We stayed 2 nights at the Una Hotel in Bologna, using it as a stopover between Tuscany and Venice.
We chose this location because it was right across from the train station, and our rental car return return location (Hertz) was less than a block away. I'm so glad we found this hotel!
The hotel is about a 10-minute walk from the center of Bologna, which is a very pleasant stroll through the beautiful porticoes.
They did charge for Wi-Fi, which seems odd in this day and age.
We had a fantastic room (Room 607) which was of the Superior room category. After sleeping 4 nights in a old Tuscan villa with 2 pushed-together twin beds to make a King bed, sleeping on a new, proper mattress was heavenly! The room had blissfully cold A/C, lots of electronic gadgets to play with, and a nice little desk area with pocket doors. The soaking tub was one of the deepest I've ever seen.
The breakfast was okay, with typical continental breakfast fare (pastries, scrambled eggs, cheese and meat, etc.)
However, the hotel itself was ultra-modern, with very cool design throughout. What a great choice for a stay in Bologna.
We did have a rental car and the parking garage was accessed through an insanely tight squeeze where you drive between two really narrow columns, through the portico, and down into the garage. Navigating inside the garage is truly a heroic feat. We're lucky we made it out without any damage to our car!
The highlight for us was stumbling upon an amazing restaurant just around the corner from the hotel, which was so good we returned twice. If you're staying at Una, do yourself a treat and walk around the corner to Il Piccolo Gambero.
