When we finally found the hotel, no help from TomTom here as the roads are closed to the private car and the immediate area has been pedestrianised, we were very pleased with the hotel and surprised at its 2* rating as it deserves much better than that.
The staff were extremely helpful, parking the car is more of an issue but directions to an underground Car Park were given which is about 15 minutes walking time.
public transport is very accessible from this hotel . just less than 2 minutes walk from the hotel. But the carpet are very dirty and the staff somehow distant and the service can be improve.
from the side where my room was located, I could hear the Tv next to my room until its was turn off later that night.
"Nice location next to one of the best restaurants "
I checked in and was greeted by a lovely clerk who took me to my room in another building. The breakfast was delicious and the location very good. I like walking and I had been to Bologna before and so I knew where I was, more or less. It was easy to get to the museums and to the shopping area and churches. I dined at Sangovesie, the top-rated restaurant which is on the same block as the hotel. It was simple to walk to the Central Station for my aerobus to the airport as well.
My only complaint is that one wall was a little thin and the resident of the room opposite it slammed it every time.
Otherwise, a lovely stay!
Famed for its medieval towers, Bologna's well-preserved historic center is where visitors can climb the Asinelli Tower for panoramic views of the city's red-tiled rooftops, including the Basilica of San Petronico on Piazza Maggiore. Extending from the piazza, over 40 km of porticos provide shelter for pedestrians. About a 10-minute stroll east, the venerable University of Bologna dates to 1088.
