We stayed at this hotel for a long weekend in December. The location is very convenient and the standards are quite good. We had a suite in 2 floors with 2 full bathrooms and a big bedroom with plenty of wardrobe space downstairs. The staff is very helpful and the breakfast is quite good. Having travelled in Italy for some... More

This was my second stay at this hotel. I enjoyed it enough the first time (3 years ago) that I decided to stay here again. Over the last 3 years, the hotel has become very run down. One of the pictures on the wall behind the bed was starting to come off of the wall. One of the light fixtures... More

At first we could not wait to arrive at this hotel. We had spent a few nights in different areas of Northern Italy and this was the third hotel for us. We had hired a car with a sat Nav and so put the post code for the hotel in. Firstly it was extremely hard to find. It is located... More

Thought it would be interesting to stay at a converted convent, but it has been modernized and has lost its feel of what could be a very unique boutique hotel. We met two receptionist, one was fairly fluent in English, the other not so much and we had a hard time communicating withi him (we just wanted to send out... More

The guy on reception was not the best first experience, we weren't allowed to check in until after 3pm, so we left our luggage in their not very secure storage area. When we finally checked into Our rooms had to grope our way along the passage as all the light bulbs had blown. Room we Booked was a Superior Double,... More

our stay started badly with the worst welcome I have ever had in any hotel - ever. this could be a real gem of a hotel, but the service is appalling. Fortunately we only booked for one night, but unfortunately it was our last night of a fabulous trip to Bologna and Riccione. Breakfast was a joke - not only... More

This hotel has a 4 star (Italian) rating. It would not compare to a 4 star hotel elsewhere and surprised they have this rating. Many mornings people were left stranded, waiting for breakfast, whilst other guests finished as there is not enough tables for even half the guests at the hotel, and the breakfast buffet was unimaginative and limited. Other... More

This hotel is not as it appears on website! It actually consists of only two floors with very noisy apartments above. We booked a superior double for three nights and were given a very small dark characterless room on the first floor with limited storage. After 2 nights with little sleep due to overhead noise we asked to be moved... More

It's a nice enough hotel but comparatively expensive. We stayed 2 nights in a Platinum suite (53) which was spacious and clean. It only has ambient light from 4 feature lamps and so was a bit dark. You can hear the road noise but it's not too intrusive unlike the herd of elephants staying in the room above us. It's... More
