Convenient and beautiful flat leads to a wonderful month

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of September 2016 at Gabriella's lovely flat in Bologna and had a wonderful time. Gabriella met us on the first day with a cake and a bottle of Lambrusco. She also had stocked the fridge with milk and orange juice. She gladly offered to help us in any way possible and followed through with directions to good restaurants, a laundry (dry cleaners), and grocery stores. We have been to Bologna several times before and the location of her apartment was one of the many reasons we chose it. We were not disappointed!! The apartment is large compared to many we have seen especially in the center. The views from the living room, master bedroom, and the bath were spectacular!! The kitchen was well appointed and she even had a shopping cart for our use. The apartment is on the 4th floor of a historic building and has an elevator; another reason for us to choose it. Around the corner from the apartment are several trattorias and a small grocery and one of the main streets is just a few meters away. It is very easy to get to any location in the center from this apartment. One of the best things about Bologna now is that on the weekends, three streets that form a T (Rizzoli, Ugo Bassi, and Independenzia) close and become pedestrian only. That is when the fun begins! There are street musicians everywhere, fairs for various reasons, and an electric atmosphere. There is always something going on at Piazza Maggiore!! And the apartment is across the street Rizzoli from the merriment!! When we return to Bologna in the future, you can rest assured that we will try to rent this apartment again!!

comfortable, great location, hostess next door

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was just as advertised, everything worked perfectly, the location is perfect for vacationers interested in historical buildings, art, and great local food. It was good to know the hostess lives next door (though there were no bad surprises that required calling her). We were greeted with wine and cake and cold bottled water - nice! - and shown around personally by our friendly hostess. Everything worked - the elevator, the bathroom fixtures, the stove. The decoration is classic "Italian" and home-like so we really felt like we were in a lovely Italian pied-a-terre, definitely not a cold hotel room. The dining table is by big windows with lovely views, a perfect place for a dinner at home with things picked up at the marvelous little food shops that are very nearby. Definitely recommend this apartment!

The most perfect location in Bologna!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location in the perfect apartment with the perfect host. Gabriella speaks fantastic English and could not have been friendlier. She lives right next door and was available for any need. She even brought me a bottle of wine at check in. She was so great in fact, that I'm renting one of her long term rentals. You can rent with no worries at all.

Luxury Flat in the historical Centre of Bologna

  • 5 of 5

The flat was elegant and spacious with high ceilings and characterful fixtures, fittings and furniture. It is perfectly located for exploring the glorious old town of Bologna and just a 10 minute bus ride to the train station for visits to beautiful surrounding towns: Modena, Ravenna, Rimini, Parma, Ferrara and Faenza. We would definitely recommend it to friends. There were two in our group, so it was an ideal size. There is a wealth of restaurants at all prices within a five minute walk and we never had a bad meal in Bologna. There were also fabulous shops selling meat, cheese, fresh fruit and veg for self-catering. We were met by the owner's representative who did not fully brief us on the availability of the advertised washing machine (actually situated in the basement), the operation of the motorised main front door or that the TV could be moved from the bedroom where we found it to the living room. However, when the owner arrived all of these issues were quickly resolved. It was nice to be greeted by a welcome pack of basic food plus a lovely big home made cake. All in all, great accommodation for our two week stay.

Delightful home from home

  • 5 of 5

I had a great week staying in this bright, clean and quiet apartment in a lovely old building right in the centre of Old Bologna. The owner responded quickly to all my queries and was there to meet me when I arrived. It was comfy and warm and as I was on my own I felt very safe with a secure access from the street. There was a welcome pack of basic foods too. I had a great time and it was very pleasant after a busy day to retreat to such a pleasant flat.
