We can only confirm the positive reviews. Since very sensitive to noise, our main thing is peace and quiet, and the hotel delivered. Central yet secluded; our room on the fourth floor was a little oasis. Extra fun - books left behind by previous visitors, a menu of pillows, and a reasonably priced restaurant in the hotel, with good quality... More

Wow!!! I stayed one night at Al Cappello Rosso in Bologna. It is located in the very heart of the town, just a minute from the main square. The staff at the hotel is very friendly and professional. The rooms are beautiful, elegant and very well furnished. I stayed only one night but I had everything. The bed was so... More

This turned out to be a surprising find in the heart of Bologna. While the room was a bit "mod" for my taste, it was extremely large and comfortable. Our beautiful bathroom had a great rooftop view. We left the window open to hear the bells of the city chiming. Beds were off the chart comfy. Now, the breakfast room... More

Really close to the central square, but in a quiet street. The ground floor is a but grungy, but don`t let it put you off. All the rooms are unique, so try to pre-reserve the room you like. We had the pink room which was odd, but good. Nice bathrooms. The cafe / restaurant attached is good - but then... More

This charming hotel is wonderfully located only 150 metres from the Piazza Maggiore in the heart of Bologna. All staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke good to excellent English. We thought the hotel provided superb value for money given the standard of accommodation, the service provided and the quality of the food in the restaurant. A perfect choice... More

My first stay here at Al Cappello Rosso and I enjoyed the experience. The hotel is at the heart of the medieval city centre, a stone's throw from Piazza Maggiore and the Palazzo Populare. My room was not over-large, but furnished with an excellent bed, good quality linen and plenty of nice touches, like embroidered bath robe & towels. There... More

Loved Bologna and loved this hotel. Comfy beds, large bathroom, PERFECT location and simply great. The square is right outside your doorstep, and the people behind the front desk could not be more lovely. Hope to return soon, thank you!!

We spent 12 nights at Al Cappello Rosso over the holidays and thoroughly enjoyed our stay and our time in Bologna and the Emilia-Romagna. Our room was fun, clean and the location in the historic center was fantastic. We used Bologna as a base to explore the Emilia-Romagna and this hotel was a great place to recharge. Breakfast was fantastic,... More

Conviently situated in the centre of the old town and a few minuets from the main square. This hotel is small but offers al the main facilities you would expect from a 4 star hotel .Although this hotel is rated as 4 star i would only give it 3.5 stars, the service was good but the breakfast is served in...

This is a well-run hotel in an airy and cheerful space. While the lobby is small and unassuming, the hotel provides all the amenities for an enjoyable visit. Our room was bright with an Olivetti typewriter theme. It was clean and spacious (by European standards). Breakfast was not included but it was available at the small restaurant (osteria) inside the... More
