Located right in the center of Bologna, just steps from piazza maggiore, the train station and surrounded by plenty of day and night life including restaurants, bars, cafes and shopping you're sure to discover what this beautiful city has to offer!

The space

We offer a big private room (12 sqm), separated from the other two rooms in this spacious, open house that sometimes transforms into an art space. Photography, visual arts, theatre and music are all part of the events the space occasionally hosts. We love having guests during our events but we leave it totally up to you!

The house is fully furnished with two bathrooms (one with a shower and the other a whirlpool bathtub), spacious kitchen with snack area, huge living room and a small peaceful terrace where you can relax day or night over the skyline of the city.
Tons of windows and hardwood floors throughout the house add to the hospitality.

In the center of Bologna you can find so much to do: museums, shops, restaurants and bars where you can taste authentic Italian food and wine and experience the culture. Not to mention all of the events and festivals happening in the city all year round!

The location of the house allows easy access to all parts of the city and the residents can help with any questions, issues or needs.

Guest access

Guests have access to use of the entire house, kitchen, fridge, terrace... Make your self at home!
There's also coffee and teas in the morning. We can give you an authentic lesson in the mysteries of making the perfect caffettiera coffee and or french press!

Interaction with guests

We're here to welcome you and for anything you might need. We often have different schedules so there's usually someone around to chat with, have coffee, water or wine or even a bite to eat! But there's always plenty of space to relax on your own in the house or have some privacy in your room.

Other things to note

Bologna isn't the most well-known city for travelers in Italy but not only does that make it great for getting around without swaths of tourists, it has one of the richest cultural traditions. Just check out the wikipedia page to just how much historical and contemporary activity there is here, especially the Entertainment and Performing Arts section!

It houses the oldest university in Europe still in full function and making it a very lively, young city where you can find university students out ad about in that part of town. It's a UNESCO city of music (there's still a lot and every genre), home of Morandi, weekly open markets, one of the biggest cinematographic cities in Italy.

In the summer there is a mega screen in piazza maggiore with free movies every night, often in English or subtitled. Also check out local concerts in town or the theatre schedules: Arena del Sole, Teatro Duse, Teatro Comunale, beautiful performances with many touring shows in English or without much need.

Mariarosa was a friendly and helpful host. Her cold tea with basil was very refreshing on arrival as it was a very hot day. The apartment is nicely quirky and hip in its decoration and very comfortable. It is bang in the centre of town. This was my second stay and I would definitely stay again, if I can, next time I am in Bologna.

Mariarosa was there to let me in at the time I had wanted to arrive. It took me a few minutes to work out which of the second sets of stairs I needed to take (staircase A) and Mariarosa kindly came to help me with my luggage. She showed me around everything I needed to know. The apartment was just what I needed for my stay. Roomy, cool and clean. I only saw Mariarosa on arrival and departure. That was just fine by me as I was out and about in Bologna most of the time. If you want to be central it is just perfect as the apartment is directly on one of the main shopping streets. Of course it means that it is noisy until late at night but that is true of anywhere central in Bologna.

A great host! Made me feel at home as soon as I walked in, even when it was past 1:00am! (Flight delayed). The apartment is in the heart of the city and only 10mins walk from the station. I love the city and would definitely consider staying here again and would recommend it to anyone.

The apartment was an easy 10 minute walk to the station and located on a busy and central street so great for reaching the centre. Lots of shops and bars right outside (although this can be quite noisy in the evening). Mariarosa was very friendly and recommended some nice places to visit. It is on the top floor with a nice outside space, although quite difficult with a lot of luggage as there is no lift.

Very central and convenient location, just a short walk from the station with shops, sites and cafes very near. The bedroom is lovely, very spacious and clean. The bed was comfy! The host was friendly and I had a nice chat on the terrace with her one evening, other than that I did not see her as I was out and she was busy. I can imagine the small outdoor area is particularly welcome in the summer months. There was one other lodger in the flat at the time I stayed. It is up quite a few stairs and it is on a busy street, so do expect noise especially if you need to leave the window open. A nice place.

This apartment is in central location between main piazza and station. Mariarosa was very friendly and helpful, apartment is very spacious and relaxing. Thank you!

The residents of MV were very easy to communicate with and did not mind that I had a very late (1am) arrival from the airport. I only saw them upon arrival; our paths did not cross for the rest of my 2-night stay. They made me feel very welcome; the apartment itself is in a wonderful old building. It is large, creatively decorated, and has 2 big and clean bathrooms. The bedroom I rented was lovely, but in the summer it is very hot so the window must be open. Which, being on a very busy street, means it is loud at night. The room would be ideal when the window can remain shut (meaning not in the summer) but for me it was too hot and loud. I don't blame Maison Ventidue -- I just didn't realise quite how hot Bologna would be in early July or how loud the street would be.
