Palazzo Pannolini, Sixteenth Century, Very Central 50 meters from Two Towers
average rating of 4.87234 based on 47 reviews

Lovely, well equipped apartment in the heart of Bologna.

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the hospitality provided by Giancarlo. He met us at the apartment and was very helpful, providing information and assistance that helped us take full advantage of what Bologna has to offer! The apartment is located just a few steps from the University and is a very short walk to the two towers. The apartment is well equipped and charming. We loved the statue outside the bedroom window. Centrally located, the apartment was easy to enjoy during the day after a busy morning sight-seeing or before a late supper at a nearby restaurant. It really felt like home. Our trip to Bologna was a special one for us. The Palazzo Pannolini apartment really is the perfect place to stay to fully enjoy Bologna.

The apartment was exactly what we were after. It was just the right size for the two of us.

  • 5 of 5

Giancarlo was such an excellent host. He kept in good contact us with and could not be more helpful. The apartment itself was excellent. The location was perfect and so central it meant that we could walk to everything straight from our base. What I was really impressed with was that everything had been thought of in the apartment itself and so really felt that all of our needs were met. The air conditioning was fantastic and kept us lovely and cool in the hot week of our holiday. We enjoyed such a quiet stay within the apartment, that we felt cool and refreshed when we went out and enjoyed exploring so many beautiful churches and museums. I would thoroughly recommend this beautiful apartment and the sights and sounds of Bologna.

nice stay in the apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is centrally located in the old town. It is quiet and had everything we needed. It is very easy walk to see the tourist site, eating and shopping. Giancarlo is very nice to meet us in the car rental office and took us to his apartment. He is very quick to response to questions and offered advise. We joined the Italian day food tour he recommended and had a great time. He even booked the taxi for us when we left. We really appreciated his assistance.

The apartment is small and tidy. It is perfect for a short stay in Bolognia. I especially liked the upstairs bedroom which felt like a cozy nest.
