Bologna wonderful, this apartment not so!
We stayed for five nights in June, our fourth rental in Bologna during the past seven years. Unfortunately, it was the least desirable apartment we’ve had in Bologna. We travel by car for five to seven weeks, once or twice each year, and predominantly stay in small towns, But we like cities, too. Overall, we’ve rented dozens of apartments during the past ten years in France, Spain, and Italy, and in our experience, this would rank at the bottom of the list.
On the plus side, this ground floor apartment was roomy enough but had little cross ventilation because of heavy plastic sheets covering almost the entire window on the street side. The shower was a disaster - it was small, shower doors did not close properly, and it had no hand-held shower head. The apartment smelled of stale cigarette smoke, the tiny living room was dark with no windows, and the kitchen had a window facing what looked like a two meter square shaft between the buildings. Apparently the building was under repair, and as a result there was loud construction noise every day - banging, drilling, and sawing.
At the time of booking, Nicola was advised that we would be arriving by car and that we would like to book the secure parking he had offered for 20 euro per day. Twelve days before arrival, we again told him we wanted to book the garage. A few days before arrival, we arranged meet him at the apartment to unload our baggage. Not in the description of the apartment or in our communication did he mention that this apartment is located in a ZTL and we would need a temporary permit to drive to the apartment. (There are hefty fines for driving in a ZTL without a permit.) Even upon arrival, he failed to offer a temporary permit. In response to our request for a permit, he offered the advice not to bring a car into Bologna, but he told us that the garage attendant would issue one! (Cost for the garage was 25 euro per day, not 20 euro as Nicola claimed.) On the morning of our departure, he asked for, and we gave him, 10 more euros to get a temporary permit to drive in a ZTL to insure we would not get fined.
In ten years of staying in vacation rentals, many located in a ZTL, this is the first time the owner/manager failed to register our vehicle for use in a ZTL. This was also the first time, oddly, an owner/manager failed to collect the City Tourist Tax (4 euro per day per person in Bologna for this apartment) and had to be reminded to take our passport information.
Dear James, I am sorry about your review tha'sis no true anad I will expalin why: first of all I lost 2 hours of my work time to help you showing where the garage was located and I showed you aroun the area about restaurant and more. I told you that being the apartament in downtown is not easy come by car so if yu had problems is because you had a lot of baggage and maybe you shoud learn to travel smarter....
The aparament is always clena and in a very good position and you can see from the very good review of others guests.
So before create a damage to the person that tried to help you during your vacation you should pay more attention to the suggestion I said to yu before.
All the best.
This is a great home! It's in a perfect, quiet location yet just half a block away from great restaurants and shopping. It's an enjoyable 10 minute walk to the city center. And our host, Mario, was just amazing! So kind and helpful! I would definitely stay here again.
Checked all the boxes
We were very glad to have chosen this place, it had everything to were hoping for. Very nice location to establish our base in Bologna, and Nik was a great host. We hope it will be available when we go back to Bologna!
The perfect base in Bologna
Nice, practical, clean and central. Furthermore, Nicola is a great host - and very helpful. It's a gentle walk to the centre of this fabulous city. And there's a restaurant about 100 metres away which is (and is recognised as) quite exceptional. Highly recommended..
