When the cab took me to this hotel, I was not sure whether I was in the right hotel since according to booking.com it is called Art Hotel. Anyway, the location is very close to the center plaza and the famous fountain. Bologna is much smaller that I expected and it seems all the major spots are around the hotel.... More

A nice, a bit oldfashioned hotel, right next to the piazza maggiore in the historic centre of Bologna. Nice room, good service, friendly staff. Fine museums, local bars and great restaurants, all within easy walking distance. Loved it!

This June was my family's second stay at the Commercianti. My mother and I stayed together two years prior, and when we were invited to visit a friend in Bologna, there was never a doubt in my mind where we would stay. I simply called and booked a rooms for now three of us. This review covers both stays as... More

Sadly, I am unable to comment on the hotel as we never got to stay there ! Having booked a 3 night stay (10th - 13th July) in a deluxe room through www.booking.com in December 2014 we received an email from the hotel on 5th July informing us that the hotel would be closed for refurbishment. The hotel offered to... More

I stayed here for six nights and was very comfortable. The room was a very good size, and was immaculately cleaned daily. Some upgrades to fixtures would make for a nicer finish as cheap plastic ones undermine the rich aesthetic of the room (eg plastic towel holders, and racks, etc.). Likewise all public areas of the hotel were spotless. Most... More

Great location in a building that is fresh and modern but with distinct ties to past eras. The floors are beautifully appointed as is the Lobby and Breakfast Room. I totally enjoyed my visit and highly recommend that you experience Bologna from a perch at the Art Hotel Commercianti. No issues, but I would rate the staff members that I... More

This hotel is hidden in the back of the city center. I did not like it. The room was too small and the bathroom had a weird smell when i first entered. There is no room service as there is no kitchen. The morning breakfast was good but I was here for work so I couldn't really sit down and... More

What a wonderful hotel. Quirky, yet with original medieval features. Great breakfasts and very friendly staff. We were upgraded, so our room became a suite with a balcony. Terrific - and Bologna is such a fun place, it really deserves to be better known in the UK. We could have stayed a week easily. The adjacent customer garage is a... More

We stayed here for 8 nights in total in June. The hotel was very centrally located and on a quiet street just off the main square Piazza Magiore. The rooms are quite compact but has everything you would need but you do need a room with a balcony as this isn't guaranteed. The hotel is definitely very traditional. The air... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. we picked this hotel for its location, very central yet in a quiet street. There was an issue with the TV in our room and as it could not be sorted we were moved quickly to another room. Staff was very friendly and helpful at all times.
