We only stayed one night as we were passing through Bologna. The hotel was easy to reach by car and we parked safely on the street nearby. The location was excellent and all the landmarks we wanted to see were within comfortable walking distance. The receptionist was helpful and friendly on arrival and as we left. The rooms were a...

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times but one time too many: 1. The hotel is an old historic building at a crossroads. Every passing bus or car makes the building lull. In my experience, it applies to all street-facing rooms. 2. Sound proofing is very poor, even with window shutters on. 3. I can hear contents of water... More

The location of the hotel was great.It was close to railway station and city center.The price for one night incredibly cheap. I had to make my booking really fast, but wasn't disappointed at all when i got there.The receptionist was friendly and smiley. The bathroom was so small that there wasn't enough space between the toilet and the shower cabin.

Perfect hotel location. The room was clean and comfortable. Wifi worked perfectly. Airconditioning a little too noisy. All the receptionists were courteous and helpful. Yet, due to the lack of information provided by Expedia, or at least this was the excuse, we were informed that our booking did not include breakfast... 85€ per night for a three-star hotel with no...

While the Hotel Donatello is in a good location, the hotel leaves very much to be desired. Upon walking into the hotel one is greeted with a moldy odor. We were given our keys and we went up a rickety elevator to the fifth floor. The room we were given had NO WINDOWS. Under the sweltering Bologna heat, the hotel... More

Great location, staff incredibly kind, like 2 min away from train station and 2 min away from centro. Really clean!!!! I had a wonderful time. The girls in reception were really nice with guests. David from Mexico

Think that's the fairest title I can give it, to be honest. I booked a single room and got given a single room with a single size bed in it. The one and only hotel within my stay in Italy this February that has done that. All other places have provided me with differing room sizes but a double bed... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in October 2013. Whilst the staff were helpful and friendly, the room was very basic with strange configuration of bathroom and bedroom. Best part was the location as it was a short walk to the main piazza and station and the cost was reasonable.

Not the best stay in an hotel; Upside: In the city Not expensive for the location Downside: Air conditioning didn't work properly Parking would have been free but weren't informed, added cost of 20 euros

It´s a rare hotel: its staff is gentle and simpathetic! It´s not common in Italy! They smile! It has free internet point, what helped me a lot, it´s in the middle of many shops and restaurants, 10 minutes walking to Piazza Maggiore, and 10 minutes from Railway Station. My bedroom was small but in a confortable size, facing the street.... More
