Perfect central location. The staff are professional, polite and friendly. The hotel has a lovely bar area. Rooms are very clean. Sheets are changed everyday.
Very good city hotel.Nice stuff. ne
Hard to find when arriving by car. Hotel only marked by a few flags.
Very beautiful connecting rooms were ready for our family without my request. The staff in the hotel restaurant. No explanation of the course meal. We ordered a child chair but they did not set up.
Service and standards at the hotel was excellent in all areas from recption to the restaurant.
room was wonderful - big and spacy. nice breakfast (unusual for Italy). very central location. helpful staff. if you are looking for the best hotel in Bologna and aren't limited with budget - this is the only choice.
Very good and central No
Large room and bathroom. High ceilings and wide corridors. Old world environment. Very friendly and efficient staff.
hotel staff no
Personnel very kind and helpful always striving to be accommodating. The breakfast room was very small on Monday and there were two small children who were noisy and disturbed the rest of the room.Hotel should have moved them to the adjoining room and closed the door.Or asked them to return to their room for breakfast.There was work being done on an adjoining property and they could be heard next door,these rooms should never haven been assigned.We were given an u
the staff were friendly the room was very shabby the bathroom was very old and disgusting for a four star hotel.
Clean hotel room. Close to the historical center, the railway station and the shops. Relatively small room. Expensive wireless internet access.
Friendly staff, complete breakfast, near to the city centre, close to aerobus stop, big rooms with king size bed TV without international channel, onyl on PPV
Excellent location to center piazza. Everything is in close walking distance to the hotel. The parking provided is underground very close to the hotel and is essential for convenience in the city. Staff was very helpful with all recommendations and directions. We requested a quite room because we had a very early departure. The room was very loud with street noise making it difficult to sleep.
location, cleanliness, staff very helpful breakfast was dissapointing
Close to resturants and central to the town centre.
Room was very quiet(in the back). King mattress superb and very good fresh breakfast. Shower was immense and room was spotless. Stayed for 6 nights. Easy access to train station and 10 minute walk the other way to historic center,university,and upscale shopping. Carpet was rather used -of two star quality. Front staff was the most unhospitable of all the hotels that we've ever stayed in the past 40 years.I couldn't believe they were in the hospitality business.
quality of the bed, good shower, good breakfast
in the middle of the centre and the film festival small elevators
location was great,near shopping, sight seeing and good restaurants, breakfast buffet was good and varied, room was clean and staff was always helpful. I would definitely recommend the Hotel and would go back. It was difficult to leave the windows open due to the high level of noise from the street.
Good location. Price to high during exhibition.
Nice, quiet room, well equipped for a three star hotel. Very helpful, friendly and efficient staff The labels to direct towards the rooms are a bit misleading
I found the staff very helpful and informative. The welcome pack included at check-in is a great idea, as was the small guide book we could purchase at the front desk - we had been unable to get a guide book before we left for Bologna. The proximity of the hotel to the centre was great & the bar/restaurant that has recently opened across the street was a fab addition.
The staff were wonderful, very helpful and happy to make recommendations. The hotel was clean, rooms were a decent size and quite modern and the location really couldn't be better. I have nothing negative to say about the hotel or my stay.
The location is excellent: two steps from Via Independenza and five minutes walking to Piazza Maggiore. The hotel is beautifully decorated and furnished. Very charming common areas and simple but lovely room. The small patio where you can have breakfast or a coffee latter in the day is especially agreeable. The staff is nice and very helpful: they even give useful suggestions of restaurants nearby. They let us check-in at around noon, when the official time 2 p.m. We just had to wait for 15 minutes for the room to be ready. The breakfast is very good, although the quantities are small. But as the hotel was empty that was not an issue: most of the days we had the beautiful breakfast room all to ourselves.
The staff was great and informative and very helpful
Location Room dark and small andpoor outlook
the public areas were very stylish and breakfast was nice My bedroom design was terrible with very bad lighting - very depressing room.
Doesn't look at all like the pictures on the internet. Bed was hard as a rock, shower so small that I had to open the doors to bend over and shave my legs. Steps everywhere, including one small step that many triped down right out to the street! Very noisy location.
the bed, the breakfast, the selection of tv channels, the understated hospitality of the staff
The signle room up to 6 qm, to be honest I have never experienced such small room. Additionally, very dark one !!!!
