We booked a room there for our arrival in Italy, but were unable to find the place. In desperation we called and Alessandro, the business owner, came to rescue us. Well beyond the anything we could have expected. The rooms are lovely and the gardens and surroundings are very relaxing. We went back for three days before leaving the country.... More

Occupies old stone schoolhouse but thoroughly modern inside.Useful tourist advice from the English-speaking staff. Wifi is free but is reliable only in the lobby.Good base for exploring the area but only for people with... More

We stayed only the one night at Residence alle Scuole (booked at the last minute as we were passing through Bologna on a road trip) but have only positive things to say about our experience there. Great value for money and very quiet with well appointed rooms and comfortable beds. Allesandro really does make you feel at home immediately and... More

Alle Scuole is nice base for stay in Bologna area and is quiet place suitable for relaxation on long trip.

an excellent online deal made this the perfect place. 8 ks from bologna, in the countryside, our spacious room overlooked farmland all around. walking in the area is delightful with crops of corn, lucern, potatoes, barley, wheat and oats. having a car made it simple to get from bologna but buses do go from nearby lovoleto

Nice place. Parking is free (and you need a car to get there). Very quiet. The only noise we've heard was from passing by cars and motorcycles (about once in half hour) and slight noise from tractor on a farm across the road. Kitchenette in the room, helps a lot. Owners are very helpful and speak English reasonably well. Continental... More
