..we could hardly believe it! A wonderful experience with everything just right. A class act! And it was made so by the charming Roberta and her husband. We loved chatting to them over breakfast and learning about Bologna and Italy. The accommodation was ideal, a large and comfortable bedroom and bathroom with a private hall and entrance. Lots of lovely... More

There are so many comments about Roberta being such a nice and welcoming person that you might start thinking that it's exaggerated, well...it's not ! Don't think that staying at Benelli B&B is like staying at any other place; it's more like staying at your long lost italian relative. Since Roberta rents only one bedroom, it's easy to get that...

I stayed in B&B Benelli when I attended a conference nearby. I was simply looking for convenience, and instead stumbled on the best accommodation in my whole two weeks trip. To start, the owner is a most charming, accommodating and personable host. It was also supplied with an abundance of maps and books on what to see and do in... More

This was our second visit to this bed and breakfast, and, if possible, it surpassed even last year's experience. Everything about this bed and breakfast is perfect: a fully-stocked room, a wonderful breakfast, a great neighborhood for walking, access to the wonders of Bologna, and, most important, a perfect host. Roberta is a life-long resident of the city who is... More

From the moment we rang the doorbell at B&B Benelli we knew that it was going to be a special time. Roberta greeted us and explained everything we needed to make our visit comfortable.

We stayed at B&B Benelli for 3 nights (24th - 26th Oct). As B&B operators (“B&B Wanulla” in Toowoomba, Qld Australia) we really appreciated the marvellous welcome & warm hospitality that Roberta provided to us. Roberta has thought of everything to make for a comfortable stay. Breakfasts were outstanding with beautiful fresh local produce & home baked pastries & cakes.... More
