Not so cheap and not so cheerful!

Customer review rating 1.0/5

Richard A. D. Couples - 18/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Brown water for several minutes as we turn on the hand basin taps and the shower, in both rooms. No TV reception in both rooms. Either room because we had to change rooms due to door lock not working. The technician had to come up after difficulties with the lock and he abused and blamed us for ‘breaking’ the lock. The reception at reception was poor and down right rude. It started with the ‘well it’s noon and checking is 2pm’. I hate that! We know we were early but what happened to ‘sorry no rooms ready but you can certainly leave luggage’. But really? No rooms? The hotel was obviously empty. We have been travelling in Europe for nearly two months and have stayed in assorted hotels and hotel brave. This hotel is the absolute worse we have stayed in. The smallest bath/shower arrangement. Old and very tired. Would never recommend and would never stay again. A complete refund would be nice.

Nice stay

It was ok

The appearance of the room and bathroom is not the best ..

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Csaba Business - 04/12/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The wallpapers are coming down by several places in the room. The wood at the lavatory is soaked, the water pulling-off handle was dirty. I have expected the same 4 stars level, like in the other Mercure Hotels in Germany, Poland or Austria..

Not a bad experience

egajuan 23/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

After reading really bad reviews, I was expecting the worst. However, this is not a bad hotel. Staff are polite. Rooms are quite decent. Breakfast has a wide variety of options. My biggest complaint would be the pressure of the hot water in the shower. That really ruined the end of my stay.

Nice location close to railway station

Helen G. Solo - 18/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel was in a great location but was dated and I expected more from the price. There was mould around the bathroom sealant and there was a strong smell of food being cooked coming into the room which wasn’t pleasant. Breakfast was good with a varied selection.

Good location, and excellent stay

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Jl Couples - 18/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Location in front of train station with only a short walk to the old town is perfect. Super friendly and helpful staff. But the property is oh so old and dated. Room needs a complete remodelling. Lacking amenities. Probably would stay at the newer hotel next door next time.

Made to be welcome

Ian F. G. Business - 15/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Feeling cautious on the first trip after such a long time. The welcome before arriving and during the whole stay was warm and friendly, safety and hygiene was clearly top priority. It was a good place to be to enjoy Bologna and the region.

Not great. Poor service and limited opening of bar. Went to hotel next door for service

Location is great, just hotel needs investment and refurbishment

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Marek Business - 04/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very polite stuff, rooms are typical Italian design, bit smaller I`m used to be in Merkure chain - this also depends on country.

Not good at all.

Axel Solo - 03/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very old hotel, bathroom is from the 80s. Way to expensive for this experience.

Good location but the hotel is a touch "tired"

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Alex Solo - 27/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Good location by the train station and all the furniture and the hotel in itself would have been great back in the day but everything is rather old and unloved now. Saying this the room was clean, the bed was nice and comfy and the service very good as well.

Filthy, outdated, in bad need of renovation and new management.

Anonymous Families - 22/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Mercure Bologna Central is well located right in front of the train station, with a small walk to the vivious city centre. The staff was very nice. However, the rooms really could use some refurbishment (cracked tiles in the bathroom, outdated furniture, carpet with stains).

Thomas Business - 19/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Room was really old, dirty carpet, broken wall and floor in bathroom, dirty bath. I don't know how this hotel can have 4 stars.

Desperate need for renovation

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.
