The apartment is appointed very well with everything that you could possibly need. There are toiletries in the bathroom (bath and separate shower) and Valeria even supplied a continental breakfast with juice, milk, butter and jams to accompany the bread and pastries she supplied.
The location is very central and easily walkable from the train station.
The apartment is on the first floor with no elevator but you can manage luggage on the stairs without any problems.
My only reason for 4.5 stars rather than 5 stars is the noise from neighbors and the street below. Valeria had said that it can be a little loud but after 2 nights with no sleep I feel that it should be noted for other guests. For some people the noise may not be a problem.
Valeria is a wonderful host and her apartment is lovely in a very secure area. We felt very safe here and loved the city of Bologna.
I also recommend trying Nicola's Pizzeria in Piazza San Martino, just a minute along the road from the apartment.
We used Casa Marsala for a 4 night stay in October. We didn't need to use many of the facilities that the apartment had, but everything that you might need seemed to be there. It has a nice, secure entrance through a main door and then a secondary locked gated door. The apartment itself is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Valeria did advise that it could be noisy at certain times and I guess this might be the only slight negative. However, it was not bad enough to put us off using the apartment again, which we hope to do. There were also a lot of nice touches provided by the host.
Great location to enjoy central Bologna-able to walk to most desired locations. The apartment comes with all conveniences including a washing machine. Valeria is a hands on owner who keeps the apartment beautifully clean.
The property consists of one bedroom and a comfortable sofa bed in the living room that can be closed off. Really enjoyed the accommodations and would happily stay again.
Less than 5 minutes walk from the two towers and central Bologna, the location is perfect for a city break. The flat is clean, well furnished and equipped with everything you need (the bed is very comfy!). The owner, Valeria, was lovely and could not have been more helpful and was quick to respond to any queries, even arranging for a new cot, highchair and other things for our baby. Highly recommended.
In March of 2018 we rented 33 Casa Masala in Bologna Italy.it was absolutely wonderful very large and just renovated so comfortable. The lovely owner thought of everything much much more than most vacation rentals. She stocked apartment with water blood oranges,bananas and lemons all types of coffees and teas cookies,breads and everything we needed for breakfast or snacks at home. When we requested an American style coffee pot we received it instantly. The apt is located within walking distance to wonderful restaurants and city center. We enjoyed our time there so many extra touches made our trip special. If you are looking for a comfortable and wonderful vacation rental in Bologna check this one out .You will not be disappointed.
