A wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

We needed last minute accommodation in Bologna and chose Gabriella's place based on the photos. In fact, the apartment is even better than the pictures: it's spacious, gracious and charmingly decorated. Great views from every room and we appreciated the comfortable living, dining and bedroom areas.

We knew nothing about Bologna before our arrival but we were delighted to find that the apartment is in the centre of a most interesting city, which we enjoyed discovering in the month we lived there.

The "welcome" cake was a nice gesture from our lovely hostess, who was kind and helpful. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Perfect location - great host!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our apartment rental from Gabriella! First, she was very quick to respond to all of my inquiries during the booking process. As our date got closer, she kept in touch making sure we knew exactly what to tell our taxi driver and we were given her number and also a second phone number if we had any trouble. She was not able to meet us that day, but had someone (Saman – great guy!) there who showed us everything we needed, and Gabriella came the next morning to meet us and answer any additional questions that we had. Gabriella had baked us an extremely delicious bread/cake, and there was coffee, water, juice and milk.

The apartment has 3 Juliet balconies – which was a nice surprise. We had no problem with noise, the elevator was fast (thankfully Saman showed us how to work the elevator since it’s nothing like any American elevator I’ve seen) and the location was absolutely fantastic. The apartment is loaded with large windows so the natural lighting was great (and easy to use electronic shades). The shower is a little small – think cruise ship size, but we didn’t have an issue (and the 3 of us are tall). The only real problem that we had is that the washing machine is not in the apartment and we usually depend on doing laundry when we are away. Heating and cooling worked great – and we did need both since it was warm during the day and got cooler at night.

Gabriella was available for us during our entire stay. She helped (thank goodness!!) arrange a taxi pick up at the apartment to get us back to the airport on our departure. Again, it was a wonderful stay in Bologna!!

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.
