We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights for my Mum's 50th birthday. The triple room was a good size, very clean and had a small mini bar/teas/coffees and a safe. It also had a window overlooking a lovely little courtyard. Beds were really comfortable. Staff in the hotel were so helpful and friendly at all times making the hotel... More

We stayed at the Il Guercino from April 8-10 and really couldn't fault this hotel. It is set in a secluded courtyard yet still just a very easy walk to Bologna Central station. It took us around 15 minutes to walk to the Piazza Maggiore and the Two Towers. Our room was very well maintained and nicely decorated (we were... More

I needed a break from my busy life in London, this hotel was perfect calm and relaxing environment. The staffs are great too considering I don't know a word in Italian, they helped me find good restaurant, shopping centres. It was absolutely great.

This is one of the cosiest hotel in Bologna, very appealing from the outside unlike most other hotels which look very severe and unappealing. This is a hotel run with love, the interior is very homely, the breakfast room just lovely and cute, very clean and delicious breakfast. We had booked a superior room but it happened to be less...

Reading some of the other reviews, I thought that this would have been a decent hotel. Unfortunately I think the hotel is a story of two halves. The front end appears to look out on a courtyard and has a lift. The second half where we stayed, looks onto other apartments and you have to use stairs which just meant... More

I agree about the staff, they were very helpful and friendly. Room was comfortable, we stayed 4 nights and used the railway on two occasions which was about 10 minute walk away. Used a recommended restaurant and this lived up to the billing (Papa Re)

I stayed here when visiting Italy while attending the F1 and MOTO GP, using Bologna as a mid way stopping point. This hotel is lovely and the staff are very helpful. The location is slightly out of the centre but an easy walk to all the restaurants and shops. The hotel’s decoration is very unique and interesting. The room was... More

We stayed here for quite many nights, and it was lovely. Located close to the center, and also it was easy to use the bus (tper works so wonderful, easy - but remember to to buy tickets before entering the bus). The area was quiet, so no night clubs etc. Rooms are quite small, but very clean. Bed was good,... More

The decor is interesting and original although may not be to everyone's taste. The room we had didn't have a great deal of light. However the bed was very comfortable, had plenty of storage space, tea/coffee making facilities (unusual for Italy) a nice bathroom and well maintained by the staff. Breakfast was good and, at the price we paid, amazing... More
