I spent three wonderful weeks in Bologna in an outstanding B&B, the Bijoux di Penelope. Two lovely ladies, Penelope and her mother, Nicholetta, cannot do enough for you. They are ever looking for ways to please you. They have created a warm and comfortable ambience, one in which you immedietly feel that you "belong." Should I return to Bologna, I... More

It can be rented as a single room or double room. It is not an "american" spacious property, but is plenty big for spending the night, considering one would be seeing... More

Couldn't ask for anything more from my room or my kind hostess, Penny. The B&B is perfectly located if you want to be in the center of the city and walk to the tourist sites of interest, or just shop. It was so convenient, I was able to go back to my room and rest for an hour or two... More

We've just spent four nights at Bijou Penelope's and couldn't have been happier with our accommodation. Granted, the decor is of a particular taste, which you can see from the website, but we found it extrenely charming. The room and bathroom were much bigger than I expected. We had a balcony with table and chairs, with a gorgeous view of... More

I spent a couple of nights in Bologna at Bijoux di Penelope and would recommend it to anyone. Superb central location less than 10 minutes walk from both the Piazza Maggiore and the railway station, spotlessly clean and a charming hostess.
