We stayed at Bologna nel Cuore B&B for 5 days in September 2013. Its location is excellent. It is in a quiet street a few minutes’ walk from Bologna’s main historical square, Piazza Maggiore. There are a couple of steps up from the street to the building’s ground floor but after that there is an elevator to the B&B, which is two floors up. Our room (Toledo) was quiet, very comfortable and tastefully furnished in a modern style. It had more wardrobe space than we could use. It also had TV and WiFi although we did not use these.
Breakfasts were excellent with a selection of juices, cereals, breads, pastries, fruit, meats, cheese etc., plus home-baked cakes. The selection changed by the day.
We found the owner, Maria, to be very friendly, charming and helpful. She is knowledgeable about Bologna’s history, restaurants etc. and made dinner reservations for us on a day we had to be out of town. We had a very enjoyable visit and would definitely stay there again.
