  • Location is great for students who live in Bologna but also for tourists keen to see the landmarks of the city. It is a place rich in culture, history and tradition.

  • Institution in Bologna has taken on a symbolic value and importance for the enrichment of culture and for different occasions produced or accompanied. Meeting place for students and a steely of interest perhaps unpredictable

  • Worth a visit already see the beautiful central space, once the seat of the commodity stock exchange (stock grains and animals ...), with a beautiful ceiling. Interesting to see some of the villanovan, Etruscan, Roman and medieval archaeological artefacts recently unearthed and that testify to the city's history. The hotel has an extensive media library: books, newspapers, CDS etc. open to all citizens. Numerous spaces for children, exhibitions, cultural activities of all kinds.

  • Enlightened library and fun to explore. A central city library that serves both locals and visitors to the city very well. Within the library complex are function spaces for meetings and events. The piano can be played from 7:15 pm to 8:00 pm during the week when the library is open. NB the public toilet will cost you 50c downstairs.
  • The library is fine if you wanna take a coffee or a snack, but not if you have some work to do. It's quite crowded since it's in a very touristic place and it isn't so easy to focus on what you're doing.
  • Bellissima, da vedere e vivere
  • Great place to work, with free wifi!
  • Come dovrebbe essere una biblioteca!
