First night in Bologna

After flights and airport stays, we (3 mid-30s friends) will be arriving in Bologna at 6pm on Sep 20th. We'd like somewhere comfortable and unique to stay for that first night before heading out on our Tuscan adventures. We will be picking up a car at the airport and I'd like suggestions for somewhere easy to get to for that night (though not generic airport hotel). Perhaps it is in Bologna or maybe another town/village nearby? Budget would be about 300E. Any help is very appreciated.

I think the best choice is Sheraton Bologna Airport which is modern and nice. Other cool hotels are in the very center which is not worth the effort cuz the airport is on the way to Tuscany already so you d make the same complicated trip twice in 12 hours. If you are not devastated from the trip you maky wanna try to reach Florence directly and that's not far at all. There you ll have plenty of choices

googlehead, you may want to look at either castel san pietro terme or sasso marconi as a destination for your first night.

Castel san pietro terme is a lovely old spa town and from there the next day you could see some of the lovely hills around Bologna as you make you way down to join the motorway for Florence and Tuscany.

I would tend to avoid the A1 which is the motorway from Bologna to Florence at the time of evening you will be arriving as it tends to get very very busy.

If you have any time to spare in Bologna, I suggest you eat at one of the local restaurants. Some of the most fabulous food ate in Europe, was in Bologna. Even the Chinese food was fabulous!!

Hotel Roma is small and sweet, is right behind Piazza Maggiore and they will let you keep a car.

I stayed there on my wedding night!

Sigle rooms are 90 euro per night.
