I dont think we would ever have found this hotel if the taxi driver hadn't taken us there. Located in a quiet street ten to fifteen minutes walk from town centre it is a quiet hotel in a quiet area. Our room was based about five houses further along the narrow road from the main building and was absolutely charming...

This bed and breakfast is absolutely charming in everyway! Just to get to the room was unique - up an elevated, up stairs, down stairs then into the room. The key was huge but you leave it at the desk when you come and go. Breakfast was in a quaint room and was very good. Everything was in walking distance....

Charming place to stay quite close to the centre of Bologna. very clean, pleasant staff,pretty (though small) outside area for sitting or reading, which is quite a find in the centre of a city. breakfast is adequate, the 24 hour bar however is really a ''chase down a member of staff to pour you a drink'' bar, which I gave...

I can only reinforce so many other reviews. This hotel is small and nice enought o be considered cute. It's secluded enough to need a good street map to find it. ten to fifteen minutes walk from the centre-but that's a walk through mediaeval streets passing ancient churches. There's a bus, anyway. Two reputable restaurants on the same tiny road...

This delightful hotel is well located in a quiet street close to the old city walls. Our bedroom was spacious and comfortable and well set out with a hairdryer, a mini-bar and proper wooden clothes hangers - a sign that the the owners have thought about the needs of their guests, rather than the fear of losing a few hangers....

Quietly placed on the southern edge of the city this small hotel is a good base from which to explore on foot. We had a superior room with a small covered balcony which even in November proved a pleasant spot to be with a glass of wine. Some lift noise in the morning and the cleaner's room is next door...

My wife and I recently enjoyed a very enjoyable stay at this gem of a hotel in Bologna. The rooms were perfect, as were the breakfasts through the leafy courtyard gardens. The staff must have been some of the friendliest and most helpful we've ever encountered anywhere. Their dining recommendations were perfect, as were their insights into Bologna and her...

Delightful romantic rooms, close to everything, great breakfast with nothing in a packet and GORGEOUS staff, front desk and breakfast room too. Reasonable price for luxury which is what we strive for these days !! Keep more in your pocket for the great local wines and stay here. Bicycles available in the warmer months to putter about the city center...

My husband and I loved this hotel! Once you are in the hotel, you can imagine yourself in the countryside due to the wandering walkways, beautiful gardens, and quiet even though you are only a 5 or 10 minute walk from the central piazza. It can be difficult to find if you skip the taxi and take a city bus...

Once again a Trip Advisor recommended hotel comes through in a pinch. I made the reservation five days before arrival after researching Bologna on TA; the price and location could not be beat. Finding this hotel without a GPS could be complicated but it is right on the edge of the city center and ZTL. Upon arrival the staff did...
