Dear Guest, I'm pleased to introduce you to the hotel whose name comes from the XVII century painter G.F. Barbieri, who was called "Il Guercino" because of his marked squint.
He contributed, with his original and self-taught painting, to the important historical-artistic period belonging to I Carracci, Guido Reni, Domenichino, Francesco Albani, Alessandro Tiarini and to many other protagonists of classical revival of Italian painting. It is not by chance that the hotel is in via Luigi Serra (he was a painter, too), in a quiet area, behind the railway station, whose streets recall the names of the distinguished mentioned artists.
Its strategic position makes the hotel "Il Guercino" easy for all destinations: Situated at 300 m. from the Central Railway Station, at 1.500 m. from the Fair Exhibition Centre and "Mambo"; at only 20 minutes walking from "Piazza Maggiore", the "Two Towers", "Neptune Fountain" and Civical Archaeological Museum; 7 km from G.Marconi Airport and 70 km from Ridolfi Airport Forlì.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
The location of the Hotel is good, close to the station and reasonably close to the main attractions in Bologna. It is also close to a fairly decent grocery store that supplies suitable breakfast (useful as the breakfast offered by the hotel is 6 euros per person per day). The rooms are a good size, clean and recently refurbished. The staff speak good english and are helpful.
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
A short walk from the railway station. Very welcoming and helpful receptionist. Breakfast 5 euros so not the cheapest deal but there was a kettle, tea bags etc in the room and a shop on the corner selling food till late even on Sunday. Our room was small but very comfortable with an excellent shower room and flat screen TV. The only real complaint - no lift. We had to lug our bags up to the second floor.
This seemed cheap after travelling from Florence and Venice! Great room, that had just been refurbished, although quite small. Watch out for the disco light in the shower!!
