To the owners' credit they have tried hard to present attractive and comfortable accommodation, but some elements are outside their control. It's noisy, the location and apartment layout make it claustrophobic (to our standards) and although on one hand this apartment is in the city centre,on the other hand it is a less than salubrious area, with graffiti everywhere and...

We had a small studio apartment in the city centre, near to the basilica, university and many restaurants, and 10-15 minutes walk to the station. It was clean and comfortable, with a nice bathroom and a small kitchen. The facilities are good if you are staying more than a few days and have time to go shopping and do your... More

We stayed at the Residenza Ariosto for two nights and had a great experience. The apartment is beautifully furnished and comes with a small equipped kitchen. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom even includes a washer with detergent! The location is great. Close to the shopping areas, and some great restaurants and trattorias around. Wifi is included for... More

My sister and I stayed at the Residenza Ariosto for a few days last May. To be honest, we picked this place originally because it was a killer deal, but we were so happy to find that it was so much more. It was the perfect spot to explore the town. It was close to the main action, but down... More

We spent two nights in a one bedroom studio - which we loved. The room was very big and had everything we needed including a washing machine. The location is very convenient and close to a lot of good restaurants, supermarkets and a fantastic wine bar. The staff were very friendly and allowed us to leave our bags at the... More

We stayed 5 nights in a one bedroom apartment on the first floor of the main building. Fairly basic but everything you needed. The best thing is the location, 5 minutes walk to Piazza Maggiore which is the main centre of the tourist area. Close to restaurants and a supermarket just around the corner. Highly recommended.

Apartment is basic but large and all you need for a visit to Bologna. Great restaurants and shops steps away. Great host offered lots of local information and restaurant recommendations. Main room is sparse but provided a common area for spending with apartment mates.
