A little gem tucked into a quiet side street in the heart of old town Bologna. As charming as the town itself, this family run hotel offers a taste of Bologna you will not find in the soulless chains typical for business travel. My room was comfy with everything I needed, included a marble bathroom, juliet balcony and decorative painted...

The hotel is just several blocks away from the Piazza Maggorie, and other great sight seeing places in Bologna. It was comfortable, well kept, and the staff was pleasant, and knew us by the end of our 4 night stay. The roof top terrace has amazing views, and we had fantastic time drinking wine and eating lunch there. (We brought...

We read about Hotel Touring's great view of the city from the rooftop terrace, and it was even better than we imagined! The bartender made a perfect negroni, and gave us a small tray of delicious treats. Fantastic! Highly recommended!

Hotel was amazing and clean! We were in Room 100, a very large room with a queen size bed and a twin. Large bathroom with towel drying racks that helped dry some of our hand washed clothes and windows that opened. Staff was always helpful and pleasant. I had heard that breakfast in Italy was pastries and croissants. This breakfast...

First impression was not very favourable - we arrived quite late and entered the dark lobby. The 3 or 4 men sitting there stopped talking and just stared at us. Quite intimidating. The receptionist, on the other hand, was warm and friendly, as were all of the staff we subsequently met. We had a room on the 3rd floor with...

An excellent choice in downtown Bologna, unless you have a car. Their website reads "garage", but it is nothing more than 3 places in a small parking 400 meters away. Very annoying because you have to park in front of the hotel (restricted area), ask for a special key and go to park. When leaving in the morning, first you...

This hotel was full of really friendly and helpful staff who couldn't do enough for us. The room was a good size (we booked a Gold room) with an awesome balcony etc. The roof terrace was beautiful and would have been brilliant in the summer - in fact, you probably don't need a balcony if that is open! The breakfast...
