Bologna bel Cuore exceeded expectations on every count and with the glowing reviews it has received on Trip Advisor, that's saying something. It's not a typical B&B in that guest have actual apartments in a lovely building just two minutes on foot from Piazza Maggiore. My apartment, The Rubino was on the first floor (not ground) with windows facing an... More

Maria has created a peaceful, calm, luxurious environment for her guests. Her wonderful sense of style and design is to be seen everywhere - from the linen to the crockery and to the rooms she helped rebuild and then decorated herself. We loved the heart motifs - a charming new discovery each day - and the small added touches of... More

The location is perfect, the welcome from Maria was warm, the room was very comfortable and the breakfast divine. A lot of thought had gone into making nel Cuore a real home from home. We can strongly recommend it for a short or long stay.

I am quite delayed in writing this review, but it would be remiss not to acknowledge the lovely stay we had at B&B Bologna nel Cuore. We visited Bologna in October, 2014 and found Maria's lovely home to be just perfect for our stay. Our room was well equipped, perfectly appointed and very quiet. It was truly like being a... More

Well, it's our last night of four in Bologna. We've been staying in the Bologna nel Cuore and have had an amazing time. From the minute we arrived Maria made us amazingly welcome. We booked both the B & B rooms, so kind of took over the place, but it was well worth it. Nothing was too much trouble and... More

We've just spent three nights staying in Topazio, a one bedroomed apartment at Bologna nel Cuore. It was everything we could have wished for: immaculately clean, spacious, well-equipped, comfortable and, although only 5 mins walk from the piazza Maggiore, it is extremely quiet, so a good night's sleep is guaranteed. Everything (kitchen, bathroom, aircon, wifi) works perfectly. Basically, it's exactly... More

My very best friend and I stayed for five nights in Maria's Topazio Apartment, one of two separate apartments she owns in this lovely and elegant multi-storied building, as well as having yet another apartment which she runs as her Bed and Breakfast.

Everything written about Maria and her warm and welcoming B & B are correct. We arrived on a windy, rainy night and soon after pushing the intercom button (middle down on the left) I head her sweet voice. She was immediately there to greet and assist us with our bags, settle us in and give us directions to the lovely... More

We just returned from our visit to Bologna, where we spent 5 magical days. I wish I could add something to our review of 'Bologna nel Cuore' that hasn't already been said.
