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

We stayed at Alchimia for eight nights, attended a conference, and made day trips to other cities in Northern Italy. The stay at Alchimia was very comfortable and made this trip really special! The place is a nice blend of charming old exterior and clean and contemporary rooms that are tastefully decorated. The breakfast included several pastries, freshly baked bread,... More

In a travel through Italy, comming from Florence and going to Venice, we decided to stop in Ferrara. What a great decision! Very beautiful city, with medieval and renaissance parts, surrounded with a nice wall in which you can ride a bike on a track over it! And even better was the welcoming we had at Alchimia! The owner, Euro,... More

Stayed for three nights in this tastefully designed house. Old, elegant building with a pleasing blend of modern and old interiors. On a quiet street but right in the middle . With the room and delicious breakfast also came the loan of well looked after bikes which you enables you to get everywhere within the walls so easily and safely.... More

Lovely young couple runs this perfectly located b/b. We could not have asked for more! Great bedroom, bath, garden, breakfast, free bikes (most take a ride on the city wall), free parking, close to all sites... Need I say more?
