This place is weird. It's almost like a hoarder added decorative touches. There is stuff/decor everywhere that makes no sense. On top of that they mixed periods big time. For example in my room there is a super modern sconce next to classic curtains. My room stinks of a cheap air fresher and it's tiny by European and NYC standards.... More

Excellent location. Taxi €18-19 from airport (20mins max) 7 mins from train station - taxi €8-9 Sophie and Monica were fabulous in helping us get the best out of Bologna and help us book our train tickets for a day trip to Venice. Rooms are clean and very comfortable. Cannot recommend it enough.

We really enjoyed staying here. The entire staff was extremely friendly and welcoming, the breakfast was good, the location excellent. I look forward to staying there again someday. They were very helpful in recommending parking possibilities, altho it would have been easier without a car.

Since we live in Hawaii, the name honestly attracted me to take a look. This was our first trip through Bologna and spent three nights here. The owners are on duty 24 hours, and provide a great central location for the shopping, restaurants and sights of the city. Our room looked down on the narrow street below, with a great... More

Staff was unfailingly friendly and helpful. Quality of the breakfast was very good, if not lavish. I thought the location was perfect as it was convenient to both sights and the train station. Yet it was on a very quiet little street. I would absolutely stay there again.

The attention for the details is the main feature of this hotel: bedroom, bathroom and kitchen are rich of decorations, messages, small gifts, and useful stuff that you can usually find in elegant hotels (e.g. single use toothbrush and toothpaste, razor and aftershave, touristic guide etc). Perfect location: Hotel Paradise is sited in a side street of Indipendenza Avenue, which... More

We loved our experience at the Paradise. Our room wasn't quite ready when we arrived late morning, and so we were treated to a cappuccino while we waited. The room was spacious, including the bathroom! Everything was comfortable and very clean. The street was quiet but so well situated to everything we wanted to see and do. We would definitely... More

I chose this hotel after reading reviews on trip advisor. Centrally located, 3 mins from piazza maggiore. Rooms were clean and colourful, with a large ensuite bathroom. Staff was very friendly and even kept our luggage after check out. Decent breakfast, with some healthy choices available. Great value for money. I would recommend it to anyone who visits bologna.
