Positive Reviews

Top-Notch Facilities and Rooms.

The rooms of the hotel are said to be very spacious and clean for the most part. The bathroom is also grand and the facilities like air-conditioning. Rooms and bathroom are also fully-equipped with mini-bar and brewing machines. Guests found this cleanliness to be equal to a highly-rated hotel.

Great Location in Central Bologna.

Most guests truly enjoyed the central location that the hotel is set in: it is a close stroll to the main public transportation hubs of the city as well as the area’s historical city centre. It is also close to the main shopping and entertainment streets the city has to offer, so guests did not find themselves with a lack of things to do.

Well-Insulated Walls and Windows.

Some guests noticed that the hotel was well-equipped with good quality insulation as they did not hear any outside noise coming from the traffic of a busy road. The hotel is also near the central railway station but there was not many noise complaints.

Negative Reviews

Unfriendly and Unwelcoming Staff.

Some guests complained their stay was made unmemorable due to the staff’s lack of care for their guests.

Wi-Fi for a Fee or Too Slow.

The internet access from the hotel is for a fee that many guests found to be too much to forget. Each separate device that used internet is charged a separate fee. For those guests who chose to use the free internet, the connection was too slow to be of any help.

Hotel Needs Renovation.

The hotel is described by some guests to be from the 1980s in its interior design and overall look. The couch and carpet had stains or were torn. Some rooms are said to smell of smoke and had an overall unattractive and non-modern look. The hotel is not said to be modern and contemporary or extremely clean.
