Nice and spacy room, really clean bathroom, really close to Piazza Maggiore, lovely smell of jasmin flowers...good and tasty breakfast, great internet! I read a lot about how nice the staff was and the tips they gave, maybe my expectations were too high, but when I asked for a map no tip was given whatsoever. Only complain is that I...

Great welcome when we arrived, lady on reception explained that the reception is manned 24 hours a day, was great at answering all our questions and was genuinly pleased that we were showing an interest in Bologna. Gave us a map and guidebook. Whilst we were in the hotel it was my birthday and we returned to the room where...

Spent a few days here and loved this hotel. Really pretty and comfortable room in a lovely building. The staff were all very friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations and advice about the city.

This a lovely traditional hotel in the back street of Bologna. Rooms were a little basic but nice. The best part is the beautiful courtyard area you can eat breakfast in and relax before the evening. The staff and service excellent. A great place to chill with a glass of presecco after a busy day walking!

A collection of odd buildings strung together with outside walkways. Staff is very helpful and friendly. My room was hot but I could easily open a window at night to be very comfortable. Mattress was too hard and for me but others could like it. In all the hotel was clean and well maintained.

Generally friendly staff, convenient location to the sites (10 minute walk to Place Maggiore). Less convenient to the train station but can be reached by bus, a 20-minute ride away. The hotel comprises an older collection of buildings with somewhat awkward passageways and connections. Our room was in the back and required going through the garden and then breakfast veranda...

This hotel is a great place to stay in Bologna. Only a 10 minute walk to the main square. The breakfast is huge and has everything you want. The staff are super friendly and very helpful. It's nice that it's on a quiet street away from all the noise of the city. Such a nice respite to come home to....

Several reviewers have described this hotel as "quirky" but I can't think of a better term. It's an odd assemblage of connected buildings on a side street and the distinction of what is an indoor from what is an outdoor space is quite burry. The room we stayed in has a bunch of weird corners and projections. The room size...

This is actually called a B&B, but it is really a small hotel (about 30 rooms) but only provides breakfasts and not other main meals. The staff are multi-lingual, with excellent English. They are very knowledgeable about Bologna and could not have been more friendly and helpful. There is an instant feeling of welcome and friendliness whilst staying there. The...
