The Space

A tiny comfortable apartment, in a very quiet and fascinating building.
Petronio's house offers a strategic position in Bologna because it is very close to the main historical attraction of Bologna such as Museums, University, Theatre, "osterie" and restaurants (one of wich is just in front of the house)
Well furnished (TV, washing machine) with a little kitchen, one bathroom, two single bed in two different rooms and well equipped with anything you need (towels and sheets are offer by the host); the apartment offers you a very relaxing staying for 2 people (excellent for a couple of friends) in the old city centre of Bologna.
The supermarket is just round the corner of the street so your staying will be easy and comfortable. There is also a bike parking in the inner court of the building so that you can cycle through out the entire town.
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.

By the your check-in i.d. or passports will be required.

Thanks a lot, looking forward to meet you!!!!!

  • I would like to thank Irene and her Mum, Piera, for their hospitality! On our arrival, Piera was there to let us into the apartment and provide us with some useful information about Bologna. In addition, on the table there was a list of the best restaurants and gelaterias as well as further information on the city. There was also a bowl, filled with all sorts of delicious fruits, which my friend and I thought was a really nice touch! The apartment had everything we needed, including shampoo and towels, plates and cutlery etc. Although Irene was unable to welcome us on our arrival, she came to see us before we left to personally ensure that we'd had a pleasant stay, which was lovely of her! Overall, my friend and I were very impressed! The location is ideal, the apartment being situated only a short walk from the centre. I would definitely recommend this apartment and would stay there again!

  • I had a lovely stay at Petronio's house; Irene and her mother were very welcoming and the apartment is really comfortable, with everything you might need for a few days, and its location was perfect to explore Bologna.

  • We had a fantastic time in Bologna! Irene's place was lovely - really convenient, good value, and stylish, and in a great spot only 10 minutes walk from the middle of a really cool city. Would definitely come back and stay again!

  • A friend and I stayed at Irene's comfortable and well situated flat in the centre of Bologna for 4 nights in April 2014. We were greeted by Irene and her mother upon arrival and made to feel very welcome. The flat is fully equipped and has two separate sleeping areas, each with a single bed. There was useful tourist information available, as well as a list of favourite ice-cream parlours, pizzerias and restaurants. The ones we tested were excellent ..... The flat is on the 2nd floor of a beautiful palazzo and the only drawback that I could find was that the walls are extremely thin which could be problematic if someone next door decides to have a party. However, that wasn't the case when we were there, and we had no problem at all in getting to sleep. All in all, an excellent address in the historic centre of delightful Bologna which I can thoroughly recommend.

  • We enjoyed our stay at Petronio's house and thought the building and community added to the experience. We met Irene's mum and appreciated all of her help and patience. We lost our credit card and had to have a new one mailed to us. Irene's mum was so nice about helping us with this. We are forever grateful. We did not meet Irene and did not communicate with her much. The flat was well layed out and had everything we needed.

  • You couldn't wish a better host than Irene. She and her mother gave us a very warm welcome. Irene's place is cosy, quiet, warm, well located and equipped with everything you need. You'll find a lot of useful tips what to do and where to eat. I can definitely recommend to contact Irene if you're looking for a nice place to stay in Bologna.

  • This is a great apartment, located in a very pretty district that is central, yet quiet.
    We were given a warm welcome by the hosts mother and the apartment was spotlessly clean with comfortable beds and proper cotton sheets and covers! Lovely after a long day, to fall into!
    There is a shop 5 min away that stocks everything you need and its a quick walk to the centre too.
    I will definately stay again.

  • Irene and her mother were just amazing, I booked her lovely appartment for my parents and they could not have been happier with the way they were welcomed. Irene's place is cosy, clean and perfectly located. My parents loved their stay in Bologna and Irene's kindness. They would definitely come back to Irene's place next time they are traveling to Bologna.

  • Meine Tochter und ich haben fünf schöne Tage in Petronios Appartement verbracht. Irenes Mutter hat uns sehr freundlich empfangen und hilft bei allen Fragen. Das Appartement liegt sehr zentral, das Zentrum, die Altstadt, die Uni ist alles fußläufig in 10-15 min zu erreichen. Es ist sehr ruhig dort.
    Wir kommen gerne wieder!
