Mua is a great alternative to the standard city hotel concept. Housed in an old palazzo in the city centre, it's interior is slick and modern and yet because of its layout and small number of rooms, gives u a feeling of being at home. The owner or manager umberto is there to greet u and gives u all the information you need about bologna and when not around is just a call away for whatever you need. I found him extremely helpful and it is this personal touch that makes a difference. He recommended good restaurants, art galleries and the best sights to see. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are great! The breakfast is good, continental style but nothing fancy. It is true there are few tables for about seven rooms but we never had to wait for a table. I thought this was a great little place to stay in bologna. Everything is literally on your doorstep and within walking distance. Great place!

The Mua is close to the center of town and on a quiet street. It is in a neighborhood with a distinct character that is not as touristy as hotels in the center of town. You really don't give up any conveniences at this BB. Friendly staff, comfy and a decent rate. Recommeded!!

A great place close to everything. Rooms were of a good size and had everything you could need. On arrival Umberto the host gave us a great overview of the city and suggested some great places to eat. Overall an excellent stay.

From the minute you walk in, the design tells you that the owners have a refined aesthetic. The dottore and her architect husband made great use of the space and their minimalist approach gives the traveler a quiet and tranquil room for relaxation after a long day of exploring this charming city. The bus from the airport left us less than 2 blocks from MUA. The rooms were meticulously clean, the shower had plenty of hot water and the breakfast was plentiful.

Room Tip: MUA is on a very quiet side street in the centro storico, so all rooms are good.

Just returned from a 3 night stay in Mua. It was our first stay in a B & B and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We were glad that we had taken a taxi from the airport as even the taxi driver looked a little puzzled when we pulled up outside the door saying Domus,
We were met by the charming Umberto who showed us a map with all the main sights and told us about breakfast etc, gave us the room card that got us in the main door and into our room. The room is very minimal in style, which was what attracted us. It has everything that you would need. Air conditioning and safe all worked perfectly. The bathroom was modern and had everything that you needed. Beds were firm but comfortable, Breakfast was nice, usual Italian breakfast,with lovely fresh squeezed orange and pastries.
We found it an easy walk into all the main sights, in fact Bologna is a very easily walkable city. You could see everything in a day if you didn't have time, We had read about the covered walkways but had no idea just how many of the streets would be like that. They were beautiful and if you are into shopping there is certainly plenty of opportunity for some window shopping.
Mua lies between Via San Felice & Via del Pratello. At night Via del Pratello totally comes alive. There's just a buzz of voices. We ate dinner all 3 nights at 3 different places and had a lovely meal each time. There were bars a plenty so we never felt the need to go further at night,
Having walked a lot of the historical centre we certainly realised we had picked the right place to stay.

Stayed at Muà whilst attending a conference in Bologna. Whilst technically a B&B it is a far reach from any traditional B&B I have ever stayed in. The proprietor Uberto's brother is an architect and was responsible for the gorgeous modern minimalist interior design of Muà. It's a perfect counterpoint to the stunning traditional more ornate environment you'll find outside in the Bologna public buildings and churches.

Uberto was a most congenial and helpful host.

Breakfast is the traditional continental affair with a good choice of sliced meats and cheeses. Cereals, tea and coffee and orange juice is freshly squeezed at the breakfast bar.

The bedroom was beautifully styled and all the facilities were top notch. The bed was firm and comfortable and the uncluttered elegant decoration together with being in a quiet street makes for a perfect nights sleep.

I rather enjoyed doing away with the traditional elaborate hotel entrance and facilities that one has no use for and instead having a very simple and beautiful place to stay.

A perfect stay! (see pictures)

Not easy to join by car, but very well located in Bologna.
Great welcome by Umberto and Gita.
Nice interior, good bed, well working airco.
Breakfast very ok.
Just beware for the staircase if you have physical limitations or heavy bags !
