The hotel itself is very clean and modern. I loved having wifi and working ac in the room. The staff was great and very helpful whenever we asked for restaurant recommendations or directions. The hotel is in a great location. They have a couple of bars right next door, and it is a short walk to the major attractions of... More

We were upgraded to 2 apartments which are a couple of blocks away. Gorgeous, slick accommodations. Helpful staff when inquiring about dinner reservations. I would definitely stay here again. We walked fro the train station and many restaurants close by.

The early 20th cent building is furnished with in contemporary style. Great interior design - great form and function. Dont miss the patio next to the breakfast room. A 10 minute walk... More

The location of this hotel was superb. Just off of the main street in downtown Bologna. Easy to walk to everywhere. The people at the front desk were simply wonderful. They made the stay very nice. A small complaint: wi-fi was not working well at all, to the dismay of my teenage daughter. We used the lobby to access but... More

I stay here regularly on business, and it is always a pleasure. The staff are always charming and helpful, it really makes a different to see a friendly, smiley face when you return from business in a foreign city. The rooms are amazing, the suites in particular are just incredible. I always have a great night sleep. The cleanliness of... More

Excellent location in the heart of the city. Everything is within walking distance. The staff was helpful and courteous. The room was clean and in excellent condition. The breakfast was good with many options-probably more than most. Wifi was a bit slow and cut out from time to time. Otherwise very pleasant stay and would return if back in Bologna.

If you are looking for a hotel with good internet, this is not the hotel for you. The internet is slower then a snail. And when you ask about solutions they don't have a proper way to help you because there English is pritty broken and they don't understand you properly
