We stayed here for four nights last week. When looking for hotels online, I was conscious of the noise issues being reported by guests staying at hotels in the centre. This hotel managed to combine a very central location with quiet rooms. Our room was well furnished and had a balcony, which was great to sit out on, although sadly...

The place is central, which is great and was exactly what was promised. The decor is a bit ourt of date but you can live with that if the room is clean, which it was. Some points to note: 1. We brought our rental car there and parked in the little lot adjoining which cost about 30 Euro. In my...

I agree with all the positive points made by other Trip Advisor reviewers. We were lucky enough to stay in room 352 which was a peaceful corner room on the top (3rd) floor. We had a good sized balcony and of course panoramic views of almost half of Bologna including the 2 Towers. Make sure you read the hotel's information...

Best Western San Donato is located only a few minutes from the "torri degli asinelli". Rooms are good and very clean and staff is very helpful and friendly. If you don't bother furniture being quite old, this is a great value place to stay in the very center of Bologna.

A great balance of amenities, location and price. Free wifi, adequate size room and bathroom. The roof terrace is lovely. The parking is very convenient and well worth the price. The location is good and central to sites and varied restaurants. There was a refrigerator in the room. The only negative comments are about the sagging bed and breakfast was...

Typical Best Western standards: clean, adequate facilities. The best possible location, two minutes from the two towers. Very friendly staff, missed a little more soundproofing in rooms. Splendid views from the upper terrace (see picture). Prices vary wildly depending on events (I booked at 95 euros a double with breakfast that would go for 250 euros the following week).

Highly recommended hotel if you want to explore Bologna. It is centrally located yet quiet. Comfortable rooms and excellent staff. We could enjoy a great breakfast or pre-dinner cocktails on the balcony, with the wonderful vista of Bologna as background.

If you wish to stay in the center of Bologna, San Donato is the perfect hotel even it is a little bit difficult to reach by car. It is really nice to take a glass of wine or a beer on the roof terrace listening to all noise from the streets. During our visit we also had the possibility to...

Nice hotel situated in the town centre, can be a nightmare to find with a sat nav... Single rooms are really small but well equipped, staff are friendly and eager to help, free wifi, on site parking available albeit chargeable, would stay here again

This hotel is located close to the university area in Bologna. Many nice cafés, bars and ok restaurants at walking distance, but nothing upscale. My single room is small but tidy. Bathroom is fairly large, all considering. The room also has a fairly roomy balcony. Service is impersonal but efficient. Breakfast buffet is large and has something for every taste....
