Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very nice stay! Clean and comfortable room (room is a bit small, but is specific for Italy and they also mentioned the room size on the site).
Staff was great and always helpful, breakfast had a lot of things to choose and staff also lovely
Location is really close to the main station (max 5 min walk) and the neighborhood is clean and quiet
Also, 15-20 min walk to old city center
Hotel was quiet, you could not hear anything and it was almost full of guest
Beds are comfortable and very clean

A short walk from the train station, this hotel is well located if, like us, you plan to take some day trips to nearby cities. We traveled to Ravenna, Parma and Ferrara and it was so easy to walk just the few blocks to the station to catch those morning trains. It is about a 20 minute walk to the heart of Bologna, but as we stayed in the city the entire day once we arrived, the walk was easy. From the outside, the hotel may seem a little off-putting at first, but as soon as you walk through the entrance gate, you enter a lovely courtyard and see how nice the hotel actually is. The desk staff was very nice, and helpful, the breakfast excellent and the accommodations very clean and comfortable. Right next door to the hotel there is little restaurant that looks very unassuming - but is is Michelin rated and, to our disappointment, we discovered that you need to make reservations a month in advance to get in!

Hotel II Guercino is a comfy,quaint boutique hotel. It is very convenient to stay here because the main Bologna station is only 5 minutes on foot. That is very important when you need to travel to the nearby cities of Modena,Ferrara,Parma and Ravenna. The staff is extremely friendly and they are willing to help when you need assistance. The room was very comfortable although in medium size. It maintains a charm of the old times with color. Clean? Yes, big time. Breakfast is extra super and the kitchen staff is extremely kind. Price? I got definitely what I paid for. It can be expensive at times but that is because the demand is high for business reasons or holidays.

This is a smallish hotel arranged around a courtyard in a quiet area 5-10mins walk from Bologna Centrale railway station. If you are walking to the station, don't use the main entrance, use the entrance on the other side which is the place to get the shuttle train to the airport.

The hotel is under the flight path to the airport which is only a few kilometres away so you may hear the occasional plane above.

The hotel is 20-25 min walk from the main square Piazza Maggiore and the tourism centre of Bologna or a few minutes by taxi or bus. You will pass along a main boulevard with typical Bolognese colonnades. The hotel breakfast buffet offers all kinds of choices and the staff are helpful and friendly. There is no evening meal but just outside the hotel is an excellent Enoteca "La Fermé" which offers simple Bolognese meats and cheeses, and a very good selection of wines.

Just back from 6 nights in such a lovely quirky boutique hotel.

Staff are so friendly and nothing is too much for them, very helpful.

We booked pre covid as non refundable but they kindly allowed us to change our dates twice during covid so finally we arrived 2 +1/2 years later.

A big thank you to Isabella who was delightful and nothing was too much for her and also to Julia who recommended great places & restaurants to visit, all the reception team were great.

Another big thank you to the breakfast team, lovely ladies and the breakfast area theme of chickens is delightfully quirky too. The croissants so good.

We stayed in a superior room for 3 nights and a standard room for the last 3 nights as we added to our original booking. Both rooms were kept very clean, sufficient towels, toiletries and a nice touch of robes & slippers and larger bathroom in the superior one. Italian rooms are reknown for being smaller in comparison to other countries but the beds were comfortable and that's all that matters.
We peeped in at one of the suites, which sleeps 6 and its very nice.

5 mins walk to the station, 15 mins to the airport, 20 mins walk to the town centre. We visited 6 different places in 6 days and Bologna is a convenient base for getting everywhere.

Loved Bologna and top restaurants, trains and eateries very reasonably priced.
We would definitely stay here again, thank you to Isabella and all the friendly, helpful staff, it was a pleasure to stay at your hotel.

Just stayed for one night as we left for Florence the next day by train (few minutes walk from station). The hotel is quirky and we loved it. The staff were excellent and everywhere very clean. A very good sized bedroom which was very comfortable. The breakfast room is set up lovely with very attentive service , great choices and the quality was excellent. It is approx 15 mins straight walk to the main centre (buses available) - I would stay here again even if I were visiting the centre of Bologna - top marks from me and a very good price.

The hotel is pittoresque and cute but a bit... All over the place. Stayed in the junior suite. Our room unfortunately had some mold in the shower and cleaning was inadequate in the room. The breakfast was good and they were very service minded. Did not use the spa. There are a lot of hotels closer to the city centre for the same price where you will get more for your money. It's a cute hotel though!

This hotel falsely advertises “air conditioning and “individual climate control” available in rooms. Beware before booking. We stayed here in May 2024 to find that the air conditioning was “switched off” for the entire hotel. The front desk assured us that it would come on at the end of May 2024 after we’d check out and could not offer us a fan or any other options to cool us down. We were told to open the windows to a 25C evening. Reviewers have commented below and the hotel has responded that this issue was fixed from as early as 2013, but clearly this is still an issue. Stay elsewhere if you want to sleep in a room below 25C every night. We wish we had. Do not believe the amenities included on the hotel’s website.

The walls are also thin as our neighbor knocked on our door late at night to tell my wife and I to stop talking despite us speaking at a very reasonable volume. We could hear his TV volume as well. Note the proximity to the airport means airplane noise overhead at all hours too.

Location is good and rooms are clean otherwise, but consider staying elsewhere if the issues above are important to you.

A very nice hotel with good amenities. Very friendly staff.
The breakfast was decent.
Bring a hairdryer as the hairdryer supplied is ok for short hair, but not great for long hair. There was only 2 plug sockets in the room and one in the bathroom. This makes charging modern day phones, watches and other equipment very difficult. Especially if one of the plugs is located behind a cupboard. The kettle was balanced on the air con unit which isn’t ideal. A shelf would be a good idea.
There aren’t any draws to put away underwear or tee shirts so be prepared to live from your case, however there is a clothes rail.
The beds are made everyday and fresh towels if required.
We used the spa which was lovely, although the pool probably was a clean. We will definitely return as the location is excellent, about 8 minute walk to the station.

I had a single room that was just around the corner from Reception and The Breakfast Room. Handy for utilising the comfy chair smoking area outside the main entrance.

it was a little old fashioned but had tea and coffee making facilities and a small mini bar that doubled as a fridge. The bathroom was large with a good shower and all the bits needed provided..

Breakfast was nice and you could have it out on the Terrace , fresh cappuccino's were available on demand. Nice hot and cold selection.

Close to The Railway Station and not that far from the City Centre.

Staff were excellent - polite and efficient.

Do you have parking?
Answer from Soleil71
Zurich, Switzerland35 contributions55 helpful votes
They actually do have a parking, albeit small, in their central courtyard. And you could find some place too in the nearby roads. Once parked i would recommend visiting the city on foot or by bus. We bought a 10 journey card that we shared between us, very practical.
Answer from VICKY M
DALTON, CUMBRIA, UK11 contributions5 helpful votes
The same answer as 'Soleil71'. The hotel is within walking distance, about five to ten minutes walk. The location was good because you are out of the hustle and bustle of the main center.

BLQ bus from main station (10mins walk) cost Eur 6 per person and was told its only 30mins. The Taxi's are maximum Eur 20 to the airport in 15mins, so if there's 3-4 people in your group ask the receptionist to order a taxi. Saves you walking with the luguage and queuing for a bus.
