Thats my second time at Elisabetta's B&B. Ive spent there one week. I did journey trip to Florence, venice, ravenna, ferrara and Milan from here, coming back the night. Bologna is in a very central position and at San Petronio Vecchio you feel at home! Thanks again to Elisabetta and see you next year! John

We loved Bologna and this B&B really gave us the feeling of 'living' in this overlooked Italian city- this was very much down to the voucher for breakfast at a quaint authentic Italian cafe. Elisabetta was very warm and welcoming and the room was everything we wanted. We'd stay here again in Bologna.

We stayed at this B&B for four nights in May 2014, and liked it very much. It is close to the centre of the city - only five minutes’ walk from the wonderful church complex of Santo Stefano - but quiet and peaceful. Elisabetta is charming and extremely helpful. The room was on the small side, but clean and nicely... More

Ive been in this b&b for three nights. I've had a wonderful time there. Bologna is a wonderful city full of pubs, restaurants and museums. The san petronio vecchio is a great place. You feel at home ! Elisabetta is a special host, she gives you lots of useful info and she cookes delicious brownies!

Elisabetta was very welcoming and helpful. We appreciated the help with dinner reservations and had a fabulous time in Bologna. The room was a little off the beaten path (still, everything was within a 5-10 minute walk), which was great for us to rest after the busyness of Rome.

Elisabetta is a wonderful host and makes your stay in Bologna so much better. The room we had was lovely and modern with a spacious bathroom (no view out of the window was the only downside). It is a very quiet place to stay with no traffic noise. We appreciated the coffee machine, fresh brownies and fruit in the room,... More

We travelled to Bologna from London with Easyjet and as well as the usual mid level hotels, booking.com also presented this option. Can't express how pleased we were with it. The b&b is located on the 1st floor of a building in a road just a few mins from santo stefano. The apartment was renovated about 1.5years ago and the... More

My husband and I enjoyed Elisabetta's hospitality while visiting Bologna in September. The B&B is within the walls of the old city, located in the Santo Stefano area, with easy walkability to town center, restaurants, and shopping. Upon arrival, Elisabetta helped carry our bags up the stairs to her location on the first floor (2nd floor in the American way... More

I stayed in this B&B during the first weekend of October 2013. I had a very nice experience there. The B&B is in a central location and everything is within walking distance. Elisabetta was really kind and provided me with all important information about Bologna. The room was well equipped, comfortable, nice and very clean as well as the bathroom.... More
