My husband and I had never been to Bologna and we loved the home we rented

  • 5 of 5

I am an interior designer and am fussy about my environment, The apartment is lovely, spotlessly clean, great location. Our hosts think of everything for your comfort and convenience. Our only regret was we did not meet Marta as she was away but Robert is kind, gracious and helpful.

We highly recommend this property and were thrilled we were able to stay there. Roger & Babette Rutherford

Owner's Response: We greatly appreciated your comment: the opinion of an interior designer is certainly highly qualified and we are proud of it. I'm sorry I have not been here, unfortunately because of my personal commitments. Hope to meet you on your next vacation in Bologna! Marta (and Roberto)

I stay in Bologna every year, usually for a month. This is the first property that has everything, and I hope to return next year. The location is perfect. It is easy walking distance to anywhere in the city center. Although the street is busy, once you enter the building it is so peaceful.

The apartment has a lot of natural light and is very spacious. The furniture is also comfortable. I have stayed in so many places were the shower is small and the couch is not usable. That is not the case here. It is nice to be able to stretch out somewhere besides the bed. And the shower is big. The owners, Marta and Roberto, have provided a number of extension cords, outlets, and chargers that just make everything easier.

The apartment has a wonderful, big kitchen, fully stocked with anything you could need. As the pictures show, there is a little balcony that opens to the back of the building. I enjoyed opening the doors and letting in the air and light. And there is plenty of room to dry clothes. The clothes washer is a quality machine and easy to use.

The entire apartment is spotless. The heat and air conditioning work well, as oddly enough, I needed both. The owners live next door, which for me is a bonus because they are so kind and helpful with everything from navigating the recycling to giving directions.

They were kind enough to purchase a number of grocery items for me so I wouldn't have to go shopping immediately upon arrival. Marta and Roberto are so professional and organized. They provide copies of all receipts and have everything prepared for your arrival. I highly recommend this apartment and these owners.

Very attractive and comfortable flat close to all sights and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the property and the owners. The flat contained everything we needed and was very pleasant to come back to at the end of a busy day sightseeing.

Marta and Roberto have gone out of their way to make the property as welcoming as possible. It is bright, airy and well furnished, with lots of interesting books.

The flat is a 5 to 10 minute walk from the historic centre, where there are loads of restaurants, food shops and other interesting shops. There are also plenty of restaurants and shops literally on the doorstep.

Marta and Roberto gave us a bottle of Prosecco on our arrival, which was very kind and thoughtful.

I would highly recommend this flat to anyone considering a trip to Bologna.

An excellent apartment in a very convenient location

  • 5 of 5

La casa di Marta is a spacious apartment , well furnished and equipped. Supermarkets, shops and bars are in easy reach. There are some good restaurants in the neighbourhood, though the apartment is also an attractive place for one's evening meal. Marta and Roberto are excellent neighbours, always willing to help when needed, never obtrusive and a mine of information about Bologna. The centro storico and the train station are both easily accessible on foot (about 10 minutes in each case) or by bus.Bologna is a hub of the Italian railway system, and day trips to Ravenna,Ferrara, Modena and Florence are feasible and by English standards very cheap. My wife and I have many years' experience of various modes of travel in Italy. Our two weeks (13 to 27 May) in Marta and Roberto's apartment were one of the most enjoyable of all our holiday experiences in that marvellous country. Jo and Liz , London

The photos make it look good but really don't do it justice

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place. The reviews all say how lovely Marta and Roberto are and they really are! They are in the apartment next door but are not remotely intrusive. We are quite independent people and don't liked to be "helped" too much. This couple have got it just right. They are there if you need anything but never intrude.

The apartment is central enough to walk everywhere you need, but quiet and relaxing when you need to escape. It's so well equipped you don't need to worry about anything and its furnished to a very high standard, more like a home than a faceless holiday let. The bedroom has a king size bed and not a standard double as in the description.

Everybody we met coming in and out of the building was friendly and said hello which was nice. I'd really rather nobody else went to be honest and then it would always be free for me! :) no, it's great, book it, you won't be sorry.

