Next day: drove to Firenze... More

I liked it. We'd just finished the manic sightseeing of Florence, Rome and Venice and this was just what I needed. Service good. A delightful afternoon relaxing by the pool followed by dinner at the hotel. Food was good, ambience great. Beautiful view over the valley. I'd stay there again.

Beautiful location in one of our favourite areas - the Appenines, one hour South of Bologna. The staff couldn't be more helpful; special mention to English-speaking Maitre de and hostess with the mostest. Stayed in a suite which was very well located and appointed. Landed on the evening of a 'Gala Dinner' to which we were invited and entertained by:... More

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
