The location of this apartment is perfect: a short walk to the city center, yet far enough away that driving and parking is not a problem. The apartment itself has everything one needs for a few days in and around Bologna, and Antonio and his parents could not have been more helpful or thoughtful. We were a party of three, a couple and a single traveler, so the two bedrooms and two baths were just right. We used the apartment as our base for trips to visit the parmigiano- and prosciutto-making artisans near Parma, an acetaio near Modena, the Ferrari factory in Maranello, and the UNESCO mosaics in Ravenna—all a short drive away. Antonio’s apartment will be my first choice of lodging when I return!
We were met by Antonio's charming parents who explained how everything worked and how to get to the station and the centre of town.
The apartment is immaculate and had everything we needed for our 6 day trip. Two bedrooms with air conditioning, 2 shower rooms (perfect with 2 teenage daughters), a living/dinning room also with air conditioning and a fully-equipped kitchen meant that we had everything we needed for the 4 of us to have a relaxed time.
We planned on taking day trips by train to Ferrara, Parma and Ravenna and being a 5 minutes walk from the station was very handy. The centre of the city is about a 10-15 minutes walk, most of it under the beautiful arcades that Bologna is famous for. The arcades were really useful as the temperature hit 40C in the afternoon.
Bologna is a great city and the apartment made our stay very, very comfortable.
Staying 3 nights in Bologna as part of a longer European holiday. We needed accommodation for a couple and a single and did not need the amenities of a big hotel or the cost of booking two rooms. Antonio's apartment was ideal for us. Compact but well provided living area and kitchen, two double bedrooms (one could be a twin or accommodate a child) and two bathrooms. Location is a short walk from city centre and only 5 minutes from station. We got a great welcome from Antonio's family and explanation of how everything worked. Would stay here again if visiting Bologna
We rented the apartment for a Trade Fair on the outskirts of Bologna. The apartment could not have been better located for us. Just a few minute’s walk from the train station and an easy 15-minute walk to down town. The owner Angelo could not have been more helpful with the booking and the reception we received from his parents when we arrived was heart-warming. The apartment was spotlessly clean and has all the facilities you need for a very comfortable stay. This is an easy 5-star award to a lovely family and excellent apartment.
We stayed for 3 nights as part of our holiday in Tuscany as we were visiting the David Bowie Exhibition. The apartment is perfect, really well located near the station so easy to get to and from the airport and not far to walk into the centre of Bologna. We managed to get a parking space near the apartment which was great, and had we looked at the ticket properly we'd have realised you could pay for more than 1 day at a time! High spec in the apartment, beds really comfortable and good facilities. The only thing you need to take is shampoo and shower products. It was great that we were provided with some basic food provisions. Recommendations for nearby restaurants were accurate. Bologna its self is an amazing city and wouldn't hesitate to go back and travel out by train to Modena and Parma.
