    the shower

    I could not understand why this is a 5 star hotel. There were no amenities, not even a bottle of water. Most 5 or lower star hotels cater to the guests. Since this is not high tourist time, the Hotel was very uncrowded yet all the guests were located in the same area. There was a stain on the rug in the bedroom, no turn down service, 2 little pieces of chocolate and a handful of hard candy were in the room. It was a no smoking room but smelled like smoke and very musty. The breakfast was plentiful but no hot foods available and I was served a coffee cup that had been used. The restaurant was way over priced as well as the internet charge, and the wellness center charge. Usually a 5 star grants it's guests entry to the spa and/or free wi-fi. I felt mislead by the wording of the hotel. Even the lower charge was not worth the money.

    Desig, fresh and clean. Good breakfast. Nice lobby. Good location. very close to train station, true walking distance to the centre.

    Internet at extra charge, and expensive. No promissed slippers. printer did not work (though the recepcionist printed it out for us).

    So nice hotel should have restaurant for dinner tonight.

  • Group of friends

    The hotel was in walking distance of the train station and shops on the main avenue, which was very convenient. The breakfast included with the reservation of the room was lovely and had food appropriate for the weight conscious or not. We would definitely book here again.

    Close to the train station

    The mini-refrigerator is wired electronicly, you will be charged if you touch anything inside. And it is fully packed. There is a big flat panel tv but there is no free tv. If you want to watch tv, you need to use their skytv channel, which costs 8--10 Euros per day. So this is a 4- star hotel without refrigerator space and without tv. The hotel staffs are not very helpful. When we ask "how do we get to some places?" Their answers are always "Take a taxi."

    the welcome with the fruitbasket and the proseco .. was a real surprise and very welcome after a long day of traveling

    . Althought this is a nice hotel from the furniture and facility point of view i definitely do not recommend this place. Bologna is full of similar degree hotel with a pleasant service.

    I came to the Hotel a day after a fair was closed. The hotel was almost empty. nevertheless i was assigned a room at the far end of a very long corridor. It was changed only after my protest. There is no free of charge Wi Fi at this hotel unlike a same category hotel I stayed in few days before at the same city. The Lobby would not serve what is written in the menu and demanded that i will go to their expensive and empty restaurant. Naturally I had a lovely dinner at a restaurant nearby

    Very good venue for the conference, and easy access to the town centre.

    Had an issue with the bar staff, where I was accussed of not paying for beer, when I had already paid. There was confusion due to the change of staff, and no record was left to say that I had already paid. Finally I was able to show the receipt indicating that I had already paid, and the bar staff apologised for their mistake. Lucky I kept the receipt!

    The gym is one of the best in Italy. A very pleasant surprise, if you like to workout. Also, the underground parking lot is excellent.

    The low hanging hallway lights. Also, if you plan to leave before 6:00 a.m., you need to let the staff know because the garage closes and you cannot get to your car.

  • Group of friends

    I liked everything about this hotel. The staff were fantastic and the hotel is very well maintained. The furnishings, decor etc lovely. Breakfast is included which was also excellent.

  • Older travelers

    We liked the fact that it was not so far from the city center and the spacious lobby and rooms

    Wifi and steam bath are not for free

  • Couple

    Typical conference hotel. effective and still friendly staff. Large entrance and common areas. And the room was nice and tidy with a balcony. Breakfastroom was large and somewhat business-like. But selection for breakfast was good including both cerals an pasteries.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    A spacious and cleanliness of the room is worth the value. The hotel is located in a very quiet area even close to the station, just five min. To walk.

    A bartender, a bold one, has an attitude. When I asked how to get the breakfast room, he shouted me back. I didn’t waste my time to deal with him so I just write here as a reminder.

  • Older travelers

    The friendly staff always ready to go the extra mile. The extremely comfortable and luxurious suite. It is also very near everything one wants to see and there are several very good restaurants within walking distance.
