Great hotel, with great value for what you pay for. It is outside the city center, however it is very quiet at night. The room is clean and comfortable, the breakfast was good, and at the lounge they serve awesome cocktails. Nearby there is a small shopping center with supermarket and drug store.

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.

    Bologna is steeped in history.

    Bologna is steeped in history. I recommend doing a guided walking tour and the San Luca express to the Basilica. The shopping was also pretty good. Bologna is also a sports city with Imola about half-hour away from Bologna (Emilia Romagna Formula One). The soccer stadium is also fairly close to the historic city centre. Bologna is a gastronomic delight - fresh Parmigiano Reggiano, aged to perfection. Fresh pasta, handmade. And the gelato!

    Bologna has a wonderful combination of architecture both old and new. We enjoyed the pace as compared to Rome and Florence. The people were welcoming, helpful, and lovely. We had secured and loved our cooking experience. What we did not enjoy was trying to secure a taxi when needed. We found the service unacceptable.

    A little gem in the heart of Bologna! Staff excellent, property was fabulous, room very clean and a decent size for one person with a king bed. Breakfast included, the night I was going to eat in at the property restaurant it was closed for a private function. So the front desk staff made a suggestion to call a local restaurant who would deliver and within 30mins, I had a hot meal in my room! Also had a private massage in my room and a private car to the airport all arranged by this hotel and staff. Would highly recommend this hotel!

    The Hotel is a gem. It is the classic 5 stars / luxury hotel you can find in the typical art/history cities in Italy. Location could not be better and the staff is a joy to interact with: kind, vibrant and helpful. The room was immaculate and the bed very comfortable to sleep in. Make sure to have lunch or dinner at their restaurant, which is also one of the best restaurants in town, offering a modern take on some of the typical recipes of the regional cuisine.

    The atmosphere, the fact that it’s so modern, the staff, the parking (which is rare in Italy), the spotless and nice-smelling beadsheets and towels, the location ( close to highway so you can easily move around, and close to bus-stop so you can explore the city), the breakfast, the menu of the restaurant. We will definitely be back when we return to Bologna or when we go to other cities they have the same hotels.
