    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.

    ... to be seen wrapped in the cloths so we decided we would do the Vatican tomorrow instead. I had purchased hop-on-hop-off bus passes online before we left Duncan so we made our way to the bus stop nearby. We got good top level seats and took the bus as far as the Coliseum. We first walked through an area of excavated ruins known as the Palatino. Amazing number of buildings and artifacts dating back almost 2000 years. Then we ...

    ... feel like we're riding 1st. Leather seats with electronic controls for reclining, WIFI, free snacks and drinks, 300 kmh! Arrived at our hostel at about 7pm. Great spot. Kind of like a supersized version of the KOA! We've got our own A/C bungalow complete with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a kitchen. There are literally 100's of these bungalows along with camping spots. There's a supermarket and large restaurant on site and a large swimming ...

    ... out of his buggy and we tore around the stalls loading up the buggy with gourmet delights. We stocked up all manor of cheeses including Charles' favourite Buratta, various hams, fresh sauces, home made tortolonni, breads and Biscotti. The highlight of it all though was the opportunity to taste some amazing vintage vinegars and we treated ourselves to a bottle of thick, syrupy, 25 year old Balsamic. I'm not sure if we can ...

    ... many more porticos. Bologna in fact has 53 km of these porticos that date back to the 11 th century.

    Arriving back in the of town at around 4.30 pm, Stewart and I decided we would head to the top of the Torre Asinelli. Feeling like she had done enough exercise for the day - we had walked more than 12 km, Jeed decided she would do some shopping for supplies rather than climb the 599 steps to the top. Unfortunately my phone ran out of battery so ...

    After being shown around the apartment and making payment we headed in search of the famed two leaning towers in the center of town. We stopped on the way at "Gelateria Gianni" near the Piazza G. Verdi. This was probably the most delicious gelato we had had the ...
