We are very fortunate to have just spent a week in Bologna for the first time and hit the jackpot by renting this apartment. Firstly the location cannot be any better being just a few minutes walk from anywhere you may want to see, excepting the Sanctuary of San Luca which is about 4kms away but you can see it from the fabulous roof terrace of the apartment! The views from the terrace are wonderful and it is a very nice place to idle away an hour or two. You may have to climb up quite a few stairs to get to this apartment but is is definitely worth it for the views from the roof. The apartment is very well equipped and beautifully decorated and has an extremely comfortable bed. The owners, Maria Christina and Gastone are so very friendly and helpful without being intrusive in any way. They will help you if you want it and just want to be sure you are comfortable and enjoying your stay. They left us a very welcome bottle of local wine in the fridge. The rooms are light and airy and there is very efficient air conditioning if it is required. Bologna is a great city to visit, easy to negotiate with amazing food, wine and people. Loved our stay.
This beautiful apartment exceeded all expectations. It provided a wonderfully relaxing retreat with spectacular views. The apartment is on three levels and contains everything you need - from the double basins in the bathroom, the capacious shower with plenty of hot water to the comfort of the bed enabling deep slumber with air conditioning as necessary. The kitchen was well equipped and included attractive utensils and china. Cooking in the apartment was very pleasurable. The lounge is spacious,light and airy. The roof garden is a joy to behold the incredible views or to enjoy the peace of the darkness with the moon and the stars. This apartment has been given 5 stars by Trip Advisor and really merits this.
Marie Christine and her husband Gaston are most hospitable hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Bologna is an amazing place to visit with so many rich treasures and this apartment is very centrally located making it the perfect place to stay whilst in this city.
This apartment is in a great location. One block to the store. A couple of blocks to restaurants. There is wonderful roof top deck we enjoyed every night with a glass of wine. As noted there are three flights of stairs to climb.
Wow - what a beautiful appartment, right in the centre of Bologna. The location is perfect, and every aspect of it is perfect - the bathroom, the bedroom, the living room, the kitchen (yes, it's that spacious) are just lovely - and to top it all there is a roof terrace with glorious views over to San Luca. And it's totally quiet - no rooms are anywhere near any roads and so you get a lovely quiet night.
And our host, Maria Cristina communicates very very well and is ever so friendly and her husband showed us round the place on arrival.
The only point to note is that the appartment is on the 3rd floor and there is no lift.
So as long as the stairs are no issue, stay here if you visit Bologna!!!
This is a lovely apartment - having everything that you may need. It was light, comfortable, airy and everything was spotlessly clean. It is also in a great location - near to everything but away from more touristy parts. The roof top terrace was fantastic with beautiful views over the city - the furniture on the terrace allows you to dine or sunbathe.
Maria Cristina is a most charming and helpful host, and she always responded quickly to any queries via text.
In the apartment there are numerous books, guides and information regarding Bologna
We have stayed in many apartments in Italy and this is one of the best. We highly recommend it to anyone visiting Bologna - it would also be a good base to explore the other wonderful towns of Emilia Romagna.
Thank you so much Maria Cristina
I arrived with two friends of mine over the weekend 1. May.
Already before we started our Journey Maria Christina was very helpful on contacting me.
When we arrived she and her husband welcomed us very warmly and helpful!
The appartment is very clean and cozy and the rooftop the highlight! We enjoyed our stay a lot and got back to the appartment for some breaks its really perfectly located to reach everything by walking.
Just only be aware that the third person sleeps in the living room which might prevent you from going upstairs in the morning. ;)
I would definitly recommend this place and would get back myself.
