Very freindly staff, good location, very good service good rate
The hotel was very well situated, just off the main square. The rooms were very clean and that cleanliness was maintained throughly throughout our stay. The hotel lobby was very modern and the staff were very pleasant.
The rooms were fairly small, but that isn't too big a problem. And they only had one English speaking channel on the tv!!! Again, not really a big problem. It would have been nice to have had a bath in the room.
shower too old (room 209)
Good location in the center of Bologna. The Hotel is very clean. Rooms are small but comfortable. It's a perfect hotel to explore this beautiful city.
Breakfast could be better.
Perfect hotel location. Modern hotel with excellent services. Very helpful staff. Good price for high quality of hotel.
The room was comfortable, spacious and clean The staff wrte extremely kind and helpful.
Location is right off Maggiore Plaza and is very convenient for sight-seeing in Bologna. We stayed there with a heavily reduced price offered on the internet.
Noise from the street (our room was on the street side) is heard in the rooms. However, during the one night we stayed there there was not much going on the street, only occasional bypassers.
Very comfortable and quiet hotel in a very central location close to all the main sights. The staff were very kind and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was excellent with the friendliest and kindest breakfast staff. Highly recommend this hotel.
I chose this hotel because the description of the rooms said they were decorated by local artists and the picture were very nice. I haven't got the room I have booked and whose picture were pubblished on Booked.net, they use the picture of the design rooms only for convincing turists but, at the end you'll get a normal room slightly over expensive. I booked a double room with a single big bed that, unpleasantly, was made by two small matrasses put together so it wasn't very confortable. Although it was a double room in the bathroom there was only one bathrobe
Hotel Staff are excellent and very supportive for any enquiries. Very good location and nice atmosphere.
Have stayed at the hotel on several occasions over the years. Location is number 1. Unfortunatly our flights are too early to sample breakfast so we have no opinion about that. Staff very professional,courteous and knowledgable of city sights and restaurants. The new City tax for travellers is 5 euros at this time, paid in cash at time of checkout.
proximity to the wonderful city centre of Bologna great value accommodation, breakfast nice too comfortable rooms
Excellent location. Quirky room design - quirky in a good way!
Perhaps the breakfast timing could be extended a bit. Maybe I am lazy.
Very well situated, close to all the amenities in this beautiful city. Staff were very helpful in pointing us in the right direction for the best food.
The air conditioning did not work
Luxury hotel and you step out into the main tourist piazzas and have a good buzz from the city life. We didn't have a artist-decorated room but the normal ones were fine if you like red and gold. Lovely bathroom. Turn down service too.
Narrow roads to approach it (we came by car) quite an experience! The rooms are small but that's what you get in city centre hotels.
