Within easy walking distance to great restaurants and shops. The staff were very helpful and the breakfast great. The rooms were nice - a little stuffy as they had not yet turned on A/C but other than that it was fine and I would go back.

We spent a few days in Bologna and decided to stay in this absolutely great hotel. What a good choice we made! We stayed in the junior suite and enjoyed all the luxeries of a huge room, inclusive a jet bath tub and a balcony. The staff is brilliant, do not hesitate to ask how to go to some places...

Good location for able walking access to the centre of the City, and the train station and buses. Nice traditional Italian style. Great breakfast room and continental offerings. Good staff throughout. Suspect the fourth star is for the Spa that they have somewhere as have stayed at far more luxurious 3* hotels in Itay. Booked basic rooms on floors 1...

The hotel does look much when seen from the street but do not let this but you off as there is a pleasant courtyard behind. Location is quiet, away from the main road. My room was compact, with only a metal rack for clothes, but the bathroom was large in comparison and well-equipped. It was on the third floor and...

The hotel is ideally placed for the train station and a pleasant walk into the historic city centre. The rooms are individual in their décor and a little quirky which is fun. The staff are incredibly helpful and seem genuinely interested in making your stay as comfortable as possible. They have a wealth of knowledge about where to go and...

I stayed with a group friends for a 4 night city break. Overall I was delighted with the hotel. The staff are particularly helpful and pleasant, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms vary, some are a bit dark and small, very typical of Italian hotels. My room was fine with ample wardrobe space,mini bar,safe and very clean. The decor...

Location behind mainline station so ideal for day trips to other town. Nice walk to Bol0gna centre. Very helpful, friendly staff. Excellent breakfasts. Cosy little bar area. Stayed 3 nights and rooms are small but enough storage for short breaks. Bathroom had everything you need. Would stay again

This boutique hotel is a 10 minute walk from the train station in a quiet neighborhood. The staff is friendly and know English. Our room with 2 very small single beds was adequate- large people will find the beds too small. The only problem with the room was the toilet was set too high on the wall, my feet dangled....

Stayed at this hotel recently and was impressed. The location is ideal as right behind the mainline Station and within walking distance to the shopping and tourist areas.

Stayed one night on way home. Pleasant welcome though room very small and odd so- called balcony surrounded with green meshing and no view. Asked to be upgraded but had prepaid ( more than the hotel's own room costs) so reluctant to pay much more. Good shower but nowhere to hang clothes or unpack. Not really a 4* hotel in...
