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.

Romantic apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

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 !

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

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.
