As well as the Piazza Maggiore, you will also find Fontana di Nettuno and Basilica di San Petronio nearby. The hotel is located in a small narrow street where the traffic is very limited.
This hotel is considerably different to many of the other central and traditional city hotels. It is more individual and the owner Roberto takes great pride in creating a friendly and hospitable atmosphere for both adults and children that visit. You can enjoy the breakfast buffet on the covered porch overlooking the courtyard and it is a true oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the busy city.

San Mamolo is located in an exceptionally peaceful neighbourhood in the South of the centre of Bologna. The hotel is located next to the street, but a quite one. There is only 100 metres to the vibrant Via D'azeglio and a 10-minute Walt to the historic centre.
There are three restaurants just around the corner, and as soon as you step out of the hotel you get presented with all the classic Bologna, with arcades and the characteristic yellowish buildings.
The service is friendly and attentive, lovely breakfast. "Cosy" is probably the closest we can get to an accurate characterization of this place.
There is a wonderful little patio that connects the reception and the breakfast buffet, it must be amazing during spring and autumn. And oh, be aware of Romeo the 'hotel-cat' - he can be a little overexcited if you pet him. We would love to stay here again!
