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. When I look for a place to stay, my most important elements that I take into consideration... More

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. Our apartment on the ground floor was lovely and well appointed. We didn't use the kitchen facilities, but we could have easily cooked anything we wanted. We opted... More

In the middle of everything, you ill find this pearl at a small street just close to the big square. Maria the owner are so wonderful and helps out with everything.

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.
