Aemilia is a very decent hotel located only a short distance from the Bologna city Centre, and I can confirm that because my wife and I actually walked to the Centre in 20 mins. The strength of this establishment lies in the level of cleanliness and willingness of staff to help at all times; now that is a pleasant surprise... More

We arrived by car. So first thing to look for: good and safe parking, near (under) the hotel. Check! Then the reception, friendly and helpful. Check! Clean rooms, with all amenities. Check! And a room with a view on the two towers. Check! Hotel within walking distance (2 km) of the city centre. Check! Excellent bed, and quiet AC. Check!... More

We were on the 6th floor. Beautiful facility, great breakfast, everyone was so courteous. Loved it! We were a little nervous finding it, but it so convenient to the main part of town, and the restaurant recommendation from Vadym was SUPERB!

Lovely hotel just outside Bologna but in easy walking distance through the covered arcades of the city which are very welcome in the summer heat. The staff were very friendly and helpful, our bedroom was a good size and very clean with a view over the city of Bologna. The breakfast was excellent and we were able to use the... More

Our room on the 4th floor was well-appointed. The bed was large and comfortable. Air-conditioning was very quiet and efficient. The bathroom and bedroom were kept exceptionally clean. All staff in the hotel were very friendly and helpful, especially the breakfast staff. The breakfast was more than adequate and met all tastes.

This hotel is very nice. The rooms are modern. The dinner we take was very good and the staff was very friendly. When you have visited the town of Bologna, it is a fantastic place to rest there in the evening.

The hotel sits just 5 minutes' walk away from the city walls and has a large car park. There aren't many hotels in the actual centre and those which are in the town centre do not offer car parking facilities. In any case, trust me, you don't actually want to drive in bologna's town centre. As such if you have... More

We loved our stay at the Aemilia Hotel. We arrived in Bologna via plane & took the coach to Bologna centre. Unfortunately at the train / bus station we then got on to the wrong 36 bus (right bus number, but wrong direction), so we did end up going somewhat out of our way. A hot 30 min walk then... More

If you prefer a modern hotel or need a hotel outside of the ZTL, this is a great choice. About a 15 minute walk into the center of the city, but very manageable. Great breakfast buffet, quiet, spotless, great front desk. The only negatives were that the gym is tiny and doesn't even have free weights, and the air in... More
