Ideal for couples, a few metres from the train station and 10-15 minutes walk from the historic center. Lovely breakfast with croissants, bread, jams, curd cheese, joghurts, fresh fruit, fruit jiuces, cereals and the usual coffee and teas. Up date: if arriving at Bologna station, turn left, cross first street (corner Giacomo Matteotti / XX Septembre) and the hotel is... More

Yes, the design is really unusual and nice. I and my husband had some new experience (for us it was the first time in B&B). The owner is also nice and responsive. And everithing could be great....

This is hotel has a really interesting concept with just 4 rooms. It is located on one floor of old building. it is not easy to get there because it has nearly no sign. this 'charm house' (owners called it like that) is really lifetime experience. You feel yourself as a guest in your friend's home. Design and decoration is... More

We had a pleasure to stay at Il B Di Bologna for eight nights in October 2012. At first, while booking the room at this B&B (or how it is called on some websites “design boutique hotel”), we had some concerns about the nonstandard design of the rooms; however, the information about perfect Wi-Fi connection overweighed other worries. Being equipped... More

Stayed at İl B Di Bologna for 1 night as a young couple. The small hotel is so chic and romantic. Perfectly located just a few minutes away from Bologna Central Train Station. Even if you come to Bologna via plane like we did you can take the aerobus to the central station (6 euros per person) which takes not... More

This B & B is on the 4th floor (serviced by lift) of a traditional building on a very busy intersection at the northern apex of the inner ring road. It is a short walk to the station and the bus depot, and for that reason gets 5 for location for us, because it was ideal. But those who want... More

Trust us - this is worth it! You won't be able to find B di Bologna - it's hidden in an un-prepossessing Edwardian building on the north east corner of the junction. But owner Enrico will have phoned you and he will arrive to let you through the anonymous door. You will then take the ancient lift up through the... More

It took us a while to find the the hotel but once it was discovered we were not disappointed. Clean, chic, and great value for money. Breakfast was wonderful. Perfect place for a short stay or weekend break.
