This is the B&B of your dreams, a lovely set of rooms central to everything in Bologna, presided over by a charming and knowledgeable hostess who loves to incorporate things she has baked into the beautifully presented breakfasts.

We were fortunate to stay at Bologna nel Cuore in September. The B&B is very close to the old town centre. Our bed and bathroom was spotlessly clean and very tastefully furnished. Wonderful breakfasts with local produce. Maria is an accomplished hostess and cheerfully assists with her extensive local knowledge and recommendations. Bologna nel Curoe definitely deserves a 5 star... More

My wife and I stayed in the Topazio (ground floor) apartment for 7 nights to celebrate my 60th birthday!

My husband and I went to Bologna for our wedding anniversary, and we had a lovely stay at the Bologna nel Cuore. Maria made us feel so welcome and the accommodation was perfect - great central location, plus the breakfasts with fresh cake and home-made jams were delicious. We can't wait to return next year!

The website is no exaggeration - Bologna nel Curore is a great B&B. Nicely appointed and close to both the city center and a bus stop to the train station.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
My name is Mary Ketty and I personally manage my Bed & Breakfast "Bologna nel Cuore," guaranteeing my guests special care for detail and a warm, welcoming atmosphere with the maximum respect for privacy."Bologna nel cuore" is an intimate and refined Bed & Breakfast situated in an old structure in the centre of Bologna born thanks to the love I feel towards my city. My wish is to leave my guests, Italian or foreign, with a memory of Bologna in their hearts and "Bologna nel cuore" Bed & Breakfast is ideal as an unforgettable stay for those who love the proverbial cordiality of Emilian hospitality. This elegant and welcoming residence is also the perfect solution for those who come to Bologna for business, conventions or other work related matters or for local Bolognesi who wish to host relatives or friends in a homely environment. The central position, just a few steps from the main square Piazza Maggiore, of the Bed & Breakfast "Bologna nel cuore," allows the guests to easily reach on foot the main monuments of the city, including the famous Two Towers. I will be glad to suggest itineraries which will help you discover the major historical and artistic sites, the best restaurants and the most characteristic shops where typical, traditional products of the famous Bolognese gastronomy can be bought. ... more   less
