After the chaos of Roma, this was a fabulous city to visit and b&b...

Superb location in the centre of Bologna, superclean rooms, a superb breakfast, and a superkind hostess. Highly recommended. Ask the hostess for tips about local restaurants. You won't be disappointed.

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
