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

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
