The room was very comfortable and modern in design.The buffet breakfast was well presented and varied. The distance from the city centre was a bit of a hike twice a day.
Good quality hotel reasonably close to both city centre and the airport. friendly staff and good selection for breakfast. Only gripe was the room was a bit too warm at night but they did have a note saying to contact the front desk if that was the case
Rooms arge and comfortable. Excellent breakfast Dinner service slow. Distance from major cites.
Clean, large comfortable bed, jacuzzi bathtub, perfect location, beautiful views from roof terrace.
breakfast was very very very poor compared to the price
the restaurants in town
Very quiet. The hotel restaurant was closed from 30th July to 3rd Sep but I only learnt this upon arrival.
All the staff are friendly and rooms are clean. The breakfast is very poor. The seats at the bar are not comfortable.
Good location close to center, convenient and good hotel. I personally appreciate ´that there is a fitness facility. The personel was vacuum cleaning the bar area frpom 17 -20, and irt awas not nice sitting in the bar. It isa pity because they serbve some nice snacks but no one wanted to sit there.
The room was very nice and spacious. We got a great rate for the room and the location to center city was very convenient.
The walls are very thin and not in the least bit soundproofed.
The staff at the front desk were always pleasant and very helpful. And thank you for the earplugs - our room was overlooking the front square, which was often noisy at night. The earplugs blocked most of the noise.
Excellent location and bar with fantastic terrace overlooking the roof tops of Bologna and the two towers. Room a little small but with a very nice sized balcony.
Good location, great breakfast Slightly unfriendly receptionist, but the location, nice room etc. more than made up for this. Also, wasn't aware that the wireless internet advertised int he rooms wasn't free
ideal location for city trip, busy area with mant restaurants and bars in area. it can be noisy if you have room to front of hotel
Good location No
Staff, Food & Location No Free Wireless, Small bathrooms
Location was excellent: front desk staff were helpful and welcoming. It met our needs for a central hotel. Breakfast was good, but could do with some daily variation.
centrally placed, nice friendly atmosphere, wonderfull terrace
receptionist's and the bar staff was excellent. the overall friendliness of the staff made us feel very welcome. My husband really liked the scampled eggs and bacon!!! I think that if you can provide tea/coffee making facilities you should do so without the guests having to read about it after they have already paid for some.
Excellent location to center piazza. Everything is in close walking distance to the hotel. The parking provided is underground very close to the hotel and is essential for convenience in the city. Staff was very helpful with all recommendations and directions. We requested a quite room because we had a very early departure. The room was very loud with street noise making it difficult to sleep.
location was great,near shopping, sight seeing and good restaurants, breakfast buffet was good and varied, room was clean and staff was always helpful. I would definitely recommend the Hotel and would go back. It was difficult to leave the windows open due to the high level of noise from the street.
Good location. Price to high during exhibition.
quality of the bed, good shower, good breakfast
Friendly staff, complete breakfast, near to the city centre, close to aerobus stop, big rooms with king size bed TV without international channel, onyl on PPV
Close to resturants and central to the town centre.
Room was very quiet(in the back). King mattress superb and very good fresh breakfast. Shower was immense and room was spotless. Stayed for 6 nights. Easy access to train station and 10 minute walk the other way to historic center,university,and upscale shopping. Carpet was rather used -of two star quality. Front staff was the most unhospitable of all the hotels that we've ever stayed in the past 40 years.I couldn't believe they were in the hospitality business.
the staff were friendly the room was very shabby the bathroom was very old and disgusting for a four star hotel.
location, cleanliness, staff very helpful breakfast was dissapointing
in the middle of the centre and the film festival small elevators
Clean hotel room. Close to the historical center, the railway station and the shops. Relatively small room. Expensive wireless internet access.
very nice hotel, tastefully furnished, excellent service rooms rather small for the price tag
Helpfulness of staff and very central location Nothing
Very friendly and professional staff.
The hotel is extremely well located- in the heart of the center. It is a gorgeous old building with nicely decorated, well-appointed, clean rooms. The staff is extremely polite and helpful. The price for the value is quite low- I would have expected to pay a lot more for such a hotel. I travel a lot and this is one hotel which I was very impressed with. And, by the way, breakfast is included and is excellent. I have no negative comments whatsoever. The hotel is top notch and a great value.
