Boasting a Michelin starred restaurant, we checked in for an overnight stay on a long drive south, planning to wander the city and have a good dinner before departing next morning. Rooms were very comfortable and good price. We were given a mini suite with large empty vestibule, clean spacious shower room, separate dressing room, large bedroom with comfortable bed,... More

I stayed here with my partner for 4 nights, and it has some positive features. The check in was fast, and we were taken to the room. Staff throughout the hotel are polite and friendly. The hotel has done some great work preserving the original features of the building, such as terrazzo floor. Make sure you look at the ceilings,... More

This hotel is really wonderful, with lots of little touches to make you feel at home. These really were lovely, and better than many 5 star hotels. You get a welcome drink on arrival, or in our case, the next evening as we arrived very late. This isn't any old drink, head to the bar upstairs where there's great outside... More

This hotel could not be any more convenient, right downtown Bologna, and just across the street from the train station. We had two rooms adjacent to each other, enclosed by another door so we could leave both of our doors open and still had privacy. The décor was interesting, modern designs in the room, with ceilings displaying frescos from the... More

Contemporary hotel in the heart of Bologna, minutes from the train station and central sights of Bologna. Service and hotel amenities cannot be beat! Hotel staff accommodated dining and spa requests without delay, very responsive via email.

I booked this hotel for my sister and I on the strength of the Trip Adviser reviews, the hotel's photos and its central Bologna location. It is cool, contemporary and calm. In 38 degree heat it's sleek lines and air conditioning were a delight after a day of sight seeing. The rooms, as in all Italy, are on the smaller... More

The hotel was clean and staff were very helpful and courteous. It was in a good location, in easy walking distance to the train station and the centre of Bologna, and very easy to find. Our only complaint was that despite being put in a 'quiet' part of the hotel, we found it quite noisy during the night from people... More

Dear ALD6688, thank you so much for your review! Bologna offers so many things to do during the summer, for example the cinema under the stars in Piazza Maggiore from june to august, so some guests go to bed late... Come back and enjoy a bike tour in the city center or a night jazz concert in the Montagnola park:... More

extremely helpful and friendly staff, who went out of their way to help. the room we checked into was really a little too small for two people, although the addition of some extra shelving in bathroom would have helped this. However we were moved to another room that was extremely comfortable and with a larger bathroom . we were very... More
