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

I have nothing but the highest praise for Alchimia, which is conveniently located just outside the no-traffic zone and a few minutes walk to the city center. The warm reception by owner Euro Caselli was most welcome; he provided all we needed to know about moving around town and suggested a superb reasonably priced restaurant. Our room was quiet, very...

Our stop in Ferrara was made so special by staying at the lovely, even hip and modern Alchimia B&B located in a building from the 1400s just a few minutes walk from the historic center. The owner was extremely helpful with restaurant and sightseeing recommendations and meeting every other need we had. Breakfast was superb - with everything one could... More

The heading here has to say it all. This excellent value B&B at €120 was truly exceptional and so far the best place we have stayed at during our week tour of the region. You are greeted at the station (you need to arrange this in advance) by the patron Euro and his mother and taken back in their cars.... More

My husband, myself and a friend stayed at the Alchimia for 2 nights last week and we all agree completely with the other positive comments posted. We were made to feel very welcome, our rooms were spotlessly clean and spacious and the buffet breakfast was full of tempting things, many of which were home made. We'd have no hesitation in...

My husband and I stayed at Alchimia R&B for two nights in early September, and could not agree more with the excellent comments posted by others who have stayed there. The place is immaculate, stylish, great location, wonderful breakfast, quiet at night, free parking, but most of all, owned and run by Euro. He can't do enough for you to... More
