Nice hotel, with clean rooms, excellent reception desk, and ac and elevator. Close to town center and train station! Stayed there in June when temperatures were 95 degrees, so the air conditioning was a plus!

My room was at the front overlooking a couple of popular bars/ cafes and the delivery side of Zara, it was noisy. My promised in room safe deposit box was not there... More

Our family of four stayed here and found it clean, spacious enough for four, and in a very good location. It's close to shops and restaurants and the breakfast service is very well done. The staff is awesome and very helpful. We had trouble with a shower that wouldn't drain but they resolved it quickly. The facility is clean and... More

I have stayed at this hotel 5 times and always look forward to my next visit. The staff is accommodating, the rooms clean and the location optimal. The breakfast is very good with a large selection to choose from. There is a lovely small garden to sit and relax in away from the noise of the city.

We were stranded with our car on the Autostrada near Modena on the 15th of August.. The Dutch ANWB (ACI) arranged for us a flight home the next day from Bologna. Our car would be transported to The Netherlands, since it was a national holiday and there were no rental cars available, and the garages closed. We called the hotel.... More

I booked this hotel based on an article about Bologna in the NY Times and on reviews on Trip Advisor. My young adult daughter and I stayed a week in Bologna and found this hotel to be just what we needed. The hotel itself is very appealing, modern and minimalist in style. Staff was friendly, professional, very responsive to requests.... More

Roberto took us round to the apartment and it was lovely and clean and spacious. We had a problem with the air... More

Hotel was very easy to find by foot/close to Bologna Centrale train station; it was centrally located and close to restaurants (Il Moro), shopping and piazzas.
