The space

OLD TOWN CENTRE, CHARMING AND COMFORTABLE, FIRST FLOOR
In a historic building with double entrance, furnished apartment of 80 s.m. on two levels, very well finished, two bathrooms, security door, video entryphone, hi-fi system and TV on both levels, home theater in the bed room, free wi-fi, ventilation system, air conditioning, independent heating, extremely quiet .

A step away from Two Towers, 15 minutes by foot from railway station and 5 minutes by bus from Trade Fair Centre, wonderful apartment on 2 levels, fully furnished and equipped. Two bathrooms, with shower and bathtub, large and high living room with open kitchen, big bedroom, king-size bed, double sofa-bed, single couch-bed with soft foam matress.

The trophies
As evidenced by the pictures, in the living room there are hunting trophies. They are hunted in Africa almost thirty years ago, by a person very dear to me, a friend of the great Hemingway, too, who passed away. The trophies, hunted in compliance with the rules of the place, represent for me a very strong emotional bond, though I am against hunting. I know that remove them will offer me more opportunities to rent the flat, but I find that it would be a hypocrisy and a lack of respect for a person for whom I felt deep affection. I hope that people can try to understand that my point of view.

Guest access

Check in at your request but best not before 12.00; check out at free time, if it is possible; otherwise within 3 p.m..

The apartment is plenty of accessories : from basic appliances (dishwashes, clothes machine, electric oven, microwave oven), small appliances (coffee machine, mincer, toaster, ketle, juicer, etc.) as each tool for the kitchen and complete the household linen.
The wi-fi is free, no limits and has a very good signal.

Interaction with guests

I believe that receiving is an art that requires taste and empathy. I love to customize the welcome depending on the host that will come. I'm glad to know in advance their tastes in food and drink, if they have any allergy, or following specific diets. Guests will find the house always sparkling clean and sanitized, warm and comfortable.

After sanitizing the environment, each surface is buffing with the precious BLUARIA detergents, completely natural and free of phosphates, formaldehyde, parabens, EDTA, PEG, triclosan, optical brighteners, bleach, phenoxyethanol, isothiazolinone chlorine, to reduce the risk of allergies.

I have great care in offering wide availability of pillows to bed, so as to meet every need. On the table, a welcome "made in Italy" and in the fridge and pantry not miss Italian and english breakfast. The two bathrooms, one with a large shower, the other with bath, will be set up with everything you need: from towels and bathrobes, to shower gel; by hairdryers to body lotions. It will be made available to guests a "little book" of the house with all the information on the apartment and the use of its appliances, but also maps of the city and folders about the proposals for entertainment and culture. I will be available for guests AT ANY TIME and for ANY NEED.

Other things to note

Access is particularly safe: there is a front door access from the street which requires a key to open, and has a camera and speaker so you can see who is there before buzzing them into the door. There is then the main door of the apartment which is a security door and has 3 locks on it.

It's not necessary to take hairdryer: you'll find two! The ladies will find also shower slippers and, special hair towel and PURE SILK beauty pillowcase.

The apartment is lovely and is in a fanastic location for all the sights in Bologna. I went for a month and Cristina was a fantastic host. She not only explained everything to me on arrival but provided a lot of written information on where to visit and where to eat (although I swear it would be hard to discover a bad restaurant in Bologna). She even went to the trouble of filling the fridge with goodies so I didn't need to go shopping for days. During our stay she also texted us events that we could attend for free so we went to concerts and even a opera. The apartment is really well equipped and I could have arrived with a much lighter suitcase. Although it is in the middle of Bologna it is very quiet. The bar next door is convenient and welcoming.

Cristina is realy very kindness and the house is very neatness.When we arrived,there were plenty of fruit and snacks as well as various coffee,teas, water and pizza,(URL HIDDEN) had a good meal this morning. The housel is centrally located for all major attractions and it takes about ten minutes to Central Station. We are so happy during our 6days stay and we will visit next month again.

Cristina was very accommodating and communicative from the moment we got confirmation on her apartment. She also made sure that there were plenty of fruit and snacks as well as various coffee and teas, water and various refreshments as well as a bottle of procesco upon our arrival. Along with all that, if you forgot anything You needed, it was available in the apartment for your use. This was by far the best Airbnb we stayed at during our trip to Italy. The apartment is homey and spacious. It's located a quick walk from a thriving downtown area with just about everything you can imagine. It was a perfect way to take in the beauty that is Bologna. We highly recommend Cristina's apartment while visiting Bologna. You won't be sorry you did!

