Il convento has so much to offer. We have stayed there twice - the first time in a smaller but still very lovely room and the second in a two level, two bathroom large suite. Both occasions we have experienced hospitality at its best- professional, courtious, helpful and caring staff. They are always ready to advise, direct and ensure that...

We stayed at this hotel for a girls weekend and it was excellent. The location is an easy 10 mins walk from the centre of the city, which gives you a chance to see and experience the beautiful architecture. Twof of us shared the junior suite gold, and the other two had the larger suite. Both were beautiful, stylish and...

We paid €220 for a Junior Suite at this boutique hotel with only about 10 rooms in two floors. The room surprised us in two ways: firstly it was very beautiful with focus on modern italian design from furniture to lighting. Secondly it was a bit smaller than expected when booking a suite. The bathroom was huge with a very...

I stayed 3 nights in the Convento dei Fiori di Seta and can only recommend this little hotel. Very tastefully furbished rooms, extremely friendly and helpful staff, central location in a small, gladly not too busy street - which is however my reason for giving only 4 points for the sleep quality. I am sensible to noise and as my...

Great small hotel, smartly designed. The staff was extra helpful, specially Monica, who gave us very good restaurant reccomendations. She even found out where I could get a perfume that I was looking for and could't find in any of the perfume shops in Bologna.

We spent a night at the Hotel in June 2009. Our trip was meant to be short and romantic and we were pleased by the comfortable, silent and stylish room assigned, with a tiny balcony overlooking an internal patio. Bed, linen and towels were high quality, something I usually tend to notice. Breakfast was served in our room, on time...

We spent 3 nights at this hotel having made the reservation several months ago. A recent Trip Advisor report posted after the reservation did make me wonder whether we had made the right decision. We need not have worried. Of course, different people have different ideas and experiences may also differ. Our own views/experiences are ... A small 10 room...

We humoulessly renamed this hotel "Non conveniento fordi city centrum" It's a 1000m plus from the main square along narrow streets. OK in the day but not at night.

I stayed in this nice small hotel, during three days in February. The hotel turned out to be a potentially quite charming place, with rooms coverted with good taste in modern design. Good location. Located in the city's medival centre. 10 min walk from the main attractions. The hotel stated on it's website that it has a parking. Arriving close...

“Downstairs rooms probably a little quieter. With air conditioning we were not aware of the traffic outside in our first floor room.”
