Small but friendly older hotel
People that worked there were very nice and helpful. Room was very small and a bit dated. But clean and priced right. Good walking location to everything

Nice Hotel
Nice Hotel, wonderful staff. Our room air did work on a very hot night, so we could not sleep. Said it was just serviced, but did not cool room

Friendly hotel in good location
Great location. Just off via Indepenza about 15 minutes walk from the train station and 10 minutes from the main square. Friendly staff & quirky hotel. Small room but was good to have a kettle to make hot drinks. We found some lovely family run trattorias in the surrounding streets. Bologna is an amazing place & lots going on. If you want good value, you can't go wrong here. We didn't rate the breakfast & preferred to eat out anyway as there are so many choices.
