Hotel Paradise is in a great spot close to the city centre. It is just a short walk to the main square where all the action is. From the central station it is also close to the hotel and an easy walk with luggage on smooth paths through the covered porticos. It is in the first street in your left... More

This is a great small hotel. The rooms were clean, and large by Italian standards. The included breakfast is good, and everyone working the front desk was uniformly friendly and helpful. The location cannot be beat, as you are in a fairly quiet area but only less than 10 minutes from Piazza Maggiore. There are several excellent restaurants nearby, and... More

Stayed for 5 nights during the fair. I've got an apartment for 4 pax, managed by the hotel, just a few doors away from the hotel. Reasonably priced, considering its a peak period, good location, breakfast was great, beyond my expectation. Super helpful and friendly staff..throw them any question ... they will find solutions. Location is a bit chatter noises... More

I stay in this hotel whenever I visit Bologna. It is just a short walk from the main railway station and a very short distance from the city centre. In spite of its central location, it is amazingly quiet. The rooms are comfortable and clean, though sometimes (especially the bathrooms) a little cramped. The staff are friendly and cheerful and...

Pro: Location, friendly staff, Contra: Very small singular rooms withe miniature beds (some very dark too), old carpets with stains etc., good cappuccino but otherwise I didn't like the breakfast at all (e.g. on the second day there was not even fresh bread, cheese and ham were sweaty, sorry)

My husband and I stayed here when our son was studying in Bologna and found it to be basic, but very comfortable. The desk people were welcoming and friendly and the breakfasts were delicious. Conveniently located to the central area.

We stayed at the Hotel Paradise as a group of three friends and originally booked a triple room but were upgraded on arrival to a suite. The suites are in a block across the street from the main hotel. The room itself was superb - the beds were comfy, the room was spacious, the bathroom was clean, there was lots... More

What a dump!!! Nice people but crappy hotel.It was the worst hotel I stayed at in 5 weeks of Italy. It does not deserve the trip advisor rating (14) it got. It galled me to see all the trip advisor certificates by the shabby elevator. The air conditioner in my room barely worked. During the day I had to take... More

We had a quick stayed in Bologna for two days in early June. This sweet little hotel is in an excellent position about 2\3 of the way from the station to the main piazza so it’s an easy walk even with luggage. It’s about 5 to 10 minutes walk to the centre. The wonderful staff were always very friendly and... More

We've stayed twice at the Paradise, and we enjoyed it both trips. It's about a ten or fifteen minute walk from the train station, so it's an easy walk if you travel light. It's located on a small side street, so if you're not familiar with the location it's good to have a map or use your phone's map app... More
