“Bella Bologna”

This was the very first visit to Bologna, and we were so enchanted with the city...its food, its porticos, and people that we walked every inch we could. We particularly enjoyed the central location of Palazzo Pannolini which made it possible for us to take a break and then return to activities. Giancarlo was the perfect host in orienting us to the sights and restaurants of Bologna and arranging a taxi for us. The apartment was very clean and had a marvelously efficient use of space. We loved the fact that the apartment was once a portico. We loved Giancarlo's suggestion of visiting the Basiica San Luca. Some of the very best pictures of our 26 day stay in Italy were taken there. I highly recommend this as a wonderful vacation stay.

“Small but with a perfect location”

My husband and I decided to stay in Bologna because we wanted to be somewhere "less touristy." We were there over a week and we loved it! By the time we left it really felt like home.

Gian Carlo, the owner of the apartment, met us at the Bologna airport where we had gone to return our rental car and drove us, with our luggage, to the pocket-sized apartment we stayed in. He was very willing to cart our large suitcase up the spiral staircase you see in listing photos, but we decided to take things up a little at a time. It's a disadvantage for anyone that has to get up at night that the bedroom is separated from the bathroom by that rather daunting staircase. Also, the amenities were quite spartan. However, the WiFi worked perfectly and the location was also absolutely perfect for exploring Bologna's historic center.

“Charming Apartment”

We recently stayed 4 nights at this centrally located portico apartment on Via Zamboni. The apartment has all amenities, including a washing machine. The apartment is clean, bright, quiet and updated.
Bologna, however, is a foodie paradise so eating in was not a consideration. We ate at the following restaurants: Oberdon, La Montanara, daNello al Montegrappa, Incrcio Montagrappa, Pasta Fresca Naldi.

Giancarlo is an excellent host. He responded quickly to all our requests, offered suggestion about the city and met us as planned at the apartment to welcome us. He also went out of his way to make dinner reservations for us as well as arranging for an early morning taxi to the airport.

When we return to Bologna we will certainly stay with Giancarlo again at this or one of his other apartments.

“Excellent location from which to explore Bologna.”

The apartment was clean, compact and comfortable in a beautiful palazzo. It was well equipped and close to the heart of Bologna in a lively area.
Giancarlo responded to our inquiries promptly and gave us useful advice about finding the apartment.
We would not advise driving to the apartment as it is difficult to get to and there is no parking at the apartment. A car is not needed in Bologna and can be a hassle. The best way to get to the apartment is by bus or on foot from the station.
Gastronomic tip: aperitifs and buffet for 7-8 euro nearby.
