Giusy purchased this Apartment in 2017
Why Giusy chose Quartiere Saragozza
In La Porta Rossa I put all my know-how in the temporary rent business, accumulated in the last years. It is an apartment that I specially created and furnished in order to operate successfully in this exciting branch of activity.
What makes this Apartment unique
What I liked when I choose La Porta Rossa is the context, the very central zone, the historical, elegant building. Finding a fairly large terrace and a garage are not common features in the center of Bologna. But the most surprising aspect of the apartment is the absolute peace and tranquility that characterizes it.

Better than the Photos
Lovely, clean, large apartment. Great location. Guisy and Marco were very helpful. Would rent again if I were staying in Bologna.
Fabulous Property in the centre of Bologna
We, with a couple of friends, stayed at The Red Door apartment in the centre of Bologna for ten days. The owners, Giuseppina and Marco are so helpful, both before our arrival and when we were guests. Giusy met us when we arrived and showed us around. The apartment is beautifully furnished and comprises of two large bedrooms, two bathrooms (one of which is en suite), a well equipped kitchen with large dining table. There is a large sofa and chair in the seating area with a television. Air-conditioning is in all rooms, also electric window shutters at all windows.
Outside is a large terrace with pot plants, table and chairs with a parasol, a great place to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner if you fancy cooking. There is a Co-op nearby which is well stocked. As other contributors have already said, the apartment is within five minutes of Piazza Maggiore and shopping areas. Restaurants are also nearby. If you, like us, hire a car, it is most convenient to be able to park below the apartment. The payment to Giusy is 25euros per day plus a one off city permit payment of 30euros. We would not hesitate to recommend The Red Door apartment.
Hello Rita,thank you very much indeed for your very positive review of our property. This motivate us to do always better. We are travellers also and we treat our guests as we would like to be trated abroad. Thank you also for having mentioned the parking facility, there are not so many available in medieval Bologna city centre. Just to be more clear for future guests, 30 euro for city permit are meant for a 10 day stay. Take care.

The Red Door
Great location for all the sights of Bologna. Apartment was very quiet, comfortable and stylishly furnished. We really appreciated the air conditioning as we stayed in August! Guiseppina was a lovely host - great communication and very friendly. We would highly recommend this apartment.
Perfect apartment!! Perfect host!!
Wow. What a fantastic experience this was for our family. The apartment was great - roomy, clean, comfortable, air conditioned. The outside patio was beautiful to sit for breakfast or an afternoon coffee. And the location was fabulous - within walking distance to everywhere - restaurants, cafe's, sightseeing.
But perhaps even more impressive was the hospitality of the host. From sharing local places to eat, best places for shopping or a coffee. We drove from Rome so she arranged parking and getting a permit for driving in the ZTL. We could not have asked for a better place to stay for our visit to Bologna!
More important than the pictures - that truly correspond to reality - is what is hidden behind the mirror ! To begin with, the contact with the owner is fluent and most reliable : Giuseppina will answer your questions by email within a few hours and she's eager to help in any way for any purpose at any time : from how to get tickets to enter the Limited Traffic Zone with you car to, on the spot, if you need more of what you can find into the cupboards. Just a few examples : we found different types of coffee and tea, spices, sugar, fresh water, detergent caps for the dishwasher, shampoo, shower products, demakeup cotton balls, soap, sponges and towels of all kind... You just feel at home as soon as you arrive.
When we did, we were welcomed and the apartment was just blinking. The temperature was a most appreciated 21 degrees as the airconditioning had specifically been turned on a few hours before. That was just perfect, Mima !
As for the location, literally everything is at walking distance : there's a Coop supermarket a few hundred meters away and you barely need to walk more than 10 minutes to reach the farthest site to visit in the town center. The environment is calm as the apartment is situated in the ZTL and you can enjoy the large private terrace any time.
You will also find a precise list of what to visit in and out of Bologna as well as different maps and if you don't know how to choose between the numerous places to eat, you can blindly follow the "Where to eat" list, made up with good restaurants according to tastes and budget. You even have the telephone numbers if you want to reserve a table. We chose a different one every evening and they all served excellent food for a really affordable price.
Another thing that we appreciated is the free high speed wireless Internet connection.
We've been touring through Italy for quite a few years now. This apartment, together with the service that goes with it, definitely belongs to the top ! Many thanks !
Spacious, beautifully decorated apartment, in a great location, with a wonderful host
Sweet Guisy met us at the apartment and gave us the tour, as well as many recommendations of restaurants in the area. She was very kind and thorough. The apartment was very clean, spacious, comfortable, and inviting. It was well stocked with everything that we might have needed during our 3 night stay. There are 2 large bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a large kitchen with refrigerator, oven, stove, dishwasher, and microwave, and a washing machine. The living room was very comfortable, and there was a lovely, large balcony available to use during our stay. The building is very secure, with a locking front building door, as well as a locked apartment door. There is an elevator as well. We have stayed in many apartments during our travels through Europe and this was one of the best, not only because of the apartment, but the host as well! We would highly recommend this apartment!
