I stayed at the Paradise Hotel for one night on a trip from Florence to Bologna. I was immediately made welcome by the friendliest hotel staff I have ever encountered in Italy or anywhere else. They could not have been nicer as they checked me in and even allowed me to get into my room before official check-in time, as... More

I've just visited Paradise Hotel for the second time and it was once again a great experience. Rooms are good sized and clean and I was happy to notice the breakfast choice has been improved. Staff couldn't be friendlier and more accommodating, just like the city itself! I highly recommend this little hotel in the heart of the city not... More

Hotel Paradise is tucked down a narrow road, close to popular Via Dell’ Indipendenza, which runs from Piazza VIII Agusto to Piazza Maggiore. The hotel is about 15 minute from the train station and some 10 minutes from Piazza Maggiore. It is also a good location for a variety of small trattorias. Hotel Paradise is on the corner of Via...

Great location--easy walking distance halfway between train station and center of beautiful old Bologna. One block off the main pedestrian street. Super friendly staff. Updated spacious rooms. The shower was tiny, but the breakfast was good and plentiful. We really enjoyed our 3 night stay. Bologna was a treat. Lots to see and incredible food.

Very reasonably priced. The staff were tremendously: cheerful, helpful, and very fluent in English. Location right next to main shopping and walking thoroughfare. I had the best night's sleep in Italy at this hotel, in part because it was quiet, but also because of the comfortable bed and nice pillows.

My husband and I stayed here a couple weeks ago and really liked it. We were pleasantly surprised by upgrade when we checked in, and ended up having a full apartment to ourselves. It was extremely spacious, nicely decorated, and clean. The staff was also very welcoming and friendly. The only minor thing I noticed was there seemed to have... More

Good value and in a convenient location between the historic centre and train station. Staff friendly and helpful and the room was spotlessly clean. The breakfast selection was broad. I would book again on a future visit to the city.

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
