A warm greeting on arrival and efficient staff looked after us very well. A welcome complimentary drink voucher to use in the bistro was a nice touch. First impressions was a bright clean well run hotel in a very central location. Our standard room was very clean, high ceiling and a good sized shower room. A double bed and bedside... More

I stayed here on business. The entrance and reception is impressive in its architecture. The welcome was warm and in perfect English. The impressive architecture extended to the room which was small but had a very high and beautifully painted ceiling. It was a bit noisy but due to a party in a local park so probably a one off....

Very easy to find this hotel on foot from train. Very close to centro storico. Michelin * restaurant on site! Amazing room service. Excellent breakfast. You can buy their fresh homemade pasta on site to take away. The palazzo is old so you can hear outside noise if your room faces the park and a bit of noise from the... More

We just left today after spending 4 nights here over New Years and we were terribly disappointed! This was meant to be a 4-star hotel, a bit of a "treat" for us over our 6 week holiday in Europe. It was anything but! I had specifically asked for a quiet room but what we got was quite the opposite!!! Between... More

We stayed in a suite at this hotel for 2 nights based on reviews from TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. The hotel is modern and clean with good service from all staff and it is in a very good location where you can walk to most tourist hot spots. Breakfast is typically Italian style however adequate with good service -... More

It's a beautiful hotel right on Via Indipendenza where all the actions are. Roomy, modern bathroom. The only glitch is that this is the only hotel in Italy we booked that did not have a complimentary breakfast, which we failed to verify (also part of a misunderstanding on the part of minor language barrier ) and had to pay 12...

This hotel is ideally located on the main city road in Bologna. It is walking distance to many of Bologna's major attractions. The hotel lobby is spacious (rare for hotels in Europe) and comfortable. The Front Desk receptionists are very helpful. The rooms are minimalistic but clean. Reliable free WIFI. The breakfast was just ok. Nothing special. If you don't... More

What a welcome and what a great stay. The staff is simply superb....from the reception desk to the housekeeping. The room was lovely with a view on the church across the street. The bar is good with the same great service. We Couldn't have wished for a better stay and better service..... Thank you!

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for two nights after travelling through Italy. We had paid roughly €100 a night for most of our hotels but this far out ranked the others.
