Lovely hotel, great staff. However our stay was cut short by one day and we had to leave early, unfortunately the hotel still made us pay for the rooms we had booked, even though we didn't sleep there.

This was one of the noisier hotels I've been to, as the faux-marble floors conducted sound like nobody's business. Also, there was a wedding there the second night we stayed. The staff warned us prior to the visit, be reassured us it would be fine due to the "soundproof" (haha) windows that were installed, which didn't do quite as much...

Nice Place to stay in Bologna for a business trip. The villa is a real serene to stay. Away from the hustle and bustle of town. Natural surroundings make the place more beautiful and calm. Near to Airport just 30 mins make it convenient to reach

Dear Jola, Thank you very much for having written a review regarding our relais. Our villa was built in the sixteenth century, as well as the church. The 50 cm think walls are testimony of its advanced age! We have indeed made a complete restructuring in 2009, of both buildings, maintaining the style of the building and all the frescos...

Had to attend a fair in Bologna and the rooms there were so ridiculous that I tried this out - great find for me. A beautiful villa with very nice grounds and the drive to the fair if I left at the right time was only 16 minutes. Rooms were small but clean. The shower was rather tight but sufficient....

Extremely comfortable, tastefully appointed, modern hotel, with a super friendly staff who gives excellent recommendations. Large pool. Close to a nice public park (runners will appreciate). Restaurant is great (and good value too). A very good base to explore Bologna province.

Dear Lutetian, Thank you for your review and for the thoughtful words. The park you mention is indeed within walking distance. There is another one, larger, for hiking, about 10 minutes away, for breaking the vacation routine and alternate to the cityscape a half day of nature at its purest. Thank you for your visit, hope to see you again.

We spent 7 nights at the Villa Valfiore in June. It was truly wonderful.
