After finishing along work contract I decided to do a tour of Italy. I wanted cheap accommodation with no special amenities and this hotel fulfilled my needs. Easy to find, although a long walk from the station (my fault) the room and separate bathroom were what I needed. The bathroom was separate from the single room due to the building being very old - so no problem for me. Luckily, there was no 'street noise' to disturb me at night. Although cheap this was ideal for me. There were plenty of cafes, restaurants and pasticcceria locally to feed me amply.
I chose this hotel because of location close to my visit needs, understanding it is just for sleep. Stayed in a single room with external private bathroom. Room was small, quite clean but with old and unstable/broken furniture and sockets. The bathroom was not very dirty but I don’t know if it was cleaned after the previous visitor as a garbage basket was full, and no signs of sanitation visible. Heating was off in March when the heating season is not stopped yet. 5 degrees at night is quite cold outside. So there was possibility to stay only in bed under the blanket, at least thanks for the warm blanket. I had to quickly dress up after a shower not to be frizzed. 60 euro for such hotel stay is not fair. In the end, during my stay the hotel reported my credit card not valid to booking.com and cancelled my booking there. The credit card was charged 2 days in advance and I was given a receipt from the hotel. I suppose they don’t want real feedbacks on booking.com as there are only 10 scores now.…
We stayed here for 2 nights at the start of May 2019, we visited Bologna as part of our tour of Italy. We arrived by train to Bologna's central train station, it was about a 30 minute walk to the hotel (you could easily get a taxi but we were happy walking). We found the hotel quite easy, google maps helped us with this. On arrival the receptionist was really friendly and helpful. He provided us with a map and circled all the main points to visit. The reception is open 24/7 so someone is always around. They also had a small fridge at reception which had water and juice you could purchase at a cheap price. The room was fine for what we needed, a good size with a large wardrobe. The bathroom was pretty standard, quite a small shower but was fine for what we needed. The bed was comfy and plenty plugs to charge phones etc. It was very quiet although it is on a busy road, we didn't hear any traffic. The rooms do have a TV but only Italian channels which is to be expected, we used our laptop to watch Netflix after a busy and long day exploring the city!! They also have wifi which was really fast!! The hotel was about a 20 minute walk to the centre of Bologna which was a nice easy walk. There a few restaurants and bars on the road that the hotel is on so this is really handy. Its right opposite a nice pizza take away shop...the pizza slices were amazing here!!!! We got a really good price for this hotel and we were really happy with our stay here. Its great for a few nights stay and we would definitely be back if we ever visited Bologna again. Thank you…
I stayed at the Hotel Perla when I visited Bologna on business. It wasn’t my first choice, but that one was fully booked, so the Hotel Perla Hot my custom. It was clean and cosy, and the welcome was warm and friendly. Everyone was helpful and did everything to make my visit enjoyable. Unfortunately, the hotel does not serve breakfast, but there are plenty of cafes around the hotel where you can sit with the locals and enjoy breakfast. I find that more interesting than being secluded in the breakfast room of a hotel. One thing to note, the hotel has no ground floor and access to the hotel is gained by ascending a very steep stairway, and not suited to anyone with walking difficulties. The hotel is not very well signposted and it is very easy to miss the doorway. The owner told me that the building was the oldest on the street and dated back to the thirteen hundreds. I felt like telling him that I could tell it was. It was basic, and the furniture in my room was mainly from Ikea, and not to everyone’s taste but I was only there for a couple of days so it was okay. The hotel is approximately 10 - 15 minutes walk away from the Piazza Maggiore, which is the main square, and the surrounding streets house all the best restaurants, bars, and shops. The Piazza Maggiore and the surrounding streets also have building with wonderful architecture. Would I stay at the Hotel Perla? Probably not. I stayed there while visiting a trade show at Fiera District and, because hotels were packed, I paid approximately £125 per night. A bit expensive just for a very basic bedroom, really just a b&b, but without the breakfast. I stayed a further two nights at another far superior hotel for less, and it was more centrally located, and got I breakfast in the price too. …
It is situated in the touristic heart of bologna. walking distance from the attraction,the alleys around the hotel are full of coffee houses and restaurants. It is 2 kms from Bologna centrale. The front office staff is very helpful.
It was during a "fiera" and most of the hotels were fully booked. I was lucky to have a room and was welcomed. The room was very clean, the bathroom very nice and large. Price to high though for the place, but very good near the historic center.
I wanted somewhere to stay on my own that was cheap and well located and that was exactly what I found. Staff very helpful and friendly. Room was small but very clean and adequate. Street noise is high but with window closed can barely hear anything. Room is a little hot even with fan (stayed in June). Recommend to stay for somewhere cheap, clean and convenient.
I knew that I was going to sleep in a low quality place, but for one night I agreed it. However, the place was exceedingly dirty and my room was so stinky that I preferred to stay the whole night with open window, accepting coldness and noises from outside, instead of feeling nausea because of the stink. Old, creepy IKEA furniture and soil. Basic service in the rooms (very thin materass - however clean linen and towels- and extremely narrow bathroom), but the owner was nice and attentive. He also offered to help with transports connections and suggested a great place where to have dinner. Not suitable for people with reduced mobility: you have to climb a long stair in order to access the place! (of course no elevator).
This hotel was literally, average - nothing to be horrified about, nothing to be excited about. Wifi worked well, but the bed was so soft that if I slept too long on one side i had to hold on so i wouldn't slide off! I booked a single room with external bathroom and by Italian budget hotel standards, there was nothing to complain about. In fact the shower was quite good. My room didn't look like the pictures (I also didnt book a double room like in the pictures) but, to be fair, the bed, furniture and bedding were brand new from what I could tell. Kind of IKEAesque. All in all, Bologna is an expensive city when it comes to accommodation, and given I paid bottom end, I think this hotel is alright. As per my title, it served a purpose.
all ok . clean new internet wi fi center staff spoke engl french ,funny open 24 cheap
