A hotel in the middle of Bologna with a rooftop terrace. We arrived with 21 people and motorbikes in front of the hotel. Extremely stylish atmosphere. Parking for motorbikes is in walking distance. We had Aperitivo in the rooftop bar. An unforgettable event with excellent service from the owner of the hotel. The rooms are air-conditioned and modern style. You can walk to any location in Bologna you’d like. The location is best in class. If you need any assistance ask Sara at the reception. She will provide anything you need.

Liked · Hotel location is perfect. It is on a side road on the main street of Bologna (Via Indipendenza) and 5 minutes walking from the main square. The check-in experience was very good, staff is nice and welcoming. The room (a Junior suite) was spacious and clean. The bed was really comfortable. The bathroom was great, clean, big with a wonderful shower. On the last floor there is an open bar, where you can have a drink looking at the roofs of Bologna, quite a nice way. A perfect way to relax in tranquility. Disliked · There are a few things that I didn't like of the room, but maybe it is more a personal taste. The door of the room has a big transparent glass, and there is only a curtain to cover the view from outside. (there are also external panels, but I didn't manage to lock them with the key). Nothing serious but I had a strange feeling when leaving the room you could see inside. When I entered in the room, there was a sofa/bed and an open closet. I found it strange that with all that space available I didn't have a sofa or a table where I could watch the TV or eat something (being in pandemic period during the evening I was taking food in my room and I had to eat it on the bed). In the bathroom there were no hooks to append your towels. Although the room was comfortable and clean I found it not very practical.

We booked this hotel pre-lockdown and had to fight every step of the way to try and get the dates changed. We had prepaid for the 2 apartments, and would have been visiting in September 2020....our flights were cancelled and due to the second lockdown we are unable to visit Bologna. The hotel have been extremely unhelpful in rebooking dates for us.

Dear Monika, we are quite surprised about your review, let me remind you the history of your NOT REFUNDABLE reservation: - 17th FEBRUARY 2020: RECEPTION OF YOUR FIRST BOOKING, CHECK-IN 9/09/20 AND CHECK-OUT 12/09/20 - NOT REFUNDABLE RESERVATION; - 14th JULY 2020: FIRST REQUEST OF DATE CHANGE IN 23-26 SEPTEMBER 2020, WE HAVE ACCEPTED IT, BUT YOU DIDN’T CONFIRMED - NOT REFUNDABLE RESERVATION; - 22nd AUGUST 2020: SECOND REQUEST OF DATE CHANGE IN 7-8 OCTOBER 2020, WE HAVE ACCEPTED IT, BIT YOU DIDN’T CONFIRMED - NOT REFUNDABLE RESERVATION; - 27th AUGUST 2020: THIRD REQUEST OF DATE CHANGE IN 26-29 NOVEMBER 2020, WE HAVE BOTH ACCEPTED IT AND MADE THE FINAL AMENDMENT THROUGH BOOKING.COM - NOT REFUNDABLE RESERVATION; - 8th NOVEMBER 2020: YOU ASKED FOR A FOURTH DATE CHANGE, AND WE COULD NOT ACCEPT IT. For three times we have accepted your date change, although it was a NOT REFUNDABLE reservation and we didn’t have to, since you booked a NOT REFUNDABLE RATE (it means that once you have booked, you cannot make any date change at all). But we understood the situation and wanted to give the best possible service. All your requests have been accepted by us the same day you sent the messages, so it is not true to state that “The hotel have been extremely unhelpful in rebooking dates for us” and “had to fight every step of the way to try and get the dates changed”, it seems to me that we have replied promptly and politely to all your requests. We think that we really did our best listening tou your requests and changing for three times the arrival date.

We have stayed here before and would definitely stay here again - you could not wish for a better city centre hotel. The location is fantastic, in the middle of everything but in a quiet walkway so peaceful too. We parked our car at the car park close by - 2 mins walk. The rooms are very comfortable, the roof bar is lovely, the whole hotel is very clean, and covid precautions are very good. The people here are really helpful and friendly. We left some electrical items in the room when we left and they posted them back to the UK - what fantastic service. When back in Bologna we would not stay anywhere else and will definitely be back soon.
