Short stay in Bologna with wife and family and we reserved a room that would accommodate all of us. Great check in experience and room was very clean and comfortable. The staff accommodating and helpful. Location was a compromise as it was about half way between airport and the center of town. Fairly quiet area with some good local restaurants close by. Overall would recommend and stay here again.

Stayed for 5 nights in October 2022. Had an enjoyable stay. Very pleasant room with a small fridge, seat area and bed. Bathroom was ok, but some black mold in the shower area unfortunately (nothing serious and unlike popular belief nothing very harmful). Something I did not understand was the water heater which had a tiny electric plug and not able to put in electric plug. Friendly people at reception area and breakfast room as well. Some more English understanding in the latter would be pleasant. Only thing was that for fresh juice during breakfast they ask 4 euro....not something you should want as a nice hotel.

Beautiful clean hotel with nice rooms. Close to the bus station going to downtown, you can purchase the bus tickets right at the hotel counter. Very friendly people and Best Western team! I only missed a king size bed.

We stayed at this hotel from August 24 to August 28. Breakfast was good with a variety of choices. The room is comfortable but it is always much smaller compared to USA hotels rooms for a 4-star hotel. The shower is very small. We liked the best in the room is they have the electric kettle to boil the water for drinking or coffee on the morning. The walking distance from the hotel to Bologna Central train station is approximately 9 small blocks and took us 12 to 15 minutes since we have an elderly person in our group. Taxi from Bologna Airport to the hotel is $30 for 6 people with a mini-van ($18 for 3 people in a sedan). The office staffs are nice and always willing to help us (also they speak English fluently).

The accomodation is very nice, comfortable and well cleaned. The staff members are always kind and friendly. Breakfast is very good, they offer much variety and evertyhing is always fresh. The hotel is not so closed to the center region, but there is a bus stop right in front of it at which you can take a bus if you want (including the one to go to Piazza Maggiore), and it is a 20-minute walk to the train station. There are excellent restaurants around the hotel. Internet connection sometimes is not so good but it is possible to use.

Nice rooms, friendly staff and standard breakfast for being Italy. 10 min walk to the train station with porticos half of the way, and further 10 along the main shopping street to get to Piazza Maggiore. Can also take the bus which runs frequently near the hotel. Quiet area. Good size grocery shop a minute away. Free Wi-Fi, but didn’t work in the hotel room very well, only in the reception-area.

Nice hotel situated in outskirts of city. Large comfortable and very well equipped room with corner bath, though not a jacuzzi as advertised. Breakfast was good and staff were friendly. Excellent value for money. Hotel is about a 15 to 20 min walk from the Bologna Central Station and a several minutes more into city centre. Spent three nights here and visited Florence for a day by train. Very minor complaint would be the water wasted running taps for several minutes before hot water reached room. All in all a very nice stay and would happily return.

Room was spacious with very nice details. Bathroom was huge and one of the most comfortable I've ever seen. Not only is the bathroom big, but it had a full size tub with a special seat and the shower can be adjusted to allow showering while seated. I wish I had one like this at home! A great perk when you're a tourist that's been on your feet all day and even showering hurts. Location: it's not a prime location which means the attractions are not within walking distance, but it's easily accessible by bus 27 which is very frequent (either to the city center or to the main train station and the airport bus which departs from there). However, for me a great perk is the Pam supermarket a few steps away. It's a full size supermarket, very convenient. The breakfast buffet was very good, even for a vegetarian. They had fruit and the usual cucumbers and tomatoes, plus a great variety of delicious pastries.
