        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Excellent staff. Good breakfastbuffet.

          Noisy interior of hotel. Other guests movements in the corridors and on the stairs is easily heard in the rooms.

        • Single
          9.6

          The hotel has great locations, just off a main road and within walking distance to the train/bus stations, all major sites, shopping and restaurants. The hotel staff was very helpful, rooms are keps very clean and the bufet breakfeast was beautifully presented and had excellent selection of food.

        • Older travelers
          4.6

          Doesn't look at all like the pictures on the internet. Bed was hard as a rock, shower so small that I had to open the doors to bend over and shave my legs. Steps everywhere, including one small step that many triped down right out to the street! Very noisy location.

        • Group of friends
          5.8

          the public areas were very stylish and breakfast was nice

          My bedroom design was terrible with very bad lighting - very depressing room.

        • Single
          6.6

          The signle room up to 6 qm, to be honest I have never experienced such small room. Additionally, very dark one !!!!

        • Single
          8.2

          Welcoming, friendly and very helpful staff; comfortable and quiet room; stylish but unintrusive ambience. A very enjoyable and restful time.

          The breakfast buffet was very good but at Euro 15 too expensive ...

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The Hotel was modern, compact and in an ideal location for tourists. The staff at the reception desk were very helpful.

          Breakfast should be provided in a hotel such as this for the price paid. Also clear instruction should be provided on how to operate the air-conditioning system in the bedrooms. Our Italian maid did not do so and we were there during a heatwave!

        • Single
          10.0

          It was a very good option. I am 100% satisfied with that.

        • Couple
          9.2

          The staff were very friendly and helpful. We brought our dog with us, and they gave us a room with a little garden area. Location was excellent, easy walking distance to all the main sights. The room was very clean, which is ultimately the most important thing to me.

          It was somewhat difficult to drive to, we wound up just parking and walking. The breakfast was overpriced - better value to grab a brioche and capuccino around the corner.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          We really liked the welcome from the hotel manager and the friendly helpful staff. The hotel was easy to find and we could walk everywhere without the need for a cab or bus. The room was modern, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent with a wide fresh selection of fruit, cakes, pastries, etc. and good coffee. We would definitely stay there again.

        • Single
          5.8

          Centrally located in the old town of Bologna which is convenient and accessible for travellers. The staff speak Englsh and are helpful. Within walking distance of the train station and historic parts of the old city.

          A little hard to find for a first time visitor, but within walking distance of the traiin station and the historic part of the old city. Be sure to have a map with you to find the hotel. Via D'Orso is a little side lane not a street. Watch the signs on the sides of buildings!

        • Couple
          10.0

          Central location is brilliant but its tucked away off main street - so it feels like a little haven of quiet.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The welcome on arrival was professional and friendly. The price was excellent for such a central location. Free use of computer and printer is a bonus. Excellent shower.

          Some noise internally when patrons were leaving early morning.

        • Family with children
          8.2

          The location was perfect, you can reach anywhere you want in a very short time. Literally next to the shops. It was very clean and modern. Nice breakfast.

          While in shower, the water cut off one time when the other room flushed their toilet. And some noise into the bathroom and bedroom from the cafes nearby.
