stayed three nights in this lovely simple, but comfortable small hotel. Excellent for our city trip and close to shops, musea and restaurants and all sights. Would only like to have less noise from breakfast room, as there is no carpet or curtain to "soak" the noise... Would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Bologna for a short stay.

Clean, spacious, delicious & plentiful breakfast. Close to the sights of Bologna (just a few blocks walk). Would stay here again in a heartbeat and highly recommend this accommodation to anyone visiting Bologna.

I booked a room at Mua`based on other reviews and I was not disappointed. The hotel is located only 10 mins on foot from the main square in a lively neighborhood, however the hotel is very quiet. The decor is minimalist and soothing. The hotel has just 7 rooms and ours was large and very quiet. The breakfast was very... More

Mua is a very modern, clean and well located boutique hotel hidden in an old building in a quite unattractive lane. We stayed for 2 nights. As it was between seasons the air conditioning was not switched on. The first night we did not sleep well because our room was very hot and stuffy. We could not leave the window... More

We went to Bologna for an exhibition and we stayed at the Mua for one night. This B&B is situated in a small lane in downtown Bologna (5 minutes walk to Piazza Maggiore or Palazzo Fava where the exhibition is). There is no sign on the door but only on the bell plate. The owner is very helpful in giving... More

Great place to stay. Good location for exploring the city and easy to get around as lots of local buses pass nearby. Modern comfortable decor and a great bathroom. Wifi access was free and fast. Breakfast is fantastic with good choice of pastries, cheeses and freshly squeezed juice. Highly recommended and can't wait to return to Bologna for another stay

We decided at fairly short notice to have a week in Bologna as a silver wedding treat. A lot of the hotels we looked at close to the centre were booked out. We like small family run places, so opted to try Mua, which was described as a B&B and were so glad we did. It is actually more like... More

Mua is a great alternative to the standard city hotel concept. Housed in an old palazzo in the city centre, it's interior is slick and modern and yet because of its layout and small number of rooms, gives u a feeling of being at home.
