The Space

Enjoy Vibrant Bologna!
Stay in a room in a luxurious penthouse with a breathtaking view from the terrace.
Our apartment is just in the city centre and in a very strategic position. It is 15 minutes walking from the train station and near the bus stop of the Airport Shuttle.
You will have your room, your own refrigerator and your bathroom in the upper floor.
In the wonderful terrace you can relax, have a drink or have your dinner (there is an outdoor kitchen).
We have wifi, satellite tv, laundry and a Nespresso machine for your italian espresso.
We will be happy to give you some leaflets on Bologna and Emilia Romagna in English, German and French and some recommendations on restaurants and clubs. We have a Lonely planet guide and other tourist guides.

Bologna is an important cultural and artistic center (medieval towers, antique buildings, churches, the layout of its historical center) and is an important transportation crossroad. So you can easily visit other italian town in a 1 day trip: Florence ( 35' by train), Venice (1h10' by train), Parma, Ferrara, Ravenna and even go to the seaside.

The Neighborhood

VIBRANT, independent and home to one of Europe’s oldest universities, Bologna is a dynamic counterpoint to more popular, touristy cities like Rome and Florence. Osterias serving fresh pasta with the city’s signature ragù (known as Bolognese in the rest of the world) offer compelling reasons to linger. And then there are architectural masterpieces like the church of Santo Stefano and the iconic Due Torri (Two Towers).

Getting around

The apartment is right in the city centre. You can walk easily around the centre.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Surprisingly spacious and modern apartment near the centre of Bologna with wonderful views from the rooftop terrace. Even though the kitchen and living room were shared with our hosts, Roberto and Luca, our privacy was always respected.

    Roberto was very helpful with advice, tips for restaurants and attractions and maps in Luca's absence. A minor drawback is that the guest bathroom is up a flight of stairs.

  • We were very happy to stay at Luca's place, which is as beautiful as it looks on the pictures. It was a real pleasure to relax on the terrasse with a glass of wine :)

    Luca was very helpful and told us what to visit, where we could find nice restaurants, etc.

    My only concern would be that the mattress was not the most comfortable - it was not a problem for us, but it might be troublesome for people with back problems.

  • Luca and Roberto are both very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable hosts. They made us feel right at home in their and awesome apartment. On the terrace you have a breathtaking view of Bologna and almost everything you could want to see is at walking distance. Thanks to their kindness and insider tips, we had a wonderful experience.

  • Luca and Roberto were very accomodating, knowledgeable, and thoughtful hosts who were always ready to help and made us feel very welcome in their lovely apartment. They even managed to arrange dinner reservations for us on Easter Monday at a wonderful restaurant! Their apartment is perfectly located for the historical sites, airport bus, and train station, and also near to many great places to eat. The room and bathroom were clean, quiet, and just as they appear in the photos, as were all the shared spaces of the apartment. We'd love to go back!

  • The place is nice, hosts wonderful, five stars are well deserved. We spent most from our time on roof terrace, besides there is another kitchen. The terrace is so wonderful, that it's difficult to leave it. Luca let us too much privacy, letting the living room empty all the time. This made us to feel a little uncomfortable.
