4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The best thing about this hotel is its location, you can’t get much more central than this, and yet it is on a quiet side street and very quiet. The rooms are quite small but beds are super comfortable and with touches of luxury. Many good restaurants in the surrounding streets.

Smack in the middle of old town Bologna makes this hotel very attractive. Add to that spacious, charming bedrooms, spaciously equipped for your needs. We actually had a two-storey room with two separate bath- and cloakrooms.

This is a quirky boutique hotel in a great location on the corner of piazza maggoire. clean modern friendly and helpful staff Excellent breakfast and we ate in the restaurant one evening which was very good and reasonably priced frequented by locals - always a good sign!

I have used this hotel before and it just gets better and better. There were 3 couples who went to Bologna this year for a New Years eve short break. As usual, the service was excellent, the rooms are individual and somewhat quirky but that is part of the charm. The location is brilliant and we would not stay anywhere else if we could help it in Bologna........ But DON'T TELL EVERYONE about it!!

This is a good little boutique hotel situated a stones throw from Piazza Maggoire and many, many restaurants & cafes. It is a bit of a challenge if you are coming by car but they do have a parking garage very close by. The staff are very friendly and helpful. My room was quite a good size with a very comfortable bed.

This hotel is clean and modern with a quirky feel due to its themed rooms. Service was good and friendly helpful staff. Location is close to piazza and is walk to restaurants and shops.Would recommend staying here if visiting Bologna.

Perfectly located nice little hotel in beautiful Bologna. Clean rooms, very friendly staff. Hotel located next to Piazza Maggiore. Communication before arrival worked perfectly and we booked transfer from the airport to the hotel to arrive in style 😊. Could stay there again.

Location: The hotel is centrally located, 2 blocks from the main square (Piazza Maggiore). There are plenty of shops and restaurants all around. Paid parking (9 euro a day) is in the Piazza Roosevelt nearby. It took us an average of 10 minutes to find a spot since it is quite busy and not a lot of parking spots. Rooms: We stayed in one of their apartments which is in another building 25 meters away. There is a quite popular cafe next to the entrance which serves delicious pastries and desserts. The apartment we stayed in was on the second floor. To get there, there is the world's slowest lift (50 seconds to get to two floors). It has a full kitchen and dining area, a lovely bedroom with bath and a loft bedroom with bath in the attic. The beds and pillows were excellent. The sheets and towels were of fine quality. The only thing lacking was a meeting space where we can sit and gather and relax. May I suggest getting rid of the hall table and placing a 2-seater sofa instead. Service: All requests were fulfilled, all questions were answered. Breakfast was good (10 euro extra) although a little variety on the hot foods would be a great improvement. There is a computer and printer in the main hotel lobby so we were able to print our boarding passes. Housekeeping was consistent and thorough. I would highly recommend this hotel. The apartments are great for families.

This hotel is right off the Piazza, with good restaurants very near by. My room was quiet even though above the street. It is a one way street with minimal night traffic. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Nice bathroom. The furnishings were quite modern - clear plastic chairs, Ikea-like cabinets, but that was fine with me. Staff were so helpful to me - even walking me to the corner to point out a vegetarian restaurant near by. I would definitely stay there again.

Me and my wife stayed for 3 nights in AL Capello Rosso. It was a very pleasant experience. First of all the hotel is located at a prime location, the entrance to the Piazza Maggiore, center of Bologna. The place is lively all the time. Breakfast is normal, rooms are clean and comfortable. There is free WI-FI.
