The staff here is very friendly, we came to Bologna to pick out an engagement ring and she recommended some local jewelers. This used to be a family home and then they turned it into a hotel. So it definitely has that homey and cozy feeling to it. Our room had nice views of the City and you can also see the two Towers which are right down the street from the hotel. You do have to share a bathroom with other guests, but there are two bathrooms (not many bedrooms total) - and I never had to wait to use the bathroom.
Unbeatable location. Exceptionally clean and family run. The family are very friendly and kind. Spoke great English except for the mother however she was absolutely lovely and our poor Italian got us by. The rooms were extremely spacious and equipped with a sink in the corner. Wifi was fast and reliable. Bathrooms were very clean and spacious. the breakfast was outstanding! Cereal, fruit, yoghurt, juice, pastry, toast and condiments galore. Plus every morning we were made a proper coffee of choice on a proper machine. Great espresso and cappuccino! We absolutely loved our stay and will definitely return. It's a bit of a stair climb but there is a lift. We chose the stairs to make way for more gelati and pizza and vino, all of which is in abundance surrounding this location.
the owners were very friendly and helpful, the location is fantastic, the bathroom was spotless and the shower was very powerful seems a shame the guests can't use the lift.
super cute, helpful, smack center
too much noise from the street
Comfortable room (Executive room) Noise from the street; high price because the hotel is close to the Bologna Fair centre; not suited for people who just want to visit the city
The quality of food and the service of staff Old building
I was a very bad experience
Availability of rooms The detergent using on the bedding was not hypoalegentic and caused both my wife and I to cover with closing to not touch it as it caused us to itch. The sundries were missing. The desk was small and not usable as it was integrated with the window sill. The staff was nice.
everything, hotel, staff, service, food, location.
Price. Airco didn't work Location - the hotel is in an industrial area.
excellent breakfast; rather bland but very decent rooms high time to start offering free wireless internet like any other motel; tv too much geared towards pay TV whereas offer of free channels small and of poor quality
Clean, comfortable and affordable rooms. Ideal as a starting point for visiting places and cities in the region. Hotel is located in a company and logistics area at 8 km from the city center. A car is crucial.
Good location close to the city. Good breakfast, a lot of choice, a lot of fruit juices and pastry. Good acoustic isolation of the rooms. Sunday dinner menu at hotel restaurant did not match Italian standards.
excellent hotel too far away from the downtown, and no convenient transportation
Good staff no transport service to and from hotel to any were , except by called taxi , which make it very expensive , if you dont have your car
Peaceful and quality rest, only a little noise from the vicinity of the highway. No
Modern, clean, comfortable hotel close to the highway, a short drive away from Bologna center. A good budget option for those travelling by car, as the center can be very expensive when there is a fair.
Only the price. The room was very hot (and smelly), even though the temperature outside was 15 C, and we couldnt open the window because of the smell outside.
Is a fair hotel if you are visiting Center Gross for work!
A friendly and helpful welcome, the room was very clean and spacious with adequate facilities. Immediate access to city centre and student area location was not a problem. This is a b&b not a hotel. Parking is a problem. Sat-nav use Via de' Castagnoli, not Largo Respighi.
We were made to feel very welcome at Casa llaria. Location was great - right in amongst the exciting student area of Bologna - a beautiful and not too touristy city. A great sense of the medieval in Bologna. We could have done with some advice about good places to eat, as we looked around the back streets for a long time before finding a few restaurants as opposed to cafes. A list of suggested restaurants, a simple map showing location would be a great advantage.
Staff were excellent. Mother could not speak english but we got by - sooo helpful. Daughter in law spoke english well so easier. Really lovely people. Out in the sticks, tho, with fields across the road. Taxi to get to it but once there easy to get into town on buses - 10 minute walk from bus stop to bear in mind.
very friendly staff, clean, fonctional the hotel is hardly reachable without a car or taxi, being far away from downtown in a northern non touristic zone with no shops of any kind, and hardly anything around; it can therefore be recommended only to people who will be ok to take the car (and the parking problems downtown) each time they want to do sthg 6/10
The hotel is in a nice peaceful area, not too far outside of Bologna, making it fairly easy to use local transport to get around. The room was just what we needed & the beds were very comfortable, and the facilities in the room were good too.
