This quirky hotel is in a historic building with first class location just off the Piazza Maggiore and within walking distance to restaurants and attractions, the downside being the area can be noisy at night. The staff were friendly and willing to give us advice and recommendations. A very good breakfast was served by a cheerful young lady in the... More

This is the friendliest hotel I have ever stayed at. The reception team couldn't do enough to help us and the restaurant staff went out especially for me and bought gluten free bread, rolls and teensy gorgeous cakes and biscuits. The room we stayed in was one of the decorated rooms and it was fantastic - so nice to have... More

An average hotel in a great location. We stayed for 4 nights in a standard room which was fairly small but typical European size I guess. One window that opened to a lane way which was a bit noisy and with kitchen staff smoking below not pleasant when you needed to open it to get some cool air (as air... More

Superb location; walk to sights, shopping, restaurants, and bars. Rooms are comfortable. Front desk service was a bit uneven; some personnel were warm and friendly and offered terrific recommendations, others were less enthusiastic. The hotel's restaurant is excellent for lunch and dinner; the pasta bolognese is spectacular; you can also get room service. When my wife and I visit Bologna... More

The location couldn´t be better, on a quiet street, just a few steps from the central Piazza, but still reachable by car. The staff is very attentive and helpful. The breakfast was an experience itself, in a friendly, charming atmosphere. I got a regular, non-themed room, which was very pleasing. The pillow-menu was put to service and suceeded. I would...

Dear Chris, thank you so much for your review. I am glad you enjoyed the stay at the apartment. I think that is a nice solution for families as you say, and also for long stays. I am sorry about your impression on our staff: all of us take very good care in the relationship with the guests and we... More

Just around the corner from Piazza Maggiore, this hotel is worth a visit if even for a night. I stayed in the Typewriter Room which was fantastic - a themed room decorated with Ray Bradbury quotes, a proper typewriter on the wall and keys on the ceiling (you'll just have to see for yourself). I must also note that it's... More

Cappello Rosso is a splendid boutique hotel, close to Piazza Maggiore, and worth every bit of its 4 star superiore designation. Very friendly and helpful staff (necessarily I suppose, since we were upgraded to a junior suite). The wife prefers twin beds as we thrash about a bit in our sleep. Staff were ready instantly to separate the beds in... More

One-night-only stay. Very down-town wonderful location. Hotel is little but nice and comfortable. People are friendly, breakfast is Italian style and cappuccino is super. Price is not cheaper, but it is down-town Bologna.
