Very nice hotel with good and secure parking. It is outside ztl so you can easily acess it with your car. Very friendly employees. Breakfast was amazing, a lot of variety, including cornflakes, jams, eggs, bacon and fresh bread.

My wife and I stayed at the Aemilia Hotel, which is an excellent hotel and only a fifteen minute walk to the super centre of Bologna, for five nights commencing on February 10th of this year. We caught the number 36 bus at a stop directly across the road from the railway station and got off at a stop named... More

This was our second stay at this property. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the Central Train Station in Bologna. The rooms are spacious, the rooftop terrace and included breakfast are top notch and the staff exceptional. If you are arriving by plane you can take a shuttle to the train station where you can board a... More

Perfect hotel with a very short (10 minutes walk) distance to the breathtaking centre of Bologna. We stayed too short (4 days) to see all Bologna has to offer, but everything is reachable by foot from this hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. We had a room with a nice view over the city. We'll definately stay at... More

Aemilia Hotel is a 10 minute walk from the centre of Bologna. It is a modern property with well appointed rooms and and facilities. It is immaculately clean and offers one of the best hotel breakfasts that I have ever had. (If it served fresh juices, it would be the best hotel breakfast I have ever had!) Probably more geared...

I don't normally award 5 starts to a hotel, unless they're top notch, luxury hotels but this hotel is very worthy of a very solid 4 stars on the basis of value, service and comfort. It's hard to find nice, modern hotels in Italy, so I'm happy to recommend the Aemelia. Location: Before I booked this hotel, I read a... More

Furnitures are simple and i guess that the best part of the room was the shower which is really nice. The bed was very big but piloows were too... More

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
