My name is Mary Ketty and I personally manage my Bed & Breakfast "Bologna nel Cuore," guaranteeing my guests special care for detail and a warm, welcoming atmosphere with the maximum respect for privacy."Bologna nel cuore" is an intimate and refined Bed & Breakfast situated in an old structure in the centre of Bologna born thanks to the love I feel towards my city. My wish is to leave my guests, Italian or foreign, with a memory of Bologna in their hearts and "Bologna nel cuore" Bed & Breakfast is ideal as an unforgettable stay for those who love the proverbial cordiality of Emilian hospitality. This elegant and welcoming residence is also the perfect solution for those who come to Bologna for business, conventions or other work related matters or for local Bolognesi who wish to host relatives or friends in a homely environment. The central position, just a few steps from the main square Piazza Maggiore, of the Bed & Breakfast "Bologna nel cuore," allows the guests to easily reach on foot the main monuments of the city, including the famous Two Towers. I will be glad to suggest itineraries which will help you discover the major historical and artistic sites, the best restaurants and the most characteristic shops where typical, traditional products of the famous Bolognese gastronomy can be bought.

Very comfortable B&B well positioned for main sites. Our host Maria was friendly and helpful in every possible way. Her local knowledge greatly helped in booking restaurants. Breakfasts were excellent and added to the enjoyment of our stay.

Maria is a wonderful host. We really enjoyed our stay in her beautiful Bologna apartment. The bedroom was large and comfortable and both it and the bathroom were spotless. Breakfast was wonderful too. Maria is a natural and was very helpful with suggestions and also booking taxis to get us to the train station, about a mile away. The apartment is in a wonderful location, a 5-10 minute walk to Piazza Maggiore. I heartily recommend this experience and would love to return.

This was our second visit to Bologna nel Cuore and it remains as perfect as it was 6 years ago. It is beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean, with every amenity thoughtfully provided, including Nespresso pods to get us started. We stayed a full week, and were always delighted to return at the end of a full day to this beautiful apartment. Maria's restaurant suggestions were all terrific, and she was helpful in every way. The apartment has ample closet and drawer space, great lighting, and a lovely kitchen with plenty of glasses, dishes and cookware. We loved our stay, and look forward to returning again. We highly recommend it.

Bologna nel Cuore is magnificent! My partner and I stayed for three nights in the Topazio apartment in late September.We arrived by train after spending a week in Padua. We usually stay in hotels when we travel but decided to stay in bed and breakfast accommodations for this trip to Italy. Maria, our hostess, was very gracious and most helpful. She greeted us at the front door within a few minutes of our arrival by taxi. Taking the taxi from the train station was quick and easy. Maria took us to our apartment and gave us all the details we needed to make our stay comfortable. The Topazio is a bright, spacious ,airy apartment decorated with hip, chic and comfortable furniture. The kitchen is fully stocked so you can enjoy morning coffee or cook a meal using the ingredients purchased at nearby markets and shops.The bedroom has excellent space to organize and store your clothing.The bed is very comfortable with lovely bed linens and pillows.The bathroom is very well appointed with large shower, double sink with plenty of space for your toiletries. There is a hair dryer . Just in case you forget a few things Maria has kindly provided a few items in the cabinet. I was delighted to find my favorite hairspray . There is a clothes washer with a dryer rack which was so convenient and easy to use.We were able to control the room temperature by opening the windows or turning on the air conditioner. WiFi was strong and consistent. My only regret is that we were only in Bologna for a few days. Maria is passionate about her city which she encourages you to enjoy and explore by recommending restaurants, places to visit. We enjoyed our stimulating, timely and informative conversations with Maria. We would stay again and will highly recommend Bologna nel Cuore to our friends . Thank you , Maria, for making our visit to Bologna so memorable!

This past September we spent 5 memorable days at Bologna nel Cuore while travelling through Italy. Our room and the whole apartment were spotlessly clean, bright, quiet and well supplied, with attention to details we appreciated (well-equipped bathroom with magnifier mirror, adjustable bedside lamps, writing desk, spacious cupboard, large & comfortable double bed, etc.) It’s well located, an easy walk to the central Piazza Maggiore, the Quadrilatero shops and restaurants, the Mercato delle Erbe, bus routes to the train station at Bologna Centrale, and even convenient for setting out on the strenuous walk up to the hilltop Sanctuary di San Luca overlooking the city (a highlight of our visit). The morning breakfasts were a special delight with selections of fruit, cheeses, prosciutto, coffee & pastry & homemade jams, served in the warm and inviting front room. Our host Maria is charming and extremely knowledgeable about Bologna’s history, art and numerous places to visit, sending a list of suggestions ahead of our arriving and helping us with restaurant reservations, navigating the city and making our stay a pleasure. We couldn't recommend Bologna nel Cuore more highly.

Dear Rod and Patricia, What wonderful words you’ve spent to describe my B&B. You made it seem like a perfect place and I am very pleased to know that you feel that way; however, nothing is perfect. To me you’ve been exceptional guests, so polite, kind and generous, also considering the large tip you left me, which denotes how good your experience have been during your stay at Bologna Nel Cuore. It really feels like your review comes from the bottom of your heart! I couldn’t wish for more. Thank you very much! I hope to see you again someday. All the best, Maria

10 nights in Bologna and we felt like it was our new home. I even used the services of a local jeweller on the street to repair my pearl necklace. Owner Maria Ketty treated us like we were friends and not guests, Extremely helpful in suggesting typical Bolognese restaurants. She arranged for us a "different" eating tour that was fabulous and even stepped up to solve a travel emergency for us. The two room apartment is centrally located at five minute walking distance from Piazza Maggiore and Piazza del Celestini with the added advantage of being on a quiet street with a garden view. We loved our stay and would return anytime.

We (2 couples) stayed in Maria's B&B Bologna Nel Cuore this September. The rooms were beautiful, in a fabulous historic building very close to the main piazza, Piazza Maggiore, in Bologna. Maria is a wonderful host and was available for information, advice, and was so hospitable! Breakfast was the best we had in Italy! It was warm when we arrived so the air conditioning as well as the fresh air and breeze at night kept us cool. Maria's recommendations for restaurants and getting around Bologna and out to the Lamborghini Mu De Tec were so helpful! We'd plan to stay there again when we return to Bologna! Thank you, Maria!
