Excellent apartment, well supplied in ideal location in the center of Bologna

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the apartment, Historic Center 2 Torri, could not have been better. It is perfect for two people. It is simply furnished but conveniently supplied with all the necessities for a week-long stay or less. Best of all, it is close to Piazza Maggiore, the University and the famous towers themselves. It is also only a few blocks from the open market which provides an outstanding choice of edible treats. Another plus is that it is on the first floor of a beautiful building but so quiet that you would never know you were in one of the most active and exciting parts of the city. Our thanks to Luca and Caterina who gave us a warm welcome and helped to both settle us in and send us off at the end of our stay.

Short but Nice

  • 4 of 5

A friend and I recently stayed in this apartment for a couple of nights and it was very pleasant but very small. The apartment does have lots of character and is very comfortable. The bed in the bedroom is comfortable and there is a futon In the living area that is also quite comfortable. The location Is perfect. All the sights are within walking distance as is grocery stores and restaurants. The train station is also within walking distance but it is about a mile so if your lugging suitcases you may want to get a cab as we did. Very easy to get one if you call. If you don't call you need to find a taxi stand. We called and had one in just a few minutes.

The kitchen is small but it was fine for two and we did cook dinner one night and breakfast.

As stated in other reviews the shower is quite small and there Isn't a shelf for shampoo so you need to set it on the floor and bend over to pick it up which can be challenging in such a small shower. That was really the only downside and we managed just fine.

There is a bar right next door but noise was not an issue even with the windows cracked open. Weather was very warm when we were there but the apartment stayed comfortable.

Caterina was very helpful with information about the sights and was very nice to meet us at the apartment even tho our flight was very light. Loved staying there and would definitely return and would recommend to others.

Cute apartment! Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Cute apartment! It has everything you need and plenty of storage space. The shower is very small but enough hot water. The location is super convenient to the downtown area! We took a cab to/from the train station (about 10 euros). Catarina was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with.

The apartment was perfect! It was centrally located to the old city, and on a quiet street. The apartment was very tastefully furnished and comfortable and well equipped, with large windows to let in the natural light. The description is very accurate. We wish we could have stayed longer than our one night. Caterina was extremely friendly and helpful in meeting us and explaining things. We followed her recommendation on dinner, and were happy we did--it was fabulous! We think it was a very fair price.
