Our family room was huge, with a separate kitchen area, loads of wardrobe space and balcony overlooking the hills to the San Luca basilica. The black out blinds will ensure that you get a good night's sleep. The hotel was spotlessly clean and all staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel has free wifi, fridge in room and a gym....

Room was comfortable and clean - we stayed as a family of 4 in the room. The breakfast was good, too. - Generally good value for the money. The only negative point is the distance to the ("historic part" of the) city center which is around 2 km to walk.

Great value for money, the rooms were large and comfortable for 5 of us. The breakfast was good value and very tasty with something for everyone. Couldn't quite figure out the aircon but couldn't be bothered to ask either as it was not a big issue. Would stay here again.

Spent 4 nights at this hotel. As always I like to get the negatives out the way first. For a 4 star hotel I was disappointed. There was no safe in the room which meant every time we went out it was with passports, cameras, kindles, tablets, phones and any other valuables. Not good. There was also no kettle or...

We spent three nights here from the 1st to the 4th of April.The hotel was clean and welcoming whilst the room was large and pleasant with a quasi Art Deco style. The hotel staff were extremely polite and helpful and the room was cleaned and linen changed each morning. We only spent limited time within the hotel as we were...

Bologna, on exhibitions periods, which is almost all the year, becomes an expensive place to stay. Hotels are expensive and it's difficult to find one which a good average price/quality. This is my experience after 27 years attending the Bologna Children's Book Fair. Grand Hotel Elite covers your expectations. Not at hotel luxury, you find there whatever you need. Service...

I was only in Bologna for one night and had a busy schedule, so, this was only somewhere to sleep. The hotel has a very strange style, art deco meets 60's East Germany? The rooms were very large, mine overlooking a park and my colleagues looking upto the hills surrounding Bologna, and, despite beeing on a busy road it was...

There is nothing Grand about this hotel - i'm struggling to see if it ever was. Positives were our room was spacious enough for 3 people and very clean with beds and towels changed daily but that's it. The room was dark and dingy, furniture scruffy and scratched with a horrid laminate floor and strip lighting, not a place i...

Good staff, nice room, lovely breakfast, what more do you want???? Well trip advisor said I had to submit 200 words. What a bore, I thought I had said it succinctly. Not sure why anyone would be scathing of the Hotel.

Thew first room we have booked was not prepared well when we arrived because we have asked for single beds and there was a couple bed. But the problem was quickly solved.The second room was bigger than the first and I really liked the accomodations.I suggest to have more fruits in the breakfast as paya for instance.
