Outstanding, outstanding, outstanding! Beautiful venue, beautiful scenery, amazing staff and super star food. This is a rustic, country Italian gem. Attended my daughter's wedding here on January 3, 2015 Never have been treated so kindly. Palazzo Loup is rustically beautiful. The staff was friendly, kind, responsive and proactive. Barbara, the manager, is worth her weight in gold. Barbara arranged for... More

Most importantly the staff were pleasant and very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble in helping to make our stay memorable. The dining facilities are excellent with views out over rolling hillsides and impeccable table service. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The swimming pool is set below the main buildings and again with breath-taking views over the valley. My... More

Our main objection to Palazzo Loup is its designation as a 4-star establishment. The furnishings are very tired. There is no sense of luxury about the place. The shower in our bathroom was a Home Depot-type add-on. The worst experience was the dining room environment which most resembled an unused banquet hall with a couple of tables provisionally set up... More

How fortunate we were to find this beautiful hotel tucked away in the Appenine hills 20 miles to the south of Bologna. We wanted a place to stay that was within reach of beautiful Bologna but also in the countryside and Palazzo Loup fitted the bill perfectly. The web site gave us a pretty good idea of what to expect,... More

This hotell has really understood the meaning of to put the customer in focus. The personal speak fluent english and are interested to inform and discuss with you every topic you may find intresting. Very unusual in my mind. The old building is also interesting and you can not find a more beautiful surroundings!
