I booked this as a budget hotel that offered great value and my review is based on this. I (55+ woman travelling solo) stayed here for 6 nights in September. As it is close to the train station it is a convenient base for visiting different cities in the area (Parma, Modena, Ravenna, etc.). Also lots of shopping nearby and... More

Basically, as I said in the title the place is falling apart, kind of dirty and quite expensive. I've been there on a business trip so I wasn't the one to pay but I would have been very pissed off otherwise. The location, on the other hand, is fantastic.. literally 1 minute walk from the city center and maybe 10... More

This is a hotel I have used on a number of occasions over the past twenty years. It is clean, the staff are welcoming and the breakfast continental style, good pastries and cakes. Hotel Donatello is within walking distance of the main railway station and bus station. For those who visit the research area CNR the bus stop is about... More

The hotel is not new, but is really nice and clean. The room was really comfortable. It is located in via Indipendenza, in the city center of Bologna, so it's ideal when you want to discover the city. The reception is open 24/7 , and the personnel (both at the front office and the breakfast room) is always kind, and... More

Have stayed here several times as it is in a good central location, easy to visit the centre and short walk from the Central Station. The rooms are a good size and very clean, staff friendly and helpful. I have not had breakfast here as book a lower rate without it and prefer to go to one of the nearby... More

Hotel is located in the heart of the old city, near to the station. It is an old hotel. rooms are well furnished and clean. As I am asked for a quite room, they reserved me a really quite one. The only disadvantage is maybe the smallest bathroom I ever saw but comparing with the price it is OK. So,... More

Room was spacious and silent, good bathroom with awesome shower, wifi ok. However I left the car in... More

I stayed here for two nights and overall it was very good. The staff were excellent throughout. The bedroom and bathroom were modern and well appointed. The strongest point is its location, five minutes walk from Bologna Centrale station and fifteen minutes from the Two Towers. But they really should get the air conditioning fixed before next summer.
