Lovely place, warm and welcoming, perfect location. The owner was very friendly and helpful, the room clean and spacious, wifi was working perfectly and very good breakfast (not too many things, but all good and freshly made and/or baked!). I'll definitely go back there when I return to Ferrara.

When we arrived at the hotel, around 13.30, it was closed, and stayed closed until 16.00. These hours are printed on the front of their door. They are closed from 12.30 till 16.00 every day. There is a contact telephone number which I tried several times, but I always got a recorded message saying the number didn't exist. I speak... More

Last year I stayed this place with my colleagues and we really enjoyed it. We had cozy rooms, nice decorated, really great breakfast, and above everything amazing hosts taking care about every detail. In the morning, under the window of a room we enjoyed sweet music of street trumpeter on the cobble stone square of the historical center of Ferrara.

We stayed off-season when there were very few other guests, and there was no one on duty except at breakfast. Our opinion might have been coloured by the fact that we arrived at 8pm to find the Zen front door locked with no response to the bell. Happily a shopkeeper from round the corner checked on the intercom with another... More
