AEMILIA HOTEL is a modern 4-star hotel, with a refined and elegant design, completely renovated in 2021 and located on the outskirts of the historic center of Bologna. The strategic location of the structure makes AEMILIA HOTEL the perfect choice for both leisure and business customers: one step away from the Sant'Orsola Hospital and the historic center, but outside the traffic-restricted area, 20 minutes by car from the Marconi Airport and just 5 minutes from the ring road and Bologna central train station. The hotel underwent a general refurbishment in January 2021, with a meticulous restyling of the common areas, hall, restaurant, bar and lounges. The rooms have been completely renovated in a modern and elegant style and designed to ensure high levels of comfort and practicality. Welcoming, spacious and equipped with ultra-fast Wi-Fi connection with 1000 Mbps band, the Aemilia Hotel is the ideal solution for the client on a business trip or for the tourist who wants to visit the city. Inside the Hotel, our Gurmè Restaurant is ready to welcome customers every day in its exclusive and finely renovated setting, with "a la carte" service and buffet breakfast. The structure is also equipped with a private garage, a modern and well-equipped Congress Center, a welcoming lounge bar, two terraces, one of which with a splendid view over the rooftops of the city. The great attention paid to customer care and the excellent quality of the product, make Aemilia Hotel the first hotel in Bologna on the absolute ranking of Tripadvisor.

Our rules in choosing a hotel the room should be better than our room at home. Dear Aemilia Hotel, I can’t thank you enough for making our stay in Bologna very memorable and comfortable. I highly recommend this property for a very very very clean, comfortable, spotless, smells really good. I’m really speechless as soon as I entered the room. The guy at the reception named Mattol (not really sure if i spelt it correctly) as soon as we arrived in our room he called straight away to check if everything is okay, if we need more assistance. This is the kind of person we need in the hospitality industry and the other guy too guiding my husband with the provided map which way going to the centre. The breakfast place is so cozy, clean and has a variety of optiions… keep it up team! 😍😍😍

Staff: very friendly and welcoming Room: Although renovation efforts have been made, still some weaknesses in the bathroom. The bed was comfortable and new. The heating with the AC was not sufficient and the room was quite cold. Traffic noises due to missing window isolation. Parking was ok.

After looking at many hotels, we chose Aemilia Hotel based on reviews, parking and location. We booked a superior room with a king bed that was a single mattress rather than two singles and was very comfortable. We slept well with good A/C and comfortable pillows – fantastic! Parking was easy in the parkade next door. Staff are welcoming, helpful and very eager to assist. We were given a room ahead of check in – thank you so very much! Our room was spacious and had space for 2 pieces of luggage– I wish all hotel rooms would think of this! The room was very clean, housekeeping was great. A nice bathroom, fantastic lighting!! There were amenities such as slippers, robes, Kleenex, etc., and a personal safe in a drawer. Hotel location was an easy walk to the historic center. Breakfast was 8.00 Euro p.p. and it was great value and excellent – looked forward to breakfast each morning. The only improvement the hotel could make would be the Wi Fi signal in the rooms. An easy upgrade. If we returned to Bologna on a future trip, I can’t see why we would look further - Aemilia Hotel would be our choice.

Flight delay from hell on American Airlines made us a day and more than a half late. Front desk very helpful at 2:30 am resulted in a lovely but shortened stay. Very nice breakfast and a great rate to boot.

Being travel agents we are lucky enough to travel to many parts of the world. Many times service is good. At the Aemilia the reception by Davide was one of the most welcoming we have ever received. Davide warmly welcomed us, gave a run down of the hotel, and then asked if we wanted any information about Bologna. Of course we said we would like a recommendation for a good pizza location. He came around the counter, gave us a map and marked the best options for pizza and a few other services. We scheduled a taxi for a very early pick up and then he said he was glad we were there and if we needed anything to call. Excellent job and the pizza was great!! Couple amazing service with a huge room that was spotless and you have all you could want! Highly recommend!!

I had two stays at this hotel in the past few weeks. Both stays were excellent. I was taking an extended vacation (while doing some work) and welcomed the spacious rooms (with desk), upper terrace and bar terrace to get some of my work done. Despite advertising a beefy Internet infrastructure, I did find that sometimes my Internet was fairly slow. The staff was extremely accommodating and friendly, beds and towels awesome and a Gym (!!!) as well as bacon at breakfast (!!!) greatly appreciated. The biggest surprise was the hotel restaurant, Gurmé, which had the best hotel food I've ever had. Better than many top-rated restaurants in Bologna (which is saying something). I look forward to returning in the future.

It is a great hotel with new, high quality rooms. Everything worked, including the A/C. This is often not the case at hotels so it was a joy to have A/C that we could control. The bathroom was luxurious and we loved the marble and stone materials. We loved the roof top terrace and the view of the old city. No need to climb up one of the old towers to get a good view. Breakfast was wonderful, which offered a lot of variety. The cost was 7.27 euros for the ‘all you can eat buffet’, with great food. In New York City, a glass of orange juice would have cost as much as the entire Aemilia Hotel full buffet. A huge value. We would reserve a room here if we ever come back to Bologna.

Our 2nd time at the Aemilia and it is still the best hotel in Bologna. A gap of 5 years had past and I must say it was like coming back to stay with friends. Our room had a fantastic view of the city rooftops, it was more than comfortable. Bed excellent, bathroom excellent. Breakfast excellent. The city is a must to explore, always something going on. Excellent shopping, fantastic restaurants and of course Mortadella Lab. We will return in 2023.
