Roberto and Marta"s hospitality expresses how deeply they care about their guests stay at Casa Marta
La Casa di Marta is one of the finest VRBO homes we have ever had the pleasure of using (among our dozens of experiences).
The apartment is located in the Centro within a 15 minute walk of the Central Railway Station and within 10 minutes walk of the central town square, the fountain of Neptune and the main cathedral.
The area is very well supported by grocery stores, restaurants, panificie, and cafes.
We walked everywhere and explored the city center from Casa Marta.
The apartment is extremely well appointed with excellent fixtures, flooring and decorative effects.
The in-suite laundry and second bath were very handy.
The kitchen was modern, well stocked with all the essentials, and well decorated with personal features such as the wine rack, and the world clocks adding a wonderful touch. The small balcony off the kitchen was a special treat for morning coffee or a pre-dinner drink.
The primary bathroom had a spacious and luxurious walk-in shower with double shower heads and all the standard fixtures including superior vanity, sink, and mirror set.
The main bedroom was spacious and comfortable and well insulated from outside sound.
Perhaps most impressive was the personal attention of Roberto and Marta who were never intrusive but always well organized and available with advice and information.
The apartment is extremely well stocked with English, Italian, French readings on Bologna, Italian culture, and world geography.
These features made our stay in the apartment as enjoyable as the time spent enjoying the area, the art, the architecture and the cuisine. During our six day stay we organized easy day rail trips to Vicenza, Ferrara and Ravenna with a simple 15 minute walk to the train station.
We loved staying at Casa Marta and intend to return next year!
Super appartement dichtbij het station en het centrum
Wij verbleven 4 nachten in La casa di Marta en we hebben het erg naar ons zin gehad. De ontvangst is heel hartelijk. Roberto spreekt een beetje Engels dus dat is handig. Marta en Roberto hebben in het appartement heel veel informatie over het appartement maar ook over Bologna. Als je dan toch nog vragen hebt, zijn Marta en Roberto altijd bereid om te helpen. Het appartement is super. Schoon, ruim en van alle gemakken voorzien. Wij raden dit appartement zeker aan voor een verblijf in Bologna.
The location was great as it is within walking distance of the train station and many of the sights
The apt is truly a home away from home. It is set up with everything you will need. The hosts are very the best ...being helpful and considerate of anything you need that will make your stay more pleasant. The apt is very clean and the owners obviously take great pride in it. We would highly recommend it and hope to return some day for another visit. Grazie Marta and Roberto!
Thanks Bonnie. We hope to see you again for a next stay in Bologna.
Excellent appartment well located in beautiful Bologna . Marta and Roberto are great hosts.
Marta and Roberto did everything to assist us and make our stay comfortable . Perfect appartment would definitely stay there again. Many thanks.
Lovely apartment in Bologna
This is a great place to stay in Bologna. We lived in Bologna many years ago, so know the city pretty well. Roberto and Marta are terrific hosts. They live next door, but are completely unobtrusive, while being available to help. The apartment itself is better than the pictures show. It is modern and clean. Completely renovated in the best Italian style. The shower is great ( for those Americans used to daily showers). It is situated in a nice area of downtown, out of the busyness of Bologna, but a few steps from everything available there.We would have no reservations staying again and would look forward to it if and when we return to Bologna.
We are happy that you enjoyed our apartment.
We really appreciated your positive judgment.
We always work hard to make it as functional and comfortable as possible; for us it is always a great satisfaction when guests feel “home away from home”.
We would be delighted to welcome you again in a future return to Bologna.
You will love this apartment!
La Casa di Marta could not have been better. We stayed for 10 nights in February 2018. Marta and Roberto have put much thought into providing special touches to ensure that guests are comfortable: bathrobes, 2 wall clocks in the kitchen (1 set to Bologna time, the other to your local time back home!),an apron, shopping bags, paper products, etc. Always plenty of hot water and the shower is HUGE with 2 shower heads. They provided some starter supplies like coffee and sugar as well as special welcome treats like a bottle of prosecco, a bottle of water (though tap water is good), some savory treats and the BEST blood oranges EVER! The whole place was spotlessly clean and all new everything (appliances, flooring, fixtures, beds) in the best of taste. They are obviously both very artistic individuals.
