Small scale and family run and yet professional and easy to work with. This Hotel/Museum is the kind of experience that travelers come to Italy for. Run by Professor Alfonso Linardi and family their passion for Mantova, the museum, and the history of Italy are contagious. This is a true labor of love.. Don't miss it. Tips: The room are... More

If you have the opportunity to stay in this unique hotel, do not miss it! We are glad to have chosen this place as a one night stop during our Italian trip. The staff are really great, so friendly and helpful, and the rooms are beautiful. We stayed in the appartment with jacuzzi and amazing frescos on the ceiling. Highly... More

Meet a remarkably welcoming Italian family who decided to preserve a historic building, spend a night or more in the "piano nobile" (elegant area) of this building, enjoy breakfast featuring an array of pastries made by one daughter among the treasures of the house, and be sure to take the tour of the building with the other daughter to learn...

First let me say, I have stayed all over the world in places ranging from the Gritti Palace to the Ritz to the Danelli to Hotel Bora Bora. This Casa Museo Palazzo or Museum Palace in Mantua, Italy is without question THE most amazing place I have been allowed (yes, allowed!) to stay. If you have a passion for Italy... More

An interesting place to stay - very memorable. The family who run the hotel are charming and could not do enough for us during our stay. We would recommend that you stay in the 2 bedrooms on the principal floor.

When you stay at this beautiful hotel, you are at the same time visiting a significant historic site and a lovely small museum. The owners and staff could not be more friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent, and it was served in a beautiful room with a beautiful view. The location is excellent, and we feel lucky to have... More

A unique experience in Mantova. Stay overnight in an old restored palazzo. The main attraction of this place is the restored upper floor with frescoes and statues. Rooms in basement are more plain even if much more modern. Very personal and attentive reception - well you are visiting the home of the host family. simply excellent. Unfortunately no parking is...

This B&B lives up to every single expectation raised by reading the reviews on Tripadvisor or its website. You do not sleep in a B&B adjacent to a museum, no you actually sleep IN the museum. The palazzo has been beautifully renovated (during a period of 22 (!) years), with the greatest respect for the breathtaking frescoes on the ceilings... More

Professor Rocco Linardi, Mrs. Linarda and the Linardi family (two daughters) provided extraordinary service. We had the opportunity to reside in the Executive Suite, Chapel of the Cardinal ,and it exceeded all standards. We resided in the Chapel of the Cardinal for four evenings. The Linardi's met us upon arrival, assisted us with moving in our luggage, and established a... More

This place seemed (from their website), like it'd be a dream hotel. It was not. Firstly, the hotelier was outrageously self-promoting and shameless. He insisted on taking us on the grand tour of his "museum", and then tried to strong-arm us into making an additional donation to the cause... "just 8 euros, please" - which in essence was just an...

Dear illustrious and unknown « BIGTOEISBLUE » (nickname of fantasy that hides the true identity), according to documents and bookings in the database of the Management of Casa Museo Palazzo Valenti Gonzaga, there are no guests of New York City who booked the Executive Suite in January, February and March 2014.
