PHP How to print a single value from this Array?

I have an Array like this one:

Array ( [0] => a:39:{s:2:"id";s:6:"703981";s:4:"name";s:10:"Bilton Apt";s:7:"address";s:25:"Hart Blvd, Paradise Acres";s:3:"zip";s:2:"PO";s:10:"city_hotel";s:11:"Montego ....etc...

And i want to print in the page the "name" value so i wrote these two lines of code:

$item = get_post_meta($post->ID, '_ihfc_hotel');
echo $item['name'];

But when i load the page i receive this error:

Notice: Undefined index: name in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/wp_test_csv/wp-content/themes/twenty....etc

i tried with other solutions like:

echo $item[0]['name']; or echo $item[0]->['name']:

But none works

Some one can help me?

You need to unserialize the array, as told in the comments:

$ar = unserialize($item[0]);
echo $ar['name'];

You can put it in a loop to get all values in a multi dimensional array:

foreach($item as $key=>$value){
    $ar[$key] = unserialize($value);

and then access it:

echo $ar[0]['name'];
