Casa Isolani, period residences Santo Stefano
Casa Isolani, charming bed and breakfast at Palazzo Isolani: to sleep in beauty. In the historic centre of Bologna, a few steps away from the two Towers and from Piazza Maggiore, close to the medieval complex of the Seven Churches, that are just a few yards away. The rooms are on the top floor of the enchanting 18th-century Palazzo Isolani. Having reached your floor by using the lift, a short flight of stairs leads to the rooms. Belonging to one of Bologna’s oldest families, the palace is part of history. Pope Paul V and Hasekura, Japanese ambassador in the seventeenth century, still venerated throughout Japan, protect the palace by means of their portraits. The conductor Claudio Abbado fell in love with the house instantly, and lived there for more than ten years.
Santo Stefano room
Two separate sleeping areas, with the possibility of a third bed, offers an enchanting view of Piazza Santo Stefano. Shower with panoramic view of the square. It is reached by going through the shared living room with terrace. The main bedroom has the possibility of two single beds (which can be joined as a double) with view of Piazza Santo Stefano. The second sleeping area with a third bed, is in a pretty loft overlooking a shared terrace. The triangular-shaped square of Santo Stefano street, which can be admired from the window and from the bathroom, is one of the most characteristic views of Bologna.
A curiosity: the name Piazza Santo Stefano does not appear on the city street map, although it is commonly used by the people of Bologna.
