“Great business and vacation option in Bologna”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2011

Stayed for business in this bolognese hotel just 2 blocks away from via della Indiependenza, the main street in Bologna. Clean and well maintained rooms in a modern building with a Clarins Spa in the hotel. Definitely recommend, excellent value, breakfast included.

Everything was perfect starting from my room till breakfast (big variety - Good quality foods) - The dinner at the Restaurant was nice and there is a huge gamma of drinks and wines to select.
I would like to note that the Wi-Fi internet connection is not free of charge even for the guests of teh hotel. You should buy a voucher at least for 1 hour at 5 euros!!!

Room Tip: I stay there only for 1 night but from my short experience, i suggest to ask for a room close to ele...

The hotel is very ok, but what is lacking are international TV channels My room (634) only had Italian channels, not even one English or other foreign language channel. In addition internet connection is charged at 10 € per day. These should not be issues for a 4**** hotel.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2011

Our superior room (549) was clean, spacious and nicely decorated, the bathroom wasn't as big as I expected to be in a 4 stars hotel but anyhow it was ok.
The hotel has a huge lobby, a bar, a restaurant and a dedicated breakfast area, it is located near the railway station and the historic center of Bologna (piazza Maggiore is 5 minutes by foot), a bliss if you want to visit the town.

We had a nice dinner at the hotel's restaurant (called NeoClassico), the staff has been very nice and caring, the food was delicious and the wine lists (they have two of them) were wide and included half bottles, even though they do not have any wine by the glass.

The breakfast buffet has a great variety of choices, includes three fresh juices (orange, grapefruit and pineapple), fresh fruit and the usual sweet and salty stuff, remarkable.

The only spot I have to report is about the parking, I discovered during the check out that I had to pay 18 euros for leaving my car less than 24 hours in the hotel parking. Being a four stars hotel I expected this service to be included in the cost of the room, at least I would have appreciated to be informed beforehand about this additional fee.
