A Central Location in Bologna May 20, 2012
The Best Western Hotel San Donato is very centrally located in the University Quarter of Bologna. Located in an ancient building--the Palazzo Malvasia--which was formerly a monastery, the Hotel San Donato is close to the main historical sites including Piazza Maggiore (five minutes), a block from Le Due Torre (the two towers), a block from Oratorio di Santa Cecilia and about a five to ten minute walk to Abbezia di Santo Stefano.

Rooms are modern and my bed was comfortable. My shower also worked well. Because this building is old, however, certain renovations are prohibited due to building protection codes and rooms can be a little noisy. The floorplan is apparently very similar to the layout of the former monastery. If your room faces Le Due Torre, the room may have a spectacular view. Unfortunately, my room faced into a wall with no view.

Amenities at the hotel include a tasty free breakfast buffet which includes eggs, croissants, pastries, yogurt, salami, cheese, cereal and a few fruits and vegetables. The second floor hotel bar also offers food during lunch and dinner for a charge such as mozzarella and tomato salad, pizza, lasagna or sandwiches.

Staff at the hotel are friendly and helpful but the biggest plus at the Hotel San Donato are the terraces scattered throughout the building. I sat at an outdoor table outside the bar one evening looking at Le Due Torre. For five euros, I had an amazing view with a cold Italian beer which included a plate of potato chips, pistachios and green olives at no charge (this was my dinner). The view was something I will remember in years to come and as the hotel is in the University Quarter, guests could hear a great student street band performing with guitars and kazoos. I was touched that I sat down at a table without a tablecloth and the barman insisted that I have a tablecloth as this was a sign of respect.

Overall, if you are looking for a central location in Bologna with incredible terrace views, the Hotel San Donato cannot be beat. This hotel is about as centrally located as you can get. Just be aware that due to the age of the hotel, some of the rooms may be noisy.

Nice hotel in the city center Aug 27, 2008
A nice hotel in the heart of Bologna with it's own parking (23 euro a day) and a 24 hours reception. The location of this hotel is the biggest plus of the hotel. It's just very hard to find. Because it's in the historical center, it's a limited traffic zone and most roads are just one way, it takes a while before you get there. BUT: You won't be more in the heart of the center! Another big plus is breakfast that you can have on the roof so you'll have a great view of Bologna. There's a big breakgfast buffet with lots of juices, cakes, yochurts and fruits.
