Room 214 was quiet and spacious. The bathroom was also quite large. Everything was perfectly clean and comfortable. I particularly want to acknowledge the staff who recommended a great restaurant nearby Montegrappa Pizzeria and Ristorante, and also the helpful staff members who responded to my email from the fast train to Rome: "please send my husband's jacket, left in the room in Bologna to our hotel in Rome before we fly back to the states."

This was one of my favorite hotels in Bologna if not my No. 1 Choice. During my visit in December 2015 rates were still around EUR 140 for a double single use (average rates in the last two years were ranging between EUR 130-150 which is the right price for this hotel in my view). Unfortunately, in 2016 rates have significantly increased. I have been there mid of February (no peak season no trade fairs) and I have paid EUR 200 per night for a double single use (including a discount as I was a lo... Read more

Hotel Corona d'Oro is right in the centre of Bologna, just a five minute walk from the high street and two towers which makes it the perfect base for a weekend in the city.

The lounge is a glazed courtyard where tapas and drinks are available for ‚?¨10 each evening.

We really liked this hotel - slap bang in the heart of Bologna, and yet, if you get a room overlooking the central courtyard, it's like being in the countryside. It's a traditional rather elegant old place, so no bling needed or wanted. Helpful pleasant staff, and a pretty good breakfast too. The WiFi works, the room was comfortable, and the bathroom was good. Nothing to grumble about, and much to cheer, so highly recommended.

The photos of the hotel on-line are much better than the actual appearance. We paid over $450 per night for a room that was less than average. We spoke to the manager about the cost, especially after I noticed that the hotel was advertising rooms for $299 per night, and he showed us a room a little smaller, but not to demonstrate a difference in price. He brought some slippers to the room, a bottle of cheap prosecco, nuts, etc to hopefully appease us. Since we just got in from a long flight,... Read more

After a mix up with rooms and ending up with a classic instead of a deluxe we were moved into the deluxe in the evening. To make up for the mistake they gave us a bottle of wine and through in the parking for free. The rooms in the hotel are as you would expect from the website photos.

Poor service, inconvenient parking, and extremely basic rooms is what you can expect. Granted, we knew we weren't reserving a room at a 5 star hotel, but even for this level, we expected more. Emailed the hotel no less than 5 times for dinner reservations with no reply. The parking (‚?¨35) is at least a 10 minute walk from the hotel so unless you have only a carry on, it's extremely inconvenient. As for the rooms, they were clean, but at the very lowest level of basic. Towels are few and th... Read more

An early arrival could have been a problem at many hotels around the world but the receptionist at Corona took this in her stride. She welcomed us warmly and set about arranging the room. While small the room was beautifully fitted with quality furnishings and decorations. Classical music piped into the room on entry was a nice touch. Bologna has much to see and so we didn't spend enough time in our room! Breakfast was excellent. Everything at Corona d'Oro was done with style. I will return!

We found this hotel on line. What a piece of luck. Bologna is a fantastic base to see this part of Italy. (The rail station is only 10-15 minutes walk from the hotel). We did a day trip to Venice. That said Bologna is a great place to visit, and Hotel Corona D'Oro is right in the center. You can do everything from here by foot. The hotel itself is fantastic, the location, decor and cleanliness, but above all the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. They were fantastic.

On this trip we actually stayed one night before going to Florence for the weekend so packed an overnight bag and left our luggage in storage. On our return our bags were already in our room (214) and all we had to do was unpack. The room is very comfortable and such features as a tea tray and flat screen TV have been added since our last visit in 2... Read more

This is not one of the big-name hotels in Bologna, but it deserves more attention. It's extremely well-located and comfortable, with a helpful and knowledgeable staff. We were very pleased with our visit, and recommend the hotel enthusiastically.

