We stayed three nights in this fantastic B&B in the wonderful town of Ferarra during the 2016 Ferragosto weekend. This B&B scores a top rating on multiple items: - Location: it is perfectly located close to the city centre and the many places of interest. The Este castello is just down the road at an easy 5 to 10 minutes... More

For our first visit to Ferrara we selected Alchimia for our family because it is across the street from a lovely park, offers free bikes to use to access the city, and has a small private garden in back for kids to play. The location is close to the city centre, easily accessed by foot or bike. Upon arrival we... More

Although the building is extremely historic, the rooms are modern, immaculate and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was delicious. I wholeheartedly recommend this B&B!

We stayed here for 4 nights, originally to see the Palio that they have in Ferrara each year. The room was immaculate - it all seemed brand new, and the little touches; lemonade in the garden, the friendly service from everyone, could not be beaten. Nothing was too much trouble, they found out times of trains and buses and made... More

I cannot praise enough this bed & breakfast. The location is perfect, close to the centre of the old town. Restaurants & historical places are within walking distance but they will give you a bicycle if you prefer to tour the town this way. The place is modern, efficient, clean, nicely decorated, the room we stayed in (104) was spacious,... More

I can't speak highly enough of the service from the alchimia people, from restaurant recommendations and bookings, ferrying back and forward to the station (including my passport left behind in the safe) and their generally kind and hospitable manner. The breakfast was top notch and taken in their delightful garden room. The free bikes were sturdy, reliable and the best... More

We were very lucky to get a last minute reservation here. The building is traditional, yet the rooms are completely updated and renovated. Great location, ten minute walk to everything. Very friendly owner and staff. They have bikes that you can take out to explore Ferrara and ride along the city walls. Ferrara is a wonderful city, less touristy than... More

We were met at the station and driven to the Alchimia where our rooms were ready. What an amazing blend of historic building, immaculate modern rooms and the friendliest hosts I have ever met. Then there are the garden, the cats, the tortoises and the wonderful breakfast in the conservatory. They insisted on driving us to the airbus stop when... More

We had stayed at the Alchimia B&B two years ago and returned here again this year because of our wonderful experience the first time. We found it just as delightful this time!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the historic town centre of Ferrara, in a 1400 year-old Palace, ALCHEMIA Room & Breakfast offers charming and stylish comfort. ALCHEMIA R&B is open all year round, with newly refurbished rooms and surroundings which are elegant, cosy and soundproofed to ensure the best possible comfort, an ideal base for a stay in Ferrara. The rooms are furnished with our special "alchemical recipe" based on the simplicity of the lines, using materials such as solid wood combined with the purity of steel. To guarantee our guests' relaxation, you can take advantage of our free private parking, where you can "forget" your car and enjoy your holiday with full peace of mind. All the rooms are on the ground floor, with no architectural barriers, so they are easily accessible to people with disabilities. All rooms have independent access with an electronic lock and private bathrooms. Ferrara is known for its medieval town centre, the city walls and its many cycling lanes, which you will be able to explore benefitting from our completely free bike-hire service. ALCHIMIA R&B is conveniently located in the heart of the city at less than 5 minutes on foot or by bicycle from the main points of interest. In the morning you can enjoy an excellent and delicious breakfast buffet as room service or in our breakfast room, where we serve a selection of warm pastries, home-made cakes, yogurt, jam, tea, milk and coffee and other goodies all made with fresh and genuine organic products. Upon request we can prepare breakfast for guests with special needs like celiacs and diabetics. For those who want to learn more about the history of this Estense town we provide books and encyclopaedias in our reading area, where you can have safe internet access with our R&B iPad. There is a 50 sq. m. internal area and a 300 sq. m. external area dedicated to the exhibition of contemporary art of various types and genres.
