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 …
... we learned in our pre-travel meetings was that Italians use toothpaste. And probably bleach too. It was an astonishing discovery. In other words, I probably asked a stupid question like, do I have to pack toothpaste? Well, turns out I didn't. Which is nice, you know, seeing as how I did this whole trip with one backpack. A lack of toothpaste begets room for father's truffle oil.
Italy is a magical ...
... on a Monday. Nor did we quite appreciate that the Italians like to siesta in the afternoon so much is closed after lunch. However there is much to visually appreciate and the odd church to pop into (Jules lit the odd candle). Very lovely frescos in most of the churches. I thought that Canterbury was quite content with one big church. We must have seen 4 that were as big in the city and ...
... high which is only leans out 2.5 metres. The one next to it has been reduced in height as it leans out by 3.22m and is only 48m high. We might climb the bigger one tomorrow!! We wandered the streets finding food shops one for me and one for Jules with lovely vegetables!! However the menu tonight will be Spaghetti Bolognese. After all when in Rome etc. Nice hotel. A stones throw from most of the tourist bits. Most stuff is closed on a Sunday I suspect tomorrow will be ...
... above the snow line, there must haze been a considerable amount here as there is still a couple of foot at the rides of the road. There seems to be a vast amount of wagons on the road today, I would estimate that two thirds of all the tragic was HGV's. Because of the time we spent wandering around shops we only got as far as Bologna before finding an overnight stop. There is still lots if snow in the parking place, ...
