Downtown Bologna hotels: my favorites

If you are planning a vacation in Bologna, one of the first things to organize is where to sleep. If you prefer to stay in the city center, I will help you here with a selection of my favorite downtown Bologna hotels!


I suppose that you, like me, when traveling, want to find the best option for you stay, that will make you totally feel at ease. Maybe you prefer a dream place for living a unique experience, or maybe you prefer something handy and cheaper to be just your “base”, but still you would like the place to have its personality.

To be honest, I do look for a lot of things in an accommodation, so I search patiently online a lot, to find the “perfect” solution for me. I look for special places that can let me live a “one of the kind” time also regarding the accommodation!

It’s a 4 star hotel in the very city center with an incredible terrace over Bologna’s roofs! The hotel is family owned since ever and they will make you feel like at home, a welcoming luxury atmosphere you’ll love.

Rooms are all lovely, one has also frescos on the ceiling… look at them! Really amazing:


Then the rooftop terrace is worth the stay: an amazing view over the city all day, but really magical at sunset time ♡:
