Nice clean and quiet, despite being in the center of town. Front desk is super helpful, and speaks several languages.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, super staff!"
There are many wonderful things about this hotel. The staff are excellent - friendly, pleasant and ready to help. They made check-in very fast and overall were very nice. The room is also very good: the bathroom was upgraded, beds were comfortable (I had a "double" made of two singles combined which worked out fine) and the mini-bar refrigerator was […] a pleasant surprise since it's not common in many places I've stayed in Europe. The location of the hotel, on the edge of Piazza Maggiore, is also a good benefit, but might have a slight drawback to business travelers. The only "issue" was the noise in the street. The hotel across the street (which is really an Italian alley) has a garage there, so there is car noise if your room faces the street. At night there are many people who just linger outside, talking loudly. Also, there is a lot of delivery traffic and students in the street until late at night, especially on weekends (it is a University city, after all). Now, if you're going for vacation and don't mind a late night (you might even be out enjoying the fun!) it's ok. But since this is a "classic" Italian hotel with single-pane windows, business travelers might want to ask for a room with a different view, or choose somewhere further from the center just a little bit. It was the only drawback, but for some, it may not matter. Overall, it was a great stay and a solid hotel for the price range - especially in comparison to the other choices in the area.

"a wonderful find, determined to return"
sadly only had two nights here. fantastic location for exploring the centre of Bologna. Welcoming staff, quiet efficiency, feeling of individuality rather than an anonymous chain. Excellent food too. at good prices!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a pleasant hotel with friendly staff in an excellent location just minutes from the main square and all tourist highlights. It is somewhat expensive for the facilities offered.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"short stay in Bologna"

"Lovely quirky hotel"
Friendly staff, comfortable room, nice breakfast, chocolate left on the bed on return to the room in the evening, lovely toiletries, slippers and gown provided. Very enjoyable stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A very comfortable and centrally located hotel. The hotel staff were very helpful and responsive. We travelled with our 1 year old son, and the hotel staff made sure that we were comfortable during our stay. Well done Al Cappello Rosso!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Lovely central hotel in Bologna"
The hotel is a short taxi ride from the airport. My friend and I arrived separately and were welcomed by the staff on reception. The bedroom was well-appointed and individual (music theme). The en-suite was quite spacious. We had dinner in the hotel on the first evening only but were not too impressed so ate out the rest of the time. There are plenty […] of restaurants nearby. The breakfasts were very good and the staff attentive. We liked the location of the hotel as we could walk everywhere. The train station is only about 20 minutes' walk away and there are regular trains to interesting towns like Ravenna. Lots to see in Bologna, including museums in the university, churches, gardens. It was a bit hot to walk to San Luca but we hope to do that next time. We will definitely return to this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect base to explore Bologna"
We only stayed here for two nights during a brief trip to Bologna, but this is a great hotel. The rooms all have a different theme and we had one based on the composer John Cage, it was unusual, but great! Really friendly staff at check-in and check-out, a pretty decent breakfast (more savoury options would have been nice though) and the room was spotlessly […] clean. The hotel is ideally positioned for exploring Bologna - just a two minute walk and you're in the main square, although it is down a quiet road, so not a noisy position.

Excellent hotel & location with friendly staff. Short walk to all Bologna's attractions of which there are many hidden behind the doorways of the portico's. They even loaned us a brolly as it was raining heavily on our arrival but the sun soon reappeared and Bologna came alive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Lovely hotel in a superb location"
Everything about this hotel is very good, from the polite and efficient staff to the amazing regional food served in the lovely restaurant. Staff were very attentive, responding to requests immediately and were very helpful when we needed information. It was lovely to come home after a day's sightseeing to a such a comfortable room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Old hotel in need of an update"
We booked this hotel after reading positive reviews online. As soon as we arrived the problems started to occur. The hotel is run down and in need of attention. It is in a good location in the heart of Bologna but that is where the positives end. We originally booked the apartment room. We were shocked when the staff led us in to a nearby building not […] even attached to the hotel. The room was old and unkept. The bathroom was very out of date and dirty, the soap old, the aircon barely working and overall not up to a 4 star hotel standard. There was also almost no natural light in room. After complaining to the staff that this was not as advertised they did change us to a hotel room. This was better however still not up to a 4 star hotel standard. I would not reccomend this hotel.

