Technically it's a four star hotel, but the staff were so friendly and accommodating that it felt a cut above. Nothing was too much trouble, and considering we had our 2-year old son with us we couldn't have been happier. Fresh linen daily, extremely helpful staff, and a fantastic restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner if you so wish. We only dined there a couple of times, but the food was excellent. The price of our stay was comparatively low when comparing to alternatives, so therefore I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.
The beautiful young woman at the front desk was very helpful and spoke wonderful english. When we asked her for the name of a restaurant (on a Sunday when many were closed) if you had only 1 night to spend in Bologna, she made a fantastic suggestion. The bed was a king that was firm and comfortable. Breakfast buffet was ok. Good value for the price.
We arrived, and after previously requesting a room on the 6th floor, were disappointed to find we were given a room on the 5th. The receptionist sorted it out straight away and upgraded our room to a Premier Panoramic Room. It was absolutely gorgeous. The view from our window was simply delightful. The breakfast was also lovely, with a large selection of food to suit all needs.
Great hotel, staff, facilities.
The only negative things: can't walk to the city and breakfast is too early : from 6:30 to 9:00. Most stay with families and prefer later time, breakfast place becomes very crowded.
