        Great location, not noisy given the central location. The room was comfortable and of a decent size. The staff at the front desk were very helpful. The hotel offers a free guided tour of the city (only Sat and Sun).

        No complaints about the hotel, only that the bath/shower was a bit tricky getting in/out of.

        We liked the friendly approach the reception staff had. We were stranded for an extra 2 days due to the volcanic ash closing Dublin Airport and the staff were very kind and helpful.

        the room was a bit small and hot.

        The hotel staff were very accommodating giving us excellent local advise, information and help. The breakfast is good. We learned of the included tour of Bologna (excellent guide) and used the hotel bikes for a ride to the local park to the SE and then up to the top of the hill south of this (bit of walking since no gears!) for lovely views over the city and further south to the Appenines. The bikes were in excellent condition.We were sorry that we hadn't realised that the attached restaurant does not open on Sundays and would have eaten there since it looked excellent. THe hotel couldn't be more perfectly positioned a stone's throw from the main square. The city is delightful. Do visit the amazing University obstetric museum!

        Ok, the room was slightly smaller than we would have preferred but this was a minor point and didn't detract at all from our stay.

        Location

        It was unpleasant surprise and disappointment - small room, old bathroom, poor internet connection (it was free, but we would prefer pay for good connection instead), poor breakfast. Never recommend to anyone.

        The air conditioning was excellent for summer in Italy. Huge bathroom with a large tub perfect for a soak after a hot day in the city. The staff suggested and made reservations at a fabulous restaurant to celebrate a birthday. City center 50 meters from the main plaza.
