Tucked away in the Old Jewish Quarter of Bologna, Italy is the San Donato hotel. I had only one night this time, but I hope it's not the last time I stay there. The staff was friendly, my room was great, but it's the location that's fantastic! Breakfast outside on the balcony overlooking beautiful Bologna was fabulous. I'll definitely check...

I am very glad to choose this hotel. We have a stroller and the hotel is easily accessible. The room was nice with a terrific view. Breakfast was 5 euros/person but it really worths with the variety and taste, simply marvelous. Location was great. It was a pleasure to sit at the terrace and have a cup of cappuccino while...

fabulous place in the right position. The hotel decor fits in with the surrounding buildings. The rooftop terrace is great and the staff will serve you up there if you wish, although i took my drinks up there myself. The hotel is clean, the staff are friendly and the breakfast is a typical continental breakfast. If i was to find...

A stone's throw from the towers and a few blocks from the Piazza Maggiore, a comfortable hotel with nice room, terraces with views ( and complimentary coffee ), and a roof terrace with great views of the city and the towers, this was a good choice.

We were pleased to find out that the hotel could give our plates to the police so that we would not be ticketed for driving in the historic city center. Parking was EUR24 per night, but well worth it since we had two kids, suitcases and a rental car. The room was clean and renovated, the rooftop decks were amazing...

If you visit bologna so stay in San donato. It's located in the city center, they offer parking space ( which is not typical in bologna) and they offer a very good breakfast. They also have a roof terrace so you can have a wonderful view.

Well, the noise made by rowdy students is intrusive, but in fairness there's nothing the hotel can do about this - it's the price you pay for te location in a university city. We were delighted to be allocated room 202 at the front of the hotel near to bar and roof terrace. Stayed three nights over a very busy...

Very central but so noisy, no sleep at weekends when students drinking nearby till early morning. We paid for superior room which faced onto road, friends had smaller much cheaper room but no noise ! Good buffet breakfast 5 euros. Went for 2 birthday celebrations but nothing special done for us.

Clean comfortable quiet room. Take the stairs, well worth it for the paintings. Shower didn't drain so you had to keep turning off the water supply until it drained. Everything around the hotel appeared very 'tired'. They appeared to be focusing on repairing the cornices in reception, very odd considering the rest of the decor.
