Situated 10 min walk from station and 10 min from centre of Bologna. Numerous places to eat and shop nearby. Francesca very welcoming and informative. Apartment had everything that was needed for a 4 night stay.

We flew to Bologna leaving our busy lives in Australia behind, looking forward to visiting an Italian city which we'd heard good things about, but never visited before. Federica welcomed us warmly to L'8 Boutique Apartments, which helped to shake off the long haul flight. It took a couple of days to get settled and leave our work behind. The apartment was quiet, very comfortable and good value with a balcony outside where we could sit and chat at the end of the day. On our host's recommendation we ate out at the local restaurants lots, but sometimes we used the kitchen to prepare food which was fine as well. Security was very good with an electronic code system that we had confidence in and gave us confidence to come and go as we pleased without worrying. It was also good to know that the people looking after the building have a family history associated with the place, that they care about it and wanted us to enjoy our stay in Bologna which we did, very much. Thank you Federica and Francesca. Bologna grew on us day-by-day. We enjoyed walking, climbing the church towers and walking through the old buildings in the city. Bologna feels like a good place to live and we hope that we might come back some day to spend a bit longer here.

The tastefully renovated family house is a real gem in Bologna. Location is optimal and the toughtful touches from the owners just beat all hotels hands down. I had made a mistake on the reservation and Francesca did her best to acconmodate me with a lovely smile - although it was all my fault! The place is very spacious, clean, authentic, lovely, great location, easy to acces from the station and the tasteful renovation is a testimony of the owners' love for the place and their commitment to provide an enjoyable stay for their guests. Would give 6 stars if i could.

We booked originally for 3 nights but when we asked to extend our stay by another night it was no problem we simply moved to a different room. The rooms are great, stocked with all the appliances you may need. They are spacious, modern and extremely clean. I would recommend L8 Boutique Apartments 5***** Regards Kev. 😀👍

From the moment my booking was done the customer service and experience with Federica from L'8 was incredible. I had a strange schedule meaning I got to the apartment late and left early - but everything was just seamless. I had the top apartment with a beautiful terrace - inside was immaculate, tasteful and perfect. A short walk from the central station - I didn't get a chance to explore the surrounds too much, but it had a cool/young vibe. I would definitely stay here again.

This was our first trip to Bologna and were very happy with almost all the choices we made. Our accommodation was very comfortable and the apartment although lacking some natural light was lovely. It has everything and its location is perfect for exploring the city on foot. Keyless entry and a list of recommendations for local restaurants were nice touches. We would certainly return to both Bologna and the L’8 Boutique Apartments.

We had an amazing stay at Federica and Francesa's apartment in Bologna. First, Federica was so accommodating by allowing two additional guests to stay with us (I made the reservation prior to knowing they were joining us) and she changed my apartment to a larger one at no cost. She was also so helpful in answering all my questions prior to coming to Italy. The apartment was so well decorated, charming, clean and had all the necessary amenities. I especially enjoyed the complimentary Nespresso pods. Federica also arranged for cab service for us to get to the airport and train station. Central location in Bologna - only a ten minute walk to the main sights. I highly recommend this apartment for anyone traveling to Bologna. Thank you Federica for being such a terrific host!

This little hotel was by far the best, loveliest and cleanest place both me and my mum had ever stayed. It was well equipt (a dishwasher and washing machine) was tastefully decorated (lovely books and ornate objects) and was in the perfect location!! I will defiantly be coming back and I can’t recommend it more. Thank you Federica and Francesca!! The print out of where to eat and what to see was extremely useful and you really have thought of what visitors may need.

There are several apartments. We stayed in one on the top floor. Bad news is that there are lots of steps (approx 55) so if you are not good with steps then go for one of the apartments on the lower floors. They even have apartments on the ground floor. Good news is that we had a very spacious apartment with everything you could need (including cooker, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, crockery and cutlery) and a terrace where every morning we could have breakfast. Very quiet. Beautifully decorated. Felt like a home from home. Location is great. There are excellent bars and restaurants just around the corner and you are about a 10 minute walk from the main square and a 10 minute walk away from the train station. We are hoping these apartments don't become too popular as we will certainly want to return. Thank you Federica and Francesca for the good communication and hospitality.

Francesca and Federica became a part of the family. My wife and I rented 7 of the 8 apartments in L8 to host our families during our destination wedding to Bologna. L8 recommended a photographer (MaMa Photo). They found a florist who made a picture we sent her of a bouquet almost identical. They were accommodating in every way imaginable. Oh, and the apartments. Wow. Each one is unique, attention to detail. They feel like home. Best location in Bologna. If you are looking for a place to stay, don't look any further.
