              We really enjoy staying at this hotel the hotel is really new but ofcause bit far from the city centre it take about 20 mins by walk to get there but i think u could catch a bus which is just at the front of the hotel to the city centre if you just ask the staff the breakfast is the best.

Rooms were spacious, clean and classic style furniture. Bathroom very clean and user friendly. Wifi up to 500MB a day if extra devices were needed a extra voucher can be requested from the front desk free of charge. Location, opposite the central train station.

              We just stayed there for a night before taking a plane. Very conveniently located opposite to the train station, where a shuttle bus is available to go to the airport. The rooms are cleaned and sound proof, so no disturbance from the train station. Very friendly staff that speaks good English and is willing to help and provide useful information. One point to improve: the quality of the breakfast, which is just average.

              It’s a comfortable hotel of the kind conferences are held at: not artistic or pretty but spacious and comfortable without being luxourious. It’s within walking distance to the center of the town and all the historic places and within 100 yards of the train station as well as bus stop to and from the Bologna airport. Air conditioner, like other hotels in Italy, doesn’t cool below about 22 degrees Centigrade - a big bummer.

              The breakfast might not need to book if there's a conference held in the hotel ”

              I stayed in this hotel for 3 days. Most of things are really wonderful, as the clean and cozy room and wonderful location and polite receptionist. The breakfast was similar everyday and not too bad. Howerer, since there was a conference held in the hotel during my stay, the breakfast might be a disaster! Everyday in the morning when I got to restaruant, people lined up. However if there was a group of participant of the conference, they might ask the manager without checking everybody's room number and then go through the people who lined up. You might mixed in to the group and might not need to book breakfast and wait for the table.
