I can not compliment the staff that works the front desk enough. They make this hotel a good value. They are very knowledgeable about the sites and can recommend good restaurants. The hotel is on the edge of the old town so it is very convient.

We were very happy with our choice of Aemilia Hotel. Taxi from the airport was 22.50 Euro, 25 with tip, it saved us a lot of hassle because the airport bus will take you to the main train station, which is 25-30 minute walk away or local bus, but we did not want the hassle with our luggage to carry....

We went to Italy for Neridronate treatment for my CRPS - if you know anyone that has that disease please let them know. They are starting trials in the US but it really works.

Dear Guest, thank you for your kind review. We are glad you appreciated the services of our hotel. I would only like to clarify that the hospital shuttle bus is not operative any more, not because the driver is on holiday, but because the hospital shut down the service (in fact, it's not advertised anymore on our websites).

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and it was excellent from all aspects. We upgraded to premier room, in the 6th floor, and we were not disappointed.

Dear Miss Jaimie, Thank you very much for your kind review. Following your communication I found and speak with the dog master in order to be sure the dog is not left alone during the whole day. In that way we avoid the noise of the barking. Hope to welcome you again at Aemilia Hotel. Best regards Luca Bibolini Manager

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...
