= EMBASSY OF BOLOGNA =
Convenience, elegance, comfort, quiet and perfect working order – always. Embassy of Bologna, without any doubt one of the most prestigious, light-filled, roomiest and comfortable rentals in town is located in the heart of the Historical Center, the pleasant Piazza dei Martiri-Via Marconi area, only 400 mts. to the train and bus station, 700 mts. to Piazza Maggiore, 300 mts. to Via Indipendenza, the core of Bolognese glamorous life and its shops, stores, excellent restaurants and whatever makes this amazing city the Italian capital of good living and fun. The nice bi-weekly clothes and flea market, La Piazzola, is only steps away, and so is a number of monuments and attractions – MamBo (the city Modern Art museum), the Cinematheque, the brand new Auditorium, Arena del Sole theatre, Montagnola park, the University, much more. Embassy of Bologna can be reached by car and both private and public parking (on-street – safe) can be found nearby, but the great plus is the proximity of the train station, which allows easy and fairly inexpensive travelling to the major Northern and Central Italian cities – e. g.: Florence, only 45 minutes. The city bus stop is at the door.

== TESTIMONIALS ==
"We spent an unforgettable week in bologna due to the rental which was well located in the town, with excellent amenities and a very good welcome. Due also to the historical treasures of this town and of the nearby cities. Not to miss if traveling in this part of Italy..." (Christophe M., France)
"Embassy of Bologna is a great place to stay. Very clean and bright. Two very nice bathrooms. Big bedrooms with good beds. The Wifi is perfect! We thought with two children, on the 6th floor, it would be a little difficult, but no way...it is perfect..also because you have everything nearby. Supermarket around the corner, with nice, fresh bread. Near the trainstation, with connections to Parma, Florence. In about 15 minutes you walk to the city center. Busstop in front of the apartment. When you travel by car, you can park your car nearby in a parkinggarage. I would recommend this apartment highly. Cosimo is a very nice man. He helped to save our holiday in Bologna. Thanks again for that! We loved it there!!!" (Corine B., The Netherlands)
"Walking distance to many sites, 7 minutes to the station. The "double" beds are about the size of California kings - two twin beds made as one king. Someone was waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived. Good communication with the owner. A/C worked well. We would definitely stay there again. Try the excellent pizza at the restaurant across the road." (Luanne L., USA)
"Wonderful apartment, light-filled, central, very clean and quiet, elegantly furnished with everything in perfect working order. The owner welcomed us with the utmost friendliness and remained at our total disposal for the length of our stay. The terrace is kind of small yet perfect for dining outside. The area is ideal to explore Bologna without a car. Piazza Maggiore is only 10 minutes walk and the city buses stop right at the door. Plenty of restaurants, stores, shops, ice cream parlors and food market. The train station is only 300 mts. making this apartment a great headquarters to visit the many northen and central Italian cities by train. No need for a car, but both public and private parking can be easily found nearby. On top of that, a great value for your money considering the quality, the convenience, the comfort and elegance of this superior quality apartment. Absolutely recommended" (Monica M., UK)
"We - a family of 6 - stayed at Embassy in February-March 2013. The apartment was absolutely beyond expectations, pictures do not do justice to it at all and I can't think of enough superlatives to describe this true jewel. It is absolutely beautiful, sort of like living in a fine home while on vacation, ideal for families with children. The furnishings are very tasteful and the house is exceptionally roomy and airy, with a nice terrace overlooking a courtyard. The bathrooms are attractive, clean and efficient, and so is the kitchen. Though located in the city center, it is blissfully quiet day and night and just minutes to the main tourist drag like Piazza Maggiore, the Two Towers etc.. We had no problem walking to the restaurants, art galleries and sights... All very easy and close enough to walk back to the apartment to rest or take a quick nap. Having the railway station so close helped a lot as we were able to visit congested cities like Florence, Milan and Venice leaving the car behind and saving. The owner welcomed us like family, was very accommodating and had excellent suggestions. We were happy with the price too - an apartment of this size and quality would cost double this price in a major city in the us. We felt so lucky to be staying here for two weeks!" (Tony M., USA)
