We stayed in Bologna for 2 1/2 weeks for work. i masCa's manager was fantastic. She went well over the call of duty helping us with small things (getting to a pharmacy, helping find celiac friendly restaurants, etc.) The space was clean, efficient, and perfect for our needs. I recommend it 100%

We stayed 6 nights in one of these wonderful apartments. Maria Elisa was beyond exceptionally helpful. My husband is allergic to fragrances, so she located a special dry cleaner to launder the linens for us so they would be 100% smell free (which they were)! She also arranged pick-up for us at the airport and provided a wealth of information... More

We stayed in I MasCa apartments the end of May on the 1st floor in a lovely apartment which is wheelchair friendly with everything you need to enjoy a stay in Bologna. There is a lift which has its idiosyncrasies. The apartment is managed by Maria Elisa who is very helpful and obliging and is on the premises during working... More

I rented an apartment here for 3 weeks during an extended stay in the lovely town of Bologna and was so pleased with the accommodation. Modern and well equipped. Walking distance to all major sights. Maria Elisa and Ansamma were always extremely helpfully with any request or question I had. I would definitely return to I masCá for future visits... More

We rented for 3 nights and got a great rate, due to a last minute cancellation. During major trade shows, accommodation prices in Bologna can triple (including at this residence), yet we paid only 80 E/ night during the big March Book Fair. The apartment was huge and well equipped for long stays: Ironing board, clothes drying rack, etc etc... More

I am an American staying in Bologna for the year, and I needed an apartment for visiting friends. On 2 occasions I booked with i masCa' and was very happy with both apartments. They are near the University, secure, cozy, modern and the well-equipped kitchens allowed us to save tons of money by cooking and entertaining at home. The staff... More

I spend almost 1 month looking for a place to stay in downtown Bologna, which is a difficult task giving the small size of the downtown area, and the high number of students coming to the city. I was looking for some kind of "all-inclusive/corporate housing", and I Masca was just a perfect fit. I arranged everything through e-mail (they... More

“Disabilty rooms are large”

“The elevator is shut off at some times, when the personnel are not on site. You may want to ask for a lower floor unit. I would opt for a unit facing the street but that is a purely personal preference.”

“Both times we had apartments with windows off the street, so noise is not a problem. I would ask if they have an apartment with an inner courtyard--these are especially nice.”
