    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.

    After noon we hop on another train to Modena, a short 20 minute train ride from Parma. We are in the hometown of tenor Luciano Pavarotti and automobile company founder Enzo Ferrari.

I can only pray that the Chocolate Festival starts on Monday! We leave bologna on Tuesday. Here are Le Torri "gemelle" di Bologna. The two towers are the symbol of the city.

    With the surprise of coming back to Italy four years later, it seemed natural that I would want to come visit Anna and Mauri! Going back for the weekend, the two were just as lovely and welcoming as ever. I spent the weekend visiting their farmer's market stand, waltzing through the vineyard ...

    Great town. It is my favourite Italian town so far. The others prefer Florence to Bologna but not me. I like the wide streets and bigger shops. The people are very chic and stylish and very friendly. They love their dogs and there are plenty of dogs of all types and sizes wandering around. Surprisingly, not that much doggy dos. Either the Bog Dogs are constipated or there is a doggy do fairy running around with a bag because I don't see many ...
