Stayed here for 2 nights in August 2014. We were greeted by a rather cold but professional receptionist who then showed us to our room on the 4th floor. The beautiful spacious room with its high frescoed ceiling and terrazzo floor won us over immediately. The hotel is well located, close to the main station and within easy walking distance... More

Stayed here for two nights and have mixed feelings about this hotel. It is a large hotel that may have been separate buildings at one time as hallways and floors don't often flow. For example, we couldn't use the stairs to get from our 3rd floor room to the ground floor. From the 2nd floor of our wing, we couldn't... More

We stayed for 3 nights after a change in our traveling itinerary. The staff were professional and provided excellent service to their guests. With every question we asked , they either answered and provided directions or leaflets to assist us to get to where we needed to be. As it was deep in holiday season we tried and failed to... More

We were originally booked to stay in a different hotel but it was closed so we were upgraded to this hotel. We were on our honeymoon and this was my favourite hotel of our trip! It is very close to Bologna Central station and is also a short, straight (and beautiful) walk into the centre of Bologna. It is a... More

Overall, the basics of this hotel are solid and it could be one of the best in Bologna. That it is not, is due to the lack of attention to detail. Pity, because it would be so easy to improve. More specifically: Pros - good location; interesting renovation; positive blend of the old and the new; staff that (overall) are... More

This is a lovely hotel in a brilliant location. It is steps from the central railway station and the bus station, so perfect if you are travelling on to other cities or even the airport. It is an easy 15 minute stroll to the centre, much of that under the cover of the wonderful Bologna porticos. The rooms are comfortable,... More

This scores well. Very well run, smart and friendly hotel with good quality rooms (with all mod cons - including an English plug!) breakfast was also a good option with a fine selection of fresh fruit and patisserie. Adjacent to a green park and a short walk from the centre, covered by ornate archways and plenty of shops if you... More

Bologna is like no other city and this hotel is the same....like no other hotel. Set in a palazzo from another era, the architect has created a 21st century jewel. And the staff somehow read your mind with their unobtrusive attention. A visit to Bologna means you avoid the over-crowded tourist centers and discover an Italy that you would otherwise... More

We stayed 5 nights at this hotel in Bologna in July this year. The room was spacious and comfortable, the food was good and the staff were exceptionally helpful. It passed our orange juice test (freshly squeezed oranges at breakfast) and our light bulb test - a broken bulb was promptly replaced. We had great help from Reception when we... More

An easily accessible hotel. 5 minute walk from railway station and airport bus stop and 15 minute walk into Piazza Maggiore- centre of old town. Rooms are very clean and adequate for a short stay, but may be a little sparse in hanging /storage facilities for a longer stay. The air conditioning was ok, but in our room was rather... More
