Average hotel for a reasonable price

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 1, 2007

We stayed at Hotel Maxim for only one night, though one could almost say that we stayed for two. We had taken a night train to Bologna and arrived very early at the hotel. The staff was kind to us as they waited for a room to become available (they had been fully booked during the night), and even offered us a free breakfast. They had a room ready for us at 9:30am, so we even got a quick catnap in our room before starting our day of sightseeing. This gracious service greatly improved my opinion of the hotel.

The double room is a two-level arrangement--a sitting area with TV and a daybed downstairs, and upstairs a loft with the master bed and another TV. While this setup gave the room a feel of spaciousness, they did not install enough lights and this meant that some heavy shadows were cast on the lower level in the evening. As a result, the room would often feel unpleasantly dark after sunset. The bathroom was modern, but the shower was very cramped and some of the towels were paper-thin.

The breakfast was all pastries and sweetbreads, which were tasty but meant you had a breakfast without substance. We had trouble with the wireless connection in the lobby; it only seemed to work with our Mac and not let our PC log in.

The location was convenient enough, with a short (10-15 mins) bus ride to the train station and center of the city. The bus runs frequently making travel easy.

Directions: Take bus line 25 from the train station. It passes under a highway and goes through a park. The first stop after the park is right in front of the hotel. 10-15 minute ride.
