Apartment exactly as described and shown in pictures - a nice base outside of Bologna. One great discovery was the village of S. Giovanni where the apartment is located. Absolutely wonderful people - so kind and welcoming!
Marco was a great host - easy to get ahold of at any time. Was very patient with me when I was lost on my way there. Thanks Marco!
Tutto perfetto, centralissimo e pulito.
We intended to rent an apartment in Bologna, but the choice of Marco's apartment in S. G. in P. was a better one since we traveled from here to Ferrara, Ravenna, Modena, thus avoiding the traffic from Bologna (quite messy). The apartment is located in a 2 stories building without elevator. It is close to railway station and at the same time just few minutes walk from the heart of the city; cross the street is a grocery store where you can buy all you need to prepare a breakfast and also a bar to have the good Italian coffee as the locals do. The apartment looks as featured in the pictures, is cozy and has all the necessary things for a "feel like home" place; there is a free parking area at the back of the building, no problem to find a spot (this is priceless). We have been received by Mrs L. (the housekeeper) and managed to understand each other quite well.
Marco is a great host. He provided us a lot of useful information about local products, local restaurants and he was available at any time by phone & email.
We highly recommend this apartment.
Soggiornare in questo appartamento è stato come essere a casa!
Confortevole, pulito. Arredamento carino e funzionale…
La posizione è strategica, in quanto a due passi dalla stazione e quindi ottimamente collegato per raggiungere subito qualunque destinazione. Inoltre, l'appartamento è comodo perché nelle vicinanze ci sono pressochè tutti i servizi.
La gentilezza, cortesia e disponibilità di Marco rende questa un'ottima soluzione per trascorrere una vacanza tranquilla e rilassante, oltre a costituire un ottimo riferimento per eventuali impegni di lavoro da quelle parti.
Lo consigliamo vivamente! Sonia e Fabio.
Molto confortevole appartamento nel centro di San Giovanni. Molto benvenuto. Persone fantastiche. Tutto è fatto per le vacanze stanno andando bene. Tutto è perfetto ... calorosa accoglienza ... En un mot : "Parfait". Merci beaucoup.
Marco's apartment was great. It was very spacious and it was nice to have a kitchen and laundry machine. It was very easy to find from the train station. The town was very small and had some amazing food and even a night market on the weekend with vendors and music and different competitions. Marco is wonderful for recommendations in the area. Bologna, Modena and Parma are all very close and are wonderful for food tours. We would definitely stay with Marco again.
This couple spent 4 nights in Marco's comfortable, compact flat and found it ideally positioned to explore the main attractions of Emilia-Romagna including Bologna, Modena, Reggio-Emilia. The flat was opposite the supermarket and 5 mins walk from the train station. Marco was always available by phone to assist with any enquiries, even though overseas during our stay. The indefatigable Laura was extremely helpful about the flat, the village and the area. The flat is in a converted mill and has adequate space, the kitchen although small has most mod cons all in working order. The bedroom was a god size with comfortable bed. Bathroom had a bath/ shower and was also the laundry. The air con was appreciated during the hot spell we encountered. WiFi was slow and erratic, but adequate for email but not downloading. Recommended.
This was the last leg of our trip to Italy and it worked out very well. Marco helped me set up the wi fi and was available 24/7. His cleaning lady (within the apartment complex) was available the first day to explain everything but forgot to mention how to get some heat in the apartment. I was unable to make contact with her as her husband probably forgot to tell her I wanted to talk with her about the heat and the TV.
The apartment itself was very well designed but had many steps to reach the BR and bath upstairs as you can see in the photos. The only problem I saw was that it was on an upper level (3rd floor in USA) with no elevator. There were many steps and levels to get there and then you had to climb more stairs to go to the bathroom. This would not be a problem for those under 60 with good health but not for those 65+. I would rate this apartment 5 stars if it was on the first floor.
Marco's apartment is excellent. Plenty of room good kitchen with plenty of equipment. It is very close to railway station so easy to visit other places. San Giovanni has plenty of shops, bars, cafés and restaurants. Also an excellent bakery. There is free parking at the back of his apartment block. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to explore Emilio romagna.
This place was a rescue stop for us we hade been traveling to long, to many restaurant meals and movement we needed to stop and cook. The description and other reviews are accurate its a fab little apartment, Marco is totally on the ball with bookings and communication, the location is great everything great thumbs up all round. The internet was as described and we managed we where unable to find a bar with wifi. If you stayed in summer and the windows where open you would get quite a lot of traffic noise. We slept, cooked, washed clothes, caught trains to interesting places, re grouped and enjoyed our 4 nights here greatly, Thank you Marco though we never met you. OB
My first EVER review ... Marco is a happy kinda Guy . We communicated before his stay via email and I was able to check out his details on airbnb .
He is very open with a good sense of humour .He was clean and tidy .
I would most certainly have him to stay again
