Private room/ private bath, Breakfast included.
Fantastic location in elegant palazzo in historical Bologna.
SINGLE ROOM/PRIVATE BATHROOM
" The room and the bathroom make you feel as though you're staying in a 5 star hotel! By far the best place we stayed on our trip through Italy and also the cheapest!"
"a cute breakfast in the morning... and even little night lights to find the bathroom [private bathroom!!] in the house. These details are typical for Elizabeth; she is always one step ahead of you to make your stay as comfortable as possible. She even offered to use a bicycle -There I was cycling through beautiful medieval Bologna, as if I was Julia Roberts in the 'Eat pray love' movie! "
Esther, Amsterdam, Holland
"The room itself was simple, clean and elegantly decorated, as was the rest of the house - reflecting Elizabeth's personality in many ways."
"I would give this place A MILLION STAR RATING if I could!!!
We had the time of our life! "
Katy, Portland, Oregan
"She couldn't improve! Elizabeth was an amazing host and her home was simply devine."
Liz, Perth Australia
Located behind Bologna's main piazza - PIAZZA MAGGIORE - on a quiet, safe side street overlooking a tree filled courtyard.
Maybe its the fact that it was once a convent, or maybe its sincere gratefulness for my wonderful life, but everyone agrees my home has a great peaceful energy and its a pleasure for us to share it.
My young sons are bi lingual and appreciate meeting people from all parts of the world.
The guestroom is uncluttered and perfect for a single guest;
the bed is a trundle bed, meaning another bed pulls out underneath for a second guest, if needed.
Guests have internet access, an Italian cell phone to use, their own private bathroom, drawers and closet to put away their things.
Bedroom window overlooks a private courtyard with no thru-traffic.
I am a professional fine art photographer and besides a perfect cappucino every day at 11am -aesthetically pleasing living is essential to me!
Ideal for people stopping a few days in Bologna for business, trade fairs or holiday.

Ottima accoglienza in una casa davvero serena e di buon gusto. La zona è tranquilla anche se molto centrale e ci ha fatto sentire cittadini bolognesi.
Tre giorni belli e intensi anche a girare in bici.
Elizabeth è una persona simpatica e molto pratica.
Molto carini ed educati i suoi ragazzi.
Spero di avere altre occasioni per soggiornare qui.
Elizabeth is THE perfect host ! The room is very calm nice, friendly and situated in the very center. I just loved this short stay and wish I could come back next year !
Elizabeth and her English speaking family are very friendly, especially considering it can't be easy having strangers in your home a lot of the time. The location was good and Elizabeth went out of her way to assist me on occasions. She even drove me to the airport which was very generous of her.
Access to the kitchen was limited but then Elizabeth was up front about this from the very beginning. Fine if you are staying for a few days but awkward for long stays, unless you eat out every night. The room is also quite small. Good for one but would be cramped with two. That said the room is very quiet and having a private bathroom across the hall is nice. Breakfast was plentiful and could be taken in the small courtyard in fine weather.
I stayed here for three weeks for a gelato course. Others taking the same course seemed to have a better deal for the same price or cheaper , enjoying private apartments not just a single room,so do look around if you intend to stay for a long period in Bologna . In summary I would recommend this airbnb for single travellers without a car who needed somewhere for a few days and didn't require regular access to a kitchen or mind spending a lot of time in their room but wanted the convenience of being in central Bologna.
Elizabeth made us both feel very at home and relaxed. It was a great stay in the larger double room with an en suite. She left us breakfast in the morning along with coffee on the stove and a nice personal note. It was in a handy location, very near the centre, yet quiet. I would definitely recommend the accommodation.
Thanks so much to Elizabeth and her son for this good moment in Bologna. The appartment is really nice & confortable. Bologna is such a nice city. Really young, dynamic and many good restaurants. If you want to try a delicisous gelato, you have to go try "La sorbetteria"
La permanenza a Bologna è stata molto positiva;Elizabeth è un'ospite perfetta,molto gentile e simpatica,ha accolto me e la mia amica nella sua bella casa lasciando a disposizione tutto ciò che potesse (website hidden) ha accompagnate a cercare un parcheggio per la nostra auto e dato suggerimenti su dove trascorrere le serate piacevolmente.L'appartamento si trova in centro e i luoghi di maggior interesse si possono raggiungere a piedi.Bologna è proprio una città da non perdere e sono contenta di aver conosciuto Elizabeth.
