Absolutely delightful. The Residenza is on a floor of a large old building and decorated beautifully. Snug and warm for a November visit. Our room, the Green Room had a little sitting room leading off it with fridge and complimentary wine, fruit and water. Breakfast was delicious and you have to love somewhere European that provides Twinings selection, not Liptons....

Agostino is a wonderful host at his bed and breakfast located in the city center of Bologna. The B&B is located on the fourth floor of a quiet residential building (the lift was out of service). There is some street noise, but it quiets down at night. There are five guest rooms which are very comfortable with a sitting area...

A bold claim to be sure. But if there's a better, more generous, gracious host we never met one. Generous, not only with the food and wine, a free welcome bottle of wine awaits all new arrivals, but generous of spirit! What traveler can ask for more? We spent 3 more weeks in Italy after we left Agostino. Invariably, either...

It goes without saying the rooms are lovely, comfortable and clean. BUT the real charmer is Agostino! It starts with the bottle of wine he opens to toast your arrival. All rooms have fresh fruit, candy and a fridge full of wine, water and soft drinks for you to just enjoy! In fact, he insists. He truly can't do enough...

We stayed at this B&B for 6 nights. We were greeted by Agostino at the train station and taken to the B&B.
