“10th August 2012 - Good stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2012

My brother and I (25 and 22 years old) were looking for a break in Italy. We picked this particular hotel purely because it had a pool, and intended to spend most days sunbathing. We stayed for 7 nights.

Overall, the experience was very good. The hotel throughly deserves it's 4* rating. The room was spacious, clean, and fully air conditioned. There was also free wifi (via a code you get from the front desk which allows you 12hours surfing time).

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.

The price of the hotel restaurant and bar were extremely overpriced (4euros for a can of coke/ 7 euros for a pint of beer). We ate at the restaurant the night we arrived. The portion sizes were very small, and I had to ask my pasta to be reheated.

After the first night, we decided to stock up on food and drinks from the local supermarket.

The breakfast was a buffet, which was the same each day. Plenty of variety, but fairly basic.

The location of the hotel isn't ideal. We used taxi when travelling into Bologna or to the supermarket and it normally cost 10-12 euros each way. The hotel is right next to a motorway which makes walking rather difficult.

We visited the city of Bologna, and also got on the train to Florence which was very reasonably priced when we booked online.

I would stay at this hotel again.

We spent two full days more or less only by the pool.
Clean, and deep.
Everything! Was perfect exept the following:
Price on food and drinks.
Breakfast very crowded and when we came down, most food and plates were out, but the staff did what they could to fill, but they were not enough of them.

We will do this again!

Really nice reception area and friendly staff, one of the good Novotel hotels, parked on the limited free parking area another car near mine was robbed, side window smashed, it would be safer to park in the secure payed car park. Visited town centre by taxi on the way to to town payed 16€ on the way back 12€ same distance, a friend of mine had similar problem with a taxi driver making the distance longer by choosing longer routes and was rectified by showing the driver google map. One of the receptionist advised us a restaurant in town centre on our request cannot remember the name but the good was really good.

We stayed here a night on our way to Austria and we had a great experience. The rooms are clean, the pool was very refreshing and I can't say enough on how helpful the front desk staff was. Giada helped me out at the front desk and even printed out a map for me to get us to our eating location. The hotel can accommodate a family of four in a single room which is rare for a European hotel. Definitely a great hotel for the money, a true value.
