Great Boutique Hotel On The Canal
Staff was great!! No elevator but they assist you with your luggage to/from room... Bottle of Champagne was a nice touch!!!

Good 6.0
Ok for a short visit
The location is great, you can walk from the train station and it is pretty close to all the main tourist attractions. The hotel is old, but I guess ok for a short visit and just to go to sleep. The worst thing for me is that you can see mold in the bathroom. Breakfast was ok.

Amazing location and good value overall, beds were not very comfortable though and a fan in the room would have been good.

Good hotel, will visit again
Friendly staff, great breakfast, rooms were OK, bathroom was clean and dry, curtains keep black dark even in sunny weather. Good WiFi. A lot of shops and small restaurants nearby, the fruit shop was working until 10 pm. Although it's an old building it was warm and AC worked just great. The hotel street is small, but a bit noisy. So be prepared you won't sleep after 8:30 am. No great view, but who cares - we didn't come in Bologna to stay in the hotel.

Stay on October 10th
Great location to explore Bologna. The room was a little dated but was comfortable enough for a short stay. Breakfast was pretty good and the staff were friendly and helpful. Make sure you reserve a parking space with the hotel as otherwise parking is a nightmare.
