What a great location, right smack in the center of everything. It was the cleanest place we stayed in. They are so diligent about everything being immaculate. We had a gorgous view of the duomo from our room. Good breakfast included and nice touch that they have fresh fruit left out throughout the day. Highly recommend this hotel! Dont miss...

... and the best price. The rooms are very big, each with their own color scheme. Our room looked out onto tiled roofs and gardens--basically the quintessential Italian view. The bathrooms down the hall are nice and clean and one has a giant bathtub in it. Sure there were a few things broken (like one of the windows) and/or kind...

We stayed 3 nights at this family run B&B/pension in Bologna. It is centrally located only 5 minutes walk from Piazza Maggiore and the main street. If you are coming from the train station, the local bus drops you practically at the front door of the Hotel. Only 1 room has a private bathroom, the rest have shared bathrooms. This...

I don't see how this hotel only has one star, it should at least be a 3 star. It's extremely clean and in the center of Bologna. It's literally 2 minutes walk from Piazza Maggiore. The owners were so nice and we ended up talking for nearly 20 minutes. We had a double room with a private bathroom and we...

This was a one star hotel but I'd give it at last 4 like the other reviewer. The two women were very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable with a good view. We chose a smaller one at the back over a huge one at the front for the reason of being quieter. The bathrooms were great, but there...

We were looking for a hotel for one night only. We found this one, the price was the priority. We got a room for 4 people for 90 euro. The location is great, it's in the heart of a city. The hotel itself is at the 4th floor. The lady was very nice. After booking the hotel we had to...

Beautiful garden views from some rooms (on one side of the hallway) and 3 very clean shared bathrooms each with its own shower. The entire hotel was always clean as every morning and afternoon there was someone there cleaning - and I repeat the bathrooms were spotless. My double room had a sink and a TV in it, plus wonderful...

Brilliant location in the centre about 15-20 mins walk from the train station. Lisa the owner is charming and welcoming.

This is my 15th year coming to Bologna and the Panorama hotel .The first time I visited Panorama I was hooked, and never considered any alternative.
