The Space

A small cosy apartment, very close to the main historical attraction of Bologna (Museums, University, Theatre and restaurants)
Via Broccaindosso is a very tipical street, famous for its very good restaurants and osterie.
In the courtyard of the building there is the famous melograno's tree that inspired the Poet Giosuè Carducci to lots of his poetry.
Fully furnished (TV, dish washer, washing machine) and well equipped with anything you need; the apartment offers you a very relaxing staying for 2 people in the old city centre of Bologna.
The supermarket is just round the corner of the street so your staying will be easy and
Bus station is 5 minutes walk from the house and you can easily reach the train station (15 minutes by bus) and discover other towns such as: Venice (an hour by train); (Florence- half an hour away), Rome (2 hours away), Milan ((50 minutes away) in order to experience the italian life style and traditions. Ciao!!!.

  • Irene's apartment was exactly as she described and she was an amazing host - very generous of her time and explained everything we needed to know and made herself available if we had any questions. The apartment is spacious, impeccable and located nice and close to lots of restaurants and central sites. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend it!

  • My friend and I spent a long weekend in Melograno's house in Bologna and absolutely fell in love with the apartment and house. The house is an elegant historic palazzo and the apartment is absolutely charming. We especially enjoyed the small terrace onto which the kitchen, little office area and bedroom have a door or window creating a very light and airy, but private atmosphere. Irene is a friendly and helpful hostess and has the apartment equipped with really everything a traveller may need, making our visit very comfortable. Thank you Irene!

  • As other reviews suggest, this (email hidden) to stay. We have rented about eight apartments from agencies for short periods. We have had no real disappointments, but this apartment is easily the nicest we have had, and Irene was by far the best host and a wonderful person. Our highest recommendation.

  • I'm another airbnb custumer who would love to move to Irene's apartment. It's very spacious, well furnitured , cosy and has everything you need. It's located in a beautiful and historical building, in a quiet street, very close to Bologna's main attractions. I was there for almost 2 months studying at UNIBO and it was very convenient since it is close to the university area. Irene is the best host ever, she promptly helped me with everything I needed; she is very kind and amazing person! The only problem I had during my stay was solved as soon as I complained to Irene. I had also the privilege of spending sometime with her and her beautiful family and I felt very lucky to had meet them! I wish to come back soon and I absolutely recommend her apartment!

  • heating was broken, we spent 2 entire nights with zero degrees and no possibility to take a shower. and it was for the 31st december!!! stayed long at the phone with the mother who tried to explain what to do insteal of calling someone to repare it :(
    neighbours very very noisy. impossible to sleep until 2 o clock in the morning. walls are quite inexistent! the pictures with the garden correspond of a little garden who do not belong to the apartment and you have no access at all. what a pity. positive points: the nice welcome of the mother. the apartement is clean and big and quite comfortable. (well, when you do not spend all your time taking the water who comes out of the heating all the day long for 2 days of course). last day the daughter sent a phone message at 2 o'clock in the night and at the moment of check out she was not very happy because i did not reply to her (but who reply at 2 o'clock in the morning)???? she offered to call a taxi but she could pay the taxi to apologize for all that mess. but she did not ...

  • Such a fantastic apartment! I stayed for a month and wish I could have moved in permanently.

    The apartment is located in a beautiful building on a great street full of some of the best restaurants in Bologna. It's about a 2 minute walk to a large supermarket, and about a 10 minute walk to the main square in the center of the city.

    Inside the apartment there is a great kitchen, dining area, sitting area with 2 couches, study area with a desk, small patio, spacious bedroom, and 2 bathrooms. Cable and WiFi are included and work perfectly. It has everything you could ever need and is so comfortable. I immediately felt at home.

    Lastly, Irene is an incredible host. She met me at check-in to show me around the apartment and make sure I was comfortable. She also provided me with a map of the city and a list of recommendations for restaurants, bars, grocery stores, and shopping. She goes out of the way to make sure you are comfortable and is extremely responsive to emails and phone calls in case you have any questions. She was amazing and so friendly.

    This is truly the only place I will ever stay when I return to Bologna and I highly recommend it to anyone else traveling here!
