    « Excellent Hotel outside of the center of Bologna »

    Top BW-Hotel, but outside of the center of Bologna, It may be good for car drivers, but not for public transport's passenger. Nothing to see and to doi in this area, Excellent prices for the room (I kindly was upgraded due to my card) and the breakfast.

    « Nicely presented hotel »

    Stayed as part of a Costsaver tour. This was really only a stopover but was a pleasant surprise. It was stylish & modern. Nice toiletries in the room. Nice spacious room. Clean & comfortable. Breakfast good selection but hot items had gone cold. Dinner was average, pan fried chicken was a bit dry with no gravy or sauce. Also this is the same menu we've had at all the other hotels with included meals bar one, so really over it now.

    « excellent »

    great staff, very good breakfast buffet and a spotless room. Just a bus ride to the Centro area where there is so much to do. Excellent restaurants and churches etc. The hotel staff was very informative and very very friendly. A must see area!

    « Great Hotel »

    This is a really nice hotel. A little bit out from the centre of Bologna but only €9 in a cab. Very friendly staff and the room was really good. Great space and very clean. Breakfast was also very good with a mix of continental and cooked.

    « Nice stay for business »

    I spent 3 nights for a business trip in Bologna, I managed to have also a presentation in the meeting/conference room. Conference room service was quite good even if from the windows of the conference room at ground floor there was a bad sight on the backyard that was quite dirty, we had to keep curtains always closed in a sunny day. ABout the hotel room it was nice, quite new and large enough. I would say it was clean, cannot say exactly the same for the bathroom where a bit more attention would be appreciated. In general my stay was good. It's easy to reach it because it's just out of the highway but it's tricky to find the right street to access.

    « Good hotel »

    This is a good hotel about 4 km from the downtown area. There are bus stops close by to get there. I walked and that takes about 1 hr. A supermarket and restaurant are close by and in walking distance. The airport is about 10 driving mins away. Parking is offered for free. The room had a good size with a modern touch to it. It was clean and there is free water for the guests in the room. Looking at the overall impression the hotel would need a little renovation here and there, but it is still ok. Wifi is free and the speed was ok. A nice breakfast buffet is offered at no cost with a good choice of cold and hot options. Overall a good place to stay, perhaps not the best if one wants to be close to downtown though. But great if one wants to be close to the highway. Staff was very nice and helpful.

    « Lovely Hotel in quaint city of Bologna »

    Very helpful and professional staff and ready to offer you any assistance. Delicious breakfast and nice rooms . Location of the Hotel is not exactly at city center but conveniently located with ample parking space for big coaches. Ideal for Groups.

    « Xmas day lunch »

    Beautiful modern Italian styled restaurant, excellent food, excellent value, staff attentive. Maron gnocchi superb and sea bream that followed cooked to perfection and smelt like the sea, complimentary pudding provided by chef just what was required. This restaurant is 2nd floor of the hotel and as quite often Xmas day lunch can be difficult to arrange in Italy this is our solution. We have done this before and just booked a 4/5* hotel, on 2 occasions where we have been the only 2 people there but we have not been disappointed, it is a very good value option. Our Xmas lunch was cheaper than some of the city bar type restaurants that we used in Bologna.

    « Very good price-value ratio »

    We travelled by car and enjoyed our stay at Best Western Plus Tower Hotel Bologna. Friendly english-speaking stuff, clean and comfortable room with a magnificent view towards the historical city center, good breakfast with good coffee. The only thing that we were missing was a "please don't disturb / don't make the room today" sign. The location is very good for those who travel by car. There are large supermarkets nearby - Esselunga right across the street, or a shopping mall with a huge Conad store to the north.

    « Comfortable room »

    It is not recommeneded to live in city center of Italy. The hotel is 20minutes bus from train station, opposite a big supermarket. Room is clean and comfortable, we come work and take good rest there for 3 nights. Defect is room card needs to be updated after 1 day.

    « Tower Hotel »

    Well located and an easy 4 mile walk into the centre of town. Very big and modern room with big bathroom including full bath. Our room included breakfast and the selection was very wide and extremely nice. The reception staff had excellent English and their assistance, especially when using the business facilities was exceptional. In addition, within the restaurant, the staff could not have been more accommodating from the selection of afternoon drinks to charging our mobile phones to the coffee in the mornings. Great stay and looking forward to revisiting this hotel

    « Had a fabulous time here... »

    The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, despite the language barrier (I didn't speak any Italian). My room was always clean. The food at this hotel was incredible (you must try the grilled octopus salad). I'm gluten-free, and my options were clearly laid out. Next time I'm in Bologna, I'll be sure to stay here again!

    « Very good hotel »

    We had a pleasant experience at Best Western Plus in Bologna. Before arriving, we received an e-mail confirming our reservation and making sure that we had the correct coordinates to reach the hotel. Our check-in was fast and efficient. Breakfast was good and varied. It seems that locals have breakfast at the hotel during weekends. This doesn't deter the staff which efficiently replenish. The room, air conditioning and services were fine. We liked the fact that we were away from the city centre in a quiet neighbourhood.

    « Just Great! »

    The hotel is perfect for business travelers! The staff is just great! The room is well designed, the breakfast is great, the persons who work there are very helpful and happy! Obviously the management does a really good job there! Nothing to add.

    « It's okay... »

    The hotel is a little dated. The front desk was super super nice! Beware of the taxi the call, we were overcharged! The meter started at 8.80 € when we took cab back it started at 4.40€ . The taxi company was COTABO

    « Just a fine hotel »

    Nice room, cleaned and with air conditioner. Bathroom good as well, the breakfast was with all needed things. Wi-fi works good, I even managed to play couple of online games from my notebook. There's even a market near from where you buy various things at good prices. Overall it's a hotel that I would recommend to anyone, the only problem is the lack of weights on the fitness room, but everything else is just fine.

