FlyOn Hotel & Conference Center, hotel in Bologna

FlyOn Hotel & Conference Center is surrounded by private gardens, and features a fitness centre and free parking. Bologna Marconi Airport is just 1.5 km away.

The hotel is conveniently located like 5 min drive from airport wich is why I booked. The shuttle is very good. Is important to understand this is the only purpose for staying here, in my opinion, for the location if you need to be close to the airport. It is not close to any shops restaurants etc in a walking distance but its like 15minute taxi ride to the center so this is good and not a mayor inconvenience. Also inside the hotel theres a restaurant and bar so we decided to stay and just rest before our flight. The food was good but you have to wait a bit cause the hotel is massive and the current dining area is small at the moment (I understand they are renovating a bigger area) so take this into account if youd like to have food here, go asap to the waitlist. Rooms are just perfect, big, clean confortable. The hotel is a bit vintage looking but nothing unpleasant all very organized and clean. This was a perfect stay for me to be honest and I dont understand the bad reviews. Not all hotels need to be perfectly modern and renovated to be good and convenient. Staff was nice and efficient.

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.

    We only visited Bologna in one day as a stopover on the way south. The city center is pleasant to visit even on hot days and easy to get around on foot. The bibliotheca on the main square is a freely accessible shelter from heat and is a beautiful place to take a short break.

    Whilst not as 'pretty' as other Italian towns/cities (we were in Tuscany before visiting Bologna), the architecture and general ambiance was typically Italian and as an university city, the general vibe was bright and bustling. That said, the portico's, for which Bologna is rightfully famed, were extensive and very beautiful and although we chose to use the tourist train, the 3.8km portico to the basilica San Luca was particularly good. Bologna also boasts the leaningest (if that's a word) of Italy's leaning towers - the Garisenda tower. Bologna's tour de force is its food - there were bars, cafes, gelateria's and restaurants everywhere and, in our experience, the food was spectacular - especially La Prosciutteria in Via Guglielmo Oberdan. If you're staying for a while and self-catering, you cannot beat the fresh produce in their markets. Plentiful choice, and in the case of the grocery market, huge and juicy fruits and vegetables. A perfect location for a quick city break or base for a tour of the region. We will definitely return

    It may not have the fame of Florence or Venice (each less than 2 hours away), but it has a unique atmosphere of its own, with UNESCO registered loggias, taller medieval towers than San Gimignano, and many Romanesque Gothic and Baroque buildings filled with art by the local Carracci family and even Giotto, Titian, Raphael etc. It is also an excellent 4-5 days base for daytrips to the mosaics of Ravenna, to Ferrara and San Marino, with many restaurants offering the rightfully famous Cucina Bolognese.

    Bologna was part of a tour in northern side of Italy. I only reserved one day for it - I could have stayed one day more, because this is really a nice city. If you want really good Ice Cream (gellato) - then visit Gianni's (near to the towers) - I had there the best ice cream.

    Bologna is a classic "second-tier" city - it has fewer "must-see" sites but it is also much less overrun with tourists. It's easy to feel that you are part of an actual city with real inhabitants, and at less cost than the "top-tier" destinations. Also, it's a very easy 1:05 train ride to Milan and even Venice is within an easy commute. And the food! Amazing. If you've been to Italy before or you want to feel like you are something more than a tourist, Bologna is a great option.

    Excellent location, about 15 minutes from the train station (very easy to find) and about 10 minutes into the centre. The hotel was clean and quiet. There is a lift, plugs next to the bed and toiletries provided. There are vending machines for hot drinks & snacks. My room was basic - no TV, there was a fridge & hairdryer provided, 2 huge windows so it was nice and bright. The staff, particularly Antonella (I think this is her name!) are fantastic - friendly, welcoming, helpful. I would definitely stay here again if I was in Bologna.

The breakfast was diverse, with perfect coffee, fruit, croissant, cereals, etc, whatever you needed. The hotel is spacious, nota your typical small hotel room. The staff was friendly and helpful. My trip to Bologna was the last stay în Italy after Rome and Florence and I was not disappointed.
