The hotel was very friendly, clean and in a great location. It's on a side street so quiet as well. We were only there one night and had to catch a plane early so can't comment on their breakfast. Would highly recommend.

The hotel is terrific. If we come back to bologna we would stay here again. It was very clean, the beds are soft unlike the rest of Italy! The room is spacious. The bathroom is nice and has a good heater in it. The staff are very friendly and made great restaurant recommendations for us.
