All the staff we dealt with were friendly and efficient and communication was excellent. The 2 bed apartment was in an attractive and convenient area and it was spacious and very clean. But, and it's a big but, it's a shame that the apartment we stayed in was very noisy at night. The walls and ceiling are so thin that...

Originally I booked an apartment across the road (via Marsala 8) but for some reason it fell through. Instead I was given a two bedroom apartment in Residenzia Ariosto. The apartment was huge, with excellent facilities including a huge bathroom, open plan kitchen/dining and air conditioning though-out. The location is superb with three gelati stores on the same street, as...

A very clean, spacious quiet and homely place. The arrangement for checking-in and checkin-out was very convenient. The person waited for us to deliver the key because we were late, but they were too friendly and never complained. It was also possible to leave our luggage with them after we checked-out. They also called a taxi for us. And location...

Residenza Ariosto is a wonderful 'home away from home' from which to enjoy the delights of Bologna. Our apartment there represented excellent value. It is extremely well located, well equipped, and very clean and comfortable. Though very close to the city sights the building is quiet and secure, and we always felt happy there. Checkin and checkout arrangements were friendly...

On a vacation to Italy with my husband we booked a 1 bedroom apt with Residenza Ariosta for the affordable price and central location. We were immediately impressed with the space! Extremely clean, AC that worked great in living room and bedroom, super quiet due to its location on a side street just off the main drag, and an accommodating...

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.
