This was our second stay in Italy, our first was on Trento and a lovely experience. Upon arrival the outside of the building did not look clean and tidy, I was pretty surprised based on the inside pics. Sabrina arrived and was very helpful, she sold us a bus pass so we could go downtown, the inside of the house smelled of cigarettes. The shower was a lot to be desired as it leaked on the floor when you showered based on the curtain setup. There was not really an outdoor space to enjoy it was more like a cell with bars that was screened in. It served our purpose but I don’t believe I would book this home again. The linens were clean and so was the home.
You booked 2 nights at September and you started messaging me over 3 weeks before your stay asking me a certain amount of tourist informations.
I counted on whatsapp over 120 messages (in and out). Your messages were arriving at any time of the day and of the night, also while I was on holiday, and I always did my best to answer your questions, send you links, make researches for you, and be welcoming and kind.
The apartment was top cleaned as usual.
Smoking in the apartment is forbidden but there is a balcony where smoking is possible.
The previous guests were smokers, so there might be some smell left, but you could simply manage it, opening any of the 8 windows of the apartment.
You also said that outside it wasn't clean but both the building and the street are supposed to be cleaned once a week. You came in September when the leaves fall from the trees, and there are a lot of trees in front of the apartment. Sorry for that.
Window railings in Italy are very common but I understand in the USA you don't need them, since you have other laws and security measures. Anyway, the railings could be opened, if you just asked me..
Also architecture in USA is very different, so probably you live in a pretty house in California and when you go in a city suburb in Italy, you have buildings and apartments that may not meet your taste. I am sorry for that, but Bologna can't compete with USA standards because we have a lot of urbanistic issues, rules and limits.
You can have nice houses in Italy but most of them are in the country and have prices very different from Bologna Rainbow House.
I think I didn't deserve a 2 stars review. When I saw it, I tought it was a mistake, since I hadn't read your comment yet. You said it was a mistake and you would have fix it but you didn't, and now I read the reasons I understand why.
I think that it is important that people like you understand that this is not the right place where you can be happy, so thank you for your comment and for your empathy.
Have a nice day
Bologna Rainbow House
Un logement sympa, propre et bien équipé
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans cet appartement propre, agréable et bien équipé.
Nous avons fait nos courses à pied car les commerces sont très proches. Plusieurs lignes de bus passent près du logement, ce qui permet de se rendre dans le centre ville de Bologne et ne pas avoir le problème de stationnement. Sabrina nous a accueilli très chaleureusement et nous a fourni tous les renseignements utiles à notre séjour. La proximité de l'aéroport ne nous a posé aucun problème.
Confortable apartment close to Bologna centre
We stay last days of December and first days of January in this flat in the sorrundings of Bologna. The appartment is confortable and exactly as the pictures describe. We were 4 persons, two young people and 2 adults and the space was wide. The kitchen was well equiped. The flat is 15 min by car to the centre of the city. It is also possible to arrive by bus. Is quite convenient for visiting other towns and cities in the surroundings. The owner Sabrina is helpful with all our requirements.
Thank you very much for your kind review! It's been a pleasure for me to host you, as you are a wonderful family! Thank you for choosing Bologna Rainbow House! I wish you all the best! Sabrina Dini
