Who would guess that behind an imposing door off a quiet but oh so centrally located street such a gem of a place would await us - two couples on our first short visit to Bologna. From a first friendly hello Maria Ketty welcomed us into her spotless and beautifully appointed B&B with every tiny detail so thoughtfully considered and...

It's completely ridiculous to refer to Bologna nel Cuore ("Bologna in the heart") as a B&B: it's the boutique-est of boutique hotels with a level of service no hotel can match. It's right in the centre of Bologna, five minute's walk from the Piazza Maggiore in a quiet back-street that makes for very comfortable sleeping and that's completely convenient for...

Maria provides you a warm welcome at a perfect place for a city trip. Nice room, splendid bathroom, perfect breakfast and 300 meters from the piazza maggiore. Recommended!!!!! Bologna is a nice authentic and cosy city with beatiful buildings, piazzas, wine and food.

We stayed in the Rubino apartment. For us it was perfect, convenient for calling back during the day and so much better than staying in a hotel. Maria was very helpful both while we were there and prior to our visit. She very kindly booked us a table for the often difficult Sunday night and we made use of her...

This is a small 2 room B+B in a good location @ a 10 min walk to Piazza Maggiore (tourist central). There is an elevator, so you will only need to deal with a few steps from the street. Our room was clean and comfortable. It faced onto a rear street so there was little street noise. Excellent breakfast including...

We stayed in the Rubino apartment. It was clean, spacious and perfectly situated. The apartment had the feeling of “home” rather than of being in a hotel. Maria was a fantastic host.

Went rented the Rubino Apartment. It was great. Cozy, with wonderful amenities, small but fully equip kitchen in which we made full meals several days. Bed is comfortable.

I would highly recommend staying...

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
