Ilaria was a wonderful hostess (its hard to imagine where negative reviews of her could've come from). She was kind and helpful with my plans in Bologna, had breakfast early when I left and called the cab for me - no complaints. Her restaurant recommendations were excellent. I was in the "Cesare" room and it was HUGE (named after an ancestor); my friends and family told me I was in a "princess room" when I sent them pictures. Internet was much stronger in the breakfast room than in my room, but I'm just impatient to upload pictures :) The B&B is in an internal courtyard with other private homes, making you feel very safe in the historic center of Bologna. Perfect location if you're planning on exploring the city on foot (which I always recommend when traveling to "historic centers"). Breakfast is simple - as should be expected in Italy - but absolutely scrumptious. I told her she should sell her home-made jams!
