This hotel is close to the train station. I arrived at 10pm and waited about 10 minutes to check-in (perhaps everyone came in on the same train?). My room was a good size with a window overlooking the piazza. Cleanliness was good although the walls were a bit thin (I could hear people talking in the room next door). The whole hotel (other than the lobby) needs a makeover. The wallpaper is peeling with scuff marks all over the walls and black mold was growing between the 1970's tiles.

This hotel is quite well furbished and the staff is helpful and attentive to any of our demands.
We were a group of 7 persons comming for business and all our expectations have been solved.

There is one details for has been the worst; on the hotel description from NH Hotels website it is written that each room is furbished with iron, well my surprise was that there is not on the room and when I requested on reception they told me that it is not possible because this kind of device is not allowed on hotel rooms in Italy,

Nevertheless we have to congratulate Francesca, one of the reception staff that has been very helpful and attentive to all our demands.

Location of the hotel was very good, walking distance to major attractions.

The rooms had differing qualities according to their types, deluxe rooms were the renovated ones on higher floors. We stayed in a junior suite which has a big comfotable bed and also separate small room with a sofa and tv. The room was not big, but ok. The bathroom was clean and nice as well. The price was 180Euros per night for junior suite, whereas it was much less during the weekends. Breakfast was included to the price and it was good.
Receptionists were helpful and kind.

This hotel has a great location opposite the train station, twenty minutes from the airport. You walk out of the hotel and turn right and head into Bologna town.
The hotel reception is a very modern bright welcoming area, the staff are very friendly and helpful with maps directions, coffee. It's just that when you get to your room it is very disappointing. The rooms don't reflect the reception area you arrived in. If you want a nicer newer rooms, it's an extra 25-30 euros, I have stayed in other NH hotels so thought I knew what I was getting. I know its somewhere you just lay your head but I want to lay my head in comfortable surroundings. There are somegreat restaurants out of the hotel, with great Italian food and great prices. You can just wander in bologna or use it as a base to get to other towns.
(I stay at this hotel at least once a month)

The Plus:
Excellent staff, nice lobby, good restaurant

The Minus
Rooms are average 3 star with old TV and older carpet. If you pay an upgrade you get a nice NH standard room like in a 4 star Hotel, but wait...isn't it already a 4 star Hotel?

The concierge will try to upgrade you (for 30€/day) to what you should already have.

The Verdict:

for this price, I've seen better. It's OK, but not for its price

Room Tip: Ask only for 4th floor room (the new ones)
