Residenza Ariosto
Ranked #3 of 118 Specialty Lodging in Bologna

Reviewed June 21, 2012

Located right in the heart of the city, there are six small apartments offered to visitors. I stayed, on two separate occasions, in Rooms 3 and 6. Room 6 was located overlooking the rear courtyard and had a separate bedroom, kitchen/lounge and bathroom. Masses of space and extremely comfortable. On my second stay I had a room at the front of the property but had no issues with any noise from the street. The apartments are brilliantly equipped with full kitchen facilities, washing machines in the bathrooms, ironing boards, sofa beds, fridges and so on. The apartments aren't staffed 24/7 so you are given keys to the complex. Bologna is a wonderful city full of interesting sights. Highly recommended.

A full-equipped, two-bedroom apartment for less than $150-a-night during peak travel season? Maybe because its Bologna, which is not a popular tourist destination. Franco, the owner, does an amazing job and was eager to please. The place was spacious, comfortable and conveniently located in central Bologna off the Via Independenzia and close to major shopping. The kitchen was even equipped with coffee and two types of espresso makers. However, the milk-foamer on the fancier one was broken. And my only criticism is we ran out of hot water after only two showers because the hot water tank is pretty small, looked to be only 20 gallons or so.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the inside courtyard. If your room faces the street, you may be treated to som...

Ariosto is not only the best appartment that you can get in Bologna but for me is the best appartment that I've ever stayed in! It is situated just in the heart of the city where you can find places to eat and have a drink until late at night. The rooms are really big, very nicely decorated and fully equiped with everything you need-from cd player to iron. There is a small kitchen equiped with everything you need to prepare something to eat and there is even a coffee machine with free capsules of espresso. Franco is really helpful and friendly and the price is a real bargain!

My friend and myself were searching for a value for money accommodation in Bologna. We found this aparthotel. The apartment was great and self sufficient we had two separate beds as requested and had all immaginable amenities such as kitchen, TV and washing machine. It is simply value for money. The Owner is extremely helpful as well and went out of his way to help us in every query we had. He speaks great English as well. This hotel is central and only 10 minutes on foot for the main train station which can take you wherever you want in Italy.
