Just a short distance from the two Towers and Piazza Maggiore, in the serene setting of medieval Bologna, you will find the Hotel Corona d'Oro 1890. Its peaceful location, just a hundred meters from the two towers, is the perfect base for your visit to Bologna: its elegant furnishings and magnificent frescoes, together with a staff that is exceptionally attentive to your needs, will make your stay at our Hotel unforgettable. The palazzo, which in the 15th century was the prestigious residence of the noble Azzoguidi family, traces its origins to the 13th century. The hotel takes the visitor on a journey through various stylistic and architectural eras: from the magical art deco in the lobby, back to the frescoes of coats of arms and landscapes from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, and back still further to the medieval severity of the coffered ceilings which adorn the Azzoguidi conference hall and the stately portico outside. The thoroughly renovated Hotel Corona d'Oro provides upscale amenities that ensure a luxurious and comfortable stay, fitting for even the most discerning of guests. It also offers first-class suites and spaces for conferences, meetings, and exhibitions, all of which feature independent access.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Stayed in October. Good location right in the center in a nice neighbourhood. Very nice rooms and lobby. Breakfast good (I've seen other reviewers complain about slow service and whilst I didn't order any of the hot dishes so don't know how long they took, the coffee always came pretty promptly). Hotel's restaurant very good (though perhaps a bit expensive compared to what you can find of equivalent quality nearby). Service great.

My wife, her friend and I stayed last night and had a wonderful experience. The staff, rooms, bar and restaurant were all excellent. We decided to have cocktails and dinner in the hotel because the weather was so bad and it was a great decision.

The best things about this hotel are the location (very central) and how clean the bathroom was. The breakfast service was poor. Just one member of staff serving so we had to wait ages and most things were cleared away 15 mins before the end of service. We asked the hotel receptionist to make a restaurant reservation which somehow slipped through the net. We never did find out why. The hotel is overpriced and overrated and I would save your money and stay somewhere else.

Response from Michele Piazzolla, Direttore generale at Hotel Corona d'Oro 1890
Responded 2 weeks ago
Dear Tibby Elmwood, I am very regretful for what happened during your stay. You are right, there was an issue at breakfast, and it is only appropriate for us to own up to it. Unfortunately, one of our colleagues had to be absent from work last minute and we didn’t manage to fill in this gap. Furthermore, there was a failure to communicate on our staff’s part regarding the reservation you requested. In fact, we are now applying some variations on our procedures for giving out communications to guests to avoid this type of mistakes. I assure you that our standard is unlike what occurred. Our staff is praised by our guests for their attentiveness, cordiality and helpfulness. We always invite our valued guests to immediately express their concerns, to speak and to inform the management and staff when something happens in order to find a solution and to solve any issue and inconvenience, because sometimes it can happen. If you ever decide to give us another chance, we will welcome you with great pleasure and humility. It would be an important occasion for us to do better. Best regards Michele Piazzolla GM Hotel Corona D’Oro

Perfect location near old town center but on a quiet street. Reception is very helpful. Decor is not standard hotel-issue but beautifully furnished with Old World charm and modern conveniences. Nice entry atrium. Room was quiet, as requested.

Great location. Quirky hotel. A few different levels inside, so quite a few stairs. There is a lift taking you to certain floor levels. Friendly staff, especially tall young man in the breakfast room, who spoke fantastic English. For a 4* star hotel, there was not complimentary water in the room each day. That was disappointing and not what we were used to. Bedroom was nice, but smaller than in the photos. Bed/pillows very comfy. Noisy outside each morning with lorry emptying bottles very early. The breakfast room was probably the best room in the hotel. Very elegant. Nice food, but for a 4* hotel, no freshly squeezed orange juice, but instead very weak and poor tasting juice offered. Service at breakfast was usually very busy, so on your first morning you didn’t know the drill ie. What was and wasn’t included (scrambled eggs are, but fried egg is not!). Only two waiters serving and even though they tried their best, it usually took quite a bit of time for the coffees to arrive. The hot water for tea was not boiling, so the tea did not diffuse. The scrambled eggs, along with the bacon and fresh vegetables were absolutely delicious.

Excellent location - excellent people - service/ friendliness of staff is great… A big but : classic room is too small - congested for amount you are paying- we paid 235e/day where process were up to 500+ e /d for the next week; hotel rooms are rather aged, toilets have some strange humid smell. Try to get an upgrade to a more decent size… I hate the very basic amenities i.e. powder coffee replenished only by request-

Great location! In the middle of everything. The rooms were small but well fitted and very clean. The people at the front desk were incredibly nice and responsive. We felt very welcome and enjoyed our stay. The restaurant in lobby was OK for breakfast but very fine for dinner service.

james b wrote a review Nov 2022
We had a great experience and give this hotel the highest recommendation: 1. Rooms and common areas (lobby, atrium, hallways, breakfast room/restaurant, outdoor bar patio) are beautiful and in excellent condition. 2. Guest room was good size, very well appointed, good closets etc.. Bath was excellent except for shower/tub which could be updated (worked perfectly but need to step over bath tub side to enter shower). 3. Service was OUTSTANDING!!. 1. Our requests for service were responded to promptly and always solved the small issues we had. 2. Front desk staff (especially Roberto) took care of everything (restaurant recommendations that fit our tastes and budget), directions, transportation, you name it). Hotel is well located near two towers and piazza maggiore but on a quiet side street/neighborhood that has restaurants, shopping historic buildings etc. We have recommended this to our friends and will absolutely stay there again when we are in Bologna.

Everything about this hotel was excellent. It was beautiful. There was elegance everywhere. The room was very comfortable. The hotel is located where it is easy to walk to many of the attractions and restaurants. All the staff was friendly and helpful with directions and suggestions for dinner and maps and reservations. Breakfast was included and lovely. A well presented buffet and eggs made to order. We also sat at the bar which was quite nice. It was a wonderful experience as our first time to Bologna and I would highly recommend.
