Indipendenza Suite
Ranked #241 of 305 Bologna B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 30, 2013

My boyfriend and I visited Bologna for a long weekend in September. Knowing next to the nothing about the city, our main requirement was to be central. We struck gold with Indipendenza Suite, which was less than a 10 minute walk away from the train station and 5 minutes from the main square. The b&b has a shared entrance with other businesses, but there is no buzzer. Under the name is the floor number and an Italian mobile number which you need to call for the owner to meet you and give you the keys. I'm always a little nervous about booking accommodation in the "old" part of town and worry that it might be dusty or tired or less secure, but everything was just fine. The b&b looks newly refurbished (all painted white) and was very clean. Our room was a double with an en suite, and we had plenty of room. Having a sofa and desk were nice extras. The locks on the bedroom door are the old style Italian multiple locks, and we felt very much at ease. Being in an old building, the window was huge and was lovely to look out of first thing in the morning. It's so lovely to have that much natural light. We didn't even have trouble with noise, despite being on such a central road. We could hear the odd scooter go by and usual evening movement, but it wasn't ever enough to keep us awake. Breakfast is a coffee/cappuccino and a croissant or pastry from a small bar down the road. Not huge but yummy and enough to set you up for the morning. I wasn't thrilled at first when I realised we had to leave the b&b to get our breakfast, but it's only across the road and it got us up out of bed, so looking back it suited us perfectly. Very good value for money. I would definitely recommend!

Room Tip: Make sure you turn the water heater on before you take a shower!

Great location and nice facilities. The name is deceiving as this is simiply a room in a building not a true bed and breakfast. Access to the building is controlled, the list of business have the Hotel name but there is no suite number or bell that you can ring to buzz you in. We managed to get into the buidling by tail gating another tenant but once we got to the room, there was no way to contact the owner or get in. Read the other reviews, you must make arrangement to meet the operator to get keys upon arrival in Bologna. Breakfast is a pastry and coffee at the coffe shop across the street. If you are looking for atmosphere and ambience then this is not the place, but if you are looking for nice clean facilities that are centrally located and reasonably price then this is a good option.

Great location in central Bologna, a few minutes walking everywhere.
You have to phone the owner for the keys, there is no desk. Indications (floor and phone number) at the door of the building. Clean and comfortable rooms. One of the rooms has the toilet separate but it is private. Breakfast is a cappuccino or coffee and a pastry at a front pasticceria. Delicious but not generous. Very noisy street at night. You can hear the people from the restaurants below, buses and cars.

The Indipendenza is a really good option if you are visiting Bologna. It is very, very clean, quite spacious and comfortable. The guy who runs it, Marco, was extrememely helpful and texted me a few times before my arrival to give directions and then gave very good recommendations about good places to eat andd rink in.
The location is superb, about 5 minutes on foot from the main piazza and ten from the train station. Via Indipendeza is right in the heart of everything with lots of good eateries and a good buzz. The price you pay I suppose is that the street is busy with traffic so it can be a little noisy at rush hour in the morning, not the hotels fault though to be fair.
All told, I would be happy to recommend this place.

Room Tip: I think there is one room that does not face on to the main street, ask for this one.
