Locanda Borgonuova was a perfect home-base to enjoy Ferrara - easily accessible, convenient central location, and friendly helpful Orlandini mother and son to welcome us, help us settle in, and offer good recommendations of restaurants and sights. Historic building, comfortable well-appointed room, personally-served breakfast, attractive garden to sit in - all felt most pleasant. Hotel bicycles made for free, easy... More

Imagine yourself in another century and rent a room there. ...with some updates. Our bedroom was large as was the bathroom and behind some doors there was a mini kitchen with a mini bar. There was a small table with two chairs next to a window facing a medieval cobblestone streets. The breakfast was very fresh and home made. We... More

Ferrara is a charming, old city with the oldest section still surround by a brick wall from the 13th Century... Within the old city and located close to everything, you will find the wonderful Locanda Borgonuovo Bed and Breakfast. It is the oldest B and B in Italy and well worth the stay. The innkeeper, Filippo, welcomed us with an... More

spent only 1 night here with family of 4- but everything was excellent. The owners were super nice at check in and at breakfast. Parking was easy and got to use their free bicycles for a morning tour of the city. Could easily set up here for more than 1 night and explore the whole area. Ferrara was one of... More

Ferrara is the perfect "real town" getaway for those on the well-trod tourist path between Florence and Venice, and this B & B is a comfortable, clean, and extremely welcoming home base. As others have mentioned, the family that owns the Locanda Borgonuova loves their jewel of a small city, and they do everything they can to make sure you... More

This B and B is very central and very elegant and yet also homely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, in a large spotlessly clean room with a large bathroom and a small fold away kitchen. Everything you need. The breakfast was simply superb with home- made cake and jams and cheeses and cold meat too. Although in the centre of... More

Although this was our first visit to Ferrara, during our four-day stay in this wonderful, centrally-located B&B, the owners of Locanda Borgonuova made us feel like we were returning home after a long absence. We stayed in the main house in a large room with a separate kitchenette, very comfortable king-size bed, large bathroom, and armoire which was more than... More

Locanda Borgonuovo is a beautiful B&B with a wonderful location near the Castello in the historic center of Ferrara. The owners are extremely welcoming and helpful, going above and beyond to assist their past and present guests. They even provide bicycles for transportation around the quaint city streets. I would not want to stay anywhere else in Ferrara.

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.
