“Adequate 3-star hotel, convenient for train station”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

At first glance, Hotel Astoria has a gritty weathered look, not out of place in Bologna. It is an adequate 3-star hotel, 10 mins walk from the train station, & 20 mins walk to the central Piazza del Nettuna /Maggiore. The double room in the renovated wing at the back has an adequate double bed, wardrobe, desk, chair, luggage rack, safe, minibar, & a balcony for fresh air. The interior is dark, presumably as an escape from the summer heat & sunlight. A white bathrobe, towelled slippers & daily chocolates were provided - a rather nice touch. Daily room service. Breakfast was a basic continental buffet, with a small selection of bread, cheese, cold cuts, cake & fruit; & a choice of coffee or tea, ordered from the waitress. The location in a quiet neighborhood may be a bit too far from the centre for some, but is not too bad if you're on holiday & need to be near transport.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony in the renovated wing at the back

Book in here for 5 nights as most hotels were full due to a trade fair. It is OK, but no more than that.

Good points: the reception staff were helpful and the hotel perfectly clean. There was a minibar in the room, which is not always the case in this class of hotel.

Bad points: the furniture in my room was old fashioned and the bathroom very small. The food at the breakfast buffet was quite good, but the room too crowded and the service poor. There are better locations: both for accessing local transport and walking into the medieval centre.

The Hotel Astoria was a little too far out of centre for my taste. It's a very quiet neighbourhoud, but I would have preferred a shorter walk. Luckily the hotel had a bike that I could rent. The staff is very friendly, and breakfast is adequate, but the room smelled of cigarette smoke and the bathroom was very small. It was ok for a couple of nights, but if I had known I would have looked for something a little more in the city centre.

We ended up here because our B&B was a no show and the other recommended hotel was full. The carpet was filthy and smelled and the decor was dark and dreary. The bathroom was spotless, though. The staff was helpful, since our A/C didn't seem to work, we inquired and it needed to be turned on by them. Breakfast was nice. We were very close to the train station, which is what we wanted, but wished we had a Guida Rossa for other suggestions.
