Warm, cozy, close to the center, good services, always clean. Not a low price hotel but it's money well spent... Rich breakfast. For dinner and lunch you can easily reach the center. I love the huge beds!!!!!

We stayed here recently for 2 nights while visiting Bologna. It is very convenient being only about 20 minutes walk from the centre of the old city. Most importantly it has parking. The hotel is modern, clean and the rooms more than adequate although we found, like other reviewers, that the shower soaked most of the bathroom! The staff were... More

The staff was very nice and helpful. The double room we booked was spacious, with a huge bed and breakfast was really good. It will only take you 10 minutes to walk from the hotel to the first sights of beautiful Bologna. Also go to the rooftop to admire the city and its surroundings.

One of my favorite hotels in Bologna!!! Love everything there, especially the view from upstairs terrace!!! Hotel is a little bit far from city center, but it's so quiet & comfortable, that you may forget about everything!!!

We stayed at Aemilia Hotel this past week in Bologna. For the price, this hotel was excellent. The rooms were clean and nice, with a nice bathroom. The rooms are a little small by American standards, but it was really not an issue. The shower makes the bathroom a little wet, and the air conditioner was only ok. However, the... More

This hotel feels like a mix between business/boutique hotel. Everything is very clean and feels newly renovated. The roof terrace and hot tub is a great option for when you have had a day of walking around exploring Bologna, this for us was the main positive and made up for the longer walk to the centre. Breakfast was good apart... More

Good location close to city centre. Staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel had all the facilities you need. Note - I did not have any issues but my friend found the room to be warm (air con only goes to 20 degrees) and a little noisy.

Hotel has decent rooms, clean adequate bath. Parking is pay next door. It was August and the restaurant was closed for the month. The bar was pleasant and the very pleasant wait staff tried to fill in and did an adequate job considering they were working without a kitchen. It would have been nice to have been warned that the...
