We stayed two nights at the Mercure Hotel in Bologna City Center. It was an old world hotel but very comfortable and clean. The room was quite large, modern bathroom, helpful staff. The hotel is located in the heart of the city, right across the street from the train station and near all the city center sights and shopping. We...

We secured an outstanding rate for the Mercure Bologna Centro, and when we arrived we had realistic expectations - for around 50 euros a night in a city centre, perhaps the rooms are miniscule, or the decor is faded. Neither turned out to be true - rooms were immaculately clean and richly furnished in a conventionally comfortable style, they were...

We only stayed here one night on our way to somewhere else. The hotel is obviously geared towards business travellers, but we found it fine for this. It is in an easy and convenient location, across the road from the train station but not much of a walk into the main part of the town either. When we first arrived...

Superb hotel. Fantastic location - easy access to city, train station and central bus station (easiest way to Forli and Ryanair flights). Clean rooms. Only issue was they didn't get very cool because air conditioning was weak. But it was still comfortable! Breakfast is extra and we didn't indulge. Don't get a coffee near the hotel - it'll cost you...

We have just returned from a long weekend in Florence and Bologna, staying in Mercure Centro for one night only. We chose the Mercure because of its proximity to the train and coach stations as the stopover was intended to ease the journey back to Forli airport, from where we were flying back to the UK early in the morning....

I spent 45 E/night for the hotel, as I booked and pay in advance (via their web site). For this price, it was very convenient, and the overall quality is acceptable. Furniture is a bit old, the air conditioning is both noisy (it costantly wakes me up early in the morning) and relatively cooling (I guess it's blocked to save...

Hotels in Italy are not cheap and may have poor quality. At this hotel I got a good size double room /single use for 80 euros/night with buffet breakfast. It has a very nice private garden on the back that you see from the windows of the bedrooms facing that way. Very clean, tidy and pleasently decorated. Everything you need...

We stayed there one night, on our way to Southern Italy from London by the train. It proved an excellent choice, being righr opposite the station but from there it was only a ten minute walk to the historic centre. Reception was highly professional and clearly supervised by the Manager, who proved highly efficient. Our room was quiet, clean and...

Second stay in this hotel (two years ago when still under the Sofitel flag). Hotel is well situated (opposite the train station) as per every city in the world , there are drunks and druggies hanging about in this area but nothing to feel unsafe about. The rooms are quite large for European hotel, a little dated in decoration and...

We arrived at the hotel very late (1 a.m.) and checked out early (9 a.m.) so my impressions are limited. Although the lobby has a moderni-ish feel, our room was very brown and definitely in need of redecoration. Nonetheless, the room was spotless, the bed comfortable and the a/c worked well. On the tv, we had about 7 Italian channels...
