AI FIUMI – Top Quality Rental in the Historical Center of Bologna – Fully Equipped, Extra Convenient
If you are looking for a top accommodation in Bologna, the fun, fashion and gourmet capital of Italy, and wish to live where most Bologneses wish they could live, this is it!
Ai Fiumi is a very nice, quiet, clean, comfortable apartment complex located in the very heart of the historical center of Bologna, Via Marconi, the best, classiest stores, shops, boutiques, restaurants and more all around. The units of which Ai Fiumi (“The Rivers”) is made of are named after the bodies of water running within the walls of Bologna, or nearby – Reno, a very cozy studio, Navile, a great 2-room apartment, and Lavino, a very large 3-bedroom apartment.
All units have been accurately refurbished between 2010 and 2012 with the short-period vacation rental business in mind and are being impeccably maintained. Particular attention has been paid to essential details such as total quiet, which has been achieved through an advanced noiseproof insulation system (most units overlook an inner courtyard, too); absolute cleanliness, care of a professional staff before and after every stay; general top comfort, granted by excellent furniture and state-of-the-art appliances; and finally, an absolutely competitive price for such a quality rental. All the above clearly mark the difference between Ai Fiumi and the many similar yet lower quality accommodations in town.
All apartments are air conditioned and feature full time, broadband wifi internet connection. Kitchens are fully equipped, bathrooms are immaculate and get thoroughly sanitized at every departure and arrival. A dishwasher and a washing machine are provided together with all the major appliances, bed frames are firm and orthopaedic mattresses get replaced every 2-3 years regardless of their condition, towels, sheets and linen are best quality and included in the price. Cleaning tools and products are provided and included in the price as well.
The studio apartment can accommodate up to 2 adults + 1 child in two single beds that can be put together to form a double, plus a child’s bed. The 2-room apartment sleeps 4-5 in a queen-size bed or two single beds that can be put together to form a double, a very comfy twin sofabed or two single sofabeds and a child’s bed. The 3-bedroom apartment (140 square meters in size) sleeps up to 7 adults plus 1 child and is composed of 2 queen-size bedrooms (one with its own en-suite bathroom), a 3-single bedroom with a balcony, 2 additional bathrooms, a dining room, a fully-equipped kitchen and a hallway.
As for the area, Ai Fiumi is located in the middle of Bologna’s historical center, Via Marconi, a very safe, convenient location only 10 minutes walk to Piazza Maggiore, the train station and Bologna’s most beautiful monuments, museums, theatres, restaurants, stores and boutiques. The Fiera District is 15 minutes with the bus stopping right at the door, about 15 minutes to the University. All kind of shops, a big grocery store, a colourful, traditional Bolognese open-air market are within a few meters walk, and so is a number of great restaurants, little trattorias, pizzerias, ice-cream parlours, bars, osterias and more. Specially discounted cooking and pasta classes, general tour packages are available for our guests upon request.
So book Ai Fiumi to live in Bologna as real Bologneses would live. We look forward to your stay with us!

This apartment was in a great location. Our family of 8 (including 2 children) had all the space we needed and the kitchen was very functional. We were able to walk everywhere including the train station about 10 minutes away. When in Bologna again we will definitely stay here again.

Excellent - Not to be missed when in Bologna
Large, bright, comfortable and extra-clean apartment ran by friendly and helpful people. Antonio was a great host who warmly welcomed us and provided maps and literature to make exploring the city very easy. The apartment is a stone's throw from the Piazza, the station and the Medieval center, with a fantastic veggie, fish and meat market only one block away. Extremely convenient location, safe and well-served by buses, including a shuttle bus to a low-cost parking lot (1.30 Euros/day for both!). The apartment is quiet and ideal for a large family. Absolutely recommended.

This apartment is "fantistico"!!! Larry from St Louis

This was my first time using VRBO. I read all the reviews on the apartments listed by this owner. They were all great - so based on these and the description and photos I decided to rent. I and my friend arrived on the day and time agreed upon. We were greeted and informed about all the amenities of the apartment. The apartment was beyond my expectations. It was spacious, clean, beautifully appointed, quiet and very secure. Oh - the water pressure in the shower was awesome with lots of hot water. It is in the perfect location for exploring historic Bologna, the train station, shops, food markets and wonderful restaurants. Antonio was an excellent host - answering my numerous emails and text messages. He even arranged for a taxi to pick us up on our day of departure. The apartment had air conditioning and to balconies. We did not want to leave. Attention to detail was superb. After a trip to the market for food items we were set for a glorious stay. Thank you again Antonio for letting us experience such a week long dream vacation!

About the owner: I am a professional living and working in Bologna. I love meeting people and making friends, this is one of the reasons why I decided to engage myself in this business.
Why the Owner Chose Bologna:
It is central and you can reach eveything in minutes, either by foot or bicycle. It is also a very safe area surrounded by the best stores and restaurants, movie theatres at walking distance.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
1. Absolute convenience to all spots in town, the train station and the fairground first; 2. Living in a spotlessly clean, quiet, comfortable, functional space - maybe no frills, but no bs either! 3. A great quality-price ratio.
