Bologna apartment description

The features making our apartment a real winner amongst the top rentals in Bologna are many. First, its quality – Olympia is part of one of the most beautiful and elegant patrician palaces in this Italian capital of gourmet food, night life and fashion and was completely refurbished in 2011 with the exclusive use of top quality materials. Add the absolute quiet of a 1500’s inner courtyard all windows overlook, its design furniture and furnishing chosen with love and zest, its position in the very heart of Bologna’s historical center, the quiet and elegant Via Castiglione bordered with the best quality shops, stores, restaurants etc. and served by a very efficient public transportation system with all stops nearby. As a result, an extremely prestigious and comfortable apartment, by far the right choice for the traveller visiting Bologna for tourism, business, conventions, trade exhibits and more. All for a very competitive price when compared to properties in the same range.

Olympia (about 90 square meters in size, second floor with elevator) is a light and bright, charming, extremely clean and cozy apartment, class and atmosphere the key words. An elegant hallway and a patrician staircase both reminiscent of the great Renaissance Bologna, a gate and a sturdy safety door, a view over the dome of St. Domenico Cathedral and the red roofs of Bologna offer the guest total safety, ambiance and pure enjoyment. One of the oldest and most celebrated osterias in town is right around the corner for your night fun and gourmet pleasure. Parking is available at a nearby public, guarded lot.

As for its layout, Olympia is composed by a large, bright room with dining and living areas, the latter featuring a great Zironi couch and a select design, brand new sofa bed that can easily and comfortably accommodate two. A very large loft with a skylight window and own en-suite bathroom can accommodate two additional persons in a large double bed. Both the sofa bed and the double bed have very firm frames and mattresses. All linen (bathroom, kitchen, bed) are first quality and provided at no additional charge.

A very efficient kitchen with all tools provided separates the abovementioned spaces from a bathroom, which, not differently from the one upstairs, is being kept immaculate and thoroughly sanitized after each stay. The apartment features a washing machine, a dishwasher, a large flat screen tv set, top quality dishes, pottery, glassware and all the accessories one needs for a practical, comfortable stay. Olympia is air conditioned and heated by a very efficient timer-operated heat pump system. An internet wifi connection is provided at no extra charge.

We look forward to having you with us soon.

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About: I am a psychologist conducting professional practice in Bologna and renting out this apartment and a villa on the coast on a short term basis. Both properties have been remodelled and furnished with an idea in mind - make them the most comfortable home away from home for you and all our dear guests.

                  Why Bologna:
                  We fell in love with this apartment at the first sight. It was light-filled, roomy, with a nice view, located in the best section of the Historical Center and very, very quiet.
