Hotel position and car parking. Wonderful staff. Public balcony and roof terrace views. Walk out of front door and you are in 'prime pitch ', reccomended .
Nothing - the drive to the hotel needs care , phone and they will guide you in
Location and staff.
Superb location Wonderful rooftop views of old city Extremely helpful and friendly staff Right in the midst of hustle and bustle of University life that makes Bologna quite special.
Difficult access with car, but that is to be expected in a City built before the car age.
wonderful terrace with magnificent view of the city center, ideal for breakfast and aperitives... comfortable room for a family of 4.
around the hotel there is a lot of night life, since it is sorrounded by bars and restaurants for young people. Our room had windows on the internal court, so it was a very minor problem for us.
Breakfast, terrace, service, location.
Price for parking. Fluctuation in pricing is pretty large.
Everything was excellent except we purchased based on advertised air conditioning. The staff claimed the government forced them to turn off the AC. However, in our three weeks of travel staying in seven different facilities only two made this claim. . Very uncomfortable.
Location and extremely friendly staff and breakfast was great! Evening aperitifs were a nice touch!
You get free WiFi. But it is very troublesome to use. Every time you open you have to register!
The location is great, not very loud though it's a busy student hangout place at nights. Breakfast was good, and especially having it on that wonderful terrace with such lovely views. The staff was also great
A bit old fashioned maybe, but that didn't bother me.
All the balconies communicate so if the lock at the balcony door is broken (my case) or you forget to lock it, you may be in for a big and undesirable surprise. Also, Internet is really bad!
Excellent location in centre of town(200 meters form the Two Towers). Very nice breakfast buffet with possibility to eat outside at terrace. Roof terrace with nice views of town. Comfortable rooms.
Rooms at the front side can be noisy with noise from cafe in the square. Airco did not work properly so we needed to sleep with window open which increased noise.
Location was terrific and the upper patio was beautiful for breakfast and later in the day for drinks. Elevators were very roomy also. It was nice to be staying in an Area pedonale it made for enjoyable walks on the weekend
Couldn't get air conditioning to work. Room was hot
position excellent, especially for the opera house, 2 Towers and Santo Stefano - everywhere really. The staff were all extremely professional and friendly. Breakfast good too.
The rooms and ensuite -beds were extremely uncomfortable, the air con didn't work, nor did the shower room fan and the shower was tiny and barely warm, shower head totally fixed and very close to the wall! Very dated. Had booked Best Western as cheap option but hoped for standard facilities. Will think again!
Rooftop terrasse Small room, but nice balcony with a view
Free, fully functional wi-fi for all your devices.
Location and friendly personal
Very old hotel, hard to find if u with car, u will hear how u neighbour use his phone at least 2 star
- Friendly and helpful front desk staff - Great location - very short walk to historic area - Easy parking dedicated to hotel - Outdoor terrace breakfast area delightful
- navigating the narrow, one-way streets to find it!
Box room; uncomfortable bed; small shower cubicle; dribble shower; horrid decor; bored reception staff.
Location is excellent. Good modern Hotel.
Our room was new, big two bedrooms, could have been really great, but the noise from the garden restaurants down the street was just toooooo much and almost for the whole night. Would not return just for this reason.
can get very noisy during the week end as its in the centre of the town
Location and breakfast.
Noisy neighbours but not hotel's fault.
I had a cup of tea in my room on the first night, it was still there when I left on the third day !!!!
We had a very enjoyable stay at hotel San Donato, all the staff were great right from check in till we checked out, nothing seem to be any problem, and very helpfull and friendly. Good location for sight seeing and getting around would use them again if returning to Bolonga
they have the kindest staff that I have ever meet in Italy
The location could not be better and the staff could not be more warm and helpful. However, the hotel seems to have aged and in my view is less than 4-star. The shower was of an old style and it was not working properly but it was fixed the next day. The room was rather small and the TV rather old. The breakfast was excellent. I would recommend this hotel due to its excellent location.
