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. The hotel is beautiful with a small courtyard and the lobby area tastefully decorated. Check in was a breeze- the front desk personnel very friendly and polite. The room was not too...

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...

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...

This hotel is very tired and if it hadn't been prepaid I would not have stayed. We were given a choice of jacuzzi room or terrace superior room upon arrival. The dank, fusty smell in the jacuzzi room made that unacceptable and so we chose the terrace room. Bathroom is the best part of the room and was clean and...

Hotel convenient for a short time, eg. for weekend. Nice hotel near the railway station. Helpful service and delicious breakfast. Wallpaper in the rooms have a little dark colors. Towels were not changed daily.

We stayed at this hotel for a long weekend break and we were very pleased when we arrived. A very quaint hotel tucked away in a quiet courtyard with outside seating. Reception staff were helpful and courteous and nothing was too much trouble. A short walk from the train station and a 15 minute walk from the centre of Bologna....

Lovely hotel very stylish and a bit quirky (in a good way) Close to the train station and about a 15 min walk to Bologna centre. Great choice for breakfast and plenty of it (pastries ,cheese , meat , fruit cereal etc) and all very fresh. The rooms were very clean and good value with a restocked mini bar. Staff...

Just passing through from England to our farmhouse near Orvieto. This time we decided to travel by train. This hotel is very close to the main line station and [apparently] the city centre where there is lots to see. We had a very welcome greeting, the room was fine and good value and the breakfast excellent. Interesting and exuberant decor,...
