Every single word on the B&B Benelli website and in the TripAdvisor reviews before me is true. You'd be hard pressed to find a better B & B anywhere. It's absolutely no surprise the reviews are all glowing. Roberta and her husband have lived in their flat for many years and a few years ago bought the little flat nextdoor.... More

I've stayed at many B&Bs throughout Italy and Europe as a whole. I can say without hesitation that this is the best in Italy and one of the best anywhere. It is exactly what I hope for in the B&B experience: a private room in a real home that is clean, quiet, and comfortable. The B&B is within ten minutes... More

Our room was huge, impeccably clean, private entrance as well. We asked Roberta for advice on a restaurant, Im Pescatarian, but husband is a Meat lover....she suggested E Cucina....and we were not disappointed....we also did... More

Bologna is the capital of good food, which I love, so it is a pleasure for me to suggest restaurants that I personally prefer. Thank you for visiting Bologna even only for two days. Ciao!

I’ve been meaning to write this review for months!! We stayed at this beautiful B&B during our honeymoon. Two nights just wasn’t enough in this most perfect, modern and homely accommodation. The mini apartment with private entrance was spotlessly clean and roomy with everything you could ask for from a B&B, plus some added bonuses like cable TV and a... More

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.
