Looking at the website photos, we thought it would be a really cool place, therefore phoned and booked 3 nights in the GOLD Junior suite. The following day we arrived and got a shock. We were the only clients, and the hotel was so dirty and smelly (chemical fragrances to cover the smells) that my husband, as soon as checked... More

As usual, the hotel photos were nothing like 'reality'. Set in an obscure neighborhood and virtually unmarked, this little hotel was great on the personality side; very helpful staff and a mish mash of new and old. There were more negatives about this hotel than positive however; 1) the room windows were so high you could not let any natural... More

Stayed for 3 nights, our first time to Bologna.... First time to Italy! Really can't think of any negative points about the hotel itself. The staff were helpful and friendly. The room was quiet and comfortable. The wifi was great! Breakfast was tasty, fresh baked pastries, breakfast pizzas, meats cheeses, lots of drink choices. The location was really good in... More

We honestly spent no more than 8 hours here, and for 7 of them we were asleep. Unfortunately I can’t offer much in terms of a review other than that the room was very cosy and dark and therefore I had an exquisite sleep. Frankly though the most important thing a hotel can do I help you get to sleep,... More

We have just spent four days here, staying in a two level suite with a living area and two bathrooms, i.e. Enormous. It was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Both bathrooms were very good. This is a boutique hotel and so we did not expect the level of service from a full hotel, but the staff were always very helpful... More

Cannot fault the hotel. The staff were super efficient and helpful. Our room comfortable and excellently maintained daily. The desk staff at front of hotel could not have been more pleasant and informative. Breakfast buffet good even after ten days.

We loved this hotel so much two years ago that we came back this year. The place is still gorgeous in many ways and our luxury room, complete with vaulted ceiling, mezzanine with a beautiful cantilevered glass desk, mosaic tiled bathroom and the most gorgeous golden chandelier showed a lot of design flair despite being rather small. BUT we found... More

After reading several reviews we decided to take a chance strictly because of location and what appeared to be its uniqueness. We didn't regret that decision despite the rather poor breakfast selection, extremely ancient lift which each had their own charm none the less. No trouble with traffic noise, #55 but we do live on a boat in the middle... More

Il Convento's supposed heritage in a converted monastery is nominally evident in the lobby, otherwise rooms are clean and completely unremarkable. Our room was decorated with a plexiglass piece of "art"; simply bizarre. Maybe (?) 3 stars, though not 4. Zero charm. Staff pleasant.

We were mislead by good reviews of this hotel and our experience could not have been more disappointing. Despite booking a junior suite, the room was small and dark (empty places on the wall where light fixtures clearly had meant to be) Worst was that it never got below 26 degrees so we sweltered all night. The shower overflowed over... More
