We were booked at Albergo Reggio but they were overbooked, so they gave us a room at Hotel Posta instead. It is very nicely decorated, with an old world feel, complete with leave-your-key-at-the-front-desk. Well located--we walked everywhere we wanted to go. Very good soundproofing, good air conditioning.

Back to the Hotel Posta in Reggio Emilia and found the same great service, beautiful rooms and super helpful staff. Will continue to visit. Great location, service and accommodations. Each room has different decoration and all are beautiful. Excellent breakfast included in rate.

I have had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Posta two years in a row and will definitely be back. The rooms are beautifully finished, classically elegant. The close proximity to the centre of town makes Hotel Posta an excellent base for exploring Reggio Emilia. Wednesday nights in July in Reggio Emilia are amazing thanks to the music festival. Awesome... More

As others have mentioned, the location of the hotel couldn't be better. Having said that, if traveling by car, it does take some nerve to enter the pedestrianized area when you first arrive (the easiest way is via Via Dante Aligheri/Via Roma/Via Emilio San Pietro; follow the signs for "Posta"). Note that if you arrive on a Wednesday, you may... More

Had a great three night stay in Posta, back in June, with our two year old daughter. On arrival, we managed to park for free, just by the hotel entrance, ad were then greeted by very pleasant staff and told we had been upgraded to a suite. Once in the room, we discovered it was a two room, two bathroom... More

Booked a suite and ended up with the honeymoon suite, which is done in over-the-top floral patterns with a four poster bed with canopy on a platform and has 2 bathrooms (one with a tub, one with a shower). Getting to the hotel by car is a bit of an experience as it requires driving through the city roads that... More

We travel more than 200000 miles a year, returning to Italy as often as possible. Except for summer in Ravello/Amalfi Coast, Reggio Emilia is our favorite location in Italy. Between Parma and Modena, and Bologna, it has the best of all worlds-Parmesan cheese and balsamic vinegar and prosciutto, locally made. Charming location. Ask for the honeymoon suite (120). Two baths,... More

Great stay in Reggio Emilia and Hotel Posta is a great old style hotel but their internet is hard to manage and rooms facing the square are very noisy, particularly when the Friday market is setting up from 5am.
