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.

    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.

    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.

    Bologna is a charming and organized city with religious sights, a fascinating history of science and university culture, a welcoming atmosphere and of course: wealthy, delicious but not overly complicated gastronomy. You could easily discover the city and the nearby hills in 2 full days if you are fit and willing to walk 15-20 km a day, while 3 days would be a comfortable pace. Daytrip to Ravenna is recommended and trains run frequently, but Parma was disappointing - better visit some of the car/motorbike museums of the region; or spend a day at the sea in Rimini.

    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.

    The room is exactly as in the photos. It is very convenient because the stop of the bus to Bologna Central Station is a step away from the entrance of the building. Very clean and nice. The building itself is located next to a small, quiet park. The apartment has a shared kitchen with two other apartments. I forgot some stuff in the fridge. I called the owner, Roberta, and she was very accommodating to pass it on to a company that handles lost luggage at hotels, for which I thank her very much.

    We really enjoyed our time here. Close to the airport, close to the centre and also the train station. Staff were all friendly and the reception desk was very helpful. Breakfast was very good with a wide range of offerings. Room was very spacious with good air conditioning. The restaurant is very good, we normally avoid eating in hotels but we ended up having dinner twice here. I stayed in another hotel in Bologna closer to the station and it was very old and tired inside, not the case here.

    A beautiful old apartment that has been subdivided into several hotel rooms. The shared kitchen/living room was stunning. The location was super central and our host was very friendly and met us at the door to explain everything and suggest where to go in Bologna. The room isn't huge but there is enough storage space, as well as a stunning high ceiling and tall window.
