Review of our 4 day stayPosted Nov 1, 2013
Pros: The atmosphere inside and the staff.
Cons: Small maintenance issues: loose toilet roll holder & towel rack; easy to sort with a regular room-check. Room maids should replenish shower gel daily.
Location: The location was fine for us. It was a 10 min walk into the town centre, but a lovely walk.
We had a lovely 4 days at Il Convento. The staff were so friendly and the style of the reception and lounge, with the old convent decoration, was beautiful. The room was spacious and quiet and well appointed. Breakfast was simple but good (and plenty of it!). We are not sure that everyone would feel totally comfortable walking back to the hotel late at night/in the dark; the smaller streets aren't always very well lighted. However there were plenty of local people walking the same streets late in the evening so the area must be safe and we always felt fine. Bologna is a non-touristy place to visit, with a lively night-life and great shops and cafes. We would stay at Il Convento again!

Good HotelPosted Jun 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had a lovely room with a high vaulted ceiling and a large shower/ wc en suite. The staff were very nice and spoke good English. The location is not quite Central Bologna, but everything is pretty close, and whilst the street looks a little rough it is an ok area, the locals are friendly and the hotel is just lovely. Just down the road on Via Castiglioni is one of Italy's best gelato shops which is well worth a visit or two!

Delightful gem ... sleep in luxury!Posted Jun 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
I found this hotel while booking a last-minute trip to Bologna and it exceeded all expectations. It is centrally located in the heart of the old city and has the friendliest staff imaginable. Eliza at the front desk greeted us warmly upon arrival, helped us park easily in front of the hotel and guided all our eating decisions and tour help during our all-too-brief stay. She was indispensable and so kind. The room itself was perfect and had linen sheets that one only finds in 5-star hotels in Europe. We will visit agin when next in Bologna!

We'd stay again.....Posted Mar 18, 2013
We stayed in the suite room which is on two levels and the layout is not ideal but, that said, we really enjoyed our stay here. The staff were superb and the location is quiet and within easy walking distance of the city centre. Hotel is clean and characterful. Breakfast is basic but enjoyable. The hotel is not a modern, slick, facility-rich, impersonal affair, rather a bit quirky and homely. In a word "delightful".

I loved this hotel!Posted Oct 25, 2012
Pros: Very knowledgable and helpful staff
Cons: Difficult to find parking nearby.
Location: Easy 10 minute walk to centre
Really nice hotel, friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are full of character, and reflect the historical nature of the bulding. Easy walk to Bologna city centre. Only downside is difficult parking, as it is everywhere in Bologna.

Small unusual hotel with great staffPosted Sep 11, 2012 on Hotels.com
Very helpful staff who provided coffee and cake for breakfast when we were leaving before the official breakfast time. Room was a good size and I liked the funky decoration. Comfy bed, good shower and very good choice for breakfast. The room was very clean but we found it strange that room service had been in our rooms in the evening as well as the mornings. Slightly out of the very centre but i enjoyed the "local" style neighbourhood. We were the only tourists at the very basic bar a few yards away- not everyones choice of bar but 4 drinks were less than half the price we payed at a bar in a central piazza. Best gelato Ive ever had just around the corner too.
