“Great little hotel”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

This is a great hotel with super friendly and helpful staff. Rooms were spotless. Lovely roof terrace/bar looking over the city. Great location. Very good breakfast.
At the end of the day visit the roof terrace and have a relaxing drink looking over the terracotta roofs of the city. See all the city landmarks from here. Staff will keep bring you complimentary nibbles. Super hotel to base yourself in Bologna. Only 5 minutes to the main square and other sights.

This is a great hotel to be based to explore Bologna. All the staff were incredibly warm and helpful - giving us fantastic restaurant and sightseeing recommendations and helping to book tables and show us where to go. The roof top bar is a lovely place to enjoy some chilled Prosecco and breakfast was pretty good and plentiful. The rooms are fairly basic but spotlessly clean and it was excellent value. All of central Bologna is within easy walking distance as are a great selection of bars and restaurants. I'd highly recommend Hotel Touring for anyone looking for a good base in Bologna.

The hotel is tucked in a quite side street just minutes from the busy centre of the city, there are a couple of local restaurants, but it takes no time to walk in to centre. There is a superb small pizza bar just around the corner by the law courts. The hotel has a quiet roof top lounge area with panoramic views over the city.

This charming hotel is tucked away in a quiet street, but just a few minutes easy walk to the centre of Bologna. There are many restaurants very close by, so the location could not be better. The rooms are very comfortable and very clean- the new en suites are perfect- everything that one needs is provided .The choice at breakfast was vast- always fresh fruit, good variety of croissants, bread, biscuits , cheese ham ,tomatoes, yoghurts ,cereals, eggs, bacon, sausage etc. I was there as part of a large group, and when we all wanted to have an early breakfast the staff coped well- but they did struggle to keep enough hot/boiling water available. Nothing was too much trouble for staff- always warm and friendly greetings. The roof top terrace is a delight , with fantastic views of the city. On the morning of my departure , as I struggled to get my case onto the corridor outside my room, a chambermaid appeared, took it from me called the lift and sent me on my way. So unexpected , and helpful. I congratulate Manuela Stagni on her lovely hotel, and great staff. If I ever come to Bologna again - I would want to stay at the Hotel Touring.

We had a great stay here. The staff was helpful. Great suggestions for dinners. Beautiful rooftop bar where the front desk encouraged you to visit. Breakfast was very good and a great way to start the day. They will make a cappuccino for you. The rooms were quiet, modern and clean. I would say the only downside was the WiFi. I was bumped off several times in the midst of making reservations and retrieving airline reservations. Unfortunately there was no printer for guests to use and the software on the hotel computer was out of date so I was unable to retrieve or print boarding passes. With a little technology update this hotel would be a 5 star plus!

Location, room quality, staff, all deserving of a 4-star hotel rather than the 3 they have. With parking! Breakfast quality above the norm for Italy. The Touring is ideal as a base for exploring the center of the city, yet just enough off the beaten track for a bit of peace and quiet. Head for the nearby Giardino Margherita for a bit of "rus in urbe". We didn't even check out the roof terrace, which by all accounts is cool too. I had a walk in closet, excellent bathroom, and a balcony. I'll stay there again like a shot.

We've stayed at his hotel twice now and both times felt it was one of the best places in Bologna. My daughter, who attends the University of Bologna, searched around and recommended this place. First of all, it is family run and they treat you like family, so friendly and helpful. Very charming, well decorated and clean. Nice breakfast which is included, parking available close by for 12euro daily (doesn't open till 7am, so beware if you have an early airport departure), easy
walking distance to city center. Neighborhood is quiet and the rooftop terrace has one of the most beautiful views of Bologna. Staff is very accommodating, allowed us to leave baggage at hotel after checkout, so we could still see the city before a later airport departure.Will stay again without hesitation. Very happy!
