I could have stayed here for months! The apartment stay is so comfortable with every small detail so meticulously thought out. All the comforts of home and more, however what truly makes this apartment, located in an excellent location, is Maria, the host. She is kind, genuine, provides excellent restaurant recommendations, and makes you feel at home.

I am happy to endorse the many glowing reports of this elegant B & B, It is perfectly situated away from the hustle and bustle of the main square but just a short stroll away. It is a sanctuary of coolness on a hot day and a very lovely, scrupulously clean and well organised place of calm at any time....

Great location, very comfortable and clean accommodation but the highlight was Maria Ketty the host. She booked 2 fabulous dinners for us and gave excellent suggestions for our touring around Bologna. Everything was on foot - apart from a short taxi ride from the train station. After the chaos of Roma, this was a fabulous city to visit and b&b...

I enjoyed my stay at the beautifully furnished B&B in the heart of Bologna, and just a 5-10 min walk to Piazza Maggiore. Maria, the lovely proprietor, makes you breakfast in the morning, as well as a lovely selection of cakes, fruits, muesli, and freshly made juices. Truly a trip to remember.

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
