We recently stayed here for 4 nights, and couldn't have been happier. Great location, great staff, good breakfast to start the day, right near the two towers, a block from the heart of the University, nice clean well appointed rooms, good wifi service, Great observsation deck for a panorama view of the city. Would go back in a heartbeat!

The location is excellent. Even though the rooms were on the smallish side and could do with a little updating,the rooms were spotless and everything wored well.The staff was very pleasant and and all so helpful. Breakfast was great as well. To be recommended.

Best Western - not where I would normally stay either in the US or when travelling abroad - but in this case, it was a great choice. Every person at the hotel seemed happy to see me - from the front desk to the cleaning personnel and the people behind the bar. Front desk folks were very helpful - and... More

Lovely hotel in the middle of it all. Great breakfast selection and service. There is a lovely terrace to enjoy breakfast on or even a cheeky bottle of red at the end of a long day sightseeing. Not far form anything, cheap eats, local restaurants, piazza's. Perfect

We had an excellent stay over a long weekend. The location is perfect, although if your room is at the front of the hotel noise might just be a problem. There is a lovely second floor terrace bar where you can also take breakfast, and the views from the fourth floor terrace are good. Our room was unspectacular, but perfectly... More

Great hotel typical Best Western. Good size room, plenty of room to move. We had a balcony which overlooked the piazza noise was not an issue from outside a little from other customers to the hotel. Breakfast was included and this was great. There is free coffee if you like between certain times and it is only black or white... More

Great location for touring the city on foot. Very friendly staff. Plenty of choice in very pleasant breakfast room. Hotel could be missing a trick by not doing dinner, especially if they had a weather proof cover on the 4th floor.

We absolutely loved our stay at the San Donato! The location is excellent - near the towers and within walking distance of everything in the center and only a 15 - 20 minute walk to the train station, yet off on a side street so it didn't feel like it was swarming with people. The rooms are basic, but good... More

Each year we organise a European trip for a group and this year twenty five of us went to Bologna and stayed in this hotel. It is in a great location. The staff were all very helpful, particularly the dining room/bar staff. The rooms are fairly basic and the ones at the front of the hotel suffer from the noise... More
