About the property

Sleeps up to 4. Key location to the station and fairground. Great view.

Bologna Skyline, our beautiful, elegant, cozy 2-room apartment with a special feeling to it, was designed to offer the tourist, the corporate person, the family and whomever needs to be in Bologna for a limited period of time a centrally-located accommodation at the top of comfort, convenience and quality-price ratio.

Completely refurbished in May 2012, our apartment is part of an elegant, modern residential complex located in the Porta Mascarella-San Donato area, a central key location to all spots in town – Piazza Maggiore, the Fairground, the railroad station, the University, all reachable in a few minutes walk with stores, shops, banks, restaurants, etc. surrounding. Connected to the rest of the city by the very efficient Bologna public transport system (city bus – stop right at the door), Bologna Skyline features its own parking facility (underground garage) and a rather large, totally accessible park and playground area in the back of the complex. All the above make our apartment the ideal solution for small families with children as well as those wiling to move around either by bus or car.

Light-filled, extremely comfortable, perfectly functional and safe with its sturdy anti-intrusion door, the apartment was renovated in May 2012. It is composed of one bedroom (two single beds that can be assembled to make a queen size) with a desk and a chair, a large living-dining room with a very comfortable queen-size foldup sofabed, a fully-equipped kitchenette, a bathroom (shower) and an amazingly beautiful furnished terrace with a breathtaking view over the roofs, the towers and the hills of Bologna – the ideal spot for your alfresco dining and relaxing, a wonderful feature that would make your stay an unforgettable one.

A top-floor apartment, Bologna Skyline features absolute quiet in an amazingly comfortable environment. Furniture and furnishing were chosen with the utmost love and zest, mattresses and frames are new, firm and great for your back, all linen (bathroom, bedroom, kitchen) are top quality and provided at no extra charge. A washing machine, a digital tv, an excellent heating system and all primary appliances are provided together with free, 24/24, 7/7 wifi internet connection. The apartment is air conditioned.

Given all the above, Bologna Skyline is without any doubt one of the top accommodations in this beautiful capital of gourmet food, fashion and fun – except for its prices, that are definitely below average in its range. No reason to hesitate, look no further – book Bologna Skyline now!

What a wonderful apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (teenagers!) had a really lovely stay in Alessandro's lovely, well appointed apartment. Thanks to its layout, and its large spacious balcony, we didn't at all feel scrunched up. Communication was excellent, and Alessandro went out of his way to welcome us. He was also quick to respond the few times we whatsapped him with queries. The kitchen was well equipped (there was a bottle of white from a local Bologna vineyard in the fridge on arrival!), beds were very comfortable, and on those hot July days, the air-conditioning worked perfectly. The balcony was perfect for early mornings and evenings. Alessandro was very kind in allowing us to check out late so that our daughter, who had fallen ill, could rest till our train time in the afternoon. Thank you! Train station and a couple of supermarkets are an easy walk away. There are many books in the apartment on the region that came in useful. Also lots of travel adaptors! We had rented a car to explore the region, and visit the car factories (make advance reservations!), and this apartment building was ideally situated for the purpose. From the balcony you see the spread of the terracotta rooftops, Le Due Torri, and many of the old watch towers for which the city is famous. Bologna is a university town, and thriving. Its piazzas were full till early hours of the morning, and listening to an outdoor summer concert was one of the highlights of our stay there. Marvelous!

Week in Emilia - Romagna

  • 4 of 5

The Apartment was within a short walking distance from the train station. We were met by the owners wife Maria who was extremely helpful and informative. The Apartment was well situated within 15 minutes walk to the centre of Bologna with excellent views of the city from the spacious balcony. It was an ideal size for 2 people; comfortable and clean and wine in the fridge!. There were some excellent guide books and maps of the area available to guests. Easy Access to the Apartment was via a lift and we felt safe and secure. It was particularly hot during our visit and although the Apartment had air conditioning it didn't appear to be effective enough to give us relief from the heat at night. Location is perfect for enjoying the wonderful cuisine and beverages available in Bologna also its proximity to the train station made it easy for us to travel the region ( Venice approx 1 hour ; Modena 30 minutes) using the very efficient train service.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. As you yourself noticed, we are having an unbelievable, very unusual hot Summer this year, this is why the ac system seemed not to be effective enough. We have replaced the old thermostat with a new, more powerful one though, and set the default low temperature even lower. It works beautifully now - while the city seems like melting in the heat - wow! Ciao, come back soon.

