Very Good

“Great apartment, great location, great owner!”

Reviewed 20 Feb 2020

La Porta Rossa is a short walking distance from all the attractions of Bologna and has the wonderful Mercato dell'Erbe literally round the corner. Giuseppina, the owner, could not have been more helpful and the apartment is quiet, spacious, very comfortable, well-equipped and extremely tastefully decorated. One could not ask for for more! I highly recommend a stay at La Porta Rossa and would certainly return.
