An old style motoring hotel from the days of porters and martini cocktails. Clearly seen better days but it was comfortable and spacious and although dated, everything worked. The staff were courteous and the garage arrangements superb for us with a lift into the hotel from the basement garage. We has a valuable car load we needed secure. We were...

Driving south through Europe and staying at ibis budget hotels it was a pleasant change to find this hotel not only was it cheaper it was 100% better.The room on the seventh floor was large and comfortable with a walkin wardrobe and large bathroom.The restaurant and bar is well appointed and very reasonably priced.Would not hesitate to stay here again

The hotel itself is a bit dated, but I was fully appreciative of the customer service I received. I lost my room card and they replaced it with no fuss. Breakfast was tasty, and had all the necessary items that made it acceptable. The food was great, but all eggs and bacon were served cold. The afternoon and evening meals...

This is far from a 4 star hotel. Rooms are basic, dated and depressing, the hotel is in desperate need of a refurbishment. On the positive side it was clean. Customer service also disappointing. I would rate this hotel as 2*.

I thought it was pretty cool (retro) to be in this time machine. The hotel was well maintained, but it was dated - is that a bad thing? I thought it made the stay interesting. I did not walk to locations in downtown, took a cab. We had drinks at the bar when we arrived (we were only ones there)....

I stayed for two nights at the hotel. I stayed in a family room for 5 people. At first I was suprised by the old fashioned style of the hotel. The room was clean and spacious. But in the hotel they should remove the dust more.. The breakfast is great. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is a...

Rooms are cramped, dull and musty, they do not look to have been updated since the early 70's. The Hotel bar carries a poor selection, the beer dispensing machine (not a beer tap) was always broken. Breakfast looked so terrible we decided to leave before eating anything, needless to say, did not try supper in the 'cordon bleu' restaurant! We...

This hotel is within walking distance of the main attractions of Bologna, also has busses that pass by. It has a friendly staff and comfortable rooms but not the best restaurant but don't let that stop you from staying here.
