Aemilia Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 May 2014

Quiet and comfortable room; good breakfast; polite efficient service; inexpensive; good location away from busy traffic. All in all a very good choice. We used our 10 day stay in Bologna to visit Parma and other towns by train;Hotel Aemilia provided an excellent base.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view towards the city centre

when we arrived in Bologna it was raining very heavily and this pretty much continued during a stay except for one day. We got the BLG bus from the airport to the Central train station and then a taxi to hotel (around 9 euros). Taxi's arent expensive and plentiful.The hotel is about a 15 min walk from the Centre but it seems like an hour when it is raining non stop which i felt was the only downside of the hotel really.
The checkin was friendly and welcoming and even though check in was 1400 our room was ready at 1200 and so they very kindly let us check in straight away. We had booked a panoramic room with jacuzzi bath. The room was on the 6th floor with a lovely view of the old part of Bologne.The room was very spacious with lovely wooden floor dominated by massive bed.I loved the bed, it was bigger then king size and heaven to sleep in.
There was a small mini bar but more room to put your own goodies in the fridge.
Hubby loved the Jacuzzi bath and the hotel even provided mineral salts to use and other nice toiletries.
We didnt eat in the restaurant but after sampling breakfast may be should have done because the breakfast buffet was fab. Hot and cold food, hams and cheeses were top quality. There were 6 different types of croissant and 3 different cakes. Also fresh fruits and fruit salads. The breakfast room was nice and sunny and served till 10am.
The hotel had a couple of little restaurants near by including a greek one and they were more then happy to book tables for you. The staff here could not be more ameniable and the place was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Will definately be back.

Room Tip: Book a 6th floor jacuzzi room

We staid at the Aemilia Hotel for five nights during our recent visit to Bologna and had a very good experience. The room was spotlessly clean, the bed HUGE! I can only repeat what many others have commented on: the friendliness of the staff, excellent breakfast, nice roof terrace. We were lucky to have a 5th floor room with a super view over Bologna. Being lovers of city centres we would, ideally, have staid within the old city walls and stepped right out into the arcades - but that said the walk into the centro storico really wasn't arduous. They have a super booking system for taxis! (Which we only used to get back to the airport I hasten to add). Yes, the WiFi is slow and yes, the hotel is large and used for business conferences - but who are we to complain about people having to work while we enjoy ourselves!

Very comfortable and absolutely spotless. Good location though not ideal for centre of city in heavy rain!But also good bus service nearby. Very good value for money.A minor point, but rather slow wifi.

This was a very clean and comfortable hotel. The staff were helpful and friendly. The location was convenient to downtown restaurants and sites we wanted to see.
We enjoyed a bottle of wine on the rooftop with a scenic view of the area.
I will definitely return!

This is an excellent hotel to stay at. It does not have a huge sign outside and if you don't have a gps you will miss the entrance.
The staff is friendly, curteous, efficient and informative. The food is excellent at the restaurant and the breakfast is very copeous and delicious.
The rooms are vry clean and the beds are very comfortable.
A very good place to stay.

Room Tip: Excellent value for your money!
