Outstanding hotel in perfect location for walking in the center historic area. A true 5-star hotel that is friendly and not snobbish. Booked our reservation on Expedia for a superior room, but when we arrived for check-in, the hotel upgraded us to Deluxe room. It was beautiful and large, with a roomy marble bath with separate walk-in shower from tub. Free internet was reliable and relatively speedy. Breakfast buffet was one of the most extensive we have experienced in Europe. The breakfast server quickly learned our coffee preferences and each day would ask if we wanted "the usual..." The hotel common areas (lobby, hallways, etc.) are beautiful. We arrived on Christmas day for a 5-night stay; the decorations were lovely. Staff at front desk and door were friendly and helpful. Location can't be beat. You can walk everywhere, very comfortably. The covered porticos throughout Bologno mean that even if weather is less than perfect, you can be covered on many routes as you walk. Much of main center city streets are closed on holidays and weekends, for pedestrians. The taxi ride from the airport is short (not expensive) and the taxi to main train station is even shorter. Highly recommend this hotel.
