"Could not be better"
This was the second time that we stayed in this hotel and I am happy with everything once again. The room was modern and comfortable, the location is perfect, the staff very helpful and the breakfast was lovely. Would - and may - stay here again.

"Good location at a good price."
Half the staff was friendly, the other half crabby. We spoke limited Italian, but in a hotel like this I expect respect even if I'm not perfect at their language.

4.0 / 5Excellent
Very well situated next to the main square. Convenient for the information centre, historic University, twin towers etc. A shortish taxi ride (metered taxis, no problem) from the rail station. Our room was a smallish twin, but recently decorated to a 'theme'. You may need to ring to specifically ask for one of these. The price for our third night was very high because, as we discovered, there was a trade fair that week. The lady receptionist was very helpful and trilingual. The others so-so. The breakfast choice was good for a small hotel, self service in the attached bistro. Friendly staff. Restaurant bookings arranged for Trattoria dal Biassanot (very good) and Ristorante al Pappagalo. We were very pleased to have stayed here.

"Perfect location in Bologna"
This hotel is located just off the Piazza Maggiore, and within comfortable walking distance of shopping, tours, and fantastic restaurants. Our stay was very comfortable. The hotel is clean, and modern, with helpful staff members. Our room was located on the second floor above the hotel entrance on the street side, so we did have some street noise, which turning on the room fan helped to eliminate. Overall, I highly recommend this hotel

The front desk help were very friendly and speak English. No problems with the room. Comfortable bed. The red painted room was odd. The bathrooms had everything you needed. Breakfast did not come with our package but we did eat there for breakfast. Again, great service and delicious food. Good location. Had a nice stay.

"Apartment no.4"
We stayed in apartment no.4 of the hotel which is in a building about 50m away from the hotel. Could not have asked for more. The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable with separate bedroom, loungeroom, kitchen and bathroom. Downstairs is a great cafe with delicious coffee and pastries for breakfast. The location is very central and perfect for our 3 night stay. Would stay again for sure! Staff were informative and told us to go to creameria for ice cream and it was THE BEST I have ever had. If you stay, enquire at the desk as to its location.

"Excelent family for 4 people family"
We had an apartment separate from the hotel in a building besides the main building. Perfectly located in the heart of the downtown. I asked the lady at the desk about some restaurant recommendations and she gave me 4 options all perfect. The $8.00 morning breakfast "Colazzione" was complete, good and excellent coffee. we paid about $270 per night with no complaints.

The hotel is perfectly set, very close to the centre but still quiet. The staff was friendly and sincere. Everything was clean and there was a feeling of luxury that was maybe a touch exaggerated (changing the sheets, towels and soap daily without an offer to reuse). I felt very comfortable there and would certainly return if and when I visit Bologna again.

"Great value in Bologna"
I liked the central location. The room was clean and well equipped, though it was laid out a little strangely. It had a small kitchen and nicely equpped bathroom. Free wifi in the room was hard to get going, but for most of the stay there was another network that we got good reception on. (Don't tell anyone.) The TV didn't work, but we didn't much care. A burned out lightbulb on the nightstand lamp was replaced immediately after I made the desk aware of it. We were there off season, and I thought this was a real value, a lot of hotel for the cost. Friendly, helpful staff.

"Happy Hotel in Bella Bologna"
This hotel is what all "4 Star" hotels in Italy should aspire to be! I had a lovely stay there and could not have been happier. I was only sorry that I had to leave! I would recommend it to anyone traveling to Bologna who looks forward to an adult and upscale stay. Upon arriving I was first offered a room on the first floor which I was aprehensive about because I am sensative to noise. I was quickly offered another room and it was perfect. During my stay, I left a credit card at a restaurant at dinner one night and the front desk staff went out of their way to call the restaurant and straighten this issue out. The entire staff was professional and friendly and recommeded wonderful restaurants. The location could not be better; right off The Piazza Maggiore and near all attractions and restaurants. And Bologna....what can I say? I have been all over Italy and really came to Bologna on a whim and discovered that it is one of the great cities and experiences of Italy! Do not miss it if you love Italy, as it is one of the historic and cultural centers of this incredible country and a beautiful city with lots to learn about and see. And the food...Mamma Mia. I hope to go again and be lucky enough to stay at Albergo al Cappello Rosso!

"Amazing stay!"
Had an amazing stay at this hotel. We were using our rewards nights so weren't sure what to expect. We were upgraded to a junior suite (large bedroom). The air con was excellent (and needed), the room was big, clean and well decorated with a "president" theme. The staff were welcoming and friendly, spoke English when needed (our italian is rusty!) and gave good advice. We didn't have breakfast as we wanted to be out and about but I'm sure it would have been excellent. Highly recommend.

Good little cafe downstairs for breakfast (the apartment is on the second floor but there is a good lift). Excellent location just off Piazza Maggiore.

"Quirky hotel in fantastic location"
Superbly placed hotel with fantastic restaurant attached to it (we had both breakfast- eat as much as you want buffet 10 Euros and an evening meal there- amazing food served by friendly attentive staff) Just 2 minutes casual stroll to Piazza Maggiore and the wealth of tourist attractions and restaurants in the old town.Not far to stagger home after a long day on your feet or a boozy dinner! Rooms although not big were more than adequate for a great nights rest. We stayed in room 202 Shocking Pink (each room is individual and named according to the theme of decoration!) which was at the front of the hotel. There was a little noise from passers by and a few vehicles but mostly it was quiet and our sleep was not disturbed. The room was very clean and bed very comfortable. Each night there is a turn down service which includes a good night chocolate and a bedside mat which says "good night"! The bathroom was excellent- clean and good size (although didn't dare venture on the scales provided as we had eaten so much!) The rooms have free tea and coffee- we had to ask for fresh milk at reception but this was not a problem. The foyer also has a coffee dispensing machine which served surprisingly good coffee! We would definitely stay here again- 4 star hotel with 4 star staff in a 4 star location!

Unusual character room in a comfortable hotel located in a convenient location in the old quarter. Although there were tourists it felt more like we were living alongside the Bolognese. The station is walking distance as are numerous cobbled streets that are a delight to wander (especially in the food market area). We would be more than happy to return.

"Amazing central location, GREAT Staff - V. Helpful"
Stayed for a long weekend prior to a Trade Fair. We had an apartment room which was located a couple of buildings away in the same street but in a very quiet and safe residential / commercial block. We could not have asked for more, the apartment had everything that we needed and if there was something that we did need the staff went out of their way to provide and gave the impression that nothing was too much to ask for. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from where it all happens within the historic old town and excellently located for bars, restaurants and of course the shopping. I would stay there again without a doubt.
