Room was a little bit small but clean, quiet and value for money. Me and my friend didn't ask for a room move because most of the time we were out in a city. Very close to railway station (5 min walk), restaurants, pubs, shops and all attractions you can find it this beautiful city. Hotel receptionists were very friendly,... More

Our stay was only for 2 nights and was one we thoroughly enjoyed. Susanna, at reception was very welcoming and as we were too early to check in, offered to hold our bags for us while we went in search of a laundromat and a lunch venue before coming back to check in.- Susanna gave us directions for both, Our...

Room is very small. Bathroom is large with jacuzzi. Better to request for rooms in "new wing", at which the corridor, lift and room are newly renovated. They initially offered us a room in "old wing", at which the lift, corridor and room looked old. And there was bad smell in the room so we requested for another one. Good... More

We stayed at Il Guercino for six nights on the front and back end of a trip to Emilia-Romagna. The hotel is only a few minutes walk from the train station and situated at the edge of the old city center of Bologna. While the common areas of the hotel are very light and charming, the rooms felt a bit... More

Lovely hotel, staff are extremely friendly and will always go the extra mile for you. Location is far enough away from the main commercial area, but it's a straight walk up via independenza... Which mitigates slightly

I spent 3 days in Bologna for business and I enjoyed the atmosphere of Il Guercino. My room was ok, but my colleague had a super-OK luxury room! In any case I was fully satisfied. The breakfast was very good, with interesting products from the local area. The personnel was very kind. Position is very good, just 5 minutes walking... More

It was a great experience spending a couple of nights in this hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the room was really nice for the price we paid and the breakfast was more than decent. Also, the design of the hotel is memorable and it has such a cosy feeling to it. Moreover, it is just a 10... More

Hotel was good, well located close to the train station. The room was simple and good and covers what is needed. Breakfast was ok as well. Staff are helpful. The only bad thing is that there was bad smell coming out of the toilet. Otherwise hotel was good.

This is a cute little hotel located pretty centrally in the heart of Bologna. On foot it is 5min from the Central Railway Station, less than 10min from the Bus station and about 20min from Plazza del Nettuno which is the very centre of the Old Town. The style and architecture take you back in time in a positive way.... More
