What can I say after reading all the countless positive reviews ! A stay at Maria Ketty is extremely good. Breakfast with homemade cakes and pies made ​​it difficult for us to go to the Cosmoprof. Situated in the romantic heart of Bologna makes the stay personal and heartwarming. Packed with Maria's traveltips for our next Italian holiday and Cosmoprof... More

We had a wonderful stay at Bologna nel Cuore. Maria's obvious passion for her city, its food, its culture and architecture comes across in every aspect of her hospitality. The rooms that you stay in ( whether it's a room in her home or one of her apartments), the beautiful breakfasts she provides and the level of help and advice... More

We stayed here last week and this B and B was booked by our Italian friend as we were in Bologna to visit her.We were not disappointed.We stayed in a beautiful apartment with a stunning bathroom and lovely fluffy towels.The bed was very comfortable and would definately stay here again. Maria made us most welcome and breakfast was delicious.

We spent two wonderful nights at Bologna nel Cuore in October. Maria was a fantastic help right from when we reserved our room in her lovely B&B to when we arrived and through out our short stay. Two nights were definitely not enough to enjoy this lovely town, but we got a wonderful glimpse of it. Maria's B&B is such... More

I visited this B&B with a friend as part of a city trip to Bologna. What a great B&B! The rooms are excellent, like staying in a luxurious hotel. The breakfast was terrific, ranging from breakfast cereals, toast and eggs prepared as you want them. The only thing I missed was an Italian cappucino, instead of regular coffee. The owner... More

Had three wonderful days in Rubio (one of the apartments). Maria was very friendly and gave us information on the city and a list of recommended restaurants (we visited 3, all excellent!) If you are visiting Bologna, you should stay here! The section of town Bologna nel Cuore is in is a wonderful base, and is very convenient and quiet!
