I stayed for two nights at the hotel. I stayed in a family room for 5 people. At first I was suprised by the old fashioned style of the hotel. The room was clean and spacious. But in the hotel they should remove the dust more.. The breakfast is great. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is a...

Rooms are cramped, dull and musty, they do not look to have been updated since the early 70's. The Hotel bar carries a poor selection, the beer dispensing machine (not a beer tap) was always broken. Breakfast looked so terrible we decided to leave before eating anything, needless to say, did not try supper in the 'cordon bleu' restaurant! We...

This hotel is within walking distance of the main attractions of Bologna, also has busses that pass by. It has a friendly staff and comfortable rooms but not the best restaurant but don't let that stop you from staying here.

Terrible service, horrid rooms. Cracked walls and bugs in the rooms. Dubious man affiliated with the hotel came to open the windows in my room without warning or explanation. Absurd "no water" service at the restaurant. No outside food or drinks allowed despite a terrifyingly poor restaurant with limited hours (this policy is reinforced on every room, elevator, and hotel...

If you are the kind of person that needs to go to the toilet from time to time, this hotel is not for you. This was by far the worst hotel experience of my life. I received a room with a broken toilet, requested to receive a different room, was denied and promised the toilet would be fixed. Nothing was...

A real find and fantastic value. Art Deco old world charm in the lobby and restaurant. Rooms are a great size and comfy. I also used the gym which had a good selection of cardio equipment. Dinner was excellent value for money.

Hotel decor generally is slightly outdated but it works! The room was a very good size and we loved our stay there. The staff on the front desk were very happy to help and solved any problems we had. Only slight issue was with one of the breakfast women, who asked us for our room number. This would have been...

The hotel is really authentic, interior is from 1970s, but beds and mattresses are new and comfortable. The staff is super nice and helpful. Breakfast was good. We've paid 3€ for couple as a city tax.
