I spent a great month and a half in the apartment and would happily return; it is spacious, with a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable furniture, including the bed. There is excellent natural light throughout and easy access to the large terrace which has a fine rooftop view. Neighborhood amenities are convenient—food, bookstore, botanical garden, osteria just next door, macelleria a few blocks away, cinema, opera, concerts. Fabio is an fine and available host. Other highlights include easy walks to the center and train station and discovering the neighborhood.

The edit function for this review does not work, so this is repetitious . highlights are discovering the neighborhood

We have been in Fabio's apartment for four months, and it has been a fantastic stay. It is a bright, quiet and very comfortable apartment (what a wonderful terrace!), the University is very close, the train station also, and there are shops, bars and restaurants steps away. Fabio is an excellent landlord and Bologna is a fantastic city. What more could you want? Excellent ESTHER 11/11/2018 1:38:00 AM
This is a very comfortable apartment. Great location between university side of town and train station. Very quiet. Wonderful patio and stunning views. Comfortable bed. Good kitchen. And, fantastic desk and chair. Fabio is caring and attentive. I would highly recommend it. I will be back. Excellent Tom Roscommon 11/4/2018 1:05:00 AM
We stayed at Fabio’s apartment for a year, in 2016/2017.

We found the flat to be ideally situated in the northern section of the historic downtown, on a quiet street, steps from everything: two large parks, shops, weekend marketplace, popular local restaurants, supermarkets and the train station. Bologna’s best Asian specialty food store is down the block, as are numerous café’s, Pasticcerias, and a delicious vegetarian restaurant next door. It is ten-minute walk through pleasant old lanes to the Due Torri and Piazza Maggiore.

Everything in the apartment is new, clean, extremely comfortable, and in prefect working order. There is plentiful natural light and the top floor location keeps the street noise to a minimum. The huge terrace, with a retractable canopy, is a lovely place to hang out. A vista over roofs and the greenery is a rare feature in Bologna.

We appreciated more and more our relationship with Fabio, who is was a reliable, friendly and accommodating host. We are a couple with a three-year-old daughter and the house suited our needs perfectly. If we come back to Bologna, we want to live here again.

This 6th floor apartment (with lift) was perfect for my month in Bologna. It's very spacious, light and airy, and the air conditioners (3) were a blessing during a very hot August. All the amenities one could want were provided including an iron and ironing board (often lacking in other apartments). The apartment was spotless and well maintained, the wifi worked well and it was less than a 15 minute walk to the centre/ Piazza Maggiore/ train station. Supermarkets are less than 5 minutes away. Fabio was very accommodating when I had to change my dates - not once, but a few times. Thanks Fabio - I'll be back! Excellent Jillian 9/25/2015 10:20:00 PM
