Just 2 blocks off Pizza Maggiore in the heart of Bologna, this is a wonderful place to stay. Our room was very modern and comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful, the breakfast has lots of choices, and well-placed sculptures make the hotel visually pleasing.

Stayed two nights in superior room. We arrived and temperature was 40 degrees and were worried about the air conditioning.

Not the cheapest hotel but you get what you pay...

An amazing hotel set practically in the middle of Bologna. We took two rooms on the top floor, that were booked through our travel agent in Rome and can honestly say they were truly our favourite hotel rooms EVER. We loved this Hotel and would love to return one day soon.

This was our second stay that the Art Hotel Novocento. It did not disappoint. The location is superb, just a short stroll away from Piazza Maggiore. It's surprising that this hotel can be so close to the pulsing heart of Bologna but still seem fairly quiet. Maybe that's because it's next to the Questore (which all you Donna Leon fans...

This hotel is a gem, a very short walk from the main central square in Bologna. It's a small hotel in the center of town, situated at the end of a quiet almost sleepy square. The room was compact, but quite comfortable, but as with many European city hotels, a "king bed" is in reality two "twin beds" butted against...

We found this hotel from trip advisor and spent a long weekend with my girl friends in this fabulous city. The front desk was very friendly. A typical ladies' group we changed first the arrival dates then the number of rooms reserved then this then that, they always stayed helpful and found a solution for our never ending updates.

Very central, next to the main square, yet nicely ticked away. Very easy access to the train station - 2-3 minutes by cab or 15 minutes stroll pretty much on a single street, rolling the bag down a tile - smooth surface. The front desk service is competent, attentive,kind and very helpful. Very pleasant breakfast in an art reading-room setting....

First the good: The front desk staff could not have been more polite or helpful. They were all quite charming. The location of this hotel is superb - literally three minutes stroll from the hub of Bologna, the Piazza Maggiore. Breakfast, too, was excellent. Ample fruit, meats, cheeses, coffees, cakes and all the trimmings. Now the bad: The bed in...

A dive into Europe of the 1930s, its rooms and suites are characterised by a design that blends the sobriety of form with the richness of substance, with a result that is rich with personality. And also.. At the Bologna Art Hotels you will have the opportunity to enjoy the city in a unique way.
