This is an amazing place. We came, parked our car and borrow each our bike and with this great, peacefully base we experienced Ferrara. The location is close to the inner city and the cycle- which you borrow for free- is the best way to get around. The rooms in this place are perfect, clean and beautifully decorated. The breakfast...

A perfect BandB. Wonderful host in Euro, elegant and refined rooms, terrific breakfast, off street parking and great position in Ferrara. This is without doubt the best BandB we have used in Italy. It made our stay in Ferrara a truly memorable holiday experience.

A modern tastefully decorated interior in an old building. Our room was everything we had hoped for and Euro was friendly, helpful and willing to go the extra mile. He offered advice on restaurants and went through the ciity map with us pointing out places of interest. Breakfast was excellent with a good selection of food, much of which was... More

This B&B is a real gem. Great location. Beautiful, clean rooms. Fantastic breakfast. Car park on the premises. Free bikes. But above all, extremely friendly and helpful management. It gives me such great pleasure to write this glowing comment. Excellent. Don't think of anywhere else: this is the place to stay.

Perfect B&B, we stayed 7 nights with our daughter of one year and she received special treatment. There is a closed garden and private parking. You can go by foot to the city center. Would advise it to everyone.

This place is not the easiest to find but well worth it. I could not imagine anywhere better to stay while in Ferrara. There is excellent off street secure parking a lovely garden with a shaded area and cold home made lemonade available on a hot day. The B&B is modern and our room at the back very quiet. It... More

My wife and a 3-month baby have stayed in Alchimia B&B during our two-day visit to Ferrara and had a perfect stay. The Alchimia B&B is in fact a small boutique hotel in the centre of Ferrara situated in a 15-centrury renovated palace. The rooms are spacious, beautifully furbrished with wooden beams and spotlessly clean. The B&B has its own... More

I traveled to Ferrara, Italy in May and stayed again at Alchimia Bed and Breakfast (my third time). I really love the original artwork in each room, the incredible breakfasts, and the free bicycles for getting around this small town. Alchimia is located around the corner from the National Gallery of Art (Palazzo dei Diamanti), where I saw the Matisse... More

My family and I stayed at the Alchimia in Ferrara June 13, 2014 for 1 night and loved it. Both rooms were beautifully decorated and very clean. The owner and his family were very friendly. We had bikes available, if we wanted to used them. The courtyard was amazing, I did not want to leave. The made delicious cappuccino for... More
