Modest, modern hotel in a location & at a price that can't be beat. Friendly staff. Quiet. Clean. Bologna is a wonderful city & this is a great base to see the city. The hotel referred us to an excellent wine bar with wines from all over Italy - 2 mins away. Excellent restaurants round the corner.

We really enjoyed our three nights in this slightly quirky hotel. The bed was large and very comfortable and the staff were extremely helpful. Best of all, this hotel is perfectly located to explore one of the world's great walking-around cities. We will be pleased to go back there anytime.

Stayed here on a business trip combined with a bit of sightseeing. Beautifully presented breakfast with handmade Halloween cakes that the children in our party loved. Very helpful desk staff.

Nice hotel near Centro Historico and not too far from the train station. There is a bar on the side of the hotel so in the evenings and on weekends it can get rather noisy so just make sure your room doesn't face that side, if that bothers you.
