Not a bad experience

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

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 4.5/5

Smooth checkin, nice room with facilities and good space in the room, good bar.

Well located but so very old

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.

John M. Business - 14/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

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.

Customer review rating 1.5/5

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.

Funghi in the bathroom, disgusting breakfast, paper hanging from the walls, shower working half and air conditioning not at all, walls made from paper,...

Well located, Nice staff, refurbishment necessary

Customer review rating 3.5/5

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).


Customer review rating 1.5/5

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

the hotel needs renovation and the mattress of the bed is old, the breakfast poor

Handy for the rail station

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Jimbo88hk Couples - 25/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Did not start well with the room allocated being either in use or not having been made up 7th floor. Moved to 2nd floor but without offers of assistance. The second room was clean and well presented but lacked cups and tea coffee makings though a kettle was present. During the visit reception and breakfast buffet teams were attentive, informative and smart.

Jan Families - 22/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I asked during the booking for a room at the back of the hotel, we got a room on the noisy front. Breakfast was very poor not Mercure worthy. Breakfast staff was unfriendly an rough.

Well located BUT needs renovation.

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Damien Business - 22/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Nice hotel location and staff. However, my room was very shabby - damp stains on ceiling and walls. The wallpaper was peeling. The bathroom is like something from a 70's sitcom. Lads, wise up and change the interior.

Good location. Abandoned facilities not renovated, no maintenance. No standard Mercure quality. Disappointed.

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Juan Couples - 21/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is well located, the staff is friendly but the facilities are very old and there is not maintenance. In our room the friedge was warmer inside than outside, the swhower position was very unconfortable and there were not pressure, the mattress which is one of the most important things in a hotel room were very old and sagged. The lift doors were scrapped with names like an abandoned building. Totally disappointed.

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.
