The hotel is just 5 min walking from the Central railway station in Bologna and 20 min to the Main square. The hotel is very easy to find. We liked the diverse breakfast and the general atmosphere in the hotel as well. Our room was spacious and clean, with a nice view over the courtyard. Unfortunately, the bathroom had no... More

close to train station, you are gonna need 15' walk to reach central square. It is an old Inn totally renewed and with the addition of buildings. Room was small but with very modern decoration, bathroom also very modern but small. Very clean, it offers very very nice breakfast with excellent coffee. Very friendly and helpful staff.

The single room was tiny, but included everything that one can wish: e.g. a balcony to the courtyard, a fridge and a kettle. The breakfast was really delicious, especially the croissants. It has an easy access from Bologna railway station via the tunnel.

Although the hotel is a few blocks away from downtown, I recommend it because it's charming, comfortable and clean. Breakfast is very good (delicious cakes!) and the staff is very helpful and friendly.

I kind of like this hotel, I think. I'm not sure if I would rebook or not, but essentially it's kind of not bad. It's a bit quirky, but not at all way out; it's small enough to be almost boutiquey, but not quite and it's neither dated or modern. It's also certainly not perfect, but the failings are largely...

I had stayed here five years earlier, and the staff remembered me and made me very welcome. The bathrooms had been refurbished since my earlier stay, and although they were decent before, they are lovely now. The wifi worked well. The only thing I would change is that the bedspread in my room was very stiff and heavy, more for... More

Just returned from a 5 night stay at the hotel. Check in was fine though room was not available until 14.00 so we left bags in a secure side room. We were in room 104 on the first floor , the room faced a building site though we never heard much noise (which might be because we were out in... More

We stayed at this hotel last week with my wife. Our Italy trip started in Bologna. I have checked some trip advisor review and decided to stay there. The hotel is located very close to Bologna Termini. The area is safe and walking distance to downtown. Of course walking distance concept changes according to the travellers. We are a backpacker...

If this hotel were in a more walkable neighborhood this would be a 5-star review. The staff was helpful and the country themed breakfast room was cottage cute. Many breakfast choices were tucked in every corner of the room and if you need gluten-free (I'm sorry for you) but be sure to ask! They'll bring you a basket of packaged... More
