Great apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three stayed in this apartment for five nights. Giancarlo communicated well in advance of our visit and even let us use his local cell phone number to secure a restaurant reservation.. The apartment is located in the historic center, just a short walk from the Piazza Maggiore and about a ten or 15 minute walk to the train station. It was also spacious and comfortable. One should be aware that the apartment is in an urban environment with lots of students, and we experienced a good deal of noise from the upstairs neighbors. Still, it wasn’t disruptive, and we would gladly stay here again. Thank you, Giancarlo!

Wonderful in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Marsala Charme for 21/2 weeks in October, 2017. It's a large, well furnished and perfectly clean space. It is located within an easy walk to the train and bus stations, so I took many day trips. The central location is really perfect to explore everything Bologna has to offer. Giancarlo and Fabrizia are wonderful hosts and they have supplied everything to make it home.

Feel at home and in the middle of it all.

  • 4 of 5

Hard to go wrong at via marsala. Lovely apartment smack dab in the center of Bologna with great food and things to do and see. Everything you need is in the apartment. You are in an urban setting so there is some ambient noise from neighbors but nothing unreasonable and no street noise at all. The washing machine was very nice as we had been on the road for a bit. The wifi was not strong which is my only criticism. But the hosts Giancarlo and Fabrizzia were very nice and available for any questions. I would not hesitate to recommend for short or long stays in this fabulous city.

Quiet apartment near the square

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very quiet and is well appointed. It's also very convenient: close to the square (ten minutes on foot), train station (fifteen), and university (ten-fifteen, depending on the building).

Central and spacious apartment

  • 3 of 5

After some initial problems which were sorted by Giancarlo quickly, my sister and I settled into this apartment nicely. We stayed for 4 nights and used Bologna as a home to visit Venice and Florence.

It was in a great location, we ate in many of the local trattorias and found our was to some close-by supermarkets to stock up on supplies.

We stayed at this apartment for 4 nights in May, 2017. Nice, large apartment in a great location. Centrally located and close to all sites, restaurants, grocery, etc. 10 - 15 minute walk to the Bologna train station. We would recommend this property and would plan to stay there again if we return to Bologna.
