Reviewed October 2, 2013

I was disappointed by the room I had which was small and plain and had a bathroom adjusted for a wheelchair user which had a shower in with folding walls which did not work properly leaving only a tiny triangular space in which to stand whilst showering. However the room was clean and the bed relatively comfortable.
The location is very central for if there is a concert in the main square (which there was on 2of the 3 nights I was there, the noise is unbearable and continues into the early hours.
The breakfast was good and the staff serving at breakfast excellent. The staff on the reception were responsive but inclined to blame the client –as when I routed a problem with the door lock and on another occasion with the air conditioning system.

Excellent hotel, location very close to centre of city, quaint restaurant for breakfast (and evening meal).
Very pleasant and helpful staff. Room clean and well maintained with very comfortable beds, some rooms are themed.

Fantastic location! Ask for a specialty room .......ie the Olivetti room. They are whimsical, fun and spotless. This is our second visit to this hotel and we will back. The staff are very friendly and the neighborhood is ideal.

Stayed at Al Cappello Rosso in September 2013. Location couldn't have been better being just around the corner from Piazza Maggiore, the main Square with its tourist info office, shops and cafes. Hotel was clean, with comfortable beds, good breakfast and excellent staff. Would definitely stay here again if visiting Bologna.

Room Tip: Our room was at front but as in side street noise not a problem.

Chose this hotel because of location, a small side street minutes away from everything. It was so much more. This hotel is quirky in the best way. Books all over, red walls in small room thoroughly modern amenities and great breakfast. The staff was so nice and helpful. We would stay there again

Very nice hotel with amazing rooms (we were staying in the Kennedy). Lovely staff members and complemented with an amazing osteria with fantastic food and wines. The hotel is perfectly located, just arond the corner with one of the main commercial street of Bologna and just one minute walking from Piazza Maggiore.

My wife and I have just spent 5 nights at Al Cappella Rosso, and very very pleased with it. We had a room on the first at the front of the hotel, and were not trouble by noise. The room had all the amenities that we needed, and a very comfortable large bed. The selection at breakfast was very good, and served by friendly cheerful staff. The staff on reception were very helpful, and I would like to thank Yarno, who was always happy to deal with my requests, and help in any way he could. The situation of the hotel could not be better, only a few minutes from the many square. We we stay there again, yes definitely.

Room Tip: If you would like one of the themed rooms, you should let the hotel know before you arrive.
