    Fabulous

    The staff politely took care of us. The breakfast was good. Convenient to the city center by bus.

    Enrance of the car parking is very narrow. The facility was a little old.

    Very nice rooms in 70's style. We had a sofa and the room was large. Daily cleaning with new towels and large balcony.

    From 16 free tvchannels one was not functioning (11) and other 4 were almost scrambled or picture doubled. The interior sound isolation needs to be enhanced because sometime we heard what our neighbours were doing in the bathroom. One last funny thing is that our room seemed to be hounted because at 1-2 am the floor was making funny noises like someone stepped slowly on it. And this thing was repeating every night at the same hour. In the last night we slept with the tv open to avoid hearing those noises. Probably it was a technical issue with the floor but it was ... Scary :)

    Found the hotel good value for money at this price. Staff were very polite, friendly and very accommodating on all levels. Concierge service was excellent.The room was very clean, well-maintained, comfortable and peaceful. The atmosphere of hotel was excellent. We did enjoy every moment in the hotel.

    Breakfast did not contain fresh vegetables, fruits. Less sweets, more healthy dishes.

    Double rooms are really big, with bar counter and cooking facilities (though we didn't check if they work) inside! Located not in the center, but in a walking distance to it. It's a nice place for staying in Bologne.

    Very good

    Staff was friendly; old town is a 20 minutes walk away; my double room (used as single room) was large; room service was meticulous

    the noisy street at which the hotel is located; the room's interior design is old-fashioned; some faint but strange smell was in the room

    Spacious Junior Suite, very nice design compared to its age :) Good value compared to price. 10 euro taxi to airport and same to city centre (20 min walk straight road to centre)

    There was problem with our room on first night, we stayed in what I think was a delux single room. In Junior Suite was problem with opening of balcony

    We stayed in a very clean relatively large family suite and were upgraded to a much larger suite immediately when it was discovered that our air co wasn't functioning properly on one side of our room. Hotel staff was amazingly friendly and helpful and the hotel was impeccably clean.

    Was luxurious in the 70s maybe - it's like a trip back in time. Very pleasant nevertheless.

    Small, limited and hidden access (lift, entrance) full of stairs. Not for disabled.

    Fabulous

    Pleasant ang good looking staff always ready to assist you in case of any question or problem you have. I'm pleased of the restaurant and big choise of meals during the breakfast hours.

    I stayed in the 5 th floor and my internet connection was not so good in all area of my room, Furthermore i should pay 2 euro for each hour of internet which . So would be better to have a free and quality wi-fi internet connection.

    Superb

    Room was splendid. Large, well-equipped, modern. Hotel is a bit out of the centre, but is still near enough to be comfortable.

    The staff, while not rude, didn't seem to be bubbling with enthusiasm for their jobs.

    Superb

    We were upgraded and given a big suite that had a kitchenette and balcony. It was very spacious. The location was good and we easily walked into the main piazza.

    Decor was a little dated.
