The property is beautifully furnished in regency/edwardian style, overall impression was excellent. Room was large with kingsize bed, unfortunately it was very hard. We obtained an extra duvet from housekeeping and folded it double to give us some more padding. Reception was quite helpful but no details of evening/lunch time meals were available.breakfast was excellent buffet style. If menus were displayed then I am sure more people would eat in the hotel. The Gala dinner on new years eve cost 130 euros a head which we thought was excessive. Did our own thing with great lunch out and snack in the evening to see the New year in in the main square and on TV. Love Bologna, our second visit but Oh! the crowds and cigarette smoke,yuck!
