The most fantastic place to stay in Bologna.Salvatore and his team were outstanding with their welcome and friendly service.Everything was perfect.We felt very privileged to stay in this beautiful suite.Breakfast was amazing and the coffee made perfect.We will recommend to our friends and family in Australia.
We stayed at 051 for a 'significant' birthday trip to Bologna the last week in September 2019. It is a fantastic place to stay and a great location for exploring Bologna. it is literally 1 minute walk away from the two towers and within easy reach of the rest of the centre of the city. Our room was just what was needed for a city break. Very clean, modern stylish and comfortable. The hosts were brilliant - easy going, helpful, friendly and happy to help in any way that they could. It was great to return from a day of sight seeing to be welcomed with iced tea, coffee, or a range of other types of tea (and cake!).
Thank you 051 team. You certainly made our trip memorable. We highly recommend 051 and will have no hesitation in returning there again at some point in the future.

Our taxi had to let us out a bit down the narrow one way street from the obscure hotel entrance.
Once we found the door and buzzed in, we found the small elevator ( a blessing when having two heavy suitcases) up to the hotel proper on the 2nd floor. Check n was fast and efficient.
Our room was clean and comfortable with a Q-size bed. There was a large step up to the modern bathroom which we were concerned that we might trip over or fall from in the night. Wifi in the room was good.
The main complaint is it is noisy early in the morning, with sounds of furniture dragging invading the room. The floors are solid stone which seems to transmit sound easily. The noise was probably other guest dragging their roller suitcases upstairs around the rooms and hallways.
The hotel comprises 2 floors of an old building in the heart of old Bologna. The near by twin towers provide a convenient landmark for finding your way the hotel.
The hotel is a great central base to explore old Bologna once you get orientated.
Breakfast was basic Italian: boiled egg, cheese, cure meats, yogurt, bread and pastries, coffee, tea, couple of unnamed juices. Pastries were very good.
I guess this place doesn't need yet another great review, but I can't help myself.
we loved it.
rather than pile on to the other good comments, here is some advice
it's right next to a Hot Dog Place. this is important, as it's easy to miss it as you walk along.
sit in the common room for a little while. they have unique art pieces there, and it's very pleasant. it's too tempting to drop your bags and run around Bologna, and it's well worth it to sit around a little.
also, it's called 051 because that's the area code for Bologna.
In summary, stay there, you won't be sorry.
Fabulous stay at these apartments
Perfect location for central Bologna
Friendly and informative staff
Clean, spacious and quirky suites
Definitely would recommend
Only criticism would be its not necessary to be given 4 keys on a heavy key holder as its not practical to carry around.
