Fabulous position to walk this beautiful city. Elegant accommodation...why would you stay in a hotel. Owner very friendly and most helpful with directions and suggestions.

Central location, beautiful city, unbelievably great food at great prices. Easy, fast train access to other cities in the region, like Modena, Parma, Ravenna, Florence.

The parking situation was challenging. Street parking is difficult to find due to all the construction in the area--it's taking up all the places. They do have a small parking area, but it can get filled up. Also, be prepared to climb stairs--up to the B&B and also up the stairs inside if you have an upstairs room. I'm glad we brought our small suitcases. A large one would have been quite challenging. The area itself is very near the University, and one has to be tolerant of a lot of graffiti and some noise at night.
Our hostess could not have been more gracious. We not only changed our time of arrival, but then showed up 45 min. late. She didn't bat an eye and greeted us as family. Our room was nice, and I especially appreciated all the hooks and shelves in the very bright bathroom. It was also nice returning to a well-cleaned room after a long day. My husband and I personally liked the communal breakfast! We met quite a few friendly and interesting people. For me, that was a real plus. Another real plus (although not for my waistline) was those cakes. They were delicious. My husband even got a lesson on how to use the Italian coffee pot.

Convenient location, clean and modern. Tiziana was a delightful host and had some great recommendations for things to do nearby. The breakfast was out of this world. Great experience and will come back the next time I'm in Bologna.

Myself and my husband are quiet people and the communal breakfast arrangements (one long table) made us feel slightly uncomfortable, however everyone was very friendly.
Friendly, very clean and comfortable rooms. Location could not be better.

Nothing to report
This is a double apartment in the heart of the old University area of Bologna in a very quiet and traffic-free location. The breakfasts were extremely good (and sociable - one big table) - particularly the home-made cakes. The apartment is on the 1st floor of the building, there is a lift to that floor, within the apartment there are 2 rooms on each floor. our room had a private (external) bathroom - the room was very comfortable. One of the reasons we were in Bologna was to go to the opera - impossible to find anywhere nearer than this - we could easily have gone back to use the toilet at the interval!

The access to the upper rooms was not ideal.
Wonderful location and excellent value.

Casa Ilaria is in the heart of Bologna yet quiet and spacious. The breakfasts were amazing, particularly the cakes freshly baked every day by the B&B manager. With all guests at the same breakfast table in the kitchen cum breakfast room cum reception area, the atmosphere was convivial. The B&B manager was very welcoming and flexible. We would definitely stay there again if we returned to Bologna.

Tiziana was very friendly and also very knowledgeable - specifically about good value places to eat and interesting places to visit. Also the breakfast's were great - we especially liked her delicious home made cakes!

Steep and narrow staircase to get to room.
Location close to city center. Comfortable beds. Clean room.

The internet connection in my room was slow
The welcome, the service.... the succulent homemade cakes & of course the staff; Mrs Tiziana

The only thing we didn't like was that we couldn't have stayed longer! We really enjoyed Bologna - the people, the city and the food!
Location was perfect, within walking distance of everything. Room was very comfortable. Tiziana was very friendly and helpful - she booked a cab for the morning we departed. Breakfast was delicious!

We spent a very nice week-end in Bologna and this BnB is perfectly located to explore the city with a huge and delightful breakfast with housemade cakes. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Do not hesitate.

Tatiana was so very kind and accommodating. She even baked a cake every day for our breakfast (included in the price). The building, built in 1800, is very well kept, but the entire space is so majestic, yet adapted to provide modern amenities. We loved it.

Only one minor drawback which comes to my mind is lack of chair or desk inside our room - for us it was a non-issue as we spent only one night there, but I believe it might be a small disadvantage if someone would like to spend more time in the room.
We liked almost everything: friendly and helpful host, good location, perfect cleanliness, comfortable bed and a very nice breakfast. We arrived early (before noon), but our host was waiting for us, and room was already available. We got a map and some recommendations for a restaurants. Bologna is a beautiful city, we hope we will be back one day, to spend more time there.

Heat. The heating in the house was almost non-existent. The first night was really cold, while the other two were bearable. Very sad considering the rest was perfect.
Every thing was excellent: food, bed, cleanliness, room size. Extremely cheap and we did not just have our room, but the whole apartment with private bathroom and living room.

Very beatiful B&B in the center of Bologna in the students area. Nice bars, shipping area and theatre in less than 5 min walk. The room and bathroom are very comfortable, the flat is very beatiful, the breakfast is homemade and the hosts are very nice!

The location and the service was fabulous. I have stayed in Bologna for so many years for business, but staying at Casa Ilaria was certainly 100% enjoyable and made our trip really memorable. Great place! I can't recommend it more if you don't want to pay top dollar.
