About this listing
A very bright and very comfortable apartment, in a very quiet and fascinating building with four terraces facing the roofs of Bologna. Situated on the last floor, you can enjoy your staying leaving a particular atmosphere on the roof of this old town.
The 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)
The apartment is well furnished (TV, washing machine, dish washer) and a well equipped with anything you need (towels and sheets are offer by the host); it is composed by a big kitchen, one bathroom, one bedroom with two single bed, a dining room and a living room with the possibility of a third bed (sofa bed).
The apartment offers you a very relaxing staying for 3 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 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 way...at your check-in i.d. or passports will be required.
Thanks a lot, looking forward to meet you!!!!!
A photocopy of your passport or i.d. will be required once you'll have booked your period of your staying.
A few euros extra will be requested for your stay tax (asked from the city of Bologna) once we'll meet at the apartment.
The stay tax will cost you 2 euro per day, each, if you are 2 people sharing the apartment, instead if you are on your own it will be 3 euro.
Don't worry you don't have to pay for your entire staying, if you are planning to rent the apartment for long term...... just the first 5 days.
If you come for less then 5 days, you'll pay just for the days you'll be in Bologna.
In a nutshell: I recommend this apartment and would definitely stay there again. Well furnished, everything functions properly and it is exactly as shown in the pictures Irene and her Mum Piera are lovely persons and great hosts.
Piera and Irene were great! We loved the apartment. It was exactly as shown in the pictures, including three outdoor balconies. The apartment was very close to most attractions, and an easy location from which to catch a bus as well. We cooked some lovely meals in the beautiful kitchen, visited many local markets, and really enjoyed our stay. We highly recommend Bologna on the Roof and would definitely stay here again.
We had a great time- the flat is lovely, very clean and welcoming, great location in the city centre as well!
Thank you very much Irene
This was an excellent choice. Airy, large, clean, comfortable space with a choice of lovely terraces looking out over the Bologna rooftops. We did not meet Irene but communication was great and her delightful mother showed us round the apartment when we arrived. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, although we did not use it a great deal. The apartment is fairly central - only a short stroll from the Strada Maggiore - in a safe pleasant area and there are several excellent places to eat nearby (Osteria La Fontana in Via Fondazza and Vino Al Vino in Strada San Stefano both v.g). Very strongly recommended.
Irene's apartment is a lovely, spacious, light and peaceful place in a quiet central location ideal for exploring Bologna. Irene's mum Piera was very welcoming and helpful when we arrived and during the visit - she also arranged a taxi to the airport for us.
The apartment has secluded, sheltered terraces to enjoy the rooftops and the Bolognese sunshine and has a soulful atmosphere - it feels very cared for.
Irene was very communicative and responsive when we were booking the apartment and came round specially to wish us goodbye as we left.
It's hard to think of a better place to stay in Bologna!!
We stayed a week in Irene house as family. This is house that you end up saying "lucky that's we have airbnb". The photos are definitely insufficient to describe things like the joyfulness of kitchen or how pleasant a sunny day can be in the terrace. Books and great posters everywhere, this is a house that make you feel good. Walking distance to center and lots of things to enjoy around. Both Irina and her mom are really nice and they were extremely helpful.
Irene was very welcoming on arrival especially after our plane had been delayed for four hours. The flat was spotless and beautifully furnished with absolutely everything you would need for your stay including shower gels, shampoos, washing machine,clean towels and beautifully made up beds. There was also a list of recommended restaurants. We went to 2 of the 3 and can't recommend choices highly enough.
