Perfect location, execellent staff. Very good service at the reception. Helped me and my daughter with printouts, scanning, translating documents and so on. All without any extracosts. Clean and tidy room. I can really recommend a visit.

A bit difficult to find. Centrally placed near to not so straight towers. Calm and cool with a nice staff and reasonable prices. A bit crowdy at breakfast, but all in all acceptable. Can be recommended.

Brilliant central situation (just near the 'Due Torri'), friendly and helpful reception staff. Our room had a balcony (although, bizarrely, without any seats or a table on it); there's also an outdoor terrace for breakfast that has a magnificent view of the two towers; and a top-floor terrace (that has a few loungers and some seats and tables- but no...

Had a wonderful experience! Clean room, fabulous breakfast, quiet, great price and great location! The roof top patio had 360 views of the city. The patio for breakfast had amazing views as well! The service at breakfast was superb. We got cappuccinos with pretty writing on top. There was everything you would want!

Excellent hotel in the centre of Bologna. Welcoming staff and perfectly functional room. The position is great for sightseeing and restaurants are plentiful. Charming rooftop breakfast area and generous breakfast buffet. Air conditioning was a lifesaver in blistering heat!

The hotel is in a great location right in Bologna's historic centre. From the breakfast balcony in the morning we could see the rooftops of Bologna including the medieval towers and domes of churches. Breakfast was an excellent affair with everything you could want. The room was pleasant and clean. Beds were comfy enough. The bathroom was a decent size... More

Hotel couldn't have been more central. Near to a variety of sites, bars, cafe's and restaurants. And if you like shopping there are plenty of stores and not the world wide brand names. The hotel was only minutes walk away from the 'Leaning Bell tower' which actually looks like it will fall into the standing next to it. Being a... More

Unfortunately; there is no category between average and very good, hence the title. So the upgrade to very good is on the instructions of Mrs D.! We had a mixed experience. The hotel is perfectly located for sightseeing around the city and has two roof terraces which overlook the city. The second floor terrace is where the bar and breakfast... More

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.
