This is the antithesis of the chain hotel. It is a jumble of rooms around a pretty garden situated in a quiet street that is easy walking distance from Bologna's principal sites. Guests are made to feel very welcome. Breakfast is superb, and can be eaten on a pretty terrace. Beds are comfortable. Our room was slightly oddly laid out... More

At first, we were concerned that the hotel was on the opposite side of town where the train station is located. This concerned us as we planned to use Bologna as a central location from which we could visit surrounding towns such as Modena and Ravenna. Our plan was to take the train each day to visit a town once... More

My sister and I stayed 3 nights in this lovely hotel on our first trip to Bologna. Staff extremely helpful and pleasant. Lovely courtyard area and breakfast room. Amazing selection at breakfast including daily homemade cakes or biscuits made by the staff. Good location...easy walk to main areas of Bologna. Room pleasant and clean with firm but comfortable beds.

Tiny and unassuming on the outside, and just a bit difficult to find, this is on the inside a large and well-run hotel, and a great place to stay. If you spot a blue parking spot as you approach, or one just past the hotel, grab it, and bless your luck. Tell the hotel that you have a spot and... More

After reading all of the great reviews, we decided to stay here. What a great choice we made! Roberto and his staff are some of the nicest people that we have ever met! They always took the time to answer questions and make great suggestions for food or tourist attractions. They arranged pizza deliveries, cabs, and even printed our boarding... More

The hotel lies within the old city walls, making it a short walk to the city centre (Bologna has lots to offer in terms of history; we enjoyed a two hour guide to the University, Cathedral and some of the best gelato shops in town.) We arrived at Porta San Mamolo late in the evening. That might be the reason... More

An excellent hotel, on a fairly quiet street, easy walking distance to major sights and with excellent restaurants close by. The staff was friendly and helpful. My room, overlooking the street in front, wasn't one of the best but was more than adequate and surprisingly quiet given the location.
