A friend and I stayed at Roberta's bnb for 3 nights. It was a home away from home. Roberta was extremely helpful and accommodating in every way possible. The room was very private with its separate entrance. Chic, airy and tastefully decorated private room. We were there during the heat wave and thank goodness for the efficient A/C! Roberta's home...

My husband and I stayed at B&B BENELLI while in Bologna on our recent 1 month trip to Italy. Needless to say, we experienced several hotels around Italy, mostly 4 star hotels. In my opinion, B&B BENELLI offers a far better experience than all the other hotels where we stayed, and that is because of Roberta. She's a lovely and... More

A fantastic place to stay in Bologna. Extremely comfortable and clean, with every comfort. The breakfasts are delicious and quite unlike the usual b and b offering, with local meat and cheese specialities and seasonal fruit. The apricot puree was especially memorable. Roberta and her husband are wonderful hosts and indulged our Italian (though Roberta's written and spoken English is... More

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.

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.

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.

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
