If you love the atmosphere of antique residences with lavish history, your choice should be the Hotel Corona d’Oro (Gold Crown Hotel) constructed at the beginning of 1800 in the historical Piazza Azzoguidi in the heart of Bologna. At the end of the XIX century protected by an open glass window, what used to be the internal courtyard has been transformed into an incredibly atmospheric room; the walls display the époque of liberty style. There is an imposing lounge with a majestic arched ceiling and a painting of 15th century that towers over the consoles, reminiscent of a time of splendour that these noble buildings have lived leaving the warm atmosphere.
The guest rooms are decorated according to various periods. However much you try you will not find two rooms the same: in some you will be surprised by the ceilings painted with landscape scenes of the 14th century and in others you will find liberty style ornaments, and some enjoy the fantastic view of the medieval towers of Bologna. The bathrooms are small but well equipped.
The Hotel is located in the city centre, right in the elegant via Oberdan with its fine shops and being the road that guides you to famous Two Towers (Due Torri) a short distance away. Also Piazza Maggiore is quite nearby.
Bologna is a city with turrets and porticos which stretch out for kilometres, but it is not ostentatious. Often, the city's most valuable treasures can be found tucked away in magnificent Renaissance palaces, in churches which have been deconsecrated and restored, beneath gateways or inside courtyards. The city attracts a considerable amount of visitors each year to a variety of exhibitions. It offers an excellent infrastructure and quality services, which facilitate visitor's stays and help render them as pleasant and enjoyable as possible.
