Hotel staff were very attentive and polite. Immaculately clean room. Excellent breakfast. Well placed for station and shopping.
Having to leave
Great hotel with very friendly and helpful staff, location second to none- one way train station in less than 5 minutes and only 10 mid walk through the shops to the centre
On my first night,I had a problem with noise surrounding my room. The next morning, staff very courteously and efficiently arranged for me to move to a much quieter place. This quality of service marks out a special hotel from the merely average.
Reception staff didn't seem to have great knowledge of Bologna or didn't take the time to share all e.g. Gave us only one option for transport to a tourist site when we later found through tourism office that there were other choices available.
Clean, comfortable rooms with plenty of plug points for travellers who need to charge up phones, cameras, ipads etc. Breakfast was not included but was worth it for €12pp as the service was prompt and buffet menu had good variety. Short walk from Bologna Central station and a pleasant 10-15 min stroll down the road to the centre of town.
Fabulous night. Great facilities, really comfy room, nice touch having it turned down for the night. Lovely, friendly staff, who also offered us a free glass of wine. The hotel is in a great location. Would definitely stay there again in a superior room.
Very touristic hotel, they try to sell you everything. Even in the rooms you feel like you are in a shop!!!
The hotel is modem with a friendly and accommodating staff,
Ground floor room, right next to the reception so we were woken most nights by reception telephone and people moving about in reception area. Bed made a horrible creaking sound with smallest of movement.
Nice hotel, well presented and in a great location. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Proximity to railroad station.
Breakfast was extra
Lobby, room, restaurant, staff
Would like breakfast to be included rather than on top.
We had a free upgrade to a room with a terrace. .....fabulous!
There was a function booked in the wine bar, which made it uncomfortable for me to spend any time in there. This was made worse, because they had given me a welcome voucher for a glass of wine on arrival
Great location to explore the city. Very polished and professional staff. Well designed rooms and fitted to a high standard
Very weak wifi signal in our room
Traffic noice from the street.
Location, style, staff, breakfast,bar.
It was really good location- 10 min walk to Piazza Magiore. The hotel was very clean and staff was very helpful- gave us really good recommendations for dinner. We even got upgraded for the night we stayed! Would love to stay there again!
The hotel was overbooked and my colleague had to be transferred to another hotel (of less price). The breakfast was very basic.
this is an old opera/theatre building refurbished to a very cute hotel.
No complaint at all
Location, decoration, historical building, ambiance, friendly and helpful staff, bar.

The bed, however, was a rock-hard orthopaedic mattress, and rather small for a double bed.
The location was excellent - close to both city centre and railway station. The staff were extremely polite and helpful and had a good grasp of the English language.
The second floor bar could do with more relaxing sofas and no TV.
The location was great for the station and walking into bologna.
poor noise control, cigarette smoke smell from air vents in room, they try to hide the smell with incense; all footsteps heard, all day and night. poor sleep, bad bed.
modern, high end hotel. "cool"
The decoration, staff, wverything
The hotel is quite good, the loby looks like a five star one. The staff are nice and professional. The location is good, near the train and bus station.
Beautifully restored building and an attentive staff far beyond "Italian normal" will be back
