While I have never stayed at this hotel, I have found the following information:

A hotel since 1889, the Roma occupies four elevator-serviced floors of a
renovated, 16th-century building in the historic center of Bologna.The
facade is rather plain and looks like a cinema, but the interior is first

Via d'Azeglio runs South from Pza. Maggiore, behind the Palazzo Communale. This is a very central location - you'll be able to walk everywhere!

We ate dinner one night at the Ristorante Diana, on via Nazionale (easy walk from your hotel). Food was yummy!! Be sure to make reservations. Bologna is a very cosmopolitan city. It has miles and miles of covered arcades. We really enjoyed Bologna, and the Emilia-Romagna area. You will never eat as well in Italy as in this region!!

Thanks, Paul
Sounds like it is in the area I wanted to be in...close to the old part of the city and near the market area. I am looking forward to the food especially and glad to hear there is a good restaurant near by. How far would you say are you from the train station. Is it walkable?

Well, it's walkable, but I don't know how much luggage you'll have! If you go to this url: <>, then click on the "MAP" icon on the right, you'll bring up a web map of the city. You can zoom in and out, and find street addresses. The station is at the end of Via Independenza. Depending on how much luggage you've got, you might want to think about a cab (right outside the station). It won't cost too much to get down to your hotel.

It is not walkable from the train station. There is a taxi terminal at the train station, so you can catch a cab (have the address and name of the hotel printed out on a piece of paper that you can hand the cabbie--sometimes they misunderstand our mis-pronunication of their words. Also, if you are feeling adventurous, right out front of the train station are various public buses (you must buy a ticket at a little automatic machine by the bus stops--think it's around $1. Simply ask someone, "Mi scusi, quale autobus va al centro, al piazza maggiore?" Ask the bus driver directions once you get of the bus at Piazza Maggiore. Also--EAT AT LA MELA!!! It is near Piazza Maggiore (can't remember exactly where) and is incredible!!! Also, for some fun nightlife, go to "Piedra del Sole" --just ask someone where it is--it is a mexican restaurant/bar that has music some nights and a fun dancing scene. Diana is good, but a little stuffy. Also, a little-known romantic restaurant that is extremely highly rated is "Sale e Pepe" on Via dei Cotelli. Don't forget to visit the Giardini Margharita--a nice large park area that is very fun for people watching. It is an unbeatable city for a stroll, but don't wear clothes that scream "I'm an american!!" aka, wear dark, tighter-fitting clothes and nice leather shoes. If you have any other questions, just email me!

Good evening, Ami
Stayed at the ROMA in 1989 and was very
pleased with its accomodations and service and good dining room. A couple
of years later stayed at the La Cappelo
Russo which is just across the street
and regretted it, did not compare to the
The Roma is less than a half block from
the Pza Maggiore, a very good location.

The Ristorante Le Mela, via de Fusari, 5
is out the back door and turn right and
down less than a half block.

Another ristorante near is the Trattoria Da Adolfo, Corte Galluzzi, 7 out the
front door and to the right in small
courtyard on left, watch for sign and
make reservations, this is a very small
Ma and Pa ristorante with plenty of
Here are a couple of urls for Bologna

See site and check out , is close to
east side of Pza Maggiore is the before lunch...

Ami: I stayed at the Roma this past April, and it is a lovely hotel. It is definitely walkable from the train station, provided you have no more than 1 rolling bag and perhaps a shoulder bag. It's a 15-minute walk along porticoed sidewalks, past all sorts of neat little shops you can check out as you go by. The hotel's location is perfect. Buses from the station are available, but I prefer to walk whenever possible so as not to miss any of the fun stuff!
