The property was exactly how it was described and the host was exceptionally nice and helpful.
Perfectly positioned in the middle of town, really fully equipped with anything you might need.
We will definitely come back and recommend to stay here for any one visiting Bologna.
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.
The accomodation is located in a beautiful and quiet area of Bologna, great point to discover the city from. The apartment itself is very cosy and nicely decorated, with very comfortable bedding. It is superb for a pair of friends (or sisters, in our case), since two sleeping areas are separated by a partition, which gives just enough privacy. Irene's mother Piera welcomed us on the day of arrival and gave us all the explanations about the house. Practically, she was always there to help us with all our problems. On the day on our departure when our taxi didn't come, she called another taxi for us and saved us from being late for the train. And yes, when we arrived, there were a bowl of fruit on the table and a bottle of mineral water waiting for us:)
The apartment of Irene is absolutely great, very cosy, comfortable, warm and full of light. The location is perfect, very close to the city center and at the same time there is everything necessary around (shops, bars, etc.). The apartment is located in an old and beautiful building, being inside you have a feeling of being in a museum :)
Irene and her mother are very hospitable and always ready to help.
Highly recommend to choose this place for vacation in Bologna :)
I have a pleasant stay. Very well located studio, in the heat of the very historical Bologna. clean and warm. Well prepared and has everything that a person may need during his short stay. I had a very warm welcome with some fruits from Irene's mother who should me around and explained everything. I have also met Irene who was very supportive and welcoming.
I enjoyed my stay, Bologna is my second home and I enjoyed walking through the history everyday from Irene's place to anywhere in the city. Thank you Irene and mama!
Will certainly visit you in my next visit to bologna!
Ottima accoglienza, appartamento molto bello e comodo. Preziosi i suggerimenti di Irene e della sua famiglia per scoprire angoli nascosti di Bologna e trattorie tipiche.
What a lovely apartment! We met Irene's mother upon arrival, and she showed us how everything worked and made us feel right at home. We met Irene later in the trip, and she could not have been more friendly and inviting. She has thought of everything: she has a laminated list of restaurants ready to go, numbers for a cab service, and a whole tray of information on how to enjoy the city. She is just a delight! Molto gentile!
The unit is big, clean, well laid out, and warmly modern. The living
room and dining area were spacious and great for relaxing. The twin beds were comfortable. It was great to have a washing machine during a longer stay, and cleaning products were accessible for us to tidy up. The small kitchen was well equipped. We were here during winter, so we did not use the small side garden or larger back garden at all, but both were lovely. Of note, we were looking for a ground floor apartment that might accommodate an older relative for a future trip, and this one was excellent: just two steps up into the unit, and only a couple of small steps within the actual apartment between the office and the bedroom.
The neighborhood was familiar to us already. There are fruit vendors, two bakeries, multiple meat markets, and several groceries all within two blocks. It's about a 12-minute walk to the center of the city. There are excellent restaurants on Broccaindosso, as well as a craft brewery just steps from the entrance. And of course, there's the city of Bologna just steps from your door. Highly recommended.
A lovely place in a lovely city. Irene and her mom made us feel very welcome and the apartment itself is beyond charming. It is up several flights of stairs though so this apartment wouldn't work for the mobility impaired.
There are some shops and restaurants very close and all the major sights (and many more great shops and restaurants!) are a short walk away.
Bologna's restaurants have such good food but if you want to cook, the bright and roomy kitchen has all you need. It was too cold to enjoy the deck when we were there but I'll just have to come back some other time to enjoy sitting there with some wine and cheese.
My only other note is that the wifi signal is a little weak and might not work throughout the entire place (only the bedroom for us) so if you were hoping to sit inside all day on the Internet, you can't. Everything else was wonderful.
Appartamento super carino e centralissimo. Irene e sua madre sono state veramente gentili e super (website hidden) tornerei senz'altro
Irene's apartment in Bologna was perfect for our trip. The pictures are exactly how the apartment is laid out and decorated. It is small but with 2 twin beds is perfect for friends traveling (and the beds were very comfortable!). The kitchen and bathroom have all the necessities you'll need. Internet and hot water worked the whole time, which was a huge relief from our first apt in Venice. Highly recommend Irene's apartment and Bologna for your trip to Italy!
