We spent three nights with Roberta in this wonderful B&B. Our ensuite room was spacious, spotlessly clean and extremely quiet. Breakfast was delicious with a choice of cereals, home made yoghurt, fruit salad, meats, cheese, bread, cakes and home made preserves. An additional treat was the crepes with orange. Roberta is an extremely welcoming host who imparted a vast amount... More

Absolutely superb B+B in Bologna. Everything about it shouts quality - the accommodation, the welcome and everything that's done to make our stay perfect. She provided us with the best breakfast in all of our visits to Italy. One really couldn't ask for more. Best of all, we found Roberta, the hostess, to be priceless. Her suggestions enhanced tremendously our... More

This is an absolute treasure of a bed and breakfast. The room is spotlessly clean and very spacious. The bathroom was excellent. The added privacy of our own enterance was appreciated. There is free wifi and sky tv (which was an expected bonus). The BnB is 10 minutes walk from Bologna train station, and 15 minutes walk to the main... More

Roberta is an amazing host, she welcomed us into her home and was so genuinely excited for us to explore her beloved city. She provided us maps and lists of sights we had to see. We loved exploring Bologna,... More

We stayed with Roberta in November on our trip to visit the Lamborghini and Pagani factories for my partner's 40th birthday. Roberta was welcoming and went out of her way to ensure that we were well cared for… from the thoughtful toiletries in the bathroom and slippers, to the marvellous breakfasts (always with something new to try each morning!).

One of the very best B&B's we have ever stayed in.Just a ten minute walk to the City Centre, the B&B is ideally located and Roberta is the perfect hostess. The bedroom and bathroom are immaculately clean, the bed is large and comfortable, and we slept very well without being disturbed by traffic noise. Having our own separate entrance from... More
