I am a freelance designer and media professional. I recently moved house and I am offering my former home for rent to people visiting Bologna for short or long stays.
Il più bel appartamento dove ho potuto soggiornare! Non solo bello esteticamente ma un luogo dove si sente una energia serena e dove si respira positività!
Appartamento comodo, luminoso, design, con tutte le praticità e super centrale.
Thanks to Eli!
I will be happy to come again!
I counsel everyone to rent this place to have a beautiful holiday!

We stayed in Eli's apartment for 6 weeks and loved every minute. The apartment is big and bright with lovely rooftop views of Bologna. It is in a great location, just on the edge of the centro storico. We walked everywhere, it's very accessible. Bologna is a beautiful city with great markets and friendly people. We love it and will be back. When we come back, we will definitely stay in Eli's beautiful apartment. Thanks again, Eli, for everything!!
All has been said already in the other reviews, i agree: a great place with beautiful light and furniture and very nice atmosphere. Thanks a lot Eli!
I stayed at Eli's flat for a week with two friends. We could have easily had a fourth person with us. The flat is beautifully decorated, complete with all the appliances you might need and the location is excellent. It was great value for money.
Eli is always available and very reliable, without being invasive.
I will definitely look for this flat again next time I visit Bologna.
We stayed at Eli's apartment for 5 nights but could have stayed for weeks. It is delightful - spacious, beautifully decorated, clean, well located, airy, full of light and uncluttered.
Eli was the perfect host, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for a memorable stay in Bologna!
Fantastic spacious apartment! So bright and airy, it felt like we had our own home in Bologna. It's also a lovely quiet street and only a short walking distance to the town centre. Also very conveniently situated to the best gelati in Bologna! Eli had some great food and shopping recommendations for us and was so helpful and kind.
Gorgeous haven in centro storico was gorgeous indeed. It is a great apartment, beautifully designed, with lots of space, white and bright. Everything works well, the kitchen is fully equipped (nice to have a dishwasher!), the bed guarantees a good night rest, and there even is a walk-in closet for your clothes. The bathroom is spacious and nice.
The location, too, is gorgeous. Via Fondazza is a very quiet street in the historic centre of Bologna. You’ll find shops in the same block, bars, and restaurants. You will reach all the interesting places without getting wet if it rains or burnt when the sun shines: there are portici (arcades) all the way from the apartment to every place of interest in Bologna. And for the art-lovers: Via Fondazza is the street where Morandi lived and worked almost all his live and painted all his beautiful still lives.
And, finally, Eli is a great host: she welcomed us at the appointed time, she is a very communicative, gave us all the information we needed, explained wittily the in’s and out’s of the apartment, and she is a native speaker of English as well as Italian. And she is a very nice person!
Gorgeous haven in centro storico is a gorgeous base to visit the beautiful, lively, old and young city of Bologna. We had a great time and will certainly return tot Evi’s haven!
Beautiful stylish and calm apartment just as in photos. Eli was lovely and v helpful with FOOD (of high importance in Bologna) suggestions and us navigating around Bologna. We had a relaxing peaceful stay in an old apartment building with the added plus of beautiful furnishings and alot of space. Thank you Eli!
I cannot speak highly enough of Eli's apartment in Bologna. It exceeded all my expectations. It is in the perfect location to get around central Bologna on foot and is so wonderfully light and airy with really high ceilings. The views from the living room and bedroom are stunning and although it is located centrally it is very quiet at night so you can sleep with the windows open and wake up to the beautiful sunrise and view from the bedroom. Eli has a wonderful eye for design so the apartment is beautifully decorated with quirky pieces of furniture and great lighting that really add to the ambience.
The bedroom is very large with a lot of natural light. It also has good shutters and curtains to block out the light. There is a full length mirror in the bedroom. Hanging space is found in the a separate storage room off the living room if needed.
Eli is the perfect hostess and really went out of her way to ensure I had everything I needed. The apartment is well equipped with everything you need and there are local grocery stores 1-2 mins walk away and plenty of fabulous restaurants/ bars.
I felt incredibly safe in the neighbourhood and the apartment is very secure so I had no concerns being a solo female traveller. It is on the top floor so a few flights of stairs to go up but its all worth it once you see the view.
I would have no hesitation recommending this apartment . I will certainly be returning again and have no desire to look at any other apartments in Bologna as it would be very hard to find anything more perfect than this one. Thank you Eli !

Thank you Sheridan, your home in Bologna anytime!
Bologna!! Amazing! So many gorgeous foods to sample, shops to see, and sights! And if you are lucky you will stumble down an alley by accident and hear a woman practicing opera ah Bella!! And after a walk around you can easily wander back to Eli's home and air and relax it is absolutely quiet.. Perhaps you have bought some groceries and want to cook a little well the kitchen is beautifully equipped.. And I love the cute bathroom .. I'm sad I forgot to take a picture of the tub. It was nice to be able to wash our clothes. This home has so much character I felt so comfortable staying here.
Eli is very friendly and reliable. Her house is elegant and quiet, in a central location. It is a lovely place to stay!
Eli is the best host you could ever find. she's very sunny and friendly, but she's also serious and thorough.