"Faultless hotel - amazing staff"
This was by far one of the best hotel experiences we have had - we were upgraded to the Music themed room which was amazing!! The staff however, are the ones that made this experience truely unforgettable, especially Elena. Not only did they speak excellent English but they went out of their way, every day, to help us get the most out of our holiday, […] from restaurant recommendations, to printing travel guides of towns we were visiting. This is one of the only places we would go back to time and time again. Faultless!! Thank you!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"3 night hotel stay"
Overall experience is of very good staff in all parts of hotel. Food and staff in the restaurant is great both for breakfast and evenings. Room we had was in need of updating for a 4star hotel not that good. it let the hard working staff down But overall a very nice stay would stay there again, location could not have been betterGenuine Expedia guest review
"Reasonable value boutique hotel in the centre"
It was adequately comfortable and in a really pretty part of town - well located.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location doesn't get better than this...."
The hotel is in a great location right near the central piazza. The staff are friendly and helpful. There's also a car-park nearby where you can park overnight with a municipal pass. A great breakfast is provided in the attached Osteria.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"In the heart of Bologna"
The apartments belonging the hotel are the perfect base to explore this beautiful city. Quite why you would want to cook when you are surrounded by fantastic restaurants I'm not sure but you have a well equipped kitchen if that is your choice! The hotel has its own cafe/restaurant which serves great coffee and delicious food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"5 day stay, very good"
Stones throw from Piazza Maggiore. And a 25 minute walk to the soccer stadium. I found the staff very accomodating and I the room which was an apartment very well maintained. Will all the great fresh produce available near by we used the kitchenette to cook. The hotel also has an Osteria for breakfasts which is dollar wise one of the better eateries […] in town. Would be definitely stay there again Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Perfect location, friendly staff, good restaurant."
We used one of the apartments adjacent to the main hotel, so our experience was slightly different from most guests, but we did have a very good meal at the hotel restaurant (my one quibble would be that a written menu would be helpful, even if it was hand-written each evening, rather than have the staff recite it at your table.). All the staff we dealt […] with were friendly and helpful, and seemed to be the same in dealing with all guests. Our apartment was spacious, spotlessly clean (the housekeeping staff did a very good job each day) and very quiet, which was exactly what we wanted. In addition, location of the hotel could not be better. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Bologna, with its miles of Porticoed streets, medieval architecture, palazzi, musei and chiesi, together with shops, bars and dearth of tourists, offers a perfectly authentic Italian city experience. A leisurely break in a beautiful city oozing charm and sophistication in abundance.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great central hotel"

"Lovely Hotel 2 minutes from the main square"
We stayed in one of the apartments they have in the block next to the hotel. They were well appointed and the room service was excellent. The hotel staff were friendly and always willing to make recommendations and the restaurants they sent us to were always a good choice...... We will go back there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best in Bologna"
I love this hotel. It's my third time in Bologna and this one is hands-down the best I've been at.

"One of the best !!"
This hotel is without doubt one of the best that I have ever stayed in. My wife and I were upgraded on arrival on Sunday 16th which was a pleasant surprise. The room was spacious and clean with many little extras. The staff at the front desk were very friendly. I only wish that we had stayed longer. If you want a great hotel experience in the middle […] of central Bologna then I warmly recommend this delightful hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Full of character and a joy to visit"
Al Cappello Rosso must be among the most unique hotels in Bologna with a number of super-stylish themed rooms that make staying in the hotel a real occasion. My fiancee and I stayed in room 202 – the shock in pink room – and absolutely loved the little touches that made it so much fun. In addition, the staff at the hotel could not have been more helpful […] or friendly, while the hotel's location so close to the Piazza Maggiore was perfect (the restaurants nearby are also great - visit Divinis around the corner for an amazing choice of wine or La Mela for inexpensive but wonderful pasta and pizza). I would not hesitate in recommending the hotel to anyone visiting Bologna and I certainly intend to stay there again myself. Next time I'm hoping for the room themed on John Cage!

Bologna is an interesting town, very good for a short break. Good restaurants, and shopsGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is ideal if you are visiting Bologna for a weekend/short break. The location is great for sightseeing, dining and the odd bit of shopping. The service was good and the staff very helpful. The rooms were small but nothing unusual for a city hotel. Only downside is the lack of a bar. That said, it didn't matter to us as we stayed at the restaurant […] or nearby bar for a drink after dinner. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A weekend in foodie heaven!"
We stayed here for 3 nights for a friend's birthday. The hotel is in an excellent position just behind the Piazza Maggiore and close to all the shops, restaurants and other attractions. Our room (308) wasn't big but was very comfortable with a good shower. Our friends were in one of the hotel apartments. I wouldn't recommend this as it was quite a mission […] to get into the apartment which was part of a shopping complex. They needed about 3 different keys to get in and the locks were very tricky. They had more room, including a kitchen and lounge, but didn't really need it for a few nights stay. We enjoyed exploring all the shops and old buildings but beware ALL the museums are closed on Mondays. The walk up to San Luca church is long and steep but worth the effort for the views over Bologna. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
