Reviewed June 7, 2010

We stayed in one of the (large) studio apartments down the alley from the hotel. Not much of a view, but the room was clean, quiet roomy and came with kitchenette and fridge. Easy access both to the train station (10 minutes) on foot, and the Piazza Magiorre (5 minutes). The staff at the Paradise are friendly, helpful and speak excellent English. We enjoyed our stay in Bologna very much, and will return.

This was a great find in Bologna after looking at Tripadvisor reviews. Euro 85 p.n. for roomy loft although shower was a bit small. Breakfast and Wifi included. Staff was very friendly and all spoke English. Location is along shopping street, 5 min. walk to center square.

Thanks to previous trip advisor reviews, we chose Paradise Hotel. We also chose apartment 406 based on another reviewer. This room was AMAZING - it's a loft apartment complete with wooden beams, kitchen, little lounge area, dvd player etc (bring your own dvds), and enormous bathroom complete with bathtub and separate shower. Location is super central and breakfast satifying. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We also took a peek at room 403 - smaller version of ours but also looked nice.

We stayed in the apartment across the street from the hotel, which was the roomiest lodgings of our 3 week trip--dining area, kitchen, sofa/TV area, desk, queen bed, and the biggest bathroom we've seen in Italy! Plus a nice view of the towers, and walking distance from everything. The breakfast was good too, with lots of selection and a cheery attitude (e.g. sugar packets with smiley faces). The staff was outstanding, making good restaurant suggestions and helping when my Italian was insufficient, plus they had a free laptop for the guests' use. We'd go back here in a heartbeat!

The best thing about the Hotel Paradise is the lovely staff. Marisa, the receptionist, is so friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. She arranged for my husband's shirts to be laundered, she printed off our boarding passes, gave us advice on where to go, and helped with my Italian language! The room itself was 'nowt to write home about' but was clean and comfortable, and the bathroom was perfectly adequate, although the shower cubicle was rather small. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who wanted a reasonably-priced city centre hotel. Only minus point was parking (almost impossible).

We have traveled Italy for 4 weeks in the last year, and this is truly one of the best values we have found. We rented an apartment, which was clean, spacious, quiet and very comfortable. The owner and staff at Paradise could not have been better. This hotel is in an excellent location in the old city near the main piazza. We had reserved for two nights and were so pleased, we stayed for four. If we return to Bologna, we would definitely stay again.

My wife Susan and I stayed at Paradise Hotel last week. I can recommend this hotel for several reasons. The location is ideal. We walked easily to and from the train station. It was very close to the opera house where we enjoyed an entertaining performance. It was also close to many restaurants and interesting sites. The breakfast was good and offered many choices. The staff was quite helpful in giving directions and making restaurant reservations. We were pleased.
