Nice hotel - fantastic food
Posted Nov 12, 2015 on Hotels
In most respects this hotel lived up to expectations. It is conveniently located on the side of the ring road and although it is too far to walk to the city centre, buses leave regularly from a stop immediately outside the hotel. As others have commented it seems to be the poorer cousin of the main Savoia hotel with which it is co-located. But it gains from additional privacy, a discrete garden and ample secure car parking. It is also very good value.
The jewel in the crown is the main hotel restaurant which, as others have commented, is superb. It's not too pricey and I noticed that it appeared at no 16 in Bologna's list of their 25 top restaurants and was the only one classified at moderate price rather than expensive.
The staff were attentive and helpful, the breakfasts excellent.
Unfortunately I have two negative points. The ground floor room we were put into initially was dingy and none too clean. On request we were promptly shifted to a fully acceptable 2nd floor room, so just a minor blip, but.. Also the a/c had been switched off for the winter and although the staff endeavoured to get it switched back on, they didn't. Even with open windows the temperatures at night were a humid 29/30 degrees so very uncomfortable - pity.
