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

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

We had a great 3 night stay at B&B Santo Stefano. The apartment is beautifully appointed and in a convenient location, a short walk to most of the major sites. Giovanni is a wonderful host. 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

We chose santo stefano for our 2 night stay for its spotless "boutique" accommodation and great value for money. Giovanni was extremely helpful with booking restaurants and airport taxi. Breakfast was delicious, fresh fruit, croissants , cheeses, prosciutto and the best apricot preserve. The breakfast table was adorned with Alessi accessories and delightful china. A 10 minute walk into the... More
