Just perfect hospitality, excellent location, spacious apartment, clean, cozy, beautiful classic Italian deco and a general feeling that you are staying at your dear friend's. Breakfast exceeds the usual Italian sugar-only meal. Loooooved Torta di Ferrara with strawberries :) The city and its surroundings are made for long bike rides, which you can also get in this B&B. We are... More

Great place with an authentic sense of Italy!The owners Ruggero and his wife are very kind, dedicated and always there in need of help. Purity is on a perfect level. Bicycles are free and one of the best cupcakes for breakfast are served there :)

This wasn't our first choice of places to stay in Ferrara, but I'm so glad we ended up here. This B&B is just amazing. The we had a two room suite as we were traveling with our son. The beds were oh so comfortable and there were not one but two air-conditioners that we cherished after two weeks of 95F... More

Nice building, full of character, just a couple of blocks away from ferrara main monuments... The owners are very kind and dedicated. I will sure choose this solution again if I'll ever come back to this astounding city

Our stay in this guest house was perfect! After wandering around the beautiful historic town of Ferrara there was nothing better than walking back to this gorgeous establishment, itself steeped in history. Furnished in beautifully restored genuine nineteenth century furniture, the spotless rooms are spacious, comfortable, elegant and simply pull you in so you feel like you're right at home.... More

I wish that Trip Advisor permitted a 6-Star rating, because this hotel merits it. In several years of Italian travel, we haven't stayed in more comfortable, well-maintained and well-appointed rooms. The real reason to park your luggage here, however, is the owner. Ruggiero, quite simply, is one of the most engaging people we ever have met. His English is near-perfect,... More

Decided to head 'off the beaten path' and spend a couple of days in Ferarra as a kickoff for our weeklong Italy tour.....Booked Piazza Nova Guest House based on TripAdvisor reviews.....The Guest House and hosts exceeded all of our expectations.....Ruggiero was a great host, recommended places to go (and stay away from) and met us on our arrival. We stayed... More

We spent two nights here on our way from Napoli to Venice. Ruggerio was wonderful and his parents were gracious and very helpful. Our room was spotless, the breakfast was superb, and we were extremely comfortable. It is easy to get from the train station to the guest house and Ferrara doesn't require a car. I hope to return to... More

The guest house is absolutley amazing and the staff is even better. The staff is very friendly and makes you feel like you are home. Super clean, very homely apartments that walking distance to lots of restaurants, train station, and lots of sights and wonderful Ferrara. You are making a mistake if you go to Ferrara and stay anywhere else.

We stayed here based on the reviews on Trip Advisor, and so glad we chose this compared to a hotel. This has to be one of the best B&B/self catering places we have ever stayed. The owners (and their parents) are fantastic hosts and the breakfasts are great. They help out whenever needed (but are never intrusive), and even make... More
