Average hostel

We decided to stay here because of its location-10 mins walking distance to city center and this is the only good thing about this place. We felt that for the price (57€) this hostel was not worth it. While rooms are big, the bathrooms were not clean and the "towels" provided were not actually towels. Breakfast was not good, everything was pre-packaged and tasteless. Not the food you expect to have in Italy. We had a car and ended up parking 2 blocks away by recommendation of the hotel and had to pay 24€ for an overnight! Overall I wish we did a little more research, the experience wasn't bad but it wasn't good either

A lovely place to stay for a few days in Bologna. Andy your host is very friendly and welcoming. Rooms are very spacious with high ceilings, wooden tiled floor and small balcony. Breakfast is served in your room at your convenience. Location in Old Town is pretty quiet with some nice restaurants and a fantastic gelateria nearby, and only 10-15 minutes walk to the center of town. Recommended!

Nice stay for a break away

My husband and I had a great time staying here. Andrea was a great host and made us feel right at home. The location was perfect for walking around, nothing was ever too far! Loved it!

A beautiful stay in a very old city

The hotel was very close to the centre and so this meant that we were able to discover the city, which was beautiful. There were so many beautiful shops and places to eat. Both nights we were there we had dinner close to the hotel. The food was absolutely magnificent. The bathroom was clean, had showers, baths etc. the room was warm and comfortable. I loved being in a big old building. It was perfect. I loved staying there. Zeno was very helpful and also prepared our breakfast. If I go back to Bologna that is where I will stay. Heather Deleuil
