Giusy purchased this Apartment in 2017
Why Giusy chose Quartiere Saragozza
In La Porta Rossa I put all my know-how in the temporary rent business, accumulated in the last years. It is an apartment that I specially created and furnished in order to operate successfully in this exciting branch of activity.
What makes this Apartment unique
What I liked when I choose La Porta Rossa is the context, the very central zone, the historical, elegant building. Finding a fairly large terrace and a garage are not common features in the center of Bologna. But the most surprising aspect of the apartment is the absolute peace and tranquility that characterizes it.

Fantastic apartment in the historic centre
This was without doubt one of the best apartments we have stayed in. We were visiting Bologna for New Year with friends, so two mature couples, and the apartment was just perfect for us. Not just the location, a few minutes walk from Piazza Maggiore and fifteen minutes walk from the central train station, but the layout with two bathrooms, two double bedrooms, a very well equipped kitchen and a big comfortable lounge with enough soft seating for four of us to relax after a day sightseeing. So many places don't provide enough seating for the number of guests. There is a large sheltered terrace which would be a big bonus in summer. We had great weather and sat out with coffee in January. The apartment was really well thought out with things that made our stay easier: lots of tea and filter coffee, two pizzas in the freezer, a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge, loads of toiletries in the bathroom, hair straighteners and tongs as well as the usual hairdryer, coat hooks and shoe rack by the door, again something many places overlook, washing powder and fabric conditioner alongside the washer and drier and all the cleaning and washing up equipment you could need. The beds were really comfortable with quality bedding and it was surprisingly quiet despite being in the centre of the old town. Guiseppina and Marco were great hosts keeping in touch and making sure everything was perfect for us. They went above and beyond expectations in finding and making a restaurant reservation for New Years Eve which turned out to be the gastronomical highlight of our stay in Bologna. We would definitely stay here again if we return and highly recommend the Red Door. Thank you Giusy and Marco. Happy New Year.
Thank you very much Laurence for your wonderful words. It has been a real pleasure have you as guests and we hope to meet you in future. Your comments stimulate us to keep improving the apartment and striving for guaranteeing complete satisfaction to our guests.
Better than the Photos
Lovely, clean, large apartment. Great location. Guisy and Marco were very helpful. Would rent again if I were staying in Bologna.
Fabulous Property in the centre of Bologna
We, with a couple of friends, stayed at The Red Door apartment in the centre of Bologna for ten days. The owners, Giuseppina and Marco are so helpful, both before our arrival and when we were guests. Giusy met us when we arrived and showed us around. The apartment is beautifully furnished and comprises of two large bedrooms, two bathrooms (one of which is en suite), a well equipped kitchen with large dining table. There is a large sofa and chair in the seating area with a television. Air-conditioning is in all rooms, also electric window shutters at all windows.
Outside is a large terrace with pot plants, table and chairs with a parasol, a great place to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner if you fancy cooking. There is a Co-op nearby which is well stocked. As other contributors have already said, the apartment is within five minutes of Piazza Maggiore and shopping areas. Restaurants are also nearby. If you, like us, hire a car, it is most convenient to be able to park below the apartment. The payment to Giusy is 25euros per day plus a one off city permit payment of 30euros. We would not hesitate to recommend The Red Door apartment.
Hello Rita,thank you very much indeed for your very positive review of our property. This motivate us to do always better. We are travellers also and we treat our guests as we would like to be trated abroad. Thank you also for having mentioned the parking facility, there are not so many available in medieval Bologna city centre. Just to be more clear for future guests, 30 euro for city permit are meant for a 10 day stay. Take care.

The Red Door
Great location for all the sights of Bologna. Apartment was very quiet, comfortable and stylishly furnished. We really appreciated the air conditioning as we stayed in August! Guiseppina was a lovely host - great communication and very friendly. We would highly recommend this apartment.
Perfect apartment!! Perfect host!!
Wow. What a fantastic experience this was for our family. The apartment was great - roomy, clean, comfortable, air conditioned. The outside patio was beautiful to sit for breakfast or an afternoon coffee. And the location was fabulous - within walking distance to everywhere - restaurants, cafe's, sightseeing.
But perhaps even more impressive was the hospitality of the host. From sharing local places to eat, best places for shopping or a coffee. We drove from Rome so she arranged parking and getting a permit for driving in the ZTL. We could not have asked for a better place to stay for our visit to Bologna!
More important than the pictures - that truly correspond to reality - is what is hidden behind the mirror ! To begin with, the contact with the owner is fluent and most reliable : Giuseppina will answer your questions by email within a few hours and she's eager to help in any way for any purpose at any time : from how to get tickets to enter the Limited Traffic Zone with you car to, on the spot, if you need more of what you can find into the cupboards. Just a few examples : we found different types of coffee and tea, spices, sugar, fresh water, detergent caps for the dishwasher, shampoo, shower products, demakeup cotton balls, soap, sponges and towels of all kind... You just feel at home as soon as you arrive.
When we did, we were welcomed and the apartment was just blinking. The temperature was a most appreciated 21 degrees as the airconditioning had specifically been turned on a few hours before. That was just perfect, Mima !
As for the location, literally everything is at walking distance : there's a Coop supermarket a few hundred meters away and you barely need to walk more than 10 minutes to reach the farthest site to visit in the town center. The environment is calm as the apartment is situated in the ZTL and you can enjoy the large private terrace any time.
You will also find a precise list of what to visit in and out of Bologna as well as different maps and if you don't know how to choose between the numerous places to eat, you can blindly follow the "Where to eat" list, made up with good restaurants according to tastes and budget. You even have the telephone numbers if you want to reserve a table. We chose a different one every evening and they all served excellent food for a really affordable price.
Another thing that we appreciated is the free high speed wireless Internet connection.
We've been touring through Italy for quite a few years now. This apartment, together with the service that goes with it, definitely belongs to the top ! Many thanks !
