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 very friendly city with a laid back vibe and very safe....the general prices to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner were extremely reasonable which was a nice surprise! Make sure to get the little train up to San Luca, but do it on a good clear day as the views are amazing! We loved "Eataly" and "Roberto Bistrot" and try all the ice cream shops....Bellisimo!!

    Bologna is wonderful, plenty to do for a long weekend. It’s flat so easy to get around. The food (gelato, coffee, meats, pasta) is exceptional. It’s clean and reasonably safe with a great atmosphere. Not overwhelmed by tourists (yet). It’s a good base to travel to Florence (too many tourists), Pisa, Parma …

    Bologna is a very nice city to spend a few days. It is worth to mention that you ca easy access other city’s in the area with high speed train, like Firenze, Verona and Ravenna. Bologna has a good vibe, good shopping and meny good restaurants. If you are into high end shopping you will not be disappointed either.

    I liked the accomodation and the range of restaurants I could use. Try the pasta dish Grimigna! I was close to a shop where I could buy a daily bus ticket to meander through Bologna, and send postcards. I wished I had planned my trip better, although I found certain places accidentally, like the Two Towers. In particular, I never really found the bus and train stations! The advertised prices for tourist tours in season were over the top. Brochures, maps, bus guides etc would have been useful. I do not think that my host had private transport which would have been a boon, if he had thought to offer private tours! A very friendly family... Incidentally, there were several add-ons, like tourist tax, contents of the mini bar etc. But free coffee, regular cleaning, clean towels and plenty of other items like free toilet roll and free bathroom sachets. I found people very friendly and willing to let me practise my command of the Italian language on them; I even chatted with someone who knew the Italian Eurovision contestant to be in town! I felt reasonably safe, though was too good at getting lost! There were parks, gardens and countryside within easy distances. The room itself had no special view and could be noisy though was clean and efficient. There was free local wi fi. Bologna, la rossa, la grassa e la dotta.

    Bologna belongs to the most beautiful and friendly cities in the world. One of its biggest advantages is food – there is absolutely no risk that you will be disappointed, no matter which trattoria, pizzeria, osteria or gelateria you will choose. Everywhere the quality of the food is vey high. There are also splendid views and great, unique atmosphere. The Old Town is really worth seeing, you can walk there many times and you won't be bored.

    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.

    We are staying at this hotel for the second time. The first time was during the pandemic. It is much more relaxed now. We have been using Bologna as a gateway to other parts of Italy and this hotel is ideal for late of early flights to and from Bologna Airport. I managed to walk around a little bit and I saw that there was a commercial centre not far from the hotel. We also had a dinner at the restaurant and the food was amazing.

    I stayed at Hotel Emi the night before my flight out of the Bologna Airport. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly. They arranged a taxi for me for the morning which made getting to the airport very easy. Also the pizza I ate in the restaurant at Hotel Emi might be the best pizza I have ever eaten. It's called the "Best Selling" and I can see why. Stay here and eat here. You will enjoy it.

    The location to the hotel from the train station (Bologna Centrale) was an easy 10-12 minute walk. Additionally, the walk to the center of town was also very convenient. The breakfast was decent (hard boiled eggs vs scrambled but at least there was protein), and it had all the other breakfast essentials. The room size was just fine and it was nice and dark at night.
