Had a good time staying there, friendly personnel, great location (10-15 minute walk to centro storico), decent parking options nearby (or at the hotel, as you wish), room had everything you needed for a good and thorough city trip to enjoy phenomenal food to scenic historic sights.

Hotel location is very good: close to the central railway station (just 7-8 min walk) in the quiet street. The (double) room is quite big and the bathroom is amazing. The room have nice furniture and all you need (mini bar, TV, good WiFi...) Hotel interior is fantastic, from wall paintings to the breakfast restaurant, all that gives very pleasant ambient. Breakfast was fantastic with very various food, espresso, cappuccino, tea, various juices... At the end, most important: staff was very very nice and very helpful. All credits to them! Now I know in what hotel I will stay for next Bologna visit.

We just got back from staying at the hotel for 19 days for the third year in a row! The owner Giancarlo and Isabella and the staff make you feel like family. 5 minutes from the major train station. Florence in 35 minutes and Venice in an hour or so. The hotel is wonderful and Bologna is the best there is in Italy for a real Italian experience without the tourist feel. .Breakfast at the hotel is delightful and the cappuccino is a nice way to start the day. i can't recommend the hotel enough. It's like staying with family!

Conveniently located close to the train station and in a quite local street. 20 mins walk to town centre. Very welcoming. Room was clean and comfortable and has been modernised. This is quite a querky place especially the dining room with its chicken theme. The breakfast was self service and had so many choices. There are several good places to eat nearby. Package with BA holidays and in December was exceedingly good value.

The location is perfect for travelling and the breakfast is good, but customer service at the front desk is poor and the smell in the room disgusting. The sewer smell in the room was really terrible. It was stinking heavilly throughout the whole visit and all our things started to stink as well. We complained to the front desk but they told us they they don’t have another room. The manner and attitude of the staff at the front desk were off putting.
