Large nice hotel perfect for Train arrival.
2 night first visit to Bologna. Arrived by train and Hotel is across the street from train station. Reception was efficient. No upgrade offered for gold status. Room was spacious and bathroom large. No cork screw or wine glasses for complimentary wine part of gold benefits. Area 10 minute walk to central tourist area. Breakfast worth $10 charge. Only small size plates available but plenty of selection. Hotel is large business type city hotel somewhat dated but well maintained. Everything was fine. Desk was friendly and helpful. Towels nice. Shower hard to keep water from floor. If traveling by train, perfect location. 1 English channel on TV.

Bologna stay
We entered the hotel in the morning, and yet our rooms were ready. We even received an upgrade. The staff were ever helpful, opening doors for us( I am in a wheelchair) . The room was very comfortable, but they didn't have an iron for us to use or conditioner for use in the shower.
