Travel Blogs from Bologna
Buongiorno! A quick note--there will often be more pictures in my collection than I post in this blog. So, be sure to check the photos above (they'll also be larger there)! Things have been going pretty well in Firenze although Brian has had a terrible time sleeping. The bedroom apartment is very quiet at night; so, if he can get to sleep, he stays …
Ciao! (again, just a reminder, there are more pictures than found in this blog!) The second morning in Bologna was also beautiful although we were going to run out of luck by the end of the day. Taking advantage again of the weather, we thought we'd walk a bit more, exploring some other squares and churches. Our first stop was Piazza Santo Stefano …
The Bologna Trip was one of three Cultural Trips provided by IES to students in the program. The other ones are a 3-day trip to Rome in March and a 5-day trip to Sicily in April. I'm not going on the other two trips because I've already been to Rome and the Sicily one is very expensive and I'd rather spend my money on other trips (like a week …
Ipod - my good friend kam thindal felt I had insulted my Christian readers by calling Rome the home of Christianity (which he said is jerusalem) instead of, as he said, Catholics. It's a very good point so I wanted to apologize to my 1 Christian reader: sorry kamal (aka JC). Now we're in bologna and I already had my tagliatelle ragu (bolognese). It …
Well after a few days of being sick I'm just about recovered, still got a stuffy nose and sunny probably needs another day. We're headed to Florence today which is only an hour away and hopefully we can get a room at the same place as last time. I walked around bologna yesterday checking it out, it doesn't have any main attractions like David but …

Historical Traveler Reviews Paradise Hotel Bologna
A Perfect Place to Stay
A group of us from Ireland stayed in the Paradise hotel for 3 nights on the 11.02.05 to 15.02.05. The hotel was situated within walking distance from all the main attractions and from the shopping locations. The hotel staff were so welcoming and warm and looked after us very well. Our rooms were sparkling clean and not one of us could complain about anything. It was a great holiday and the hotel was superb. Will deffinately return and stay in the Paradise Hotel. It was certainly very reasonably priced and so central for a visit to Bologna. I would recommend this to anyone.
Can find no fault with Hotel Paradise other than it seems uncetain what it want's to be (this may be true of Bologna itself). Nice little ammenities in room, but so-so breakfast. All-in-all, a good stopover in a town that has unique charm coupled with big-city attitude.
Great little spot
What a wonderful hotel. Great location, pleasant staff, nice breakfast.
We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed the understated sights and sounds of Bologna. Hotel was charming and easy to find, just get off the airport bus at the second stop an Via dell'Independenza, take the side street just at the stop, go past the sex shop and it's just on your right opposite the barber shop.
We got a room on the second floor which was fine but we could hear the
staff getting breakfast sorted out at 7am! What a nice wake up call.
You need to get down early for breakfast early anyway to get the fresh
croisants, etc. I can highly recommend this spot and will stay there
again when we return.
The Paradise was in an excellent location in Bologna. The rooms were clean and modern. We had skylights in 2 of our rooms which was a nice feature as you could open the skylights. Good price for Bologna - highly recommended.
Good value and very friendly
Hotel Paradise is a modern building centrally located, and offers really good value as well as warm and friendly reception. The hotel has some novel ideas to brightening up your day, like posting riddles, sayings, and jokes, all making the place more fun. The rooms at the top floor are slightly larger and have more character than on the first two three floors. I was surprised at the two negeative reviews I saw. I would for sure pay this hotel another visit in the future.
Good hotel- but some problems
We stayed at Hotel Paradise for two nights during the heat wave. Our room was cramped and did not have a functioning airconditoner, and the only ventilation was a skylight. The women on the hotel staff could not have been nicer and more accomodating, and gave us a large free standing fan to use, but we were still too uncomfortable during our stay.
The rooms and public spaces are small and cramped. Although this hotel is cheerful and very well-run , I would advise you double check on the status of air-conditioning if you plan to stay here during summer months.
Great Little Find
A great little hotel right in the centre of town and close to everything. Best aspects: friendly and helpful staff, good continental breakfast, priced well (but probably goes up for the summer) for spring tourists. Clean and quite nice decor. Would definitely stay here again.
A little gem
It is a struggle to find a single criticism of this hotel. It offers bed and breakfast only but, within this category, I know few better better anywhere. The rooms are comfortable, air conditioned, well appointed and decorated and immaculately clean. Breakfast is to a high standard and the staff are friendly and helpful. It is two minutes walk from the 2nd stop of the airport shuttle bus in Via dell' Indipendenza and no more than ten minutes from any of the central features of the city. It would be my first choice for my next visit.
A corner of Paradise
The Paradise is one of the best hotels I've stayed in in Italy (and I've been going there for 25 years). It is very centrally located, 10 minutes on foot from the train station and from Piazza Maggiore, yet even the streetside rooms are very quiet. The room had every single amenity I could have wished for; it was sparkling clean; the breakfast was lovely; the staff were delightful Bolognese women; the bed was superb; and the location was not 50 feet from one of the magic places in the city where the old canals, long since built over, surface and rush between the buildings. It's easy to spend more in Bologna, but very hard to find a better hotel or a warmer welcome.
Naming your hotel "Paradise" is asking for trouble, if you aren't prepared to live up to the claim. Bologna's "Hotel Paradise" really does.
