”We came to Bologna so my husband could visit the Ferrari & Lamborghini factories and fell in love with Bologna. This hotel was perfectly situated to explore the city. Elena (spelling?) made wonderful restaurant recommendations that gave us a true Bolognese culinary experience. Their service was terrific and the accommodations were very nice! Great breakfast as well.” McTravel 23/12/2016 from TripAdvisor

Reading Room


Our library: The new reading room is a quiet area where you can relax before turning in for the night or while you are waiting to go out or depart. The discreet décor in soft colours and the fireplace make this the perfect place to organize small meetings, interview or other appointments. Our family decided to name the room after the much-loved late Bolognese singer-songwriter, Lucio Dalla, and we use it for small events with readings, music or food. We hope this has given you a taste of our spirit, our home, your home.

Terrazza Mattuiani Roof Top Bar


The perfect place to enjoy the sunset: the magical moment of twilight, suspended between the light of day and the shadows of the evening. The swallows that fly through a cobalt blue sky to the sound of two glasses clinking in a toast. This is Terrazza Mattuiani, a place of slow vibrations and flavours. High up on the fifth floor, it’s the perfect spot to relax and let time drift by. There’s a cosy little corner where you can soak in the Jacuzzi and then stretch out on a sun lounger to wait for the sunset. (The Bar Service and the Jacuzzi are only open during the summer ( from mid may to october) and, depending on the category of room booked, may be subject to a surcharge).
