The Art Hotel Commercianti is a perfect boutique hotel, centrally located, carefully styled, comfortably furnished, with attentive and kind staff. My only complaint was the music in the elevator, and I'm sure if I had told the concierge, she would have changed it. The breakfast was magnificent. The lobby, although small, was welcoming and interestingly decorated. I would happily stay there again.

Room Tip: Single rooms can be very small. I shared a double room with a friend, and it had a fabulous balcony facing a cathedral.

A great hotel, very centrally located down a quiet side street just off Piazza Maggiore, you don't need a car you can walk everywhere of interest in central Bologna. It is called an "Art Hotel" because it features an art exhibition of selected artists in its public spaces. I can't fault this hotel, the staff are very friendly and helpful, the breakfast is excellent, the rooms very comfortable. I would recommend a room with an outside terrace, the view is unusual being located across a narrow street from the Basilica of San Petronio, but it is great to sit outside enjoying an aperitif before going out in search of your evening's restaurant.

Room Tip: I would recommend a room with a terrace.

This hotel, located just off the Piazza Maggiore and next to San Petronio, is a great place to stay and a great piece of Bologna's history as well (the building's structure dates back to the Middle Ages). The rooms are comfortable and the air conditioning works well (important in the heat of summer). It is also close to several great restaurants, gelato shops, and high-end stores (local and international). The included breakfast is substantial and always well stocked; definitely try their "ACE" juice (carrot, orange, and citron). The staff is also incredibly friendly and helpful with all things about Bologna.

This is a small, beautiful hotel ideal for couples that is just off the main piazza and virtually within sight of the cathedral. Tasteful furnishings and careful detail are matched with comfort bordering on luxury but without the flash. Everywhere is the evidence of craftsmanship -- the sort of arresting beauty in small things not seen in contemporary hotels. In other words, traditional Italian style. Breakfasts here are especially good and the staff has helpful suggestions for dinning out in kitchens for which Bologna is justifiably famous, e.g. the trattoria Cesarine. This is the experience most of us come to Italy for and find only rarely elsewhere.

we stayed here for 6 nights. Clean rooms, nicely appointed. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was very good with lots of fresh fruits, breads, meats and pastries. The espresso and cappucino was very good. I would definitely go back here again. Also centrally located in Bologna.
