Location a breath away from stazione centrale and centrally located in the city. Elegant, friendly staff and spacious rooms. Even though I got a special price well below the usual price, I would say that value for money ratio is very good

Modernist, minimalist décor, but everything worked out fine for me. Centrally located, friendly staff, nice outdoor terrace with entrance to a public park. I got a rock bottom room rate, so it was a semi-posh stay at a Motel 6 price.

Hint: they tell you breakfast is 15 euros and when you look shocked the price suddenly drops to 10.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your kind words. Indeed, Palazzo Maccaferri's location, with the Montagnola Park at the back and the Pincio terrace on the side is exclusive to us and has no equal in Bologna.
As for the price of our Breakfast, it is justified by the fact that our jams, marmalades, muffins, croissants and cakes are all homemade daily, and the cheese and cold cuts are all typical DOP products.

Thank you again for your comment. We are looking forward to having you as our guest again in the future.

Best regards,

Nicola Berto

Rooms large with minimalist modern appointments. Bathrooms tight but nice!!
Air conditioning limited to summer so rooms poorly ventilated unless you open the windows.
On main street in Bologna which is very noisy even if windows closed so don't expect to sleep well with warm room and windows closed due to street noise.
Service average- they don't explain anything about room and breakfast was good but service not good to get coffee, clear plates, etc

Stayed: April 2012

Dear Guest,

I wish to thank you for leaving us your opinion. It appears as our services did not fully meet your expectations.

I wish to apologize for the trouble with the air conditioning. This spring has been very atypical for Bologna, with temperatures varying wildly from day to day. This made it hard for us to guarantee constant comfort in every room. We are carefully studying a new solution which we are confident will grant an adequate room temperature throughout the year.
Also under completion is a completely new insulation of Palazzo Macceferri's facade, which will stop most noise coming from Via Indipendenza.
On the other side, I am happy to note that you enjoyed the unique style of our Hotel, a skilful mixture of contemporary design and classical features. Should you wish to visit us again in the future, I will make sure that you try one of our rooms facing the Montagnola Park, a feature that few Hotels in Bologna can boast.

Allow me to thank you again for the time you took in leaving your opinion.

Best regards,

Nicola Berto

Simple elegance in appearance but from my experience a very well run hotel. The room was uncluttered, the bed very comfortable, the shower of good quality.
Staff, polite and friendly. Service prompt.
Breakfasts served in a beautiful room, food tasty and fresh. Good strong coffee.
Good position for exploring Bologna, and easy distance from Station.
Room had a balcony which made it even more special!
Independencia can be noisy, but that's not the hotels fault.
Hotel of character, highly recommended.

We stayed at this hotel over Easter weekend and found it to be the first of many fantastic surprises in Bologna. The hotel itself is beautiful in a oddly classic and modern way. Simple uncluttered rooms capped by the stunning ceiling murals left over from its previous life as a city palace. The only slight complaint would be the very tiny televisions mounted on the wall. We had a 15 foot wall with a 13inch tv mounted in the middle. After a few days we realised the location was perfect....a 10 minute walk to the main piazza and food markets- 10 minutes to the University district that is loaded with great restaurants- and a 5 min walk to the train station which made a day trips to Parma, Modena, and Florence so easy and enjoyable. Breakfast was fantastic, the bar was good with a perfect balcony facing the park, and staff were flawless. Highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: We stayed in 419 which was large and very nice....its just that it faces the street which can be a little loud at night with the window open.
