Lovely property in a classic building. Giovanni is a considerate host and the rooms are simple, modern yet elegant. Probably the best WIFI we've ever had in a B&B. Very convenient to Piazza Maggiore and restaurants. Take a cab from the station, but then you can walk everywhere.

Beautiful, modern rooms. Great, extensive breakfast. Very trendy field. Conveniently located. Bologna is a more expensive than compared to most of the rest of Italy, but the room price was very reasonable relative to what you get. This place is also home to the world's slowest elevator. Seriously, come prepared for small talk with the owner or 2 minutes of... More

We spent a couple of nights here between Christmas and new year. It is located on the top floor of a palazzo on a lovely street. There is a lift (possibly the world's slowest lift, but it does work). The B&B is like an apartment. You enter a hallway which is like a mini library. The décor is very tasteful... More

When we booked it we did not realized it was an apartment. However, once we got in we felt like being at home. All very clean, located in the center of the city, excellent breakfast, nice views on the on city, not noisy at all (even if you always depend on other's behaviour). The parking issue is well solved with... More

What a find -- great location, kind owner and staff, stylish and comfortable rooms, this is a wonderful spot. Delicious breakfast buffet, helpful recommendations about Bologna, really pretty perfect. Read another review that said it was 10-15 mins from the center -- for us it was more like five, along the arcaded Santa Stefano. Bologna is a delightful place. Wish... More

Once again I was not let down by Tripadvisor and hit my target. I mostly prefer to stay at self catering aparts and this was the ideal spot. These newly converted old residential buildings offer the comfort of a house with the conviniance of a hotel. Highly recommend.

We stayed in the apartment linked to Santo Stefano B&B, which proved ideal for a week in Bologna. A short walk from the centre but surprisingly quiet, the apartment is clean, attractive and spacious with all facilities. Rather than eating out every day, this provided an opportunity to occasionally buy fresh pasta and other produce to eat ‘at home’. Even... More

At a loss to understand the negative comments. This accommodation is spotlessly clean. Super breakfast in a stylish room. Conveniently located less than fifteen minutes' from city centre. Both Giovanni and Mille gracious, helpful and hospitable. Grazie !

Several electrical outlets and good bathroom lights! Even slippers. But with little good travel info or maps of bologna, it was disconcerting that the nice woman who checked us in and served breakfast did not speak English. We could get no answers to questions or advice. I feel like I missed getting to know the city.
