« Good Value at Excellent Location »

Everything you need here for a few comfortable days exploring Bologna. Ideal if you're travelling by train as it's opposite the station. You still get "keys", which have to be returned, so this can slow up the reception desk considerably.

« Old Hotel »

The hotel has a good location. The staff was polite. The bed and pillows had good quality. The hotel needs renovation. The air conditioning was not regulated. There was a leak water inside the toilet. A lot of water was wasting. I informed the reception but the problem was not solved. The breakfast was poor. I am client from Ibis and Mercure a long time. That was the poorest branch.

« good stay »

the stay was very comfortable. Only point for improvement: the plain croissants should be without any citrus taste and yellow inside. Please use regular traditional flour - it is much tastier. The room was very comfortable. We liked the service a lot. Very friendly recenption desk :-)

« Room Quality »

Hi there, I had booked a non smoking room but the room allocated to me has very strong cigarette smell and the smell caused me breathing difficulty. So, I was unable to rest well and have a quality sleep. Regards, Christiana

« A great location by the railway station and a short walk to the centre of the city. »

Bologna is very surprising with great building and a interesting history. The hotel adequate and up to Mercure standards for the two nights we stayed. Parking was easy and the stay gave us a good appreciation of the city.

« Stay here »

Good location near train station, bus lines, and walkable to city center. Clean. Ask for room overlooking park. Amazingly quiet. Rental cars in the area is handy. Taxi to airport at 4am was right on time.

« Convenient, right price, no frills »

A perfectly standard hotel, adjacent to the train station (very busy road - don't bring a car!). I stay there for convenience. The "ironing room" solution to the ironing board problem is unique and acceptable. Not the "dream" Bologna hotel stay but all is as advertised and pricing is right.

« Good hotel in good location »

Easy to get to from either the airport or the central train station. There is a metro station right outside the hotel making travel around the city very easy. Most sights are however within walking distance. There are numerous restaurants in the area, including an excellent one right next down. Rooms are a decent size and quite comfortable. Staff are friendly and quite helpfull.

« First time visit. »

Normally stay at the Star Hotel which is practically next door to the Mecure. On this occasion chose the Mecure as it was less expensive. The location is ideal for Bologna Train station. The booking in at reception took ages and a queue quickly built up. The reception staff were under pressure so no introduction to Bologna etc. Large bulky keys which require depositing and collection may have slowed down the process. Breakfast was good with a choice of hot cooked or cold foods. The problem with the room 733 which we were allocated is that the room was fine but it is not sound proofed. No problems from road traffic as on the 7th floor. The problem is with noise from adjoining room(s). We should not be able to hear their TV, discussions or sexual activities but unfortunately this is the case. No point in complaining to an ineffective reception staff at midnight so in short if you book this hotel you might want to reject room 733. I do not know if the problem exist in other rooms.

« Older, busy hotel - disappointing »

Stayed here for one night visiting Bologna. Despite being an Accor member the priority check in didn't work because staff were busy checking in large groups. We had a privilege room but it was old with plastic 'glasses' and paper cups- so poor in a hotel which is supposed to be a quality one. Air conditioning barely worked so we were pleased the weather wasn't very hot. Bar staff couldn't really be bothered to serve us and it felt an imposition asking for a drink! No small snack offered either either. Breakfast was ok but only precooked scrambled egg and just one, very slow coffee machine for this large hotel- resulted in a slow queue just for coffee! Rest of the breakfast was fair. Overall an old, mediocre hotel with staff who couldn't really be bothered about customer service. Even at breakfast staff were quick to clear items from tables, even if you were still eating. It gave the impression that you needed to hurry up- on holiday! We had asked for a quiet room and we did get this which was good. The garden wasn't very well kept and it wasn't very conducive to a pre-dinner drink. Overall it was poor and very disappointing.

« Bologna stop over »

Great location, great staff but urgently needs a major refurbishment. Broken tiles in the bathroom, a hole in the bath filled with sealant, noisy ineffective air conditioning, plastic cups for your coffee, a minibar that wasn't cold but we only paid €72/night so I suppose you get what you pay for...

« Comfort and convenience at Bologna Centrale »

Mercury at Bologna Centrale is the go to option for your Bologna visit. I stayed there 2 years in a row. It is very fine for your Bologna explorations. As Bologna is a hub on TrenItalia high speed rail network, the Mercure is ideal using Bologna as base station for day trip all across North Italy to Venice one hour, Florence 90 minutes Rome 2.5 hours. Easy. Beatuiful.

Good location, friendly and professional staff who were happy to help. Room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was relaxed and the staff were helpful and happy. Enjoyed our stay and would recommend to friends.

« Ideal location and excellent customer service »

Hotel is a bit dated, but very clean. The standard double room is adequate, but the privilege rooms are far superior in size and quieter - a much better option. The garden is a welcome haven from the bustle of the city. The bar and reception offer efficient and helpful service with a smile. Breakfast room is cramped when the hotel is busy.

« Everything going for it! »

The location cannot be beat; it is literally across the street from the train station, a 2-3 minute walk. We took the bus from the airport to the train station. Also within easy walking distance of the main old city tourist sights. Lots of restaurants around it. . Room was decent size, quiet, had a refrigerator and was on a non-smoking floor. The included breakfast was excellent: nice atmosphere, presentation, good variety of hot and cold dishes, great pastries and good, friendly service .Reasonable rate as well. This is a no brainer.

Well placed just in front of Bologna train station, I often choose this hotel for business instead of staying overnight in Florence: an early fast train will take you to Florence in just 30 minutes and for as less as 15 euros.

« Very nice and helpful people. »

The welcome and help from the staff was excellent. The room was OK but stuffy. We left the window open to cool the room - air-con not working. The worst thing was breakfast - terrible. Very cold boiled eggs, tasteless cheese, poor range of fresh fruit. Dreadful bread, poor croissant - in Italy!!!
