The warm welcome at Reception ushered in caring and efficient service, all staff were very helpful. Central location amazingly quiet and very convenient. Excellent range of choices at breakfast. Old fashioned feel of hotel is in harmony with elegance and stylishness of Bologna. Plenty of storage space in bedroom, although would have liked more floor space in bedroom.

Everything about this hotel is great! Clean, nice rooms, great staff. The typical Italian breakfast may not please everyone but come on, you are in Italy. Only minor detail: the walls are not thick, so bring earplugs if you wake up easily at night.

This hotel is in a great location with everything in walking distance. The room was quite spacious with a little seated area opposite the sofa bed. Housekeeping were wonderful and very helpful.

The staff at this wonderful hotel always went out of their way to make our stay as pleasent as possible. Our room was spotless and had every amenity one could expect. In addition, the hotel is just steps from the old city center which made our tour of the city even more convenient.

We stayed at the Hotel Commercianti for our wedding anniversary in August and booked a large suite. The hotel doesn't have a kitchen!

Very old, historic charm--beauty, really. Room overlooking the cathedral and location right next to old square, right near the Quadrilatero. Quiet, efficient service. Breakfast is included and was one of the best spreads we found in Europe. Great updated large bathroom. The bed may have been the most comfortable we found in a month-long trip. Can't recommend this place more... More
