        Comfort room”

        Large room ,near center, good parking

        We were stay at the Royal calton Hotel in Bologna was nice. We had large and comfortable room. And the hotel had a very good parking and the Wifi. The breakfast are not so good as we expect. The hotel should have variety of breakfast buffet. The location from the hotel is very near to the old city so you just can go by walk .

        Nice hotel, good location near central station”

        Elegant hotel, walking distance from the station

        Nice and clean room with enough space to work comfortably. I spent 4hrs in a video call at the desk without any problem. Good service that allowed me a late checkout to finish my video call. I ate dinner in the hotel restaurant: excellent service and good quality of the food.

        Very good location. But breakfast was below average due to limited selection. The most disappointing thing was the lack of electric tea pot. I have never been in a hotel without electric tea pot until now. To be fair, this information was provided when I made reservation. I would have changed my mind about making the reservation if I had read it.
