Absolutely wonderful B&B just across the street from Osteria Francescana, so you can easily crawl back after your 12 course tasting menu with wine pairing and roll directly into the very comfortable bed, which is what we did.
What can we say? It's like home away from home. The location on the top floor (yes, there is an elevator/lift) of a pretty old building in the centre of Modena. The decor is great. The little touches, like a Nespresso machine with sufficient ristretto capsules to keep you going. And of course the owner, Francesca, who gave us some great advice on where to dine and lunch on the days that we weren't indulging ourselves in Massimo Bottura's culinary delights. Modena is a beautiful, laid-back city and Stella 21 is the best place to to use as your base while you're there. Recommended!
First two nights were spent in a smaller perfect B&B , last two nights were spent in this larger perfect B&B.
Francesca was adorable on the phone - I just felt this would be ok.
We'd love to buy her loft / her home.
A touch of familiarity is evident because it's her home !
Spacious, lots of light... perfect location and a great place for a weekend escape or longer periods of time.
Not a lot to say other then ... book it... it's worth it. You'll have no regrets !!!
We will be back !!!!!!
And thank you for your kindness and assistance.
P.S. all the photos just don't do it justice- you'll love it .
We stayed here for 1 night while dining at Osteria Francescana. We wished we could have stayed longer! The apartment is beautiful and spacious, with lots of light and gorgeously decorated. The owner, Francesca, was very welcoming and and helpful.
If you are dining at Osteria Francescana this is the perfect accomodation as it is directly across the street but a lovely place to stay in its own right.
This wonderful apartment has been 'home' to me for 4 nights and I have been very happy here. Francesca, the owner, is charming, welcoming and has put at the disposal of her guests a beautiful and very spacious apartment which is decorated with wonderful objects d'art - some of them her own. The huge wooden beans add great charm to the place. It is simply magnificent. Services are perfect and we were thrilled to have found this tranquil haven in the middle of Modena. To the lady who calls to make sure all is in order each day we say a big thank you.
Stella 21 B & B is a very attractive apartment in this impressive and stylish city. Francesca is really charming and goes to some trouble for her guests, even supplying fresh flowers. There was a generous supply of breakfast items and other quality edibles. The apartment is spacious with a relaxed and welcoming feel heightened by the many artworks and extensive shelving for books. It had great charm and character with its exposed beams. There is an additional upstairs room with lovely rooftop views. While there are cafes and restaurants nearby the street and neighbourhood are quiet. It is very close to the main square. We enjoyed the six days we spent here and would highly recommend it.
