    This little hotel is situated in the heart of Bologna's historic center. The rooms are spacious, tidy and complete. The staff is very friendly. Breakfast is simple and plenty of places for breakfast, lunch and dinner can be found in the streets and squares nearby.

    Even if the hotel is very well located (near to the city centre, central station...), the owners were not really nice when we arrived we didn't feel like we were welcome... Rooms are not soundproof, you'll hear people talking (even if this is not loud)...More
