Overview

Bologna City Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms + living room + 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 7-8. Large, bright apartment

This beautiful, roomy, bright apartment is part of a brand new (February 2008) residential building situated in a spacious, well-served area facing a green and shady park, a small museum right on its side and plenty of little traditional stores in the vicinity. With the city center, the railroad station and the Fiera District at walking distance, a newly-built shopping mall with an indoor swimming pool, a gym, bars, restaurants, stores and shops of all kind just around the corner, Al Parco qualifies as one of the most convenient rentals in Bologna. From here you can easily reach any spot in town: the bus stop is right by about 40 mts. and private parking is provided in the yard, which is completely fenced and 100% safe for the kids.

The apartment is a first floor (elevator) and overlooks the park with a very large (30 sq.mts.) terrace which makes a great spot for your alfresco dining (garden furniture is provided).

From our reviews (1): 'We have returned to Taiwan yesterday. Al Parco was the perfect location for us because it is within walking distance to the fairground. We would also wish to stay Al Parco for the next exhibit. Thank you so much for all the assistance from you and Ken.' (James L., Taiwan]

'Un appartement idéal parfaitement entretenu, très confortable et très moderne, une grande terrasse où l'on peut se détendre et se restaurer. il est également très bien situé : proche du centre des congrès et aussi du centre ville, nous avons donc fait tous nos déplacements à pied. la propriétaire est une personne charmante qui nous avait préparé le nombre de lits nécessaires et nous avait préparé une corbeille de fruits pour notre arrivée.' (Sebastien L., France)

'Facilidad para aparcar y buena comunicación al centro. El apartamento está muy cuidado y limpio.' (Amalia G., Spain)

From our reviews (2): 'The facility was spotlessly clean, very well supplied with amenities, in a new building of the highest quality construction and a very convienient location to transportation, groceries, shopping, and restaurants. The owners could not have been more gracious in their hospitality and helpfulness.' (Rev. Michael D., USA)

'We stayed at Al Parco apartment for a week at the end of July and we would just like to let you know that we had a wonderful time! The apartment is spacious and has so many fantastic facilities - and thank you very much for the all the delicious food! The location was perfect, as we were able to walk to the bus stop in 1 minute, and the supermarket was just down the street. Silvio was also very accommodating. He made sure that we knew how all of the appliances worked and even told us information about Bologna. Thank you also for the bus ticket. Thank you again, we will definitely recommend your apartment to anyone who is traveling to Bologna.' (Bianca P., Australia)

From our reviews (3): 'My husband and I travel to Europe once or twice a year, and can honestly say that the accommodations at Al Parco were the best we've ever experienced. Not only is the apartment immaculate and large, but the owner and her husband went far beyond our expectations to provide us with the information and supplies we would need during our stay (even beverages and snacks!). The area is so convenient. There is an excellent supermarket right across the street, a great bakery for morning coffee and pastry a 5 minute walk away, and a bus that brings you right to the center of town. The area does not feel touristy at all, you can really relax and feel at home. One of our favorite things about our stay was the large terrace - every day we made it a must-do to spend some time sitting outside. The light within the apartment is lovely too, especially soothing in the afternoonin after a long day of walking the city. For us, Al Parco has set a new standard for an apartment rental' (Neala, USA)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Appartamento molto attrezzato, curato nei minimi particolari, situato in zona fiera a Bologna. Abbiamo trascorso un soggiorno indimenticabile, peccato che il tempo sia stato inclemente, pioggia tutti i giorni costringendoci a rimanere in questo splendido appartamento, godendo di tutti i suoi comfort. I proprietari sono stati gentilissimi, sicuramente torneremo al più presto.

Italy Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 5 days in July 2009 and were totally impressed with this condo. The size of the rooms was very large and everything seemed recently renovated. The outside terrace ran the length of the condo, making it also very spacious.
The condo was situated in what appears to be a recently built development. The landscaping also seems recent. Outdoor parking was gated, very secure. We used the condo as a springboard for day trips to Florence, Venice, etc., and of course Bologna. In Bologna, all interesting spots were a short bus ride away, very convenient.
The owner, Paola, was very welcoming and helpful. She even provided complimentary bus tickets, bottle of wine/beer, fruit baskets....WOW! A North American style supermarket is a 5 min walk away.
Overall our family was extremely satisfied and would definitely return next time we’re in Italy.
Grazie Paola.

