Our hotel in Bologna!
We have stayed at the San Donato many times and it is our hotel in Bologna. The Staff is the primary reason we stay at the San Donato because over the past 12 years the quality of service has not changed— always Fantastic!

I visited Bologna for a conference and chose the hotel for its location. Hotel was as expected, staff friendly, the hotel's infrastructre worked, services on time. The real irritant was that when one books the hotel, it is not indicated that breakfast is not included.There is for instance no booking mechanism where one can book the breakfast in advance and that one knows how much it costs. This 'hiding' of extra costs is against EU tourism policy and regulations, as everything has to be transparant for the guests. Someone could sue the hotel over this! It was way too warm in the hotel, outside it was a mild 15 degrees, inside it was boiling, even when one turned down the thermostat to 18 degrees. This must be an Italian cultural difference! My trip type was: Conference, not business. Please refine your 'type of trip' becasue you are missing out on marketing opportunities.
