“Don't search elsewhere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2012

Once more in Bologna and since the hotel that we usually stay had pretty high rates for the dates that we were interested, we tried Ariosto.

Excellent choice! Residenza Ariosto is located in the center of Bologna. The studio that they accommodated us was more than spacious with a huge bathroom. Much bigger than any other studio I’ve ever stayed in. They cleaned the rooms daily. Franko, was absolutely wonderful! He helped us with the luggage (the apartments are on the first floor and there is an elevator) and with anything else we asked him. The price was unbeatable! Especially in Bologna is not possible to have that quality of accommodation for not more than 54 Euros per night. Best value for money I’ve ever seen! We will be back!

Apartament was huge and spacious. Fully furnished with big kitchen. You have there fridge, microwave, oven, plates and other. Hotel is close to Piazza Maggiore where you can eat breakfast outside and some small shops where you can buy wine and food. Service was perfect and very nice. The way from railway station to Residenza Ariosto is simple. I recommend you this with a clear conscience. Price is really good.

The apartments were walking distance from the train station, the main street and all of the major sites. Our studio apartment was spacious and well equipped with all the amenities and included a washing machine which was a definite plus. The view looked out onto the street which was noisy and was right above a restaurant (excellent food by the way) but once the windows are closed it shuts the noise out. A/C, toiletries, iron and portable hanger were available but the towels were extremely hard and rough....other than that our stay was great and for $50 euros a night it was unbeatable.

Located right in the heart of the city, there are six small apartments offered to visitors. I stayed, on two separate occasions, in Rooms 3 and 6. Room 6 was located overlooking the rear courtyard and had a separate bedroom, kitchen/lounge and bathroom. Masses of space and extremely comfortable. On my second stay I had a room at the front of the property but had no issues with any noise from the street. The apartments are brilliantly equipped with full kitchen facilities, washing machines in the bathrooms, ironing boards, sofa beds, fridges and so on. The apartments aren't staffed 24/7 so you are given keys to the complex. Bologna is a wonderful city full of interesting sights. Highly recommended.

A full-equipped, two-bedroom apartment for less than $150-a-night during peak travel season? Maybe because its Bologna, which is not a popular tourist destination. Franco, the owner, does an amazing job and was eager to please. The place was spacious, comfortable and conveniently located in central Bologna off the Via Independenzia and close to major shopping. The kitchen was even equipped with coffee and two types of espresso makers. However, the milk-foamer on the fancier one was broken. And my only criticism is we ran out of hot water after only two showers because the hot water tank is pretty small, looked to be only 20 gallons or so.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the inside courtyard. If your room faces the street, you may be treated to som...
