A good central base for a summer holiday
We liked this apartment a lot. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and clean, and the kitchen was well-equipped for self-catering. One suggested improvement would be to replace the sofas in the living room as they weren’t very comfortable. However, it didn’t affect us as the weather was wonderful and we spent most of our time outside - reading, eating and drinking on the apartment’s lovely lower terrace. We would certainly consider returning for another summer visit.
My husband and I and a friend stayed a week in Susanna’s apartment and could have happily stayed a month. It is very comfortable, squeaky clean, convenient to everything. The air conditioning worked great and quickly. The terraces are truly delightful. Susanna was kind and responsive.
Bologna is well worth at least a week’s exploration. We liked it more each day we were there. The Piazza San Stefano is one of the most beautiful urban spots I have ever seen. Sitting on a cafe terrace there drinking a spritz on a summer evening is my idea of heaven.
Thank you very much for your review Leslie, it was a pleasure hosting you, your husband and your friend here in Bologna, I'm very glad to read you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll come back soon! Best, Susanna
Good but could be better?
Bologna is a bit off the “tourist track” but an interesting alternative to more familiar Italian site seeing. This is a good apartment, but the impression you get is that having once been a home, it has subsequently been kept “in the family.” As that may be the case an upgrade is likely overdue. The outside patio is a real plus, and really nice restaurants are within walking distance.
Thank you for your review Robert, I’m renting the apartment since 2011 and I’m glad that with its libraries packed with English novels and essays, the huge old tv screen in the living room and the collection of vhs classics it resembles a home where someone (my father, a university professor and movie critic) lived and not an anonymous hotel. Hope you enjoyed yourselves in town. Best, Susanna
Great apartment exactly as described is a very useful location.
We were 2 senior couples. We walked from the station with luggge and all around town from this very well located apartment. The apartment itself was great. Everything we needed and a great roof terrace. Host communication was very good and flexible with our arrival time which was delayed.
Thank you very much Ralph. You were the perfect guests, clean friendly and respectful. Hope you will come back soon! Best, Susanna
