Positive Reviews

Good location close to central Bologna.

The hotel is a prime spot for train travellers given its convenient location near the Bologna Central station. The proximity to public transport makes it easy to get around Bologna, and there are a number of restaurants and cafes within walking distance as well.

Excellent breakfast buffet.

The hotel’s daily breakfast spread was praised by guests who stated that the quality and selection of food was very good. People with special dietary needs also appreciated the offerings of vegan and gluten-free options.

Traditional building has lots of charm.

The neoclassical building was a hit with reviewers. The architecture and decor are loaded with European character and Italian charm, making it a popular place for visitors who crave something more traditional than typical modern hotels.

Negative Reviews

Staff could use more customer service training.

Many guests noted that the customer service provided by the hotel staff did not live up to four-star standards. Reviews stated that the reception staff was rather cold and disinterested and that employees did not seem very friendly or warm.

The hotel rooms could use refurbishing.

A number of reviewers stated that while the building and lobby are nice, the rooms need some attention. People reported issues like poor air conditioning and heating units, tired bathrooms, thin walls, and chipped paint and wallpaper.

Unreliable Wi-Fi connection.

The complimentary Wi-Fi was said to be unreliable and slow at times. Travellers who require stable Internet may not be able to count on the hotel’s Wi-Fi connection for this.
