I've stayed here every year since the Marca Bologna show began. This hotels is one of the reasons why I love Bologna as much as I do. The staff is polite, professional and friendly. The location is easy to navigate both parking and the city center. The rooms are immaculate and well designed, housekeeping is efficient and also friendly. I... More

Great Hotel from every aspect. Ahmed at the front desk is all about making his customer's happy. Daniella at the bar/lounge area is so delightful you can't go a night with dropping by to grab a drink. Filipa and Rafael will take good care of you if you eat dinner at the hotel's restaurant. The rest of the staff we... More

Great staff, great breakfast, great rooms! Not expecting such a pleasant experience. Rooms are very well furnished and modern. It has a large parking lot and it's 15 min walking distance from the main square! Another great aspects are the young people working there being very polite and they all spoke English ! I'd definitely go back if in Bologna.

My room was a single with a huge king size bed and enormous walk in bathroom and shower. I was greeted by heated towels in the bathroom and you got to love a adjustable temperature bidet. There is a coffee machine that works all day in the bar area. Little snacks and sandwiches as well. The staff did everything you... More

My family and I staid at the Aemilia for 4 nights. the rooms have a good size, are clean and withthout moquette. The breakfast Is ok and the price we paid was reasonable. The only downside is that the restaurant was closed and the first night when we arrived we had to have dinner outside. We will go again!

Clearly recommend!! Friendly staff, excellent breakfast, Nice room with huge bed, nice view. In summer one can lay on the roof garden with jacuzzi, admiring the city towers. 15 min of walk to the city center, no need for car or bus.

This is an excellent hotel that will enhance your stay in Bologna. Immaculate, spacious rooms and common areas and helpful staff, plus off street parking (12 E) make this a great base for exploring. It is a little difficult to find with out a GPS, but we made it and were glad we did. Restaurant is OK , convenient, and... More

Modern hotel with comfortable spacious rooms and big bathroom. Oversized beds. Located 10 to 15 min walk from center of town. Good for exploring the city but also for business meetings. Standard breakfast. Parking is within the building at 12 Eu/day.

The Aemilia provides everything it promises - comfort, ease, good service and high standards. If you're looking for classic architecture or atmosphere then Aemila may disappoint, but if you need a base for travelling, exploring and relaxing then this hotel is perfect. Drinks on the roof as the sun goes down is fab. Thanks everyone for a comfortable stay.
