    good breakfast- nice & friendly staff - good location in the centre of the town...

    the room looked a bit faded and dull

    Fabulous

    The location is excellent, very close to all the main attractions and shops and within easy walking distance from the railway station. The staff are very courteous and helpful. The room is very spacious and comfortable.

    The buffet breakfast is very measley and the choice is very poor, although the little that is offered is very fresh. The bathroom is in need of refurbishment and modernization as the drains gave out a nasty smell.

    Fabulous

    the huge room under the roof with excellent large double bed, the lovely view from the window, very polite and smiling staff, location 2 mns walk from the main piazza

    it was a bit dark in the bathroom and no shower gel, just soap

    Fabulous

    Unbeatable location, a minute from Piazza Maggiore. Safe, if you're travelling on your own. Friendly and helpful staff who speak English and French very well. The room was nice, had everything I needed. Hotel has a nice old-style decor.

    No minibar in my room (fridge there but empty). However, they do have vending machines on every floor.

    Superb

    The Hotel is right in the middle of the historic centre. Nice spacious room with a nice bathroom with a tub. I looks like the hotel was recently done up. The carpet looked new (compared to last year) and there was a big 32 inch flat screen TV in the room. The lobby is a comfortable place to relax with a drink after a days sight seeing. Free Wi-Fi in the lobby. Breakfast has a good variety of croissants and sweet pastry , bread rolls, cheese, Mortadella, Fruit Juice, Yoghurts, fresh Fruit and good coffee. The best Restaurant in Bologna is just across the Street and a bit further down" Da Nello's. Some of the double rooms on the 3rd or 4th floor have a balcony from where you have a nice view. The staff at the reception and bar and breakfast room are very gracious and friendly.

    There was no red wine at all available at the bar.

    The hotel is right in the middle of Bologna. Friendly staff. The room on the upper floor (attic) had an excellent view over Bologna. Good value for price (I had a cheap rate). You could rent bikes, and Bologna is a real biking town, busy but with bike lanes.

    The interior decoration of the room could have been better. The room will be very warm in summer, because situated under the roof.

    Wifi in the very posh lobby as well as the location in the city.

    Locaton is excellent. Staff is very nice and helpful. The included breakfast was good. We had a terasse with a nice view, but they should clean it properly and put some chairs out there.

    A filthy terasse with no furniture

    Very good

    Centrally located, within walking distance of the main Piazza and restaurants big room, high ceiling, with a balcony, big double bed, comfortable mattress, big and clean wc with a huge bathtub!, Excellent parking in the hotel basement, well-secured parking access.

    Surely the hotel needs a huge renovation, the flooring of our room was squeeky and noisy, carpets along the corridors and common areas of the hotel have shown signs of wear and tear. We can imagine that the hotel was once grand! Do not expect so much of the hotel buffet breakfast but the freshly baked croissants were excellent and the coffee machine did its best to provide good capuccino and macchito.

    The hotel is very old so you have creaking floor boards and at 3 in the morning a ventilater in the bathroom went on which did not stop, so we had to change room at 4 in the morning because of the noise, I would not stay at this hotel again.

    Good

    The location. The building is nice, but only from outside and the lobby. The furniture is also nice.

    The carpets are horrible, there are ugly tubes in the corridors, the wifi is 90% not available in the room, the bathroom is small but acceptable. The smell of the cleaning stuff they use is horrible. Every evening there was a strange noise that is difficult to explain and the origin was also strange, but it was definitely not from outside. The noise stopped around 00.30 am, till then it was not possible to sleep.

    Very good

    The location was absolutely great.. in the centre. A few minutes away from the centre square. The top floor offered nice views. This hotel is good for single people wanting to explore Bologna, go shopping, or people doing business in the city.

    This hotel is not very good for long stay - it is a bit dingy, outdated in terms of rooms and general decorations - rather basic. I would not recommend it also for familes with small children.
