“Excellent, friendly hotel in a quiet location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2013

We stayed at this hotel for a week and it felt like home. The staff were all incredibly friendly and even though we arrived early, we were given coffee and pastries on the rooftop terrace. We upgraded to the suite on the 4th floor that had its own balcony where we drank prosecco every evening. Breakfasts are simple and tasty. The best thing is that whilst it is near the centre, the rooms are very quiet. Would recommend.

Room Tip: I would definitely try and upgrade or get room with a balcony on the 4th floor.

My two children and I stayed at Hotel Touring April 4th for two nights. I upgraded to the double room with pull out couch. The room had a balcony with a lovely view. One floor up was the roof top lounge, which had an equally spectacular view. The service was excellent. The staff was kind and very willing to assist us with any questions or arrangements. The location is very convenient. The value for the price was great. I would recommend Hotel Touring and would stay there again without hesitation.

Room Tip: If you have more than two people, upgrade to the double--it's worth the money.

The staff are great, really helpful and friendly. The rooms are very very basic and the breakfast is slightly below average. The location is what really makes this hotel ideal for a City break. So if you're looking for a room (without a view) to enjoy Bologna, then this will suit your needs. If you're looking for a great hotel experience, then this is not for you

My partner and I have already stayes twice at the Touring. We go quite often to Bologna because we love its atmosphere and Italian charm and we stayes in other hotels that did not meet our expectations. However this hotel was a very good finding, perfect location (in a very quite narrow street around the corner of one of the most beatiful churches and shopping area), clean, modern and new suits. The rooms are not very big, but they have everything you might need, if possible stay at a suit with terrace. Breakfast buffet is fine.

The hotel is in the historic part of Bologna. Our room was smallish but had a good sized bathroom and its own large roof terrace with a canopy. There is also a terrace on the top floor of the hotel with great views over the city, we spent time up there taking pictures at dusk.

The staff were helpfully and not fussy, they even managed to get our taxi to return to us at the station after I forgot my camera bag.

The wifi was ok with my laptop but I didn't get great coverage with my phone.

Breakfast was also fuss-free, help yourself although they offered special coffee as well as the stuff in the urn, which was pretty good. I've never seen baked apples as part of a breakfast collation before as well as the usual sort of cheese, ham, pastries etc.

In all a very good stay in great city.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2013

Hotel Touring is well-situated, in walking distance of the central Piazza and the historic areas and the markets of Bologna - a wonderful city, under appreciated by tourists to Italy. The facility is nice, with a rooftop terrace that has great views of the city. Our room was across the street from the main hotel, and felt more like an apartment than a hotel room. It was spacious and clean, but the heating/ac system was very noisy at night. The main thing lacking at the Touring was above average customer service. With one exception, the staff was not nearly as friendly or helpful as the staff at the hotels we stayed at in Venice and Florence. This could be because Bologna is not a big tourist destination. However, if you know what you want to do in Bologna and just need a nice room in a good location, the Touring will do just fine.

I have been staying at the Touring for the last six years, usually for around 5 nights. The rooms are spacious, clean and free wi-fi is provided. As the hotel is owned and run by a family, it is like being at home - warm, friendly, helpful staff and always delicious snacks out on the bar each evening. I love this hotel and would wholeheartedly recommend it. James M.

Room Tip: The Gold rooms are the largest
