    Overall Great!

    Hotel's location is excellent! It is within walking distance to and from the center of the town and all the historic places. It is also within 100 yards of the train station as well as bus stop to and from the Bologna airport. The lobby is spacious and well furnished, so it gives a good first impression of the hotel the minute you enter. We had a clean and cozy room, with a comfortable bed and soft pillows. Only con is we wish the breakfast spread had more options and variety to it. Other than that there's nothing negative I can comment on the hotel.

    Great Hotel and Location

    The hotel is right by the main railway station making it an ideal base. The Airport bus stops outside and there is a very good taxi rank. In the area there are bars and restaurants. The main square, Piazza Maggiore is about 1 km away, with lots of bars, shops etc. on the way. We were on the 6th floor which meant taking the elevator. One thing I have noticed is that many hotels only have one small elevator and time is wasted waiting for a vacant elevator. This hotel has 3 and we never waited more than a few seconds. Our room overlooked the station, so my first concern was road noise. However the room was quiet as it had a double glazed window, a gap and then another double gazed window. The room was a good size and extremely comfortable. A small touch was that the person servicing the room left a sweet (or Candy if you are not English) in our room. Room was cleaned everyday and there was always a fresh supply of toiletries. This was usual buffet style with lots of choice of hot and cold food including cheese, ham, fresh fruit, bread and cakes. It seems to be the Italian way to have cake for breakfast. This is a good hotel in good location and I would certainly recommend.
