Reception staff are proffessionally friendly and the rooms are impeccable. But don't expect much from the restaurant. It is focused on groups whom they treat not kindly.

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!

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!

Location: It is only 5min walk until you reach Via San Vitale, and from there you proceed to centro storico, which takes you another 5 to 7 minutes walk.
