    This hotel is honest and honorable. I had an issue, perhaps a simple misunderstanding and management went above and beyond to satisfy the situation. Besides this, breakfast is good, location great next to the train station. Makes it a great base for day trips outside Bologna.

    The service and staff at this hotel were Excellent. The front desk staff was especially helpful. The hotel was old and the room needed updating (no USB ports for example) but it was clean and sufficient.

    Staff was very helpful, breakfast was substantial and very good with both traditional Italian and European offerings,room was spacious and bed comfy. Would recommend that hotel includes bathrobes and an iron in the room for the price point. Those were the only things we found lacking that we looked for during our stay.
