Beatrice Bed & Breakfast

Reviewed 16 September 2011

Very bad experience. When I booked a room, I had no other option than to take the room for four, even though I was just looking for a single one. Not a real problem. The room had two single beds and one double. However, I wasn’t allowed to sleep in a double bed, although I had paid the full price for the room! Also, the whole apartment smells like cheap cigars and the name of the B&B, Beatrice, is a bit misleading. I only saw a grumpy old man. Never again!

We apologize, first of all, if the answer was not timely, but we were not aware of our presence on this site.
From now on we'll reply to all messages that are both, positive or negative.
Our B & B accomplishes this year, twelve years, during this period we have had thousands of visitors, many of them loyal customers who occasionally come back to visit us or write to us.
Now you do not count the positive testimonials we collect from them almost daily, directly from their voice and their eyes, while they are pleasantly impressed by the hospitality by our breakfast, from a view that the successful placement of our B & B can offer, from the comfort and cleanliness of our rooms, etc..
We are surprised and sorry to find on this site your negative reviews, perhaps dictated by expectations beyond our offer, but as every report we intend to keep it and use it to further improve our offer.
The room offered, the only free, although it was for four people and was paid as a single, wanting to use the double bed is possible for a minimal difference.
It may happen that the guests, who make an overnight stay, they should see one or the other owner, Beatrice is delighted to welcome a future occasion.

Stayed here for one night in June , rang the owner before and asked how much a single room for 1 person would cost, the owner quoted me 50 euros but asked for 60 on the door. Also asked about wifi and they gave me some bad excuse why they don't have an open one and then said go to the terrace and use someone else's ( which is illegal) . Had to be out by 10 didnt see any of bologna after that as I had my bags , what a waste of time and money.

The prices are published on our site, exposed in every guestroom and reported annually to the competent authority. Our B & B is in the center where it is possible to connect free wifi Municipality of Bologna.
After check-out you can leave your bags in the living room and then pick them up after 5:00 pm.

Beatrice and Roberto were excellent hosts. It is located on the beautiful Via Indipendenze above the covered shops. One of the two best bed and breakfasts we have stayed at over the 38 years of travel. (the other is Glenferness in Robertsbridge, England) We are returning to Beatrice B&B on March 19,2009. It was all we needed in a B&B and it actually had the BBC in English, which was a change from the norm in Italy.

I booked this B & B before we left the states. The only pictures I saw was from their website.... Its on the top floor with a decent view.

That's the only thing nice I can say about it. The rooms claim to have air conditioning. They have a hose hanging out the open window bringing in hot air... 'trying' to cool it off. Plus, You must keep the ac off during the day while you are gone.

And you must be gone. They will be going to work from 9:30-5. No one is allowed to stay in the rooms past 9:15 (very unusual). We wanted to come back for the siesta when the stores closed but we were out of luck. "You can go sit in the park down the road" (I hope the temperature is lower than 80 degrees).

We also had an ant problem. Ants in our suitcases, clothes, bed... The owner would come in and try to vacuum the ants off the floor, leaving them in our suitcases, bags and bed.

DId I mention, the view was decent and so was the breakfast?

Our B & B has been completely renovated in 2007 and now all rooms have their own bathroom and air conditioning.
It is our practice to give the keys of the house to anyone who requests after payment of the accommodation and the deposit of 50 € will be refunded on return of keys.
We hope to have you as our guest next time.
