The room was very comfortable and the location was superb. The views from the tower room are incredible. The coffee (available at any time) was really good too. This was a perfect place to stay in Bologna.

Just wanted to clarify this as I really enjoyed my stay at Casa Isolani (B&B apartment) which are kind of like serviced apartments but offering (a basic) breakfast. Rooms are fantastic, clean and unique in a fantastic old building, comfy bed etc and the location...More
