Exellent , elegant , peaceful place to stay for those who love old Italian charm. Real find! Perfect location, just couple of minutes from spectacular church of Santo Stefano, our favourite in Bologna.

My husband and I first stayed here in September 2011. We love it so much we are going back this September bringing my sister and cousin. The location is perfect. The frescos are gorgeous. Ilaria is the perfect hostess, very friendly and helpful. I would recommend Antica Casa Zucchini to everyone.

Ilaria was a wonderful hostess (its hard to imagine where negative reviews of her could've come from). She was kind and helpful with my plans in Bologna, had breakfast early when I left and called the cab for me - no complaints. Her restaurant recommendations were excellent. I was in the "Cesare" room and it was HUGE (named after an... More

The rooms are charming! Parking is atrocious...not forewarned! You are not told that you have to be out of your room late morning or it is not cleaned and fresh towels provided! The owner is curt, insensitive and argumentative. We never had breakfast because you had to have it early...not stated in info. The owner needs to accommodate guests not... More

Our large room was frescoed and the ceiling was 18ft high! Fantastic location, local to all a traveller's needs - gelati, pasta, coffee, piazzas and churches. However the 'welcome' certainly needs some kindness - we had had a very long journey and were met by the owner with 'passports' (not even please), she had run out of town maps, it... More

Excellent place with a cute courtyard in front. Beautiful, spacious rooms with frescoes on the ceilings, and a large, clean bathroom. The courtyard didn't exactly feel like a natural place to hang out for me and my two friends. However, with nice parks and piazzas close by, we truly enjoyed our time at the Zucchini. The street next to our... More

The loviest rooms we have ever stayed in. So much space in the rooms, it is like staying in an apartment. Breakfast needs some work: with a city full of amazing meats, why serve the indelible ham? Otherwise, it is a wonderful place to stay in Bologna.

This B&B is a gem in the heart of Bologna. Extremely well located in the city centre and still an oasis of peace. When the huge wooden doors close behind you you enter into a new world combining hospitality and privacy. I had to pleasure to stay in the Cesare room, a huge room, separate bath room and airconditioning. The... More

Ilaria's been very quick to respond to all my emails, and was also very accomodating with all of our requests. She's pleasant and the perfect hostess. Before I booked the hotel, I was attracted to the frescoes on the ceilings and really seeing them with my own eyes is so much more amazing... Love the room, the bathroom was spacious.... More

This is a wonderful B & B. Huge and lovely rooms, very good breakfast ( pastries made by her mother) wonderful location. Cannot say enough good things about it. Ilaria is most efficient, answering e-mails right away. Everything was perfect including the small library. Wifi available at no cost.
