Michele was the most helpful and responsive host I've had so far. We've used Airbnb for Venice, Florence and Milan as a reference. His place is beautiful and he tells you a summary of all the places you should visit. All in all, he's one fantastic host :) thanks for having us!!!

Perfect location near the railway station and close to the university. During nights quite loud due to many bars in the street. Nice and clean.

There is not much say as our three teenage girls were only in Bologna for 12 hours! But they say the apartment was great, the host ordered them a cab to the airport (as none of the taxi numbers paid attention to them and just hung up) and generally good and helpful. Thank you.

Perfect appartment for couples. Host let us check in 3 hours earlier which was great! Apartment was clean and spacious. The air conditioning wasnt very powerfull but it helped a lot with the heat during the summer. We have no complaints about this stay. Nevertheless, we were asked to pay a 4 Euro charge per night (approximately) for "city tax", which was not mentioned prior to our arrival.

This is a fantastic apartment! Much bigger than it looks and it has everything you will need. It's close to the city centre and plenty of sights. It's a very lively area so will be a little loud until later on but this is perfect if you'd like to go out and enjoy the city. I'd highly recommend this for apartment if visiting Bologna

Michelle's apartment is in a very cool location with lots of great bars and restaurants around. The apartment was very clean. Felt secure and bad all that we needed for our short stay. We stayed over a Sunday and Monday and it was not too noisy although it was very hot due to the heatwave! Would recommend as a base to explore Bologna.
