In the center of Bologna's Due Torri sector, within walking distance of the University of Bologna, is this gem of a hotel. It is in the Centro Storico, within walking distance of shopping areas, Santo Stefano Church, and not that far from the train station, Bologna Centrale. The view from the terrace on the 2nd floor is magnificent. You see the rooftops including the two towers, one leaning, one straight, that give the area its name. There is a piazza in front of the hotel, where youths gather which is the reason you will find earplugs as part of the bathroom amenities. However, we felt no need to use them. On the contrary, part of the allure of Bologna is that you can feel its vitality and its youth, while being in the most ancient surroundings. The staff at the hotel was very accessible, fluent in English, and very very helpful. The dining recommendations were outstanding. But then again, it will probably be very difficult to find a bad meal in Bologna! The hotel's breakfast (whcih is included) was varied and the staff will make you the most wonderful coffee, as you request it. The bathroom shower has great pressure and hot water. This is an area we definitely want to come back to, and we will surely stay again at this hotel.