Bologna is a gem, partly because it doesn't feel touristy. We had problems arriving to the hotel because the streets downtown are closed on weekends. I would have appreciated a more deliberate heads up than a note on the reservation. They do have a garage but our driver from Siena would not be aware of it. We had to walk our luggage a few blocks. Not a particularly warm reception. Very nice lobby. Room was ok. Essentially no view. Main problem was ongoing urine smell from the bathroom. It seem... Read more

I stayed here for two nights in October. From booking through to check out, all my interactions with the staff, whether via email or in person, were quickly and politely handled in a very friendly manner. I had a suite, which was the most comfortable space I have had from a hotel in a long time. The room was well proportioned with clever storage and use of space. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and huge! The hotel's location is close to the heart of everything I wanted to see and do, making ... Read more

We watched the Rick Stein programme about Bologna, when he stayed in the Corona D'Oro 1890 and decided that it looked a great place to enjoy a long weekend to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary this weekend (30 Oct 2016). It was an inspired choice (thanks Rick). The hotel is fabulous and the staff could not be more friendly and helpful. Bologna is a foodie paradise and there is more culture here than you can shake a stick at. The oldest university in the world (dates to 1088) churches and ot... Read more

We found the Corona d'Oro a prefect hotel for our stay in Bologna. Just step out the door and you are in the heart of the city - what could be better. The hotel itself was very good - the rooms were quiet, comfortable and spacious and the breakfast had a great selection and was always well stocked. The immediate area around the hotel has a number of coffee shops (Trezi is right next door and well worth a visit ) and some great cafes for a drink or a meal if you don't want to venture into the Pia...

A beautiful old hotel. The rooms are very nicely decorated with comfortable beds (although quite small). This hotel is very close to the train station which makes it very convenient. You can not get any closer to the center of town and all its charm. They offer a very good breakfast buffet which was included in the cost of our room (otherwise it is 18 Eros). They have a "happy hour" with a very small offering of snacks for 10 Euros/drink (I did not think it was worth it). my recommendation... Read more

Excellent location right in the centre of the city, within 2 mins of the food market. The rooms were well appointed, a good size with a large bed and very clean. The staff were extremely helpful and polite. My only suggestion for improvement would be with the breakfast, which had a large continental selection although the cooked food was tepid at best - with so many places to eat locally, bed and breakfast would be my preference if I had the opportunity to stay in Bologna again.

It's quite a small hotel and not new, but really well kept and clean. Service was perfect, front staff was nice and helpful. Location was also handy for town centre, everything was within walking distance. Great restaurants nearby. Room was also on the small side but that was fine for us. Bed was comfortable. Can definitely recommend.

This is a beautiful hotel with an excellent location in historic district. We arrived earlier than check-in and appreciate the front desk staff was able to give us our room. The deluxe double was well furnished, with nice amenities and a small terrace with chairs. The breakfast buffet was literally a delicious work of art. All staff we came in contact with were professional and helpful. Highly recommend this lovely hotel.

As a travel writer I am used to stay often in hotels. Corona D' Oro is one of these exceptional places that offer everything a traveler needs: it is located in the very center of the historical center, it is elegant beyond words and the staff is always there for you. The building was the house of a noble family of Bologna and this explains its atmosphere as well as its luxurious touch. The hotel is having even its own "portico" (an arcade of sorts that makes Bologna architecturally unique). Ma... Read more

The Corona D'Oro is located right in the centre of the city and very well placed in relation to many of the key attractions. It is quite discretely placed on a pedestrianised street and it can be difficult to spot unless you look for the sign of a golden crown which hangs from it above the street. We stayed there as part of a fairly large group and everyone we stayed with was impressed by the quality of the rooms and their comfort level. The rooms are light and bright and spotlessly maintained ... Read more

This is a lovely and elegant hotel perfectly situated in the center of the old town, convenient to everything, mostly by walking, or a very short and inexpensive taxi ride. The reception area is lovely, well appointed, and the reception is extremely friendly and accommodating; they will do anything for you. The rooms themselves are comfortable, with satisfactory amenities in the bath, and in the bed (comfy sheets and pillows). Unless you are the top floor, which is the second floor, you will ...

Hotel Corona d"Oro 1890 is on a quiet street near major sites, on 2-3 minute walk to Piazza Maggiore and 15 minutes to the train station. While the hotel does not have an on-site restaurant, there are many excellent options nearby. Breakfast has a wonderful selection from which to partake, and the hotel offers an apperitivo hour at 6:30 pm with a buffet. My room was comfortable and reasonably sized with a bathroom much larger than typical Italian hotels. It was a nice touch to have speakers ... Read more
