An elegant neo-classical mansion designed by architect Gordini in the early 20th century, Villa Benni is beautifully set in a wide park dotted with clusters of ancient trees. The place is an oasis of peace and tranquillity, far from the noisy city traffic, yet just a stone's throw from the centre of Bologna and easily reached from either the railway station or the airport. The Mazzini family, who are in charge of the villa, are pleased to welcome their guests inside this architectural jewel, where the atmosphere is elegant and refined.
Villa stupenda, accoglienza cordiale ma discreta, e la migliore colazione che abbiamo fatto negli ultimi anni. Abbiamo degli amici che vivono nelle vicinanze e che andiamo a trovare abbastanza spesso, quindi speriamo di poter tornare presto.
Beautiful place in a great setting. Convenient location just a 15 minute walk to the city center. Friendly hosts.
One little quirk is that you don't get a key for the common areas meaning you have to get buzzed in and out of the complex when leaving/entering. Fine in most situations but a little inconvenient when our dog got sick.
Overall a very good experience.
Accueil chaleureux par les parents de Marcella, qui nous font visiter la maison (le palais) et choisir notre chambre en fonction des disponibilités.
Un bon café italien avant de partir en promenade: Centre ville à 15 minutes à pieds.
Cette maison nous avait été recommandée par nos enfants qui y ont séjourné pour leur plus grand plaisir...et pour le nôtre.
Petits déjeuners copieux et délicieux, très italiens.
Despite a late arrival of around 11 P.M. we were welcomed very graciously by Marcella and her family. We were greeted at the gate and given instructions on where to park. Marcella and her parents greeted us and brought us to the room. The room was just as described, and was very unique. We had a wonderful breakfast in the morning and had an great experience overall. If you are considering a stay in Bologna, this is an excellent option. We would love to return someday.
Notre séjour à la Villa Benni a été mémorable. Tout était parfait. C'est encore mieux que sur les photos. Marcella, son frère et ses parents sont des gens très chaleureux et fantastiques. Ils nous ont concocté tout un souper lors de notre première soirée. Le père de Marcella est un excellent chef. Merci pour tout ! Nous recommandons cet endroit à tous ceux qui veulent vivre des moments mémorables.
Siamo stati a Bologna in questo B&B solo per una notte, tuttavia il pur breve soggiorno è stato sufficiente per apprezzare il fascino di una splendida dimora storica, la disponibilità, la gentilezza e la familiarità dei padroni di casa, la cura con la quale tutto è gestito.
La colazione servita all'aperto nel magnifico parco, con un servizio accurato ed elegante ed una ricchezza di cibi gustosi e fragranti è stata un'esperienza multisensoriale memorabile.
Just amazing. If you have not booked Villa Benni yet and your dates happen to be available, BOOK IT NOW!!! You will be so happy you did!! This mansion is even more magical and beautiful than the pictures and is set inside it's own park behind massive iron gates, and only 15 minutes walk to the city center of Bologna. We felt like royalty staying there and absolutely loved the people!! Our welcome was warm and inviting and the breakfast every morning in the garden was freshly baked and exquisite!! WIFI was perfect and reliable, the room was refreshed daily, and communication was quick and easy!! We cannot wait to come back and were so sad to leave after only 4 days! Book Now before you miss out and you will have an amazing time! This was our favorite B&B ever (out of 20+ we have stayed at in Europe) and it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
