nice location, big rooms, nice rooftop terrace
a bit old interior
ONLY POSITIVE ASPECT WAS THE LOCATION, VERY CLOSE TO THE TOWERS
- OUR DOOR WAS COMPLETELY OPEN AFTER WE DID OUR CHECK-IN WHEN WE LATER CAME BACK TO THE ROOM - BED AND MATTRESS WERE HORRIBLE, LEANING TOWARDS ONE SIDE
At first glance the Hotel San Donato looks pretty plain, but once you pull in you realise that it is a beautifully renovated property with good sized rooms which are clean, having comfortable beds, small but clean bathrooms, a beautiful walled garden to relax in after a days traveling and very good breakfast menu, the food is prepared by the managers wife making breakfast a high lite of the day. An added bonus at the Hotel San Donato is the Restaurant located next door we had dinner there and loved it all meals were prepared with fresh ingredients to a very high standard. My wife and high highly recommend a stay at the Hotel San Donato.
we received a renovated room which was very comfortable and nicely decorated!
-shower leaked into the bathroom - our friend got a single room which was not renovated: he complained that it was not very comfortable staying in this room, and that the shower was very old
4 beds in the room Nice breakfast and cocktail hour Convenient location Friendly staff
Room was very ordinary No Wi-Fi in the bedroom - we had to go into the common areas
View of twin towers, easy access to great food, the staff
Friendly staff, superb location - walk everywhere, great value for the location.
Bar is not very nice and quite expensive - however they terrace is awesome! Drinks are pricey...
Front desk staff, breakfast staff, cleaners, all did a excellent job.
The bed was hard, and wobbled and slid on the tiled floor. The pillows were uncomfortably hard. Had 2 sleepless nights as a result. Wifi is annoying to use, times out after 15 minutes so you have to sign in again, which is a slow process. Wifi reception in my room was inconsistent.
Very good localisation. Good breakfast. Terrase on the roof with a fantastic view on this beautiful city Bolonia. Very friendly and helpful hotel equipe (staff), also thanks of them I will remember my first Italy tourist stay as extraordinary and unforgottable holidays
Friendlyness of staff was excellent. Overall extremely helpful and polite. Breakfast buffet very good. Location was perfect for centre of old town. Excellent roof terace with good views.
Noise of other guests coming and going from their rooms in the middle of the night. Specific issue with guests next to my room having an argument at 3AM and waking me. (Not hotel problem but rooms not well enough sound proofed)
The room was very basic and balcony door was broken and felt insecure over night.
helpfulness of staff
The view from the terrace is worth every penny. Good rich breakfast, options for vegans also. Very good location in the centre of Bologna.
All was good
Staff very helpful, breakfast terrace outstanding view
Small room but with a good terrace
Friendly staff who patiently listened to my bad Italian, very clean, great breakfast and bar and conveniently located.
Great location. Excellent breakfast.
A seat on the terrace of the room would have been great! WiFi difficult to connect to and not very fast: this was surprising as it has been excellent at other places I have stayed at in Italy which were much cheaper!
City centre location, breakfast on the balcony, good parking
Impossible to find (even with sat nav!), rooms a bit dated, en suite small.
Everything, this was our 2nd visit and we will return.
Location of this hotel was fantastic. Really great breakfast and very helpful staff.
Friendly staff. Close to of the sights inlcuding Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. Great breakfast! Thanks everyone!
at the beginning i was given a smoking room, but on request they changed it with no problem, the room was big enough, clean and quiet the position is central, 20 min walking to the railway station
The staff- friendly and efficient
Access to local sights and it had a very good bar man and breakfast. The desk lady is very patient and the assistant mgr found our car which we had abandoned in frustration.
This hotel is impossible to find and just when you think you are clear of it you are lost again. the GPS does not work in the narrow streets and you cannot read street names if they exist and when it is raining.
