We were staying at another hotel during the World Cup and the TV coverage failed when England were playing so we went out to find somewhere we could eat and watch the game. This hotel had a big convention of scientists staying that evening but, as we walked past, a member of staff asked if they could help us. We ended up eating in the hotel Bistro, watching the game with a small dining area almost to ourselves. We enjoyed a delicious meal (one of the best steaks I have ever had) and a good bottle of wine. The staff could not have been more helpful, particularly Pascual, and we had a lovely evening. If only England had own, it would have been perfect.

One night, with 2 children, great room, wonderful breakfast. Great front desk. SO SO SO helpful. Parking on site. Free wifi. Missed their great restaurant as we arrived on a Monday but saw the women making fresh pasta...a real treat! Concierge sublime...recommended a fabulous small family restaurant and we had the best meal ever. Thank you again. We love Bologna and would stay here again.

This hotel is quite expensive but it is in a great location. The room we had was very large and clean. We had breakfast served in our room on one morning which was nice. The staff were helpful and friendly. I would recommend this hotel to couples.

Magnificent property with exceptional service. We just happened to be there during Ducati's roll out of their new motor cycle. The hotel was exceptionally busy but staff did not miss a beat. We stayed in the Imperial Suite an immense space with 2/br, 2/ba and a spiral staircase leading to a private roof terrace. Perfect location for exploring Bologna with on site parking. Our new go to property in Bologna.

This is a very nice hotel within easy walking distance of all the sights. It was also easy to access by car and had parking. We had a lovely modern room overlooking a quiet area. We even had a small balcony which unfortunately we could not use due to rain. The staff were very helpful. We chose the hotel because of the restaurant and were not disappointed. Our meal was very good.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room. Some rooms overlook the main street and are therefore noisier.

I spent only one night in this Hotel for business reasons. The hotel is really downtown at few meters from the central train station and so easily reachable also from the Bologna airport. The lobby is very modern and nice. Staff is really attentive and kind. The breakfast room is really to visit (breakfast is nice too). Rooms are very large, tidy and clean but with not modern furnitures. I had stairs inside the room that make not really convenient the space utilization. Price of the stay very good considering the offer. In summary a place I'd go again for business and pleasure.

We only stayed one night but really enjoyed this hotel. It is very well located in the centre of town and is great value. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. We dined at the bistro as, unfortunately, the restaurant is closed on a Sunday night, but we were really impressed with the food and had our first experience of genuine tagliatelle alla Bolognese! We found the staff welcoming and helpful and would definitely return.
