This is a nice hotel in Modena, which is one of the most beautiful small towns in Italy and the hometown of Enzo Ferrari. I spent 2 nights here and the staff made a very memorable impression on us. They were all very professional and polite and made us feel very welcome. Our room was nice and clean and it... More

Restaurant is not the very best one but an ok interior. food, on the other hand, was excellent. Rooms are beautiful and brand new looking. Walls may not be that thick, so if cops or emergency run by with sound on, you'll probably hear them as they were next door...

All in all, a good choice. Clean, hospitable and great staff. Our only complaint is that there was no wifi in the rooms or the breakfast room. We could only get connection in the lobby. The front desk staff were extremely helpful and had a great sense of humour. Location was a bit of a ways from the centre but... More

The rooms would need some renovation but the overall experience was very good. Staff are very professional and helpufull, located near down town make it really easy to walk around and if it is raining the bus stop is just across the street. Negative side is that the A/C is kept off most of the time in the rooms, it... More

Simple clean hotel, free parking garage, OK restaurant for Pizza etc. 15 minutes walk to city center using the quiet road behind the hotel. Friendly staff, that did their out most to understand our very limited Italian. Better than average breakfast buffet for Italian hotels in this class.

Not glamorous, and 20 minutes walk from the centre of town, but good value in an expensive town, clean and comfortable.

Donatello isn't fashionable by any standard - the whole interior feels to have been the same from 70s/early 80s - but apart from that, the hotel provides a completely ok stay at a very affordable price. The location is good, it takes about 10 mins by walking to the city centre and the staff is friendly as well. So I... More

Although this hotel had all the amenities of a 3* hotel it looked like it had not been decorated for 100 years! The rooms smelled of smoke and was above a possibly disused mens club. Having said this, the price was very cheap and for one night it was ok, although if we had planned to stay for any longer... More

I have travelled to quite a few places in my time but, the first time that the people in charge of the hotel acted like friends and could not do more for you. 2k.m. from centre of town but bus stop near-by and just 1euro into town. Bar/cafe just up the road called Big Ben, made you most welcome and... More

We needed accommodation for five nights whilst escorting our daughter to Modena to help settle her into her first week at University on an Erasmus exchange. We looked at lots of hotels in and around Modena and picked the hotel Donatello for its location, its sits quite near to the motorway taking you to the airports Parma or Bologna, and... More
