    The location of the hotel is good. Easy to be accessed from the airport, train station, walking distance to the center.

    The hotel staff wasn't very friendly, the breakfast is poor, it was extreamly noisy during the night and early morning.

    The staff was very nice and pleasant. The breakfast was nice. They have a nice little patio area.

    The room is a little outdated and small. The location is not so good. You have to walk about 20 minutes to get to the center of town. There are not many places to eat/stores around the hotel. The hotel is located in more of a residential area than a tourist area. The have wifi, but you have to pay for it and it is a little pricey (2 euro an hour).

    Very good

    This hotel was absolutely perfect for what my friend and I were looking for, especially considering the price. We wanted somewhere cheap (we were travelling through Europe), comfortable, secure and as close to the city centre as possible, as we wanted to experience Bologna's night- life! For the price, we were very happy indeed - the location was good, only about a 10 minute walk from the University Quarter, where we went out in the evening; the room was spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable; check-in was quick and efficient; and breakfast was included in the price, which is a bonus these days, and although not fantastic, it did the job for two young travellers with little time who wanted to see as much of Bologna as possible. Would definitely recommend this hotel to other like-minded travellers who are looking for a little more luxury than a hostel! Also would recommend to people who want to stay in Bologna for a weekend and need somewhere comfortable and convenient, who aren't bothered about spending time in the hotel but still need somewhere nice to stay. And of course, would recommend to people wanting a night out in Bologna but do not want to pay a lot for a hotel right in the centre. If you don't want to walk to the hotel, there is a bus stop right outside. All in all, very happy indeed. Ps - when looking for the hotel, it is on the left hand side of the road, if the city walls of Bologna are behind you.

    The staff, although very quick and efficient, were not overly friendly! In a way, it felt like more of a motel/a place to stay for just a night or two, rather than for a relaxing experience (although this was fine for our needs). Breakfast wasn't great, but for the price it was good enough. We could see our passports behind the reception desk in full view for other people to see, which was a bit disconcerting. Also, both my friend and I were asked for our passports, which seemed unusual - in my experience of staying in hotels, only one member of the party is usually required to hand over their passport. Finally, when we left our baggage at the hotel after checking-out, there was no locked room to store it in - baggage was just left on a shelf next to the main entrance, so not very secure.

    The bed was fine, the bathroom was clean. The airconditioning worked well. The room was big enough. Good location.

    The breakfast was really bad, there wasn't anything fresh the first morning for us and the other 15 people that came in after us. We didn't get any shampoo at all, neither new shower gel the second day. We had to wait a long time before we could get in at night, with another couple, because the receptionist was out smoking somewhere. The hotel is a 1 star hotel and not a 2 star hotel as stated on Booked.net

    Fabulous

    Good location, only 15 minutes walking to the city center. Perfect air conditioner during the 40oC summer!!

    The smallest shower box ever!! And the bathroom is not small at all! Strange! My husband had to open the door to be able to have shower. Breakfast is a little boring, but it seems that is like that in Italy (at least in budget hotels).

    Fabulous

    Excellent value for money. Staff was really friendly and helpful. Rooms are not big but you get the space you need. It's seems the hotel has been recently renovated. Beds are quite confortable. We had a really pleasent stay. The center is easy to reach by bus and 20min walking. One regional train station is around 10min walking and it has conection to the central station.

    The breakfast can be improved with fruit and ham & cheese. But it is quite good enough to start the day.

    Good

    Quiet, nice rooms. Around 15 minutes to city center by walk. I found karpackie beer in fridge :). Few minutes walk to Plenty market.

    Breakfast was poor, only milk, jam, honey and sweet bread.

    I liked the staff, they were very helpful!!

    I didn't like that my room was underground (-1), but it had at least a yard and it wasn't so hard.

    Good

    The staff was friendly and they helped us with our daughter. The location is rather good for sightseeing.

    The photos at booking are different from the real life, our room was old and little with no place to put our baggage.
