Nice hotel with an old world, luxurious feel to it
Nice hotel with an old world, luxurious feel to it, within walking distance of the train station and the main square downtown. Several small restaurants within walking distance. Did not use the fitness room or spa so cannot comment on it. Spotty wi-fi. However, nice rooms that were very clean and comfortable. Great breakfast buffet, and nice lobby area. Small restaurant on site and nice bar area. Was there for a meeting which had more attendees than expected so it was very overcrowded in that regard, but they provided nice food at breaks, if you could get to it. Reasonably priced; would stay there again.

Perfect location!
Perfect location. Short walk to Central Train Station and 7 min walk to the heart of Bologna. It was nice to be close to the sights but away from the crowds. The hotel was beautifully maintained. Food was excellent and staff was super friendly and helpful. We will absolutely be back!!
