Clean tidy room, well heated, good continental breakfast, great location and staff that went the extra mile. Perfect for a city break or base to explore the region as is right next to railway station. Would definately return

A hotel at classic style, small bathroom. Location is very good for travellers, exactly front of the train station, and walking distance (15-20 minutes) to piazza Maggiore. Breakfast is not special,but they have continental breakfast also( sausage, ham, eggs, cheese) and of course italian sweets are also.

This is my second time staying at this hotel. The first time was better than this time. The reservation desk staff was more friendly at my first stay. This time they look unhappy to me. I had two rooms this time. One for me one for my parents. My room was fine but my parent's room was a bit cold....

The reception staff were very friendly and professional but the hotel itself is very worn out. The décor is old fashioned, and the shower over the bath was tiny even for me and I'm a fairly small woman. The bathroom had a bidet and there was a trouser press in the room, which I think shows how old it is....

Stayed here Friday to Monday. Arrived 3rd March and receptionist greeted me with happy birthday. All reception staff very pleasant and willing to recommend places to eat and visit. Hotel very clean but rooms would benefit from some refurbishment. Breakfast buffet good choices and staff efficient. Location excellent - immediately opposite main railway station, airport bus stops there, and red...

This was my second stay in the Mercure Bologna Centro, the first one being about 4 years ago. The staff at check in/out and breakfast were very welcoming and efficient. The location is very good. It's only about a 15 minute walk to the main square and there are a lot of excellent dining options around. The closeness to the...

Stranger got given my room key and entered it in the middle of the night when I was sleeping - most distressful and scary experience of my life! Management was appalling at handling/ explaining what happened. Still waiting for inquiry to be properly done and compensations. Can only recommend NOT TO GO - Actually does not even deserve a 1...

Dear Mrs De Gastines We regret to hear that did not have a pleasant stay in our hotel and we apologize for any inconvenience you suffered. It's impossible we gave your key to any other guest because there's only one key per each room. The person who wrongly opened your room was our night auditor. He misunderstood the room number...

This hotel is right in front of the train station. It's also near the city walls and city centre is perfectly walkable. Staff was kind and quick. Breakfast is over priced. The rooms have uncomfortable beds and specially pillows. Bath tub/shower is very small. Overall bedrooms need renovation.

The only reason I chose this place to stay was its proximity to the main train station and after staying for two days I regret my decision. The hotel room look and feel resembles (furnitures and fixtures) 1980's. The fridge has used water bottles which were never replaced before alloting the room to us nor changed during our stay there...
