Clean rooms, good breakfast, very friendly staff. It's far from the city center (30 minutes of bus ride) so If you haven't car it could be difficult to get to hotel. But in the other hand: the great advantage is the parking - this is a great base for car trips around the area.

This was the only hotel (in entire Italy) that accepted my Smartbox and I'm very glad they did! The hotel is very nice and the staff very polite. Breakfast was good and the room was clean. The hotel is a bit far from the centre but the bus 25 stops right in front of it and public transport is efficient,...

We stayed at the Hotel Imperial for one night as a stop over whilst driving to southern Italy. After a long drive though the Alps we arrived at around 6pm tired and hungry only to be told that there was no dinner service available. The staff were apologetic and tried to direct us to a nearby restaurant but as the...

Room was very clean, comfortable and spacious. The breakfast was very good. Staff was lovely and helpful. Location was not too bad. Bus 25 stops just outside the gates. However we had a car and parking was free. I would return to Imperial Bologna for sure. We had a great time there. Thank you all.

Maybe is not the best location (6 km from center) but there is a bus stop right next to the hotel, with up to 4 rides every hour. The rooms are clean and quite modern, the breakfast is OK and the staff was very helpful.

We paid around thirty pounds per double room per night for our week at the start of October 2016 and didn't expect too much at such a low price which included breakfast. We couldn't have been more wrong and the hotel exceeded our expectations in every way. On arrival we were warmly welcomed by the receptionist who apologised that we...

Since we were driving, we chose this hotel, convenient to center of Bologna. The bus into town is a one minute walk from the Hotel. Room was clean, well set up. Staff was very pleasant and accommodating.

Due to a late decision of this travel, me and my coworker ended up at this hotel. Not a good experience unfortunately. Rooms are in bad shape, however clean, but bed is stiff (and I prefer a hard bed, but this is like sleeping on a rock!), sheets are not cozy at all, bathroom is old and my toilet didn't...
