How far are you from Bologna airport
About 20 minutes by taxi which cost about 20 euros. The bus was 6 euros and took you to the central station in about 40 minutes. It was a 15 minute or so walk from there to the hotel.

"Could see the sunset over the rooftops from my fourth floor room."
"In my opinion, there couldn't possibly be any good rooms!!! If you like pigeons, room 425 would be good for you!"
"Find a room with a good shower away from the street."
"Need a good room? Go somewhere else then..."
"I would ask for a room at the front on 3rd or fourth floors as they have balconies."
