    The hotel is in a good location-15 minute walk to the city or a bus from outside the hotel.Very pleasant staff.

    This has a 4 star classification which it is definitely not.It had a fridge which did not work and supplied plastic glasses in the room and at breakfat-what 4 star ever does that?

    This is a very nice, chic four star hotel. When we booked, we were booking based on price as we were travelling on budget. Pleasantly surprised by how nice the hotel was and how great of a deal we got! One of the classiest suites we have ever stayed at! Amazing breakfast as well.

    Friendliness of reception staff. Cleanliness and layout of room. Excellent breakfast

    One minor fault - we had booked a twin room and were allocated a double. As the room was great in every other respect, we did not request a change of room.

    The staff were nice and the room was decent. Very close to the airport (11 euros in taxi), and easy to get into the centre of town and the station(approx 20-30 stroll). Good value compared to others we looked at.

    We very much enjoyed our stay at Suite Hotel Elite. The decor was modern and fashionable, as well as spacious and the breakfast included was more than sufficient -- probably one of the most complete breakfasts we had in all of Italy! The staff were superb, very friendly and gracious to us - Adrian even lent us his laptop computer when we did not have one to use which was very kind of him! It did take a solid 20 minutes to walk to the main centre, but this was good for us (after all of our eating!) and we didn't mind at all. We actually walked the whole time while in Bologna, but could have taken the local buses which were across the street from us. (From the train station, the hotel is approximately 25 minutes of solid walking)

    Great value for money, nice design of the room, beautiful girl at the reception

    When I was booking the hotel, there was no information that it's necessary to reserve parking. At the arrival I got informed that there are no parking places left and I had myself to find a parking place on one of the streets. Besides, the wireless Internet didn't work.

    Breakfast and wireless internet free of charge

    Half of the room is nicely decorated the other half is very old as well as the corridors. is more a 3 starts than a 4 starts hotel

    Very clean, nice decor, well located, good value for money, great rooms.

    Nothing much... Just the lack of continental adapters (use Italian system) in the reception.

  • Family with children

    I choose the cheapest 4 stars close to the airport. Good value for money.

    Rooms where just ok, more like a 3 stars level. Reception was not able to help us with driving directions. It's a one way street close to no-traffic zone ZTL not so easy to find the way to.
