5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Not one to often write reviews but after staying here I felt it was a must, particularly after reading some of the previous reviews. We booked to stay in a twin economy room, and couldn't have been more pleased when we entered the room. It was a great size, with loads of storage space (both hanging and drawers), a fridge,...

Great location... Rooms are outdated and smell like a sewer. Showers are tiny, nasty carpet on floors and walls! Friendly staff however; especially the cleaning lady!! You will probably need a chiropractor after sleeping on their beds....

The hotel is located right in the old centre, accesible by car and easy to find. The building is charming and old, rooms are a bit outdated but still clean and comfortable. My room also had a small terace but it was way too hot to enjoy it. The best part of the hotel is the open terace where you... More

Not the best rooms, but model pricing and very central for the city centre. Air conditioning not working on arrival, rather dated but functional rooms, public areas are okay. Plenty close enough to walk to within 15 minutes strolling time.

We had booked to stay 4 nights, but ended up checking out one night early. The hotel has a café/cocktail bar right outside the front door. It is very noisy late at night with people yelling, then when all the customers are gone the pack up begins. Tables and chairs scraping along the cobblestones until all hours of the morning....

Fully recommended. We returned for one night this year to kick off our Italian Odyssey (we finished with two nights last year). Hotel is friendly- rooms are comfortable. Breakfat on the roof-top terrace (overlooking the two towers) is fabulous- particular mantion to the buffalo mozzarella- a bargain for an additional 5 euros.

A beautiful and perfect location, very easy to find. Good basic rooms with aircon and breakfast on the pretty outdoor terrace with a view over the city. Really lovely staff, very helpful and stunning rooftop terrace with sun beds. We would definitely visit again.

Could not have better location for central Bologna. Roof terrace and 2 small terraces. Great views especially the 2 towers. Faded decor etc but adequate breakfast and helpful, tolerant staff- changed my room for... More

A comfortable stay in the middle of the city/town. There are various room options available to suit all budgets. try and take a room on a higher floor facing the streets. Because the streets in this town are very happening, colorful and full of live :-)
