I stayed here for three nights. The rooms are small and have a funky smell. Like stale cigarettes. The breakfast is very processed, but it's included which is good. Coming from Australia, the coffee was terrible, but the enthusiasm made up for it - the staff in the dining area are overly kind... I think they must be students trying... More

Booked in as part of a group & had a fantastic stay. Loved the old style bedrooms, buffet breakfast was super with the choices available. Great location for touring the city . Great restaurants/bars/shopping - just a short walk away. If you dont feel like walking the hotel offers a nice retreat for a quiet drink in the many nooks... More

I have to say I stayed in this hotel a few years ago and the I don't remember it ever being so noisy. The church bells finished at 11pm and started back again at 6am. Between that you had the students singing, screaming and shouting. Was the worst nights sleep ever, on rock hard beds.

Very well located hotel, convenient for all places of interest, about 15 minutes from train/bus stations and if you are visiting for the opera, just a 2 minute walk away. The hotel is very well maintained, spotlessly clean and all the staff were very polite, friendly and extremely helpful. There is a lovely roof terrace for relaxing after a hard... More

I very much liked the location of the hotel as well as the interest and help of the reception in finding a wonderful restauant in the city. But what a bad sound insulation !! Each sound and move of the people in the room above ours as well as those in the left and right rooms is clearly heard. This... More

This hotel is ideally situated in the city centre near the towers. You will have no difficulty to find an interesting walk or a bar or a restaurant nearby. The house is a bit old, but nice. Do not expect the modern keycard for your room, here it is still working with the "old" keys. Room is confortable (at least... More

Stayed at the Best Western San Donato for 2 nights and I must say what a superb hotel this is. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, brilliant breakfast and the location was ideal for bars, restaurants and shopping.

This hotel is generally very nice. It has a delicious breakfast in the top floor-balcony with nice view. Rooms are comfortable enough. Everything is in close walking distance. But the woman in the receptionist is very rude and ironic with no reason at all.

This hotel is good in many ways. First of all it could not be more central. Great bars and restaurants in the area. Receptionist was very friendly and helpful. My single room was very small and bad value for €93 for one night. Breakfast was very good and great variety. I could not believe that in Bologna, Italy the hotel... More
