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.

    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.

    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.

    One of my favourite places to visit in Italy as it's cheaper to fly in and out of than other places and cities like Verona and Florence are a quick train ride away. The food is delicious and an easy city to walk around.

    We loved UNAHOTELS, the staff was so kind and informative, room was spacious, clean, big comfy bed. Breakfast was great, as in all hotels we were in Italy, but the difference is that this hotel has an area with Bologna specialties. <3 Location is great if you carry big bags and luggage as it's right across the main station, and it's a 17 minute walk to the centre. But on the way to the centre there are many things and shops. Also, the breakfast outdoor seating area is lovely!

    Well located hotel in the heart of Bologna. We were upgraded to a junior suite which was spacious and comfortable. Good air conditioning and shutters made the room cool during some very hot weather. Good breakfast and coffee made to order. Great service from staff. The rooftop bar was good - drinks were a little on the expensive side but they were excellent and the complimentary snacks were the best we got in Italy.

    In a quiet side street but just two minutes' walk from Bologna Central railway station, so very convenient indeed. Spacious and clean. Met by a helpful and courteous host. The apartment is part of the Wonderful Italy network, and the company was helpful in giving us directions to the apartment and in offering suggestions for excursions. They are able to arrange these if desired.
