I booked this hotel thinking that it was close to the central part of Bologna. However, it is about a 25 min walk from the tourist centre and about 15 mins to the rail station. It is in a fairly undeveloped area and as a woman travelling by herself, I was a little nervous walking to and from there. The...

The AC is a decent budget hotel, a little out of town (wrong side of the train station) in an underdevelopped area. The hotel is however relative new, clean, with good wifi and ok breakfast. The rooms at the front are a little noisy though, due to traffic.

In all my 50 years at staying in hotels this was by some way the worst experience I have ever had. That includes a very cheap and unpleasant back-packers hotel in Paros, Greece. If you do nothing else, NEVER STAY HERE in such a badly managed hotel with wallpaper falling off the walls, graffiti everywhere outside and gangs roaming around,...

I visited this hotel on business. It is very close to the train station. The room was clean and tidy but the heating did not work so it was cold. The breakfast was good and the staff were all very well mannered. Nice and perfectly good for a business trip but not for a special night away

We stayed here for one night, the hotel is nice and the room pretty large. However we found some details that are needing attention like the wall paper that is falling off.