    « As expected - nice hotel with free cofee »

    We stayed for 2 nights, at first we had trouble finding hotel entry and parked our car across the street - in supermarket parking. Staff was helpful and friendly. Room was really nice with big bathroom and bathtub. City center is about 30 minutes away by foot and 5 by car. In lobby you can find cofee and tea machine free of charge and breakfast is great value for money.

    « Lousy hotel »

    Not a 4 Star hotel. Rooms are in a very bad shape (Moved 3 times due to disg. stains, bad aircon, etc.). We are moving to another hotel now, as this is unacceptable. The two stars are for the staff, who did all they could to help.

    « Poor mangment »

    We pay almost 700 usd per night because of the cosmoprof. By mistake I book 1 guest we were 2. They charge us aditional person 50 eur. The hotel is far from everywhere. You need to consider 15 eur taxi to every single location you want to go. Nothing to see around the area. Very noisy rooms you will hear everything that happens outside.

    « Across the street from a supermarket »

    We went to Italy for Neridronate treatment for my CRPS - if you know anyone that has it please let them know. They are starting trials in the US but it really works. We stayed 2.5 weeks at 4 different hotels. This was the 2nd hotel we stayed at. Pros Across the street from a supermarket Able to control the temperature of the room! Cons Very, very firm beds. I actually got enough pillows to sleep on them. Awful breakfast - cold eggs. Awful room service & restaurant

    « Clean and comfortable »

    Very cooperative staff. Location is not near to city center but there is a near bus station (5 min walk). The room is very comfortable and the view from window was beautiful in the morning. The breakfast was very good.

    « Functional »

    A little out of town, nothing much around, makes sense if you are going for a show, else possibly not. They charge 15 Euro per person for round trip to the Fair, Taxi is about 10 Euro to go and similar to come back, and you go and come when u want - although Taxi's difficult to get from fair, unless you leave a bit early. Free Tea / Coffee in lounge helps. Everything else is as I said functional

    « Clean, pleasant, comfortable »

    Deserving of its 4* rating, this hotel is a lovely example of Italian hospitality. The service is warm, the complimentary bottle of water in your fridge each day is a lovely touch, and the beds are so comfortable that I found it difficult to motivate myself to go out in the morning! The location is not central, but it is £10 taxi or 15 minute bus-ride to the centre.

    « Good Base for Visiting Historic Bologna »

    This hotel is a short bus ride from the historic area of Bologna, which was wonderful for our vacation. It was clean and quiet and offers complimentary parking, a rarity in Italy. The only downside is the actual entrance was very difficult to find because there's no turn in from the direction GPS takes you.

    « The best hotel I have ever stayed »

    Very good reception. Amazing room with amazing bed! A very good breakfast for a very reasonable price. It is a little bit outside the city, but it really worths staying there! Modern, simple, very comfy!

    « Looks good just on pictures »

    not too much helpfull staff, I had room with free mini bar but inside was just water and juice, and when I opened it - smell could kil. They said that I have room with view, but from my window I seen one building. Nothing special in this hotel, completely lack of maintanace of all facility. The second Best Western I visited and I don't have nothing good to say. For me no more Best Western.

    « Simply fantastic - lovely place with great food »

    I was here doing a two day seminar with a few hundred people so the convention was booked here. Lovely room and great food. The Hotel was clean and tidy and I was delighted with my room which was fully air conditioned

    « Great hotel with some potential improvements! »

    The Best Western Plus Tower in Bologna is a very nice hotel. The rooms are nice and comfortable. You have a lot of space in there, a mini bar and a TV with various programms in different languages. The position from the hotel is awesome, if you travel by car. You can reach all important places in Bologna. What could be improved is the service, the gym and the pizza. I had contact with several persons from the reception but only one or two were really nice and tried to help. The other ones I found unfriendly as I for example left the room a little to late they told me in a harsh way to leave the room as soon as possible. I ate once in the restaurant and when you visit Italy you eat pizza. But the pizza in the restaurant was the worst that I ever tasted. Seemed to be a frozen one which was only heated for me. Very bad for an italien restaurant/hotel! The gym was nice but could be bigger. Only some cardio machines. That could've been better. In general, besides these points, I enjoyed my stay and I would come back.

    « was hard to find to get to it from the main road, but otherwise excellent »

    only niggle was that we had requested a single king bed but didn't get this, as i hate the gap when they put two singles together. otherwise, this was a really good hotel, great location for returning the car to the airport, and the optional breakfast for 3 euros was astonishingly good! :)

    « Nice rooms, but unfriendly service »

    The hotel is nice. The rooms are clean and modern. The air conditioner was a liddle loud but gave fresh air. The breakfast has a lot of different food. The restaurant in general was a little expensive. I had a pizza and compared to other italian pizzas it was very bad. I didn't tried other food because of the price. What I didn't liked was the service. They seemed to be unfriendly and unpatiened. This should be improved, because it gives the hotel a bad image which it doesn't deserve.

    « Very good choice if your are coming to Bologna by car »

    Excellent choice if you are arriving by car and want to stay out of the central traffic. Nice hotel, pleasant attentive service. English was spoken by all desk staff. Free parking. Supermarket about 150 meters away. Really nice local pizzeria just around the corner, the Pantera Rosso. Bus stop 5-10 minute walk away, and it's a single bus for about 15 minutes to the center. Very please with our choice to stay here.