Front desk support was excellent. We must thank the gentleman on the front desk. The price is a bit too high.
They offer you a bottle of champagne and snacks on arrival. There is a scale in the bathroom and there is a separate huge shower. The position is perfect with restuarants and shops all around you.
The room was very comfortable and quiet and very tastefully decorated. The location is wonderful. The staff were very welcoming, helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet was very good.
The robes! The lovely sheets and room layout. The breakfast was delicious! The directions to the airport bus were a bit confusing unfortunately, so we ended up taking a cab.
Very helpful staff. Comfortable lovely room Good value
location convenient to everything helpful staff beautiful room and bath very comfortable
good location, diligent & competent staff, well maintained premises. very clean. very good option. one of the best cost / qual. in Italy
The hotel is in the city center near the University. The staff was friendly and helpful.
The staff were nice and helpfull, and the location was very central. The size of the ensuite is very small and I found it hard to access the shower in my room. Also a lift would be nice especially as myself and my daughter had a lot of baggage
The room was very large and comfortable. Free internet access. The day staff spoke didn't speak much English and the night staff spoke no English. This made checking in and out difficult.
Service was personal and friendly. Staff were exceptionally helpful with enquries. Location is excellent if looking for a hotel close to all museums, city sights and shops as well as train station.
Generally comfortable and the room a perfect even temperature, even without the air-con switched on. Generally relaxing atmosphere. Staff very helpful and welcoming. On occasions, the perennial hotel problem of plumbing noise from other rooms, eg other guests taking a noisy bath at 6am.
large clean rooms with friendly and helpfull staff, good location and carpark
Staff were friendly, it was basic but clean Considering we were in Italy, the breakfast was a bit plastic and packaged. People nowadays are looking more for fresh and healthy.
Great location No lifts
The staff is wonderful - attentive and helpful. The receptionist spoke English and the night attendent was also excellent. The location is close to attractions but the neighborhood is so loud with students up all night screaming, police sirens, whistles blowing, that we couldn't sleep.
The staff was not clear about parking conditions therefore we had problems with it.
It was very quiet and close to the city center. The room was kind of small, but big enough for a weekend trip.
Staff were most helpful and pleasant. Disabled room could not be faulted. Breakfast was superb value for money, full choice of breakfast foods on offer. For such a small sized hotel they have very high standards of hospitality and assistance especially for over 60's. The standard of cleaning was slightly disappointing. Dusty on top of the bed headboard and dressing table and television stand. Was there when we arrived in the room and still there after 5 days, but the bed and linen was spotless.
It was very easy to speak with the hotel staff. I was at one's ease.Breakfast was perfect! Nothing. Everything was great!
Location and lovely staff Strange towels and no shower gel (we had to ask for it as the cleaning lady kept forgeting about it)
Friendly English speaking staff, clean, good shower, good selection of buffet breakfast. Location doesn't do hotel justice. Mini bar only had water.
Clean, spacious room and good breakfast choices. The location was reasonably central, although it was down a slighly off-putting scruffy-looking road. No
very friendly, helpful staff. Rooms clean and comfortable, reasonable size. This is a reasonably priced hotel in an excellent central location.
This is a very nice hotel, well decorated and also very comfortable. It is in an excellent location, on a quite street and very close to all the great sites. They have a wonderful breakfast and a compter in the lobby.
Very profesional stuff. Comfort and clean room. Excellent location. Nor bad brakfast.
Wonderful hotel with friendly and helpful staff, in a great location. We would stay here again.
The staff was very helpful and extended themselves to ber sure we were taken care of. Convenient location to railroad station and to town. No
location + cleanliness breakfast could be better
location and staff were very friendly and welcoming the bed was very hard and a bit uncomfortable
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and in a good location although we had a bit of trouble finding it initially. The bed was very hard so I was quite glad I only had to sleep on it one night. Breakfast was not fresh which was a little disappointing.
The location of the hotel is fantastic, just off the main street. For a short city break the hotel is perfect. Very clean and the staff where extremely helpful.
This was an excellent medium priced hotel, very well located near all of the sights we wanted to see and not too far from the train station. The staff was very friendly and helpful. No complaints about the rooms. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to fellow travelers. Good breakfast buffet as well.
