Very Good8.0
Great location and friendly staff
Really happy with the customer service. Erena working at the front desk was friendly and very helpful. Hotel is walking distance from all the Bologna sights which is great. We booked a classic room and got upgraded to a junior suite free of charge which was such a nice surprise. It is worth mentioning that room 101 ("cheap" style room), might not be to everyone's taste though and if we did pay the extra amount for that room, we would have been disappointed. Finally, rooms have nice amenities and the hotel offers room service from the kitchen downstairs which is a nice option for when you feel like a stay in and want a break from all the wine and dining!

Long weekend in Bologna
Centrally located in the old town just off the main square, this is the perfect hotel for your weekend break.

Great Location
This is a great hotel. The location was really central and the staff were very helpful. We loved our room - reasonably spacious by Italian hotel standards, and the decor was really quirky. The bathroom had everything you could need and the fluffy towels were changed every day. On our arrival we were given a guide book to Bologna with useful street maps, much more detailed than the ones in the tourist office. They also had recipe books and great book marks with quotes from famous residents over the hotel's illustrious history. If we go to Bologna again, we will definitely stay at this hotel.
