“A wonderful time in Bologna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

We  stayed in Bologna nel cuore B&B for five days and that was just GREAT. Amazing location - everything you'll want to see visiting Bologna is near. Maria is a wonderful host who immediately made us feel very much at home. The rooms where nice and clean and tastefully decorated. Great service - the breakfasts was very good, and Maria gave us very useful  advices about great resturants and what to see in the city. We had a really wonderful time in Bologna and are allready looking forward to come back to the beautiful and frendly city and to Bologna nel cuore B&B

This is a long overdue review which I promised Maria.
We were a couple from Singapore with a one year boy together with us.
Maria was a wondering host who made us feel very welcome. She prepared a list of recommended restaurants for us to visit during our stay and was helpful in addressing my train queries before my trip too.
Rooms were very clean and had absolute privacy so no worries about our boy disturbing other travellers. Very comfortable and large room with a big wardrobe and well equipped bathroom.
Breakfast was sumptuous with a wide selection of hams, cheese, bread, yoghurt, juice, coffee etc.
Location was great, very near the city center.

B & B Bologna nel Cuore was wonderful. In an amazing location, walking distance to everything, clean beautiful rooms in a lovely Italian apartment. Maria was the perfect host and so welcoming. My boyfriend and i are do not speak very good Italian (if any) but Maria speaking fluent English gave us personal tips and advice on the city, something you wouldn't get from a guide book. Maria and her husband have impeccable taste, her apartment is so beautiful, but we were never made to feel like we couldn't make ourselves at home. The breakfast in the morning was divine, the best blood orange juice we have ever tasted (We had a trip very early Saturday morning and Maria without any problems got up to make sure we had a full stomach).I couldn't recommended B & B Bologna nel Cuore highly enough. If you visit bologna it would be the best place to stay with out a doubt.

We thought we would stay somewhere a little different and B & B Bologna nel cuore exceeded all our expectations. Maria who is the owner of this stylish appartment is a charming hostess. She gave us the feeling that we were her house guests but without being in any way intrusive.There are just two rooms for guests although she also has a couple of other appartments in this lovely old building that she also lets. Our room was tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean and had one of the best bathrooms we have had for some time. We enjoyed our lovely breakfast in Maria's impressive drawing room to the sounds of Pavorotti in the backgound - absolutely perfect!.The location is ideal being within easy walking distance of a number of fantastic restaurants. I had in fact done some homework on where to eat but could have saved myself a job as Maria has all the good ones listed. The only one she hadn't included was Trattoria dal Biassanot which we absolutely loved and only 5 minutes walk away. Maria also pointed us in the direction of Mino was has a stall at the local food market for parmesan etc. Getting there could not be easier get the Aerobus which stops just outside departures and goes every few minutes (6 Euros) and get off at Via Ugo Bassi walk in direction of bus and take first right and you are in via Cesare Battisti and no 29 is about two hundred yards on left.This B & B is the sort of place we all hope to find when travelling abroad and offers so many subtle delights not found in a comparable hotel and we certainly look forward to another visit in the near future.

Would strongly recommend Maria's B&B. Room was clean, spacious and warm! Breakfast every morning was delicous. The B&B is also in an ideal location, all main attractions within walking distance and lots of boutiques/restaurants around. Maria herself was very welcoming and her recommendations came in very handy and were spot on.
Will come back again.

We were very fortunate because Maria put us in an apartment all by ourselves due to her B&B being fully occupied. Though the unit is a bit small, Maria was able to create space and made the unit looked big, new and well decorated. The scent from the reed diffuser welcomed us immediately. On arrival, Maria spent more than an hour chatting up and explained the various attractions.

Further down about 10 minutes away is the main square. Go to any restaurant in Bologna and you will be satisfied with the food. I had the best tortellini in my life here, in Bologna. They are such culinary experts.

On the last day, we were invited to the main B&B. And what? The apartment was decorated even better. Wish we can come back to Bologna and stay at B&B Bologna nel Cuore again. More so with the beautiful Maria.