Italian experience!

  • 5 of 5

Modern, comfortable, very secure apartment with fantastic views over the city. We were warmly welcomed by our professional host who met us at the gate. The apartment was very clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Lift to the 11th floor. We loved sitting on the sunny balcony for breakfast. It is quiet in the block, no noise at night. Slight traffic noise from the main road below. The apartment block is located 10 minutes walk from the train and bus station, an easy walk with a suitcase, and 15 minute walk to Place Maggiore. There are two supermarkets within a few minutes walk.

Bologna is a lively, interesting city; a place to experience the Italian lifestyle; steeped in history and art with lots of restaurants, bars and great shopping. It is also a brilliant location for travelling by train to Florence, Venice, Ferrara, Faenza, Modena (Ferrari) etc. We spent two weeks in this area and will be back for more.

I stayed in this lovely, well-appointed and immaculate apartment for a week in February while I was in the area for business. Alessandro and his wife have set up the apartment with every possible convenience (great kitchen, lightening-fast internet, lots of comfortable touches). It is convenient both to the old city and to the train station, set in a very quiet and secure high-rise complex (elevator to the 11th floor, and to underground parking if needed). The balcony allows a great view of the old city, and a long wall all of windows (including one that opens to the balcony) means that the apartment is flooded with light. Of course, when you want to sleep, there are the exterior blinds to darken the apartment! The setup is very smart, with two twin beds that can combine into a double, and a sofabed in the main living area. This would be comfortable for a small family or a group of friends. I would stay here again in a heartbeat, and have already recommended this apartment to friends.

My sons and I stayed here in July, 2013. Everything was exactly as portrayed and we fell in love with Bologna, the apartment and everything in the area.

The train station and shops and the historic center were all mere minutes away on foot. Everyone was friendly and we hope to visit again. Thanks so much for such a beautiful and comfortable apartment!

A home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in Bologna Skyline for ten days in September and found it to be very satisfactory indeed. We have rented a great many apartments in Italy and most, (but not all), tend to be a little cold and spartan. Bologna Skyline bucks that trend and feels like home, with lots of thoughtful touches. It really does feel like someone lives there, rather than a brief stop-off for tourists.

It's located on the 11th floor of a very well run block, with nicely tended communal areas and very efficient elevators – so no access problems. The views from the huge balcony are stunning. The apartment is divided into three areas, a living space, bedroom and bathroom area. In the bathroom there were toiletries provided, although we had no need to use them. The living/dining area is quite spacious for two, it may get a little crowded for four. Again, there was every conceivable creature comfort in this room also. The internet wi-fi was fast and reliable with no drop-outs or problems of any kind.

Getting to the centre of Bologna was very easy, with the main square being about a twenty minute to half hour walk away. If you didn't want to walk, there a plenty of buses that leave from the bottom of Via dell'Indipendenza. This brings me on to another of the apartments strengths, access to the main railway station. It looks easy enough on the map but if you take the second right after Via Attilio Muggia, on to Via Barozzi Iacopo, then you get a great short-cut right on to the platforms, avoiding the busy Piazza in front of the station.

There are just a couple of things to bear in mind. While there is an excellent shutter on the bedroom window, which will block out 100% of the light, there is no door or curtain on the connection between the bedroom and living room. So if the living room is light – so is the bedroom. Also, even though the apartment is on the 11th floor, there is still quite a bit of road noise from Viale Angelo Masini. This wasn't a problem for my wife and I as we live in a city and we are accustomed to a little traffic noise but may be a problem for light sleepers.

In conclusion, we really enjoyed our stay in Bologna Skyline and were made to feel very welcome by Alessandro. When we return to Bologna, we will definitely stay here again.

We are at the gates of the Medieval Center of Bologna, so nightlife, fun, gourmet restaurants, shopping, leisure and all are just one step beyond. The vibrant Friday & Saturday Clothing and Flea Market is no more than 400 mts., the train station is 3 minutes walk, the Fairground is 8 minutes and Piazza Maggiore only 15-20 minutes. This is a key area for all the interesting spots in town with an important plus - no mess, no hassle.
