This hotel was recommended to us by friends, and it exceeded expectations. We were greeted by Chiara and Erico, who were incredibly friendly and helpful, as were everyone we met who work there. Strada Maggiore can be noisy (personally I like the hustle and bustle) if your room is at the front, but double glazing blocks out all noise, and the air conditioning was much appreciated. Breakfast was delightful, and included in the price of the room.
The hotel is well located, being a short walk from the beautiful Santo Stefano, and only 10 minutes from Piazza Maggiore. The train station is easily accessible by bus, and relatively cheap by taxi. If you are up for longish walk, the portico up to San Luca is well worth the effort, but a taxi back down helps!
We found 2 terraces at the hotel, which are a bonus, and there is a wonderful view from the very top one.
Bologna itself is one of the friendliest cities I've ever visited, with a fascinating history, so I'll definitely return and will stay at Hotel Pedrini again.
