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.

If you want to experience real, genuine Italian hospitality, this is the place. The people who run the Palazzo Valenti Gonzaga, the Linardi family - the Professor, Margaux, Francesca, plus the lovely Sara, are genuinely some of the nicest people you will ever meet. They couldn't have been friendlier and kinder. This is something you cannot put a price on.... More

This hotel is situated in an old palace turned museum. This we knew before arriving, so we expected something special. And indeed it was: The rooms were large apartments. Living rooms and bedrooms had richly decorated walls and roofs, and the bathroom had all the comfort that you could ask for, inclusive a jacuzzi. (The bed room of our friends... More

We were received by the owners, their tour of the Palazzo was delightful and the whole experience of sleeping in a museum was outstanding. You are sleeping surrounded by frescoes, sculptures, magnificent marble fonts in a totally Renaissance ambiance, but the bed and bathroom comforts are top and up to date. I recommend the experience and do borrow the bicycles... More

All the good things you read about this hotel are true. Felt like a lord living in the palace. Expensive,,but worth it. Pricy breakfast. The professore, his wife, daughter and some hired help run the place. You also get a free tour of the hotel in the morning. Keep some time to spend all the day inside the hotel looking... More

We stayed recently (Sept. 2014) at the Casa Museo Palazzo Valenti Gonzaga In Mantova : At a wonderful historic house, providing a special experience and all needed modern comfort. The guided tour with the story of the Valenti family and their house blended with the Italian history of a dramatic period. The warmth shown by the owners, Prof. Linardi and... More

Visiting and staying at the Palazzo Valenti Gonzaga is not just about spending a night in a hotel, but pretending to live an historical adventure. It’s challenging, because it implies an open mind to art, ancient traditions and the will to forget conventional schemes and embrace a Renaissance atmosphere. You’ll be driven through this dream by the original stucco and... More

This place merits at least a visit with a guided commentary tour by the owner, a retired Professor from Pavia University, who brings it all to life. Better still, stay in a historic frescoed room or suite, or else in the basement ultra - modern remodeled room located in historic tunnel made by Garibaldini before Italian reunification! Unique and unforgettable.... More

Firstly, the restoration of this hotel was clearly a labour of love and it shows. The property is unique and an experience. The owners were very warm and friendly hosts. Their daughter provided us with a tour of the property and its history. Our room was over the top with its decoration, The pictures on the hotel's website do not... More

We stayed in that wonderful place only for one night -to our great regret. Yet it has left a lasting trace in our memory. Accomodation as well as the menu was excellent. The tour around the Palace has brought us great pleasure as well as insight into important moments of Italian history which took place in this unique venue. Professor... More
