When my children and I arrived at this gorgeous hotel, we were warmly greeting by two wonderful ladies. We had booked the secret lodge, but we were given a beautiful surprise (a stunning suite with two bedrooms - one that had been used by the 'Cardinal' when he stayed at the Palazzo). There was so much thought and care put... More

Professor Linardi and his family are warm and inviting hosts. If you're visiting Mantua, don't miss this unique opportunity to stay in a true Italian palace. Their recommendations for restaurants and activities were flawless. Mantua is well worth a visit!

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.

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...

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...
