Old, old so old that I feel like use a time machine, it frozen somewhere in 70th. Even looks like a museum of hotels. I had a terrible 2 bad room without any window, I felt like in jail. I wonder is someone stay here??? The only positive point - stuff is very friendly.

As most of the others said, the hotel needs a good refurbishment, everything reminds me of old times. Luckily, most of the employees are very kind and won't hesitate to help if needed. As for the WiFi, it's my second trip and this time it worked in my room but only after a few minutes of network tweaking. For the...

I agree with other reviews: staff is (mostly) very friendly, especially Sonia and MaryLuz. The evening guy has no clue. As Taxis need to be reserved because there are almost no taxis around, we double-booked because he oversaw a notice made by Sonia that a taxi had already been booked. He also forgot to invoice us for a room which...

Had gone to Cento for Business Travel. The room was quite comfortable, but had to struggle a lot with the lock. Had a good view of the farms from the room. Staff was courtieous, especially the South-Asian receptionist. The breakfast was very good.. wifi was free and quite good..

The hotel is perfectly acceptable for the location. As pieve di cento is mostly a farm community about 25 minutes outside of Bologna. for the price the hotel is perfect. The Wi-Fi signal is only available in the lobby of the hotel. I was NEVER able to access it from my room or the restaurant (I was there for 10...

Start was not that good when the receptionist stated that wifi is not working when I came to the hotel close to midnight. When I went to the room, it was hot which was not a problem because all I had to do is open the door at the balcony. It was clean and breakfast was better than average. Slightly...

A long weekend staying at this hotel - its very clean although the room facilities are very basic in generally. Soap, shampoo, conditioner and tower were supplied. A bit far from the city centre so a car required to get around. Didn't have a view and its only a shower room for a single person. It was sufficient for the...

No way a 4 stars hotel, with a small and dismal room, an uncomfortable bed, a dirty bathroom falling apart, no internet at all in my room, awful breakfast (everyhting stale).
