The best thing about the hotel is its location, particularly if you are visiting the University. All the places that you would want to visit in the city are within walkable distance from this hotel. The hotel and the rooms are a bit worn out and the bathroom is a bit cramped. Service was good and the staff are helpful.

Spent a weekend here. The shower was incredibly small. The bed was very firm. However the staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good although the breakfast room was small making for some entertaining overheard conversations. Reasonable location not too far from the toweres and center of thw city. The university is nearby. Reasonably priced.

Located in a lovely part of Bologna. The hotel was clean, rooms are a good size, and the staff are very helpful. The hotel was recommended in one of my travel guides and it was spot on. There are some nice bars and restaurants nearby. The room was a decent size and overlooked the street. The staff were friendly and... More

I recently stayed at the hotel for two nights on a trip to see the exhibitions in the city with my daughter. I have to say the hotel was lovely, rooms and facilities were clean and homely, staff were extremely helpful and food was great. The hotel is ideally situated to explore on foot the whole of the city. We... More

Stayed there for one night. I woke up at 4am because of cold. The outside temperature was +3 but the heating was off. When I asked the lady at the front desk to help me with it she muttered in half-Italian-half-English that she couldn't help me and went away. The bedclothes had blood stains from the previous guests. The location... More

Usually, we don't comment the ratings because everyone is free to do the considerations he want (we not claim to please everyone) but we can not accept being told things completely false. The night receptionist has verified the effective malfunction of the heating at 04:00 in the morning. While not finding a cold temperature in the room (the guest is... More

Stayed two nights here whilst looking for student accommodation for our daughter. It's clean and tidy, the water's hot and the air condoning works well. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We did think it was very noisy outside at night but, overall, it was good value for money. As long as you're not expecting The Ritz for the... More

Good value hotel, close to many attractions. Comfortable and friendly. A little noisy in the street at times but that's because it's near the university and there are a lot of young people about giving the area vibrancy.

Overall we had a very enjoyable stay. Good points: - great location: under 10 min walk to city centre. Wonderful selection of restaurants and bars around the hotel. The osteria just a few doors up ("the bear") served excellent (and great value) dinner. - friendly and helpful staff at the reception - free wifi in the hotel. We had no... More
