We would like to have a relaxing sun holiday in a reasonably priced hotel with a pool and good food. We like to walk and use public transport.

Thanks for your help

Try Savoia Regency Hotel,

not in a breathtaking location, but there's the pool, one of the best restaurant in town and a bus stop at 200m (15 mins to the centre)

It's quite difficult to find a swimming pool in Bologna, at least in central hotels, but I would rather not to have it than staying a lot outside the centre (15 min. bus means a lot outside the centre and in an area with almost nothing around just next to the tangenziale), so you'll be always obliged to take a bus or a taxi to reach anything; while in May it is very nice just to go out and walk in ancient streets of the centre after a dinner in a typical trattoria.

try Ischia. Most of the pools in Ischia are heated by the volcano under the island. At Maronti beach on Ischia there is a beautiful sand beach heated from beneath by the volcano also.

The Touring Hotel in the center has a rooftop Jacuzzi as well as an rooftop terrace, perfect for enjoying your own picnic or bottle of wine. If the weather permits you could sunbathe but the added advantage is like Silvia says, to be able to take a quick stroll in and around the city in the evening. There is also a large park nearby, perfect for rollerblading, jogging, walking or even sunbathing: Giardini Margherita

FYI, its not supposed to be dangerous but its probably a good idea to not go by yourself.
