Lovely comfortable appartment, spotlessly clean and peaceful. Staff super helpful.
Good facilities, superb location and wifi excellent.
Road outside was dug up and fenced off but that is temporary.
location; access via pin code; perfect wifi connection; kitchen facilities (we did not cook but you can easily bring ham, cheese and wine home with no risk to miss glasses, knife nor operer:))
sometimes the hot water boiler is not efficient enough if 4 persons want to take shower one after another (we were there in the middle of winter which might be the most demanding period of the year).
Location was great - right in the centre. The apartment was clean and large and had everything we needed - including the infamous wine glasses
Great central location to explore Bologna. The apartment was comfortable and good size rooms.
Would be a bit crowded if there were 4 people staying. Could do with another soft chair and a few more plates!
The Residence was situated right next to the towers in the heart of the university district and close to the Piazza Maggiore. The apartment was spacious, with modern furniture and impeccable kitchen equipment, including a dishwasher. There were laundry facilities in the basement. Instructions for arrival were given clearly and lucidly, as were those for using the various devices in the apartment. Our linen was changed on day 3, and the apartment was serviced.
When we arrived (at the end of October) the heating was not functioning, although the engineer came the next day to fix it. He was unable to fix the bathroom heating during our stay, which was decidedly not a plus point.
50 yards from the two towers. Via Rizzoli is the central avenue between all the sites to visit ( on one side) and all the best places to eat ( on the other side) the flat was modern clean and quite ( most of the time) . Second floor served by a quick lift. Two security doors at the enterance. External and flat door both pin code protected. Not cheap but worth the money. The area felt safe and friendly day and night.
The enterance door is not immediately obvious from the street ( pre- check what it looks like on Google maps) The flat was well sound-insulated against street noise- the only issue came around 3am Saturday morning when the students camped in the street for a while - heard from the front bedroom but not the back.
Only seating for 2 in the living room, other than the dining table chairs.
Can be noisy for lot of night
- location excellent. - very near of city centre, facilities, shops, market.
We have stayed here twice. No key access is perfect. Location can't be beat. Décor is excellent. In all, a perfect place!
We probably won't return for six months or so.
Location. Large. Clean.
The apartment was spacious and reasonably furnished. The windows managed to keep out the noise from the much trafficked road.
The shower was filthy and the bidet was extremely small. The internet connection was unpredictable. We paid too much for what we got.
Central location was fantastic, very quiet when the windows were shut, great view and spacious. Laundry not as scary as expected (based on previous reviews lol).
We were supposed to be emailed and advised when our clean was to happen (we stayed 7 nights) but this did not happen and it took place after only two nights, which we thought could've happened a couple days later. A little expensive but considering the location was worth it.
Central Location Comfortable clean apartment
Air conditioning didn't cool down apartment - checked and it was at its max.
Location Top-floor apartment was quiet and roomy
location facilities value
Good location. Private, yet in the centre.
No cleaning service.
Personal attention very helpful
Everything was excellent, location, apartment, we enjoyed our trip very much. It was a lovely and comfortable place to stay highly recommenden. Very very impressed.
Excellent location Well appointed, modern clean apartments Good code system to access apartments Very good communication beforehand about details & instructions for apartment
No wine glasses in apartments which was extremely unusual compared to many other apartments we have rented in many different locations all around Italy for many years
Petronio Residence is right where you want to be in Bologna. Its clean well equipped. We would definitely stay here again! It is an apartment and so there is no on-site staff (which suited us perfectly). Getting the key/code was easy and settling the bill etc. was no problem as we just arranged a time to meet with the manager at the apartment.
This is more funny than bad, but the laundry in the basement of the building is like a set from a bad 'slasher' film: pitch black (until the lights come on), strange smelling, and a little scary. It is, however, perfectly safe and the washing and drying facilities work well.
No on site office
Central location; keyless entry excellent; fresh decor; shower good.
Only Italian TV available; light in shower was not repaired even though we reported it on first day; no wine glasses; air con very weak and did not cool the room - even though it was only spring, it must be sweltering in summer
Clean, comfortable bed in a great spot,close to everything. Laundry available. Nice to have more than just a hotel room for 4 day. Would recommend.
The air conditioning was a bit problematic. Could not keep cool enough. It would have been nice if a small guide had been left for us to include abus schedule train schedule, available tours and recommendations for restaurants. This would have been helpful.
