Having travelled through Italy many times and stayed at numerous rental apartments, I consider this among my favourites.
This time I travelled with my 79-year old mother, and we were both very content with the accommodation.
First, the location is superb. Via Del Pratello is a narrow street of historic buildings not open to car traffic. It has plenty of small bars and shops and feels very safe.
A major street, Via Marconi, where there is a bus stop (we used #21 and #30 to get to the train station, 5-7 minutes ride) and a taxi stop, is at a minute’s walk from the apartment. Two grocery stores (PAM and PAM local) are 5 min walk away. Also, a fine food market (Mercato Delle Erbe) is very close.
The apartment is on the ground floor of a historic house, As the space has very high ceilings, the sleeping area and the bathroom has been cleverly placed on a split level. The stairs to the upper level have a hand-railing and my mother had no trouble with it at all. The beds can be separated or moved together easily.
There were many aspects we found delightful: the design, the furniture, the old ceiling beams, the feeling of spaciousness, the elegant bathroom, the comfortable bedding, etc. Everything was very clean.
The kitchen is rather small but we found it more than adequate for preparing quick meals.
The proprietor Giulio was a very kind host and also made the the check-in and check-out a breeze.
To sum up, it was a visit that is a pleasure to remember, and should I return to Bologna, I would book it again without hesitation.

We stayed one week and found it beautifully located, comfortable, and well priced. We were able to discover all parts of the city from this base. Great to be able to come home and rest up, then go out again. Great to have internet! The owner Giulio was extremely friendly and helpful. We definitely would stay there again.
