A modern hotel located about 20 minutes walk from the city centre, it is spotlessly clean, comfortable and run by friendly, efficient staff. It is perhaps more of a business hotel than a tourist one, but really the location is the only downside. We had good weather and the walk was not an issue, but if it were cold and... More

IT personnel not savvy troubleshooters. Took a long time to convince the that their network needed to be reset. They kept telling me that my machine is to blame, and and "many others" are experiencing no difficulties. Has one phone by the bed. Needs one on the desk. Instruction for use of phone are in tiny print on the handle.... More

We have just stayed for our first night in this hotel whilst spending 2 days in Bologna with Friends. Great night sleep, comfy beds and room very nice, clean and modern. Nice to also have the option of a magnifying mirror in the bathroom - something more hotels should think about!! Breakfast was superb and the restaurant was clean, airy... More

Great hotel, nicely situated close to the city centre. Rooms are very clean with great beds, my room also had a fantastic view on the old city. The staff is helpful and very friendly, the breakfast is lovely. I would definitely return here and recommend it highly.

We've stayed in this hotel in Bologna twice and will definitely always use it when we go back to Bologna. It's a great hotel for families, the beds are huge and could fit a family of four, literally! The staff are all so friendly and nothing is a problem for them. It's always spotlessly clean, the breakfast is really good... More

This hotel is a short walk to the city center, but was perfect for my stay since I needed to park a car (12 Euros a day.) The rooms are fantastic and the breakfast is awesome! Very friendly staff and strong, hot shower. Ate dinner one evening in the restaurant and would recommend as well. Will definitely return!

A comfortable hotel although the location is a bit too far from the centre for my preference. The walk is interesting but it is a bit of a hassle to have to take that walk twice a day. Breakfast is good although not outstanding. The room was comfortable. If it was not for the location, I would stay here again.... More

Our stay at Aemilia Hotel was extremely enjoyable. Having a drink or coffee on the patio by the bar or viewing the city and country side from the roof top patio were nice breaks from the noise of the city. The restaurant service and food was excellent. The second floor restaurant looks onto a green space with large trees and... More

We spent three nights at the hotel. Great hotel in a quiet area. Great buffet breakfast not usual in Italy. We decided to try the Hotel's restaurant for dinner and were not dissapointed. Staff extremely helpful and efficient. Wifi not very stable. Would definately recommend this hotel.

Beautiful hotel, very well kept. Nice rooms, high quality fascilities and bathroom. Clean. Safe on the room. Good breakfast. Attentive people in the reception. Conference rooms with not so attentive techs, and worst of all: internett went down, and we did not get the message before having spent considerable time getting up. One day without!
