Lovely place! Accommodations were spot on with a lovely ensuite! The view to the right was of the two towers! Friendly (but not English speaking) people to assist with check -in and breakfast. I believe they also live onsite. We were able to communicate without too much trouble. Located in the center of Old Town - not near the train... More

We returned to Bologna for a lovely six night stay at the Garisenda. Our room was large and sparkling clean and the cost was a bargain. A morning cappuccino and a sweet roll in the breakfast room are the perfect way to start the day. We always feel very comfortable, welcome, and well-cared-for at the Garisenda. The location is so...

We stayed at the Garisenda for three nights, the location is perfect for a stay in Bologna. The room was a good size and the bathroom adequate. Breakfast was basic, the coffee fantastic. My only problem was the room with its wonderful view of the two towers was noisy at night. Closing the window certainly cut out all the street... More

Albergo Garisenda is so central to Bologna that the two towers in the centre are right outside your window (and the leaning one is leaning away form the hotel so no need to worry there). This is a small family run hotel on the third floor with a lift. The owners are only too happy to give you tips on... More

I was really surprise as i entered the Garisenda. It is a beautiful, calm Boutique hotel in the city center of Bologna. For a really good price you get a nice and clean room, a breakfast and very good service from the owner. I made a round trip through italy and this spot was one of the best stays of... More

This place really exceeded our expectations--incredibly clean, big room, comfy bed, ceiling fan, beautiful view of the center of Bologna from our windows, and a great price. It was quieter than we expected, given its location, and we slept incredibly well. Breakfast was good and fast--great cappuccino, yogurt, etc. You couldn't ask for a better location, in the middle of... More

Third visit to Bologna. Chose this hotel according to Tripadvisor reviews, and LOCATION. Even so, am finding the location so amazing that I am thrilled to bits. Have an internal room without street view, so very quiet, and still very Italian view out the window. Basically, we can't believe our luck. Small and quiet, large comfortable room, safe, safe, safe.... More

We just spent 5 nights at Albergo Garisenda. We have been staying there twice a year since 2003. It's small and the same family has run it for the past 50 years. The rooms are brilliantly clean and all have very high ceilings and ceiling fans. If you are in a room on the street side, you will open your... More

I stayed here for three days and four nights and was really happy with the whole experience.It is better than other professional hotels of the town that I have stayed in. All the staff members had been superb and tended to my every need. Rooms are big, clean and nicely decorated. Food and services are the best. I could not... More

I was lucky to nab the last room available in this great little hotel. The double room I stayed in was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The owner was really friendly and I enjoyed my breakfast with the perfect cappuccino. The shared bathroom and toilets were also clean, so no problems there. It's in a great location, close to the...
