“Really good place to be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

As soon as we booked online, the lady send us a really friendly sms arranging all the details. Once we got there, she was helpful, kind and super friendly.
The place is clean, well located and has a really nice bathroom. In the morning, the breakfast is abundant and super good.
If we come back to Bologna, I think we would head to A Bologna right away.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Very clean, nice and friendly owner.
I arrived very late and she waited for me without asking for an extra charge for late arrival.
I would definitely recommend it for short breaks and business trips (good location)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2011

We stayed at A Bologna for one night on a recent trip to Italy. Room was spacious and clean, breakfast basic but satisfactory. There was only one other guest when we stayed which was good as the shared bathroom would receive a serious workout when the balance of rooms are full.

The B & B is in a large apartment and was very secure. We were looked after well by the hosts who spoke excellent english. The location is good but a little walk into town - we had trouble finding suitable close-by dining options as local restaurants were full. There is a post office in the next block - excellent for sending all of the shopping home! In summary this basic accommodation was fine and suited our needs.

You cannot park in the street however as it is limited to residents only - underground parking stations are located in the wider area however. The room was on the expensive side for the basic amenities provided however this reflected Bologna's hotel prices which were much higher the elsewhere we encountered due presumably to the the large amount of business travellers.

Excellent b&b, the owner wants you to feel right at home and she succeeds marvelously. Spacious room, clean, very clean and spacious bathroom. I can confirm I had a fan in my room, I had four towels, and everyting was clean and had a nice scent. Breakfast was basic but ok. The location is great, close to the station and close to the city centre. I didn't take the bus, but it seemed close as well. I would definitely recommend this place!

A friend and I stayed at B&B a Bologna for one night. We shared a spacious room with 3 beds. We were the only people staying at the B&B and were greeted by the owner who was exceedingly friendly, spoke english and very courteous. In the morning, we checked out with no problem, and were given coffee and some light pastries. The experience was pleasant overall and I would recommend the B&B to travellers who are looking for affordable and clean lodging.

The good points..
The location is central, its very clean, the rooms are a good size and its convenient esp in relation to the train station.
The bad points, Dont arrive between 2pm and 7pm because you cant get in.
The worst is that there is only 1 bath and 1 toilet in the same room, not even a second toilet, as there is no ''staff'' to be seen after a couple of hours of use it gets filthy and VERY SMELLY. There was NO hot water, NO toilet paper, NO bath towel just a tiny face towel. NO fans in the room (it was 31c when we were there). Dont say for the breakfast, no one should start their day in Italy with that rubbish so just go to the closest Bar round the corner and have B'fast Italian style.
Its cheap but you would expect better for the price, the bathroom situation is unhygienic and unacceptable.
