Altana Bologna is an exclusive apartment in the historical center of Bologna. Located in Via Caprarie 1, between the 'piazza maggiore' and the famous 'two towers', it's the perfect starting point to visit the town and all its artistic heritage.

The space

The 40m2 apartment is on the 5th and last floor (with elevator) located in an early 20th-century building set, very close to the main touristic and cultural attractions.
It's fully equipped with all modern household appliances and made for your comfort.

There is also a 10m2 and 30m2 terraces on Bologna's roofs, with a panorama of the Asinelli tower and right under the big Santa Maria della Vita Dome, where in summer (under beach umbrellas) you can have breakfast or prepare barbecue.

The place is amazing and has breathtaking terraces. The rooftop is just the best spot in town!! The flat is comfy, very well located and Gaëlle was really nice and available. Would recommend to anyone going to Bologna

We had a fantastic time here! The apartment is in a great location and is clean and well-presented. The terraces are fabulous with great views, and are comfortable even on the hottest day due to the umbrellas and outdoor shower. We were a bit dubious about the sofa bed before arrival but it was very comfortable, if a bit creaky. Gaelle was easy to communicate with, and her husband provided us with great recommendations for our stay. Thank you!

A beautiful and unusual apartment in the heart of Bologna. This is definitely five star so don't stay at a boring hotel. You have everything you need here and more. If you want to live like a local in a wonderful setting then stay won't regret it.

Altana Bologna is in an excellent location for exploring Bologna and experiencing all the amazing food this town has to offer. The apartment is tidy and cozy and the outdoor spaces make it feel much larger. The views are stunning from the roof deck! There are 2 sets of spiral staircases (1 to reach the apartment and 1 to reach the roof deck), these could be a problem for someone with limited mobility but were no issues for us. Communications and check-in were efficient. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a great place to stay in Bologna. It's right in the historic centre near Piazza Maggiore, less than 100 metres away. I was were greeted by Gaelle and her husband who are both very kind. They explained everything, gave hints what to see in the city including favourite rastaurants. The apartment is on the 6h floor spectacularly overlooking the roofs and towers of the town from inside and the two marvellous roof terraces which I could use even in late October. It is within one of Bologna's best food shopping streets. The apartment was cozy, stylish and clean. Everything like on the pictures. Used the fully equipped kitchen several times to prepare food bought in the shops nearby. I enjoyed my stay of 10 days very much and would go again any time.

This is a stylishly furnished and equipped apartment. The views of Bologna are spectacular. Older people should know that, as a previous reviewer writes, there is one further flight of stairs beyond the elevator to climb to get tot the front door of the apartment, and then a spiral stair to the actual apartment. The one deck is at this level but to reach the large deck, there is a another spiral stair to climb. Now for most fit people this would be no problem, but for older folks like us, the spirals took some getting used to. Particularly if you have heavy luggage to carry. However I highly recommend this place if the above is not relevant to you.

I stayed in Altana Bologna for 10 days during some business seminars in Bologna. My impression of this appartment is somewhat mixed. The appartments' main advantages are first of all location and views. Located in the very heart of Bologna, everything is just a step away. Plus you get to have great views of the city since it is located on the 6th floor and it has a nice terrace on the 7th. Its furniture and decoration is stylish, and its owners are polite enough to give their help when needed (for instance, luggage storage and transportation while checking in) However, my main problem during this stay was the appartments interior temperature. In December Bologna is cold (average 3 degrees celcius) and the appartment lacks central heating. There are two air conditioning units that heat up the place but it is not enough, so most of the times I was feeling cold in the appartment. This is mainly because the appt is located top floor and has large windows that cannot keep the heat inside. In addition , it must be clarified that the appartment is actually located on the 6th floor , and since the elevator goes up to 4th you have to climb the stairs for the remaining two floors.
