Perfect location though in a noisy bar street) Spaciuos and clean. The only things that I didn't like besides the minibar as expensive as in 5 star hotels - broken shower knob in the tiny shower cabin, and that you must completely clean the kitchen after you or pay for the cleaning.If you're not standartized hotel network - better have all services included even at higher price and not bother clients with variety of small bills.

Great place to stay with friends or family, perfect location and very helpful staff: thank you Franco!
Good price too.
We loved Bologna and will travel there again, and book our studio at Residenza Ariosto.

Room Tip: Marsala street is a bit noisy at night (pub just downstairs), so try to get a bedroom that isn't on that side (although we had no trouble sleeping at all, windows open)

I loved this place! I stayed in a one bedroom apartment with a full kitchen for 3 nights and it was spacious and comfortable, clean and close to everything. However, the best part was the service from Franco... he is there to meet you, helps with your luggage then gives you some insight into the city and where you should see and visit (and even recommends some restaurants in a city full of great places to dine).

It was VERY hot when I arrived in Bologna and the air conditioning was such a welcome relief. Another great feature of staying here is its proximity to everything.... the sights of the city, restaurants, a supermarket (if you stay in an apartment) and shopping (if you want).
I could not recommend this place highly enough to anyone who visits Bologna... it is not 5 star but it is welcoming, comfortable, convienient and most of all... friendly and accomodating. If I could change one thing it would be the towels... they really need updating or bring your own.

But....I would love to go back one day! Thank you !!

Room Tip: Staying in a one bedroom place is great... but I don't know what the hotel rooms are like.

Our apartment number was 6. The room was on the first floor. There is a lift but it is small, maybe for two people. On our arrival the person at the desk carried our luggage up, and down on departure. He was friendly and helpful. The apartment is on a quiet street without a lot of foot or car traffic and was generally quiet during the day and night.

The kitchen was well equipped, with coffee machine and dishwasher. There were pots and pans to cook a meal, plus dishes and cutlery to eat your meal. A good sized dining table that seats four people.

The lounge is part of the dining area with two large sofas. There was plenty of natural light in all the rooms during the day. All the rooms are large and comfortable.

The bedroom had large wardrobes and plenty drawers to stow away luggage. The bed was comfortable. Two singles joined together as one. The TV was in the bedroom, a small flat screen with a DVD player connected. Our room also had a babies cot for our 4 month old. It was supplied with linen.

The bathroom was large and had a front load washing machine. A clothes rack to dry your clothes on would have been helpful. We used the large towel rack, which in winter would have been heated.

The free wifi worked well from the kitchen dining area, but wasn't usable from the bedroom.

Franco is a fantastic host, the apartment is spacious, clean and tidy with everything you need. We arrived early in the morning and Franco had our room ready for us. The apartment could not be in a better position for everything in Bologna. The perfect city break. We will definitely return and would stay at Franco's apartment. Franco spoke good English and was very helpful with lots of great recommendations for places to see and do etc.

Room Tip: Room 6 is great with a fabulous big window looking into a courtyard
