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 …
... but this is beside the point. After about 5 hours of walking we decided to negotiate the timetable at an italian bus stop and I got us a bus with a stop two blocks from where we are staying at the Mercure. Tonight I think we might find our way back to the little pizza restaurant in the old city. There is a pizza on the menu that has octopus. This afternoon it is my turn for the dirty laundry process ...
... bag over our shoulder (joelene's laundry) and we went to do our first load of washing and drying. Wouldnt you know it - there is a god - straight across the road was a bar! We had to kill time somehow! So tomorrow we are going to make an early start and do the walk out of the city square to the church of San Lucca. There is a covered stone archway from the outskirts of town all the way up to the Basilica on top. I don't know if it is correct or not but ...
... we had no idea seafood was so prominant. Antipasto of seafood delights on toast, fresh salmon, squiggles, small bite sized morsels. Next bowel of four different entrees,including prosciutto tomato cheeses and seafood. Next a bowel of muscells cooked in lemon and butter, next was the main, a beautiful big whole Mediterranean fish baked with tomato and olives. The waiter bought the fish to our table and filletted there with two spoons. Not a bone in site on ...
... 8217;s especially distinct about Italy- its aptitude for style. Style in its automobiles, architecture, social etiquette and language but most noticeably, in its people. This nation sets the standard in dressing well and I swear by David’s marble genitals, it comes as naturally to them as breathing does to you. The Italians have the ability to marry colour, fit and ensemble like no one else can, made easier by the population being in incredible shape. For most of the ...
