If you need to feel like Home and well taken of , this is what you need to Book. HOTEL PARADISE is located in the heart of the city. Most places are 10 to 15mins away. We have booked a standard room and the management sent us an email asking if we would like to upgrade to a studio and... More

No complaints here at all. Hotel Paradise is very pleasant -- modern, clean, polite English speaking staff. All the expected amenities and a comfortable bed for a very fair price. The location is on a tiny side street just a couple of short blocks from the main drag -- so it's quiet, but convenient to the tourist sites, services, and... More

This hotel is a bit of a contradiction. I need to be honest and say we were quite disappointed on first impressions. It's very central but down a side street that feels a bit rundown/seedy. The hotel itself and décor are VERY dated. Don't expect a modern hotel or even slightly modern!! Our room was tiny - more like a... More

Stayed 3 nights in October as a couple. Hotel has 24 hour reception which was handy due to late arrival. Friendly and helpful staff which gave a family feel to the place. Ideally located - right in the heart of Bologna so within easy walking distance of all things central. Rooms had all the basics if a little bit small:... More

Hotel Paradise is tucked away in the back streets so really peaceful, but only a couple of minutes walk from the main shopping and sight-seeing area. Lovely room (306) bigger than an average single, which was nice. Comfy bed, neat en suite, good breakfast and absolutely delightful staff (all speaking good English). Wifi in room not good but absolutely fine... More

Stayed for 3 nights. What a lovely, friendly hotel located very close to the city centre. The staff were very helpful giving lots of tips of where to go. Rooms were basic but comfortable and clean. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice, cereals, pasties, meat, cheese etc. Would stay here again.

Stayed in a single room for 1 night during business travel. The hotel is very convenient for walking around central Bologna. The hotel is clean, comfortable, and simple but nice.

We just stayed for 5 nights at this central Bologna hotel and wouldn't hesitate returning. Comfortable, clean room, large bed, good choice at breakfast, well located and staff so cheerful, helpful and friendly. We made a good choice staying here and Bologna is a delightful, vibrant city well worth a visit.
