"Spotlessly clean and the most comfortable bed ever"
Hotel was a short walk from bologna metro...about 10 minutes. Traveling on the metro was really easy as only two lines, A and B. Nice quiet street, plenty of shops and restaurants nearby though. All areas of hotel were v.well maintained, our room was a decent size,very clean and lovely decor. Breakfast is a typical continental, scrambled eggs were delicious but gave the bacon a miss as not cooked to my taste, there was a choice of cold meats,cheese, rolls, plenty of pastries and fruit ect. It was served between 7am and 10am which was great if you'd had a late night or needed an earlier start for getting to the airport.
I loved the bed, sooo comfy, especially after a full days sightseeing.
Pleasant stay, nothing was too much trouble. Residential neighborhood with nice family run restaurants in vicinity. Easy walk to metro one way or a pleasant walk into centre the other with lots to view along the way
Out of the five hotels I stayed in Italy during the month of October, Hotel Fenix was the only one where I could actually control the temperature of my room.
The bus stop is at the corner, one minute away from the hotel. You may board bus #90 (Express) and after about 14 minutes you are at Termini Station (Train and Metro). Very convenient. From Termini you board bus 90 and step down at the sixth stop (Nomentana/Gorizia) and the Hotel is just across the street at the corner.
The breakfast was very good. The muffins (blueberry and chocolate) were excellent. At this hotel you may actually eat the bacon, which is cooked. At other hotels the bacon is always half-cooked. My only complaint is that the juices are all acid: grapefruit, orange, and pineapple. For those of us who cannot drink acid juices, there were no other choices. The staff were courteous and friendly. If I return to Rome, I would definitely stay at Hotel Fenix.
I believe the rooms are sound proof, because one morning I stepped into the hall and I heard the TV from my neighboring room. Inside my room I heard no noise from my neighbor.
