4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

very good hotel, dead central bologna. not super high end, but in a great location. check out the 3rd and 4th floor views. probably some of the best in the city. however the streets nearby are difficult, id recommend not driving anything larger than a small euro car to the hotel

Hotel is little bit outdated but everything works. Location is in the middle of old town so you can walk everythere. Wi-fi is excelent. Rooms are medium size and clean. There is nice view from roof terrace over the town. No bar at the roof terrace. Safe and expensive park at hotel. Breakfast is medium.

The hotel is very central and located right at a nice piazza with a cafe. My room was of good size and comfortable, however the room and the common areas I visited does not seem to have been renovated for 20-30 years. Breakfast was ok, however, croissants were not fresh and the "orange juice" was just sweet sugary drink (however... More

It took me 40 minutes to find it, but that was lack of map and Italian. In fact it's just a 20 minute walk from the train station. The hotel is located just next to The towers in the centre. Lots of eateries, bars, bus stops etc on your doorstep. A must do is the 489 steps up the tower.... More

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 Rooms are outdated and smell like a sewer.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 The building is charming and old, rooms are a bit outdated but still clean and comfortable.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....
