The B&B's name, L'Isola di Alcina, comes from the fresco in our bedroom which was painted by Nicolò dell'Abate and is dated to the mid-16th century. Parts of this fresco are now kept in Bologna's Pinacoteca Nazionale. It portrays a scene taken from the poem Orlando Furioso in which the sorceress Alcina makes all travellers, including Ruggero, welcome in her Palace. A place where guest

If you want to maximize your experience in Bologna, you MUST stay here! Ideally located in the heart of Bologna (walkable to train station), this 1600s palace is a truly special place. Piero-Francisco and Maria Christina, the owners and hosts, made every effort to welcome us and assist us in anything we needed. The room was very uniquely decorated and very comfortable. The bed linens were exquisite. Breakfast was so tasty with an assortment of many tasty items. The palace is decorated with renaissance period artwork and truly outstanding antiques. If you are traveling to Bologna, you cannot miss this experience. We have traveled to Europe many times and this place rates at the top!

After a disastrous Airbnb stay with my parents, I needed to quickly find a hotel that had two rooms with air con and would allow us to immediately check in. I called L’Isola di Alcina, and that single phone call started an amazing trip for my family and I that we will never forget. The hotel is a former palace, about a three-minute walk from the main piazza. You could not ask for a better location. To say the hotel is breathtaking would be a massive understatement - think stunning artwork, gorgeous chandeliers, lush furnishings. Even the tall, colorful ceilings took our breath away. We booked two rooms, which were incredibly spacious and comfortable. We had seating areas, large, modern bathrooms, dreamy beds, and, especially important for my parents, air con. What really made this one of our favorite hotel stays ever (no exaggeration) were our hosts. Such incredibly kind and thoughtful people. We felt so cared for by them, and we enjoyed their stories about the history of the building. Last point - the breakfast is out of this world. A feast for queens and kings. Fresh bread and cakes, mounds of delicious fruits and cheeses, and the best fresh orange juice you can imagine. Stay here - you will never forget this hotel. We are already planning to return next year. This hotel is what holidays are made for.
