I do most of my trip planning on TA and rely on the expereince of others. The reviews on Maria and her B & B are outstanding and absolutely correct. She provides a lovely living environment and delicious food. But the most impressive part of our stay was Maria herself. She will give you insight to anything you need to...

John, you are absolutely the most happy guest that i have ever welcome in my B&B and I thank you so much for the lovely review that you put on Tripadvisor which is really precious considering that you are a very expert reviewer. But I want thank you especially for the happiness that you brought in my home during your...

I will get straight to the point. Our recent four night stay was nothing short of fantastic and we would not hesitate to return to Maria's lovely B&B. There really isn't anything more we can say that the other reviewers who provided an excellent rating have said, but I'll try. It is quite obvious that Maria takes great care and...

I stayed a week in this beautiful and comfortable accommodation. It stands out because of the small things that are not provided in other places. Excellent lighting. A magnifying mirror in the bathroom, with a light directly on your face. Easy access to the building and to the apartment, which was clearly explained on arrival. Breakfast was sensational. I needed...

From the first email to Maria, to the last meal, this was a fantastic experience. We started to communicate with Maria months before our trip, she always answered us promptly, full of information about Bologna, and even sent my wife a cookbook as she knew my wife loved to cook. She outlined Bologna, sent us maps, and possible tours, and...

My husband and I spent four days with Maria Ketty in March 2014, visiting Bologna and day-tripping by rail to Ravenna and Ferrara. We found Bologna a bit overwhelming after the tranquility of Venice; Maria's lovely B&B was a convenient and welcome retreat from the crowded streets of the centro historico. We cannot say enough about our hostess; she provided...

A month is not enough in Bologna and certainly not enough in one of Maria Ketty's wonderful apartments.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
My name is Mary Ketty and I personally manage my Bed & Breakfast "Bologna nel Cuore," guaranteeing my guests special care for detail and a warm, welcoming atmosphere with the maximum respect for privacy."Bologna nel cuore" is an intimate and refined Bed & Breakfast situated in an old structure in the centre of Bologna born thanks to the love I feel towards my city. My wish is to leave my guests, Italian or foreign, with a memory of Bologna in their hearts and "Bologna nel cuore" Bed & Breakfast is ideal as an unforgettable stay for those who love the proverbial cordiality of Emilian hospitality. This elegant and welcoming residence is also the perfect solution for those who come to Bologna for business, conventions or other work related matters or for local Bolognesi who wish to host relatives or friends in a homely environment. The central position, just a few steps from the main square Piazza Maggiore, of the Bed & Breakfast "Bologna nel cuore," allows the guests to easily reach on foot the main monuments of the city, including the famous Two Towers. I will be glad to suggest itineraries which will help you discover the major historical and artistic sites, the best restaurants and the most characteristic shops where typical, traditional products of the famous Bolognese gastronomy can be bought. ... more   less
