“Gem in the heart of Bologna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Great hotel! Staff is friendly that will make you feel at home during your stay. The rooms were immaculate, and if you needed anything the staff was always ready and able to help. The rooftop terrace has an amazing view of the city and the country side. Walking distance from Neptune Square, and several other sites.

This is a wonderful place. The rooftop terrace is great. Our room was a very good size with a nice terrace and view of Bologna. It is well within walking distance of all major sights and restaurants (two in particular, very close by, were Osteria al 15 and Al Sangiovese). The hotel has clean, pleasant modern styling. The front staff is very good. There is some major construction going on very nearby but, luckily, the noise was minimal during our stay.

This was our second stay in this hotel and it was every bit as good as we had remembered.On arrival we were greeted in such a friendly manner and all the staff were really welcoming and friendly the whole time.
We had a lovely room with a little outside table and chairs.Eveything was spotless and looked recently renovated.
A good breakfast with plenty of choices.
The rooftop terrace is wonderful and we watched an amazing sunset from there.
The location is perfect -very near the main square but peacefully tucked away from all the noise of lively Bologna!
This is the place to stay if you're ever in Bologna!

The Hotel Touring in Bologna could not be better. It has many special touches - just check out the stunning view from the rooftop terrace and the yummy breakfast spread. The staff is friendly and kind. The accommodations are lovely, and I've never felt quite so relaxed and 'far away from it all' in a hotel so centrally located. This is a place to feel safe - you and your belongings, and it is also a place where the staff know the perfect balance of being there when you need them and giving you space to enjoy yourself your way. I highly recommend it for solo travelers, families, and couples. I will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony.

I believe that this is the 5th time we've stayed here, and have brought friends with us three of them. The staff is lovely and very helpful, the location ideal for walking to everything you'd want to see, and it's nicely decorated and immaculately maintained. Parking is tight in this area, and the 25 E charge per night is steep, but there is a public lot less than 1/2 mile away for 12 E per night, called Parking Staveco. Two or three blocks down via Garibaldi there's a grocery store, and there are several chafes and shops nearby. While in Bologna, visit restaurant da Cesari too!

Stayed there last week and was very satisfied with the absolute friendliness of the family and staff. It is a small family run hotel that makes you feel like you've stepped back in time in a good way. Neat, clean, relaxing roof-top deck with bar and hot tub and views of some of the towers of Bologna. Very, very close to Bologna city center and all major sights. Stayed inb a room on the fourth floor which had a lovely balcony. They even provided umbrellas since it was raining!

Room Tip: I would ask for a room on the 4th floor with a balcony.

Came across this hotel on booking.com and it had very good reviews so booked to stay one night.
Turned out that the reviews were spot on. The staff were very friendly, the whole hotel had an quietly organised feel about it. There is a large terrace (with jacuzzi) where you can watch the setting sun over the city with a glass of whatever you fancy in hand. The reception area and guest lounge (renovated two years ago) is beautifully decorated.
Breakfast was taken in what was the basement floor, again beautifully appointed with a comprehensive selection overseen by two extremely efficient members of staff.
Our room (a standard one) was small but there are a whole variety of sizes to choose from. Unusually, for a city centre hotel, there was very little outside noise as it was tucked away from any major thoroughfares. It's location is ideal, barely a five minute walk to the city centre.
Highly recommended if you want somewhere convenient to stay when you are visiting this beautiful city.

Room Tip: 4th floor with balcony overlooking the city rooftops and landmarks.
