My husband and i were looking for a romantic place to stay in Italy for a short break.We'd researched this hotel on Tripadvisor before visiting Bologna, and were not disappointed...it was just as we'd hoped. We were met at reception by cheerful, friendly staff and were promptly given our room key despite being 2 hours early.
The hotel is well maintained and clean. We had a fourth floor double room overlooking the square, which was quite noisy at night, but not enough to disturb us or deter us from sleeping, especially after all the trekking we'd done! It was immaculately clean with pristine white cotton sheets and a gold embroidered theme in the curtains and matching wallpaper. There was a slight sense of opulence in the decor, marble in the bathroom and lovely white fluffy towels fresh each day.
The breakfast was exactly as photographed by a previous reviewer, a sumptuous variety of fresh fruits, pastries, cheeses, ham etc and the alternative of cereals and yoghurt or something cooked on request. The staff at breakfast were brilliant, polite and helpful but discreet, especially appreciated by someone like me who needs a couple of coffee's before getting into chatty mode!
This is one of the nicest hotels we've stayed in.
