You cannot get more central location than this place. All the historical places around are in a walkable distance. Plenty of restaurants and bars around. The hotel is based in old building and split between reception/breakfast/lounge area on the 1st floor, and rooms on the 3rd flool. There is a lift in the building. The rooms are clean, tidy and modern. Snacks and refreshments are always available in the corridor. Breakfast is served by a very friendly and helpful staff. This place is great for a city breaks and couples.

I will admit that we were a little unsettled by the taxi ride from the train station as we got closer to the B&B due to the graffiti on the walls. However, the location is actually fantastic - right below the two towers and within walking distance of all the sites in the old town area. We were also very pleased with the welcoming and supportive staff. Finally, the rooms were clean, comfortable, roomy and very nicely decorated. If you are travelling to Bologna, do yourself a favour and check this place out! You won't regret it!

This is an excellent B&B in a great location, just steps from the famous leaning towers and a 5-10 minute walk to Piazza Maggiore and the San Petronio Basilica. And, it's just down the block from Gelateria Gianni, one of the best gelato places in Bologna. We had the Tiffany room, plenty large for the two of us, with mirrored armoire, chest of drawers, and separate sitting area. The thing that made it feel really big though, almost like a suite, was the 15-20 foot hallway leading to the bathroom! Only drawback--the brown wall color was a bit gloomy. This is a B&B, although an elegant one, so staff is only present onsite from early in the morning through the evening. That said, Salvatore, who was on in the morning and early afternoon, and Baddy, in the late afternoon and evening, were both extremely helpful and pleasant. Both made excellent dinner recommendations and helped us make arrangements for leaving Bologna, Baddy printing out boarding passes and Salvatore calling a taxi to take us to the airport. A particular tip of the hat to Baddy, whose warm smile, enthusiasm, and excellent English made us feel right at home. The breakfast was fine, particularly the luscious array of tarts and cakes. (Oh, and yes, there was fruit too.) A word of caution. There's no awning or sign on the street to tell you you're at the right location. 051 is one of the tenants in a building with a number of them. There are buzzers next to the door, each with an identifying label, one of which is for 051, but since there's no sign for the B&B, you need to know the building number, which is 4. All in all, a great place to stay, and we will definitely go there again the next time we're in Bologna.

Two steps from the "due torri" and within short walking distance to most sightseeing and food spots. Nice and very helpful staff. Good breakfast selection for Italian circumstances. Looking forward to being back.
