This hotel is a 15-20 min walk from the centre of Bologna. Although this isn't for everyone, we thought that it gave us a good opportunity to have a look around on the way into town each day. The hotel is great value for money, but is a modern business type hotel, with no real character. We had expected this...

Excellent hotel. All the mod cons and a perfect location too. Only a leisurely 15 min stroll to the center of town with its hustle and bustle, so nice to return to a quiet setting. If walking was too much there is a bus stop just up the road with regular service into town. Room was on the 4th floor...

We stayed at the Aemilia hotel for four days during our mini tour of Italy. We went for a superior room, it was a good size with some amazing views across the cityscape. Clean, modern, business type hotel. Friendly, helpful and professional staff across all areas of the hotel. Oh and a lovely breakfast too. Regarding location, a fifteen minute...

We stayed at the Aemilia Hotel this weekend, and everything about it was great. The staff were lovely and very helpful. We were delayed and fully expected to pay for our first night and claim it back from the airline, but they didn't charge us. The roof terrace is lovely with great views of Bologna and the hot tub very...

Clean and modern. Good size room with large bed and plenty of storage space. Plenty to chose from at breakfast (they were even accommodating when we arrived late on the first morning, working on UK time!) The reception staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful, whatever time of day or night. Valeria, especially, spent ages with us when we were having...

The Aemilia is a modern business hotel on the east side of the city, there are a lot of good reasons to stay here. It is clean and spacious, the rooms are moderately large with huge and very comfortable beds. Breakfast has a wide choice of continental and 'British' options. All the staff are attentive and friendly. It's in a...

I'll start by saying the location was great for access to old Bologna town which was a 15 minute walk, but the location itself wasn't the best, saying that I would recommend the hotel to anyone and would gladly stay again without hesitation. There was underground parking on arrival (free) and the reception staff couldn't have been more accommodating, welcome...

Great hotel, perfect room, outstanding breakfast, clean and quiet, just outside the busy centre but only 10 minute walk to 2 Torri. Very friendly and adequate personnel at reception as well as in the breakfast room. Even roofterrace with jacuzi overviewing the city of Bologna. Superb!
