The location was fantastic. We had a suite; and the room was enormous.
The breakfast room was very stuffy and hot. The bathroom smelled of drains from time to time.
Central, excellent value, quiet.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was fine. The hotel is old and could do with updating, but apart from that it is clean and fine to stay in.
Ideal central position. Quiet. Charmingly old fashioned. On 4th floor, balconies with sensational views over the city. Large rooms. Bologna an ideal city for art and food.
the rooms vary, and you have to check where you are being put. the telly didn't work atall well. the list price of the rooms is terrific, and you need the discount
Wifi in lounge and helpful receptionist!
Room was very small
Great location, helpful staff and good price - hard to beat!
A lot of noise from the street, and the squeaky floorboards did not help
Excellent location- we only stayed one night but took advantage of the parking on site & walking distance everywhere - even hike to St Luca. The hotel itself was OK- creaky floors, very old but clean. Breakfast was minimal but on par with expectations, I do cereal & yougurt. Tricky to get to but across the street from one of the yummy gelato places!
Stay for convience- not comfort. It is not a room where you would hang out in but the balcony offered some nice wiews- we had a new hatching of red ants so they were swarming the balcony - not ideal to hang out in just then.
The position is wonderful, close to the very center of Bologna, and the rooms are incredibly beautiful. The view from the terrace is also stupendous.
They offered us one of their best rooms. The gentlemen in reception desk was so kind and helpful. If I go to Bologna again for sure I choose this hotel.
Faded grandeur is the term most applicable. The hotel is a good 3 star and wins out on cost and location. Rooms are spacious.
En suites are a bit baisc. They were built into the existing rooms and have an unusually high step to enter. This did result in periodic tripping on entering,
good location and breakfast
noisy at night because of the cinema
Location is excellent for visiting the Bologna center
Furniture and fixtures are slightly tired. The building is from the 18 th century- nice, but the interiors need some upgrade
Location of the Palace is perfect - just a few steps from the heart of Bologna.It is easy to reach it on foot from the railway station: just take left, as you leave the staion, find the square with an ancient gate and a book market in it and walk along Independenza street for about 15 min untill you see Monte Grappa street going to your right.
In my room on the third floor I could hear TV operating in the nearby room.
Very nice breakfast in the morning.
A bit difficult to find, and not the most welcoming crew, but no real complaints.
the room and bathroom size, the tv service, bath tub and the breakfast were very good.
the floor was too noise in the room, the bed was a bit bent to one side, due to the fact it was old it looked a bit dirty.
