We are in a very noisy room (42) as we can hear all sounds from the apartment upstairs, the receptionist just confirmed it should be a 3 stars not a 4 stars, way too expensive for what it is, no charm, you cannot feel it was a convent at all !!! Instant coffee for breakfast... in Italy !!! Not acceptable,... More

Stayed there for three nights during a scientific convention at the Rizzoli Orthopaedic institute. Friendly staff, acceptable european breakfast, and very good coffee. Placed within walking distance of both the city centre and the Rizzoli this was the perfect solution for me.

Flew to Bolgna, Ryan air and walked from railway station to this hotel. The area around initially seems a little down at heal, but inside the hotel an oasis of cool, calm. The room, just at the top of the stairs on the first floor, overlooked the courtyard, not a great view, but quiet. Small fridge, safe, tea/coffee, small supermarket... More

I stayed here for one night. It's a lovely hotel. The rooms are very clean and well kept. It's a little tired here and there but very charming. The shower in my room was a waterfall type shower and was amazing in the morning.. Can't fault this hotel, the staff were excellent. It's a slight walk from the city centre... More

Stayed here: as i stay in Bologna often, i wanted to try something different. This is in a nice part of bologna and accessible to the center by 15 minute walk. Nice boutique hotel with interesting history as a convent. Rooms are spacious, clean and interestingly decorated. Good value for money. I would definitely stay again.

Stayed here for a few nights on a work trip. Staff were really helpful and friendly. Breakfast was average, mainly pastries (which were tasty) but no hot food option although various coffee varieties were offered. A bit of a shame considering the price charged (one of the most expensive hotels I've stayed in.) Room was comfortable, chic and clean and... More

The place is easily accessible and a short walk to the center of the city. The hotel however has prison-like corridors, very strange room decor, lack of carpeting, bathroom in badly need of refurbishing and overall lack of simple room comforts. The hotel reception are is nice, well-decorated, but don't expect the same to spread throughout the hotel.
