Recent guest reviews

Stayed in Apt annex 4. Flawless. We came to Bologna from top hotels in Brussels, Paris, Milan and this was our favorite.

My husband and I booked a trip to see our son who was studying abroad in bologna. Our flight in the US was cancelled d/t weather. We were rebooked to a later flight that was also cancelled. We were then rebooked the following day but mechanical issues delayed that flight so we would miss our overseas connecting flight. Now 48 hours delayed wrecking our entire timeline, we cancelled our trip. We had 2 nights booked at this hotel, non refundable. Through no fault of ours, we contacted the hotel notifying them we were still in the US. They knew at least 24 hours before the stay we couldn't get to Italy! The hotel refused to refund us and delta airlines just says sorry. So now we are out 4 hotels, train tickets and museum tickets and NONE of this was of our choosing. I emailed the hotel and Orbitz contacted them too. I haven't gotten a response. Is this hotel so desperate for business??? I'd choose another hotel if I were you

Staying only two nights in Bologna during my recent trip to Italy, I wanted to be close to the historic center. This hotel turned out to be a great choice - a one minute walk to Piazza Maggiore but on a quiet side street very close to excellent shops and restaurants, with parking also nearby. Room was modern and comfortable, staff was very helpful and friendly.

Perfect location, steps from the Piazza Maggiore. Friendly and helpful staff. The first room we were assigned had a faulty AC, with a loud rasping noise, but they switched us to another room. When I called before our stay to ask if the airport bus stopped near the hotel, I was erroneously informed that the bus goes only to the train station. In fact, it does stop a three-minute walk from the hotel.
