Why ServoWeb Managing Company chose Santo Stefano
The house location is quiet and safe, extremely central, ideal for exploring Bologna as a whole. A cozy hideaway, differently from many apartments in the area is light-and-bright and very airy.

Lovely apartment, exactly as description. Hosts were quick with responces and very helpful.
Lovely place, quiet, clean and centrally located
We had a lovely week in this apartment in Bologna. Every possible comfort was provided and everything was in perfect working order, An amazing apartment with its charming terrace, in the perfect central yet very quiet location! And of course lovely hosts who made us feel very much at home. We hope to stay here again.
Excellent accommodation in central Bologna
My wife and I rented this apartment for month. It is nicely appointed and located in a pleasant neighborhood of central Bologna. The pictures accurately describe the apartment's furnishings and ambience. The apartment is spacious by European standards and very comfortable for two people. The kitchen is small but well-equipped. All of the appliances were in working order. I found the apartment to be very quiet and rarely heard the neighbors.
For my tastes, the apartment is in one of the best neighborhoods of Bologna. Piazza Maggiore is 10-15 minutes away by foot while the train station can be reached in 20 minutes by bus. The neighborhood has one of the best bar/bakeries in the city (Regina dei Quadri), a fine wine shop (Enoteca alla Porta), really good delicatessen and one of the best gelaterias in Bologna (La Sorbetteria Castiglione).
Booking the apartment was very easy. The manager of the booking service and the owner were very responsible and courteous.
One slight drawback of the apartment is that only one set of keys is available. If multiple people are staying in the apartment with different schedules, it can take some planning to figure the logistics of who has the keys. Other than this, I highly recommend this apartment.
Thank you so much. In order for our guests not to have troubles with only one set of keys we give each of them a mailbox key. If the last person leaving the apartment drops the key set in the mailbox for the next person to return to the apartment the problem is easily solved. Ciao!
Ideal location, apartment
The rental was ideal for me and my husband. We had plenty of room in this very well stocked apartment and we were pleasantly surprised to have a clothes washer and dryer. The terrace provided a wonderful spot for our evening wine & cheese with pleasant view over the enchanting garden. We couldn't have asked for more! The location is perfect - a close walk to monuments, restaurants, grocery store and shops. We loved the bikes that we rented at one of the shops nearby so we could tour the town and ride to the Ducati factory. Plus, great communication with the manager before and during our stay. This is a great place to stay in a wonderful city! We highly recommend it.
Very good apartment, conveniently located
My wife and I enjoyed very much staying in the apartment for 4 days. It is quite spacious and comfortable. We ate 2 dinners in and were pleased with the kitchen facilities. And access to both a washer and dryer is indeed a plus. The location is about a 10 - 15 minute walk from the center of Bologna. There is a fantastic gelateria just around the corner. And it is just a 3 minute walk to the bus stop on the circular road surrounding the old part of the city, from where one can catch a bus in either direction (#32 or #33) that goes to the train station in about 15 minutes. The only reason I did not give a 5 star rating is that the furnishings are utilitarian rather than luxurious. But for the price it was very good value, and we would not hesitate to recommend it to other couples (I personally think it would be a bit tight to have more than 2 people).
My husband and I spent two fabulous weeks in Bologna in May, and Casa Arienti exceeded our expectations in terms of location, comfort and ambience. After a morning of sightseeing, we loved coming home for lunch on our balcony overlooking the two gardens below--one with pink roses and the other with yellow roses. If we felt like staying in for dinner, we could get a take-away pizza and salad from Elena a few doors down the street or from O Solo Mio around the corner on Castiglione. We usually chose, though, to try one or another of the many outstanding trattorias within a 5 or 10 minute walk from the apartment, ending up all too often at La Sorbetteria Castiglione for a gelato or sorbet for dessert. We loved Bologna's new history museum on Castiglione, the weekend festas in Giardini Margherita, the porticos and churches, the Welcome Bologna tourist information centre in Piazza Maggiore and its daily walking tour of the historic centre, the San Luca Express to visit the Sanctuary of San Luca, etc. etc. We also took advantage of the excellent train connections for day trips to Ferrara (loved the castle) and to Ravenna for the mosaics. On our next visit, we could do day trips to Modena, Parma and Florence perhaps. I'm already looking forward to returning to Bologna and Casa Arienti. Grazie mille.
Dear Mary - Thanks for such a nice review. We love hearing from our guests knowing that they enjoyed their stay with us. The location of our apartment makes it a winner and luckily the area is getting more and more attractive with small restaurants, pubs and - our favourite sin - gelaterias! Come back soon! Vittorio
Gourmet shops, grocery stores and markets in the vicinity, fashion stores, flea market, all the best restaurants, ice cream parlours. We are centrally located, so everything is at hand. The area is central yet very quiet. The best ice cream parlour in Bologna is only 100 mts. Giardini Margherita park: 400 mts., with playground for children. The train station is easily reachable by city bus - only 15 minutes.
