Reviewed July 17, 2013

Love the literary theme throughout. Front desk and breakfast team were all attentive and friendly. Modern rooms. Red and white décor looked great. Nice bathrooms, amenities, towels, robes. Good breakfast. Good internet. I highly recommend, and would happily stay again.

This is a first class hotel. It is situated in an ideal position for exploring the city - just off Piazza Maggiore and in a quiet side street.
All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly and very patient with my poor Italian.
My room was spacious and well equipped
The breakfast was excellent and they have just started to do lunches and dinners at reasonable prices.
This is an excellent hotel which I can thoroughly recommend

Heard great things but was some what disappointed. Staff was blase, not very helpful. Room was adequate in size and decor. Bath was good. Asked for a room with a view, didn't get it. Location was fairly central but not sure what it was but something was missing.

Room Tip: Higher floors might be less noisy

Dear Mr Michael T,

Thank you for your kind review, we are very sorry to read that your stay did not satisfy your expectations.

We apologize not having replied to your request to have a room with a view or a balcony, as we could have explained you about the fact that the only rooms with a small terrace are Junior Suites (it would have been a pleasure for us to upgrade you to one of those rooms if one would have been available).

Besides, as you might have noticed, we are located in a medieval narrow street right behind the main square and unfortunately the height of the front and lateral buildings do not allow any open view of the center and its monuments.

We usually trust in our privileged position to repair this unintended deficiency and we would be really happy to welcome you again in Bologna.
Best regards,

Marianna Di Giansante – GENERAL MANAGER
Yarno Bignone – BOOKING MANAGER

Excellent location and good English spoken with good food and clean room, free Internet and map on arrival. Breakfast choice adequate, eggs worth a try, folded not scrambled. Right round the corner from the main square on bologna

... it's a wonderful experience! Our first night found us in a room so small we could barely fit in two weeks worth of luggage, (and it was right next to the housekeeping office so we heard every housekeeper clock in for work ) but once we moved to a larger room it was great. Accommodating staff, nice morning meal in a great location.

This 4 star hotel is located just near the Piazza Magiore and the statue of "Nettuno". We stayed in the typewriting room (Lettera # 305) which has an attractive design: an Olivetti typewriting machine is placed on the wall, all typwriting letters are placed on the ceiling above the bed. The bathroom is well equipped but a bit small. The room has airco and Italian shutters. A delicious breakfast is offered with a wide range of choices: Italian "dolci": sweet cakes and "cornetto" with cream and pudding, fresh bread, yoghurt, fresh fruit and more. Friendly and helpful employees at both the reception and the breakfast room are part of feeling comfortable in this hotel. We will definitely visit this hotel again!
