AEMILIA HOTEL is a modern 4-star hotel, with a refined and elegant design, completely renovated in 2021 and located on the outskirts of the historic center of Bologna. The strategic location of the structure makes AEMILIA HOTEL the perfect choice for both leisure and business customers: one step away from the Sant'Orsola Hospital and the historic center, but outside the traffic-restricted area, 20 minutes by car from the Marconi Airport and just 5 minutes from the ring road and Bologna central train station. The hotel underwent a general refurbishment in January 2021, with a meticulous restyling of the common areas, hall, restaurant, bar and lounges. The rooms have been completely renovated in a modern and elegant style and designed to ensure high levels of comfort and practicality. Welcoming, spacious and equipped with ultra-fast Wi-Fi connection with 1000 Mbps band, the Aemilia Hotel is the ideal solution for the client on a business trip or for the tourist who wants to visit the city. Inside the Hotel, our Gurmè Restaurant is ready to welcome customers every day in its exclusive and finely renovated setting, with "a la carte" service and buffet breakfast. The structure is also equipped with a private garage, a modern and well-equipped Congress Center, a welcoming lounge bar, two terraces, one of which with a splendid view over the rooftops of the city. The great attention paid to customer care and the excellent quality of the product, make Aemilia Hotel the first hotel in Bologna on the absolute ranking of Tripadvisor.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This hotel is about 5 walking minutes from the city walls, so you are quickly in the touristic areas. Very clean, modern and light rooms. All staff we encountered was professional and very kind. Breakfast was more than expected, a great choice of breads - this is coming from a bread-spoiled German :)

The hotel is nicely located about 1.5K from the entrance to the old town in a quiet neighbourhood. The front desk and other staff were friendly and helpful. The junior suite was reasonably large for Italy and clean and well equipped. Breakfasts were good and the in-house restaurant was well presented with a good menu and attentive wait staff.

Excellent location to explore Bologna with friendly and informative staff. We were here for 4 days so larger room was perfect and very spacious and clean with robes and slippers provided. Breakfast was plentiful and extensive. Hotel also has parking which is ideal when driving directly from airport.

While in Bologna we stayed at Aemilia Hotel. We loved it! The hotel restaurant was fantastic for our first night's dinner. The breakfast choices were several, and delicious and fresh ! Location was great in relation to walking into town. The hotel has a beautiful patio to take pictures from with fantastic city views!!! We appreciated our free welcome drink and 10 pct off dinner. The appetizer and main courses were some of the best we had during our trip.

We stayed here for two nights. The room was spotless and very comfortable. The view in the evening from the rooftop is amazing. The breakfast (8 euro) is very good. All the staff we met were very helpful and friendly. Worth noting that it's a bit out of the centre (10 min bus or 20 min walk).

We stayed there with my wife over my conference. The staff did their best to accommodate last minute changes, so thanks to them. The rooms were tidy and nice! I would just hope for sausages with English breakfast, and perhaps little variety of breakfast choices over the week. Otherwise it was really lovely!! 100% recommend. The jacuzzi on the roof is cool!!

We had a junior suite, large room, nicely decorated. on 5th floor. Hotel is suitable for business or good base for city break or traveling by train to other cities. Good cold buffet at breakfast and also some hot choices, The restaurant food was really nice and some good choices. There is a limited bar lounge menu also. We had a small issue on first night, which was handled very well by the staff . The Front of House Manager , Marco was also on the ball the very next morning and could not have handled to matter more professionally, always a mark of a good hotel. They were accommodating when we asked if it was possible to have a later checkout ( as we had a very late flight back home) which was very much appreciated. All in all comfortable hotel, good location and very pleasant staff.

The hotel is a twenty minute walk to Piazza Maggiore, Giardini Margherita and many of the other museums, churches and restaurants in Bologna. The staff was friendly and helpful. From my room window I can see the two towers and the rest of the skyline in the historic center of Bologna.
