We were 2 couples who had 4 nights bed and breakfast. The good points-excellent position near to the 2 towers, excellent breakfast, good staff, lovely roof top terraces and good 'free' wifi,,nice snacks with the hotel drinks. 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

After a white knuckle taxi ride from the Airport - the Driver was, we think, wanting to impress us with his knowledge of the city and high speed manoeverings around the tiny cobbled streets in the heart of the Old Town- we arrived at Best Western San Donato. It is brilliantly situated in the Student Quarter of the old town,... More

Right in the center of Bologna. Great value, fabulous views from the breakfast and rooftop terraces (though not from the single room I was in), full and decent breakfast. Rooms a bit small, but no complaints for the price. Very clean and quiet. Decor a bit old style, but that's fine. I would definitely stay here again!

First of all - great latte macchiato (although not unusual for this country), but together with the nice mornings and the views to enjoy, this old centre building hotel has impressed. No-frills but cheerful service, ideal location.

We spent three nights in this hotel. The rooms are good and clean and you'll find a rooftop with a nice view over the city. The location is perfect for sightseeing. Everything is in walking distance. They also have a good parking lot, if your on a roadtrip. Only downside: The rooms are not very soundproof.

this hotel is in the heart of the historic district of bologna. You walk right out the door and find pizza, gelato and wine just a few steps away. the staff was very helpful. The breakfast had many choices and the staff was very attentive. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel

You get what you pay for - this hotel had excellent staff, very good breakfasts, good wine in bar!, and great views from bar balcony. The selling point is the absolutely central location - near to everything you'd want to see in Bologna, and only about 20 mins walk from train station. Room was a little small, bathroom also, but...

..right at the heart of Bologna. Really nice, friendly and helpful staff throughout and especially at Breakfast. Surprised to get a single bed ( don't see those much nowadays) but it was comfortable and clean, with nice little touches. It was a small room but had a double private terrace and was quiet at night given the location ( I... More

Nice hotel in the heart of Bologna. An a walking distance of all must-see's and surrounded by restaurants and pubs. The rooms were clean and large enough. Bathroom good but no luxury. Shower was a bit cramped. Beds and linen were OK. Breakfast very good for an Italian hotel. Friendly and helpfull staff. Ask for a room at the backside... More
