OLYMPIA - CLASS AND QUALITY IN THE VERY HEART OF BOLOGNA'S HISTORICAL CENTER

Bologna City Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps up to 4 adults + 1 child. 2 bathrooms. Loft.

The features making our apartment a real winner amongst the top rentals in Bologna are many. First, its quality – Olympia is part of one of the most beautiful and elegant patrician palaces in this Italian capital of gourmet food, night life and fashion and was completely refurbished in 2011 with the exclusive use of top quality materials. Add the absolute quiet of a 1500’s inner courtyard all windows overlook, its design furniture and furnishing chosen with love and zest, its position in the very heart of Bologna’s historical center, the quiet and elegant Via Castiglione bordered with the best quality shops, stores, restaurants etc. and served by a very efficient public transportation system with all stops nearby. As a result, an extremely prestigious and comfortable apartment, by far the right choice for the traveller visiting Bologna for tourism, business, conventions, trade exhibits and more. All for a very competitive price when compared to properties in the same range.

Olympia (about 90 square meters in size, second floor with elevator) is a light and bright, charming, extremely clean and cozy apartment, class and atmosphere the key words. An elegant hallway and a patrician staircase both reminiscent of the great Renaissance Bologna, a gate and a sturdy safety door, a view over the dome of St. Domenico Cathedral and the red roofs of Bologna offer the guest total safety, ambiance and pure enjoyment. One of the oldest and most celebrated osterias in town is right around the corner for your night fun and gourmet pleasure. Parking is available at a nearby public, guarded lot.

As for its layout, Olympia is composed by a large, bright room with dining and living areas, the latter featuring a great Zironi couch and a select design, brand new sofa bed that can easily and comfortably accommodate two. A very large loft with a skylight window and own en-suite bathroom can accommodate two additional persons in a large double bed. Both the sofa bed and the double bed have very firm frames and mattresses. All linen (bathroom, kitchen, bed) are first quality and provided at no additional charge.

A very efficient kitchen with all tools provided separates the abovementioned spaces from a bathroom, which, not differently from the one upstairs, is being kept immaculate and thoroughly sanitized after each stay. The apartment features a washing machine, a dishwasher, a large flat screen tv set, top quality dishes, pottery, glassware and all the accessories one needs for a practical, comfortable stay. Olympia is air conditioned and heated by a very efficient timer-operated heat pump system. An internet wifi connection is provided at no extra charge.

We look forward to having you with us soon.

About Paola

I am a psychologist conducting professional practice in Bologna and renting out this apartment and a villa on the coast on a short term basis. Both properties have been remodelled and furnished with an idea in mind - make them the most comfortable home away from home for you and all our dear guests.

Paola purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Paola chose Bologna City

We fell in love with this apartment at the first sight. It was light-filled, roomy, with a nice view, located in the best section of the Historical Center and very, very quiet.

This lovely, quiet, well-appointed apartment is the perfect place to stay in Bologna for business or pleasure. The owner has taken pains to make it both comfortable and elegant. My stay was lovely; the apartment was quiet and clean and had everything I needed. The owners even graciously helped me one late night when I had locked myself out. I heartily recommend this apartment, especially for couples. I'll be back next year -- unless someone reading this has snatched it up first.

a month in Bologna

  • 5 of 5
I stayed a month is this lovely apartment. It's central, silent and cozy. The owners are super helpful and everything you need is there for you.
It's on a lovely, historic street a hop and a skip to the main piazza (Maggiore) of the city. I highly recommend this apartment.

Perfect stay in Bologna

  • 5 of 5
We spent 11 nights in the Olympia apartment over the Christmas holidays and would give this location a top rating. The place was cozy, comfortable, well equipped, secure, and especially convenient for walking to the historic center of Bologna. Located on the top floor of a marvelous updated palazzo, the studio apartment is constructed with an open loft with full bath, while the "downstairs" features a sitting area, eating area, kitchen with dishwasher, and half-bath. A bonus was the presence of a small washing machine off the kitchen. We did not use the foldout couch, but the extra bath was very nice to have. The bed in the loft was very comfortable, and the linens were plentiful and of very nice quality. Obviously the owner cares to make renters comfortable and happy. Renters may want to know that there are a lot of stairs up to the apartment, but there is a small elevator for hauling suitcases and groceries. Apart from the excellent location, we liked best the sense of space and comfort, along with quiet so near the city center. A possible improvement would be the installation of an armoire in the loft--closets were all downstairs, and there wasn't really any place to put clothes in the loft area. This was on balance a rather small inconvenience. I would not really suggest this apartment for more than 2 adults for any length of time, as there is not much privacy between loft and downstairs--everything is open. However, the downstairs bathroom does offer real convenience if more than 2 people stay here. It would certainly work well for a family of 3 or 4, if kids could share the couch. The area is full of lovely little cafes, shops and some upscale restaurants. Plus a fairly new supermarket, Coop, around the corner at intersection of Via Farini and Santo Stefano--all very convenient and charming. Famous Sorbetteria Castiglione just a few blocks away with adjacent chocolate store, all to die for.

Perfect location, perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have asked for a better location! The Olympia is perfectly located (even near the city's best gelateria, which is critical for two children!). We were able to walk most everywhere - and yet had easy access to the buses to the train station. We loved the city, it had tons of charm and wonderul hidden gems - and we know part of what made the stay so great was having the Olympia to return to every day. The apartment worked wonderfully for our family of 4. Our boys loved their "space" downstairs, and we loved retiring to the loft.

The apartment is beautifully appointed, little details are noted and cared for. We had a wonderful welcome pastry which the boys loved, and we very much enjoyed meeting Paola and getting to know the city.

We highly recommend the Olympia to anyone!

Excellent choice

  • 5 of 5
The Olympia proved to be an excellent choice for our one-week stay in Bologna. The location is perfect, right in the center of the city, a few minutes from Piazza Maggiore and walking distance to all the major sites. The apartment, recently renovated, lived up to the description. Everything worked perfectly and the bed was better than most I've found in Italy. Paola greeted us at the apartment and answered all our questions clearly and patiently. Having spent two years in Bologna as a student many years ago, I'm familiar with the city and I can't imagine a better choice, for location and amenities. It was a pleasure to stay at the Olympia and I highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Larry! Having been a student in Bologna and back this July 2012 - well, this makes a Bolognese of you. So to the next time, hopefully soon - to even better enjoy the apartment and this great, fun city. All the best, Paola

Excellent stay - Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5
Good size apartment, light and bright, perfect for 3-4, extra clean and elegant, comfortable, quiet and perfectly located in the center of Bologna - no need for a car. Excellent quality beds with firm mattresses and frames, fully stocked kitchen. Definitely the perfect accommodation, highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thanks a lot. I particularly appreciated your note about the firm beds - mattresses and frames. When I remodeled the apartment (it used to be my own studio) I paid particular attention to comfort and details. I spent a considerable amount of money on all that, but honestly believe Olympia is now one of the best accommodation in Bologna. Come back soon! Ciao, Paola.
