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 a beautiful city, full of history, museums and lovely shops and places to eat and drink. We walked for miles and miles along the porticos which the city is famous for. There are many places you can visit from the city by coach or train. We had day trips by coach to Florence, and train journeys to Ravenna, Ferrara and Modena. Venice and Verona are further but still within reach for a day trip. We had a winter 14 day break, we enjoyed exploring at our own pace, eating fresh food at the apartment and eating out at other times.

    Although we stayed 3 nights which was perfect, we could have easily stayed longer as it was the most magical place to meander the streets and immerse yourself in it's wonderful food and culture. This is a MUST destination and a visit to the top of the tower in the square is well worth the climb (although it is very challenging climbing up the 100 year old ladder). It is an easy city to get around and the information center is incredibly helpful. The food is just amazing and if you so desire then cooking in your apartment is made easy by the abundance of fresh produce available at your doorstep. We as a family felt safe walking around at night. I cannot wait to return to this beautiful city that stole my heart.

    We had a great 3night/4 day stay in Bologna.

    We had a great 3night/4 day stay in Bologna. The Hotel Phi, where we stayed, was excellent. The staff were pleasant and helpful, breakfast was high in quality and the room was very comfortable. The city itself was a beautiful place to visit with the quirky portico system being particularly attractive. We took the walking tour and this was very informative and allowed us to get our bearings. Walking around the city centre was very pleasant and we were able to visit numerous cafes and bars. It lived up to its reputation as a food city. Both lunches and dinners were superb in all the eating places that we visited. The walk up to the basilica of San Luca, whilst challenging was a worthwhile experience, especially looking back on it. The views from the top were outstanding and the church was grand as were several others that we visited. T were all peaceful paces and were perfect for quiet reflection. A family situation made this particularly important for us. My wife and I have been on very many trips together and Bologna is amongst the very top few. There is much to recommend it

    Beautiful city with a beautiful vibe.

    Beautiful city with a beautiful vibe. Downtown you can find anything you need. Be careful if you are by car. There is a speed limit of 30km/h. Also be extra careful because there are bus lanes downtown and they are not so easily noticed and if you go through one you'll get a ticket.

    Bologna was a fantastic central location for us to travel on the train to Florence Venice and Verona. It was a 2 min walk to train station and 10 mins into centre which had a fantastic vibe at night in the bars and restaurants where all the staff were extremely friendly. The platters of cheese and mortadella with fabulous bread are a must with a glass of Sangiovese. Simoni down a side street off piazza maggiori was amazing.

    Our flight got canceled so we arrived way later than planned. We e-mailed the hotel and they responded promptly that they would be open and waiting for us. This was a welcome relief close to midnight. The staff was very, very friendly and accomodating. I love the comfort of the bed and bedding and my partner reveled in the amenities provided in the bathroom. Breakfast was probably the best we had in our entire Italian adventure. I'd highly recommend this hotel for a one-night stay (only 15 minutes or less from Bologna airport).

    This is a beautiful hotel in every way. The rooms are classical and comfortable and have everything you need. Each room has a it’s own decor theme. The breakfast is outstanding and one of the best I’ve had in Italy. The original art and sculpture all around the hotel is fascinating. The oil paintings in the breakfast room are so good they look like photographs. I would’ve bought one if I could afford it! Staff are professional, courteous and helpful. I will stay here again. It is also very central and convenient to all the sight.

    I was very impressed with the hotel. The location is excellent, just a short walk from Bologna centrale and the old city center. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the beds are very comfortable. The breakfast buffet is also good. The staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful. They were always happy to answer my questions and help me with anything I needed. Overall, I had a very positive experience at the Zanhotel Tre Vecchi, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good value hotel in Bologna.

    The rooms were clean, very comfortable, and the owner (Alessandro) was amazing. They went over and beyond to help make our stay enjoyable. I highly recommend Milleventi Apartments for anyone visiting downtown of Bologna. I have stayed at many of hotels/apartments but this was on the top of the list of best stays/experiences ever. Alessandro was very hospitable and there for every need of mine. He helped us find a taxi at 3:00 am. and then he contacted us if we were arriving at the airport. Alessandro thank you so much.

    Hotel is in an excellent location, 2 minute walk from the main train station. Travelling to other cities and to the airport was made very easy as the train station was so close. I found the area safe and quiet and walked back to the hotel every night when it was dark and had no issues. Staff were exceptional to deal with and not rude like I have found in some hotels in Italy. Hotel is very clean...calm, relaxed atmosphere in the lobby. Hot water for showering never ran out. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

    Just had 1 night here, but was happy with the stay. The room was large and spacious and the breakfast spread was varied, especially for Italian standards. There was an extra charge for fried eggs/bacon etc, however there were plenty of other great foods to enjoy that you don't feel like you needed them. Lots of restaurants in walking distance and took a bicycle to get into the centre of Bologna which was a great way to explore. Good parking in the hotel.

    Spotlessly clean, well organised and compact apartment in the centre of Bologna! Loved the location! The host met us earlier than check in, allowed us to unload our bags earlier and allowed us to park our car in the garage. We were also able to check out a little later after checking with the host. The €20/day parking charge was very reasonable. There was a lot of attention to detail from the host with little details adding a touch of luxury.

The hotel breakfast is pretty good, there are lots of delicious pastries and a pretty good selection of cold cuts, plus a hot dish. Room was clean and the fan came in handy.
