After flying and in transit for 12 hours, the reception at the hotel on Mother's Day was friendly and helpful. They reserved a table for a late lunch at a very good restaurant near the hotel and helped us with other info about the city during our two night stay.
The room was clean and bright, but the many spaces around the hotel to sit and talk/read made the stay memorable.
We ate in the hotel restaurant both nights and the food was excellent. As others have mentioned the service in the restaurant, both at breakfast and dinner, is attentive.

Just returned from a short break to Bologna and stayed at the Aemilia Hotel. It was excellent mainly on account of the very attentive and friendly staff, particularly Ahmed and Riccardo on reception and the ladies in the restaurant. The hotel is clean and quiet and the breakfast is very good.
Thoroughly recommended.

A very comfortable stay. Professional friendly staff at reception and breakfast, the hotel just has an air of being well run. Clean bright large bedrooms, very large bed, two threequarter beds together, immaculately clean bedclothes, usual equipment in the room, TV, couple of English news channels, wifi, toiletries in bathroom which has a nice large shower. Breakfast was really very good with a choice of cereals, hot and cold meats and eggs, fruits, a range of breads and cakes and tea and coffee, either coffee from the buffet or cappuccino or other specials on request, served always with a friendly smile. Nice views of the rooftops of Bologna from the roof of the hotel where there is a spa tub and a few sunbeds. The hotel is a flat 20 minutes walk to the centre of Bologna. The streets coming back after you cross the ‘ring road’ around the old city are not busy at all and could present concerns to people walking back late at night. We had no issues with this and if you needed a taxi would only be a few Euros. It was only E20 to the airport.

Arrived and was greeted like an old friend... fantastic rooms overlooking the old towers of the city. The room was clean, the bed enormous and I slept like a log! Breakfast was extremely good with fresh fruit and yoghurts,full cooked,cereals and continental meats and cheeses available.The staff were lovely and were incredibly helpful - always smiling and asking how our day was and what we thought of Bologna. I would definately stay there again. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 5th or 6th floor overlooking the two towers....

Arrived at the hotel and we were greeted warmly by the staff who were very pleasant. The room although a little small was clean and nicely decorated. There is a hot tub on the roof which is gorgeous to sit in in the sun. However it took about 40 minutes to get a drink when ordered but that was the worst thing that happened here. Breakfast in the morning was a great selection that set you up for the day. It was about a 10 - 15 minute walk from town and some nice eating places along the way. Would recommend it and would happy stay here again.

This hotel is on the outskirts of the old area of Bologna, it takes about 15 mins to walk into the centre. Our room was on the 5th floor overlooking the old town and the ancient towers. On arrival we were welcomed very warmly, which is always a god sign. The room was spacious, modern and very clean, with a large comfy bed. The bathroom was also contemporary and spacious. The breakfast was very good with lots of choice and very pleasant staff who were always at hand to serve fresh coffee and tea with a smile. They also have a very nice bar with a comfy outdoor area. We didn't have high expectations of Bologna and only went there to visit a business contact, but how wrong we were ! The old part of the city is beautiful with an interesting old market area, quaint squares and interesting architecture. We ate one evening in San Stefano piazza which was so atmospheric with a live jazz band playing in front of the ancient church, superb !
