Just spent 2 nights in one of Maria's lovely self contained appartments.Our only regret was that our stay was too short. Maria is on hand with lots of good advice if required. We especially appreciated her efforts to book us a table on a Saturday night (Bologna is a busy place) and the recommendations for excellent gelato.The appartment is very... More

My husband and I spent four days with Maria Ketty in March 2014, visiting Bologna and day-tripping by rail to Ravenna and Ferrara. We found Bologna a bit overwhelming after the tranquility of Venice; Maria's lovely B&B was a convenient and welcome retreat from the crowded streets of the centro historico. We cannot say enough about our hostess; she provided... More

A month is not enough in Bologna and certainly not enough in one of Maria Ketty's wonderful apartments. Appartamento Topazio was the answer to my prayer for a convienent, perfectly appointed place for a month-long stay. I chose to cook most of my own meals and found all the equipment and even basic seasonings that I needed to prepare a... More

My husband and I spent 4 lovely days at Ketty's B&B during a snowy February 2013 and our fond memories of that stay drew us back again this year for a week!

I stayed in this lovely home with my teenage son. The apartment is part of a beautiful conversion of a very old building in the centre of Bologna.

We spent 6 days in Bologna with our teenage son. The Topazio apartment was absolutely perfect! The location was fantastic - only a few minutes walk from the Piazza Maggiore yet very quiet.

Wonderful! Fantastic! Great location! Lovely owner! We stayed in an assortment of lodging during our travels through Italy....B&Bs, hotels, agriturismos, etc. This was hands down the best place we stayed (and shockingly it was the least expensive place we stayed). The owner, Maria Ketty, has thought of everything and has designed and stocked the apartment accordingly. The place is completely... More

We absolutely loved this place and plan to return. We stayed in one of the apartments, and it was simply delightful. So often you see something online, and when you get there, it is not quite as pictured. Rest assured, what is pictured online is accurate and I would say it is even better when you see it in person.... More

All I knew about Bologna was what I had read in a John Grisham novel, but this is a beautiful city worth returning to - and Maria is a lady definitely worth staying with again!

My name is Mary Ketty and I personally manage my Bed & Breakfast "Bologna nel Cuore," guaranteeing my guests special care for detail and a warm, welcoming atmosphere with the maximum respect for privacy.“Bologna nel cuore” is an intimate and refined Bed & Breakfast situated in an old structure in the centre of Bologna born thanks to the love I feel towards my city. My wish is to leave my guests, Italian or foreign, with a memory of Bologna in their hearts and “Bologna nel cuore” Bed & Breakfast is ideal as an unforgettable stay for those who love the proverbial cordiality of Emilian hospitality.

I will be glad to suggest itineraries which will help you discover the major historical and artistic sites, the best restaurants and the most characteristic shops where typical, traditional products of the famous Bolognese gastronomy can be bought. ... more   less
