What must be some of the homiest lodgings in Bologna are scattered across two floors of a sophisticated and rambling home in what was once part of a medieval hospital complex. Three of the character-filled units face a tranquil inner courtyard, set up for warm-weather lounging, and two others, include a triple, are part of a separate, large upstairs apartment and share a kitchen and sitting room (the apartment can also be rented in its entirety). Much of the furniture is antique or vintage, accompanied by chic accessories, and Alberta and her son, Pierfrancesco, are welcoming and helpful hosts. They serve a filling breakfast that includes Alberta’s home-baked breads and cakes, homemade jams, fresh juices, and fine hams and cheeses.
