Stayed here only one night after a business trip in Cesena with some colleagues. The hotel itself is quite a bit of walk from the city center, so not advisable for those who are not keen on walking 15 minutes to the center daily. Their breakfast spread had quite a big selection, which I enjoyed before separating from my colleagues...

We stayed at the Aemilia during late December 2016. The hotel is positioned in a very quiet street about 15 minutes walk from the city centre. Don't be put off by the distance as most of the walk is under the cover of the porticoes. The hotel is modern, and the rooms are large, comfortable and kept very clean. The...

This hotel lacks character and is stuck in an awkward location quite far from the city centre. I would not recommend it unless you are visiting for a conference in the hotel itself. The breakfast was below the standard you would expect.

I've stayed at this hotel a few times over the past 5 years, and the standards have never slipped. It's clean, professionally managed and always good value. Close to the university district and the centre of Bologna (a few minutes walk) and right next to the large university teaching hospital. The staff are friendly and well-informed. The breakfast is excellent...

- near train station (taxi €10) - near Bologna Fiere (taxi € 10) - near historical center (10 min. walking) - comfortable, large, clean bedroom - great breakfast - good restaurant (I had dinner) - and most of all: very polite and helpful staff

I've been here for a meeting. The room was clean and cosy, the bathroom was spacious and clean. Good continental breakfast, the meeting room was spacious, the personnel was nice - very helpful and kind. The hotel itself is at 10/15 mins walk from piazza Maggiore.

I've stayed here well over ten times. Each year, the service becomes better and more personal. The staff treats me like a good friend and seem to anticipate my business needs. Great location just outside the center makes parking simple. Just an overall great hotel, well run and very inviting. Couldn't recommend more highly.
