My boyfriend and I had spent the last two weeks traveling throughout Italy and this was our final stop before returning back home. It was a wonderful way to close the trip and especially nostalgic since I had lived and studied in Bologna previously. The B&B is well situated, very close to the main square Piazza Maggiore. The space itself...

We were fortunate to book Topazio for late May. Although we arrived after midnight after a flight from Stansted, Maria - the apartment owner - had stayed up to greet us and to see us settled in. 'Details', she said, 'can wait until morning'. Not alone that welcome, she also agreed that we could have breakfast in her B& B...

Bologna has become my favorite city in Italy with one of the contributing factors being the possibility of staying with Maria Ketty in her wonderful B&B. For this year's trip four of us stayed in Topazio. The apartment offers some privacy in the way it is configured, but the kitchen and living room are perfect for group meals and gatherings....

I could have stayed here for months! The apartment stay is so comfortable with every small detail so meticulously thought out. All the comforts of home and more, however what truly makes this apartment, located in an excellent location, is Maria, the host. She is kind, genuine, provides excellent restaurant recommendations, and makes you feel at home.

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
