Aemilia hotel in Bologna well deserves its ranking in Tripadvisor; I can't help but confirming the general very good feeling, the cleanliness and the extreme kindness of hotel personnel reported by previous reviewers. I spent there two days with my young daughter and my wife, who attended there a conference. Arriving there, we parked in the hotel garage (10€ a... More

Hotel Aemilia in Bologna is ideal. Just a short walk to Centro, with none of the congestion, with on site parking. The hotel itself is very nice--large, comfortable rooms and ample amenities. Most notable is the staff. Everyone was very friendly and most helpful, willing to spend time with each guest as needed.

Modern hotel with great service and very helpful. Slightly outside the main area but 10 minutes walk and you're there, worth it for the roof garden and very quiet at night They also recommended some great restaurants

This hotel was recommended to me by a friend and I didn't regret it. Let's start with the only downside, for me at least. The hotel is outside of the 'circolare', the city ring road. But a 20 min walk or a 5 min walk to a nearby bus stop does the trick. (public transport is btw top notch here).... More

Location: in a residential area slightly outside the city walls: it's a five to ten minute walk to the city walls and another ten minutes into the city centre. Great if it's good weather and you like to walk off your lunches/dinners, but less so otherwise. Rooms: decent, minimalist, but nothing specifically to write home about. Those facing west do...

(apart from the weather, but hey ... ) We were in Bologna for the annual Children's Book Fair, and Aemilia was the perfect base. Good central location, reasonable rates, large room with a giant-size bed, free wifi that works (unlike many hotels), free fair shuttle bus -- and the best breakfast of any Italian hotel we've ever stayed in.

We used the hotel for the second time for our Bologna Book Fair trip. The hotel is clean, modern, very minimal in design, with an excellent Breakfast buffet and free wi-fi and shuttle bus to the fair. What else can you ask for? I definitely recommend and will use the hotel again!

I spent one night in a special room congaining cartoons by Linier (an artist from Argentina, says receptionist). This was very nice but it would be better if they inform the customer at reception desk. Because not everyone may like such atmosphere. Hotel is not located in the historical center but within 15-20 minutes walking distance to Plazza Maggiore. (By... More
