Stayed for 5 nights over the Easter weekend and what a treat! We booked a deluxe room and even though we like modern decor, we opted for the classical rooms since we were told these are slightly bigger. I am so glad we did.
We were given a corner room on the 4th floor facing the streets. Even though we were on the 4th floor, some street noise could still be heard, especially on Saturday evening, but this did not bother us. The bed was large and so comfortable. The bathroom was spacious and had a full size bath tub. Wardrobes were of a good size where one can place all clothes and put away luggage. I was a bit skeptical about the carpets since we were travelling with a 3 year old, but the room was extremely clean and we felt very comfortable letting him play on the carpets. All our requests were met and everything was ready in our room upon our check in.
We had a buffet breakfast complete with bacon, eggs, parma ham & various cold meats, mozzarella, cheeses, yogurt, cereal, fruit and various delicious pastries. TV was SKY box with many kid's channels, and the best thing is you can switch them to English too.My son was pleased with this, and it came very handy when we needed some quiet after a long day running around. We didn't have internet cause wi-fi was ridiculously expensive.We opted to go without it.
The hotel is very well located, in the middle of Viale Indipendenza, a short walking distance from both the train station and the city historic centre. We also found a great restaurant close to the hotel, called Il Moro. It had a varied menu, including pasta, pizza, fish and meats and we ended up going there almost every day of our visit in order to try different dishes.
Bologna is ideal as a base to visit other cities and the train station is very well connected to most cities in Italy. We visited Parma, Ferrara, Ravenna and Modena / Maranello. Trenitalia have really improved, with very straight forward automated ticketing service, and trains were all punctual so our plans for the trips went quite smoothly. I would suggest that tickets are bought online in order to avoid the hassle at the train station.
Had a great holiday and I would definitely recommend Internazionale Hotel. If I had to visit Bologna again, I will not look anywhere else and will surely stay there again.
