We received an upgraded room and it was beautiful! The room was clean and very comfortable: king-sized bed with a cozy comforter; small eating table and chairs; refrigerator; separate closet area; and, a nice bathroom with a wonderful rain head shower. Breakfast was included with the stay and took place each morning in the rooftop sun room with views of... More

Polignano is a great place to spend a couple of days. Our room, a superior one was large & very comfortable. Shower didn't drain properly and the stairs were very steep but I'm guessing this is inevitable when you stay in the old quarter.Our breakfast at the B&B was a decent one, although we left early the last morning, so...

We chose Santo Stefano on account of its excellent reviews, in most respects it lived up to expectations with the exception of Breakfast which is taken on the lovely roof terrace. We stayed 5 nights and on at least two of the mornings breakfast was chaotic, invariably items had run out and as the B&B which has nine rooms only... More

An excellent B&B in the heart of the old city of Polignano. Ideal location. Monica the owner and Maria L were so helpful and made us feel very welcome. The name of our room was Azzura which was up one flight of stairs. Large room, nicely appointed. Perfect home for two days. Breakfast on the terrace with a beautiful view.... More

We stayed here because of a TripAdvisor review and were not disappointed. Monica is wonderful, had us picked up from the parking area in a bike-rickshaw. Our room was incredible, what views!! Great location, wonderful breakfast, great room, and a gracious hostess. A true winner!!!

Spotlessly clean room in an amazing central location walking distance from all you need to see in Polignano. Service was top class, we arrived in the middle of a festival and could not drive into the city they helped us find parking and sent a bike rickshaw to pick us up and drop us back to the car when leaving....

Set very close to the main square in one of the many side streets. Room was a good size & very clean. Nice breakfast on the rooftop with fresh produce and great views. Excellent customer service, helping with retrival of a parcel of clothing from another hotel.

What a wonderful little B and B! Perfectly nestled in a small enclave in the old town, and not too difficult to find, this was a perfect base for us to explore Polignano and to make a day trip to nearby Alborobello. While the rooms may be small, they are spotlessly clean, well kept and modern, with all amenities (although... More

We stayed at Santo Stefano for 4 nights. Our room was quite small with an equally small bath. Everything was very clean and modern. We had a private balcony with access to the roof top balcony. Breakfast was on this roof top deck. It was fine. Cereals, fruit, ham, cheese and pastry. No communal rooms were available. You couldn't make... More

Within the walls of the old town centre, with all its atmospheric beauty, this property really takes you into the heart of this world. It is beautiful yet simple whilst having everything you could need.
