You could not ask for a better location - literally, just 20 seconds from the Two Towers and the centre of the city. The apartment is very secure, airy and spacious.
We were met by Letizia who took time to show us around and provide recommendations on restaurants, bars, etc. The apartment was spotlessly clean and very well stocked with everything you could need as a visitor to the city. The apartment is on the first floor, there is a lift which is large enough to fit 4 people quite comfortably. Once you are on the first floor, the apartment is all on one level.
There are 2 steps from street level to the ground floor lobby, worth bearing in mind if mobility is an issue.
Do bear in mind that there will be street noise from time to time. Strada Maggiore is closed to traffic at weekends and on public holidays, which does help. The windows are double glazed, however; there is central heating and air conditioning if needed. By keeping the internal doors closed at night, as recommended by Letizia, the outside noise levels can be managed. We were not put out by this at all.
Would not hesitate to recommend to any couple wishing to visit the city. Our time in Bologna was fantastic - only 7 nights, but the food is so good we ate enough for 14!
You couldn't ask for anything more - this apartment is located in the old city of Bologna, basically across the road from one of the historic towers and within easy walk of all the sites of Bologna. There are numerous cafes, shops and restaurants within a few metres of the apartment. Each morning we walked around the corner to one of the best patisseries we've ever been to for breakfast (as you leave the apartment turn right and then first right. Walk to the next corner and there it is - best coffee and pastries ever). The apartment is well appointed, clean and comfortable with everything you need for a lovely stay in beautiful Bologna. There is a small well equipped kitchen should you wish to make a meal. The lovely lady who owns this apartment, Letizia, provides all the necessities and then some. There were coffee pods, variety of teas and many condiments, oil, butter, biscuits, pastries on arrival etc etc. The bathroom was also stocked with plenty of tissues and toiletries. We made use of the washing machine (Letizia also supplied washing powder and softener etc) and whilst there isn't a clothes dryer, there is hanging racks and the heaters/air conditioning in the apartment dried our clothing quickly. The bed was comfortable and linens of excellent quality. We highly recommend this beautiful apartment to stay in and Bologna as an amazing place to visit. It has the best food in Italy! Thank you Letizia for a lovely stay and your recommendations for places to visit and restaurants. We hope to see you again soon and stay much longer next time.
Spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, lots of hot water and more facilities than we needed as we indulged in eating out (when in Bologna....!). The building also has a traditional cage lift which is helpful for heavy cases, even if the apartment is only one floor up. Letizia met us outside, then explained everything we needed to know about the apartment in addition to providing us with lots of very helpful information about the area. Strada Maggiore could not be more centrally located for all you need for a few days of sightseeing and immersion in Bolognese local culture. It could also serve as a good base for longer as the kitchen area is compact but well appointed, and there are lots of ingredient shops around the area. Car parking would be the only issue as with most central locations. I often think how you part company says a lot about your stay. Letizia organised our airport transfer and walked with us from the apartment to our taxi at the end of the road, chatting as we went. It was a touching gesture which perhaps sums up nicely her attitude to both her apartment and visiting guests. Like the rest of this charming city, it created happy memories. Recommended in a heartbeat.
Letizia's appartment is located at the heart of the city, just down the two main towers of Bologna. At two minutes walking to il Duomo, the archigimnasio, the historical city hall, Neptuno's fontaine and many museums and medieval streets. Besides, Letizia is really helpul in giving actual information about exhibitions and important events in the city. She is very kind and easy to reach in any moment you need to. The appartment is very clean, chic / cozy, really charm and confortable. She had everything ready for us, even fresh milk and coffee for our breakfast. It is sincerely a lovely appartment and best host I have ever met. We would come back to her place soon. We highly recommend her place.
We have just returned fom a memorable stay at Casa letizia. Me and my husband which has limited mobilty found the location perfect, It is bang on the centre of Bologna and a few steps from the famous two towers. Ms Letizia, our host was very helpfull and made all possible for us to enjoy to the full our stay. The appartment is fully equipped with everything one could need to be just like at home. We will certainaly return whenever its possible. Highly recommendable . Thank you signiora Letizia.
My partner and I stayed here in August - sorry for the delay in posting this!
This was in fact our second visit to Casa Letizia, we stayed in 2015. Obviously we love the apartment and we agree that Letizia is the best! All the wonderful things that people say about the apartment and Letizia are all true. It was just so exciting to step through the door again this year and lovely to see Letizia. Our two weeks there were marvellous.
I am really hoping that we will be able to visit again next year. Bologna is now one of my favourite city's in the world and there are also so many other beautiful places easily accessible by train. I look forward to my next visit.
