The location of this hotel is so fun! I loved being in the middle of all the best that Bologna has to offer! It wasn't noisy at all and there was so much to do all within a 10 minute walk (at most!). The room was very pretty, had AC and was fully equipped with everything we needed.

We stayed at the albergo dell drapperie for 2 nights in June 2014. It was a very central location within the city centre, just a few minutes walk from the Piazza Maggiorie and the main shopping street. The hotel was located on a pedestrian street which forms the older part of the city and is characterised by delis, fish shops,... More

The hotel is located on a street abuzz with activities filled with all the colors and flavors of an Italian marketplace. If you enjoy people watching and soaking in the sights and sounds, then this is for you. We stayed only for one night and thoroughly enjoyed watching the activities from our window on the second floor. The central location... More

We agree with the many reviewers who have given good reports. Bologna is a city on a comfortable scale, we stayed three nights and the central location of this hotel made it easy to explore the city widely on foot. Others have mentioned that the hotel reception area is on the first floor, also taxis cannot get within about 100m,... More

The hotel couldn't be better placed for the centre of city life. We stayed for 2 nights and found it clean and comfortable although quiet isn't a word I'd use to describe our room which looked out over a vibrant narrow street of fish stalls, beautiful looking fruit and veg shops and mouthwatering, aromatic Parmesan cheeses and prosciutto. If you... More

This hotel is well located with all the major attractions in walking distance. The street around the hotel has quirky meat and veg shops. We stayed in Room 207, it was quiet (for Bologna). The decor of the hotel and rooms are quirky and interesting.

We stayed in room 303, which was not facing the street so it was pretty quiet when the window was shut. Intermittent wi-fi but the desk clerk did try and fix it. Our room was spacious, by European standards but the bathroom had a tub with a handheld shower and no shower curtain, making it impossible to shower. They will... More

Great little hotel for 1 night but no elevator to front desk where the elevator starts...lol The room was ok but you hear your neighbours as if there in your own quarters. It is very well located for all the attractions and restaurant. 10 minutes taxi ride from train station.

This is a great place to stay in the very heart of Bologna's lively historic centre with a host of great bars, shops, restaurants and food stalls right on your doorstep.

This is a wonderful small hotel in the middle of the historic center of Bologna. . Location of this place is perfect - flower shop, fish shops, small cafe, most significant historic places to see - all are within 1-5 minutes walk. It is difficult to imagine the better place, if you would like to get feeling of how local... More
