We were lucky enough to return to Bologna and stay at the Atelier for the
second time in three years. This place is very special just
like the hosts, Maria Cristina and Gastone. You will not find two kinder
people in all of Italy. Many thanks to them both. You can read our review of all the
apartments’ amenities, which are many, in our 2015 Trip Advisor review. All we need to add to our previous review is this bit of advice... When planning your trip
you should stay here AT LEAST five nights. Bologna has so much to
discover (and eat!), plus everything in this apartment has so much
character and charm, once you arrive here, you won’t want to leave! We can hardly wait to return for our next visit. Ci manchi Bologna!
Excellent location, very quiet and easy to walk to the centre of the city. The facilities were as described, everything was clean and in working order. The bed was very comfortable, plenty of towels, the central heating worked very well and hot water was in constant supply. The outside space is a welcome addition to the facilities. Correspondence with Maria Cristina was simple and straightforward. We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to other travellers.
We had a wonderful week at this delightful apartment in central Bologna. it was quiet, clean, very well situated for all the historic sites and had everything we needed. We were only 10 minutes walk from the central square and Bologna was a truly wonderful city to explore. A well stocked small supermarket was a minute away and open every day . There are several flights of stairs to reach the roof top apartment but this ensured an atmospheric and glorious view to the south of the city.
Our hosts Maria Christina and her husband were reliable, kind and welcoming. We were so pleased and we hope to return again soon!
Couldn't be better!
The apartment was beautiful with beautiful rooftop terrace. Location was great, easy walk to everywhere, lovely little flower and food market over the road, great restaurants everywhere, close to main market with great food.
Our hosts were so friendly and helpful.
I hope we can come back one day and stay here again. 3 nights was way too short.
We are very fortunate to have just spent a week in Bologna for the first time and hit the jackpot by renting this apartment. Firstly the location cannot be any better being just a few minutes walk from anywhere you may want to see, excepting the Sanctuary of San Luca which is about 4kms away but you can see it from the fabulous roof terrace of the apartment! The views from the terrace are wonderful and it is a very nice place to idle away an hour or two. You may have to climb up quite a few stairs to get to this apartment but is is definitely worth it for the views from the roof. The apartment is very well equipped and beautifully decorated and has an extremely comfortable bed. The owners, Maria Christina and Gastone are so very friendly and helpful without being intrusive in any way. They will help you if you want it and just want to be sure you are comfortable and enjoying your stay. They left us a very welcome bottle of local wine in the fridge. The rooms are light and airy and there is very efficient air conditioning if it is required. Bologna is a great city to visit, easy to negotiate with amazing food, wine and people. Loved our stay.
