4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location only 100 yards at most from maggiore sq, Smart trendy rooms with excellent bathrooms. The hotel functions well with good staff and communal area. It is a small boutique hotel so no pool and large breakfast but the food was v good. Would stay here again without hesitation.

One of the many hotels I have tried in downtown Bologna, this one looks from the outside like a nice cliché of a small Italian town. My single room was not extremely comfortable (the bed was sided against the wall, much less comfort) The service was OK, and the location is just great.

Stayed here for 3 nights and it is just lovely. Very clean and beautiful hotel. Wonderful breakfast buffet and even caught a mid afternoon snacks. The staff is very accommodating and very friendly. Nice size room and a great size bathroom with a wonderful shower. Close to most major attractions in bologna. Definitely recommend staying at Hotel Novecento while in Bologna!

Had a couple of days in Bologna last weekend and could not have had a better choice than this hotel. Ideal location, just a short walk from all attractions and some super restaurants. The whole hotel was spotlessly clean, our room was small but made good use of space available with a super bathroom with efficient shower. All just right. Very good choices on the buffet breakfast table plus bacon and scrambled egg if you wished. The highlight of the hotel though was Giovanni Lucca who seemed to be on duty at the front desk throughout out stay! I have never come across such a helpful and friendly concierge in any hotel that I've stayed in. He is such a credit to the company. Thank you so much Giovanni for your patience, recommendations and assistance. You really made our weekend.

The Art Hotel Novecento has a great location, just a few minutes walk from the Piazza Maggiore at the medieval heart of Bologna. Parking is limited throughout the centre but there is a private garage (at an extra fee) next door. Shops, restaurants, museums etc are all within walking distance from the hotel (a flat pair of shoes for exploring is a must). There is an amazing choice of restaurants nearby. Check-in was efficient. We were upgraded to one of the Presidential suites – the Palazzo, on the second floor of a building across the road. It was quiet, very comfortable and spacious and we loved it. The staff spoke English and were extremely obliging. The man on Reception was very helpful in retrieving our car from the garage for an early start to the airport on what turned out to be a festival day, when everything opened later than usual. Continental breakfast was included. There was a wide choice of cereals, fruit, yogurts, cheese, cold meats, breads, cakes and very tasty coffee. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this hotel.

Hotel is nice , breakfast superb and staff friendly and helpful. BUT we has room 101 with lovely terrace but sitting outside was spoilt every night by loud noise from local teenagers shouting and screaming. No effort from staff to stop it . Very annoying . Spoilt our whole experience

Room was smallish but very clean, with a lovely view over the square. Bathroom was a good size, again impeccably clean with a good powerful shower. Comfy bed, very little noise even though it was a Saturday night. Good buffet breakfast. And the staff were all very helpful and friendly.

We booked here for a long weekend, and stayed 3 nights. The staff could not have been more helpful and charming. Our room overlooked the square, while small, and bed was very hard, clean and air con brilliant. Definitely in the heart of the city as everywhere easy to walk too. We will stay again for sure. Breakfast is a must as sets you up for the day!

We visited Bologna for three days and from the moment we arrived, the reception staff (and other members of staff) were welcoming and helpful with information - better than the tourist office. The standard rooms are not large but modern and perfectly adequate, clean and with plenty of complimentary shower gels etc in the bathroom. The breakfast, which was included in the price, was delicious and seemed to cater for all tastes and needs. The hotel is in a very good location and very near the Piazza Maggiore, museums, galleries, shops. Take a good pair of walking shoes. As our flight home was in the evening, the hotel were happy to store our cases for the day. Would definitely recommend the hotel.

Very nice quite and centrally located. I have been here for just one night and found myself very ok, the front desk staff is very efficient and the breakfast was very good. The location is central and in the evening you can reach the center with a few steps.
