Away from central yet seedy, messy areas such as the train and bus station and the University department, lively and very colorful, animated, this is the best section of the vibrant Historical Center of Bologna. The classiest stores, restaurants, cafes, the best shopping and the most amusing strolling are all here, under the old arches of Via Indipendenza, the very heart of the Italian capital of youth, nightlife and gourmet cuisine – Bologna. Hence, the easiness of getting around without any need for a car. The airport shuttle bus takes you almost at the door, about 10 different bus lines to all the interest points in town are available at the door, the railroad station is at walking distance and so is Piazza Maggiore, the center of gravity of this stunning Medieval and Renaissance urban beauty. L’Arena is part of one of the most elegant buildings bordering Via Indipendenza. A second floor (elevator) with a view over the avenue, extremely clean and well kept, it comfortably accommodates up to 9 guests in 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 large living-diningroom, a kitchen with all the tools provided, a hallway and a small terrace. Bedding is as follows: - Room #1: one queen-size bed and one single; - Room #2: two singles that can be put together to form a queen-size plus one single sofabed; - Room #3: two single sofabeds; - Room #4: one single bed Furnished with choice antique furniture and craft (1800’s and 1900’s), decorated with love and zest with the all major appliances provided and in perfect working order, completely air conditioned and with high-speed wifi internet connection, L’Arena stands out for its class, traditional Bolognese style and comfort. It would be hard for you to find a more central and comfortable accommodation, a better spot to fully enjoy the life and the fun of this amazing city. Other pluses: a large parking lot (garage – guarded) only about 50 mts., plenty of all kind of restaurants, pubs and pizzerias in the immediate vicinity (the most renowned restaurant in town is right across the street), Friday and Saturday open-air market in the nearby piazza, (huge, lot of fun!), theatres and movie theatres, monuments, museums, etc. right there for you to enjoy. Comfort, convenience, class, fun and great relax: these are the key words for L’Arena, a superb place, your nr. 1 home away from home.More

Check-in: the location was easy to find. Dragging suitcases from the train station is eased by the smooth sidewalks that are covered and shaded and by the very pedestrian friendly culture. The lovely hosts met us there and took time to explain how things worked....More