It was very easy to speak with the hotel staff. I was at one's ease.Breakfast was perfect! Nothing. Everything was great!
It was very quiet and close to the city center. The room was kind of small, but big enough for a weekend trip.
Location and lovely staff Strange towels and no shower gel (we had to ask for it as the cleaning lady kept forgeting about it)
Staff were most helpful and pleasant. Disabled room could not be faulted. Breakfast was superb value for money, full choice of breakfast foods on offer. For such a small sized hotel they have very high standards of hospitality and assistance especially for over 60's. The standard of cleaning was slightly disappointing. Dusty on top of the bed headboard and dressing table and television stand. Was there when we arrived in the room and still there after 5 days, but the bed and linen was spotless.
This is a very nice hotel, well decorated and also very comfortable. It is in an excellent location, on a quite street and very close to all the great sites. They have a wonderful breakfast and a compter in the lobby.
Friendly English speaking staff, clean, good shower, good selection of buffet breakfast. Location doesn't do hotel justice. Mini bar only had water.
Very profesional stuff. Comfort and clean room. Excellent location. Nor bad brakfast.
The staff was not clear about parking conditions therefore we had problems with it.
Clean, spacious room and good breakfast choices. The location was reasonably central, although it was down a slighly off-putting scruffy-looking road. No
very friendly, helpful staff. Rooms clean and comfortable, reasonable size. This is a reasonably priced hotel in an excellent central location.
Excellent location & very helpful staff. Noise from the street when in a front room. When mentioning this to the Reception staff they moved us to a superior, quieter room. Really good customer service - would return again because of such good service (thanks).
I would recomend the hotel because of its location and cosy rooms. The reseptionists provided very misleading information - one of the reseptionist told me that will cost me 25 euros from the hotel to the congress centre which actually cost only 9-10 euros, the other reseptionist told me that takes about 25 minutes from the hotel to Forly airport, and thanks to the taxi driver who drove as fast as was allowed and tooked me an hour and over 100 euros, because the airport is more than 90 km far away from Bologna and I just about managed to get the plain. Probably 25 is a sacred/holy nuber for the people at the reseption desk in this hotel. Be careful what do you ask them and double check their answers as their English is not quite good ot not quite clear and understandable.
Close to the Piazza Maggiore, friendly staff, a lovely room with a big bath tub and a very comfortable bed. After working in Lombardia for the two weeks previously, I enjoyed my night in Bologna at the hotel very much and was able to finally relax with ease here. It was just a shame I had such an early flight as I didn't want to leave.
Excellent location Very noisy and inefficient air conditioning. Room too small. No space for suitcases to be laid out.
room was quite good information on how to find the hotel was inacurate
The location is fantastic, steps from Piazza Maggiore yet on a quiet street away from the crowds. The hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful or pleasant. We would definitely recommend the hotel and plan to stay there again ourselves. The temperature in the room was a little difficult to regulate and the room was warmer than we liked for sleeping. But a minor problem.
The location was excellent and the room was clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were good once you got the hang of them. More coffee should be free flowing. Some staff appear perplexed by simple questions. Others are very helpful. Overall, they should all get a pay rise as they work very hard and well as a team! We ran out of toilet tissue on more than one occassion - as they only supply one roll at a time. The blue tooth laptop connection is very complex and secretive - staff have to enter the password on your laptop for you. You can connect via the in-rooom modem for 24 hours or one hour only. I never realised I could connect for just one hour - its not clear. They do not supply or allow irons in the room and the cost of outsourcing ironing via the hotel is prohibitive. The shower was very weak.
i did llike to stay at hotel, the staff was helpfull and friendly, the rooms clean, comfortably and the location was excellent voor the citytrip that we mad!!!
Location is perfect.. just a stone's throw from Piazza Maggiore, etc. Breakfast was good and the staff well-mannered. The room is quite compact
Location. Very helpful and attentive staff. Very nice room. Delicious breakfast.
excellent value and location.Very clean and comfortable.Free bicycles,umbrellas and guided tours excellent additives. Some reception staff were very pleasant and helpful others less interested. First impressions are so important!
Room very small, and overpriced (but understandable given ongoing ceramics fair0
Comfortable. Convenient location. Friendly.
