The Hotel San Donato is beautifully located at the edge of the university area and within a short walk from almost everything you will want to see and do in Bologna. The desk staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was nice, and the breakfast buffet was excellent (including scrambled eggs, sausages and bacon among other hot items in addition to the usual continental fare). It's a bit of a hike from the train station at Bologna Centrale and, until you get your bearings, it's easy to get lost in Bologna's medieval streets. But the hotel is only a short block from the Two Towers (great view of them from the bar in the hotel) and that landmark is well marked on every map. There is a café/bar in the square in front of the hotel, which gets noisy at night (the in-room amenities included a pair of ear plugs!), but my room was in the back of the hotel so this wasn't a problem at all for me. All in all, a nice hotel and a great value.
