We stayed at the Aemilia during late December 2016. The hotel is positioned in a very quiet street about 15 minutes walk from the city centre. Don't be put off by the distance as most of the walk is under the cover of the porticoes. The hotel is modern, and the rooms are large, comfortable and kept very clean. The...

This hotel lacks character and is stuck in an awkward location quite far from the city centre. I would not recommend it unless you are visiting for a conference in the hotel itself. The breakfast was below the standard you would expect.

I've stayed at this hotel a few times over the past 5 years, and the standards have never slipped. It's clean, professionally managed and always good value. Close to the university district and the centre of Bologna (a few minutes walk) and right next to the large university teaching hospital. The staff are friendly and well-informed. The breakfast is excellent...

I've stayed here well over ten times. Each year, the service becomes better and more personal. The staff treats me like a good friend and seem to anticipate my business needs. Great location just outside the center makes parking simple. Just an overall great hotel, well run and very inviting. Couldn't recommend more highly.

The hotel itself is nice and clean. But I visited it in December and the room was freezing! You cannot put the temperature past 23 degrees only after you talk downstairs at the reception, but still didn't feel the heat. Basically it was freezing and my coleagues felt the same. Maybe during spring/summer it's different. Wi-Fi was good. It was...
