The Paradise Is Everything They Say It Is!from Brian_Abroad
For an excellent tour of the city, book any of the walking tours at the Tourist office in Piazza Maggiore. Tours are in English and are free, but you have to book the day before. Our "Classic Bologna" tour was conducted by a professor of architecture from the university and we saw and learned things not mentioned in any of the guidebooks. One day we took a daytrip over to Ravenna, about an hour or so away by train. It was extraordinary seeing the Byzantine mosaics looking as clean and fresh as if they were just created last year, though most dated from the 5th and 6th centuries.
Our only disappointment was that our stay in Bologna was too short. There was so much more to see in this clean, friendly, hospitable, historic and fun-loving city, which, incidentally, is also sadly often overlooked by many tourists from the States. The Paradise Hotel is a great base for seeing it all--and fortified with their awesome breakfasts, it's easy to do so.
An Apartment at the Paradisefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Don’t look for fancy decor or luxury at the Paradise, but the room was quite comfortable, and it was nice to have so much space and to be able to have a bite to eat in the room at times when we were tired, not particularly hungry, and didn’t want to spring for a restaurant.
Our only complaints were that the room was quite dark, with very little view, and that it could have been better dusted. The bathroom was cleaned well, however, and that’s the main thing. The street was quiet but well located to walk to all the main sights of Bologna as well as the train station within 10 or 15 minutes. You just had to be careful when opening the door into the narrow street to watch out for scooters racing around the corner! Service was pleasant and friendly.
There is an Internet cafe just across the street, but we found the one a few blocks down on Via Oberdan (Happynet) a better deal — only 3 euro an hour, and we could plug in our own laptop.
We would not hesitate to recommend the Paradise to anyone for a good value in Bologna.
Excellent hotelfrom wynmead
One of the staff lent me there car park outside the door. The hotel is excellent and strives to go the extra mile in every respect. I loved the place. It was so handy to everything. I can recall the breakfast as being yet again, striving to be better that the rest. Truly excellent. These guys really try and I enjoyed it.
I'd be back in a flash.
Excellent Managementfrom Albo007

Does what it says on the tinfrom bodger
Very convenient location, the airport bus stop at Arena del sole is 150 metres away, handy to walk around the city.
Rooms very swish and modern. Staff don't bite!
The barbers shop outside run by Enso is great.
Good choice for breakfast if a tad cramped. Good value.
Will definately rush back to this Hotel and Bologna.

Top Local Tips for Bologna
A city of science With the oldest university in Europe, Bologna has a rich history of science and culture. The area has been inhabited since 900 BC beginning with the Etruscans. There is an excellent archeology museum, you can visit classrooms where students studied in the 1600. You will not find the Renaissance art of Florence, but you will find a city steeped in history. It is easy to explore the surrounding region by in expensive and convenient train. A day trip to Venice is easy. The food, of course is fabulous. There is an excellent outdoor market. You can have a coffee a pastry in a differnet cafee every day and not be disapointed once. Also, some of the best gelato I have eaten in Italy. The city is also fantastic for walking, with any area in the cental district reachable in 15 minutes. This wold be a great stay for 3-5 days.
Foodies Heaven This city is the Gatronomic Centre of Italy and from our experience it lived up to the reputation. Wheather a full blown 3 hour meal or a Pannini at the counter or on the hoof the food was fantastic.A wide choice of restaurants and pizzerias.Often the later also serve other traditional Italian food at good value
University town Any night is a good night. We figured out that a lot of business people go to Bologna for conventions, and it is also a University town. So you can count on good food at various price points and good nightlife.
