    Superb

    It is very central (20 steps onto the Piazza Maggiore) so excellent for al nightlife, restaurants, shopping etc. The hotel is a little, teensy weensy old-fashioned, but he room was extremely comfortable, excellent double glazing (important as we looked onto the square) a well stocked minibar, very reasonably priced, a free bottle of wine and chocolates. Breakfast was plentiful with cooked options and an extremely extensive buffet.

    The receptionist could not have been less interested in us when we arrived. Admittedly it was later on in the afternoon and she may have been a bit fed up, but really! Next morning no better. A shame she was so grumpy. All the other staff were very pleasant and helpful. However, this would not put us off going back. Next time I would be looking forward to whether she could keep up the grumpiness, perhaps treat making her smile a bit of a challenge!

    Fabulous

    Centrality - extremely good concierge desk - the breakfast room was charming - the buffet was varied and much more than adequate.

    The hot water system likely needs re-installing.

    Convenient location. The cozy and comfortable rooms, a spacious bathroom. Wonderful breakfast with a view of the historic city. Wi-fi worked well in the room)) in the store we bought a bottle of good wine and like to try it in the room. The staff brought a corkscrew and glasses in the room for this. Friendly attitude of the staff will not leave you indifferent, every evening we returned to the room as his home. Thanks for the warm remembering of Bologna.

    Very good

    We liked to stay in the very heart of Bologna - there are few hotels where you can have this feeling - laying in bed and seeing the most beautiful townscape

    The breakfast - not such one in a town "detto la grassa"! Bad coffee, juices from the package - just the tipe of continetal breakfast where one thinks : no! I better go to the next bar.

    Fabulous

    The location was perfect for us... walking distance to all of the major sights and manageable walking distance from the Central Train Station.

    Quite a bit of dust in the room which was a problem because I am allergic to dust.

    Great value for money, (deluxe). Two steps from main square. Staff were helpful, dinner recommendations/reservations and helping in crisis travel bookings etc.

    Exceptional

    The character of the hotel and the location just off the main square, both rooms could be from a film "Room with a View". The bathrooms had been up-dated very well since my last visit.The public rooms are comfortable and Italianate. Breakfasts are good. Wifi was available. I had made the booking and had the paperwork.Our flight was delayed 5 hours by the general strike in Italy, but the hotel did not give my brother and his wife (touring Europe from Oz) any grief when they checked in ahead of us. Staff are courteous and helpful, but never intrusive. Sensible check-out time. This Hotel impresses me every time I stay there. The reasons for staying there below, I could say "all of these" applies.
