This hotel was very reasonable priced for European standards (around 75 EUR) so one cannot expect a lot, but everything was definitely OK for the price. The rooms and bathroom were very small, even by European standards. Those with a lot of luggage may struggle to store it in the room! Breakfast was not great. That being said, the rooms... More

This hotel is cheap and clean but the rooms are very small even by European standards. The bathrooms are especially tiny. Large people may have difficulty squeezing past the basin into the shower. Front office staff were friendly and helpful. Had some good suggestions for places to eat at. The breakfast was adequate but not expansive and not really what... More

We stayed in an apartment at the Hotel Paradise in December. The apartment was large, very clean & modern, really couldn't fault it. Also had breakfast at the hotel; had a varied self-selection buffet which would offer something for everyone. The staff were friendly & helpful (plus they could speak good English!). The location was perfect, near everything but also... More

Wasnt sure about choice of hotel after reading a negative report and driving thru graffiti daubed narrow streets but still it was very reasonably priced. Could not have been more wrong. The welcome was enthusiastic and the room large (204). Large and comfortable bed and yes some quaint attempts at humour/nostalgia. Yes there was a bar opposite and I suppose... More

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.
