The Space

Please, take two minutes to read entirely the description :)

Sometimes I rent a bed in my lovely and sunny living room. The bed is a real double bed (extremely comfortable, new mattress) separated by furniture and a piano, and it is available for very short stays. The room has two big windows, and also a couch, a little table with a chair and a bookshelf for guest's use. No other people sleep in the room, and I assure plenty of privacy.

Use of shared bathroom is included. Please tell me in advance if you would like to use the kitchen.

Location of the apartment is very central and very close to Piazza Malpighi (5 min.), a crucial public transportation square, and Piazza Maggiore (10 min.). Main art attractions are at a walkable distance, and also main nightlife places, like Via del Pratello.

I'm a working mother, I like to go out, to do sports, to enjoy events in my city, to hang out with friends.
Sometimes I might have other long term guests.
My motto is "Make yourself home!". I made friends for a life with airbnb, I like to help guests in anything they need, and to hang out with them, if they like as well and if I have time.

I must say in advance that my house is an old one and not perfect, I periodically plan to renovate and modernize some parts of it by myself, which of course requires time and money. Actually I am planning very soon the renovation of painting on walls, so please apologize me if you are coming and I still have to do the work.

Even if an old one, I am very affectionated to this apartment, which was the house of a great and famous poet, writer and film director during his teenage in mid forties - Pier Paolo Pasolini, for the ones who know him.

Please also take note that this (email hidden)d in house!
We are very open, warm and helpful people who trust in people, that's why check in is available at any time (with a welcoming tea of coffee :), you will have your own keys and no deposit is asked for coming here, but please understand that sometimes I don't have the time to put everything in the perfect order. Staying at my place is a genuine italian family experience. If you are looking for a warm, friendly and welcoming place, this could be the right place for you. If, instead, you are looking for a perfect and aseptic place, a hotel room could work better :)

Please write before booking, and if you stayed well or if you have suggestions about how I could improve my accomodation, a review is very well appreciated :-)

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I had a really awesome stay in bologna thanks to Eleonora and her hospitality! We had some great chats, she's a thoughtful and very warm person. Her flat has a lot of character and is very centrally located, within close proximity to the city center. I was happy staying there and am sure that future guests would share my sentiments.

  • Eleonora was an absolutely fantastic host! Clean apartment, great location. We got along great, she provided me with maps of the city and invited me out to the bar with her and her charming friends. Not a single complaint. As well, Eleonora was very easygoing about dropping off the keys etc.

    COULD NOT BE MORE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! I'll certainly be returning.

  • I had a wonderful experience staying here. Eleonora is a lovely person - kind, helpful and funny, and she and her son Tommasso are very accommodating. The apartment is full of life, and sharing with other guests adds to its vibrancy. The location is perfect too..in a quiet area but only ten minutes walk from Piazza Maggiore. I felt very much at home here, and really enjoyed or chats.
    Grazie mille Ele, e a presto!

  • On my trip through italy Bologna was one of the nicest stops, manly due to staying at Eleonora's place. She is a really friendly and helpful person full of tips about things to see and do in the city or just to have a talk about things. The apartment is near the centre but just off the main road so you don't have the cars buzzing by all the time, which is nice. Highly recommended!

  • I stayed at Eleanora's house for one night. The house is very strategic. It is not far from the city center and you can find almost all the things you want near her house.
    She is a wonderful host! I really had a great time staying at her place. The house is really nice, so does the people who live there. She's very willing to help me. Showing me the direction to go to some places. Providing the guest with a city map, etc!

    If you have any chance to go to Bologna, Eleanora's place is highly recommended for you, guys!

  • Esperienza perfetta :) Eleonora è stata sempre gentile e disponibilissima per qualsiasi cosa, ed è una persona davvero simpatica e interessante :)
    Ho passato solo una notte li, ma quando tornerò a Bologna ricontatterò sicuramente lei ;)

  • Extraordinary hospitality, great human encounter. Thank you airbnb for the opportunity of meeting such a wonderful person.

  • My girlfriend and I stayed at Eleonora's for only one night. I wish we had stayed longer! She was an exceptional host and provided everything we could want. We even met up for an aperitivo and went to see a local rock band. The room was cozy, and we never felt it was lacking in privacy. I would happily stay with her again.

I am an actress, I love food, wine, beer (as you can see from my profile photo) and mankind! I really like to travel as well as my lovely guests, and everytime I meet someone new through airbnb, I smile and I travel a little with them, dreaming about close or far destinations. If I have time, it's a pleasure for me to hang out with the people I host; if not, anyway I do my best for them making themselves home, having a good time and making the most in this amazing city where I live that is Bologna. My house is not perfect, and I am not perfect, also! But I strongly believe in human beings, and it's such an interesting thing to get in contact with people raised in different cultures. If you would like to "taste" a "slice" of italian way of life, as well as of pizza, I´ll be happy to host you in my place! :-)
