The B&B is confidently located near the centre of Ferrara on a quiet street. There is private parking in the courtyard at the back and the rooms are of a high standard, with original features and new fittings! Very clean! If you like cats you will love it here as the owner has 5 including one who tried to stow... More

Stunning, hidden in a street ten minutes walk from the centre, this converted palazzo is simply stunning. You enter the side gate to park the car in the rear courtyard. The lobby is old and decorated with the works of local painters. Despite its age, all of it is very modern. The rooms are high quality in the finishes. Top... More

This R & B was a really nice surprise from the very beginning: Euro, the host, offers a free shuttle to and from the Central Railway Station and guides you to the most attractive places - in terms of visits, restaurants, things to do - from Ferrara. The rooms were very neat & clean, the furniture and the whole conception... More

Euro and his family were perfect hosts, picking us up from the train station and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was great with homemade goodies and good coffee. Terrific ambiance and quiet. And Ferrara is the prettiest and charming town I've been to in Italy.

Hotel Alchimia is within the historic city but close to the border rather than the center. This is compensated by a private parking and a nice garden where a delicious breakfast is served. We were a little bit worried about diner after a tiring day but as we turned right and right again into via Palestro we found a number... More

This is a lovely place to stay. The owner Euro made us very welcome - giving us advice on where to go and eat. The bedroom was lovely - lots of space and very quiet. Private car park and only 10 minutes to the centre of the town. Breakfast in the garden room was delicious - I would come back... More

We had a lovely weekend in Ferrara, and so appreciated the hospitality of Euro and his family at Alchimia! They gave us wonderful advice on what to do in town and where to eat, the breakfast was lovely, and they were extremely helpful in getting us to and from the train station. The rooms were extremely comfortable and beautifully decorated,... More

Euro....he's our hero! As owner/manager of the Alchimia, Euro is the perfect host. My wife, son and I stayed for only one night at the end of January and we all felt that while the room was lovely, the location excellent, the free parking convenient.....it was Euro's overwhelming hospitality that made this place so special. Thank you, Euro!

This B and B is in a central location and the rooms are modern and well equipped, but by far the best thing about it is the owners. They make every effort to make your stay comfortable and personal, from a bottle of wine and glasses to celebrate New Year in the piazza to making sure to wish us a... More
