Located on the main road through town

Posted Aug 1, 2014
Pros: location & friendly staff who helped us with loads of questions.
Cons: toiletries
Location: great location - on the main road with the big shops leading into the main square & more shops. restaurants found plenty on the road its side streets.
Simple hotel, did the job, location very good - halfway between the bus/train station and main square in town. breakfast continental - typical of what you would find in Italy. room cleaned daily, towels (plenty of them) changed daily also. only downside was toiletries provision - they had those annoying packet ones that are a pain to open with wet hands - luckily we had our own with us.

Excellent location!!

Hotel Donatello was a great choice for my weekend in Bologna. Walking distance to all attractions, and around the corner from the huge Saturday market, I was very satisfied with the lodging. The personnel was courteous and friendly. The only downside was the bed.. I requested 2 beds and they were literally kiddie sized. I feared falling out when rolling over (hence the 3 on comfort). We also had a slight (temporary) issue with the lights in the morning, but the response was prompt and the problem resolved quickly. Breakfast was good, though they ran out of cornetti when we asked :(....however, minutes later there seemed to be one made available left for one of the staff members that sat down to breakfast (hmmm...how did that happen?). All in all a positive experience.

Excellent location

Posted Apr 13, 2014
Pros: See above
Location: If you book to stay in Bologna, you already know why and what this fabulous city offers.
I booked for 6 nights. On arrival it was very disappointing to see that I had been given a dark, dismal room with no window, only a skylight - the remote control for this was faulty - there was no way to open the blind and increase the day light - and the contents of the minibar were at room temperature. As soon as I asked if another room was available, I was offered a choice of 2, both very good rooms, I would have been happy to accept either. But that first room gave me an impression of the hotel I found difficult to change. The best part of my stay was the very helpful and kind woman who served breakfast every morning.

Very neat, but beds need to be changed

The hotel rooms are remarkably neat but they need to stop joining two mattresses to form a double bed. It can be very uncomfortable.

convenient location

Posted Oct 14, 2013
Pros: As above.
Cons: Breakfast might have offered more variety, but it was certainly adequate.
Location: Good location, close to centre. Some lovely buildings and places to visit in Bologna centre.
Main advantage was convenient location close to the city centre. Hotel was clean, room adequate if a little small, breakfast reasonable.

Great hotel - recommend it to anyone...

Posted Oct 8, 2012
Pros: The staff went the extra mile to meet my needs
Cons: Although the rooms were cleaned thoroughly, a strong vinegar smell was left behind
Location: Perfect for seeing Bologna
The hotel was great to stay in. It was a short walk from the centre of Bologna, but perfectly placed if arriving by train and not wanting to walk too far with luggage. The staff were really friendly and helpful. They met all of my requests and even cleaned up my room when I left it in a state (which I am sorry about). Great hotel, the only criticism is the cleaning products they use leave a very strong smell of vinegar in the rooms. Other than that I would recommend it to anyone wanting a well placed hotel to see Bologna from.
