Art Hotel Commercianti

Reviewed 1 May 2014

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful and put up with my trying to speak Italian.

I got the bed to accommodate my large, northern-European body without any problems and the room was spacious enough and clean. The hotel is just off Piazza Maggiore so ideally situated.

The wifi did not reach my room very well but there is a kind of office setup near the lobby and it worked fine there.

I was positively amazed by the breakfast. I'll try and upload some pictures of that now...

We stayed at the Art Hotel Commercianti over Easter 2014. Our room was comfortable, and well equipped, the hotel is very well located just meters from Piazza Maggiore, and yet it is quiet and tucked away. The building is beautiful and the staff reasonably obliging. The breakfast is adequate. But that is it. No real bar, no gym, no restaurant, no anything. I thought calling it four stars was a bit of a stretch. It was however very good value, and given the location eating out was never a problem. We would go back, which is a recommendation of itself, but have our eyes open to the realities of what was on offer. Definitely as for a room on 3rd floor.

Room Tip: £rd floor facing the cathederal

La ringraziamo per la recensione che ci ha scritto. Il nostro hotel ha sede nell'antico Comune di Bologna del XIII secolo, è un edificio storico che non può essere ampliato quindi non abbiamo possibilità di aggiungere una palestra ne il ristorante, ma la nostra posizione centrale, proprio in Piazza Maggiore, compensa quelle che potrebbero essere carenze strutturali. Abbiamo una convenzione con una palestra che si trova esattamente dietro l'hotel e con ristoranti per qualsiasi gusto: se chiedete alla Reception il ristorante che si trova a 20 metri dall'hotel vi porta la cena o il pranzo in camera. Se tornerete a Bologna vi posso altrimenti consigliare di prenotare le nostre Suite Houses: sono soluzioni a 5 stelle deluxe con parete attrezzata per fare esercizi ginnici, sauna con cromoterapia e bar. Tornate presto a trovarci e scoprirete che con i nostri servizi extra possiamo essere qualcosa di più di un semplice hotel 4 stelle!

Great choice if you want to stay in the center of Bologna, like friendly helpful staff, hotels that have an intimate feel, rooms that are large by European standards and well appointed.
We were fortunate to have a room with a balcony that we could relax on and enjoy the Spring sunshine. Breakfast was very good with multiple choices in food and coffee.
We will certainly stay here again, It hit all the ticks on our must haves.
My recommendation would be to take a taxi from the airport to the hotel, they drop you off outside the door, very convenient, as opposed to the bus and then having the challenge of finding the correct alley they are down (less than 20 Euros)

This is a lovely hotel right in the middle of all the key tourism, shopping and restaurant areas. Nice rooms with great renovated bathrooms. Internet is a nightmare though!
Staff is friendly and very helpful. If you need a good restaurant recommendation or reservation they know it all and are happy to help.
Breakfast is great with a lot of choices.

Room Tip: try to avoid rooms near the elevator

This is a good choice for the traveler. It is in the center of Bologna and is right by the main duomo and adjacent market. The hotel rooms are clean and large by European standards. The rooms are clean and tasteful. Highly recommended.

We were here for a long weekend. Good sized room with shower and even some storage. Very clean, pleasant staff and a good breakfast. Brilliant location just off Piazza Nettuno and very quiet. We even had a small balcony. Will be back if we can get a similar rate.

the place is hard to find especially on a weekend when only pedestrian traffic is allowed in the center of the city where the hotel is located.
The room I checked into was rather small but the bathroom was almost the size of the room. The hotel is adjacent to the church and you can almost touch the church walls from the balcony.
overall it is a nice hotel with decent service.
