Sweet hotel staff! Very informative, and helpful. Quick access to the main sites to Bologna via about a 10-15 minute walk. Terrace view is stunning. I stayed in panoramic room 6th floor. Note: there are NO coffee pots in the panoramic room. 😔

The room was nice and the bed was very spacious and the breakfast was quite good. We also liked the lounge area and the rooftop. However we felt that it was a little bit far from the centre, we didn´t like having to pay 10 euros for the room service to be brought up, the tourist infromation we were given...

Clean, ample and a short walk from Bologna centre. We requested a city facing room, which was spacious and comfortable. Roof terrace was nice but spent most of our time outside the hotel. Simple, good value option.

I can not compliment the staff that works the front desk enough. They make this hotel a good value. They are very knowledgeable about the sites and can recommend good restaurants. The hotel is on the edge of the old town so it is very convient.
