When we first arrived at this hotel I have to admit to being a little disappointed as our room was quite small and dark and very unlike what we had seen online. However the friendliness of the staff and their willingness to try and help totally surpassed any initial reservations I had. They showed us another three rooms and weren't... More

We spent a few days in Bologna and decided to stay in this absolutely great hotel. What a good choice we made! We stayed in the junior suite and enjoyed all the luxeries of a huge room, inclusive a jet bath tub and a balcony. The staff is brilliant, do not hesitate to ask how to go to some places... More

We made a last minute reservation for a very cheap price, so we were not expecting such beautiful rooms. The hotel is close to the railway station and to the city centre. Breakfast is a plus. Definitely recommended.

It's perfect for your stay in Bologna; primary for its position, very close to the main railway station (Bologna Centrale). The staff its very kind and nice; every member of the staff puts you at your ease and the structure itself is very cosy and warming. Enjoy !

I travel the world, especially Italy, and spend 4 months of the year in Europe. This is my first time to Bologna, and the atmosphere, room, and especially the service, is fantastic! I would highly recommend this hotel to EVERYONE! Not far from train station and, again, the hospitality is amazing! Thank you for a great stay! Will return again!
