We had a very big room, the location is excellent and Marco was very helpful and friendly, storing the cheese and meats we bought in his friend and booking us an early taxi to the airport. He also gives you a hand drawn... More

Really nice decorated, quiet and cozy room in the middle of Bologna. Highly recommended. The owner has a personal made map with suggestions of restaurants that are low profile and delicious. Wifi excellent. I didn't try the breakfast but looked really tasty. Definitely a place to stay in Bologna.

Quaint rooms in a super central area. Walking distance to this beautiful city centre. Marco, the owner, is very helpful & friendly host. VERY good value for money for the bedroom & great continental breakfast.

This was our second trip to Bologna, and we were really happy that Marco still had a room available, because last time it was just amazing. This time, it was even better. The room was really beautiful and comfortable. The breakfast included everything, bread, cake, fruits, yoghurt, jam, nutella, cereals, espresso, tea, milk... We will definitely stay again at Marco's... More

Marco was marvelous host. He was so polite and friendly, always smiling and let us feel comfortable immediately. He had great tips and hints where to go and what to do in Bologna (including a nice illustrated map of Bologna). This was very helpful.
