Nice rooms, friendly staff and standard breakfast for being Italy. 10 min walk to the train station with porticos half of the way, and further 10 along the main shopping street to get to Piazza Maggiore. Can also take the bus which runs frequently near the hotel. Quiet area. Good size grocery shop a minute away. Free Wi-Fi, but didn’t work in the hotel room very well, only in the reception-area.

Nice hotel situated in outskirts of city. Large comfortable and very well equipped room with corner bath, though not a jacuzzi as advertised. Breakfast was good and staff were friendly. Excellent value for money. Hotel is about a 15 to 20 min walk from the Bologna Central Station and a several minutes more into city centre. Spent three nights here and visited Florence for a day by train. Very minor complaint would be the water wasted running taps for several minutes before hot water reached room. All in all a very nice stay and would happily return.

Room was spacious with very nice details. Bathroom was huge and one of the most comfortable I've ever seen. Not only is the bathroom big, but it had a full size tub with a special seat and the shower can be adjusted to allow showering while seated. I wish I had one like this at home! A great perk when you're a tourist that's been on your feet all day and even showering hurts. Location: it's not a prime location which means the attractions are not within walking distance, but it's easily accessible by bus 27 which is very frequent (either to the city center or to the main train station and the airport bus which departs from there). However, for me a great perk is the Pam supermarket a few steps away. It's a full size supermarket, very convenient. The breakfast buffet was very good, even for a vegetarian. They had fruit and the usual cucumbers and tomatoes, plus a great variety of delicious pastries.

Staff very friendly and willing to assist however they could. Hotel a little run down but for the price it did just the job. My only criticism was my room had no hot water. I had to be up really early so had to time to complain, but skipping a shower before a flight is not fun!

Another great stay in a Best Western. Staff very professional and very much ensured we had a problem-free stay. Room great, king bed with all you need for a short stay. Yes it’s a bit out of Bologna Centro but a lovely walk in to the city for dinner. Ample and easy parking so great if you are doing a road trip.
