"Fantastic"
We arrived tired and jet lagged form the west coast of North America. Baggage lost but the staff made us at home, even calling at all hours for our beloved things. They too celebrated when our bags arrived. Great place fantastic food and service!

"Perfect for exploring Old Bologna."
Staying at the Al Cappelo Rosso gives you a he'd start on the tourist trail as you are less than 3 minutes walk from the main square (Piazza de Maggiore). It is a very comfortable hotel with attentive and helpful staff. It was recommended by an Italian friend an I would definitely stay there again. we were upgraded to a superior room which was very nice, but the superior rooms do not have the funky themes that the other rooms do, so if that is why you are staying there - forgo the upgrade.

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

"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.

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.

"31st Anniversary Trip"
we spent 4 days at the Cappello and it was a good base for all of the sites and the railway station, which we also used to visit other cities such as Florence and Parma. It was an ideal location as it was just a short walk from the Piazza Maggiore but not noisy. The restaurant for breakfast was cosy, clean and the food plentiful. We also ate at the restaurant one evening and found the food to be good quality Italian fare.

Excellent stay at the hotel Al Capello Rosso. I did not have the chance to test the breakfast as our plane was too early but the hotel have a coffee machine you can have a quick coffee before leaving. They advised us an excellent restaurant in Bologna which was such the best value for money. I would love to come back. Thank you.

"5 DAYS IN BOLOGNA"
Spent a lovely 5 days at Al Cappello Rosso. We booked a 1 bed apartment to have a bit more freedom than just a hotel room in the apartments next door to but owned by the hotel. Got to the hotel mid morning just expecting to drop our bags and explore but to our surprise the apartment was ready for us so we could check straight in which was great. Large living room with kitchenette and dining table led to a good size bedroom with bathroom off. All in lovely condition. The hotel is situated right in the middle of the city so all the restaurants, bars are on the door step. Spent a night in the hotel restaurant and the food and wine were amazing. Well worth stopping in. Also there is a great pizzeria on the same street where you can sit outside. Tried the train to Florence which was easy and quick (only 35min), with the hustle and bustle it was good to get out of Florence in the evening and back to the slower pace of Bologna. The open air cinema set up for July and August gave us Ingrid Bergman in Gaslight (1945) late into the evening under the stars. Could not ask for more All in all a great place, we hope to be back

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.
