At first the approach to this hotel is a little frightening. It is located down an alley surrounded by five story apartment buildings (typical architecture for Italy) and the rear views of a number of store fronts. If you turn your back to the surrounding area and just look at the front entrance you will not notice how run-down the surrounding area is. The lobby of the hotel is very clean and attractive. The front desk reminds me of something out of a Clark Gable movie as do the room keys. As you leave your room you drop your key at the front desk because it has a large brass fob attached to it. You never lock yourself out of your room as it takes the key to lock the door.
The rooms are small but have everything you need to make yourself more than comfortable. The beds are a medium comfort level neither hard nor too soft. two pillows come per person along with an extra blanket so you don't need to ask for them. We had room 204 and had no complaints. Breakfast is limited to cold cereal, cold cuts, cheese, bread, cakes, juice, and coffee/tea. Enough to fill the void but not your typical hot breakfast.
The hotel is located in amongst the local people of the area. They are hard working with a very strong work ethic and tight connection with family.
Around the hotel are many great places to eat at under 5.00 euro's. If you want a traditional Bologna meal with delicious food and a place that treats you like royalty, may I suggest Papa Rae's. The meals run from about 30 Euro's per person but this includes all the courses and 2 glasses of fine wine.
I found that while traveling with my daughter it was great to be able to have a way for us to stay connected. during Carnival the crowds can get thick and it is easy to get separated in Venice. WIND, located across the square from Papa Rae's Restaurant sold us unlocked phones completely set-up with 159 minutes on each including the phone for 29 Euro's per phone. all that was required was photo I.D.
If you are looking for a grocery store try Pam's. it is a 2 minute walk from the hotel and they carry everything.
Things to see include the University of Bologna and the towers. Taxi's are really cheap so don't hesitate to take one when the feet start to hurt. Have fun on your trip! Liz

On the way home, we churched it again. We went into the church of Santo Stefano. It was amazing. The inside of the church had 2 courtyards and the crypt was very impressive.
