Reviewed September 22, 2012

We arrived in Bologna to a wonderful apartment B&B Bologna nel Cuore. Ketty was very friendly and welcoming. She even showed me how to make coffee! There was alot of information on where to go and recommended places to have food. We felt like we were living in our own space with the fully equipped kitchen! I was able to prepare a simple breakfast and that was a very welcomed change from the breakfasts we've been having. The apartment is so comfortable and accessible to Piazza Maggiore, we could return anytime we needed a break. Thank you Ketty for a wonderful experience!

Four of us stayed in the Topazio apartment on the night of June 11th and our greatest regret was not being able to stay longer at Bologna nel Cuore. The apartment is so clean and fresh that it felt like we were the first guests. The design of the Topazio is perfect for four people the decoration is sylish but comfortable. Maria was warm and welcoming and she left wonderful breakfast fixings in the fridge for us to enjoy in the morning. Her advice regarding a restaurant for dinner took us back to a place we had enjoyed 8 years ago when we were last in Bologna. We hope to return again and there is no doubt that we would want to stay at this superb B&B.

What a wonderful find! From the very first contact with Maria, I knew that we had found the perfect place. Maria is a wonderful, caring, informative and welcoming hostess who really made us feel at home. The ambience of the B&B was wonderful, so well decorated, clean and comfortable and the breakfast was spectacular with its selection of meats, cheeses, breads, yogurts, cereals, fruit and even 2 homemade Bolognese cakes baked by Maria. We truly enjoyed Bologna and I believe partly because of the outstanding accommodations and the genuine caring and comfort of Maria.

We can't say enough good things about this wonderful find. The owner, Maria, is friendly, helpful and generous. Her taste in all things is impeccable. The morning breakfast table was set with style, not to mention delicious food - some of it homemade. We felt very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for Maria. Aside from the beautifully appointed rooms, the location is wonderful and within walking distance to most things. We would definitely return.

My husband and I had the great pleasure of staying at the Bologna nel Cuore for 6 nights at the end of June. The highlight of this amazing B & B was meeting and getting to know the owner Maria. She has a superb home and is a wonderful host. The B & B is in a very convenient part of town, is amazing clean, furnished beautifully and so comfortable for sleeping after many hours of exploring Bologna and the towns nearby. Breakfast was delicious and a great time to chat with Maria and learn about Bologna and insight into life in Italy. Her dinner recommendations were always perfect. Every time we walked through the doors we felt as if we were back home.

We hope to return to Bologna some day and stay in this B&B. Until then we will keep this wonderful city and Maria Ketty in our hearts.

The apartment is excellently located, walking distance from the "old downtown". Very comfortable, clean, aesthetic. The owner is helpful and generous. The building itself is interesting. I had to ask the owner for a map, she brought it immediately. I think t would be better it it is already there. Furnished in very good quality.

I appreciate very much your comment about the Topazio apartment where you stayed during your stay in Bologna.

I can only repeat the sentiments of my review from 2011, as well as the reviews of the other guests of Maria Ketty--staying with her is a superb experience! Wanted to add that the new apartment Topazio is designed so that it is completely comfortable to use as 2 bedrooms. The sleeper sofa is of high quality, and the bathroom is positioned to provide privacy from either of the big rooms. Bologna is one of my favorite places in Italy. With the hospitality at this B&B and the fine food available in this city, you can't go wrong putting it on your itinerary.
