Francesco and Elena were most welcoming and took time and trouble to point out the sights and give us advice. The accommodation is really just one big room with a kitchen partition off and an internal bathroom. The bathroom was pretty basic, but there was hot water and everything worked. It is about a kilometre from the centre of Bologna, but there are a lot of buses. Francesco pointed out that there were a lot of restaurants in the parallel street and we found one which we really liked. At night you have a choice - either shut the windows and the shutters and shut out the light and the noise, or have fresh air with the windows open. This sounds a bit negative, but we really enjoyed our stay and liked our hosts very much.
Our host, Marina, could not have been more helpful and welcoming. The location was quiet yet within a few minutes walk of all the sites. The property was lovely with all the facilities we needed including excellent air conditioning and was beautifully, furnished/decorated in an authentic style for what was an original old building in the centre of Bologna. We felt secure and comfortable and would return and happily recommend to anyone who wants a proper Italian experience.