We had a very enjoyable week staying at La Casa di Marta and a big thank you to Marta and Roberto.

1. Communications- The communications from Marta pre, during and post booking were excellent. The information provided covered every detail you can think of. The speed of response was simply the best. Full marks!

2. Apartment- The apartment was well-furnished and very well-equipped. We did not do any cooking but were delighted to discover how to use the Moka coffee maker. We have brought one back.

It was spacious, airey and very comfortable- a joy to come back to after a tiring day out. It was an added bonus to discover that Sky Sports was available on the TV.

The location itself was fantastic. All the major sights were within easy walking distances as were the numerous restaurants and local supermarkets. The railway station was a 10 mins walk away and day trips out of Bologna were easy to arrange. We went to Modena and the Ferrari museum was great.

3. The hosts. Marta and Roberto are a very warm, charming and hospitable couple. Roberto was very helpful in so many ways, providing information and recommendations, telephoning restaurants and taxis on our behalf- nothing was too much. On the day of my birthday, much to my surprise, Marta and Roberto knocked on the door and presented me with a cake. They had already left us a bottle of wine earlier in the week for my birthday-totally unexpected but what a lovely gesture.

4. Summary. Without doubt, this has been an excellent holiday. Marta and Roberto have made a lot of effort to ensure that we were well looked after. We have travelled widely and this is certainly one of the best places we have stayed in.

The hospitality has been awesome and I would highly recommend staying here.

Thanks for looking after us, Marta and Roberto, and hopefully we can return one day.

Finally one word to sum this all up --- Perfecto!

Via Marconi is a way 'historical' and the prestigious Bologna: completely rebuilt in the '60s, with modern buildings and square (and a couple of' skyscrapers' for the time).

It is in a very strategic location to live and visit Bologna for tourists: it is located halfway between the main station (about 700 meters) and the central square with the famous Two Towers (900 meters).

It traveled by public transportation, allowing you to reach all major points of interest in town. The bus stop is right outside the door of the building.

It is the way perhaps the richest of all Bologna's services, shops, restaurants, bars, pizzerias, cinemas, pubs, museums, banks, post offices, supermarkets, grocery stores, pharmacies, and everything necessary during a stay, long or short ... whatever you need you can be sure they can find it in via Marconi or in the adjacent streets.

In addition, however, a few minutes walk and you reach the center 'historic', with all that entails in terms of attractions and more opportunities.

A short walk from Casa Marta fact is the prestigious Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Bologna, MAMbo, with works by Morandi, Guttuso and De Pisis; the same distance you can advance in a mysterious journey in the culverts of the city, with the Association of Vitruvius.

Bologna preserves the medieval Old Town Europe's largest and reachable with a pleasant 10-minute walk, under the arches.

Porches that accompany the visitor for nearly 40 km in the city, up the hill of the Guard, which is the Sanctuary of San Luca.

A destination for pilgrims, as the ark of Nicola Pisano which houses the remains of St. Dominic in the basilica, not far from Piazza Maggiore, renamed Piazza Grande by singer-songwriter Lucio Dalla.

His notes are still ringing at sunset in the way of walking, the aristocratic way Azeglio.

Not far away, in the square of Neptune, the lord of the sea and water serenely watching the world go by how they look up to the Asinelli, the symbol of the "Learned", along with San Petronio, which houses the sundial gods Gian Domenico Cassini, the longest in the world.

A few steps Archiginnasio; today Municipal Library, once the seat of the oldest university in the world, for the study of Law and Medicine, as evidenced by the thousands of coats of arms left by students in the beautiful quadriloggiato, visited along with the anatomical study, a jewel inlaid wood pine.

Bologna is also the "Fat" and remember him in the quadrangle, next to the square, the medieval shops rich menus for the pleasure of taste and sight.

Zigzagging between hams and mortadella is a must stop by Tamburini, to taste tortellini and tagliatelle, before taking the step to be moved by the Lamentation of Nicholas Ark, Santa Maria della Vita and to the nearby Piazza Santo Stefano with its seven churches.

Here Bologna the "Red", with its brick and its draperies.

It is the most beautiful corner of the city.
