We had a late check in, which was accommodated really well with clear instructions. Plus Filipo also called me on the day to confirm. Excellent service.
Comfy bed, lots of space and excellent shower. Recommended.

. The location is superb – right next to Piazza Maggiore and within minutes of all the restaurants, shopping and tourist attractions you could wish for. We were met by the immaculately dressed Fillipo who gave us a great introduction to Bologna. The room was immaculately clean and well appointed. We stayed in Francseca and had a balcony with views of churches, towers and lots of roofs. Breakfast was in a lovely cafe around the corner where the service was excellent. My favourite thing was to open the balcony door and listen to Bologna – the hubbub of people having a good time, the bells, the singing in the churches … just perfect!

Visiting Christmas markets is a favorite vacation activity for us and the Drapperie is right in the heart of Bologna’s old town shopping area. It’s very close to Piazza Maggiore and the basilica.
We were there on unusually warm October days and the street cafes around us were hopping. We found a spot with a 5 euro all you can eat buffet and modestly priced wines and enjoyed watching the city’s young people mingle. Other guests at the hotel but, with the windows closed, we barely noticed it.
Our room was small but pretty and functional. Breakfast (included) was typical for Italy: Cheese and sausage, pastries, cereal. Their breakfast attendant made individual espressos for guests.
The location was absolutely perfect, close to piazza maggiore, shopping, restaurants and the market streets. The room was clean, nicely decorated and relatively spacious.
It was also surprisingly quiet given the location. The front desk staff were helpful. The breakfast was less interesting than other hotels we stayed in during our trip but that was a good excuse to sample even more of the delicious food in the surrounding streets.
