First time arrivals in Bologna. Checked into this hotel at 11:10 p.m. and the Reception handled our reservations excellently. Upon check in, you will be given a map of the city and your receptionist is way knowledgable so ask for their XLNT recommendations. People, this is a great hotel very close to the Train Station with excellent amenities. Room was...

Very nice hotel. Close to the train station but not far from the old center and Bologna's attractions (the city is amazing!). The room was very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was really good. Nice service and great food quality. We had a great time there. Highly recommended.

The place is kind of hidden and difficult to find, the parking lot is small, but once you get in the service is amazing, everyone is always trying to help you, very kind and warm welcome, I love the 4 days that we stay there, just in the heart of Bologna downtown!

We stayed twice, on the way two and from Germany! We loved the location, so convenient right in front of train station and not a far walk from Piazza. The room was super spacious and comfortable for our family of 4. Will return if we come to this area again!

Modern hotel located just in front of the main train station at Bologna. Walking distance to restaurants, amenieties and shops. Clean hotel with modern facilities. Breakfast was very good. Best if you are traveling by train.

Central, well-connected, convenient location. Good rooms, good facilities, Reception staff is helpful and friendly. This is the reason I chose the hotel more than once when visiting Bologna.

Does it get average or very good? It sits in between. The room we had was massive and comfortable and quiet, 6th floor, upgraded go executive room, which is worth the money. Breakfast was good, but the ham was cheap and coffee wasn't the best. The parking at 25 euros a day, Venice is cheaper at 16 euros, so it...
