We moved to this hotel on the basis of a recommendation from the Tourist Info service after having spent a rather dreadful night in another accommodation in Bologna with no air con (in 40 degree heat in Bologna in August - no fun at all)!
At 60 euros a night including breakfast, it was good value for money. The hotel is clean and recently decorated and is modern, but in a way that reflects the Italian style (lots of marble, tiles and wood ceilings). Our room was lovely - suitably spacious, modern bathroom with a small balcony area and an additional set of french doors with a juliet balcony. Air con system was excellent - a delight to come back to at the end of each day. Modern lift is installed in the hotel.
The staff were very helpful, making recommendations about restaurants, places to see and helping with a postal issue we encountered. They went the extra mile.
Facilities in the room are a little limited (no fridge/minibar/kettle) but typical of this type of Italian hotel.They were very obliging, however, and provided me with a small jug of boiling water whenever I wanted to make tea (including at 11pm!).
We almost didn't book in here because after the TIC recommendation, we checked tripadvisor and saw the comments re breakfast. I'm astonished at them. The breakfast room is light and pleasant and provides:
Fresh coffees/cappuccino and tea - all made by the staff in front of you
fresh fruit (nectarines, peaches, apples, apricots, bananas on all 5 mornings we were there)
croissants and pastries
small packs of pate
yoghurts (at least 4 flavours)
preserves and nutella
Two types of juice (admittedly not freshly squeezed, but for 60 euros a night for 2 people..!)
We are discerning eaters and found it to be more than adequate.
The location is excellent. The hotel is 10 mins slowish walk from Piazza Maggiore and 10 mins slowish walk from the train station. It is in a quietish street just off the main drag and opposite a small convenience store (which we found useful for cold drinks and fruit) and an utterly sublime gelateria (Stefini's). There is a superb, reasonably priced restaurant within a few minutes (Trattoria dal Biassanot - try the Maccheroni with truffle - divine).
We couldn't have asked for anything more of this hote. We had room 123 and wouldn't hesitate to go back there.
