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.

... spot just before the rain came down! At Trattoria de Noemi we had the regional pasta special - pumpkin ravioli - Capellacci Di Zucca which was excellent! We toasted my birthday with a nice bottle of C******nay Frizzante! We had a fun ride home after that! Kids were excited to ride home in the dark with their tipsy parents. We stopped at a little bar with a couple of old Italian men in it and finished the night with an Italian ...
Today we woke up and it was pouring with rain! It rather put a dampener on our plans to go over to Murano on the ferry. We got absolutely soaked through on the way there and Ziggy had a massive melt down about something or other. Not the best for window shopping the beautiful glass that it is famous for - so we ended up having hot chocolate and croissants! In a better mood we headed back to Venice to see ...
