Al Cappello Rosso, Bologna, Italy
Excellent service - Great stay
Excellent location. Clean and well designed rooms. The themed rooms are particularly fun and memorable. Breakfast has a good selection for continental breakfast with quality ingredients. The service was exceptional and included a turndown service in the evening-with bedtime treat. Extremely efficient, check in and check out was smooth. Invoicing was correct. Note, there is a local tourist tax that guests must pay per person per night. Unfortunately, there is no gym or pool at this hotel.

One of the best in Bologna - second stay
Second time at this hotel and I spent 4 nights in one of the apartments away from the hotel, recently refurbished to very high standard. All in all very happy and i will certainly book again next year for buisness.

Needs Improvement
Bathroom needs improvement. Very little amenities. Tight, no space for toiletries and to hang towels and garments, shower area is extremely small even for a small person as me. No water heater for two nights. No AC control. We open the windows for air, otherwise it gets stuffy. Quite dated and needs refurbishment I enjoyed though the view from the window, which was the Cathedral on independenzia, towering over the roofs of the neighbourhood. Front staff were nice and friendly. Breakfast not so good...

Very Good8.0
Great location and friendly staff
Really happy with the customer service. Erena working at the front desk was friendly and very helpful. Hotel is walking distance from all the Bologna sights which is great. We booked a classic room and got upgraded to a junior suite free of charge which was such a nice surprise. It is worth mentioning that room 101 ("cheap" style room), might not be to everyone's taste though and if we did pay the extra amount for that room, we would have been disappointed. Finally, rooms have nice amenities and the hotel offers room service from the kitchen downstairs which is a nice option for when you feel like a stay in and want a break from all the wine and dining!
