Royal Hotel Carlton, hotel in Bologna

Just 984 feet from Bologna Train Station, the Royal Carlton offers elegant rooms with flat-screen satellite TV. The on-site Monrif SPA Clarins features saunas, Turkish baths, and wellness treatments.

It’s about a 5 minute walk to the train station, and about 10 minute walk into the main piazza. The facilities are beautiful, the room was so clean and smelled really fresh. The breakfast is plentiful and so many options to choose from. The staff was very friendly, and we felt really comfortable throughout our stay.

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 to be better than in this medieval gem.

Bolognese sauce of course originated here, but to try the real thing look 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 savor their food, so a meal can last for hours.

Many of the best eateries and homemade ice cream shops are found behind the mile upon mile of porticoed streets, now UNESCO World Heritage sites. 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 of this red-roof 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, the buildings of Europe’s oldest university, founded in 1088, are home to the city’s best museums.

Bologna accommodations at Booking.com range 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.

    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.

    Perfect location close to city centre- 5 minutes walk to best places of Bologna. I liked opening the door by code- it was really easy. Our host was very kind and even gave us tips where to eat and how to get cheaper to airport (use taxi for 2 and more instead of Marconi express). Apartment was clean with shower gel and basic dishes.

    Location was good, close to the train station (8min walk) and there’s a train directly to the airport that’s less than 10 mins. Apartment was spacious, clean and good value for money. It was about 15 mins walk to Bologna main square. There was a nice restaurant across from the hotel with good pizza and pasta.

    Convenient to the airport. Helpful advice from staff to get into Bologna centre; they ordered us a taxi (17 euros). Best way to get to the hotel from the airport is to get a taxi AT the airport (12 euros), rather than their airport shuttle.
