Accurate photos, very noisy street

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is lovely and in a great location. The hosts were wonderful; good communication and recommendations. We loved being down the street from the park. The reason for only three stars was the main bedroom has windows facing a very, very busy street and even with every window closed the noise was awful and it goes all night long.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that this guest could not enjoy her stay. Surely the location of our apartment in the heart of Bologna has not only many advantages (walking distance to almost everywhere, many shops and restsurants, easy to reach by car) but also a few disadvantages, such as the noise from the street. Anyway the apartment is six floors higher than the street level and luckily most of guests can endure the noise. Aimone

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Aimone was great! We were greeted by him at the door, the fridge had water and milk. The apartment was completely furnished with all of our needs. The beds were comfortable! It was in the heart of Bologna, a short walk to everywhere. Would recommend to anyone.

Fantastic location, beautiful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was fantastic. Beautiful historic building. Spacious, beautifully furnished, everything was better than expected. The owner was very helpful, easy to contact and rapid response. We loved the location, convenient to the train station and to the historic district. I would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful and comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

We visited Bolognia with my family and friends (there were 5 of us). The apartment was perfect for our short stay but it would also be very comfortable for longer vacation. Great location, full equipment, two bathrooms, internet connection - these are the primary advantages. The spacious living room is wonderful - the big table and the decoration created a special atmosphere of this place. You could feel something very personal of the previous owner. We had very good contact with Aimone and his charming parents who welcomed us in the apartment. I hope to visit Bolognia again and hope the aprtment will be available then. Thank you very much.

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 adults really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It was really spacious, well furnished and clean. The location was perfect for us, just a short stroll to the Friday/Saturday market, and only 10mins walk to the centre of town or the train station. We wish our stay had been longer than 5 nights and hope to return one day.

I wish I could give this apartment more than 5 stars!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (parents with two teens) stayed in this elegant apartment for three lovely nights. To say that we were impressed was an understatement! The pictures are beautiful but do not do this apartment justice. It is extremely spacious, with a huge living and dining area with a flat screen TV and a wonderful balcony with a review of the old town, and a huge kitchen with another small balcony on the back. The furniture and art on the walls are original, and it is obvious that the lady who furnished and decorated it had impeccable taste (and loved horses. LOL) There was a washing machine (no dryer) that was larger than one would expect for an apartment. The bathrooms were both large, with modern renovations. The showers were larger than one would expect in a European apartment. The apartment had all the amenities, including coffee, paper towels, beautiful soap in the bathrooms, and even a bag of cookies (which were much appreciated after our long travel day.) We had a delay in leaving because of a mechanical problem with the aircraft, and as a result missed our connection to Bologna. This resulted in a 12 hour delay in checking in, and we arrived at 11:30 p.m. Our lovely host accommodated us without complaint, and his marvelous parents greeted us with warmth and charm (even though we disturbed them at a dinner party with our late arrival). We did not find it noisy at night, and slept very comfortably. Even the twin beds were wonderful. The WiFi was fast and reliable. The elevator was small, but did the trick. There were two air conditioning units - one in the living room and one in the hall - which we did not leave running at night, as both bedrooms had fans. The apartment was incredibly secure, being a locked building and the door to the apartment was like a vault door. We felt completely safe.

The apartment was very close to the town centre, with all of its charms. My husband and son also visited the Ducati factory, but were not able to make the trek to the Ferrari museums because of our lost day due to our missed connection. We will absolutely try to stay here again if we return to Bologna and can unreservedly recommend this beautiful apartment.

Bologna was a perfect introduction to Italy - not swarming with tourists, but with beautiful sights and incredibly delicious food - and this apartment was a dream. Thanks to the owner and his family for their kindness and hospitality.

About Aimone Breccia Fratadocchi

We are three owners: my sister, my brother (both elder) and me. They are not in Bologna, so I take care of the apartment, with a lot of help of ou parents.

Aimone Breccia Fratadocchi purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Aimone Breccia Fratadocchi chose Bologna

We inherited this apartment from our aunt, the sister of our mother.

We decided to rent this property in order to cope with the high costs, given that we still can not move here.

The apartment has been restored, but the style has remained the same that it had when our aunt lived here, so it is elegant and extremely comfortable.
