Let me start with the positive notes: the hotel is conveniently located close to the train station and the interior design is unconventional and interesting. Now on a more critical note: the location unfortunately means that the rooms (at least the one I stayed in) overlook a horrible intersection ('piazza' xx settembre) between a 5 lanes and a 6 lanes...

Your review has left stunned my business partner Carlo and me. The only explanation that we can give us is that it refers to the period of the previous management . No one has to wait until we arrive because, as you rightly said, it is necessary to communicate the approximate time of arrival (as usual for a B&B). Even... More

The images on the hotel web site are misleading and inaccurate. My husband and I arrived at the B&B on 20th Sept and having booked online for 4 nights (cost £638 euros) had to leave after sticking it out for two nights. On being allocated to our room, I was extremely disappointed to find the standard of accommodation less than... More

Dear guest sorry you have not enjoyed your stay with us. I am very sorry especially as it is the first time, in more than two years of opening of the structure, that are raised complaints of this type. Never a guest complained of an hygienic speech , but on the contrary housekeeping is praised and extolled both words either... More

This accommodation has a very convenient location. It is a very short walk from the train station and it works well for an overnight stay. Locating the property is not straightforward as there is no Hotel sign. This is a building where an apartment has been converted to Hotel with 4 bedrooms and a tiny area for the kitchen and... More

A lovely newly designed Hip Hotel / apartment which gives you the feeling of waking up at home. However, something must be done to make it easier for tourists to find. We spent around 45 minutes trying to find the hotel as there are no signs at all. We asked over 10 Italians and no one had any idea as... More

We enjoyed a nights stay at this stylish and modern b&b. The location is particularly convenient for the train station and a short walk from the city centre down one of bolognas main streets. Breakfast was fresh, great coffee and helpful staff.

Il B di Bologna is charmingly stylish, with a great location and delightful hosts, Carlo and Alessandro, who definitely go the extra mile to make sure your stay is comfortable and relaxing. We were two couples staying for two nights, and loved the relaxed atmosphere, the 'designer' breakfast, with chopped fresh fruit, lots of little bowls of this and that,... More

Thanks a lot for a very nice stay in a amazingly designed hotel with amazing new owners. Friendly, quality and esthetic atmosphere, central to the touristic center 2 min walk from the train station, character building- the total opposite of a ugly square, sterile and impersonal hotel. See you soon again!

Ideal for couples, a few metres from the train station and 10-15 minutes walk from the historic center. Lovely breakfast with croissants, bread, jams, curd cheese, joghurts, fresh fruit, fruit jiuces, cereals and the usual coffee and teas. Up date: if arriving at Bologna station, turn left, cross first street (corner Giacomo Matteotti / XX Septembre) and the hotel is... More
