Il belloTorrellino

  • 4 of 5

Un accueil chaleureux et une disponibilité durant tout notre séjour voilà qui résume nos hôtes.

L'appartamento era pulito, era molto attrezzato benché mancava qualche utensile quando vuole aspettare che la lavastoviglie sia piena. C'era alcuni prodotti alimentari come olio, aceto, sale, pepe, pasta, specie ecc. Era molto utile e pratico. I letti erano comodi. La fermata dell'autobus per andare e ritorno al centro o alla stazione era vicino all'appartamento. C'era un ascensore che è apprezzato con delle valigie. C'è un supermercato e un negozio di frutta vicino all'appartamento, a piedi. C'era molti informazioni sulla regione nella libreria. WiFi è disponibile.

Do 4.5 stelle perché l'appartamento ci è piacuito molto. Racommandato quest'appartamento senza esitazione.

Al Tortellino was perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

Easter 2017. We have just had a lovely week at Al Tortellino in Bologna. The apartment was very comfortable and equipped with everything that you could ever need to make it a home from home. Tea, coffee and quite a lot of groceries were there when we arrived and Emanuela had even given us a gift of Easter Cake and wine plus water and fruit. I was travelling with my 45 year old son – I am 70 – so one of the attractions when making the initial booking was that the apartment had two separate bedrooms.

Emanuela and Andrea were very helpful when I was making the booking and sent a lovely e-mail just a week before we travelled to check our arrival time. Emanuela told me how long it would take in a taxi from the airport -15 minutes, When we arrived she showed us round the apartment and arranged for a taxi to take us back to the airport at the end of our stay.

The walk into the centre of Bologna took me (a 70 year old lady with an arthritic knee) about 25 minutes and I did it there and back most days. We found that the 39 bus was good for getting to the railway station but did a city tour on the way back! We explored most of the city centre and visited churches, museums and markets. We also has a day trip to Florence on the fast train. In hindsight we should have booked that from England but did manage to get seats on Easter Monday.

All in all it was a very enjoyable holiday.

Al Tortellino is perfect for a family of 4!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Al Tortellino in February 2017 when we were in Bologna on a family vacation. The apartment was perfect for my husband, two children (7 and 4) and me, and we had an absolutely wonderful time in Bologna and surrounds during our 7 days. The apartment appears to be somewhat far outside the city center, but it was a very easy and pleasant 15-20 minute walk each morning. It was also very close - only a 10-15 minute walk - to the train station, which was perfect for us because we took day trips to Venice, Florence, and Ferrara.

The owners of the apartment, Emanuela and her husband Andrea, were unbelievably accommodating and helpful from the second we booked the apartment. We communicated via WhatsApp and they answered plenty of questions for us in advance of our arrival, as well as gave us some great information when we arrived. They were always available to help and they even stocked our apartment with (gluten-free!) necessities like coffee, pasta, milk, juice, and cookies. Everything else we needed was just down the street at the LIDL grocery store.

We originally booked the apartment because it had a free garage space for a small car, but we opted instead to just take a taxi from the airport and trains to and from our day trips, which was actually perfect. The train system in Italy is fantastic and not too expensive (if booked in advance) and we had a wonderful time exploring this area of Italy.

I have been all over Italy but this was my first time in Bologna, and I would highly recommend it to anybody! It is a lovely, untouristed city with AMAZING food and kind people. We had a wonderful experience and would return in an instant - but only if we can stay at Al Tortellino!

Important details that make the apartment really great: very comfortable beds, well-heated, great fast wi-fi, lovely little balcony, fully-equipped kitchen (with dishwasher!), large bathroom with a washing machine (they also supply dishwashing tabs and laundry detergent - so fantastic!), very secure building, elevator, and an amazing gluten-free pizza restaurant just minutes away (La Pantera Rosa!).

The only detraction was a lot of noise coming from other apartments in the evening that can be heard from the master bedroom, but it died down in time for bedtime so it really wasn't an issue. We also use white noise apps on our ipads so that helped.

Thank you Emanuela and Andrea! We had a wonderful visit and hope to return again!

Nice Apartment with exceptionally caring hosts

  • 5 of 5

Well furnished and equipped 2 bed room apartment near bus to city center, but it is easy to walk (15 min) Close and easy to Auto Strada which we used. Emanuela and Antonio were very helpful throughout our stay, particularly on arriving. The apartment was stocked with whatever we needed. My wife and I agree with the many other positive reviews.