Location was ideal The hotel could do with a litte freshining up
Friendly helpful staff, good breakfasts, nice clean room and bathroom - great, central location It looked unpromising from the outside, but was actually very pleasant, if a bit expensive.
The location is excellent for visiting all the places of interest and museums on foot and is also conveniently near the station from which one can travel to cities like Parma, Modena and Florence etc. The staff were very helpful in providing timetables and prices for train journeys to those cities. There was nothing I did not like during my stay at the hotel.
our room was right over the canal...very romantic! and the location was perfect as we took the bus from the airport! no more than 1/2 block from the bus stop!
Friendliness of staff, great location and big spacious clean room, simple but fresh breakfast
The close proximity to the centre and it is personal and small
The staff were excellent, friendly and very helpful. We were a party of 7 and one of the rooms had to be changed and this was done promptly and with a smile! The linen and towels were changed regularly and the bathrooms were clean. Breakfast was continental but plentiful. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. Two members of our party were in Room 1, at ground level and overlooking the street which made it noisy during the night. Some of the decor and carpets were faded and a bit tired.
I have liked it a lot, perfect location just in the city centre and good facilities No
This was our fifth hotel that we were staying in on our trip and it was the best hotel of them all. It had a prime location, great view, large rooms, clean rooms, great staff, great breakfast, and a very good price. I would recommend this hotel to everyone traveling to Bologna!!
location value for money
Location in downtown Bologna No wireless Internet connection because the router was broken.No international TV channels - only Italian.
We were very satisfied with the buffee breakfast which is not very common in Italy. The centrality of the hotel and the proximity of the down town enabled us to go everywhere by walking. Everything met our needs during our stay. The air in the hotel room was a bit too dry, but this most probably is related to the climate.
Good location.Friendly staff. Charge for internet service
A good place to stay. Our two rooms where clean, quiet and comfortable. Excellent value for money when booked at reduced rate, still a fair deal when paying full rate (considering overall high price level hotels in Bologna). Breakfast above average. Nearby self service restaurant Centro is highly recommended The temperature in our rooms (top floor) was too high, due to the central heating system (on in November), so we kept our windows open day and night. Coffee from the (Douwe Egberts!) machine in breakfast room not recommended, but a real Italian espresso or cappuccino can be ordered at no extra charge at the hotel bar.
The staff was friendly and spoke english well. I had left my wedding ring in the bathroom and called that afternoon from my home in Spain, the front desk found it immediately and shipped it to me. Wonderful customer service!!
Excellent and good value for money Needs refurbishment. However, I'm sure it will be more expensive so as it is, for us, it was great. No complaints whatsoever.
The single room was much larger than I expected. Very comfortable bed and the bathroom was clean and well-lit. Great experience overall!
very well situated; staff friendly and helpful; comfortably furnished; breakfasts good. the situation of the single room meant that it was rather dark and a bit stuffy.
receptionist's and the bar staff was excellent. the overall friendliness of the staff made us feel very welcome. My husband really liked the scampled eggs and bacon!!! I think that if you can provide tea/coffee making facilities you should do so without the guests having to read about it after they have already paid for some.
ideal location for city trip, busy area with mant restaurants and bars in area. it can be noisy if you have room to front of hotel
Good location No
Excellent location and bar with fantastic terrace overlooking the roof tops of Bologna and the two towers. Room a little small but with a very nice sized balcony.
The walls are very thin and not in the least bit soundproofed.
Good location, great breakfast Slightly unfriendly receptionist, but the location, nice room etc. more than made up for this. Also, wasn't aware that the wireless internet advertised int he rooms wasn't free
Staff, Food & Location No Free Wireless, Small bathrooms
Location was excellent: front desk staff were helpful and welcoming. It met our needs for a central hotel. Breakfast was good, but could do with some daily variation.
The staff at the front desk were always pleasant and very helpful. And thank you for the earplugs - our room was overlooking the front square, which was often noisy at night. The earplugs blocked most of the noise.
centrally placed, nice friendly atmosphere, wonderfull terrace
Good location,10 min on feet to Piazza Maggiore. Clean, friendly staff, breakfasts ok. A bit noisy, thin walls, so if there is a 'party' ustairs you wont get much sleep. But in general a place worth recommendation.
