Great location
I was traveling solo and here over Christmas and the reception staff was so helpful in letting me know what would be open and things to do on Christmas. Breakfast was also very nice and great service as well. Great location just literally a couple minutes walking from the main Piazza and many shops and restaurants.

Everything...and then some!
We stayed in one of their apartments. It was a one bedroom with a full size bath, kitchenette, etc. The property has been updated nicely with A/C, plenty of outlets, a little Nespresso machine, microwave, dishwasher, etc. This would be a great option for any long term business travelers that want to be able to cook their own food or for families traveling together. They also have a two bedroom apartment my colleague stayed in that I might book if I ever return with my wife and children. In addition to the facilities the staff was incredibly helpful in calling taxis, giving us food recommendations (Da Cesari just around the corner is amazing for lunch or dinner) and so on. The attached restaurant is also a good option for breakfast at 12 euros for an all you can eat buffet. Best of all, this is all just a 1-2 minute walk from Piazza Maggiore, the main town square. Highly recommend this place!!!

This hotel was just plain awesome. From the friendly lady at check-in to the buffet breakfast service was clearly their goal. The coffee machine and snacks were a nice plus! Room was clean and the bed comfortable. Most importantly it was quiet. Although centrally located to Bologna’s old city, the hotel is on a side street which kept things quiet and quaint. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We stayed in one of the hotel apartments, which are down the street from the main hotel. They’re well-equipped, quiet, and pleasant. Our main contact with the hotel was with reception and they were great.

Very Good 8.0
Spacious Apartment and Great Location
The second leg of our trip landed us in Bologna. Check in time is at 3 PM. We arrived at 9 AM and we had to wait till 2 PM to get our room. However, they were very nice and held our bags for us while we went and explored the city. When we arrived the lead us to our apartment, which are situated in a different building than the hotel rooms, and they gave my newly wed wife flowers with a nice note. The apartments use a large skeleton key for access which we thought was pretty cool. The apartments are very large, compared to other European hotel rooms. It included a kitchen; equipped with a stove, refrigerator, and a microwave, a living room, a large bedroom, and a large bathroom. The rooms were very clean and are situated only a short walk from the main piazza. We would definitely stay here again!