Great location and excellent helpful, smiley reception staff. Good breakfast. We stayed in an apartment just across the street from the hotel reception. We ordered the 2 twin beds and a double room. Really enjoyed our stay in Bologna. The double bed turned out to be a sofa bed which wasn't really good enough for a 4 night stay. It really should be a proper double bed. Otherwise a spacious apartment, albeit with a spartan interior, but the solid floors mean that sound insulation is poor and it sounds like upstairs are moving furniture around every night. Smell of smoke in the apartment on arrival.
Great location in side street near centre of Bologna. Everything worked, air con, bathroom etc.
We thought that the staff was amazing. We arrived late, and immediately she welcomed us, and called a quaint local restaurant and made reservation for us, and got us situated. Next morning, she was so sweet she offered us free tour, city maps, and all the details. Our final day, she let us have a breakfast an hour late and in the evening our train was leaving earlier and she called a friend at a nearby restaurant and had him made us home-made lasagna at his restaurant earlier than opening hours. What a wonderful hotel, what an amazing staff. They seemed very gay friendly too.
I have liked it a lot, perfect location just in the city centre and good facilities No
The close proximity to the centre and it is personal and small
Friendly helpful staff, good breakfasts, nice clean room and bathroom - great, central location It looked unpromising from the outside, but was actually very pleasant, if a bit expensive.
our room was right over the canal...very romantic! and the location was perfect as we took the bus from the airport! no more than 1/2 block from the bus stop!
Comfortable. Convenient location. Friendly.
Location was ideal The hotel could do with a litte freshining up
Room very small, and overpriced (but understandable given ongoing ceramics fair0
Friendliness of staff, great location and big spacious clean room, simple but fresh breakfast
The staff were excellent, friendly and very helpful. We were a party of 7 and one of the rooms had to be changed and this was done promptly and with a smile! The linen and towels were changed regularly and the bathrooms were clean. Breakfast was continental but plentiful. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. Two members of our party were in Room 1, at ground level and overlooking the street which made it noisy during the night. Some of the decor and carpets were faded and a bit tired.
The location is excellent for visiting all the places of interest and museums on foot and is also conveniently near the station from which one can travel to cities like Parma, Modena and Florence etc. The staff were very helpful in providing timetables and prices for train journeys to those cities. There was nothing I did not like during my stay at the hotel.
A friendly and helpful welcome, the room was very clean and spacious with adequate facilities. Immediate access to city centre and student area location was not a problem. This is a b&b not a hotel. Parking is a problem. Sat-nav use Via de' Castagnoli, not Largo Respighi.
We were made to feel very welcome at Casa llaria. Location was great - right in amongst the exciting student area of Bologna - a beautiful and not too touristy city. A great sense of the medieval in Bologna. We could have done with some advice about good places to eat, as we looked around the back streets for a long time before finding a few restaurants as opposed to cafes. A list of suggested restaurants, a simple map showing location would be a great advantage.
We were very satisfied with the buffee breakfast which is not very common in Italy. The centrality of the hotel and the proximity of the down town enabled us to go everywhere by walking. Everything met our needs during our stay. The air in the hotel room was a bit too dry, but this most probably is related to the climate.
Location in downtown Bologna No wireless Internet connection because the router was broken.No international TV channels - only Italian.
very well situated; staff friendly and helpful; comfortably furnished; breakfasts good. the situation of the single room meant that it was rather dark and a bit stuffy.
The single room was much larger than I expected. Very comfortable bed and the bathroom was clean and well-lit. Great experience overall!
Excellent and good value for money Needs refurbishment. However, I'm sure it will be more expensive so as it is, for us, it was great. No complaints whatsoever.
The staff was friendly and spoke english well. I had left my wedding ring in the bathroom and called that afternoon from my home in Spain, the front desk found it immediately and shipped it to me. Wonderful customer service!!
location value for money
Good location.Friendly staff. Charge for internet service
This was our fifth hotel that we were staying in on our trip and it was the best hotel of them all. It had a prime location, great view, large rooms, clean rooms, great staff, great breakfast, and a very good price. I would recommend this hotel to everyone traveling to Bologna!!
