first class accommodation in a central area

  • 5 of 5

we found the apartment to be as described in the listing.the fixtures,fittings and content probably nearly new.the efficient air conditioning was useful at times when the weather was warm.if you encountered a hot spell it would be a big plus.raffaella was friendly and helpful.

10 minutes walk to piazza maggoire and the centre of town.also some 15/20 minutes walk to railway station.from there we were able to undertake easy day trips to parma,modena,ravenna,ferrara and spent an afternoon in imola.the rest of the holiday spent enjoying time in bologna itself.

should we be looking at a return visit to bologna we would have no hesitation in coming back to raffaella's apartment.

Very clean, modern and spacious one bed room apartment centrally located to everything in Bologna.

  • 5 of 5

Raffaella was a very gracious host and had everything organized upon arrival including information on local restaurants and attractions. The apartment was clean with everything necessary for the stay. It is centrally located just four blocks from the historic center and in the general downtown area with grocery stores and shopping outside the door. There is a lot of night life, restaurants and activities at hand. What makes Bologna attractive is it's central location in northern Italy. The main train station is only a 15 minute walk away from which you can get to just about any destination in northern Italy in one and a half hours or less, Venice, Florence, Verona, Milan, Mantova, Padova, Ravenna, Parma and more. After a one month stay I felt like it could be my regular home. The apartment was every bit as good as the pictures of it. The washer-dryer combo meant I didn't have to pack so many clothes. For the warmer days the air conditioning worked excellently. It was very clean and the kitchen had all the necessary items to cook at home, although why would you with all the good places to eat just minutes away. I definitely recommend this property, you won't be disappointed.

Super flat, great location, charming owner

  • 5 of 5

Bright, clean and well-equipped flat that must be a very recent renovation. It is in a truly central location with everything accessible on foot - We particularly liked the fact that the Erbe food market is right next door. Raffaella is both welcoming and very charming, so a highly recommended place to stay in a fascinating city with easy rail links to Parma and Ravenna too.

Great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for the week my husband and I spent in Bologna. It was a short walk to the Train Station for the many day trips we took and to the top attractions. You can move all around Bologna by foot from this location. We like to explore all the city and really enjoyed the shops and restaurant on San Felice, just blocks away.

It was very clean and a perfect size for two. Everything in the bath and bedroom was clean and comfortable. We truly appreciated how Rafaella stocked the kitchen and bath!

Rafaella is very responsive! She replied quickly to every question I had, which is very important to me.

I will always rent this apartment in Bologna and highly recommend it or any apartment Rafaella owns!

IDEAL APPARTMENT

  • 5 of 5

The flat is incredibly comfortable. All clean, modern and nicely decorated. There is everything you need : shampoo and hair dryer, excellent coffee machines and delicious teas, Internet access, dishwasher and washing machine/dryer, double glazing and excellent window blinds (we slept really well!) etc.

There is a fabulous food market 1 minute away and a good little supermarket.

It is in a perfect location near all the sights. Bologna is fabulous! We were also not far from the station (trains are cheap in Italy and Ferrara, Padova, Modena etc.were within easy reach).

And the owner is extremely nice!

We would definitely go back there!

Perfect Place In Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

My stay in this apartment receives my highest rating. As a frequent world traveller, I have extreme standards. The location was ideal...in a very popular part of town with terrific cafes and markets. I felt very safe in the building and neighborhood, and could walk to any manner of city sights in just a few minutes. The apartment was furnished and outfitted with every comfort necessary, even for my extended stay. Everything looked brand new and in modern style. The owner was one of the kindest people I have ever had the privilege to meet. I recommend this apartment most enthusiastically. Thank you!
