The place was alittle hard to locate, when in the close vicinity, It is off the main roads so in a nice and quiet area. A bus journey to the main centre. Shops and foodie places near by. A little kettle in the rooms, with some tea or coffee would be a nice touch. Rooms big and spacious - bed comfortable, TV


The positives - good location, clean, helpful staff, nice large rooms. The main thing lacking is that this place has no common area to hang in and meet other travelers, no breakfast area (you eat in your room), etc. Its like staying at a hotel where you have your room and that is it. If you are looking for a place to stay its fine but if you want to meet other travelers, share stories, mingle, etc then this is not the place to be.


The man is the kindest person ever. Ive never met such a fear person in my life.


Very nice host. A place with a good, relaxed atmosphere. Included breakfasts can become monotonous if you stay for a few days. Reasonable distance from the city's attractions. A 30 minutes walk to the train station.


We had a great stay, one of the best we have had in itally! Thankyou


It was great, the host is what I call a lovely sweet person. He helped us to find our way and bring us delicious breakfast in the room. It's clean and calm. It's also pretty big! I recommend this place for sure !

We loved our spacious room and our host Andrea was very helpful whenever we asked for help. When we decided to extend our stay and this place was fully booked, he contacted a number of B&Bs nearby and found us another (beautiful) room nearby. The location may seem a bit south to access the train station, but it really wasn't too big a deal and it was perfect for exploring the historic centre of Bologna. Two thumbs up!


Thank you so much for the excellent stay, everything was just perfect!


The room was really large and comfortable, everything (including the shared bathroom) was kept very clean. The host is a welcoming and helpful person, serving breakfast to your room! The location in the old town of Bologna is also very good, but it does take a little while to get from there to the station, especially if you decide to walk :)

Everything really good, big room and bed, good breakfast, shower, attencious staff, 5/10min walk to the city center, and in front of a bus stop to the Central Station. I recommend!
