We loved this small, intimate hotel tucked away in an amazing part of the city. So walkable! What made it even more delightful was the staff. So helpful, so friendly and so good looking! Kudos to the hotel employers! We would definitely return. We weren’t quite as impressed with the food in the restaurant but a million choices are all around.

We had 5 nights at Cappello Rosso (as the locals call it) and the highlight was the friendly staff, behind the desk 24/7 and happy to help with anything from transport to restaurants to maps and advice. We had a 'superior room' which had a king size bed, big wardrobe and desk plus a rocking chair. The decor was ... unique (JFK theme) ... and the room had a little balcony which could be opened for fresh air. There is a guest lounge/ibrary on the ground floor which is very cozy if you wish to buy a bottle of something and just relax 'at home', play some cards or read a book. The area was very quiet so sleeping late was no problem! We took the breakfast option which was a nice easy way to start the day - the cafe in the hotel had a nice buffet with cereals, meats, fruit, pastries, juices and a small hot buffet. The breakfast cafe is open until 11 am and breakfast can be arranged early (from 5 am) if you have an early start. The hotel is located one street away from Piazza Maggiore, the main square in the old city center, and we walked everywhere during our stay, with many restaurants, cafes, museums and galleries within easy walking distance. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

The rooms were small, the air was shut off because of the war in Ukraine. The hotel is in walking distance of everything, except the train station. We had a train ride to Verona, needed a taxi, they failed to tell us there was an even in town, never got a taxi. We had to keep the windows open because it was hot in the room, so in the morning it got very noisy with all the activity in the side street.

Dear Michelle, first of all we would like to thank you for choosing our hotel and for taking few minutes to leave us your experience. We are sorry that you found the room at a temperature that was not ideal to allow you to rest properly, that you were disturbed in the morning by noise from outside but much more that you encountered inconveniences in finding taxi availability to reach the station which is from the hotel about 15-20 minutes on foot. We hope anyway that you can well understand that the service is not up to us and that it was an extraordinary situation that we could not foresee. On the other hand, we are pleased to read that the location in the historic heart of the city and the proximity to all the most significant points of interest in the city have been appreciated and have allowed you to visit it comfortably on foot.

Great location in center of town. Each room is different. The staff was wonderful and quick to help with restaurant reservations, directions, taxis, etc. Coffee was always available in the lobby. They even gave us a booklet with recipes in English for the local food. I would stay here again.

This is a lovely quirky individual hotel. Very clean and comfortable. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Food from the next door osteria is excellent (not included in the price) for breakfast lunch and dinner. All the staff were courteous and spoke English too. The location is excellent - close enough to be in the main square in a couple of minutes but it still was quiet with no noise from crowds.

Hotel Phi is a wonderful hotel with an amazing location, helpful welcoming staff, and reasonable rates. Just steps from the central piazza and fantastic restaurants and all the main attractions of Bologna. The rooms are fun yet tasteful with individually themed rooms adorned with accent/mood lighting and nice bathrooms.

Dear Dave, We are happy to read that you had a good and comfortable stay and specially to read your appreciation for our room so we like to share a little of history behind them: in recent years we have involved the artists who participated in the international festival of comics held here in Bologna in a project that involves the decoration and furnishing of each room with a different theme that has led our hotel to take on an unique look. The inspirations that led to the creation of the cinemas derive in some cases from nature, in others from the imagination and drawings of children and from the influences deriving from the world of both Italian and international cinema. We hope you can bring with you a pleasant memory of the experienced lived with us and we would like to Oue best regards. Phi Hotel Bologna

The room was quite expensive and I’m very poor repair, 108. The shower was not functioning. I had to use the handle part of the shower which subsequently sprayed water everywhere in the bathroom. After long trip you just want a comfortable room with working amenities. They sent up 2 repairer people who just looked at it and said, yes it’s very broken. Would not recommend.

Dear Gibran, thank you for choosing the Phi Hotel Bologna and for taking some minutes to write a review for us. We are sorry for the inconvenience encountered with the shower and that this completely ruined your experience at our hotel. Unfortunately, we have suffered a breakdown of the system which could not be repaired immediately and which we are sure you will understand we could not foresee. We are also sorry that you did not consider our proposal to assign you a replacement room of even higher category and free of charge as a viable solution, and still preferred to stay in the assigned room. We hope that you would like to give us a second chance in the future during which you can better appreciate our services and the attention we pay to our guests and we can leave you with a different opinion to the one you carry with you now. Kind regards. Phi Hotel Bologna

Dear guest, thanks for choosing the Phi Hotel Bologna and for leaving your experience that will give us the opportunity to offer an even better service. We are sorry that you did not like your assigned room and did not find it as well cared as we would have liked it to be. Each room is in fact different from the others and created by the artists taking part in the international comics festival so reflecting their own style and inspiration. But above all, we are sorry to read that our breakfast was not to your taste and up to your expectations; in fact, we try to vary the products we offer as much as possible so as to always guarantee something new and reflecting the current season being always as much attentive as possible on its quality. We are, indeed, happy that you had a comfortable rest and that you appreciate the hospitality and the service from our staff. We would be delighted if you would allow us another opportunity to be your guest, during which we would be happy to let you choose a room from our 33 that would be most appropriate to you and guarantee you an experience that will satisfy you completely. Best regards. Phi Hotel Bologna

But what honours us most is your appreciation for our staff who are at the heart of our hospitality and are always willing to ensure that our guests have the best possible stay experience. We would like to thank you for choosing our hotel and for sharing your review with all the community. We hope to have in the future other occasion to host you again. Our best regards.

We spent one night at this fantastic hotel at the end of our time in Italy - and wish we had been able to stay longer! Our room was wonderful - we loved the themed decor (in the Elsa Schiaparelli room), and the room was clean and comfortable. We took advantage of espresso in the reception area, as well as the breakfast buffet. Highlight of the hotel is its location - on a quiet, charming side street just one block off the Piazza Maggiore. We will definitely return, and we would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Bologna.
