Our family stayed here for one night on the way down to the south of Italy. I'd read some mixed reviews and was prepared for it to be a bit rough. The outside of the hotel is quite ugly and the reception area was chaotic with an African drum band and a battle re-enactment group amongst others, all trying to... More

I spent 1 day at Imola for business and Donatello was a good choice to stay. The rooms are clean, with good accommodations. You have a good restaurant inside the hotel, so you gain some time when you are hungry and don´t want to lose working time.

...but that's a good thing. Imola race circuit had its heyday in the eighties but still exudes the character and charm that faceless modern circuits fail to muster. The same could be said about the Donatello. From the outside it's more Torremolinos than Toro Rosso but it makes up for it with friendly service and good, clean facilities. The room... More

The Donatello has nice rooms, a good restaurant and a very friendly service. It is perfectly located in the Pedania area, not far from the center of Imola, the racetrack and some nice parks. The breakfast room on the top offers a wonderful view of Imola and the hills surrounding.

We arrive and were given a room on the 8th floor which was large and very comfortable. We had a very pleasant meal in the restaurant which was separated from another area were apparently on Saturday nights they have a baby sitting service with the "happy noise" children running around. We then went up to our room and were assaulted... More

Wifi was pretty bad. didn't work sometimes and really weak when it did work. Restaurant attached to the hotel had good food, but the night we were there, there was a large party... More

Very clean, but slighty basic hotel. Staff are very helpful and food in restaurants is very good and a reasonable price. Comfortable walk to the race track if you want to stretch you legs and do not want to take a taxi.

We stayed here for three nights while on business in Imola. The rooms are a nice size. The wireless internet that they say works everywhere doesn't work in the rooms. You are able to sit in the lobby and use the wifi. The hotel staff are very nice and the restaurant in the hotel has a very nice menu. If... More
