Our room was not large but had adequate hanging space, tea-making facilities, safe and a splendid view. We strolled through shady arcades and saw university students celebrating graduation day. Breakfasted outside with view of the Two Towers.

The hotel has onsite parking which was helpful. The views from the terrace are amazing. The location is excellent. The staff were polite and greeted us with smiles. The internet was problematic, I could not connect from my laptop and from my phone the speed was quite slow. The A/C in the room was barely functional.

Bologna is a very difficult city to get around in, with a car. Streets are narrow, with many being one way. Parking is minimal, if not non-existent. We found this hotel last minute, and felt very lucky. Once we were able to figure out how to get there, we were very pleased to find out they had their own, secure,... More

Small but comfortable rooms with adequate AC. Great breakfast included in price. Close to oldest university in world, central plaza and great restaurants. All staff speak English. Front desk staff is very good at helping guests find their way in this ancient city with its winding narrow streets. They even gave advice on a variety of running routes depending on... More

The Hotel is in the middle of the old town, perfectly place to walk around in the city. Nice rooms, and a rooftop terrace overlooking the old part of the town. Friendly staf, and parking in the yard. But it is hard to find by car, the streets are narrow and it is hard to find you way around. and... More

We stayed there for 2 nights and it was all wonderful - room was clean and spacious, view from the roof top left us breathless, good and free wifi connection and the most amazing breakfast we ever had, to be honest. Location of the hotel is perfect, in the centre of old town, we could see the leaning towers from... More

Points to improve-the photographs of the rooms in the website definitely show the best views, the shower cubicle was very cosy in size,... More

My exceptionally tiny single room had a huge unfurnished terrace. The room was spotlessly clean but the bathroom (v small shower cubicle) occasionally had an unpleasant whiff of drains. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and there was a good selection...coffee however was not good. The hotel is very well located in the center. It has a car park, but if... More
