Just off the main sqare in Bolgna this was ideally suited to our needs. Everywhere in town centre within 20 min or so walking distance. The train station was our option for heading away from the city on day trips. No grand views as it is in a narrow street. We were in room 402 on the top floor; one... More

I thought this hotel was a gem. The rooms were very nice (not super teeny like many hotels in Italy), the pillow menu was great, beds were comfy, bathrooms were spacious (with quite a large shower), and location was wonderful- central without being noisy. I thought the value was great as well. We were only able to have breakfast here... More

Our family stayed in three different rooms in this small hotel on a side street in an excellent location in Bologna. The rooms were all decorated differently and my kids loved it there. You are in walking distance to a lot of great restaurants and shops when you stay at this quirky hotel that has a great feel. I wish... More

the hotel is bang in the centre of Bologna the rooms all have a theme/decoration which makes them interesting and unique breakfast is spectacular the restaurant is open to the public, and manages to achieve that rare distinction of feeling like a 'proper' restaurant, rather than an adjunct of the hotel the staff were helpful, particularly on the last day,...

Superb location close to Piazza Maggiore. Quirky themed rooms. Good breakfast included in the room rate. Breakfast is in the restaurant next door linked to the hotel. We also had 1 evening meal there which was of a good quality and good value. Best tiramisu ever!!!

We stayed in Bologna 3 days at the end of august and wanted a centrally located hotel. The location is perfect, right next to the central square and convenient for walking everywhere within the city walls. Our room was the cheapest double rom (classic) and a good size and with an excellent bed. There was also a nice bathroom, good... More

As previously mentioned by others the hotel is fabulously situated literally around the corner to Piazza Maggiore. We arrived a little early for room availability but we were checked in along with bags. Friendly helpful staff who suggested a walk into the square for a coffee whilst our rooms became available. Once in our room we were pleasantly surprised with... More

Hotel is right in the centre of Bologna, right off the Piazza Maggiore and within walking distance of most attractions. The apartment was very large with separate kitchen, bathroom and sitting room with sofa bed, but located in an annex a couple of doors down from the main hotel. Great bars and restaurants nearby along with sights, shopping etc. Because... More