This is a great hotel. Nice staff, nice rooms, and the location is perfect - about halfway between the train station and town hall. The breakfast was amazing like the American girls on tv say it. Not bacon & eggs, but huge selection of Italian pastries, coffee, cerials, breads...and Italian pastries. It's one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in and deserves all of it's 3 stars. There is no view because it's in the city center and there is only a small shower - no bathtub. This didn't bother us...just for your information.
Everything worked ok and was good. The level is of 3 stars, so no complains. To get more one should pay more. Too small shower cabin, no place to move and wash...
convenient position, quiet room, range of bread choices at breakfast
Breakfast included in price. Central location. Pub on ground level very noisy throughout Friday & Saturday nights.
central location too much noise from club below until 2.30am
the excellent position near the University, the railway station, the city center yes, I think that they can improve the food of breakfast (more sorts of fresh cheese, vegetables, fruits)
The staff was very kind and flexible. we got a delicious breakfast at 6. a.m.!! just a little bit too noisy in the night- location almost in downtown..but finally we were so tired dat it was not such a problem.
breakfast was great, desk people were good, location also good, there was a television and air conditioning and a safe
The hotel was conveniently located, within walking distance of the Piazza Maggiore and the University. There was a fine little Trattoria nearly next door. The breakfast was one of the best I've had in Italy. Our room was all we needed for two sisters, and quite comfortable.
Air Conditioned on a 106 degree day. Location in Bologna Centre.
Stylish bathroom with excellent shower. Beautiful roof terrace, very atmospheric. The "gold room" we booked was of a good standard generally, but we were expecting a balcony, but there was none. I wonder if this was because we booked through booking.com at a discounted rate? However, this was by no means cheap.
quiet use of Internet is too expensive
It's very nice place,breakfast was beatiful and at all we enjoyed the hotel very mauch,view from a window and the like,you should see...
Helpful staff (English speaking, thank you). Good location.
The hotel is simple, practical, and well localized. People are nice, the service is good, breakfast is good. None
Location, Breakfast, Staff Bed was very uncomfortable
Good location, friendly and helpful staff, great view from roof-top lounge. We had a unit that was across a tiny street from the main hotel....it was noisy and the add-on bed used by our adult daughter was terrible....small and hard as a rock....basically a board set on a frame.
Hotel Touring is within easy walking distance of the main sites in Bologna. We enjoyed our stay here - clean, comfortable room, friendly staff and a nice breakfast buffet. The lack of nearby public parking. I would recommend utilizing the hotel's parking garage even though it is expensive.
The hotel was very well situated for sightseeing within the old city. It was quiet and clean, and the staff was very helpful when needed. The breakfast was excellent. We would definitely stay here again!
Fantastic Location and nice decor. Also very clean parking slight issue...
I liked the close proximity to the city centre. My room 313 is over the cinema so it was noisy till after midnight and the room smelt of old cigarette smoke.
Wifi in the very posh lobby as well as the location in the city.
Location Breakfast room not big enough and poorly laid out
Nice, quiet place but in excellent placement - near tourist attractions. Hotel looks very old, kids were really scary about old paintings on the wall, what gave us extra fun.
not the newest one, lovely for people who like the charm of old european city buildings. Marvellous to me.
The hotel is right in the middle of Bologna. Friendly staff. The room on the upper floor (attic) had an excellent view over Bologna. Good value for price (I had a cheap rate). You could rent bikes, and Bologna is a real biking town, busy but with bike lanes. The interior decoration of the room could have been better. The room will be very warm in summer, because situated under the roof.
relaxing doors to rooms make a loud noise when shut.very dull in reception could do with more light
The location is excellent and there was a good selection of fresh items at breakfast. The hotel staff were friendly and efficient and the room was a good size We requested a double room, but were given a twin which was quite shabby
Close to the City center Front desk officers are to Cold in attitude
A friendly and helpful welcome, the room was very clean and spacious with adequate facilities. Immediate access to city centre and student area location was not a problem. This is a b&b not a hotel. Parking is a problem. Sat-nav use Via de' Castagnoli, not Largo Respighi.
We were made to feel very welcome at Casa llaria. Location was great - right in amongst the exciting student area of Bologna - a beautiful and not too touristy city. A great sense of the medieval in Bologna. We could have done with some advice about good places to eat, as we looked around the back streets for a long time before finding a few restaurants as opposed to cafes. A list of suggested restaurants, a simple map showing location would be a great advantage.
