“Amazing B&B,defınıtely the best In Bologna.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

Santo Stefano B&B is one of the best of its kind among the dozens I stayed recently all over Europe. The rooms are large, tastefully decorated,bright, withfurniture and fixtures of top quality . The bed is amazingly comfortable and the feather pillows too. The bathroom is ultra modern with slick fixtures of the highest quality.
The living room is wonderful with excellent furniture. The breakfast is extensive with generous servings, excellent coffee,cakes, Parma ham and homemade jam.
With such a living room shared by only three rooms, you get a private luxury apartment with a dedicated maid in center city for an amazing bargain.
To top it all Gianni the owner is the nicest host you can ever get with tons of excellent tips on Bologna.

We stayed one night in the B&B and really enjoyed our stay. We walked all the way from the train station, which is a little far but not a bad trek at all and you see the sights along the way. We took the elevator (!) up and were promptly able to check in. The common space and decor is beautiful, clean and quiet. The bedrooms are also plenty spacious and the bathroom was very nice and clean. It's a short walk to the main square and you see so many sights along the way I'd almost hate to take a cab! Breakfast was plentiful and delicious and we each enjoyed a great cappuccino. We recommend it!

We are so glad we stayed here. The decoration is modern and the whole B & B is light and airy. The beds are large and comfortable. Our room overlooked the road but there was very little disturbance. Although the bathroom was small it was well appointed and there was plenty of hot water. Like other reviewers, we greatly appreciated breakfast and it was made all the better by sitting at the glass table on the Ghost chairs. Being British, we also liked the availability of tea when we arrived back "home" after a long day sightseeing.

Giovanni is an easy going and helpful host. His restaurant recommendations were spot on. The B & B is in a perfect location being just a pleasant stroll from most of the main sights. It is, however, about 30 minutes walk to the station so if you want to get a train to other amazing places, it is best to get a taxi to the station. Our day trips to Ravenna and Ferrara were outstanding. Do not miss Ravenna's mosaics. They are truly spectacular.

We could not imagine staying anywhere else in Bologna and highly recommend Santo Stefano to anyone wanting a modern and stylish base in Bologna.

Room Tip: I don't think there is much difference between the 3 rooms so you don't have to worry!

Delightful, well-run, reasonably priced, a perfect location near center-city, the university, and much else. And the hospitality can't be beat. Giovanni and his family make a great deal of effort to make this place pleasant and to accomodate your needs.
I would recommend it most highly.

Great location, amazing room and Giovanni was a terrific host. The breakfast complete with fresh squeezed blood orange juice and espresso was beyond expectation. Usually prefer apartments to hotels and bed/breakfasts, but I would stay here for any and every future visit to Bologna.

Santo Stefano was our first B&B that we stayed at on our trip throughout Italy and it was one of the best. The entire property was well appointed, updated and had excellent bathrooms. The owner was very nice and accomodating. The breakfast was wonderful - they even made "American" coffee for me. I would truly recommend this hotel on your next stay in Bologna.
