We really enjoyed staying at the apartment. It was clean and well equipped. We chose the position to be near our daughter's apartment and enjoyed being in a lively part of town, although it was rather noisy at night. We did not pick up the keys personally and it would have been useful to have had some instructions in the apartment about practical matters (where to dispose of rubbish etc) but had we picked up the keys ourselves, we may have asked questions our daughter did not think to. Emails sent during our stay were answered quickly and helpfully and we had a great time in Bologna. We would recommend to a friend.
We opted for an apartment over a hotel due to the high prices for average hotels in the city centre and we werent dissappointed. The apartment was enormous with large bedrooms and spacious lounge. The location is right in the middle of the university quarter with easy access to the great bars and restaurants. My only slight reservations would be that 1) the road is quite noisy at weekends due the the bars and clubs but we simply moved to the bedroom at the rear of the house where it was much quieter. 2) They have wifi but it is very patchy and you have to log in again every time you use it. All in all though, its a great place to stay to explore a fantastic city and we were really pleased with it.
