I got married to my best friend on 12.12.2018!
It was a beautiful wedding in traditional Indian style. Needless to say we honeymoon’d in Italy…..!
We chose Bologna as one of our first cities to travel together and that’s how the question of where to stay in Bologna came up. While looking for places to stay in Bologna’s historic centre, we were confused! On a cold winter day searching online, we randomly chanced upon the website of L’8Boutique Apartments.

We were delighted to stay in @l8boutique during our time in Bologna 😍 not only is the apartment 5 minutes away from the centre of town but also so stylish, warm and chic! It has everything that an apartment should have….. including a dish washer!🙌 (This is apartment number 808 that we stayed in) Oh did I mention it has subscription to Netflix and chill ….😉😎 Big thanks to the owners Federica and Francesca for being amazing hosts and suggesting us top notch places to eat in Bologna. Buon Natale a voi🎄🎅 #APlaceCalledHome @l8boutique
I was already following them on Instagram and instantly connected for a stay in the city. Owned by two sisters- Federica and Francesca, L’8 Boutique Apartments is the home of their grandmother that they have lovingly restored for the world to enjoy.
A modern well furnished space in the heart of Bologna, L’8 is easy to enter and exit as a unique electronic code is given on arrival. There is no key system here and that was quite cool (and non Italian) and hassle free.
At L’8 we had the pleasure to stay in Apartments 803 and 808 (with terrace). The apartments offer a unique homely space with every possible comfort. Add Nespresso machine and Netflix subscription to that comfort 😉
L’8 is also only 10 minutes walk from the train station and a stone’s throw away from the city’s biggest landmarks. A room for two would cost somewhere between EUR 100-130. But these rates may vary as per timing and season but this is the average cost of stay in Bologna. I recommended L’8 to many people and loved that they loved it too!
Staying in Bologna never looked so simple….. I’d book L’8 for my next visit too!
