We booked a one night stay at this hotel having been personally recommended by a friend.
When we arrived, earlier than expected, we were checked in quickly by the reception staff who offered us some information on the hotel (opening times of the jaccuzzi and a map of where we were located). We then went to our room to find a very well docorated, modern room with a lovely balcony/terrace area that had plenty of room to sit on our table and chairs and enjoy the view of the roof tops!
Whilst unpacking there was a knock on the door and one of the waiters had bought up to our room a bottle of Prosecco as I had requested this in my booking, to celebrate my mother's birthday. She was so surprised and it was lovely that they had timed in for just after we arrived.
The hotel in only a short 10 minute walk from the Piazza Maggiore and perfectly located to walk to all the main sites.
We decided to make use of the roof top jaccuzzi on our return from a hard day sight seeing and were able to book a 30 minute slot at reception (we booked a Gold Room and the use of the jacuzzi - and Wifi - is therefore free). When we arrived on the terrace the pool had been uncovered and ready to use. The view from here are amazing and it was great to sit there, relax and take it all in.
In the morning we had breakfast (mainly cold buffet style, with a great selection of breads, cheeses and pastries and also some scrambled egg) before checking out. We were able to leave our luggage at the hotel whilst we went to finish site seeing. When we returned the receptionist was very helpful in advising the cost of a taxi to the airport (EUR16 - cheaper than the bus and then a taxI) and this arived promptly and took only 20mins to get us there.
Overall, I would rate this hotel as an excellent 3*, and for it's facilities and friendly staff I think it should easily be a 4*. If you wondering where to stay in Bolgna definitley stay here!
