Bus tickets in Bologna cost 1800 Lire (~1 EUR) each. Tickets are valid for 60 minutes, and allow you to switch to other buses if necessary, without making use of new tickets. 60 minutes should be enough to reach Castel San Pietro Terme. If not, you are supposed to make use of another ticket. You should enter the bus from either the front or back doors, and leave it from the central doors. The small yellow box you will see close to the entrance door is the "validation" machine. Put inside your ticket until you hear the "validation" sound.
Tickets are NOT sold at the buses, so buy your tickets in advance. You can buy them at any place where newspapers are sold, or in the many "Tabacchi" shops (ask for one "biglietto"). If you plan to go back and forth to Bologna (how, if you have plenty of lessons, huh?) you should think of buying a "City Pass", which is 8 tickets in one piece of paper, at a cost of 12000 Lire. City Passes are not personal, so you can share one with other people.

Bus No. 94 runs to Castel S. Pietro Terme (in practice, to the Albergo). Travel time is ~45 minutes. Note that it doesn't run on Sundays.
Bus 94 stops in Via Marconi (see this map ; north is up and east is to the right). If you took the Aerobus at the airport, you will enter downtown coming eastwards, through Via San Felice and Ugo Bassi. You should leave the bus at the Ugo Bassi bus stop. Then walk back to reach Via G. Marconi, go on to the right side of this street until you see the bus stop for Bus 94. The nearest bus stop to the Rail Station is in Via dei Mille (see the same map as before), close to Piazza dei Martiri 1943-1945, about 300 meters from the station. (Yes, Bus 94 goes from V. Marconi, turns to the right and stops in Via Mille.) Bus No. 94 has its final stop just in front of 'Albergo delle Terme'. In case you catch the 101 bus, you can switch to bus 94 at the Castel San Pietro Bus Station, to reach 'Albergo delle Terme'.