Even though it is on a major street, we were never bothered by street noise (5th floor, good windows plus exterior roll shutters which insulate and give total darkness for sleeping). The building itself is very safe and clean, elevator always fast.
As hosts, they were exceptional. We were unsure how we would get to the airport for our 6:00 a.m. flight but a few days before our departure they contacted us to offer to book the taxi for us and even got up at 4:00 a.m. to see us off and ensure that the taxi arrived. They sent abundant information well before arrival for smooth check-in and to allow us to settle in quickly since we already knew the location of the supermarket, bakery, recommended restaurants and such.
The location is ideal. Even arriving by taxi from the airport was convenient because at the corner is a small plaza/parking area where taxis can pull in for easy access. It was a short walk (10 minutes) to the train station or to Piazza VIII Agosto for the big weekend market and not much farther to Piazza Maggiore, so getting to all attractions was easy. Proximity to the train station is handy as there are many easy day trips from Bologna (we went to Modena, Parma, Ferrara, and Ravenna - recommend all) and the hosts had even sent info on those options. (Tip: buy train tickets in advance as lines are long and machines often malfunction.) The big supermarket is barely a block away and open uncommonly long hours.
You can count on a comfortable stay and lovely service here.
We are happy that you celebrated your birthday and had a good holiday despite the unhappy weather all over Europe.
It is a satisfaction for us that when you returned home, in the evening, our home was a pleasant refuge.
A good holiday is also this!
Via Marconi is a way 'historical' and the prestigious Bologna: completely rebuilt in the '60s, with modern buildings and square (and a couple of' skyscrapers' for the time).
It is in a very strategic location to live and visit Bologna for tourists: it is located halfway between the main station (about 700 meters) and the central square with the famous Two Towers (900 meters).
It traveled by public transportation, allowing you to reach all major points of interest in town. The bus stop is right outside the door of the building.
It is the way perhaps the richest of all Bologna's services, shops, restaurants, bars, pizzerias, cinemas, pubs, museums, banks, post offices, supermarkets, grocery stores, pharmacies, and everything necessary during a stay, long or short ... whatever you need you can be sure they can find it in via Marconi or in the adjacent streets.
In addition, however, a few minutes walk and you reach the center 'historic', with all that entails in terms of attractions and more opportunities.
A short walk from Casa Marta fact is the prestigious Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Bologna, MAMbo, with works by Morandi, Guttuso and De Pisis; the same distance you can advance in a mysterious journey in the culverts of the city, with the Association of Vitruvius.
Bologna preserves the medieval Old Town Europe's largest and reachable with a pleasant 10-minute walk, under the arches.
Porches that accompany the visitor for nearly 40 km in the city, up the hill of the Guard, which is the Sanctuary of San Luca.
A destination for pilgrims, as the ark of Nicola Pisano which houses the remains of St. Dominic in the basilica, not far from Piazza Maggiore, renamed Piazza Grande by singer-songwriter Lucio Dalla.
His notes are still ringing at sunset in the way of walking, the aristocratic way Azeglio.
Not far away, in the square of Neptune, the lord of the sea and water serenely watching the world go by how they look up to the Asinelli, the symbol of the "Learned", along with San Petronio, which houses the sundial gods Gian Domenico Cassini, the longest in the world.
A few steps Archiginnasio; today Municipal Library, once the seat of the oldest university in the world, for the study of Law and Medicine, as evidenced by the thousands of coats of arms left by students in the beautiful quadriloggiato, visited along with the anatomical study, a jewel inlaid wood pine.
Bologna is also the "Fat" and remember him in the quadrangle, next to the square, the medieval shops rich menus for the pleasure of taste and sight.
Zigzagging between hams and mortadella is a must stop by Tamburini, to taste tortellini and tagliatelle, before taking the step to be moved by the Lamentation of Nicholas Ark, Santa Maria della Vita and to the nearby Piazza Santo Stefano with its seven churches.
Here Bologna the "Red", with its brick and its draperies.
It is the most beautiful corner of the city.
