Maria Ketty manages her lovely B & B in close proximity to the city center in Bologna. We stayed in her home, in a large and nicely appointed room with a stunning bathroom. This room is obviously the master suite in this home in a multi-unit, charming, old building. She also has two apartments in the same building, each with...

Dear Danielle and Leonard, what a nice surprise to read your lovely review! I appreciate so much that you put your review even if you stayed at Bologna nel Cuore just for one night.

Maria Ketty truly represents the heart of Bologna, generously drawing you into the appeal of the city and the warmth of her residence. This was my third stay in four years, and I now consider several nights in Bologna an essential part of a trip to Italy thanks to Maria and her hospitality. Once again she suggested fabulous restaurants and...

The two of us stayed in Maria's Topazio apartment for three nights in May, and were blown away by the size, cleanliness, styling and attention to detail of the place. It's absolutely first class, and at a reasonable price. The apartment is on the ground level of a small residential apartment building (the B&B rooms are upstairs, in another apartment),...

It was a delight to return to Bologna nel Cuore in May, to collect our son's belongings from University. Maria Ketty provides outstanding accommodation, whether actually taking B&B in her apartment or, as we did, renting one of the ingeniously appointed self-catering apartments. The apartment was immaculately clean, well stocked with everything you could need, comfortable and peaceful, yet minutes...

This was my second time in Bologna, and the only thing I would change is that I would go back in time and stay with Maria the first time. Her attention to detail really puts this place above the rest. The room was spacious, charming, and clean; not a spot anywhere. The shower was luxurious, and although we didn't use...

Maria's B & B is bright, clean and comfortable. There is no view but the location is within easy walking distance of the famous old Bologna historic sights. Love the decor and delicious breakfast.

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
