This is an unpretentious but comfortable little hotel which is perfectly situated in a side road off Via Independienza, about mid way between Bologna Centrale railway station and Piazza Maggiore. Our room was a good size, with a spacious and spotlessly clean bathroom. Unusually high quality bed linen and towels and a very comfortable bed was a bonus that you... More

Stayed there for one nite with my family. Very central location so parking was a big issue. It is €24/day to park In the private carpark about 500m down the road. The rooms are interesting pink . Our in room safe did not work. The beds are very old as the mattress springs are palpable upon laying on it. The... More

Location couldn't be better, the hotel doesn't look much from the outside but the rooms are lovely and big. The breakfast wasn't great. If your in Bologna there is a map that includes a tour of the city it's definitely worth doing!

We had a 2-room suite for 4 people. The room and bathroom was clean, spacious and nicely decorated with a view on the canal. The staff was helpful and friendly. The complementary breakfast was ok, but in the basement. Great place for a trip to Bologna as everything is within walking distance. Parking in a public garage near by.

Our trip to Bologna was amazing and the hotel stay was perfect. The location of this hotel is spot on. Being in the historic part of the city was great with easy access to the airport shuttle bus, surrounded by good places to eat, drink and shop. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Travelling as a... More

We were quite skeptical at first when we first saw the hotel. It was situated in a small alley next to a sex shop. We chose it because it is situated next to Via Independenza and a short walk away from all the tourist attractions. The rooms are large and the hotel staff are wonderful. There are 2 things that...

Brilliant location. Great value for money. Really authentic Italian hotel. The male receptionist was a bit cold and grim but my daughter thought that was maybe just the Italian male attitude. We loved it. Right in the centre of town. Defo recommend it.

The beds were big and comfy, the bathroom immaculately clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed the tamarind juice during breakfast and... More

Very good location, a few steps away from Via Indipendenza. Very good value for money. Breakfast could have been a little more varied; however it was good and sufficient and fresh fruit was included daily. Clean room. We would go there again.

This hotel was recommend by an upscale travel website as a reasonably priced option. Although my stay wasn't bad, it wasn't good either. The wifi was out during my stay, which was quite frustrating. The room was clean & a good size. Unfortunately, the staff wasn't very helpful or friendly.
