Front desk staff always a joy to see. I am always made most welcome

I used to enjoy the restaurant in the hotel but it has been closed for years now, eating in the bar is not my prefered dining experience.....

Got a quiet room as requested. _Very_ close to the train station!

No complaints that I could think of! Maybe the internet could be included in the rate. And it is certainly expense for Italian measures.

Staff greated me by name, in English, when I walked in the door // very friendly staff // hotel was incredibly quiet // very clean, modern room with memory foam bed and nice pillows // window dressings completely blocked out light which greatly helped me avoid jet lag for the 7 hour time difference // bathroom was very clean and had plenty of towels // shower worked very well and the water was suitable to drink // complimentary breakfast was fantastic and delicious! // great price for a nice room directly across the street from Bologna Centrale train station.

All staff were very pleasant and attentive, from Reception to House keeping. All requests were dealt with very promply. The hotel is directly opposite the station which is very useful if you require connections to others cities. The hotel is also only approx 10-15mins walk to the central square. I would highly recommend this hotel.

The hotel is on a busy road opposite the station we fortunatley were in a room at the back of the hotel, but it may be that rooms at the front may be noisier.

Even if the hotel is just in front of the main train station, the rooms are very quiet and there is no noise
