                                                            Comfortable flat - great location

                                                            Nelson O.

                                                            I had to travel to Italy for business. I took a couple days to see Bologna. This flat was perfect for walking the historic part of the city. Giancarlo was very helpful and available for any questions.

                                                            Romantic apartment in a great location

                                                            The apartment is a cute little place in a great location, but on a quite courtyard. Giancarlo could not have been more helpful and attentive, willing to give us the lay of the land and getting a taxi for us back to the train station when we left.

                                                            Perfect apartment in a superb location !

                                                            Great little apartment situated on a busy street near all attractions / shops/ restaurants but when inside it was so very quiet - Only the church bells could be heard . Giancarlo was a perfect host. Very informative and helpful. Bologna is a very compact city - easy to see everything in a few days and a easy starting point for visiting other places in the surrounding district . Would thoroughly recommend !

                                                            Great apartment, perfect location, highly recommended!

                                                            Sherren A.

                                                            Giancarlo met us with a very warm and friendly welcome. He spoke to the taxi driver over the phone for us when the driver couldn’t find the address. He explained everything in the apartment & told us places to go, good restaurants etc.

                                                            The apartment was clean and very well equipped and everything worked. It was a pleasant apartment to come home to.

                                                            The location was excellent close to lots of restaurants & easy walking distance to all of the old town.

                                                            I would highly recommend this apartment and Giancarlo as a host!

                                                            Central area within walking distance to all important points of interest.

                                                            Rino C.

                                                            Giancarlo is a great host & immediately came to the rescue when the internet went down & when we were having trouble arranging a ride back to the airport. Complete suite for all your needs & very clean & comfortable.

                                                            Lovely flat, well equipped with bedroom up stairs for privacy.

                                                            Andra D.

                                                            Giancarlo was very helpful from the start as to what exit we should take at train station to meeting us at flat and going over everything. The flat is in an ideal location, lots to see, great food, lots of action. Visiting Bologna was a lovey experience and look forward to a return visit.
