We decided to spend two days in Bologna at the end of our trip but had no great expectations - so we were enormously surprised and pleased with the city - no crowds, amazing restaurants, unique shopping (more than the usual international chain stores), interesting historical sights. What made our time especially wonderful was this hotel. Al Capello Rossi is... More

What a delightful hotel! Each room a unique little jewel - we were in the BILBOLBUL room - clean neat & comfortable. The hotel is just a quick walk to the Piazza Maggiore. The staff was incredibly helpful (big shout out to Yarno). Their restaurant is small but packs a terrific breakfast (heard from other guests that dinner there was... More

This staff handled everything from room change to umbrellas to wheelchair for my elderly father with care. Great location steps from piazza maggiore. Not for people looking for nice lobby and front desk. This is slightly awkward space with odd contemporary furnishings.

Very central, convenient location, everything you'd need within easy walking distance. My "room" turned out to be a whole apartment, larger than my California home! Large bedroom, bathroom, full kitchen, 2 dining spaces, large living room. Pay the extra 10 euros for lovely hot breakfast buffet in hotel cafe! Staff extremely helpful & multilingual. Hotel was closing for week of... More

We found The Al Cappello Rosso whilst searching for a hotel in Bologna, for our Honeymoon. Not knowing anything about Bologna beyond the Tourist information, we chose the hotel based on it's vicinity to the main square (Piazza Maggiore) and the themed bedrooms/suites. When we arrived in Bololgna we immediately had 'lost' luggage issues. The staff at the hotel helped... More

We stayed in the Olivetti room and it was much better that the one which we had been booked in at a greater price as although smaller it had natural light, rather than being under the eaves. Staff were helpful but one did not like the comments I made about our difficulties getting there by car from the airport as... More

Booked for a night in the apartment from Expedia. No info provided when booking to advise that the apartment is actually in separate building to the hotel - until we receive the email confirmation (after paying) Very disappointed upon arrival to find that the apartment is quite a walk away from the main hotel, in a totally separate building where...

Dear Mr Paplow, first of all thank you for the review. We are sorry that you did not have all the infos upon reservation. We have already asked Expedia to solve the problem with the apartments' descriptions: they have some setting problems that they will try to overcome so as to make the description more complete. We really care about... More

Each room in this hotel has a different theme and design. We stayed in one that decorated by graphic novel artists. Not only were there framed illustrations but there were also illustrations on the walls. It was quite neat. There was a "Click" drawn next to the light switch. The bed was comfortable, The bathroom was quite nice and the... More

This hotel is very close to the centre of Bologna so it is very convenient for sight seeing. The hotel itself is very comfortable. Our room was on first floor over reception. It was quite despite looking out over the side street in font of hotel and being opposite the lift. The beds were comfortable, the air conditioning worked well... More

Dear Arjem, we are so happy you had a nice stay at the hotel. It is wonderful to read such a great review, and we are particularly pleased about the linen: we changed it a few months ago, so you confirm it was a good choice. As for the WIFI we have changed the provider and we will shortly be... More
