Score from 599 reviews Excellent
The location was perfect, the staff were very friendly and rooms were clean.
The car park was small, but undergoing some work so spaces were limited. Getting to the hotel with the one way streets was a test as Google Maps hasn't as reliable as I'd hoped! (but this had nothing to do with the hotel)
Location and value for money. We always use the San Donato when visiting Bologna.
Wifi was not available for the duration of stay. Very very inconvenient.
Room and bathroom 's size; not so comfortable
Small room, no clean bath, room - no 4 stars, but max. pension standard
Very central location and a very comfortable hotel. All staff I spoke to were really first class friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated two minutes walk from the two towers with an amazing array of medieval buildings just behind.
great location, amazing views from the upstairs terrace, large rooms, helpful staff, good breakfast
it's a Best Western, so the rooms and hallways have less character than other prettier Bologna hotels
The location is perfect..just a minute from the very centre. The staff is very good too.
This is an old hotel ready for major upgrade. It is far from 4 star. Wifi login is weird as each time you close your computer you have to log in again with a complicated password and user name.
emplacement and charming old hotel
Breakfast was superb - meats, cheeses, cereals, fruits, cakes and sweets, yoghurt. Location couldn't be more central just by the two towers. Hotel in pedestrian area so no traffic noise. Wi-fi in room was good. When a lamp went off, it was fixed promptly.
Bread toaster in breakfast room too slow for number of patrons.
A really nice Hotel, well located and very good value for money
Limited channels on TV and there was nothing in English
The hotel is located in the historic center of Bologna near the University. The location is perfect as you can reach all areas of the city within walking distance. The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and helpful which made our holiday even better. The room had all amenities that you needed and comfortable with a lovely view of the two towers. Would definitely stay here again.
The Staff the Location and the Comfort is excellent
Location, staff (friendly, helpful, polite), breakfast (variety, quality)
Tails on the floor, no bath robes or slippers, heating system (especially in the bathroom)
Very centrally located and best location for all sights and deceptively quiet. Excellent.
Nothing. It was perfect for us.
The location is great just in the center of the old city of bologna
The room was small and coosy. Not even close to picture pulishedin the internet The price of the parking is too high
great views; great location; nice staff; moderate prices for Bologna.
bed was near door.
Beautiful old building, nice room, pleasant bar during the evening, and excellent breakfast.
The safe in the room didn't work and although we reported this to reception we didn't get any feedback, and it didn't seem to get fixed. Also, tea and coffee facilities in the room have to be specifically requested, and we only realised this was possible at the end of our stay.
Central location Competent and friendly staff. Clean and confortable room. Ideal to visit Bologna.
We stayed a few times in Best Western hotels in different countries and always enjoyed our stay. And this hotel was no exception. Good location, clean and spacious rooms with balcony, friendly, helpful English speaking staff and nice breakfast. Everything you would expect from a good hotel.
Excellent location Good breakfast
Some reception personnel not friendly
I stayed 1 night in Bologna and I enjoyed the hotel location combined with value for money. Small room & breakfast but a very reasonable price. What I enjoyed most was that even I paid a very economic price, the staff treatment was as in 5 stars hotels. The woman at the reception helped me to find a shop for toys and later recommended to me an excellent restaurant nearby. Without her help I should haven’t enjoy Bologna as I did. Thanks madam!
Excellent friendly staff- lovely terrace for breakfasts. Noisy but unavoidable in that location.
The central location is excellent for visiting Bologna's sights but this is a quiet hotel.
The hotel has a lot of potential, receptionist recommend a very good resturant.
Not even a team of Navy seals would find this hotel, no one in the city speaks enough English so prepare yourself for a frustrating time finding the hotel. Eventually after 3 hours I parked at the train station and caught a taxi to the hotel. Rooms and bathrooms are very tired looking, my shower was non existent. For some reason the staff started vacuuming outsite my room at 8 in the evening.
Nice rooftops view from the terrace on the 3rd floor. Great staff very friendly ;-)
A bit pricey.
