Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel il Guercino Bologna
Terrible location, unfriendly staff
The hotel was ok at best! The rooms were modestly clean. The staff was completely worthless - unfriendly and unhelpful. The location was horrific! I did not feel safe in the location. Cute entrance and lobby and that was it. Bologna was pretty much closed down and all we saw were some pretty shady characters. Even the restaurant next to the hotel was closed. There was no parking and luckily our car was there the next morning. We checked out earlier than expected because we simply could not stay a day longer. We will never go back!
Not a great hotel but the restaurant next door...
This hotel left something to be desired - the room was small and the bedspread smelled of stale smoke. The walls were very thin, spent half the night listening to man in next room coughing all night and the staff weren't particularly helpful. However, the restaurant next door - Ristorante San Luigi was excellent - think I had my best meal while in Italy there. The food and restaurant staff were wonderful. Would I stay at this hotel again - no; would I go back to the restaurant - in a heartbeat!
A charming and personable hotel
Here for the last weekend of February 2004. Arrived during a bad snow storm, luckily the hotel had off street parking. The hotel and our rooms were warm and cosy, the staff really helpful. The manager was a gentleman. He was very attentive and ran after my aunt to insist that she take the last of the hotel umbrellas. Due to the heavy snow, we could not get to our dinner reservations in the centro storico. We ate in the restaurant next door, Ristorante San Luigi, which didn't look at all promising from the outside, but boy was I wrong. But then that's Bologna, fine food everywhere.

I am a little "tardy" ( no, not retarded!) in getting my last few blogs out but thought that I'd still send them off so you can all know that we got home safe and sound...
Thursday July 25th... We got all the cleaning etc.. done yesterday and mom, the kids and I were all packed and ready to go by 8 am... Cory drove to Urbania from his hotel in …
... mosaic tiles and lots of little bars and restaurants. All old but mostly well maintained. Main piazza and duomo had medieval look and were huge. Church was designed to be biggest in Europe till Papa stepped in. Taxi to Ducati 20€ for museum tour which had to be booked and was a bit disappointing cause factory closed this week. Lots nice bikes including first model Cicolino (small puppy) 100cc. Lots ...
... not sure what the issue was though. It was very rowdy and spread across the whole piazza. I had to navigate my way through the protestors when I came out of the ruins as the march had reached the plaza and had grown significantly. I was a little early so wandered to the meeting place - a cafe in the market area - the street the cafe was on was the old gold market street - via degli orefici. The beggars were out and about again and hassling everyone at outdoor tables. ...
... his feet were playing 3 sets of pedals and his hands were also playing across 3 sets of keys so he was working up a sweat. He took the opportunity to strip a few layers between tunes. I then headed to the Salaborsa - I was keen to see the glass floor which you are supposed to be able to view the original city from and possibly visit. I was amazed - the place was bustling - it was not at all like library. The glass floor was spectacular but be cause it was a dull day you ...
... Pisa one gets! The smaller of the two towers leans 3.2 metres and the bigger one leans a far more modest 1.3m. We climbed up the taller one, called the Torre degli Asinelli, which is 98 metres high and has 490+ steps. Some of the sets of stairs were incredibly tiny, and it was impossible to put your foot straight out on the step (Garth had to walk down sidewards very slowly!). There were great views across the city, showing the endless red roofs, the towers, ...
