“Lovely apartment in perfect location”
Reviewed 5 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This beautifully decorated apartment is so well laid out so that even though it's compact, there was lots of room, with the bedroom separate, and a lovely eating and kitchen space, as well as a comfortable living room area. The location was great, right on one of the main streets in the centre of town, but the apartment itself was off the street and always very quiet. The owner, Samantha, was very nice and helpful at every stage, and has made an excellent binder with useful information about Bologna which we appreciated very much. We highly recommend this apartment and would definitely stay here again next time we're in Bologna.

“beautiful.BUT.”
Reviewed 20 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Just spent two weeks in the studio and it is beautiful and in an excellent location for sight-seeing around Bologna , but it is noisy . The studio is in part of an old building which has been converted to offices and several apartments , there is a constant noise from buzzers and doors/gates closing in the day and then at night the added bonus of the upstairs neighbour "training for a marathon" , it is rather like trying to sleep during a thunder storm , when the thunder isn't there its fine but all of a sudden , not one undisturbed night .
Had a slight problem on arrival as the door bell for the apartment wasn't working and we found ourselves waiting outside for a while (be sure you have telephone number) and also had a problem with one of the gate locks not opening . If your only in bologna for a week and you can sleep "during a storm" then its perfect .suitable for two adults only.

“Clean and convenient”
Reviewed 12 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Strada Maggiore 37 was very spacious for two and extremely clean. It was well appointed and there was fresh bread, tea, coffee and other basic cooking ingredients in the apartment.
It was a little dark during the day (although we were rarely there at that time) and there was a bright light shining into the bedroom area at night but this was outweighed by overall comfort and convenience.
The main issue for us was that there was no washing machine and the closest laundry was the other side of town-not an issue if you are only staying a few days. Also we were met by a very friendly and well-intentioned girl who could only speak a few words of English so we were unable to ask her any questions.
The road outside was being re paved while we were there and this impacted on transport- cars could not enter and C buses were re-routed. This situation will no doubt be resolved in the next couple of months.
Overall we were happy with our first experience of renting an apartment rather than staying in a hotel. It gave us greater flexibility and a real sense of home away from home. I would recommend this place to others.

“Excellent apartment”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 for a stay in April 2013

Firstly here is some local info and how to get there. The apartment is very close to the two towers and it is very easy to reach the main sites in the historical centre. There is an excellent supermarket (Scaramagli) just to the left of the building and a Coop right down Strada Maggiore to the right. But best of all across the road in Piazza Aldrovandi there are excellent small shops, including a butcher and a baker, and numerous vegetable, cheese and fish stalls. Fresh milk is available and all kinds of goodies are available close by. From the airport it is easy to get the shuttle bus to the train station and then a C bus (or if a Saturday, an A bus) to P.Aldrovani. A short walk back to S. Maggiore, cross the road and turn right and you are outside No. 37. It does not seem easy to find a Bologna bus map on line but Google Earth shows the area well. The apartment has been beautifully renovated and for one person or a couple it is ideal and very good value. It was warm and cosy but also if all the windows are opened a good flow of air can be achieved; this would be necessary in warmer weather than I experienced in early April. The bed is in a partitioned off area which is also open to the main room. I am not so sure about appropriate privacy for 2 couples travelling together but I found it excellent. There is a large fridge, a 4 burner gas hob and sufficient cutlery, plates etc for some self catering. The large sofa is very comfortable. WiFi is fast and reliable. Everything in the apartment is tasteful and of high quality. Now I know where it is and where there are language schools in Bologna I will be back. This apartment comes highly recommended.

“a great studio apartment”

This is a newly decorated, very clean and comfortable flat in a central, lovely location. I stayed there for one month and enjoyed the home away from home at Strada Maggiore.
