FAQs about hotels in Bologna









A Gourmet Delight

World-class cuisine is what Bologna does best. Nowhere in Italy, a country with considerable culinary heritage, is the food considered better than in this medieval gem.

Bolognese sauce of course originated here, but to try the real thing look out for ragú on the menu. Cold meats and cheeses are also exquisite. Make sure you save plenty of time for eating – the Bolognese like to savour their food, so a meal can last for hours.

Many of the best eateries and homemade ice cream shops can be found behind the mile upon mile of porticoed streets, now UNESCO World Heritage listed. The complex of medieval churches and buildings in cobbled Piazza Santo Stefano is a tranquil spot to explore. Climb one of the Two Towers nearby (not the one leaning at a startling angle) for spectacular views over this red-roofed city.

The focal point of Bologna is huge Piazza Maggiore, whose Santo Petronio church has an unimpressive, half-finished façade that doesn’t prepare you for its sheer scale inside. Fanning out from this square are the buildings of Europe’s oldest university, founded in 1088 and home to the city’s best museums.

Bologna accommodation on Booking.com ranges from small B&Bs to luxury hotels, all easily accessible from Bologna Airport just outside the city.

    Bologna is steeped in history.

    Bologna is steeped in history. I recommend doing a guided walking tour and the San Luca express to the Basilica. The shopping was also pretty good. Bologna is also a sports city with Imola about half-hour away from Bologna (Emilia Romagna Formula One). The soccer stadium is also fairly close to the historic city centre. Bologna is a gastronomic delight - fresh Parmigiano Reggiano, aged to perfection. Fresh pasta, handmade. And the gelato!

    Bologna has a wonderful combination of architecture both old and new. We enjoyed the pace as compared to Rome and Florence. The people were welcoming, helpful, and lovely. We had secured and loved our cooking experience. What we did not enjoy was trying to secure a taxi when needed. We found the service unacceptable.

Nice decor, particularly the red chairs in dining area. Nice breakfast

    The hotel was 15 minutes walk from the station and located in the historic centre of Bologna within very easy reach of all the main sights. The rooms were simple but comfortable and the staff were particularly friendly and helpful. Everything was spotlessly clean. Free coffee and croissant provided at breakfast but if you wanted more the hotel is surrounded by good local eateries and supermarkets. We were up on the 5th floor with sensational views over Bologna’s red rooftops. It had air conditioning and a fan.

    Though mostly convenient for those arriving late or departing early from Bologna Airport, FlyOn Hotel is an overall superb choice for stay in the wider Bologna region, conveniently connected with a free 5-minute shuttle bus service to and from the airport. Elegant and spacious rooms, offering advanced amenities, in conjunction with superb breakfast and polite treatment from the staff. In all, a most notable experience, worthy of selecting without a second thought when traveling to or from Bologna by air.

The hotel is in a great location in central Bologna, with Piazza del Nettuno and the historic centre, shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. I parked at the nearby Parcheggio Piazza VIII Agosto which was easy. Breakfast was excellent with different options available.

    We booked a room for 4 people and we were upgraded to a very comfortable apartment just next to the central building of the hotel. The apartment was sparkling clean, spacious and modern. The breakfast was included in the price and it was really delicious. Great variety of sweet and savoury options. The location is very convenient. It is a 10 minute walk from the train station and at the same time at the centre of Bologna. We totally recommend it!!

    The atmosphere, the fact that it’s so modern, the staff, the parking (which is rare in Italy), the spotless and nice-smelling beadsheets and towels, the location ( close to highway so you can easily move around, and close to bus-stop so you can explore the city), the breakfast, the menu of the restaurant. We will definitely be back when we return to Bologna or when we go to other cities they have the same hotels.

    Spacious with aircon which is great during Italian summer :), small fridge is also a nice touch. Very close to the Bologna airport but hotel shuttle runs specific times only so check times carefully. Otherwise taxi is about Euro 15 for 5 min ride. Hotel orders taxi for you to get back to the airport and waiting time is less than 5 min.
