Our second stay, the first in 2009. Very positive experience both times.
Really helpful friendly owners and staff.
On the far side of the city centre to the train station, but therfore into a more normal neighbourhood.
About a 30 min walk from train, as rhe streets are flat, and as there are the covered walkways of Bolongia, often with marble floors, you can walk there under cover.
The centre of town was a 10 min strol, and there were great resturants nearby that the owners recommend (I thought the mad rooster one was my favorite -gallo matto i think, be sure to have the antipasta of the house) but Nello for authentic bolongese, Cand Co around the corner (tortellini in brodo was my favorite) and Merlot were all great.
The 6 km or so walk from the hotel up the hill under the covered portico to the church with the icon of st luke is worth the effort, if you are not nterested in the religious aspects the views are fantastic (including of the many other walkers if you do it on a sundy, watch for the fashions in exercise gear!)
It is easy to travel from the station to urrounding towns, my recommendation would be to go to Ravenna one day, if you dont have lunch you can catch a train about 1030, get to Ravenna by 12, see the mosaics and major sits on a walking tour, and catch the train back about 4pm. (a personal recommendation is to read the chapters in HV Mortons 1964 book 'A traveller in italy' on Ravenna, Bologna, Ferrara to more fully enjoy this)
