Reviewed July 11, 2012

This hotel is modern, clean and in a combined shopping mall and (empty) office park. It's easy to get to from the freeway in a corner of the La Favorita mall, and has a short drive to the center of town, where parking was easy. Breakfast was good and included. Definitely a great place to stay when visiting Mantova, which is a town we enjoyed a lot for a short stay. The wife found the bed a bit hard, I did not.

Hotel La Favorita is a kilometre from downtown Mantova, east of the San Giorgio bridge, in a modern commercial park. It’s very easy to find if arriving from the autostrada, just beside the main route downtown. It’s more convenient to access by car, although there did seem to be local bus service. Access by car to the historic centre is also easy. There is lots of outdoor parking available, as well as a secure garage. The hotel itself is a very modern building.

Our room was very up-to-date, both in its style and furnishings. There was a great selection of lights to play with. The bed was comfortable and queen-sized. There was a safe, and a mini-bar with enough room for our own supplies. The bathroom was very modern and stylish, but also practical, well-equipped and clean. On the other hand, there were no wine glasses and insufficient plastic cups. A free bottle of water was provided, with much fanfare. A keyboard was provided to go with the television monitor, but there was a charge for the internet connection.

On arrival the check-in staff showed an unpleasant, negative attitude to our questions and to a problem we had with our room safe. This was a problem with one staff member only - for the remainder of our stay we were well looked after.

A high point at this hotel was the restaurant, much better than we expected in a hotel restaurant both for breakfast and dinner. Breakfast had the most selection we encountered outside of Milano. There were multiple types of cheese; prunes, peaches and pears; plenty of fruit juice, a machine which made lots of good coffee; two kinds of eggs; and hot sausages as well as a variety of cold meats. At supper the restaurant offered a number of Mantuan specialties. Those we had were attractively presented, tasted very good, were impeccably served, and were good value. We were particularly impressed by a local antipasto dish of culatello served with mustard marmalade and cheese. We got a bottle of local wine at a reasonable price also.

The hotel is located in a commercial area, close to the highway exit, but not far from the historical city center of Mantova. Location is particulary convenient if you are travelling by car (free parking available).
The opening is recent, so rooms are new. Modern but simple furniture make them stylish but comfy at same time.
Walk in shower is a plus!
Breakfast buffet offers great variety and staff is very friendly.
I would definitely recomend this hotel either for business or for pleasure.
Room rates are quite high, but special offers often occur.

Had troubles finding it even with GPS. The hotel and the street are both new so make sure your GPS is up-to-date and mind there's another La Favorita at Mantua outskirts very far from this one! Very new hotel, nice room and shower. Wi-Fi is free and stable. B-fast is very good. Nice selection of food n drinks. Same restaurant would serve you a dinner - tasty and relatively not expensive. Nowhere to walk, only a shopping center around the corner and Grill House. All other directions would require a car. All in all very nice place to stay with good quality/price ratio.

This is a new hotel designed for business people, but perfectly acceptable for tourists who want to stay just outside Mantova and have a car. It is in a corner of La Favorita shopping center, which can make it hard to find unless you have a GPS. Look for the gray office buildings in one corner of the area and you will eventually find it. It is very very new. The room was large, included breakfast and wifi in the room. The bathroom had a very modern shower but relatively small vanity area around the sink. We had a very nice meal in the dining room; the waiter was gracious and helpful. The room is quiet. The room also had a huge balcony, but to no obvious purpose since it looked out on a currently vacant office building. Parking is right across from the entrance and there is no charge. It took about 10 minutes in 8:00 am traffic to get into Mantova and park near the castle.
How you feel about the location (see rating) depends on whether or not you want to stay in downtown Mantova. There is nothing at all "scenic" about the location.

Room Tip: It would seem that all the rooms have balconies. Room #106 had one almost as large as the inside ro...

We called in on the off chance having read previous reviews. Welcome was good checked in quickly with rate matching that on internet. Room was good size very clean. Staff helpfully told us of bus to town. Meal in restaurant was good with interesting local choices. Breakfast was typical Italian with lots of choice including cakes and sparkling wine.

The only negative thing is that you will need a car to get to the center - even if you would not mind walking 40 mins or so, the road does not really allow you to do so. That being said, all the rest is positive and you do not need to go to the center, because you can have diner in the hotel restaurant and that's quite OK. Rooms are modern and clean, there is a fitness and free internet. The pictures on the website are representing reality. For a first time, it can be a bit complicated to get there (and get away) with the mix up of the roads around it - so make sure you print a detailed map or have a recently updated GPS.
