“Central location”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

L'Arena apartment was easily accessed from the train station. The apartment was spacious and although the kitchen was rather small it contained everything we needed plus a few extra provisions provided by the owners. We particularly enjoyed the proximity to Piazza Maggiore and other Bologna attractions. Our only criticism was the noise from the buses as they travelled up via Independenza till late into the night. Ps. We managed to work the washing machine!

Management Response
26 Nov 2013
Thanks for your review. We are really sorry for the apartment not having been in the conditions you expected. As you may remember our caretaker (who has been providing excellent quality work for years now) was on a leave in August, so we had to use a replacement that, evidently, was not the top at dusting. As you can see from other reviews though "clean" is our keyword, so what occurred to you was really an exception. We can assure that the apartment is now being offered in spotless, impeccable conditions.

Beds have been replaced a couple of months ago and the new ones are top quality and extremely comfortable. We hope you'll come back soon so to experience all this and enjoy your stay again. All the best, Carla
