Before I started to write the review I went through other reviews, that I normally do not do. The reason for that was that I have had very mixed feelings. I've stayed 2 nights. The first one was in a small room, almost on corridor, that whole night I was hearing what's going on in one of another room as... More

A great little boutique hotel in a great location close to Castle Estense. Spacious rooms and good modern bathrooms. Great spaces to sit and have a drink or a coffee. Breakfast has lots of choices including the ability to make toast. Attentive staff and the free bike hire is fantastic. Only downside the beds were a little hard.

Good location (adjacent to the castle) but if you're there with a car, note that there's no parking in the hotel, so you need to find a spot on the streets surrounding the hotel, which means a few minutes walking at least. The reception staff wasn't very willing to help in changing a room upon arrival. Breakfast was good. Overall,... More

Most of the money has been spent on the lobby as the rooms themselves were very small and basic. Found the staff very unhelpful, we were there for a wedding and needed an iron, the staff simply said it is not possible and were very dismissive.

Dear Mr. .. unfortunately (for you), I was at the reception at time. You have been correctly informed that Italian law does not allow hotel guests to bring the iron into the room. I called, in your presence, the housekeeper who came into your room and took your dress (very very wrinkled )and has perfectly ironed. Just finished, reported the... More

We recently had a one night stay here, and looked forward to be in a very central well rated hotel. On arrival we were treated with arrogance/indifference by the man at reception. Later we tried to have the air con attended to as it was not working.Fan worked but room did not cool down at all. The young woman who... More

Dear Sir, his review is simply unfair. Unfortunately we have no weapons to defend ourselves from those who, in good or bad faith, claim to have the truth in his pocket. Fortunately, cases like yours, are exceptions and the vast majority of our guests think in a completely different way. We want to focus our attention to them. Antonio Meloni... More

The rooms were very modern and clean, even a note under the bed saying it had been cleaned there too ! The restaurant connected to the hotel "A Big Night" was... More

Clean, comfortable and close to everything Ferrara has to offer. I highly enjoyed my stay at this hotel in this charming city. My upper floor room was cozy and had a nice little balcony overlooking the castle on the other side of the courtyard (and the gelato shop was only a few steps away, too! Yummmmm). Honestly, I would be... More

Great location, truly can't be better; right in the middle of the town. There has been put alot of thought in the rooms, lots technical gadgets were implemented. It is a limited service Hotel. The breakfast-buffet might be okay for Italian standards, the Prima Donna during breakfast was more interested in answering her text messages. Afterall, one has to admit,... More
