breakfasts are enormous and one of the best we had for our entire trip. The internet is not free and the water pressure for the shower is very, very low which was disappointing. The staff are very helpful and gave us two terrific recommendations for dinner which were not far and absolutely delicious. It is great value for money. We would stay here again.

This hotel was great for a couple of night's stay in Bologna. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially with bus travel around the town. The room was spacious and comfortable. Hot water a bit sparse in the morning but good when we needed to freshen up before dinner. The advice on where to eat was fantastic!
