In May 2011, Italian language school ALCE in Bologna opened a third student house just 400m from the school. Bilbo House is a newly refurbished, first-floor apartment with five big rooms, two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen with washing machine and a common room with TV. There is also free WiFi throughout the apartment. The city centre and Park Giardini Margherita are within easy walking distance. The non-smoking accommodation is managed by ALCE, which is already taking bookings.
