It's a short walk from medieval Bologna yet located on a quiet side street. The exterior doesn't do justice to the regal and spacious interior. The staff were courteous and helpful but never fawning. The ground floor bar served me the most perfect cappuccino. Our standard size room had everything we needed. Thank you Royal Carlton for a superb break.

The breakfast buffet that is included is the best. Such a great variety of foods. We only needed to go out for each day as the breakfast filled us up until the evening.

Ac in the first room didn’t work. Given a new room with a disconnected TV and a shower that needed ‘jury’ rigging to operate. Expected more from a hotel that charges what it does. Staff helpful. Super breakfast.