Hotel had a parking place. Very friendly staff, good recommendations from the staff - where to park the car in the city and where is shoping center and food store. Clean rooms, quiet environment.
The Hotel is close to the airport, it's 10 min by taxi. The staff was very helpful. The breakfast was very good. The hotel is a comfortable and warm. I will recomend it.
size of room of hotel and interior , the stuff is also very good
Location, staff Breakfast was average
staff always helpful not enough sockets in the room; fitness facility was tiny, with hardwood floors
the receptionist was extremely helpful in picking out good restaurants for us. the breakfast could have been better. I find the breakfast to be below average with choices being very limited.
Lobby and restaurant were lovely and updated, unfortunately that's not where you actually stay. Rooms were terribly outdated and dirty with stained carpets that goes half way up the wall... nothing like the lobby. Staff is rude. Would never stay here again.
Facilities are kept in excellent conditions. Extremely helpful staff. They even helped me fix a problem with my camera.
I stayed at this hotel with my husband for 7 nights. We originally booked a deluxe rm & on arrival the hotel upgraded us to an executive suite which we appreciated. It was lovely & very comfortable. The location is excellent, straight across from the train station. Noise was not an issue. Hotel well insultated from outside noise. The downside was breakfast could have been more varied. Various items ran low eg croissants/bread, there was a slowness to refill these items. Basically,iit wasn't topped up. The threadmill in the gym was not working & was not repaired even though we inquired. Hotel very expensive, 2 drinks cost €14. The hotel is way overpriced for the services provided. Would have to re-think if I would stay there again
included breakfast, location, staff was very helpful for taxi and wakeup and called airlines for me nothing
There was a theft in my room during the stay, someone had unauthorised access despite the electronic key cards. Although the front desk staff was supportive, It was a rather bad expereince due to the theft.
nice size room; free health club facilities (small but adequate) location of hotel near the train station was convenient for day trips out of Bologna; but the area was seedy, particularly at night
The room atmosphere
Close to the motorway. good hotel opened in September 2006 very new. Pay wi-fi
The service was great, and the coffee before our trip to the airport was delicious and most welcome! The shower converter button in our room did not work properly.
As I said earlier my visit was very short to comment only that the mattress was too soft, but this may be a matter of choice. n/a
The hotel is only three years old. It is in perfect shape and everything looks brand new. Quality of everything is high. Breakfast was but not as excellent as the rest of the hotel
Leaving the hotel You have to get a taxi from this hotel where ever your going, unless your trip involves walking through fields or along a busy road. It costs €20 to get into Bologna. They had no restaurant or room service food. No suggested alternatives were given to us. The only place near the hotel we found to eat in was about a 5/10 min walk but involved crossing over a very busy main road, which was very dangerous. A service of alcohol was available in the room which they served a continental breakfast, so not very intensing. Upon requesting an iron to the room I was informed they did not offer this service because of the wood in the room!!! however they had an iron service from 8am, which was no good to me for that evening and no good to me for the next day because of it being a business trip, I was leaving at 8am every morning. No English channels at all on TV. They had no information on the hotel or area information in room. Communication on all levels was very poor.
It is very central for my business and is effiecient The food could be better
Location to Centergross
the food in the restaurant although it is better than it has been......the restaurant staff are generally very helpful and pleasant
dobola sem vse kar sem potrebovala, res lepo
Easy place to stay. Good restaurant. Good parking. Good location for the airport, city and auto routes. The hotel's wifi speed was too slow.
The fact that is in a very good location and covers all my needs (business) safety of the packages or other that their clients have with them
Big Room and breakfast. They did not return the passport when check-out so we had to return from the way to the ariport.
When II arrived they could not trace my reservation eventhough I gave them the confirmation number of the booking. They still needed the hard copy (I forgot to take it with me) It was sent twice by eimail and fax.
I brought along my booking.com document to check in but the staffs have no information on my booking. I have add two more days for double room but also they have no information. The feeling is their working procedure and attitude is not professional. Their wi-fi is extremely poor. We have to pay for no connection wifi. During my 4 days stay, I couldn't get on wi fi in my room and same as the other guest I have met in the lobby. Even down in lobby is poor reception too. This is very frustrated for business trip especially wifi is very important for business communication.
