Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Today rooms are available for less than 100 Euro / night. But they charged us 286 Euro / night! ...why the f... ! Ok it is somehow our fault we booked the Hotel for this ridicoulus price .. but still it is a shame to treat guests like this and steal their money for almost nothing! The Hotel is absolute average, nothing special, very loud if you are the unlucky one with room roadside. Personal not very friendly, except the gay at breakfast room. He did best out of the miserable breakfast area. The rooms are old, small and sticky, bathroom equipped with old facilities. No own parking space available, they book you expensive valet parking somewhere, if no space available they let it to you on roadside. The location is ok, with 10min. walk distance from old town. To sum up .. for less 100 Euros absolute ok! However watch out room price!! ..vary far too much. Value not more than 100 Euro. We unfortunately had been ripped!!!!

Response from marco bertuzzi, Direttore generale at Hotel Liberty 1904
Responded 25 Jun 2022
Dear The Suisse, with regard to the comment about the staff, apart from the fact that there would be nothing wrong with that, there are no gays and such a remark it may seem discriminatory and insulting, so that we hope it was a typo on your part. The hotel rates are very clear on line, absolutely in line with Bologna offering, and changing according with the market; so, you chose to buy a room in our hotel, as well the product: how can you claim we steel? As far as parking is concerned, it is clearly indicated on Booking.com that we offer some bookable park places, for a fee of €15.00 per night. We regret that the room seem old, small and tacky to you: Liberty 1904 was refurbished in 2017; we accept your impression that fortunately is not shared by the majority of customers Reluctantly we agree that you were wrong by choosing our hotel, you should have rightly booked one more in line with your expectations. Kind regards. Marco Bertuzzi General Manager

The hotel has an okay value for money standard, staff is mostly helpful however the breakfast was a complete catastrophe! The breakfast is served from 7-10 am. We stayed two nights and first morning we arrived at the brekfast room at 9.15, the following morning at 9.20. The breakfast is advertised to include eggs, hams, cheese, bread etc and also sweet selections of foods. BUT at 9.15 am(!!!) there was almost NOTHING left! No eggs, no ham, literally two slices of one type of cheese and three slices of bread. There was no salty food to choose from, you only had the sweet variant like some cakes or croissants left. When I adressed the issue with the waiter he literally told me (no exaggeration here, these are his actual words) “We are finished!” and “you can have some bread!”in the rudest arrogant way possible and no one brought more any cheese or ham let alone eggs or sausages. Mind you it was 9.15!!! So I had one little croissant and ate properly elsewhere. The EXACT same thing happened the next morning. So apparantly breakfast means in this hotel that you only get it when you arrive at 7am because if you arrive 45 minutes before they close the breakfast room you can have coffee maybe some cakes or croissants...Or maybe it means that you can have breakfast you paid for as longe as other guests dont eat too much or too fast... I have never had this experience anywhere and the way staff approached this was offensive. Brekfast in this hotel is a joke, you should skip it and have it somewhere in some cute little café in the city. We booked the hotel because it was supposed to have a good breakfast according to ratings and reviews...totally ruined both of our mornings, every morning we left the hotel in a bad mood and I am for sure never returning to this place. On the positive note, apart from this breakfast fiasco, the staff was polite, spoke good English and were helpful (apart from the brekafast waiter), we had a minor problem with our toilet which was fixed immediately, so no complaint there. Bed are okay, street was not noisy. The location is average if you want to walk. It takes about 15 min to walk to the two towers, however that didnt bother us at all.

Response from Marco Bertuzzi, Altro at Hotel Liberty 1904
Responded 16 Mar 2022
Dear Mr. Dita, first we want to thank you for choosing us for your stay and for appreciating the staff. We are astonished for the breakfast service you received, as it is generally a strong point of our hotel, and we think it is a good standard for a three-star hotel. We checked with the breakfast staff, and we understand that the buffet was still well stocked at the time indicated. In any case, you could have immediately made this complaint to the reception staff, who would have immediately remedied the inconvenience immediately. Anyway, we have proceeded to report your perception of bad service and rudeness to the breakfast staff, to ensure that no misunderstandings would be repeated, and no more rude answers would be given to the guests. We would be very happy to have you as our guest next time, to have the possibility to change the bad impression you had, and make you have a pleasant stay starting right from breakfast. Marco Bertuzzi – Resident Manager

After arriving tired and stressed from the Italian highway, the concierge Carlos welcomed us and really took the extra time to answer all our questions and make us feel at home. He took the time to arrange a visit to a fantastic local restaurant. Please pay him double as to what he earns now!! I will be returning many times because of him. An excellent manager. Room excellent, breakfast great.

Lovely hotel, 24 hour reception so it was easy to check in. Wifi in rooms was great, strong enough to watch movies. Rooms were clean, nice bathrooms, good amount of space and excellent air con. Good location, 10/15 minute walk to the centre. It cost €20 in a taxi to get from the airport. Breakfast was lovely and the staff were very helpful and welcoming.

I chose this hotel for a 3-night-stay. The double room and the bathroom were both very clean. The location is also an advantage while it is located at a main road and in a distance of 20-30 meters there is a bus station to the city center. The quality and the variety of the breakfast were also very well.

Overall affordable and nice Hotel, very well located in Bologna with quick walking distance to the city centre, 10 minutes. The rooms are on the smaller side, but well cleaned and warm. Breakfast was good!! Reccomend for a trip to go with friends, they have rooms for 3 persons so its even more affordable.

We spent 4 days in this nice hotel and we loved it. Location is quite good, 15 minutes walking distance to Piaca Maggiore but negative side can be that it is on the main street and noise may be an issue. Hotel is well maintained, personnel highly proffesional, everything clean and having in mind quite affordable price that we got, our rating is 8.5. And yes, we would come back again.

We joined 2 x couples & booked our hotel on line. When we arrived before 12 noon they gave us a room with out making a fuss. The hotel is close to restaurants, super markets & walking distance to the old city. The breakfast is excellent & the service was always very good.

only issue, it is very far from the city if you are planning on walking to the center or the train station as i was (20 minute walk) but it is easly managed. Breakfast was great and included not only the continental options but also bacon, eggs, tomatos and mozzarella cheese. Would stay again.
