      In desperate need of renovation

      The hotel is an hotel from the 70s if not older and has never seen an upgrade, and minimal maintenance. The rooms, furniture, bathroom, bathroom ware all very outdated and are in desperate need to be renovated. The location of the hotel is very central, but that's about the only positive thing there is to say.

      hotel palace bologna

      the hotel is very well located just few steps from Bologna center. The hotel is hosted inside an old palace but unfortunately has not received any refurbishment since it has been established. Room furniture are from the 60's and not in very well conditions (one day a small column from a side table collapsed but none put it back). Shower head had a crack, having water going out mostly from there, rather than the head. Room cleaning one day was good another less, maybe related to personnel shift??

      Renovation required

      Fantastic location, lovely restored reception area, lounge & breakfast room, BUT the rooms badly need renovating. This hotel has the potential to be great again but has been let-go. IE: creaking floors in rooms & corridors wake even heavy sleepers!

      Great location, awful beds.

      Hotel is in an amazing location, in a really lovely part of the heart of Bologna. The staff were super helpful and very kind and considerate. However this experience was a little ruined by the bed. I know it is often common for hotels to push two beds together to make a double bed for a couple however they normally use a big fitted sheet to at least ensure the beds stay together. They did not do this. As my husband and I were on a holiday together this was pretty disappointing as it basically meant we were sleeping on two seperate beds - and the mattresses were pretty uncomfortable also.

    • 2.0.Poor

      Great location but terrible hotel rooms

      The only good thing about this hotel is the location. The room was smelly, the wallpaper peeling off the walls, the carpet threadbare and dirty, no hot water for the shower and the bathroom door was rotten and falling apart.

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      A hotel with historical interest.

      This hotel is in a great location in the city. We stayed in room 412 which we loved. The decorated ceiling was impressive, as was the wooden tiled floor. The huge windows opened to a small balcony. This hotel is old but full of character, for some people it would not be a good choice. Towels were changed regularly and the bed comfortable. In the lounge again you get a feel for the amazing history of the building as the receptionist told us about its past. I would describe it as faded grandeur and we would definitely stay here again.

      Rundown and in need of a makeover

      Although the location of the hotel is excellent and it has a nice lobby, there is little else to recommend this hotel. I was initially placed in a room without a window (!) which was not acceptable. I was then given a room with a window, but it was small and sparse, and perhaps the worst aspect was that the bed and floor creaked every time I moved, and what's more I could hear the floor in the room above me and in the corridor outside creaking too every time someone went by. Actually, on second thoughts, that wasn't the worst thing. The worst thing was the bathroom, which was so tiny my elbows literally touched the walls (and of course it had no window). All this would have been bad enough, but it also cost a fortune, because most if not all the hotels in Bologna shamelessly double, triple or even quadruple their prices during the September trade fair, when business people like myself need to be there. So I was staying in a hotel that calls itself 3-star but charges like a 5-star while offering 1-star facilities.

      Good location for the tourist attractions. Hotel felt dated in appearance. Breakfast choice was a bit limited, with few hot alternatives.
