We had 2 rooms 4 people. The air conditioning did not work in one of the rooms. Someone came the first night to look and said he would come back he did not. We went to buy a fan ourselves. Next afternoon after repeatedly trying to get them to fix the AC they finally did. We also had a toilet that was rocking of the wall. Staff at the front were amazing and very friendly.

Love it every time
I have been visiting this hotel since 2010 every year at least 3 or 4 times in a year. It is not a fancy or anything like 5 stars..but it has its own character which love. People who works at the hotel are so nice, breakfast, internet, room, location is just for me. In an average year I stay over 300 nights in hotels that around the world, Bologna Novotel Fiera is my favorite by far. Thank you guys..

Easy location for car traveling. Hotel is a children friendly however, rooms/bathrooms (although appropriate size for 4*) feel a bit rundown. Overall hotel has an industrious feel.

Great location Bed bounced up via springs to make it easier to change the bedding?? Bathroom had not been used for a while and it smelled rather bad but we ran the shower for 5 minutes ( in both rooms) and the smell went away.
