“Great hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

What a wonderful hotel and very central to everything in Bologna. Bit more expensive being 5 star however it was worth it, if you want something special this is the place, having the door open for you made you feel great. Not far from the airport, and caught the bus into town, did get off at the bus stop and had to walk back, could have got off a couple of stops earlier.

Room Tip: Get off the bus before the bus station, this is half way down the main drag.

I had the pleasure to stay here over new years. Our room felt gigantic after the week prior having just stayed in Paris, but to be honest a lunchbox would feel roomy after a week in Paris. Bologna is one of my favorite destinations and I would see no reason to stay anywhere but this hotel while visiting. Some famous people have stayed here and it's easy to see why. Fantastic location in very close proximity to the main square where for new year's a giant paper monkey was set on fire! It was nuts. Anyway, spring for the breakfast, well worth it. The staff have the upmost professionalism. Over the course of the week this felt like home the comfort was so top notch. Never felt like that in a hotel before.

We stayed for 3 nights over New Year in this lavish hotel. Staff everywhere were helpful, courteous and welcoming. Our room,though smallish, had every convenience including double basin, and we appreciated the twice daily service.
Location is perfect, right in the centre of town and only 20 mins taxi ride from the airport.
The highlight was our dinner for New Year set in the frescoed dining room. We had been given an English menu before arrival and another was on our table. The feast and accompanying wines were sublime and all the while we were made to feel very special.
Thank you to all.

Four night stay over the Festive period. Generally friendly staff but dated room, average breakfast and facilities. Good central location and easy to get around - 15 minute walk to the train station, and a short taxi ride from the airport.

This is the kind of hotel which has hosted celebrities like Frank Sinatra and Princess Diana. Gorgeous old building with all the modern conveniences. Our room was large and lovely. I especially liked the marble shower floor. The staff was great. We needed correct change for the bus and one of the front desk went to her purse to help us get it. The breakfast was delicious with an incredible selection. There is a small but well-stocked bar with a charming bartender. We liked Bologna anyway, but this hotel will make us go back.

Hard to navigate to if you are driving--sometimes the main street is closed-and you'll have to just have to risk it and drive down to the front door. The hotel is quick to help you with your car.

Really enjoyed this hotel except there was construction that we were unaware of. Disappointing.

Otherwise I appreciated that they provided extra towels! (first hotel in all of Italy that has done this). Breakfast was good, staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel was clean.

Small suggestions: you're a five star hotel--provide free wifi to your guests. It's a small thing that goes a long way. And provide free waters in the rooms.Always a hassle when that's not available.

Room Tip: Lots of street noise, music, traffic. There is also construction that can be heard in the building...

Please note that the WIFI high speed connection is already available and free for all the guests of the hotel.
For a future occasion please kindly remember that the city center is closed to the cars during the week end, so it's a great occasion to have a walk around boutiques without the noises of the car traffic, with only the sound of some street's orchestras!

Looking forward to welcoming you in the future!

I will start off with the only negative point about the hotel. It is really hard to get to using a navigation system and a rental car. The actual street the hotel is on is a pedestrian street and all of the streets nearby are (or seem to be) one way. We were eventually given a map of how to get to a side street- but only after we drove down the pedestrian street the wrong way- apparently there is a right way! We had followed another car.

The hotel is extremely central. The rooms are comfortable and we had a great view of the church from our balcony. The staff were very efficient and friendly and keen to help, where-ever they could. The staff at the restaurant and bar were 5 star! Especially Max and Domenico. We enjoyed our Puccinis and nibbles in the evening very much.
