I stayed in Aemilia Hotel for one night following a family wedding in Loiano. The hotel was very clean and modern and the reception staff were great on arrival and for any questions that our party had. I stayed in one of the Superior rooms on the 5th floor - these rooms were lovely. I had a front view and...

Okay, this is fairly nice hotel but there at just a few uncomfortable things that would have been a deal breaker had I known. 1. If you need a hotel with a fully functioning gym, you should know the gym is a converted hotel room on the 6th floor with 3 very outdated cardio machines and a few weights. 2....

A great hotel conveniently situated within 15 minutes of the city. Last visited Bologna 11 years ago and this new hotel I think proves it's popularity. Good room with a giant bed. Always cleaned to a high standard. Breakfast is excellent and staff attentive.

We spent 5 nights at this hotel and the experience was consistently excellent. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The room was spacious and meticulously cleaned daily. The roof terrace was a delight after a long day sightseeing and the 1st floor bar was very relaxing later in the evening. There was a huge variety of choice for breakfast...
