The hotel is in the center of the city, close to a great choice of restaurants and shops. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast buffet was good. Claudio and his staff were extremely helpful and courteous.

The hotel is very well situated in the middle of the central area just by the corner of the main street Independenzia, making it perfect as location but avoiding the noise and the crowd of the street.
Almost everything you may need in Bologna is at a foot distance: Piaza Maggiore and all major touristic objectives, Central Railway Station, shopping, restaurants.
Although the hotel is not big, the rooms are quite generous and the whole place has been nicely designed as a boutique hotel.
There is a small elevator for two and the bath would have need some refit but everything was clean and in function.
Free Wifi in the room was a nice surprise as well as the possibility to print in the lobby our boarding pass.
Breakfast was very poor in assortment but fresh and good quality.
The staff - very helpful and polite, made our stay comfortable and relaxing.

This hotel is located very centrally. About a 5 minute walk from the central square and cathedral.
Don't worry about the weather either, as Bologna is full of porticos (covered walkways) so rain or shine it won't bother you.
The room I stayed in was small but clean. The furniture was a bit out dated, although the elevator was a bit slow (and small).
I didn't sit in the garden or eat breakfast due to the many eating options around.
The price is very reasonable considering the other hotels available (and it's central location).
Staff were friendly too.
