We have spent two lovely days in Penelope's Bijou, she is very kind and nice and made us feel like home. The room is spacious and comfortable and the breakfast is very rich in Italian goodies. The house is perfectly situated in order to go everywhere by foot. Also, all suggested places for lunch and dinner were excellent. Thanks again... More

While the proprietor and her mother were very lovely people and the place was clean and well situated, there was NO AIR CONDITIONING. The week we were in Bologna was warm and because there was no air conditioning, we had to open the windows. The street noise was very loud - this seemed to be the main drag for the... More

A super atmosphere on arrival. Friendly greeting by Luca, with tour of the apartment. Excellent, clean facilities and with personal touches everywhere. The kitchen in particular was very well appointed. The location of the B&B is excellent, as within a couple of minutes you can be in the bustling centre Bologna. A wonderful short stay.

As advertised, Bijoux de Penelope is right in the heart of Bologna. It is clean, accessible and away from the street bustle. We had a lovely room overlooking centuries of history. But the real value is Penelope herself. We had a serious medical emergency (requiring hospitalization) our second night and Penelope stepped up. She was invaluable in getting assistance using...

They are ever looking for ways to please you. They have created a warm and comfortable ambience, one in which you immedietly feel that you "belong." Should I return to Bologna, I... More
