    Had to pay for wifi and didnt work well out of the lobby.

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    Great location. Walking distance to oldtown and very close to bus station. Old but comfortable, clean and large rooms. Nice and helpful staff generally.

    Slow and morose night staff. Almost had a fight with old night lobby chief.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    I like tje combination of price and the spacious and beautiful clean room.

    I did not particularly like the breakfast buffet. I thought it was not up to a 4stats hotel. And I did not like the atmotsfere of the restaurant. I would have prefered a beyter setting and classier for a 4 stars hotel.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Everything you would expect from a 4-star hotel - with a stylish 70's retro look as a bonus. The room was huge (45 sq.m), as was the bathroom, bar and kitchenette with tea/coffee-making facility. Although GHL is located on a main road, there was no noise. Breakfast was well catered, with proper espresso coffee available. Staff were friendly and helpful.

    The walk to the historic centre was over 20 minutes along a busy noisy road (but under a wide covered portico), however buses run every 10 min for 1.20 Euro pp each way - tickets usually available from reception. Kitchenware would have been useful.

  • Family with children
    6.2

    Great buffet breakfast. Great staff (though TOO helpful for a backpacker family like us...)

    We just stayed for one night waiting for the luggage to arrive from the airport. We stayed in a 5 person suite, but it did not look like a 4 star suite, more like a hostel (not that we mind). The bath and toilet should have been separat when 5 persons are sharing. But we slept well and got our luggage the next day.

  • Couple
    8.2

    location - about 10 min by bus from Airport (must get off on the bus stop Ospedale Maggiore) and 15 min walk to the city center. Good breakfast. Quite spacious room.Wardrobe, drawer enough for 2 people. Kettle and free tea in a room.

    payable wi-fi, no wi-fi signal in room only in lobby. Staff give us different information about a problem with wi-fi. Finally we didn't pay for it - without any discussion.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Beautiful, big, comfort room. They offer coffee, tea and cookies for people who have to leave early and miss the breakfast. About 20 min walk to the city center, but there is a bus stop right outside.

  • Single
    10.0

    like my single room.

    the room isn't equipped with very good soundproofing material and I could hear the washing machine all night long.

  • Family with children
    6.6

    I booked a Triple room and a Double room for my family. The double room was huge, even larger than the triple room. The hotel staff was really friendly and helpful. The location was good as the bus stop is right opposite to the hotel. You have to try the gelateria nearby the bus stop!

    At first when we arrive, we didnt know which bus to get on and we walked instead. It was a good 30 minutes walk. So you should always ask which bus to go to instead of walking!

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    Walking distance from the city centre, very good price, nice district, clean rooms Advantage was also 24h open reception.

  • Single
    9.2

    The rooms for a city location were massive. The 1970s theme was novel and made for an alternative approach, although it was well kept and updated.

    If you took the heating about the standard 22°, which was necessary in the large spacious room you had a fan going all most all the time. Parking is expensive, but street parking is safe enough. There is a free option on the road in front of the hotel if you can find a space, otherwise there is side street parking at 6€ a day.

  • Couple
    8.2

    The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast buffet quite delicious and various. For me the location was excellent for personal reasons, but still a walk away from the centre and the shops.

  • Couple
    7.4

    The room was spacious and extremely clean. The location was great at just a 15 minute walk to the centre. The staff were also extremely helpful and welcoming.

    The noise from the people in the room above was somewhat disturbing. The walls appear quite thin but then of course, the people could just be extremely noisy. This however would not stop us from going back.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The comfort of the room, the friendliness of the staff and nearness to city centre and airport.

    I thought that my internet purchased time ran out faster than I estimated. Internet is free in some other 4 star hotels.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    The staff were friendly and helpful. The Bologna arport is only 10minutes drive from the hotel. Our flight out was not until 6pm so they offered us a late check out beyond 12pm for foc. So they were so generous and we were so grateful for that. It was just the right day and time where no booking was made for our room that day. They had a mini kitchen there so that was very handy if you do not want to dine out but just tay t the hotel and chill out. We would stay there again.
