The first thing to say about this hotel is that it is situated in the north of the city requiring a lengthy walk to get downtown. Around 10 minutes to reach the end of Via dell' Indipenza and then another 20-25 minutes to reach Piazza Maggiore. Which gets a little tiring after a few days. Give this some consideration as...

The hotel is ideally located just outside the old city so does not have the added burden of permits and parking restrictions. A short walk (5 minutes) gets you into the old city. Modern hotel, with clean functional rooms and on-site parking. Breakfast were good with a good selection to satisfy all tastes. Bar is very good with snacks provided...

My partner and I were visiting Bologna for a look weekend, and booked this hotel as part of the airline package available. I had contacted the hotel before arriving, to ask if they could arrange a cake and bottle of wine for my partners birthday, and when we arrived it was in the room. Off to a great start! We...

Big, comfortable beds. Soft pillows. Nice bathtub. Espresso maker in the room. Gigantic flat screen TV. Big windows that open. Efficient service at the front desk. Free parking right outside. It's an easy 15-20 minute walk into town. There's a Lidl right across the street - for 5 euros we bought breakfast of bread, croissants, cheese, mortadella, yogurt, fruit. We...

Picked bologna as a new place for a weekend and it is fantastic - food and buildings are amazing. Selected this hotel as part of Marriott group and used points to pay so no cost pretty much.

I booked this hotel thinking that it was close to the central part of Bologna. However, it is about a 25 min walk from the tourist centre and about 15 mins to the rail station. It is in a fairly undeveloped area and as a woman travelling by herself, I was a little nervous walking to and from there. The...

The AC is a decent budget hotel, a little out of town (wrong side of the train station) in an underdevelopped area. The hotel is however relative new, clean, with good wifi and ok breakfast. The rooms at the front are a little noisy though, due to traffic.

In all my 50 years at staying in hotels this was by some way the worst experience I have ever had. That includes a very cheap and unpleasant back-packers hotel in Paros, Greece. If you do nothing else, NEVER STAY HERE in such a badly managed hotel with wallpaper falling off the walls, graffiti everywhere outside and gangs roaming around,...
