We spent two nights at thoroughly enjoyed it. We spent the first night at the apartment ... very spacious for one couple and would suit a second couple or family members as long as they were ok with a pull-out sofa bed. Loved the little balcony at the apartment. The bedroom in the B&B was very nicely done and size... More

Lovely room with air conditioning (needed), lovely bathroom/shower with bathrobes and slippers, and quiet in spite of being on Santo Stefano. Giovanni was very helpful, advising on restaurants and booking them for us. The breakfast was excellent with lovely fresh fruit, creatively prepared, muesli, delicious croissant, good bread and cheeses and cold meats. Jugs of coffee and many teas to... More

I stayed in the studio, which is down the road from the B&B. The studio was pretty, spacious and comfortable, and I enjoyed the freedom of having my own set of keys and not having to have breakfast with strangers. I stayed there for 4 nights, nobody ever changed linens and towels nobody took out the trash (and there was... More

We have enjoyed two stays at B&B Santo Stefano with Giovanni in the past year. Each time has been fantastic. On our first stay we had the room which faced the courtyard, it was impeccably clean and cared for. We enjoyed a large bathroom that included both a soaking tub and shower. I do not eat grains and Mille was... More

He gave us some great ideas for our time in Bologna, and also shared recommendations for some of the other cities on our trip through... More

B&B Santo Stefano was our final stop on a 9-week journey through France and Italy. (We were there five nights.) It was the perfect place. The B&B was spotless, the breakfast was good, and Giovanni was wonderful to work with before and after arrival. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. That should say it all, I think. BTW,... More
