Great location

  • 4 of 5

Acinelli apartment is very well set up and in a perfect location to walk to all the major sites in Bologna and enjoy the atmosphere of this charming city. We received a very friendly welcome from Francesca who was extremely helpful not only with tips to enhance our time in Bologna, but with organising a taxi for an early morning departure. Many thanks Francesca.

The Heart of Bologna

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment. The weather happened to be particularly hot and the air conditioning worked perfectly and kept us cool. The location is convenient to historic Bologna, the university, excellent restaurants and shopping and the train station. Francesca met us at the apartment and was helpful throughout our stay.

Apartment was just right -- exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

There can't be anything more centrally located! The apartment was clean, had a nice layout, and was comfortably though not elaborately furnished. For those who want to eat in, the Quadrilatero (old market) begins a half block away. The Piazza, only a block away, is among the most elegant and impressive in Italy. And there is a good supply of cultural venues, as one would expect in a university town. We easily filled up our four days with interesting activities. The only negative we would mention is the street noise at night -- perhaps to be expected with as many younger people as we saw on the streets, but still the noise was bothersome far later into the night than we had expected (even with the windows closed). Still, a wonderful stay for us.

Memorable stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, feel like a local, walking distance to bakery for breakfast, clean facilities, ample closet space. I would only add a lamp or 2 to make the living room a little cozier at night. Now there is only one standing lamp and a ceiling lamp.
