This B&B really feels so homely; breakfast in bed, spacious rooms with lovely wooden floors, good bathrooms and the owner makes you feel right at home. He was very helpful and super kind. The B&B is about 10 minutes from Piazza Maggiore and 30 minutes from the station. It's situated in a quiet area, but there's still plenty of cafés... More

Thank you, Andrea, for the wonderful stay. The b&b is located within the city walls, and you can easily access the city by foot. The b&b is very clean, the rooms are big, and the breakfast is standard. Bologna as a city surprised us, there are many things to do and to experience. Maybe the rooms could be transformed into...

I stayed here for one night in April. I have to admit that it's not the easiest of places to find as there are lots of small streets in the neighbourhood- I ended up getting lost and taking a taxi there. You do find your bearings eventually though, and it's actually very close to the city centre. When I got... More

We stayed for 2 nights during Winter. I will say the room was rather cold for this thin blooded denizen. The breakfast was standard. The location was great. Close to the center and easy walks to see Bologna sights. Affordable, large room. Baths are shared between 5 rooms, which was not bad.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The rooms ate very big and spacious with huge beds. The room was a little hot though with just a pedestal fan. You have to share a bathroom as well but there are 2 so that's OK. You get an included breakfast which was quite nice. Its a few floors up and you can... More

First and foremost, Andrea is a super cool, chilled guy and very accommodating. He gave us clear directions to get to his B&B from the train station (number 30 bus, 7 stops) and made sure we were greeted by his colleague, Andrea (number 2!), who was also very efficient. We stayed here for two nights and found it to be... More

As a transit place, this b&b was great. It was hard to find it at night with taxi, but I finally did. The owner was expecting me so I felt safe. A few rooms occupied the entire floor. The room was by most standards a king size room. High ceilings and windows gave it a character. It was clean and... More

We stayed for one night but it was very good experience. Room was big and clean, shared bathrooms very clean, Andrea has prepared breakfast for us and we had a chat about Italy, etc. Location is within walking distance to major attractions, one of them is La Sorbetteria Castiglione, they serve great ice cream!

the B&B is contained within one apartment on the second floor of a building, so finding it was slightly tricky. The room was spacious and light, and you get a comfy bed and a TV, which is always good. The staff gave us a map with lots of things to do in Bologna, which is a lovely city- I wouldn't... More

This was our third stop on our inter rail backpacking trip round Italy, and was very reasonably priced compared to lots of places round Italy. Fairly good location, close to restaurants shops etc, quite a long walk to the station. The bed was comfy, the room was clean, the owners really nice and very welcoming. Breakfast was a bit weird...
