Perfect location
Location was really good. Close to city centre and university district where you can find all the bars and stuff

A basic hotel. Staff and location very good, but rooms dated and beds not great but price was very cheap

Nice folks, very aged and grim room.
The staff were very nice and professional and their check-in time is conveniently early. The condition of the hotel is quite dated and dingy. The room was acceptable (we're not that picky), but it was not nice at all and the carpets seemed very old and dirty. The room had no windows except a skylight and was quite small. The location of the hotel is great, but there are many others nearby that are nicer. We've stayed in Bologna many times and will again, but we will choose any of the other hotels we've used in the past.

Good location
Well positioned hotel with easy walking distance to Centro Storico and Railway Station. Very convenient 24hr reception. WiFi worked with no problems. I did not eat the breakfast as I had alternate arrangements. Only issue I had was despite requesting a double bed I got two singles joined together which I didn’t find a comfortable alternative. This would possibly put me off staying here again but mightn’t be a problem for a lot of people.

Comfortable and excellent location
A small, comfortable and clean hotel in a very convenient location. Amenities as expected for a three-star hotel. Lovely staff and decent breakfasts. Really, the only negative is that the prices here, and in all hotels in Bologna for that matter, skyrocket to ridiculously high levels during the annual Cersaie trade fair (September), and we need to be there for that so we are captive to them. Having to pay $400 per night for a room in hotel of this level, as we did, is outrageous.
