What a gem of a find for this updated, artsy, comfortable, modern, plentiful amenities, and outstanding service from check in to check out! Perfect location and a one of a kind experience. A must stay if coming to Bologna. Can not stress the superb treatment, kindness, and professionalism.

We choose to stay in one of their apartments which is in a separate building (shopping center below) adjacent to their Hotel. It was very convenient because you were able to register with the Hotel & a staff member was delegated to travel with us to the apartment (some distance in the car because of one way streets), assist with...

Very small, no room to swing a cat let alone open more than one case. Tiny bathroom with loo seat hanging off,v small combo bath shower... More

Dear Guest, Wow! What a funny review. Just to try and show that you may have described something completely different from our hotel: The first room you were shown is a superior room: as a courtesy we thought a free upgrade would be a nice surprise at arrival. After 35 days the hotel opened back on 1st September after setting... More

This hotel is two mins walk from Piazza Maggiore, close to restaurants and walking distance from central Bologna. Although we arrived at the hotel before check in time the room was ready for us. We were nicely welcomed by the receptionist and were given a city centre map. Bit disappointed with the room after reading about the themed rooms. Our... More

Although we arrived at the hotel well before check in time, the room was ready for us. We were nicely welcomed by the receptionist and were given a city centre map and a brief explanation of how to get to Stadio Dall Ara where we were attending a concert that same evening. The room was a bit disappointing as we... More

Quaint hotel in a great location! We were able to walk to all the major attractions easily from this hotel. The rooms are a bit small but the bathrooms are nice. We had an interesting room that had character drawings of Orchestra Composers by a famous musician and artist. It was really different and unusual. The hotel is a bit... More

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
