Hotel Albergo Atlantic
Ranked #27 of 102 Hotels in Bologna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 August 2011

We moved to this hotel on the basis of a recommendation from the Tourist Info service after having spent a rather dreadful night in another accommodation in Bologna with no air con (in 40 degree heat in Bologna in August - no fun at all)!

At 60 euros a night including breakfast, it was good value for money. The hotel is clean and recently decorated and is modern, but in a way that reflects the Italian style (lots of marble, tiles and wood ceilings). Our room was lovely - suitably spacious, modern bathroom with a small balcony area and an additional set of french doors with a juliet balcony. Air con system was excellent - a delight to come back to at the end of each day. Modern lift is installed in the hotel.

The staff were very helpful, making recommendations about restaurants, places to see and helping with a postal issue we encountered. They went the extra mile.

Facilities in the room are a little limited (no fridge/minibar/kettle) but typical of this type of Italian hotel.They were very obliging, however, and provided me with a small jug of boiling water whenever I wanted to make tea (including at 11pm!).

We almost didn't book in here because after the TIC recommendation, we checked tripadvisor and saw the comments re breakfast. I'm astonished at them. The breakfast room is light and pleasant and provides:

Fresh coffees/cappuccino and tea - all made by the staff in front of you
fresh fruit (nectarines, peaches, apples, apricots, bananas on all 5 mornings we were there)
croissants and pastries
fresh cheese
small packs of pate
yoghurts (at least 4 flavours)
preserves and nutella
Two types of juice (admittedly not freshly squeezed, but for 60 euros a night for 2 people..!)

We are discerning eaters and found it to be more than adequate.

The location is excellent. The hotel is 10 mins slowish walk from Piazza Maggiore and 10 mins slowish walk from the train station. It is in a quietish street just off the main drag and opposite a small convenience store (which we found useful for cold drinks and fruit) and an utterly sublime gelateria (Stefini's). There is a superb, reasonably priced restaurant within a few minutes (Trattoria dal Biassanot - try the Maccheroni with truffle - divine).

We couldn't have asked for anything more of this hote. We had room 123 and wouldn't hesitate to go back there.

Room Tip: Room 123 was lovely with balcony area

Upon arrival I was greeted with excellent service from the front desk. I was travelling with a friend who had checked in earlier that day, and although the booking was done in my name, the staff at the front desk were accomodating to my friend letting her check in early. The room was very big with one queen size bed and one twin, along with two decent size bathrooms that included showers. Breakfast was included and was pretty good...as in most included breakfasts your choices more or less only include pastries and some cheese and meat selections. We were able to order different kinds of coffee that were brought to us by the hotel staff. The location of the hotel was perfect as it was about a 5 minute walk to the Piazza Maggiore and near the main streets of Via Galleria and Via dell' Indipendenza. I though the location of the hotel along with its affordability made it a great place to stay while in Bologna! Excellent hotel staff and service and would definitely stay here again!

This place is located on a tiny street inside the city circle, so it's a great location but can be touch to find. The room was very spacious and the bathroom was really nice! Id stay here again but make sure your ac is working properly. It's a wonderful old building- but with that comes some maintainance. No big deal. Enjoy!

Close to train station, not a lot of space in the room. Plan on getting breakfast somewhere else, and they will give you an ethernet cable to connect to the wall for internet, no wifi. Thin walls as we heard too much of the neighbors activities one night.
We stayed here for 2 nights, but only because we went to Venice for one of the days. In my opinion one day is plenty to see Bologna. There is a little family run pizza shop, Pizza Cose, across the street that we ordered from and brought back to he room. They were very kind and it was good. Also dined at Trattoria del Rosso on Via Augusto Righi 30 that we enjoyed.
