We stayed at the Antica Residenza for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The Residenza was easy to find after about 10 minutes walk from where we left the Airport Shuttle bus in the City Centre. Roberto's warm and friendly welcome set the tone for the rest of our stay. Over sandwiches and coffee he seemed to take real pleasure in describing Bologna's highlights and in recommending the best places to visit during our stay. The Residenza is part of one floor in a large, typically Italian, residential building. Our room, the Green Suite, was accessed directly from the hotel lounge and was quiet, clean and comfortable. It has a separate lounge area with small table and settee which was great for relaxing. The complimentary wine and fresh fruit was a nice touch. Undoubtedly though the best thing about staying here was the exceptional hospitality. Roberto and his uncle Agostino quickly came to seem like old friends. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they genuinely seem to enjoy helping you to enjoy Bologna. They gave us some excellent restaurant recommendations and rang to make our reservations. Breakfast was typically Italian with a good choice of pastries, yoghurt, fruit etc. and of course Roberto’s superb coffee. We'd definitely stay here again.
