It has been a while since my husband and I stayed here during our whirlwind trip to Italy, but I still remember how wonderful Marco was! We forgot our backpack on a train, and upon our realization that our camera and other valuables were inside, we arrived at the B&B and frantically asked Marco for help. He immediately got on... More

I lived in Bologna for a year during college and I chose ayHome because it is very near the apartment where I lived (and my favorite restaurant, Al Sangiovese). I had a fantastic experience here. Marco, the owner of the B&B, was extremely nice and eager to help. The rooms are clean and beautiful-- you can definitely tell Marco is... More

The host was simply wonderful. The room was fresh with plenty of space. The shared bathroom was always clean and large in size. I was lucky enough to have a private balcony. Plus my dog Nefertiny was welcomed.

We had a lovely time at this b&b. The rooms are gorgeous and the bathrooms are clean. It is close from the city centre and to all main attractions but not the main train station. It's about 20-30mins walk from the train to here time depending on if you have 20kg packs on your back. Without the packs it is... More

I had my doubts about the shared bathroom but everything was really clean. The room was nice and Marco was very helpful. AyHome is located very close to the city centre. You can even walk from the train station to Ayhome, otherwise you can use bus No 30 from the train station(piazza dei tribunali). Breakfast was OK (selfservice), but not... More

I visited bologna fairly spontanious without having booked anything. I started looking for a place to stay and got the "ayhome" as a hint from a friendly kiosk owner ... So I called and on the same day had a nice bed. I was able to stay the whole week (March 10th to 16th) The hostel is clean, beds are... More

Warning - this B&B appears to have closed. Having reserved a room for 3 nights from 17th March 2013, and told the owner that we would be arriving late from the airport, my wife and I arrived in pouring rain to find no-one answering the doorbell. Another tenant let us in to the apartment block in which the B&B is... More

Yesterday my friends and I got back from our weekend getaway in Bologna. We stayed there just a couple of days but the whole experience was unforgettable. Big part of that we owe to our great host in B&B ayHome Marco! AyHome is located very close to the city centre, about 10-15 min away by foot and it offers a... More