Wonderful flat - great location. That is what it said, and it was right. Cristina was the most welcoming hostess, making me feel very much at home. Not only was she on hand to greet me but had supplied some very tempting "goodies" so that I did not feel I had to rush out immediately. Despite being in the centre of Bologna, the flat was incredibly quiet. I think the only thing some people might find difficult are the heads of water buffalo and gazelles on the wall. This did not bother me but...

I'm really happy to know you feel very much at home, dear Feeling! About the buffalo and other trophies, although I specified in the text and in some photo legends that I can cover them, if they offend the sensibilities of the guests, you gave me a good starting point to explain better (I will write in the description of the house) which is the story of those trophies ...

My parents stayed at Cristina's house for about 2 weeks! I have to say it was absolutely an amazing time for them in Bologna :) We had the pleasure to meet Cristina, who is a really stunning, passionate, thoughtful lady. Her house is just awesome! It is very artistic and elegant, with lots of special decorations. However it is quite comfortable to live in too. It is also great in security, location. Cristina welcomed us with typical italian dessert. She also shopped breakfast in advance for us! How sweet! My parents said they had the feeling of living at home. On the other hand, Cristina was very available on anything. She always replied texts less than 30 minutes and was really patient. With being so thoughtful, she also left us the right amount of privacy! Overall, it is the best Airbnb experienced me and my family have ever had! And Cristina is absolutely the best host we could ever ask for! I would defiantly choose to stay at hers again and recommend others to do so! See you soon Cristina!

Flat out, she is THE BEST Airbnb host you could ever imagine! Just click make reservation already. This is the place.. :-D I can't say enough about what a wonderful host Cristina was during my three months stay in her place. When I arrived to her place, I was very impressed with her unique home decors. But more than anything I noticed every little kind touch here and there; she had our first italian pizza dinner ready as we arrived to her house at late hour. She also had grocery shopped for us to enjoy breakfast the next day including a week worth of food. She even prepared us bus tickets, simple personal care and home care products. She really surprised us with her professional and considerate manners... She had clean brand new beding sheets ready as well. Everything she did even before, during, after meeting us were out of LOVE. She gave us all the privacy we need during the three months but whenever there were anything we needed help such as needing replacement in light or city bus's route change, etc she were always there to help. Cristina is a beautiful lady who is so pleasant to be arround also as a friend. Just to let you know Bologna is a focal point to travel in train to many other Italian cities such as Florence, Venice, Modena, Rome, etc. You will find out that Cristina's place is located in the City Center (literally the best location inside the town). You are only 5 mins away from grocery stores, outdoor market, main traction (two towers), & 10 mins away from train station. Cristina is a very fair and generous person so please be kind to her.

Estelle, your words moved me. I do not know if I deserve so much gratitudne, but I'm certain of one thing: you have perfectly caught the spirit that animates me, trying to accommodate each person respecting its culture, its customs and its country: LOVE. Thank you a bunch, dear.

"Questa casa non è un albergo" è il mio motto. Far sentire gli ospiti come a casa loro, il mio obiettivo. Ho cercato di far tesoro di tutte quelle piccole o grandi cose che hanno reso i miei viaggi o le mie vacanze meno piacevoli di quanto avrebbero potuto essere: una colazione misera, un letto troppo piccolo o troppo duro, una stanza rumorosa o in cui trapelava la luce mattutina, un box doccia minuscolo, l'asciugacapelli adatto ad un bimbo, non certo ai preziosissimi capelli di una donna, e potrei continuare... e sulla scorta delle mie esperienze ho allestito un appartamento su misura per viaggiatori molto esigenti. Ogni ospite ha un'accoglienza personalizzata, basata sui propri gusti, le proprie preferenze e le caratteristiche del proprio viaggio.
Bologna è una città meravigliosa, immeritatamente meno nota di altre città d'arte italiane. E' vivace, accogliente, ricca di sapori, odori e colori.
Il mio appartamento è situato in una zona del centro storico perfetta per scoprire la città in tutti i suoi risvolti: da quello artistico, a quello gastronomico, da quello della musica, a quello della vivacità della vita studentesca dell'Alma Mater, la più antica Università del mondo, datata 1088.
La mia ospitalità sarà gentile e generosa, come la persona che cerco di essere ogni giorno.
Cristina
