          Hotel has very good location and it is has clean rooms. Bathroom is small, but clean. If you have sweet tooth for breakfast you will enjoy it, for other it should feel more that you are Italy's food capital.

          Since parking is a problem in most older city centers, I don't know if this should be critic, but I would like that stuff would be more helpful with parking your car. They told us that you can park anywhere in blue zone and that we will discuss the voucher later, which we didn't.

          Clean, good breakfast, walking distance to major locations. Perfect staff..

          A little noisy...

        • Group of friends
          7.8

          The hotel is situated in an ideal location and is within easy walking distance to both the points of interest in Bologna and also the cheaper more lively university area. The room was comfortable and the bathroom spacious compared to other hotels! It was a little noisy in the early morning but, as the room was on the street side of the hotel, this was understandable. The breakfast buffet was good and the breakfast staff very friendly and cheerful.

          The reception staff could have been a little better informed about buses and things to see in Bologna and it would have been great if they had better maps as the one that they had was missing a lot of street names.

        • Family with children
          4.6

          We requested a non smoking room but were subjected to the stench of smoke from the next door room. The hotel is above a noisy bar expect your sleep to be interrupted until around 2 am.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          Excellent location, close to main attractions. The staff was welcoming and very friendly, comfortable bed and spacious room. The bathroom is long and narrow and the shower cubicle small but the shower jet very powerful. Excellent shower.

          Yes the reviews are correct when saying thta the rooms are noisy as the young crowd spills into the streets and you can hear them through the night. We only stayed one night and as it was cold we kept the windows closed, might be a bigger problem in the summer. Also, during breakfast most of the items finnished without being replaced, when asked if we could have some more bread rolls we were told they had finnished and there was still 45m to the end of breakfast.

          Well located, in the city centre. Room clean and friendly staff.

          The bathroom needed to be refurbished. It seems more a hostel than a 3 star hotel.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          Good location

          Decor of rooms in need of updating

        • Single
          7.8

          the staff were really helpful; i stupidly booked my room for only one night not two, and they were very lovely in making sure i wasn't on the streets for the second night! also really helpful when it came to suggesting places to see etc

          the bathroom was slightly strange though having said that, functioned well - the shower curtain/doors were made of a strange opaque corrugated plastic. the shower itself was fine once you allowed a little time after the initial flow of water (like a kitten dribbling).

        • Single
          8.4

          Good location, nice room, pleasant staff.

          Trattoria nexr door was a bit noisy at night.
