What a fabulous surprise! Residenza Ariosto was prefect for our weekend in Bologna - excellent value, fantastically positioned, absolutely spotless, light, comfortable and unexpectedly spacious, with a generous-sized bathroom and bedroom. The bed is large and comfortable, cupboard space is ample and the kitchen is really well-equipped. And the staff! Wow! They were truly impressive; warm, welcoming and amazingly helpful.

This apartment is wonderful. Beautifully spacious, airy, well equipped and spotlessly clean. It is also in a very central location on a lovely street. We enjoyed our couple of days here and the apartment enhanced our visit to Bologna immensely. The staff were friendly and helpful. Andrea met us at the agreed time, and helped with our cases. He talked... More

This apartment was perfect for our 2 night stay in Bologna. The staff met us at the apartment for checkin! They were SO friendly, professional and informative, sharing with us the places they eat at and fun things to do/see! Communication prior to checkin was timely and informative. Having a rental car, we first thought we'd drive into the old... More

Clean, well equipped basic apartment. It's in a great location five minutes stroll from Piazza Maggiore. Everything you need is here, it's not been styled it's more functional. Having previously stayed in hotels in Bologna I really enjoyed the accessibility and flexibility of this apartment. It was great value and Salvo was very helpful.

We stayed two nights and loved the appartment set in a historic old building so you looked like a local. The amenities were really good especially happy that it had a washing machine as we had been travelling for a few weeks. Will return and recommend to friends.

Our one-bedroom apartment was modern, clean and had everything we needed for a two day stay. The Piazza Maggiore is 5 minutes away and there are excellent restaurants, shops and sights all around the apartment. The airport bus stop and railway station are both easy walking distance.

The room is very long and the WC/bathroom is one end and the bedroom the other. I found the wi fi poor. Very slow. There was no sense of design with the furniture looking like something thrown together. It was dark and with people in the place upstairs very noisy. BUT. It was a great place for one night. The...

Stayed there in one room apartment for two nights in May 2016. Lovely and spacious apartment. Wish could have stayed more. Apartments are on the second floor. Rooms are big with all facilities. However could do with a mirror in the room

As per the title a great location and very friendly owner who gave us some great local restaurant tips. Only downside was the noise from the noise from pipes in our room (presumably waste from upstairs) and the noisy courtyard. It wouldn't put us off going back but might if you were a light sleeper. Fantastic deli/wine shop 100 yds... More
