“Don't do it”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2011

We have stayed in many 3 star European hotels but this was among the worst. The hotel is in an alley. It has a decent lobby but it is not an indicator of the rooms. The room was decorated in early Tom Jones 70's mirrors and plastic. Pipes were exposed from where leaks had occured. Bed was less than sanitary looking.
Although we only stayed there 1 night it was plenty. The weather was unseasonably warm and the room was hot and stuffy which warranted opening the windows. Unfortunately our window was near the kitchen of some restaurant. The kitchen people must have been having a dish tossing contest because I have never heard so much noise in my life. It continued until well after midnight. Lucky for us the alley was also a hangout for teenagers. We complained to the front desk and they assured us the kitchen noise would end by 11 and there was nothing they could do about the noisy teens.
So you say "Why didn't you turn on the air conditioning and shut the windows?" Wellllllll they don't turn the air on until JUNE!!!! regardless of the weather.
Needless to say we would not recommend this hotel to anyone we liked.

Hotel is situated 5 minutes from the train station and within walking distance to Piazza Maggiore 3 mins. Situated in a small alley, a very central small hotel but with very clean, comfortable and well air conditioned rooms. Hotel staff very helpful and friendly, all spoke good english. Very good buffet breakfast. Very good value for money. Area full of shops, restaurants, gelaterias and supermarket. Would definitely recommend it. Travelled there with family of older children. Whilst there don't miss out trying Trattoroia Mariposa, on same street. BEWARE of pizzeria DUCALE in via oberdan, if you are tourist, they will try to rip you off!!

It is a small comfortable hotel with wonderful location in the center of Bologna. Small, but clean room, very helpful and smiling staff, varied tasty breakfast. There is a supermarket nearby, many restaurants and of course... gelaterie, two towers are only 2 min from the hotel, and the central train station is only 10 minutes away by foot if you want to explore the region around. Because of its excellent location in the heart of historical center, the hotel is close to all sights.

What more could you ask for?
On a slightly dodgy side street just off the Independenza, the Hotel Holiday was a fabulous one night stand. Very friendly staff, perfectly good breakfast with the best machine coffee we've had for many a day, and a 5 minute walk to the main shopping action.
Highly recommended.

This hotel was an easy walk from the train station even with a woman in a wheel chair. The staff recommended great food in the area. The lift was in good working order and the room was very secure. The internet was not free but the price was not bad and it was very reliable.
