We stayed for 2 nights and will definitely check availability next time we visit Bologna. We arrived early afternoon and the house smelt wonderful, as Tiziana was baking a cake for breakfast the next morning.Tiziana is very kind and helpful, and made several excellent recommendations for restaurants. We stayed in the blue room which was very spacious and very clean.... More

Casa Ilaria is a classic B&B with extra benefits. Tiziana was the perfect hostess; informative and extremely helpful without being intrusive, even with our language barrier (lol). She and her daughter Christiana went out of their way to make my sister and I feel welcomed and comfortable. Even when the B&B was full we still felt like we had the... More

We are a young couple who stayed 3 nights in Casa Ilaria. When we arrived quite early on our first day in Bologna, it was not a problem to drop off our luggage a little early so that we could start to explore the city. Practically everything you will visit in Bologna is at a 5min walk from the B&B;... More

What a fabulous experience. Casa Ilaria is a beautiful B&B right in the heart of Bologna, a 5 minutes walk from the city center or the University of Gelato! Tiziana was a gracious and wonderful host and made me and my colleagues feel right at home. When I travel on business, I generally stay in 4 and 5 star hotels,... More

We stayed at Casa Ilaria for four nights and it was a great experience. Ilaria is a very nice hostess. She gave us a lot of useful tips on where to go and what to do in Bologna. The rooms are nice and clean and the breakfast is great. The house is situated in the middle of the student area... More

Tiziana was an amazing hostess. She is accommodating and friendly, a tremendous help in telling us about what we could do during our stay in Bologna. Centrally located, clean rooms, quiet, homemade Jam from Sicily! It was a pleasure to stay at her B&B.

Casa Ilaria is located in a very nice university area near piazza Verdi. We booked with them based on Tripadvisor reviews, knowing that warm and helpful service is one of the things that make a trip special, and that often B&Bs offer more personalized service than hotels. Unfortunately, we were wrong. The B&B itself is rather charming, nicely decorated and... More

This guesthouse has an excellent location around 10minutes walk from piazza maggiore but was very quiet and spotlessly clean. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful, and breakfast was an excellent spread of bread, ham, cheese, yoghurts and homemade cakes. Highly recommended.

Apart from the difficulty of finding the place - we were looking for a grand hotel entrance and we found a lovely simple Bolognese door plate - it is a superb, value for money, very friendly, brilliant location, comfortable B & B. We won't repeat all the nice things everyone else has said but we agree with them all! Being... More

Where else in the middle of a vibrant, busy city can you open your bedroom windows onto trees and birdsong? It has to be Casa Ilaria right on the edge of the edgy university quarter in Bologna. The delightfully decorated bedroom was lofty and capacious - plenty of hanging and storage space for a week's luggage at least. Large ensuite... More
