“Excellent service, beautiful grounds, tasteful rooms”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

Need I say more. I usually travel on the cheap, but I splurged with this hotel because of all the good reviews. And I'm glad I did. It was a very good decision. The staff were always there to help you with whatever you needed and they did so with a genuine smile. The breakfast room is set in the middle of a garden and the food choices were great, including bacon and eggs. They made fresh coffee, espresso, etc. for you on the spot. My room was very nicely decorated with antiques and my window had a gorgeous view of the garden and breakfast room. Location was good: Not smack dab in the center but a quite short and interesting walk from there. Bus connection to the train station is excellent. From the airport take the six euro Aerobus to the train station and then take the one-and-a-half euro #33 bus to the hotel.

We stayed in this lovely hotel for two nights.
The staff were all so friendly you could tell that they enjoyed their work.
The rooms were large and well laid out.
The breakfast had a really good choice of items.
I loved the fact that we had to walk into the courtyard to get anywhere.
A very central location.
I would stay here again if i came to Bologna.

This is a good value option with a nice breakfast terrace and helpful staff (especially with the street parking regulations). The rooms were of quite a high standard for the price although they need a bit of an update in my opinion. Location was pretty central.

We stayed in this lovely small hotel twice and would definitely come again. We love the location in a quiet corner of Bologna, our room was spacious and charming. What is really outstanding is the staff. Every person was very friendly and very helpful. We travel a lot and have never experienced such excellent service. Also we highly recommend the restaurant directly across the street "Le Mura".

Room Tip: floor 2 or above, not facing the street

We arrived at the hotel a little disorientated, deciding to walk from Stazione Centrale and finding that we were nowhere near the hotel, but from Piazza Del Nuttuno the hotel is only a couple of minutes walk. Our room wasn't ready for us when we arrived but the staff were immediately helpful, offering to look after our bags whilst we went and explored the surrounding area. They were exceptionally knowledgeable and gave us a multitude of suggestions for things to do.
When we returned to the hotel we were wonderfully surprised at how beautifully kept the room was and were delighted at the very personal greeting letter waiting for us, alongside a complimentary bottle of wine. It really was very thoughtful.
The breakfast service was basic but again just what was needed before a day of exploring the gorgeous historic district, and conveniently all included in the very reasonable price.
All in all we were not disappointed by anything during our stay and cannot recommend this place enough. It was a pleasure to stay and next time we go to Bologna we know exactly where we will be staying!!

Room Tip: We stayed at the back of the hotel, overlooking the courtyard. Perfectly peaceful. Would also recomm...
