We had a great stay here. The staff was helpful. Great suggestions for dinners. Beautiful rooftop bar where the front desk encouraged you to visit. Breakfast was very good and a great way to start the day. They will make a cappuccino for you. The rooms were quiet, modern and clean. I would say the only downside was the WiFi. I was bumped off several times in the midst of making reservations and retrieving airline reservations. Unfortunately there was no printer for guests to use and the software on the hotel computer was out of date so I was unable to retrieve or print boarding passes. With a little technology update this hotel would be a 5 star plus!

Location, room quality, staff, all deserving of a 4-star hotel rather than the 3 they have. With parking! Breakfast quality above the norm for Italy. The Touring is ideal as a base for exploring the center of the city, yet just enough off the beaten track for a bit of peace and quiet. Head for the nearby Giardino Margherita for a bit of "rus in urbe". We didn't even check out the roof terrace, which by all accounts is cool too. I had a walk in closet, excellent bathroom, and a balcony. I'll stay there again like a shot.

We've stayed at his hotel twice now and both times felt it was one of the best places in Bologna. My daughter, who attends the University of Bologna, searched around and recommended this place. First of all, it is family run and they treat you like family, so friendly and helpful. Very charming, well decorated and clean. Nice breakfast which is included, parking available close by for 12euro daily (doesn't open till 7am, so beware if you have an early airport departure), easy
walking distance to city center. Neighborhood is quiet and the rooftop terrace has one of the most beautiful views of Bologna. Staff is very accommodating, allowed us to leave baggage at hotel after checkout, so we could still see the city before a later airport departure.Will stay again without hesitation. Very happy!

We stayed in this hotel for two nights. It is located close to the center of Bologna, about five minutes walking from the Piazza Maggiore where all the major shops are. The hotel staff is very friendly and are doing their utmost to be helpfull if you have any questions. We stayed in room 330 which has a big balcony, tv, blow dryer, minibar. The price for this room -- 105 euro per night -- was very reasonable. The hotel serves a good breakfast in the cellar for 8 euro per person. Also a good deal. But be sure to come at the right time and not at the end of breakfast time. All in all we can recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a enjoyable stay in the beautiful city of Bologna.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a big balcony.

I can't say enough good about our experience at Hotel Touring. Exceptionally clean, comfortable(small) rooms, beautiful rooftop terrace, nice breakfast and a staff that is second to none. The location put us within easy walking distance to all that bologna has to offer, including restaurants.

Thanks for the fantastic review! We love the feedback. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the room. Did you feel like an Italian? or European....small ambient
I agree about the view from The Terrazza Mattuiani-
It's "sophisticated", and can never get tired of the beautiful view of Bologna!

Come back soon! We have a wide range of rooms configurations...so you should try them all! :-)

We stay in this hotel once year for the Cosmoprof show. The people are absolutely lovely and can never do enough for us. Every time we arrive its like being at home from home. Everything you need is right on the door step. And the hotel staff are always happy to give you advise on where to go and where to eat. And the rooms are nice and clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone stay in Bologna. They do not have a fitness centre or pool, hence the rating but its not a problem with such a lovely hotel.

Room Tip: They do have rooms with Balcony's. It's lovely to pop out there on a morning and take in the...

Booked after reading reviews on here and it met expectations. We didn't upgrade (and our room overlooking an inner courtyard was a little dark/gloomy) but we didn't mind as any free time relaxing was spent on the rooftop terrace. A perfect place to sit with a glass of prosecco watching the sun go down! Great location. Rooms good/clean. Staff all delightful and helpful - both beforehand when booking and during our stay, organising airport transfer (30 Euros for 4 of us) and suggesting places to eat. I would definitely recommend.