Air condition in the room was in this heat very comfortable. Breakfast was rich.
Provided a good stop off en-route. Parking security could be improved by closing the gates at night. Entrance to park over pavement very steep, car grounded. Not a great offering for breakfast.
The room has a loft and my kids love it. Clean and spacious. Free parking. But it is far from the city center. The restaurant was closed and had to drive to eat dinner.
convenience with bus service to Bologna centre ,good parking in hotel,very good coffee machine with breakfast and pleasant staff
Great familyroom!! Free parking. Bus-stop to city in front of the hotel. Breakfast quite good. Air-condition. Good hotel for one night.
Easy accessible bus to city center, relatively good food assortment for breakfast, clean and pleasant rooms, kind staff, free parking Too cold rooms (January!)
Excellent room, friendly and helpful staff.
Fully average. Except the Philippines receptionist, who was very friendly and helpful. The family rooms leaves something to be desired: there are one or three beds on the gallery, which is a family of two children is not necessarily an ideal. Running for breakfast, because the ham and the bread runs out quickly, and the waiter just smiles, but not to take more. :(
we have not time for enyoj, because we must work in Centrogross.
The decor, and the cleanliness of the hotel. The excessively overpriced hotel restaurant, with the bill being purely at the discretion of the owner.
The location could not be better as far as Bologna is concerned. The staff at the front desk were very good and had better English that I had Italian, so that was a big plus. I recommend if location is what you are looking for. I walked to and from Bologna Central no problem. The room was very small but since I was only looking for a bed I cannot really complain. I was on business so €65 was a little steep for what I was getting. Breakfast was not great but hey...You're in Italy!!! They don't do Breakfast! If they knocked €15 off the price and left out the 'prima colazione' I would have no problem with that.
Courtesy of staff. Excellent location. Good breakfast. Room furnishing dreary.
it was good for me, central,close to the places where I had to be hm... I realy don't like the small bathroom...but I managed it:))
conveniently located, has free internet in the rooms (wireless & cable), which is (unfortunately) unusual among Italian hotels. Very helpful and cheerful staff. Rooms are a little worn out.
Location is great. Staff were very friendly Free WiFi Internet reception in the room was very poor, only worked intermittently; breakfast was very simple but decent
Good location. Air-conditioning working properly. No major complaints. One afternoon I returned to room and found my cardkey did not work to open door. The front desk immediately replaced the key when I took it to them, but I never learned if it was a random failure of the card, or if the access code was intentionally changed for some reason.
This hotel is on a main street within minutes of the Piazza Maggiore, the shopping centre, and many restaurants, pizzerias and trattorias. The stay in the hotel included a buffet breakfast which was excellent. All of the staff were non-intrusive and we were allowed to wander about as we wished.
Breakfast was well done.
The hotel is located 7 walking minutes to the train station, and is just on the edge of all the central activity. We had a junior suite and it was a good size room with a large bathroom. The breakfast is good with ample variety of choices. The breakfast room staff is very attentive. The bathroom had a large tub, jacuzzi size, but you had to climb in and out of a good size tub edge to use the shower. There is no curtain or door to the shower. I saw in other reviews on Booking.Com complaints about poor air-conditioning. I discounted these complaints because we would be there in late October. I should have paid attention. The room was quite hot and could not be satisfactorally adjusted. We had to constantly open the windows, hoping no birds would fly in. The breakfast area was also quite hot Also, the lighting in the room is quite dim, even though there are many lamps. The light bulbs are for mood, not for reading. A light in the closet area burned out and it took two days and two requests before it was replaced.
location + all above
Hotel is in really nice, has great position, room was good size, my partner appreciated big plasma TV ;-) We were late for breakfast in the first morning, but waiter was really nice and served us.
Very polite personnel, very privilege location and very clean. No any business centre like internet access, computers, printers. Also not a big lobby to sit down for a coffee or chat.
Location. Helpful staff. Immaculate bedrooms and public areas.
Location, My room was too noisey (115)
Centralissimo, camera spaziosa e pulita, ottima colazione. Very central position, spaceful room, good breakfast.
