My husband and I stayed here for four nights while visiting Ferrara. Two nights were booked on a business trip but we decided to stay an additional two on our own. The hotel was clean and the staff were very helpful. The location was perfect! We would go back again but wish that they would improve the breakfast. We found... More

Dear Ms. Alicia, thank you for your kind words of appreciation for our home. We sensitize the food and beverage department, so breakfast can satisfy all palates. Thanks again and come back to visit us as soon as possible, perhaps in Spring, when the Palazzo dei Diamanti host the exhibition dedicated to Picasso and Gaudi .... Best Regards. Antonio Meloni...

nice located hotel - charming restaurant - decent but no luxury breakfast - good local Italian beers at the bar Room was single bad and small but just to sleep this was pretty ok. Walls are very thin and don't isolate the noise from other rooms - shower door wasn't closing perfectly ... Price/quality for me was ok!

We stayed in this hotel in early October during a warm but far from record heat wave. The air conditioning had been turned off, which combined with poor ventilation and a lack of screens on the windows made the room unbearably hot (28C at 3am with the window open) and infested with mosquitos. Honestly this made for probably the single... More

The hotel is adjacent to the castle and close to the pedestrian area in the center of Ferrara. However, there are quite a lot of other hotels in this area so it's not unique in that sense. If you're with a car you'd have to park in the street close by, while paying attention you're parking in a place that... More

Fantastic place to stay, location excellent, room very clean (junior suite), service fab - couldn't have chosen a better hotel. We are here now and are very pleased with our choice. Would definitely come back and have no hesitation in recommending to others. Whilst we cannot comment on the other rooms, our junior suite is very comfortable. The bathroom has... More

This hotel comes with few surprises, which is meant in a good way. The rooms are standard, clean, and functional. My room faced the castle, was a bit tight, but more than adequate for a business trip. With double pane windows and a location well off the main drag, i was able to sleep well (bed was stiff). The Wifi... More

I just checked out from hotel Ferrara after a 12 night stay. The front desk was most helpful and attentive, providing me with the largest of their single rooms since I was there for 12 nights. The A/C worked well, and I was not disturbed by the loud music festival going on just outside. The wi-fi was slow, but it... More

Hotel is small and located in the city centre. This is really the best location in Ferrara. You can see the castle from the Windows ;). Room was clean, rather small, the bathroom was modern, clean, with shower. Breakfast OK, nothing special. Price reasonable.

Location! Location! Location! Great hotel in a fantastic location. Just outside our window was a fabulous castle - The Castello Estense or castello di San Michele (‘St. Michael's castle’). It's incredible they actually have a moated medieval castle in the center of Ferrara.. We actually had a great view from our hotel room. Great amenities in the room and bathroom.... More
