The staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast offers a good choice. The rooms are extremely clean and the location is excellent - it is only a 2-3 minute walk to Piazza Maggiore. I would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

This hotel is situated in the very centre of Bologna just a couple of minutes walk from Piazza Maggiore. And its location is exactly what you are paying for. The hotel is situated on the 3rd floor of a building located just off the main street going through the centre of the city. It's very basic but clean. We had... More

A central location, as the name suggests, and an extremely popular accommodation. Listed as a 2-star hotel, but better than many 3-star hotels. The staff were friendly and obliging, and there was plenty of humour in their dealings with guests. The breakfast was varied and plentiful, and several staff were always on duty. We had Room 15, up a flight... More

Central location, perfect for tourism, building is historic and very charming, staff were very accommodating and nice people. It is a 2 star hotel and very affordable. Bathrooms are small, beds are not the best. But your here for the food and drink and history. I recommend staying here.

This was a very clean and friendly 2 star hotel right in the centre of Bologna, just two minutes walk from the main square Piazza Maggiore. Breakfast (included) was good, especially the pastries. Our bed was large and comfortable and the double-glazing kept out the noise of the busy street satisfactorily. Free wifi worked very quickly.

Hotel is a bit of a walk from the Central Train station (20 minutes) - but ideal in its location to the major city Plaza Piazza Maggiore and all the winding, interesting side streets with Bistro's, Cafe's and shopping. Note that the hotel is off a side street, then up on the 3rd and 4th floor of the building. You... More

We stayed here for 10 days and visited all over Emilia Romagna. Hotel was a three minute walk from Piazza Maggiore. We had a room at the front with a balcony. It could be a bit noisy at night but the views over the rooftops was worth it. The room was quite big and we had an ensuite. The shower... More

This is a most sympathetic hotel. Agree with all positive details mentioned in the previous posts so would refrain from repeating everything which had been already said. This is a 2* hotel - and yet staff (family members?) is attentive, breakfast satisfying; in short a place to stay without hesitation.

My wife & I have just returned from Bologna and found the hotel an ideal place to stay. Very reasonably priced with large clean rooms and comfy beds. Well stocked breakfast and attentive staff throughout who were always willing to help in a professional manner. Only downside was no kettle in room so one night when we couldn't sleep we... More