Well maintained, clean spacey rooms for a good price. Near the highway, Guarded parkingplace. The area of the hotel is not welcoming. Some prostitutes at the opposite of the road trying to get a lift. Not dangerous or creepy bij the way. The restaurant attached at the hotel lacks quality and asks high prices,
Quiet inside despite the proximity to the highway, kind staff, good room maintenance.
200 Euros for such an Hotel is an abuse
The drive to it from the motorway. It was a route for, how can I put it politely, girls selling themselves and very nearly put me off staying, however the hotel was excellent and they looked after you car in the car park.
Good service in general, excellent location
Helpful and knowledgeable staff at the desk. The closeness to the centre of the City. A street full of family, local resteurants close by. small size of bedroom
there is no one single thing nice about this hotel dont go there
The hotel is very clean and bright. The noise from the street.
near city center, nice staff
The staff was very accomodating and responsive. The apartment was very clean and secure with all the required facilities. Ample amount of towels were provided and changed daily.The rooms were also cleaned daily The only problem we faced that we had to go to the hotel for breakfast however we knew about this before hand so no complaints ! However if breakfast time is increased for people staying at apartments (say till 10:30 AM) then it would be great !
The location was very close to the city centre. The apartment was cleaned every day. We had a very pleasant stay. As in most hotels we stayed in Italy, the breakfast was ok, but nothing more. As our apartment was part of a larger building where Italians live, the mornings (6-7AM) can be quite loud.
The breakfast was very good and the room was comfortable. The woman in the reception was very kind but the man dared to answer questions and was not that much informative. The A/C was controlled centrally and was off in the morning.
lovely little apartment 10 min walk from main square of bologna. really easy to get to from the station and lovely little veranda area
big appartments poor kitchen, not very clean
very well located, very friendly and helpful staff, comfortable small apartment no wifi in the apartment... internet access is important to me no microwave in kitchenette television only received limited selection of broadcast channels-- basic cable or sky satellite would not cost the hotel much and would be especially nice for non-Italian visitors
Nice spacious and bright room. Nice modern and large bathroom. Delicious breakfast buffet. Would have been nice to know duvet blankets were available as we did not know.
We stayed in Appartamenti building number 1 which is so very close to the centre it couldn't have been better. Large room, large bathroom along with an outdoor area for guests use. The price we paid and what we got it couldn't be better. (make sure you go to parent hotel for brekky as fresh juice and "real" coffee) Having found parent hotel Astoria Hotel we had to then trudge to appartamenti which just happens to be closer to the rail station than the hotel! Very minor but very frustrating on a hot day and after long train journey
The appartment was big and clean. The breakfast was also good. The noisy street where the appartment is locating.
Clean, warm apartment in a quiet area. Modern, simply furnished apartment, very comfortable. Very wide, comfortable bed, attractive modern bathroom with excellent shower. 200 meters from the top end of Via Independenzia and 350 meters from railway station. Handy for the airport coach. Good, plentyful breakfasts in main hotel 150 meters from apartment between 7-9.30. Cafes and shops nearby. The only drawback was that the built in cooker did not heat water to boiling so we were not able to make teas of coffees as planned.
easy to go to shopping way of checkout
Great location. Breakfast good but evening restaurant mediocer
Location, cleanliness Wireless internet isn't free in rooms.
Excellent breakfast with many choices. Cleanliness. Convenience to train station. View over square. Internet and TV/movies should be free of extra charge
location is convenient, staff very helpful, breakfast was very good above the lobby, hallways and rooms are in need of updates - dingy and old carpets and light fixtures.
The staff was friendly and courteous. The rooms were immaculate, the breakfast buffet was excellent. The bed and room ammenties were great. The hotel is convient to both the train station and some major sites. No, we were very happy with our stay
close to rail station
We stayed in Bologna only to use it as a base for traveling via train to another smaller town. It was very convenient to the train station - just a short walk across the street/around the corner. While pleasant, the front desk staff were not very helpful. We stayed on a Sunday night, and upon returning from our day trip, we requested a recommendation for a local hotel. We were told "It's Sunday, you'll just have to walk this way (with an arrow on a map) and see if anything is open." While we understand that many restaurants are not open on Sunday, it would be useful for the front desk to be able to provide at least one recommendation and directions for those of us not familiar with the area. In particular this would have been helpful, as the menu at the restaurant offered very limited (something like four) options, and indicated that many were "made with frozen ingredients."
