Closely related to the city history, the hotel never stopped changing. Two steps away from the Piazza Maggiore, the Art Hotel Commercianti offers a stunning view onto the San Petronio basilica and its wonderful gothic stained-glass windows. Completely unusual, it integrates elements of middle-aged decorum to its current architecture.
In the bedrooms, you'll therefore be able to admire the vaulted ceilings and exposed beams of the original building. It is also worth mentioning the frescoes painted on the walls according to ancestral techniques. Fabrics, furniture and interior design have been chosen in accordance with this architecture, which gives the hotel a warm and romantic atmosphere. From the terrace of certain bedrooms, you'll feel like you could almost touch the basilica's brick walls. And if you are lucky, you could even listen to the organ being played.
The offer of Art Hotel Commercianti includes free breakfast, wireless connection in almost all premises and a bicycle loan service. For some unique culinary experiences, it will also be possible to book a table at a typical restaurant in the centre of Bologna.
