OLYMPIA - Elegant and Select, Historical Center, All Amenities

The features making our apartment a real winner amongst the top rentals in Bologna are many. First, its quality – Olympia is part of one of the most beautiful and elegant patrician palaces in this Italian capital of gourmet food, night life and fashion and was completely refurbished in 2011 with the exclusive use of top quality materials. Add the absolute quiet of a 1500’s inner courtyard all windows overlook, its design furniture and furnishing chosen with love and zest, its position in the very heart of Bologna’s historical center, the quiet and elegant Via Castiglione bordered with the best quality shops, stores, restaurants etc. and served by a very efficient public transportation system with all stops nearby. As a result, an extremely prestigious and comfortable apartment, by far the right choice for the traveller visiting Bologna for tourism, business, conventions, trade exhibits and more. All for a very competitive price when compared to properties in the same range.

Olympia (about 90 square meters in size, second floor with elevator) is a light and bright, charming, extremely clean and cozy apartment, class and atmosphere the key words. An elegant hallway and a patrician staircase both reminiscent of the great Renaissance Bologna, a gate and a sturdy safety door, a view over the dome of St. Domenico Cathedral and the red roofs of Bologna offer the guest total safety, ambiance and pure enjoyment. One of the oldest and most celebrated osterias in town is right around the corner for your night fun and gourmet pleasure. Parking is available at a nearby public, guarded lot.

As for its layout, Olympia is composed by a large, bright room with dining and living areas, the latter featuring a great Zironi couch and a select design, brand new sofa bed that can easily and comfortably accommodate two. A very large loft with a skylight window and own en-suite bathroom can accommodate two additional persons in a large double bed. Both the sofa bed and the double bed have very firm frames and mattresses. All linen (bathroom, kitchen, bed) are first quality and provided at no additional charge.

A very efficient kitchen with all tools provided separates the abovementioned spaces from a bathroom, which, not differently from the one upstairs, is being kept immaculate and thoroughly sanitized after each stay. The apartment features a washing machine, a dishwasher, a large flat screen tv set, top quality dishes, pottery, glassware and all the accessories one needs for a practical, comfortable stay. Olympia is air conditioned and heated by a very efficient timer-operated heat pump system. An internet wifi connection is provided at no extra charge.

We look forward to having you with us soon.

A quiet, well-appointed apartment in the centre of

  • 5 of 5

Bologna is a fascinating city to visit. It's predominantly a working city rather than a tourist destination so has good restaurants, food shops and markets as you'd expect in this area without the il-effects of over-exploitation by tourism which is destroying Florence. It's an ideal base for visiting northern Italian cities with excellent rail connections to Ravenna, Modena, Siena, Florence (if you must)..... but has lots of interest in its own right. The historic centre is well-preserved and the city has been at pains to maintain its architectural and historic integrity.

The Olympia Apartment lies within the historic centre in a porticoed street but because it faces an inner courtyard is quiet and peaceful. It's part of a venerable old building but is comfortable and well equipped with a very generous provision of the essentials. Owners Gianluca and Krystyna could not have been more welcoming or helpful. We're very grateful to them for sorting out any difficulties we had (we're not Italian speakers) and for ensuring that we had a very rewarding stay.

Unreservedly highly recommended

Excellent

We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was very quiet, clean and spacious. The bed and sofa bed were both comfortable. Close to train station, center and all major monuments, with a great ice cream parlour nearby. Would stay here again!

Perfect location, stylish and very quiet

  • 5 of 5

I recently returned from a trip to Bologna and stayed in the Olympia apartment for four weeks. The apartment is spacious, bright, comfortable and has a lot of charm. The kitchen is very well equipped. The dining room overlooks a quiet courtyard. I couldn't have been happier with the location. It is a very short walk to the main square (Piazza Maggiore), great restaurants (Cesarina, my favourite), museums and shops. Should I come back to Bologna, I would love to stay there again.

Great apartment in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the apartment for 1 week in April. The photos of the apartment were accurate, the apartment was very clean and had all the facilities we needed and everything worked. The apartment is in an ideal location for sight seeing on foot and it was very quite (little / no noise from the road or adjacent apartments). We used supermarkets, restaurants and the perhaps best gellateria (on the same street as the apartment) all of which were a few minutes walk away, We did not have and did not need a car. Happy to recommend the apartment.

Delightful Apartment - Beautiful City

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed this spacious and elegant apartment for a week in April, 2016. Its location puts all of Bologna's vibrant city center in easy walking distance, made even more enjoyable by the stately porticoes that line Via Castiglione and most other streets. Excellent food and wine, typical of this richly endowed region, are nearby in modestly priced trattorias, along with the best gelato (Cremeria Funivia), the best panini (Salumeria Simone), and the best pastry (Pasticceria Santo Stefano) that we found anywhere in Italy. Bologna offers a treasure trove of museums, galleries, and churches, along with wonderfully preserved Renaissance architecture throughout the city center, including the 15th century Palazzo Cospi where the apartment is located. For day trips, Ravenna and other cities of Emilia-Romagna are a short train ride away. And always, at the end of each day, the clean, quiet, and comfortable Olympia apartment was our great home base.

Olympia is located in the very heart of Bologna’s Historical Center, the quiet and elegant Via Castiglione bordered with the best quality shops, stores, restaurants etc. and served by a very efficient public transportation system with all stops nearby. Convenient to all spots in town included Piazza Maggiore (5 minutes walk), the University, the Train Station, the Fairground (direct bus) and more. No need for a car, walk or ride the bus!
