Bottom Line

The three pearl Unaway Hotel Bologna San Lazzaro, formerly Hilton Garden Inn Bologna, is a solid choice for business travelers who don’t mind staying outside the city center. Its 152 guest rooms are streamline and comfortable, with minibars, kettles, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi, although like some of the hotel's common spaces, they lack warm accents. Attractive amenities, which include a free hot breakfast, an on-site restaurant and bar, a 24-hour fitness center, and a large conference center, make the hotel a good value.

Oyster Hotel Review


A spacious hotel with lots of amenities for business travelers and tour groups 

This modern hotel has sleek interiors that some may find lack in warmth, as there are no colorful accents to draw the eye's attention. Still, it's an attractive property, with stencil prints of columns and other classic Roman designs on walls, which is a motif throughout. The lobby has clustered seating areas and low tables with a touch of midcentury style, and the reception desk doubles as a bar, but it isn't an enticing space where guests relax. The restaurant is airy and bright, and tends to see more traffic. The hotel mainly draws business travelers, and hosts good deal of corporate functions. But tour groups also stay here, which can make the restaurant quite crowded at breakfast when they all arrive together.  


In a quiet San Lazzaro neighborhood, about 20 minutes southeast of central Bologna

The Unaway Hotel is located in a quiet San Lazzaro neighborhood on the outskirts of Bologna. A pharmacy, supermarket, and a couple of restaurants are about five minutes on foot, but there’s really nothing of great interest within walking distance of the hotel. It’s located about 25 minute by car to Bologna's central landmarks, such as the Piazza Maggiore and Asinelli Tower. There's also a bus that stops in front of the hotel, which shuttles guests into the city in roughly 32 minutes. 

The Centergross exhibition and commerce center, and the city’s central rail station (Bologna Centrale) are 25-minute drives. Guglielmo Marconi Airport takes approximately 15 minutes by car. 


Streamline and well-equipped, with flat-screen TVs, minibars, kettles, and free Wi-Fi

Guest rooms are pleasant and not unstylish, although like the hotel's common areas, they lack colorful details to make them warm and inviting. But they feature attractive murals of architectural sketches above beds, modular wood furniture with a light veneer finish, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Drapes are dark brown, and the lovely hardwood floors have an amber finish. There are also desks and upholstered armchairs. Amenities are a plus, as all units come equipped with flat-screen TVs, minibars, kettles and free instant Nespresso coffee, safes, and free Wi-Fi.

Larger Suites have separate sitting areas with sleeper sofas. Bathrooms are roomy and have basin sinks, walk-in showers with removable showerheads, bidets, heated towel racks, hairdryers, and toiletries. Suites add separate showers and tubs, plus robes and slippers to the amenities package. 


Free hot breakfast, full-service restaurant/bar, 24-hour gym, and free on-site parking

This business-oriented hotel features a free hot breakfast buffet that’s served in the Unaway Restaurant, which also offers classic Italian dishes like lasagna and other handmade pastas for lunch and dinner. The Unaway Café is a full-service bar that serves light fare, like sandwiches and salads. There's also a convenience store that sells snacks and soft drinks. 

For wellness, there's a spacious 24-hour fitness center with free weights and several cardio machines, including Precor treadmills with video screens. Business travelers make use of the five meeting rooms that can accommodate up to 100 people, and there's a business center with printers.

Other amenities include a guest laundry room, valet dry cleaning and laundry services, and room service. Small pets are welcome without a surcharge, and plenty of free on-site parking is available. Wi-Fi is free throughout.
