“The best in Ferrara”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Well I haven't stayed anywhere else in Ferrara but I can't imagine that there could be a better choice than the Hotel Annunziata. It's perfectly situated in the Castle Square (pedestrian) and they have arranged cheap street car-parking nearby. The staff are very welcoming, the decor is modern, the facilities are excellent and the prices are very reasonable. The breakfasts were wonderful. Choose this one without hesitation.

Room Tip: Superior Room was quite large and very good value.

Annunziata in the center of Ferrara is a very nice and friendly hotel with a great breakfast. We where there with our motorbike and the friendly owner organized in no-time a perfect parking place. If you want you can rent bikes for free at the hotel. In summer it can be very hot in Ferrara but the hotel has airco. Wij kunnen dit hotel aan iedereen aan bevelen maar vooraf boeken is noodzakelijk.

Great hotel. Great rooms.Great location. Great breakfast.
Very charming town with lots to see. Not a bit touristy. Which is why we chose to come here. Reminds me is a baby Rome. I will definitely come back one day!
Our teenage son and his friend had a great time biking all I've Ferrara.

Dera Mrs Criswell, thank you so much for taking time to express your opinion regarding your stay at Annunziata Hotel. We were really happy reading that you enjoyed your stay. It is great for us that you compared Ferrara as a little Rome, in fact our nice city would deserve a bit of more attention because it's really interesting. See you soon in Ferrara.

The Hotel Annunziata is everything you could want in a hotel: stylish and generous rooms, with really comfortable beds and fine amenities, lovely public spaces where one can enjoy a drink, and an excellent breakfast - all this in an unbeatable location in the historic center of town and at a price that is most generous to its guests. I booked this hotel for a group of friends and everyone loved it.
Sound proofing is perfect, in case there are events scheduled on the piazza (they end not too late). The staff is friendly and accommodating (the busy owner might be a bit distracted at times but has the best interest of his guests in mind).
Will stay here again when back in this beautiful city.

This was my second visit to Hotel Annunziata. My wife's third visit.
Once again when we visited for on 17th June for a total of 5 nights it could not be faulted. The welcome was warm, the staff could not have been more helpful, for example we hired a car for one day and they receptionist sat down with us to discuss best places to visit. Breakfast was always a treat, rooms clean and modern, in total during our combined stays we have been in 4 different rooms with no complaints at all. It is unlikely that we will be visiting Ferrara in the next few years as our daughter is about to finished her year study abroad.

I have no hesitation in strongly recommending Hotel Annunziata and if in future years we do find ourselves in a position of revisiting Ferrara, i hope the hotel has maintained the excellent standards we experienced over the past year.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, we have been in both superior and standard rooms - the superior rooms as you wou...

We stayed at the Aunnunziata for three nights at the start of June. It was in every way a wonderful experience.
The hotel itself is perfectly located in the centre of ferrara opposite the castle, this means that all the sites/restuarants etc are walking distance. In terms of facility's there is everything you would want, free wifi, a very sensibly priced mini bar (water 1 euro, half bottle prosecco 6 euro) and very smart clean modern rooms. There is a mac computer and two ipads available for use downstairs. The whole hotel is decorated in a funky modern style, and looks new from inside. The staff are incredibly helpful and willing to do what they can to help. Breakfast had a fantastic selection, including a couple of hot options.There were huge varieties of fruit, drinks,cheeses, and also lump fish roe! There were also the usual cereals, cold cured meats etc. The hotel has 6 bikes for free usage by guests. They were very comfortable (my wife usually complains of a sore bum but not on these) and they were a great way to see ferrara. The hotel also had a bowl of apples in reception for general consumption- a nice healthy touch!
All we can say is we were reluctant to leave and would highly recommend this hotel. Huge thanks to Massimo for making our stay so special!

We stayed in the Annunziata because of the good tripadvisor ratings. It lived up to its billing. Smart, clean, modernised hotel; spacious bedroom; fabulous breakfast buffet and professional staff. Only niggle was the very discreet hotel signboard; so it took a while to locate - but worth the effort!

We thank you for your appreciation, and we apologize for the hotel signboard that, as you said, is little bit discreet and in vertical position instead of the standard horizontal format that we all knows, but there is a reason: we target to the stars.
