“Hotel Donatella”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2008

This is a little late, because I stayed there last April for a few days, as we were there on business. This is a little 3 star hotel, where the rooms and bathroom are spacious,and clean, with very helpfull staff at the reception, a good buffet breakfast, and right in the middle of the centre are of bologna, with an excellent rate , which was good value. I had forgotten some of my belongings there, and called a few days later, asked them to ship them to me, and they did, on their cost. I don't know of most places which are small that do this.

If you are tourist from Europe and are used to eating late, well in Italy the lastest will be around 9 in the evening, we had a great dinner on St Stefanos area called Cestatorio, I must admit it was and unforgettable meal. If you go to cold cut places, they serve great meat and cheese platters, and good wine.

If we go back to Bologna, I will definately stay at Donatella again.

Breakfast was average, tiny bathroom. The location (walking distance from train station) and free internet (computer in lounge downstairs) were the saving graces.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2008

The hotel was pretty average, Nice clean room but very very small bathroom!!The breakfast isnt that good. We had to wait 10mins for a table then there were no bread rolls left. we waited for fresh ones but they were still cold on the inside when we got them and there wanst much left to eat!Didnt see any eggs either. Good location 10min walk from trainand bus station and close to the centre.there is a nice cafe across the road too. Paid alot less for a nicer hotel in Florence!

  • Liked — closeness to train station
  • Disliked — small bathroom!
