Samuele Couples - 27/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is ok for a very short stay, but it would really need some renovations. Our room looked quite old & the A/C was not working properly. But overall it was clean and the bed comfortable.

Perfect location

Location wise it is perfect, just right across the street from the Central Train Station. About 15-20 minutes stroll to the old city centre. Still using key instead of card pass to enter the room, old fashion but it still work. Only 1 socket I the room which is by the desk. Would be nice to have addition socket preferably by the bed. Receptionist, Pascale and the other lady who checked me in was very helpful and super friendly. She gave me the name of the restaurants which I could visit. I went and they were very good! Overall good value for money, be nice when they finally got the upgrade they deserved.

Good location, right infront of the train station

The décor was quite old school and needs abit of renovation to modernise it (especially a competing brand behind is quite modern). Our bath room was recently updated, however there seems to be a sewerage smell. Very good location to get around Bologna and room is quiet. Staffs are friendly and has a beautiful garden. the covid19 precautions makes you feel safe.

Good location but hotel definitely requires renovation

Maciek Couples - 01/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I liked the location within short walking distance from the historical centre but the rooms were old and dark. Also, there is no restaurant in the hotel which is inconvenient for late arrivals.

Well located

Well located but tired hotel

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Nicole L. Couples - 23/09/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We have stayed at a number of Mercure hotels, mostly in France, and this hotel, while perfectly adequate, is in need of refurbishment. The decor is tired and at the very least needs painting. The buffet breakfast was very disappointing, with not a lot of choice, although Covid has obviously changed the experience. The staff, however, were extremely pleasant, polite and helpful.

Good location near the station, clean, friendly staff

Really nicely positioned hotel just reopened after the CV closures... the staff are exceptionally nice and really helpful .. they helped us plan and book all our trips and were really careful about our safety . The room was nice and large and well appointed overlooking the gardens. A great time and the staff to be praised for making our trip memorable .. we will definitely be back !

Christopher C 14/03/2020 TripAdvisor review

Good sized rooms. Clean and tidy. Needs maintenance [broken chair].and updating. Travelled home during the corona virus. Early morning on the day of our departure [06.00] our flight was cancelled. Had to re-book with another airline. Pasquale on the front desk went the extra mile to help us. Got home safely. Thank you.

Well located opposite train station and airport bus stop and only short walk from city centre. Friendly staff and everywhere clean. But an unusual experience because of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Good stay with very strategic location. Stay in line with expectation and price rate

Great location and great price but the bathroom/shower ruins the experience

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Nerida K. Business - 28/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Whilst the location and price are excellent the shower ruins the total experience. Not only is the shower built for a small child under 10 you physically burn yourself with the lack of water power and temperature capability from the shower rose. I have very long hair and it was impossible to be able to wash my hair a) because it would simply not give me adequate water pressure and I could not wash out the soap suds and b) because it would scald your head one minute and then be freeing cold the next. In fact the shower is dangerous as it could burn someone as the water temperature is so erratic that some days it was only scalding hot. Bending down in the shower to pick up shampoo etc was dangerous as you physically hit the folding shower wall. We also never had a bath mat - other than the first day. The shower ruined the experience for us.

An excellent experience of stay at Mercure Bologna, warm welcome when we arrived. Great room, pleasant drink in the lounge. Breakfast was excellent, what a choice of food, the best yet. We will be back. Excellent location right next to Bologna central station.

Mercure Centro, so easy to find

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

dcba3crg Couples - 06/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

The hotel was easy to find, well if you were arriving by train or the airport bus as it was just across the road. It is a busy area but you are in the middle of Bologna where you can go straight out & explore. Despite being in a busy "transit" are the hoel was very quiet inside. Our room overlooked the rear garden & was a good size, but on the second day the toilet gave up flushing, this was reported in the morning but was not able to be fixed so we were able to move to the next door room. Probably because of its size the hotel felt a bit "impersonal" & didn't compare to the "Mercure" in Parma where we stayed the previous year. However it was very quiet & we did get a good nights sleep.
