"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.

"EXCELLENT IN EVERY WAY"
We had an absolutely perfect experience here from check in to check out. This is a beautiful hotel in a great location in the center of the city with helpful staff and a great breakfast. Couldn't recommend it more!Genuine Expedia guest review
"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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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 Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet and Comfortable 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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was very nice and clean but small which is expected. The bathroom was a good size. The front desk was very nice and helpful. It's in a great location. I would definitely recommend!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved that it was just around the corner from the main plaza with cathedral and fountain and near to great shopping and restaurant street.Genuine Expedia guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, but a bit pricey"
The Al Cappello Rosso was fine. Clean and modern looking, and the A/C worked well. But for the few frills I thought it pricey.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Location was good, service was good, breakfast was great, room was decorated in a fun way! Great experience!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Small room, but chic"
Wonderfully located hotel, just off main square. Bedroom small but very comfortable. Deep red walls, black contemporary furniture and a huge mirror above the bed gave a feeling of space.Breakfast was delicious, served in a very cleverly designed room. Extremely helpful staff. Yummy candies in lobby! Bathrooms well appointed-robes, etc.Really a very […] nice experience.Bologna a delightful city to explore-all in walking distance Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Excellent hotel in great location"
Excellent hotel in great location with friendly staff. All around fine experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice hotel ... staff are friendly and courteous. The room was a bit warm, and the air conditioniing could not be turned on due to local ordinances. Other than that, I have no complaints. Will use them again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location, very nice. no water pressure in shower. Wi fi did not work. Commented to front desk a few times and they acted like I didn't know what I was talking about. Spoke with other guests and they had the same problem. Would stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great center city location"
Excellent hotel staff. Very helpful to point out on map nice restaurants and sites close to the hotel. Breakfast was good each morning and restaurant was very good...opens at 8:00 PM at night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location - beware if you have a car"
Front desk assistance was excellent. If driving, a very difficult hotel to find (in the city center). Recommend contacting the hotel to reserve a parking spot at the time of reserving a hotel room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic Boutique Hotel"
The service was excellent. We could not have been more please. The Hotel is convenient to the main Plazza and many Historical sites as well as fine Restaurants and Shopping. The Staff were very professional, efficient and very helpful. Our room was small but very comfortable and immaculate. I would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here […] again.

"great hotel for business or vacation"
A well maintained, stylish and centrally located property with all expected amenities.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Attention to Detail"
This is a first class European hotel in every way, except the price. The staff was attentive to our every need and very friendly and courteous at all times. Bologna was extremely hot and our room was a welcome cool and calm oasis after a very full day of walking in the hot sun. The 15 minute covered walk to the train station was a bonus! I would stay […] there again and recommend it to anyone visiting Bologna without a car. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel, but"
some the staff would keep me from coming back. This person had an attitude with each and every one of us at separate times. There were 5 of us there for a photography outing. Staff can make or break a hotel. Even though the rooms were nice (small, but typical for European standards) the thing that we keep on talking about is the mean attitude. On the […] plus side, the location can't be beat. right in the center of town. You can walk to everything, the staff does give good recommendations for food. Read moreGenuine 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.

"The Hotel Allbergo Al Cappello Rosso -"
The location is great and the Hotel is very good and the Staff is very friendly. I really recommend this Hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful location and superb service"
This little hotel is right in the middle of the best part of Bologna for visitors. You can walk to everything historical and also participate in local things that make you feel right at home. The bowl of apples and the espresso machine in the lobby are nice amenities and the Farina restaurant is very good for a glass of wine or a dish cooked in the […] "slow food" style. Lovely shops and very good value in Bologna compared to the pricing in Rome. Wish we had books more than two nights on our way to Venice!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was incredibly small..... distance between the bed and dresser/desk was about 12 inches....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We tried two rooms. The first had an a/c unit that blew directly into our faces and could not be controlled (by direction or temp). The staff moved us and that a/c failed all together. The staff offered us no solutions. Overall, I could never recommend this hotel to anyone. I have written directly to the managing company and can only hope they have […] an answer. PS The hotel is currently under renovation. Why not tell us that before letting us book? Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location, Great Staff"
You will need a GPS to find the hotel if you are driving into Bologna. This is a really nice hotel, very clean and comfortable rooms and the staff is friendly and helpful. Location is about as good as it get. Breakfast was fantastic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pricey, but right in the middle of town. An easy walk to all attractions and shopping.Genuine Expedia guest review
I spent 2 nights at the hotel recently and would give it an overall "excellent" rating. From my email communications with the hotel in advance, to the taxi they hired to pick me up at the airport, to the incredibly helpful and friendly staff, to the size of the room and bathroom and the quality of the furnishings, to the daily breakfast included in […] the rate, to the central location within 100 yards of the main square, I would rate this hotel excellent and would definitely stay here again.

Great hotel with excellent wifi and in a fantastic location in the historic centre of Bologna - Off street parking worked fine (if a little expensive) but a great place to stay for business or pleasure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Al Cappello Rosso is a gem in the heart of the historic area of Bologna. Rooms are well sized, clean and comfortable with sparkling bathrooms. There is even a pillow menu!

"Very convenient near centre,quiet, well managed"
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
