This hotel is an excellent value - just outside the walled city, superb breakfast - the best we had on our entire trip. Our room had a nice balcony. Hotel staff were terrific. Easy if you have a car - secure or street parking, and incredibly close to the train station. We would definitely stay here again.

Good breakfast. Great staff both in the reception and those serving breakfast. Breakfast quality was okay. The room was great with a balcony. The balcony was something we have not had during our first leg of the tour so it was fantastic. The staff in the reception was very welcoming and helped us with information on tourist sites to visit.... More

Good: staff, public areas, near train station,breakfast. Bad: slightly on wrong side of the tracks, a bit of a walk Into town, shabby bedroom. We stayed in the Flower Suite which was big with a double bedroom, a twin bedroom and a space with a sofa bed. So enough room comfortably for five. But it was a bit shabby,had electricals... More

Excellent hotel. Great location, good staff, excellent room. Good breakfast, quiet neighborhood, exceptional city. I submit to all the Trip Advisor, was one of the best hotels we stayed in Italy, considering the cost-benefit.

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
