Chosen by an Italian family member for a reunion, he told us that Ferrara is a jewel and the hotel too. He wasn't wrong on both counts! You need at least 3 days in the culturally rich UNESCO heritage city of Ferrara to do it justice (we were only there for 2 and had family commitments) and it is so... More

To visit the beautiful, culturally rich UNESCO city of Ferrara, the Hotel De Prati is an excellent choice for multiple reasons: there is no hotel better located for easy access to all the places of interest and there are few city hotels with such a dedicated staff of owners. Our comfort, our needs were paramount to the staff. Everyone was... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel de Prati for 2 nights in May. The hotel is a bit far from the train station (the cab ride wasn't too expensive) but, once you're at the hotel, everything is close at hand. We were lucky enough to be in Ferrara during one of their festivals and the parade of... More

We found the hotel staff highly professional, helpful, accessible, and friendly. The breakfast was excellent, and the room and facilities were perfect. The hotel is situated close to the many and varied places of interest, great restaurants, cafes, music venues, etc but we also found it very quiet (no sleep disturbances).

We spent three nights at the Hotel di Prati in Ferrara. It's a very nice hotel and very well run by the family staff. The room was comfortable, the lift helpful (though very small), the location excellent. We enjoyed the breakfasts, and it was easy to converse with other travelers in the small breakfast room. They go out of their... More

I stayed in this Ferrara hotel for two nights in mid-October. Within walking distance of several major attractions, it was clean and comfortable with very friendly owners and a lovely breakfast. I especially enjoyed the art-filled walls and shutter-covered windows which retained privacy while offering fresh air.

Nice hotel very close to the castle and other landmarks. Good price/quality ratio. Owners provided good dining recommendations and assisted with parking. Breakfast buffet was slightly above average for the hotel category, and included an excellent, home-made, honey based cake. Room size was perfect, and communal parts well decorated. Acoustic insulation is not perfect but noise from other rooms did... More

We planned a short three day trip to Ferrrara - although we have travelled fairly widely in Italy, the city had escaped us. Very convenient - 40 minutes from Bologna airport by motorway. And a lovely city for a short stay - with some excellent eating. We had seen some positive references to the Hotel de Prati and so reserved... More
