Recent reviews

Very good 8.4 From 209 reviews

Very good 8.0
Good location.
Alberto Centrale was ideally situated, as its name suggests, just a couple of minutes from Piazza Maggiore. The room was small and a little care worn and the window probably looked out onto a small internal courtyard although we couldn’t see anything (even the weather) because the area was filled by scaffolding. The buffet breakfast was reasonable with a good choice. Overall Alberto Centrale was about what we expected, and we were content, but would have felt a little claustrophobic if we had stayed longer than our 2 nights.

Fair 4.0
Great location! But avoid room 24!
The location is ideal, easy walking to Piazza Maggiore and great bars and restaurants. The room had no natural light, as window was blocked with scaffolding, and work lights were left on all the time. Air conditioning wasn’t working and couldn’t have window open due to noise from work or generator. Some Reception staff were friendly. When we paid the City Tax and were leaving, it was interesting that we were not asked if we had enjoyed our stay.

Good central hotel
Staff very friendly Hotel is on third floor but has a lift. Our room was very comfortable over looking rooftops and the leaning towers. Minutes walk from sights. Breakfast was continental but was more than enough. All the staff especially Marcella on reception and the restaurant staff were helpful.

Excellent located city hotel
We only stayed for one night on the way to see the MotoGP at Misano however we could have easily stayed for further nights. Excellent location around the corner to the main square in Bologna. The hotel is much more than 2 star. Yes the rooms are in need of updating but ours was so spacious and very clean. The bed was comfortable, the bedding crisp and white, teas made in the room and a mini bar/fridge. We would definitely stay again at the hotel again. The only negative was the polystyrene plates at breakfast and too much plastic, e.g. plastic spoons in plastic wrappers. Not green.

Excellent location on Bologna's main street close to the historic centre and lots of good restaurants and bars. Bus and train stations ( same location) are 5 minutes away by bus which stops close by. Staff pleasant and helpful.
