I stayed in this hotel for one night only. The room was good in its price category. The only problem was that I couldn't connect to its free wifi. The breakfast was good with reasonable items. I like its location which is very near to the castle of Ferrara.

Dear Murtoza. I'm very sorry. It's true! The system crashed due to a technical problem. We were able to restore the connection only in the next morning at 09.00. I hope that everything else was pleasant. Thanks for being our guest. Best Regards. Antonio Meloni More

You pay only for the location wich is right in fron of the castle. The service and confort is that of a two star hotel not four. The room was clean. The breakfast can be improved. Ferrara is a beautiful city worth the visit.

Thanks Mr. Dirk. Our beds are all long cm 200. What is the standard length for a hotel bed in Italy. I'm sorry you have not been sufficient for your length. I hope you are satisfied the same anyway. Many greetings. Antonio Meloni More

There is no bar or room service and reception is separate from the rooms. The night porter does not answer the telephone so you have to put on a coat and stroll across the public courtyard if there is a problem. No hairdryer in my room and noisy 'puffer' style heating stuck on 25 degrees - too hot for me.... More

After my last stay I was not very happy about the Ferrara hotel. But this time service was better. The hotel has an excellent location to feel Italy - located in the old town, just by the castle of Ferrara. Rooms are ok, but I rather like their bathrooms - they have not only bathtub but also bidet. Breakfast, unfortunately,... More

Good location – at the centre of Ferrara. Easy to find a parking place on the streets around (with 5 minutes’ walk) in blue zone: The hotel offers a special parking ticket for 3€ per day.

Dear shopper 78, thank you for being our guest, for your review, and for the honesty with which you express yourself. As always, the old rule applies: listen to the views of all and then decide for themselves. The own personal experiences are not easily replicated to others...like you know.

A dated hotel with a great location and good service. 4 star restaurant..Stayed on a group tour, otherwise would not have chosen this hotel. Little English-speaking staff, typical of the area. Sporadic bar service. Hotel did not give the impression of aggressively seeking clients

A lovely hotel in a superb location. Across the street from the castle and next to to a square with almost weekly events. Numerous restaurants are within walking distance, and there are always a cafe or stop for gelato nearby.

Dear Mr. Jethrone. Thanks you. As you know, we are in the city center next to the castle. Immersed in a magical atmosphere that tells of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. At times, seems to still hear the sound of horse-drawn carriages .... We hope to have you our guest again in the future. Best Regards. Antonio Meloni -General... More
