Albergo Aretusi:
hotel in Bologna

The perfect place to treat yourself to a relaxing, romantic getaway - an iconic building in Bologna's history.

The old hayloft hosts the Hotel of Villa Aretusi. This small handful of rooms guarantees a relaxing stay, all within the peace and tranquillity of the Villa's park.
The hotel lies within easy reach of the highway and airport, making it the ideal stop for those travelling both for business and pleasure. It takes a mere few minutes to drive to the centre of Bologna, whose piazzas and palazzos are must-see destinations on any culture-lover's itinerary.
The hotel is ideal for anyone who wants to stay in the countryside, without straying too far from the city.

Repurposed from what was originally a hayloft, Villa Aretusi comprises ten guest bedrooms, all provided with the essential amenities to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
