“Stunning, luxurious, quiet, central with a warm welcome”

Maria Cristina and Gastone are lovely hosts, so welcoming and helpful, their apartment is just a few minutes walk from the town centre, along wonderful porticos (good if it's raining). The apartment is light spacious comfortable (especially the bed) and quiet, it looks out over a lovely garden at the back of the palazzo and the roof terrace upstairs is private and very spacious and has panoramic views, we managed to have 3 days sunbathing even in late october. The apartment is scrupulously clean and the kitchen is well organised and has everything you could want. There is a fairly large supermarket just across the street and many restaurants and cafes just next door. We have stayed in many apartments and we rate this one as the best, we are going to go back again next year!

“Perfect location in a beautiful City”
Reviewed 16 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed for three nights. Received a warm and friendly welcome from Marie Cristina and Gastone. Apartment has everything you need for a comfortable stay. We were attracted by the outside rooftop views and they do not disappoint. A lovely place for eating and relaxing.

The apartment is close to all of the fabulous buildings and shops in Bologna and so walking around the city was a pleasure as everything is nearby. Although Bologna is famous for its restaurants having the opportunity to buy and cook fresh pasta in the apartment was a real bonus. That and the space was the real difference between hotels and apartments.

If you struggle with stairs then this is not for you. But to live in an old building with great rooftop views you must expect there to be a lot of stairs. And there are. Both up to the apartment and inside. But if they are not a problem then I recommend the apartment.

“Wow! What a view!”
Reviewed 8 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed here in early May and were blessed with wonderful weather. This enhanced our use of the rooftop terrace and exploration of this vibrant city. Atelier de Marcello is a beautiful apartment so sensitively decorated & equipped for guests. You can tell that it has been lovingly created. Some mornings it was difficult to leave the terrace to head towards visitor attractions! Atelier de Marcello is also well appointed, just five minutes walk from the Two Towers, which leads to the Quadrilatero and Piazza Maggiore. If you read the description, you will see that there are 60+ steps which lead to the entrance of the Atelier. As two senior citizens this did not cause a problem and compensated for yet another antipasti! The hosts, Maria Christina and Gastone were so helpful & informative. They are there to support your stay but are not intrusive. Our last evening was spent in the Trattoria, just a few doors down on the right. What a welcome, with all local food and wine! We have loved our stay at Atelier de Marcello and have no reservations in recommending it. We plan to come again for a week next Spring.

“Comfortable apartment with great views”
Reviewed 10 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

The location of this apartment was great, within the old city area and about a block away from from some of the main tourist attractions. There are quite a few stairs to get to the apartment and the reward for this are the great views - overlooking courtyards, city rooftops, and the countryside beyond - a view hard to match in this very built-up part of town. The apartment is split-level with the living area on the top level maximising the views. Maria Cristina and Gastone were very welcoming and helpful, and the walk to the San Luca monastery they recommended was a welcome opportunity for some exercise.
