Hotel Commercianti: the fascination of the Middle Ages can be found in this historic hotel nestling in the shadow of the Basilica of San Petronio. The Hotel is located just off the main square and a few steps away from all the museums, monuments and the city's most exclusive shopping areas. As you can see from the plaques at the entrance, this was the original seat of the firs Municipality of Bologna (1116) and in 1250 it became the Headquarters of the prestigious "Compagna dell'arte dei Brentatori", the guild responsible for guaranteeing the quality of wine and its trasportation. In 2015 the Chambre of Commerce of Bologna conferred to our hotel a particular award for being in activity for over one hundred years.

Great location and very charming rooms that look like you’re staying at a museum (a style that might not be for everyone). Good service and attentive staff. Our only complaint is that they don’t have AC and it got very warm in our room at night. Having the windows open was a

Grazie per la bella recensione, ci dispiace che abbia avuto caldo, essendoci a Bologna in questo periodo temperature massime di giorno sui 15-18 gradi abbiamo valutato che facesse ancora troppo freddo per chiudere il riscaldamento dell'Hotel. Ogni camera però ha la gestione separata della temperatura e poteva regolarla con il termostato. Speriamo di riaverla presto come gradito Ospite per il Cosmoprof 2020! Un saluto da Piazza Maggiore

I was really pleased to have stayed in this historic building; its location just to the right of the Basilica is absolutely ideal. I enjoyed its efficient, pleasant staff, the generous breakfast and immaculate house-keeping. No negative points whatsoever. On any return visit to

Lovely hotel next door to cathedral in Piazza Maggiore. Clean and comfortable rooms. Maybe soundproofing needs to be improved to filter out outdoor noise. Good breakfast and friendly staff. Highly recommended.

This is an absolutely amazing hotel with historic charm and modern luxuries! Each room is unique. Our double (the "Traveler Room") was very large, comfortable, and thoughtfully decorated. The bathroom was a good size. The bed was very hard but I found this to be typical

Grazie! Ci fa davvero molto piacere che abbiate apprezzato il lavoro dello Staff e la personalizzazione delle camere, il nostro edificio è stato l'antico Comune di Bologna del XII Secolo, è un edificio unico e non possiamo non valorizzare la sua storia! Tornate presto a trovarci, un saluto con affetto da Bologna

It is impossible to say enough about this family-owned hotel. I highly recommend staying here, and sincere in saying that no need to look anywhere else. It is in ideal location in the city, across the little street from cathedral, and quiet enough to not realize you are so close

Grazie di cuore, che bellissima recensione! Il nostro Hotel, pur avendo 38 camere, rimane un boutique hotel a gestione famigliare, ci teniamo molto ad incontrare i nostri Ospiti di persona! L'aspettiamo di nuovo a Bologna, un saluto con affetto da Piazza Maggiore

I don't remember seeing any pets inside the hotel but I am sure it would be best to put your question direct to the hotel.

How far are you from the airport?
Very close. A 20-25 minute walk and about a 10-15 minute cab ride. It's right next to San Petronio and just off Piazza Maggiore. A great location but it's tucked back and not easy to pick out.

We took a taxi straight to the door - pricey but worth it for Day 1 .... 3 people 20 €....seeing that you can walk for days thereafter

come è la junior suite petronio.
Mi dispiace ma non la conosco. Comunque lo stile e' lo stesso, caratteristico e a tema storico. Non ci dovrebbero essere grandi differenze. E' tutto molto curato.

"The hotel honors requests (e.g. large bathroom, view) so just ask."
"look on the travel tools and see the rooms for themselves"
"Make sure you ask for a balcony if you want one!"
"Rooms facing the church - at least you get natural light"
