Recent guest reviews

Enjoyed a very pleasant week at Hotel Touring. The receptionists were very helpful and service-minded. The breakfast buffet was ample and the facilities were kept spotless. Can warmly recommend this hotel.

It's on the other side of Bologna from the train station, a short cab ride, but worth it in terms of location and a quiet oasis. 5 minute walk from everything yet peaceful, with an amazing roof top view of the city and hills.

From the moment you walk in and are greeted warmly this hotel is a little gem, our regular room was not available so they upgraded us into there Tokyo room. They háve different cities and themes for fun. The room is comfortable the bedding warm and cozy and the bathroom nice. It's a 10 minute walk to old town center so away from all the crowds and noisy center. We loved Bologna and this is a nice place to stay for a couple days.

Tucked away on a quiet side street in the heart of the historical center of Bologna just steps from the most elegant piazzas in the city you will discover Hotel Touring. The welcoming and efficient staff ensure that your stay at this small, family owned hotel will be near to perfect. The rooms are comfortable and tastefully appointed. The hotel offers sumptuous breakfasts featuring world famous locally sourced products. Be sure to enjoy an end of day aperitivo on the roof top terrazzo. The views of the city are lovely.

We found a very cozy place and welcoming staff in Hotel Touring, during our visit to our daughter who is studying abroad at Bologna University. Comfortable bedroom, good shower, good AC(which is not really common in Italy) made us very happy with our choice. And nice breakfast as well. Several good restaurants at walking distance.

Bologna seems to be on the travel list of many in autumn and so many City Hotels were bookede. We were lucky to gert the last available room ,it was a Golden Room ; for a very reasonable Price. Upon Arrival we were already treated like royalty and that continued throughout our stay. My wife had her birthday and was greeted in the morning with a B´day cake with a candle. So many small Details were looked at and made our 4 nights stay a very positive experience. The terrace overlooking Bologna is a real treat and the " Golden Rooms " have balcony ( good for smokers ) also with a view. Whenever we decide to revisit Bologna we will try to get a room in the Touring hotel

We had the chance to stay at this cute little holel in Bologna for 1 night on our way to Florence. It's a very cute little family run hotel and the front desk/service was wonderful. The check in/out was seamless and they called a taxi for us to take us to the train station. The hotel is tucked away on a quiet street, but it's within walking distance to the "action". The room (which I had upgraded upon booking) was compact but had everything we needed. Our room had a terrace which was so beautiful at night (we were able to sit out and enjoy some wine). Everything was clean and cozy. We had a wonderful stay- will definitely recommend.

What we liked : - staff was really nice all along - the location is really good to visit Bologna and quieter than in the medieval center - the room was comfortable - we had a room with a balcony - the special rate we had for the week end made it a good ratio price/quality What could be improved : - the breakfast was very standard, lots of industrial food and beverages. We expect much better as every B&B nowadays offers great quality breakfast with good quality ingredients. I do not understand why some hotels do not see this. Also the food was not always replenished. - the pillows were a little hard for me - the cleaning lady entered the room without waiting for our answer

Very helpful staff and a decent location for walking into the centre of Bologna. The hotel was very accommodating for our group of school students (the first time they’d taken a school group) and catered for our requirements. Breakfasts were excellent and the roof terrace has excellent views of the city. Rooms are quite varying in style and feel but all are comfortable. Thank you very much Hotel Touring for hosting us, you were brilliant!

I would definitely recommend Hotel Touring. Well located, friendly and attractive hotel with all the amenities. The staff were wonderful and very accommodating. Do NOT miss their breakfast (unbelievable) and the rooftop bar!