"The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable. Liked the south facing balcony off the kitchen as it's a great place to sit in the evening. Location good as just a 20 minute walk to Piazza Maggiore. The booking and key handover was easy & efficient. We would stay here again when back in Bologna." (Pam T., UK)
"5 of us were in Bologna for the Pet Trade event Zoomark. The apartment was perfect for us & great value for money compared to a hotel. The owner was very helpful even returning a set of keys which got left back to the UK. We will definitely stay here again & will recommend to friends wishing to visit this great city!" (Piers S., UK)
"I had the chance to be the very first guest of Embassy of Bologna
(February 2013). The apartment had just undergone renovation and was
in perfect shape, everything really working perfectly. My family and I
truly enjoyed this place. It is very large and ideal for a family of 6
like ours. Bathrooms, kitchen and bedrooms were spotless, the whole
apartment was very quiet both at night and during the day, parking was
easy to find in the street and there are a couple of great pizzerias
nearby. The house is conveniently located to visit the city, you get
anywhere in minutes even (or especially) without a car, all is walking
distance. A great plus: the terrace! We absolutely recommend this
apartment as excellent value for your money". (Bjorn E., Sweden)
"We were lucky to run into this apartment. The location couldn't have been better. it's a few meters away from the main train station. The bus station is right in front of the building door. It is very modern and very clean. The two bathrooms are spotless. There were three of us but the place could easily fit many more. The bedding was brand new as well as the towels. We arrived late at night but Cosimo was waiting for us and he had brought us fruits, yogurt and water which was a very nice gesture of him. The kitchen was fully equipped with cooking utensils and cleaning stuff. The only problem was the internet connection. It was bad at the beginning, but Cosimo tried his best to contact the provider and got it fixed. Other than that, everything was great and I would definitely stay there again if I ever go back to Bologna." (Ereen S., Egypt)
"I've been to Bologna 3 times so far and stayed at different places. I find Embassy Bologna to be the best place I've stayed so far. Great location. Within walking distance to the train station, grocery stores, pizzerias and even to Piazza Maggiore! The bus stops right in front of the entrance. Rooms are spacious for 6 of us. Will definity stay here again! Thank you Cosimo!" (Shake S., Malaysia)
"Appartamento spazioso, luminoso, pulitissimo, molto silenzioso e tra i più confortevoli finora affittati. Perfetto per una famiglia o un gruppo numeroso. Localizzata in zona estremamente centrale e comoda per tutti gli itinerari, Piazza Maggiore e stazione FS a due passi, parcheggio facilmente reperibile all''angolo, la casa è arredata molto bene con mobili di vari stili e molto eleganti, perfetta funzionalità degli elettrodomestici e wifi. Abbiamo particolarmente apprezzato la terrazza, che, benché non grandissima, è sufficiente per una simpatica colazione all''aperto. Ottima ed amichevole l''accoglienza, tutto a livello di buonissima professionalità. Prezzo eccellente. Assolutamente da raccomandare." (Patrizia P., Italy)
"Roomy, light-and-bright, very clean, quiet -- defintely one of the most comfortable apartments we have rented so far. It is ideal for a family or a large group. It is situated in a very central area with everything at hand, the railroad station and Piazza Maggiore only a few minutes walk, parking can be easily found nearby. The house is very well furinished with both modern and antiques, all elegant. Appliances and wifi are in perfect working order. We particularly appreciated the terrace, which is not very large yet sufficient for a nice breakfast al fresco. Great, friendly welcome, great professional level. Excellent price too!! Absolutely recommended." (Patrizia P., Italy)
"We stayed for 4 nights. The apartment was lovely - clean, well equiped and very quiet. It's within easy walking distance of the centre of Bologna and a taxi rank is just around the corner. I left my keys in the apartment by mistake and the owner has kindly posted them back to me - great service!!" (Marion H., UK)
