Ideally located at the beginning of the centre. Good for a weekend trip. Nice staff of the hotel, with friendly advice about where to eat. Room was cold, very cold. Uncomfortable bed, that moved into the middle. Very little light, like a dungeon. Room was located on the main street side. Shower was good actually, and the bidet is funny...

We stayed at Hotel Donatello with a bunch of friends on previous visits to Bologna & will stay again next October. Since it was such a great experience, I want to take time to recommend them. They have an ideal location, being in the middle of everything appealing while also being nice & quiet indoors. They are a short walk...

This was my second stay at Hotel Donatello. A friendly and helpful staff on arriving always starts a visit on a positive note. The room was clean and had views onto the Via Dell'Indipendenza. The breakfast was excellent. I certainly would return to the hotel should I have the opportunity to visit, again, the beautiful city of Bologna.

I stayed at Hotel Donatello from 1th to 22nd October 2016 and it was a really great stay. The hotel is just 10 minuted walk from the Bologna Centrale and only takes 15 minutes wlak to the sightseeing places. There are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby and close to many shops also. The breakfast in the hotel was the...

No complaints with the room, very clean, bathroom small but manageable. Quiet room on the 4th floor at the back of the hotel. Staff friendly. Ideal position for station and the town. Only grouse would be that the breakfast, although adequate, could have been much more varied.

Hotel Donatello is quite centrally situated on the Indipendenza, only a five minute's walk away from the main squares and old city center. However, the rooms are miserable. The bed was lousy, the matress old and formed by other people's bodies over the years . The rest of the furniture and colours in the room was depressing. My room faced...

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...

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...
