Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • Renzo's studio is placed in an absolutely perfect spot, in a very small but perfectly quiet street right in the center of this uterly charming city. Everything was acording to the discription, as well as to everything I had already read from other guests. Every detail in the flat is very thoughtfull and usefull. I only stayed for a couple of nights, but I think this would be the perfect spot for a longer visit for two people.

  • L'expérience que nous as fait vivre Renzo est exactement ce à quoi on s'attendait avec Air B&B.

    Un très bon accueil, une description complète des lieues, des alentours et en prime une tonne de petites douceurs alimentaires de quoi satisfaire nos appétits gourmands.

    L'appartement est parfaitement situé très près de la place Maggiore, il est très propre et contient toutes les commodités et même plus, tout y est.

    Il y a aussi une petite cours semi-privée calme très agréable pour l'apéro.
    Ah oui, il y a même l'air climatisé.

    Je recommande chaudement, n'hésitez pas!

  • Renzo's flat is absolutely perfect! It's location is ideal - you can easily reach the centre of Bologna as well as loads of amazing restaurants! Renzo had left lots of food essentials (bread, milk, juice, yogurts, jam, butter etc.) in the flat for us which was a really nice touch. A lovely apartment!

  • First time using airbnb. We booked two nights in Bologna. We had read many good words about our host Renzo. However, could it be all true? Yes, it is. Renzo’s apartment is well located, has everything you need, even more. Moreover, Renzo is that kind of host, you normally only meet, when you stay at a friend’s place. Kind, caring and thoughtful. With other words, if you are thinking of staying in Bologna, try that “studio in bologna historic center”. It is well worth. We enjoyed our staying, and we will be back in September.

  • We had a wonderful time in Renzo's apartment. The flat has excellent location right in the city centre. It has everything what you need, comfortable bed, air-conditioning, enough space, a little terrace and all facilities. It is really perfect as it is and I can highly recommend to anybody traveling to Bologna. Renzo gave us very useful information beforehand, including a tip on local traditional restaurant in the neighborhood - where we actually went back twice, it was just unbelievably delicious. He was very helpful during our trip, such an excellent host.

  • I cannot recommend Renzo's apartment enough. My partner and I stayed at Del Riccio for four days and we did not want to leave. The apartment is clean, well-lit, well-stocked, and beautifully and simply furnished. We had been in Italy for almost a week, feeling a little exhausted but thrilled to be in Bologna, and Renzo's apartment is such that we truly felt like we were coming home at the end of each day. The location is so close to the center, but not noisy. The bed is really comfortable -- we slept so well. The little patio just outside the apartment glass doors is icing on the cake. We weren't able to say bye to Renzo because of timing, but meeting him at the start of our stay was a joy. He was so helpful and generous. Before we arrived, he was incredibly responsive to any questions we had. In addition to stocking the apartment with food and plenty of kitchenware if you'd like to cook yourself, he also left us about a dozen brochures related to events going on in Bologna during our stay. We didn't want to leave! Thank you, Renzo! You are a fantastic host!

Artista naturalista
Vivo in mezzo alla natura sulla collina bolognese, ma sono legato a due città in particolare, Venezia e Bologna, per avervi trascorso un periodo lungo e bellissimo della mia vita. I miei interessi coincidono con il mio lavoro di artista naturalista e negli ultimi anni mi sono anche dedicato alla realizzazione di documentari didattici sulla geologia e la paleontologia, due scienze per le quali ho una grande passione. Anche la musica e la pittura figurativa di ogni epoca sono interessi che coltivo da sempre.
