Great location, nice kitchen set up, good communication
We found the apartment well located and easily reached from Bologna Centrale. It is also within easy walking distance of the many sights most tourists and visitors are interested in seeing. A pleasant cafe is just below the apartment, solid trattorias are very close, and more abundant restaurant offerings are just a ten minute walk away. Carlo and his colleague provided effective communication about reaching the apartment, check in and check out.
Visitors should note that the apartment is in the university area. As such, it is ideal for those visiting students or the university itself. But, it also means that you will be hearing students as they gather and party until early morning hours. Fortunately, the windows, when closed, offer a good barrier to the noise. We never found it objectionable, but be aware of it.
We cooked many of our own meals and the kitchen, while small, is well equipped for most types of meals you would prepare here. As others have commented, the layout of this studio is thoughtful with one step up to the kitchen and one more to the bed.
If we return to Bologna and wish to stay in the university area, we would certainly consider this apartment again.
A perfect, centrally located base for discovering Bologna
This is very much a repetition of the other reviews: Carlo’s apartment is a perfect place to stay for a visit to Bologna. It is centrally located in a pleasant, relaxed area dominated by students, within easy reach of many of the city’s landmarks, and very near to several excellent restaurants and small cafes. ‘Anna Marie’s’, the restaurant right next door, is one of the best.
The studio apartment itself is up several flights of stone stairs, which along with the inner courtyard give an authentic feeling of the place—the downside being the strain of the stairs if you have limited mobility or heavy suitcases.
The apartment is light and airy, giving a sense of space and openness, and the windows look onto the rooftops and down to the courtyard and café below. There are both blinds and air-conditioning if needed. Although the pictures are representative, they don’t capture the surprising tranquillity of the place. The apartment’s clever layout, with a step up to the kitchen area and another up to the sleeping space and bathroom, divides the sections wonderfully well and avoids the ‘studio-feel’ of sleeping in the kitchen.
The apartment was clean and everything we used functioned well—everything was there, including the space, should you wish to prepare a ‘proper’ meal.
Carlo responded promptly to our mails and was very accommodating to our ‘irregular’ arrival and departure times. Because we arrived early, he was unable to meet us. Instead, we were greeted by Ermias, who took time to give us invaluable tips about where to go, what to do, and very importantly, what to eat!
Thank you Carlo and Ermias for a truly enjoyable stay. We hope to return.
Adoro questo appartamento. Molto pulito, molto luminoso, molto confortevole, molto comodo, e molto tranquilo. Piccola ma eccellente cucina. Ci sono molti passi e alcuni passaggi stretti. Voglio rimanere qui. My wife and I love this apartment. It feels so comfortable. Super clean. Great kitchen, but to be honest, we cooked very little. We visited Bologna to eat. Our host Carlo was the best. He went out of his way to welcome us. If you cannot climb lots of steps or navigate a narrow shower, this is not the right apartment for you. The neighborhood is close to the University and the area is full of students. We were never bothered by noise. Very quiet. Close to everything—Bologna is small. I want to visit Bologna again and I would gladly stay here again—if it’s available.
Faccio il possibile affinché i miei ospiti stiano bene e sono contento quando ci riesco.
Jeremiah & wife are very nice people.
Comfortable, convenient, great place to stay
We were looking for a good value place to stay for our first visit to Bologna and we couldn't have wished for better. Carlo's communication and assistance was excellent, and we found the apartment easily with a taxi ride from the airport. The apartment is up several flights of stairs so is not suitable for those with limited mobility, however if you can do the climb you're rewarded with a quirky and comfortable place to stay. We didn't eat in the apartment as there were too many places to see and restaurants to eat at, but all the equipment was there if needed and the air conditioning was invaluable during the hottest weekend so far of 2017! The apartment and were clean, linens plentiful and there was always enough hot water. WiFi isn't the fastest but perfectly fine for keeping in touch and a bit of browsing. There are a couple of supermarkets within easy reach (although we only bought water and milk we could have done a full shop at either of them) and the fantastic sights of the city of Bologna are just a short walk away. There are countless great bars, restaurants and cafes on the doorstep - we didn't find a bad one! We particularly liked Stanze... Wouldn't hesitate in recommending this lovely little place. Thank you Carlo :)
Il mio obbiettivo è che gli ospiti stiano il meglio possibile.
My goal is that guests are as good as possible.
Lovely central apartment
This studio flat on the third floor of an old building in the historical centre has great views over the surrounding roofs. It is very clean and comfortable, and the owner , Carlo, was very welcoming, and came immediately when we had a problem with the Wifi. There are many convenient shops, cafes, and restaurants. We would definitely use the fat again.
The reviews say it all. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and were totally satisfied in every respect. The downstairs Trattoria Anna marry was similarly 5 star as well. Local shops were great with a local supermarket 50m away. Highly recommended.
