Just came from a 5 day visit to Bologna. Our visit would not have been complete without our stay at Hotel Il Guercino Bologna. We had rather a difficult start, as our luggage was not delivered and we had it delivered it the day after. We found a lot of help, especially from a particular receptionist (unfortunately I do not... More

We were so pleased to have found this hotel when we visited Bologna last September. For the price you pay, we could not fault it. It was brilliant value compared to other hotels in the area. The train station is about 10 minutes walk away and the centre is a pleasant 20 minutes walk, but lots of shops and people... More

If I tell you that “Il Guercino” is near the train station you could imagine an ugly place catering to low income travelers. If I add that is is 15 minutes walking from downtown Bologna you can figure walking on a non descript neighborhood! Both images are false! The area where IL Guercino is located is residential with pretty nice... More

We stayed here for 10 days, the first room (206) the bathroom was small and the shower had a poor power when it came to the warm setting. By the 7th day, we had NO warm water at all so mentioned it at reception and were told it was due to everyone else having a shower at the same time,... More

I found this hotel by chance. Very good value, within walking distance of city centre, the trade fair (Fiera) and the main railway station. Comfortable room, very good shower. The staff extremely welcoming and helpful. good breakfast selection. Peaceful courtyard where one can sit and hear "the sounds of Italy". It has the added advantage of having an excellent restaurant... More

Good location, 10 minutes on foot from the central square and shopping district of Bologna. Friendly, helpful staff, always ready to answer any question. Generous breakfast with incredibly good pastries. My room was well appointed, a little small but still more than sufficient. Will stay here again when in the city.
