This is a really nice hotel about ten minutes from the center of magnificent Bologna. Easy to find, parking underneath is a great plus as I was going too and from meetings by car.

Rooms are beautiful and spacious. 20 minute walk from the main square. Bar area could be more comfortable and the outside bar area could use a covering in case it rains. But overall very impressed. Breakfast also very good. Reception staff extremely friendly.

The Aemilia Hotel is a wonderful place to spend your days in Bologna: It is located just outside of the historical center, therefore you have the chance to experience the new as well as the old part of the city. In less than 15 minutes you can walk in the Two Towers area -the bus will take less than 5...

Would be a 5 blobs but loses out just slightly on location being just outside the historic centre ( it is a 20 minute walk to the Two Towers although the bus #14 is only a five minute walk)..... rooms very comfortable...very nice restaurant for breakfast.. carpark adjoining (Eur 12 per night is a good rate for Bologna I think)....

Situated just outside the city walls the Aemilia is a new comfortable hotel. The staff are helpful, breakfasts are fine. The bar lacks a bit of character so didnt use that. It is a short walk into the centre, but this is mainly under the porticoes past the University quarter, there are two fantastic churches on the way in, the...
