“A true 4 stars”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

After some bad experiences with the Italian hotels, we finally found a great place that deserves all its 4 stars. The hotel is located in an area not so far away from the city center, about 15,20 minutes by walk, and present itself with nice and modern facilities! Compared to other Italian hotels, it offers a great breakfast! Warmly recommended!

Large, very clean, comfortable room, good bathroom. Very helpful multilingual reception staff.
Excellent immediate response to a problem with the safety deposit drawer which was fixed within 15 minutes of us reporting it.
Nice roof terrace, didn't use the hot tub but it looked clean. Reasonable choice at breakfast and didn't have a problem getting a table. Offers rooms for smokers as well as non smokers which as we are smokers was appreciated. Location is a good 20 minute walk from the centre but taxi's are reasonably priced. Didn't use the bar or restaurant.
Good value. Would stay again, and recommend.

A good hotel in an excellent location, 15mins walk from the old centre of Bologna. Bologna is a very impressive city & it is so nice having a good & comfortable hotel to return to after a hard day on the tourist trail. Great breakfast.
Choose a room on 5/6 th floors with a view of the old city.

Room Tip: Room on 5/6 th floors with city views

An amazing touristic base hotel from where you can reach many famous italian must-see places in about 30'.

This customer oriented hotel has high reviews and they are absolutely deserved.

I have been there 3 times within one year and can not think of another place to go when back in Bologna.

Even if a little off center with easy way to reach it : 20' walking or 5'-10' by bus.

Stayed April 2014, travelled solo

Five of us stayed for three nights and we were very impressed with the Hotel. All the staff were very efficient and friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms are clean, very spacious and the large beds very comfortable.
Although it was a good walk into town we tended to take taxis in and it worked out quite cheap between us all.
We would definitely recommend the Aemelia and hope to return one day.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 6th floor and had a good view of Bologna from the room

We stayed only for 2 nights, and this is a nice and good quality hotel. The rooms are spacious and plenty of facilities., the beds are comfortable, and the breakfast was as expected, very good and rich. Located at about 15 minutes walk to downtown, the hotel itself is modern, very fancy, located in a nice neighborhood, very clean, and offers a beautiful view of Bologna's towers, Service was good too, we would recommend it.

We stayed only for 1 night, but this is a lovely hotel. The rooms are spacious and luxurious, the beds comfortable, and the breakfast was great. There is a rooftop jacuzzi and sun garden which we didn't make use of although had a look, it doesn't look to be as well kept as the rest of the hotel. Service was good too, would recommend a stay here
