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.

    The people of Bolognia were really friendly, loads to do and see with an outdoor cinema when we were there. I would however advise taking the train up to San Luca (small tourist train) as it was a bit of a climb up. Food was amazing, just wish we stayed longer.

    It's a great idea to use the public transport - buses, it's cheap – you dont pay more than 6 euros for 24 hours and you buy the ticket in bus just with your visa card! Next time I'll try renting a bike because there are lots of people cycling and it doesn't seem too dangerous.

    Large sized room with lovely big windows, air conditioning worked beautifully. The breakfast had a selection of croissants, pastries, tarts and everything else. The staff were friendly and spoke enough English to get by. The price is a little more than average for a B&B but you definitely get what you pay for and feel rather pampered. The walk into central Bologna was not far. I would also recommend the Pizza shop, diagonally opposite the coop and on the same road, which does fantastic food at the cheapest prices I've seen in Italy.

Property was beautiful, spotlessly clean and it had everything one can wish for in a 5* hotel. Seriously, I was so happy I have booked this property and once I return, I sure will come back here. Simply wow!!!! And big thanks goes to its owner!!

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.

The location is good: a short taxi ride from the airport, an easy bus ride into the centre of Bologna, set in leafy surroundings. The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was a feast, served a short walk away, in the Savoia Regency Hotel.

The owner/manager is very kind and helped us with whatever we needed (late check-in, restaurant and taxi reservation). Breakfast is very good, with fruits, cheese, ham, pastries, eggs on demand, everything really fresh. Bed is very comfortable. Can definitely be recommended.

    Although the hotel is literally located at the end of the urban Bologna, bus 25 last stop is in front of the hotel and one will be downtown in 15 minutes. The hotel is affordable, rooms are cleaned daily, and breakfast is abundant for Italian 3*. The staff is kind. The airport is nearby - a 7-8 minutes taxi ride which is cheaper than Marconi express.
