Our first trip to Italy, we traveled with friends that have been numerous times, however, their first trip to Bolonga, to our surprised, actually to everyone's surprised, this hotel was unique and quaint. Again, we asked the staff about the history of the hotel, very interesting, actually dating back to the 1600's or so, the lobby is small but in it's own way very authentic Italian, when you walk pass the lobby, you will be in for surprised, you will walk into a court yard with a well, continue walking pass what looked like a greenhouse at one time, the breakfast room, very pretty, continue into another courtyard and up to where we stayed. Again, the building are very old, so stairs to go up to your room. The rooms are good size and again very authentic.
The hotel is tucked away in what looks like a residential area, good restaurant at the corner, always full of locals. We walked around the city a bit, lots and lots of college age students, as it has a great University. Would recommend it. Staff was great, very helpful and pleasant.
We also found lots of americans staying in the hotel as well as British visitors.
