Fabulous apartment, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a week in Bologna in October and what a great place to stay. It is exactly as in the photographs, and within easy walk to the town centre and the train station. Even the spiral staircase did not phase us. Local restaurants and bars are plentiful, and the locals friendly. Paolo was so helpful with everything, and there are plenty of leaflets and books for the tourist in the apartment. Quiet location if you require your siesta at lunch, and bustling in the evening. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting Bologna - but word of warning, is on the second floor, no lift, and narrow stone steps, but worth it! Helene

Great location and incredible owner

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the apartment and realized that my husband left his wallet in the taxi. As we had not noted the taxi number, Paolo phoned all 3 taxi services and asked them to send a message to the drivers. Within 1 hour, we had the wallet back! Paolo went above and beyond to help us. He also provided much information about where to eat.

Small but nice apartment in a fantastic location!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Bologna, and much of that was because we stayed in this very conveniently located apartment (just 15 minutes from the city centre). The interior is on the smaller side, but the two of us fit comfortably everywhere except the bed. Unfortunately, the bed was a thin mattress on an extremely creaky rolling Ikea frame that we found pretty unpleasant. However, the apartment was otherwise everything we needed it to be and we still really enjoyed our stay here and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone visiting the beautiful city of Bologna.

Lovely little apartment good value

  • 5 of 5

We Stayed for 6 nights and had a wonderful time. Palo was very helpful, he arranged for us to drop off our luggage early and met us at the apartment later on. He gave us advice where to visit, eat etc and booked a taxi for us to take us to the airport. The apartment is small but was perfect for our needs and great value for money. Thanks Palo

Why Paolo Grella chose Quartiere Saragozza

The exposed beams and wooden floors make our apartment a warm and romantic place in the city center of Bologna. Silent and equipped with every comfort, is perfect for those who want to spend an unforgettable stay in the city!

I lived in the apartment during my university. Living in the center of Bologna is very charming, and I like very much the small buildings with porches that characterize this medieval center.


‘Sleepy in town home holidays’ is in Via Santa Caterina 51, Bologna. The district is well connected by public transport, can be reached by buses numbers 30, 33, and 'Shuttle D'.

From the airport take the bus 'BLQ' to the central station, from the station take the 'shuttle D' and get off to the bus stop named

'Porta Saragozza/Frassinago', from there reach Via Santa Caterina by foot (5 minutes walking). The start bus stop is located on the opposite site of the street in front of the train station (you have to cross the street) near the main entrance of the Starhotel Excelsior. The shuttle D doesn't run on Sunday. On Sunday and Saturday take the number 30 Bus and get off to the bus stop named 'Porta Saragozza/Frassinago', from there reach Via Santa Caterina by foot (less than 5 minutes walking).

Alternatively you can take the number 33 bus (one of the most popular and frequent bus) and get off to the bus stop named 'Porta Saragozza /Liceo Righi', from there reach Via Santa Caterina by foot (5/10 minutes walking).

Sleepy is also located on the border of the Limited Traffic Zone (LTZ), so it is possible to park (paying a fee) in the adjacent streets of the LTZ and then walk to the apartment (in 5 minutes).

The district Saragozza is a quiet district close to Piazza Maggiore, the heart of Bologna historical center, reachable on foot in a few minutes. Closed to our place there is a great restaurant very famous. Also there are a couple of nice local for aperitif or after-dinner drinks.

The district is also famous for the shrine of San Luca reached from Porta Saragozza through a long and characteristic street with porticos, which crosses via Saragozza with the monumental arch of Meloncello and then climb steeply up to the sanctuary.
