About the property

The accommodation is located in some of the most characteristic streets of Bologna, with various typical restaurants and nice pubs. The area is lively, but the street in which the apartment is located, is calm and quiet, giving you the chance to enjoy your staying both having fun and relaxing.

The heart of Bologna can be reached in few minutes by foot through typical and striking streets. There's a lot of Bologna to discover and walk through, even away from the main touristic attractions.

Thanks to the bus stops in front of the apartment, you are easily and quickly connected with the historical center, the Train Station, the Fair centre, the University area and all the main attractions, both within and outside the city centre.

'Il Salotto' is comfortable and functional. The large decorated dining room will make your stay pleasant and welcoming. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you may need if you wanna entertain yourself with some good italian food, including oven, stove, microwave, kettle and toaster. There's a tv and Internet wifi at free disposition.

Bologna is in a very practical position, as in a short time you can easily reach by train many other interesting and worth seeing cities as Modena, Ferrara, Ravenna, Firenze, Venezia, Mantova, Verona, just to mention a few.

All you want from your stay

  • 5 of 5

Тhe owner was endlessly polite, quick and accurate in our responses, including complete information about the route from the station to the bell.

After arriving, he was infinitely courteous to explain briefly about Bologna, places to visit, to eat, including city maps and business cards.

Тhe conditions in the apartment are like a three-star hotel in Rome, no less, and perhaps more.

You may not be on the map but the apartment is a 10-minute walk from Neptune Square.

I strongly recommend it to you.

Good location, very kind host, spacious apartment

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this apartment. It was one street away from very excellent restaurants, and within walking distance of the center of the city (although there were many buses as well). Mr. Guerrini was very kind, and explained many of the important cultural sights of the city, which we truly appreciated. One idea the hosts may wish to consider is to write the visit recommendations and apartment instructions in a little book, so visitors with very poor Italian language skills (like us, unfortunately), can better absorb the information. The apartment was clean and comfortable. We were a little concerned about the bathroom fan, but after a short time, we did not notice it. We enjoyed our visit, and meeting the host, and wished we had more time to spend here.

Convenient, tidy flat 10 mins walk from the centre

  • 4 of 5

We were warmly welcomed by the owner's daughter, and later by the owner and supplied with loads of local information. They even printed out maps for my planned run in the country lanes outside Bologna.

The flat itself is very quiet despite being on a main road, and a simple 10 minute walk into the centre of Bologna along a colonnaded street well supplied with supermarkets and breakfast places. The main room is spacious and airy. We ate in on two nights (a first week in Venice had taken most of our money!) and found the kitchen, although small, fine for two - it's a city flat. There's a washing machine and the shower was fine.

The road the flat is on is directly and quickly connected by bus with the railway station and town centre.

"We stayed in Il Salotto ...

  • 5 of 5

"We stayed in Il Salotto for a week in Bologna and find it perfect. The apartment is spacious and cozy, decoration and furniture are great. Located in a walking distance to all the main attractions, bus connection to the central station just from the door. The family are maybe the best people in Italy.

Be aware of some noise of narrow road."
