I stayed here for two nights with my family. We booked a family room which turned out to be a normal double room with a bunk bed style sofa bed. So very cramped, particularly with over-excited three and six year olds! The bathroom was one of the smallest I have ever come across in a hotel, no bath only an... More

Our room was small but we did not mind too much as you really only sleep there at the end of the day.... Bologna is a beautify town. This hotel is a few minutes walk to the main street L Independenza. My family loved that we could walk everywhere. We took the bus to explore some parts of Bologna. Love... More

We had a fabulous and modern room on the 4th floor which included a great terrace. The room was really high tech, and had a cool and modern bathroom too. The air con was brilliant, and even nearly silent, which was important as it was extremely hot in Bologna during our stay. The hotel was in the in the old... More

Really enjoyed our stay here and loved Bologna in general. The hotel is just 10 minutes walk to the lively centre of Bologna. There are a couple of cool bars just adjacent to the hotel (no loud music, thankfully) that serve a free buffet when you buy a drink (think Italian tapas. There is a reason this hotel is so... More

This was our first trip to Bologna and we felt very lucky that we chosen this hotel. It is right in the heart of city center, right at the very heart of the shopping area. You have plenty of options for food. Piazza Maggiore is just 10 minutes walk along with other monuments of the city. Everyone at the reception... More

We stopped here for 3 nights and booked a Superiour Double through Venere. Firstly let me say that the staff are all great and exceeding helpful and the location is perfect, but that's as far as it goes for this hotel I'm afraid. I have informed Venere that the photographs on there web site and this hotels web site are... More

Lovely modern hotel in the centre of Bologna. Only a 7 minute walk from the station which my husband and I managed well with 4 children & luggage (and rain!). We stayed in June 2015 and were very happy with the wonderful welcome, lovely breakfast and kind service. The breakfast area is a little small so it was tricky maneuvering... More

Very nice hotel in the centre of Bologna. A short walk to Maggiore. Very friendly and helpful staff, nice rooms. Situated on a busy side street, with lots of bars and restaurants around. Try to get a room on the third floor, not facing onto Via Dell' Indipendenza.

Booked Hotel as part of a 3 centre holiday through Citalia who we have used before. This is the first part. Allocated room 110 which is best described as a Box in the centre of the first floor. There is no window as such apart from one which looks directly on to 4 blank walls and what looks like a... More

We godt one of the apartments in the back yard and it was just wonderful. Huge, cozy, romantic and trendy at the same time. Good breakfast, wonderful staff and the location is just perfect. Right in the middle of the main street. Highly recommanded.