A good place to stay. Our two rooms where clean, quiet and comfortable. Excellent value for money when booked at reduced rate, still a fair deal when paying full rate (considering overall high price level hotels in Bologna). Breakfast above average. Nearby self service restaurant Centro is highly recommended The temperature in our rooms (top floor) was too high, due to the central heating system (on in November), so we kept our windows open day and night. Coffee from the (Douwe Egberts!) machine in breakfast room not recommended, but a real Italian espresso or cappuccino can be ordered at no extra charge at the hotel bar.
The staff was very kind and flexible. we got a delicious breakfast at 6. a.m.!! just a little bit too noisy in the night- location almost in downtown..but finally we were so tired dat it was not such a problem.
Breakfast included in price. Central location. Pub on ground level very noisy throughout Friday & Saturday nights.
The hotel was conveniently located, within walking distance of the Piazza Maggiore and the University. There was a fine little Trattoria nearly next door. The breakfast was one of the best I've had in Italy. Our room was all we needed for two sisters, and quite comfortable.
the excellent position near the University, the railway station, the city center yes, I think that they can improve the food of breakfast (more sorts of fresh cheese, vegetables, fruits)
Everything worked ok and was good. The level is of 3 stars, so no complains. To get more one should pay more. Too small shower cabin, no place to move and wash...
This is a great hotel. Nice staff, nice rooms, and the location is perfect - about halfway between the train station and town hall. The breakfast was amazing like the American girls on tv say it. Not bacon & eggs, but huge selection of Italian pastries, coffee, cerials, breads...and Italian pastries. It's one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in and deserves all of it's 3 stars. There is no view because it's in the city center and there is only a small shower - no bathtub. This didn't bother us...just for your information.
breakfast was great, desk people were good, location also good, there was a television and air conditioning and a safe
Good location,10 min on feet to Piazza Maggiore. Clean, friendly staff, breakfasts ok. A bit noisy, thin walls, so if there is a 'party' ustairs you wont get much sleep. But in general a place worth recommendation.
central location too much noise from club below until 2.30am
convenient position, quiet room, range of bread choices at breakfast
Location is great. Staff were very friendly Free WiFi Internet reception in the room was very poor, only worked intermittently; breakfast was very simple but decent
it was good for me, central,close to the places where I had to be hm... I realy don't like the small bathroom...but I managed it:))
conveniently located, has free internet in the rooms (wireless & cable), which is (unfortunately) unusual among Italian hotels. Very helpful and cheerful staff. Rooms are a little worn out.
The location could not be better as far as Bologna is concerned. The staff at the front desk were very good and had better English that I had Italian, so that was a big plus. I recommend if location is what you are looking for. I walked to and from Bologna Central no problem. The room was very small but since I was only looking for a bed I cannot really complain. I was on business so €65 was a little steep for what I was getting. Breakfast was not great but hey...You're in Italy!!! They don't do Breakfast! If they knocked €15 off the price and left out the 'prima colazione' I would have no problem with that.
Courtesy of staff. Excellent location. Good breakfast. Room furnishing dreary.
too much noise from the street
the owners were very friendly and helpful, the location is fantastic, the bathroom was spotless and the shower was very powerful seems a shame the guests can't use the lift.
The staff here is very friendly, we came to Bologna to pick out an engagement ring and she recommended some local jewelers. This used to be a family home and then they turned it into a hotel. So it definitely has that homey and cozy feeling to it. Our room had nice views of the City and you can also see the two Towers which are right down the street from the hotel. You do have to share a bathroom with other guests, but there are two bathrooms (not many bedrooms total) - and I never had to wait to use the bathroom.
super cute, helpful, smack center
Unbeatable location. Exceptionally clean and family run. The family are very friendly and kind. Spoke great English except for the mother however she was absolutely lovely and our poor Italian got us by. The rooms were extremely spacious and equipped with a sink in the corner. Wifi was fast and reliable. Bathrooms were very clean and spacious. the breakfast was outstanding! Cereal, fruit, yoghurt, juice, pastry, toast and condiments galore. Plus every morning we were made a proper coffee of choice on a proper machine. Great espresso and cappuccino! We absolutely loved our stay and will definitely return. It's a bit of a stair climb but there is a lift. We chose the stairs to make way for more gelati and pizza and vino, all of which is in abundance surrounding this location.
