Although I am in Italy every year, this was only my second visit to Ferrara--and to the delightful Locanda Borgonuovo. I have never met with kinder or more helpful innkeepers, whose lifelong interests in both the art and cuisine of Ferrara make impeccable guides to the city. We stayed three nigjts in the large room that has a kitchenette we... More

Located in an ancient house (walls are 60 cm!), this authentic B&B of which the owners serve delightful homecooked breakfasts and will go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable in every possible way. Bikes are on offer, and they... More

Located in a beautiful old house (built in 1639) in central Ferrara, this is a very welcoming B&B. The rooms are comfortable & clean, while the dining area is furnished with gorgeous antiques, many of which also date from the seventeenth century. The walls are lined with an impressive array of artworks. What a stunning room! We are vegans, so... More

We arrived around 12:30, but our room was already available. The Locanda is beautifully decorated with antique furniture, yet the rooms are very comfortable with a nice bathroom and good Wireless internet. The hosts made us feel very welcome, gave us tips on where to go for food and sightseeing, including a map of this wonderful city, cycling capital of... More

We have stayed here many times and it never disappoints us. Central, so that you can walk to all the main sights within minutes, clean & comfortable, lovely breakfasts, and run by the Orlandini family who are so kind and helpful and who know everbody in & everything about this region. We long to return. There is so much to... More

An extraordinary satisfying and fulfilling visit to Ferrara at the wonderfull Locanda Borgonuovo B&B. Highly recommend. Customer service, professionalism and location outstanding. This family run B&B is a museum in itself. Paolo's surrounding mother and father are the most gracious hosts and make every effort to ensure the success and satisfaction of their customers. We resided in the large 2... More

My husband and I spent a long weekend in Ferrara and Ravenna recently and had the good fortune of booking 2 nights at this wonderful place. The location is fantastic being right in the historical centre making everything just a short walk away. The facilities available make it seem like a hotel but the personalised hospitality extended by the owners... More

I spent four nights in Ferrara visiting a friend and she found this local B&B for me. It really is fantastic! It's right in the centre of town, my room was beautiful and the owners could not have been more friendly or helpful. They really made me feel welcome. I would love to return some day and I'll definitely book... More

Great discovery in the heart of beautiful Ferrara. Our hostess, Ms Orlandini, is a wonderful, cultured and helpful lady - follow her tips for recommended restaurants and places of interest. Would return given the opportunity.