Being a female on my own I felt very safe and restaurant was very good.
Close to station and good breakfast. Good value for late booking
All ok! No
Good breakfast buffet, comfortable beds, great shower The room was much too hot (as was the corridor outside) and it was difficult to alter the temperature/airconditioning settings without instructions.
yes just one thing the airconditiong wasn't working.
air conditionig not working properly. I could not drop down the temperature from 25 degree. TV not working. I had to wait half an hour for the bill. Computers out of order bill made by hand
Clean and convenient to the airport and as advertised. no surprises. None
Friendly staff and modern rooms Hotel recently opened, should be good when everything works!
Neu and good Organised Free Internet and free car Parking Entrance is a little bit smaller
good staff, tidy,clean,easy to find,near to mc donalds,nice location..etc free internet breakfast could be better, all other is ok.
Das Hotel war insgesamt sehr gut, es gab nichts auszusetzen. Die Entfernung zum Zentrum war nicht richtig angegeben. Trotz guter Busanbindung, haben wir 20 min. benötigt, um ins Zentrum zu kommen. Vom Flughafen gibt es nicht nur den Aerobus (6,-€ pro Person), sondern auch die Linie 54 (1,30 € pro Person) die in die Nähe des Hotels fuhr. Ausstieg Chinta, anschließend noch ca. 8 Gehminuten.
Nice modern hotel. Only McDonald's and one other dinner restaurant within walking distance. Close to the airport and 5 miles from downtown. Location of other ammenties.
close to the highway and easy to reach, the king size bed as well as breakfast were great Unfortunately bathtuub do not exist anymore even in 4 star hotels, sometimes this is difficult to understand....
Accomodation was perfect, bedroom was clean, bathroom is large, bed too... breakfast is nice too, it's not common for an italian hotel!!
Very good city hotel.Nice stuff. ne
Hard to find when arriving by car. Hotel only marked by a few flags.
the location is great even though very hard to get there. We got there late at night and could not get to the street. The stuff is nice and polite. the hotel was too kitchy for us, the price was very high for the value. The room they gave us was very far and noisy from the motors of the a\c. With this cost you would expect more!
Large room and bathroom. High ceilings and wide corridors. Old world environment. Very friendly and efficient staff.
hotel staff no
room was wonderful - big and spacy. nice breakfast (unusual for Italy). very central location. helpful staff. if you are looking for the best hotel in Bologna and aren't limited with budget - this is the only choice.
Very beautiful connecting rooms were ready for our family without my request. The staff in the hotel restaurant. No explanation of the course meal. We ordered a child chair but they did not set up.
Personnel very kind and helpful always striving to be accommodating. The breakfast room was very small on Monday and there were two small children who were noisy and disturbed the rest of the room.Hotel should have moved them to the adjoining room and closed the door.Or asked them to return to their room for breakfast.There was work being done on an adjoining property and they could be heard next door,these rooms should never haven been assigned.We were given an u
Service was excellent! The best I have ever experienced. Real 5 star service from the doorman, front desk, restaurant staff, bar tender, housekeeping, etc., all the employees were extremely courteous, helpful, attentive, and professional. Hotel is very nicely and tastefully decorated, lots of artwork and fancy walls, ceilings, etc, and our room was very comfortable. They gave us a free upgrade upon check-in (from a deluxe room to a grand deluxe). Location is perfect - it is right in the middle of town, close to all the attractions, restuarants, and shopping. Yet the inside of the hotel is very quiet and relaxing. Breakfast buffet (included in our room rate) was AMAZING!! Excellent food, lots of choices, and of course excellent service from the staff. I think it would be OK for kids, but it is probably better suited for adults. My wife and I had a wonderful time and I highly recommend this hotel! There is a small gym which I would have liked to be bigger with more equipment The grand deluxe room was a good size, but I think the standard rooms are quite small, especially for what U.S. tourists are used to.
Very good and central No
Service and standards at the hotel was excellent in all areas from recption to the restaurant.