12 Days in Wonderful Bologna Apartment

  • 5 of 5
Our 12 day stay in this beautiful apartment overlooking the park began with a welcoming greeting from the owner and her daughter. They couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. There was a delicious dessert and a great bottle of wine waiting on us. The apartment is extremely clean and well decorated providing everything you would need. You cannot beat the location with grocery stores, restaurants and the bus stop within a 2 minute walk. The train station was a short bus top away or a 15 minute walk which allowed us to take multiple day trips to other cities, i.e. Venice, Parma, Modena, Ravena and Ferra. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to visit Bologna and if we were to ever get back there would make this our first choice of accommodations.

A Great Experience

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed in Paola’s apartment for about a week. It is 15 min walk to the city center, a bus stop right by the building if you don’t want to walk. It took us 15 min to get to the airport. We were very close to the highway for our excursions outside of Bologna. The building is very secure and so is the parking for the car. We’ve been renting apartments instead of staying in hotels while vacationing for the last couple years. This place was one of the best ones we’ve stayed in. It felt like home. Paola’s focus on detail showed everywhere in the house which was very nicely furnished and decorated. Paola is a wonderful and generous host. Amenities like coffee, soap, shampoo, etc., were provided! She welcomed us with a delicious desert, panna cotta, and a bottle of Prosecco chilling in the fridge. There are many travel books/guides inside the apartment and high speed WiFi if you want to do research on-line. The owners also wrote their own guides including the restaurants recommendations. We dined in two of their recommended places and they were excellent. I highly recommend this apartment.

Wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this really beautiful and comfortable apartment! It is spotlessly clean, tastefully furnished and decorated,so well-equipped to satisfy all your needs. It has bright spacious rooms and a large sunny terrace ideal for outdoor relaxing and dining. It is a real "home away from home"!
We really enjoyed our time there: the location is great, we walked everywhere (the old center is about 10 minutes' walk and Piazza Maggiore is 20-25).
Bologna has so many interesting things to see and it is perfect for visits to places around (we went to Ravenna-fantastic mosaics-and Verona).
A special thank you to Paola, the owner, who gave us a warm welcome and was very attentive and helpful during our stay.
We couldn't have been happier!

Most Gracious and Generous Hosts

  • 5 of 5
Everything you read here about this apartment is true: it's spotlessly clean, tastefully furnished, has bright spacious rooms, large sunny terrace for outdoor dining, parking if you need it, very well stocked with everything you'll need…and more!
What makes this rental truly exceptional is the care and attention you'll receive from Paola and Ken. They are the most thoughtful, generous and gracious hosts you'll ever meet. They do whatever it takes to make your visit memorable and meaningful, yet respect your privacy and value your time. Any minor issues that may arise are dealt with promptly and thoroughly. They'll help you take advantage of everything this wonderful city has to offer and provide information about local and regional events, bus and rail schedules, their favorite pasticceria, best pizzeria... whatever you need, and so much more.
We were long-term guests here throughout last winter and yes, it was a home away from home in so many ways; mostly we loved it because of the care and attention we received from our hosts. Throughout our long stay, Paola and Ken helped us arrange doctor visits, fill prescriptions, translate for medical specialists, procure concert tickets, take drives and hikes in the surrounding hills, visit nearby historic towns. Because of their hospitality, Bologna will forever have a special place in our hearts. They could not have been more gracious.

Wonderful Bologna apartment

  • 5 of 5
We found that everything written in the various reviews was absolutely correct. It was an attractive, convenient rental that really was "a home away from home". Paola had thought of many ways to welcome her guests from delicious homemade panna cotta to the wine and beer and bread and jam which awaited us. If there was an award for "Best Home Away Hosts" these folks would win in a moment. Ken even took our mobile phone and was able to get it working for us after trips to the provider and to a techie. We truly appreciated everything and can unreservedly recommend this property.
