Welcome to the Bologna Art Hotels!
I’m Serena and, with Cristina, I’m the owner of the Bologna Art Hotels.
Pay me a visit at the Hotel Commercianti, and I will help you not to choose only a room, but your room.
The room of the Capitain, the room of the Glossatori, the Tower room, the Astrolabe room, as well as the Vannini room, the Duchess room and many others, are unique…come to discover their uniqueness.
Did you know that you can go up to the top of some medieval towers and see Piazza Maggiore from above? Have you ever visited the workshop of a luthier or enjoyed an aperitif on a medieval tower? Do you know how the tortellini are made? Just ask me and I will recommend you where to go, and help you to make your stay unforgettable.

Luca_GambiniLuca Gambini
Booking and Marketing Manager, director of leisure services
My name is Luca Gambini, I joined Bologna Art Hotels on June 2006. I started as a front office manager, then once my skills in the “hospitality sector” improved, I changed jobs and embraced  increasingly important tasks until I get my current position. After 3 years at Art Hotel Orologio’s reception desk I have been included in the Ospitalità a Bologna project. My long experience is at your disposal to create customized vacation packages, to organise weddings and meetings, and your activities in the city, to choose within an eno-gastronomic tour linked to a cooking lesson, or a shopping session with a personal trainer, or a gala dinner, a dinner in a typical trattoria or restaurant and cooking lessons, guided tours, wine and food tours, a test drive with a Ferrari, and many more, all the best to make your stay in the city unforgettable.
