CONVENTO DEI FIORI DI SETA

Bologna City | Hotel | Travel

The Convento dei Fiori di Seta, or the Silk Flowers Nunnery as it is known in English is everything its suggestive name suggests.

Delicate and full of intricate details as the flowers in its name and still boasting some beautiful reminders of its past as a 14th century church.

 

As often happens when visiting Bologna you find yourself truly living the city remarkable history, this boutique hotel is no exception.

The hotel is incredibly small with only 12 rooms of absolute beauty, decorated minimally, to allow the beauty of the building to be noticed, and with a modern twist to clash with the history of the building. 

 

The building wishes to relax and comfort the guests, therefore they created a small wellness centre in the building itself: it features a Jacuzzi, steam bath and a Scottish shower and is open from 4 in the afternoon till 8 in the evening, allowing you time to relax before dinner and after exploring the marvels of Bologna for the whole morning. 

 

The feeling you get from the place is extremely warm as with many small hotels, allowing the staff to fully dedicate themselves to fewer guests and providing them with a thoroughly much more pleasurable experience compared to some of the larger hotels. The staff is always at your complete disposal at anytime of day or night, providing great information with a large knowledge base of Bologna's ins and outs. 

 

The thing that really separates this hotel from most others in Bologna is its attention to detail: the keys should be an attraction by themselves, beautiful flower shaped keychain that are arranged in a key-flower pot create a beautiful illusion.

 

The feeling of luxury that one feels when checking in to the big expensive rooms at the larger hotels can be found here even in their twin room.

Address
Via Orfeo 34/4

The bathrooms also offer great luxury, something that usually is put aside as not important in smaller hotels to make more room for more guests or larger sleeping areas. 

Overall the hotel is highly recommended from us, however as with all things that are great space is limited to the few rooms they have.

We highly recommend planning your trip around the availability of this wonderful hotel.
