A wonderful hotel, one of the best in which we've ever stayed. The public areas are beautiful and dignified. The service was impeccable and gracious, but not stuffy. And the room was truly grand. The breakfast, included with the room rate, was amazingly good, with a diversity of delicious selections. We were also delighted with some unexpected extras: the display of an archeological dig downstairs near the breakfast area, and the attached restaurant with fantastic food and an authentic historic fresco ceiling. All in all, very highly recommended.
We also recommend Bologna as a city to visit. It is much less touristy than nearby cities such as Venice and Florence, but is fascinating in its own right, with a historic plaza, a funky university district, and the ancient, deeply moving and very distinctive, San Stefano church complex.
The Palace is quite and old, grand hotel right in the centre of the main area of Bologna. You couldn't wish for a better location. The breakfast is the best I've had on my current tour round Italy, giving you (more or less) a full English if you want it, all self service too. My only problem was my room being too small on the top floor (travelling alone) and the wi-fi was slow, social media at best. Really enjoyed it though and would happily go back.

public transport is very accessible from this hotel . just less than 2 minutes walk from the hotel. But the carpet are very dirty and the staff somehow distant and the service can be improve.
from the side where my room was located, I could hear the Tv next to my room until its was turn off later that night.
"Fabulous Hotel, they have everything just right! "
This is a great little hotel that I can't recommend enough. The staff are lovely and helpful. The rooms are really nice and my room was nice and quiet - 503. Great location too. A very well thought out hotel.
When we finally found the hotel, no help from TomTom here as the roads are closed to the private car and the immediate area has been pedestrianised, we were very pleased with the hotel and surprised at its 2* rating as it deserves much better than that.
The staff were extremely helpful, parking the car is more of an issue but directions to an underground Car Park were given which is about 15 minutes walking time.
This hotel is in the prime part of Bologna's busy city center. The hotel is in need of some upgrades but that's what you expect with an old hotel. The staff is excellent and accommodating. One warning, don't drive a car if you avoid it. Hard to find and parking at 30 euros is expensive.

Right in the centre of Bologna just off Via Independenza, we enjoyed a 4-day stay. The staff were superb, helpful and multi-lingual. Our room on the first floor had an outside balcony, a spacious bed, and well-equipped bathroom. Breakfast was also good, though to English tastes, the bread was the worst I ever ate. This became a condition of bakery in Bologna. Oh dear! When we arrived, however, the reception staff gave us some splendid recommendations for restaurants. alovely hotel better than it's star-rating

Extending from the piazza, over 40 km of porticos provide shelter for pedestrians. About a 10-minute stroll east, the venerable University of Bologna dates to 1088.
