“A five star hi-tech hotel”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

The first word that comes to my mind is: Wow.
This hotel felt absolutely like a five star hotel, and our room felt like a president suite! Huge spacious room. We had not only a huge wide super comfortable bed, but also a table with two comfy chairs, a large sofa and a desk with a keyboard and a bottle of water for free. The bathroom was spacious too, and offered many little treats that are super nice to have when you are traveling (anything you can think of, like a toothbrush, makeup remover and plenty more little stuff you may have forgotten to bring to the trip).
The breakfast is very rich. And the staff is very pleasant.
The hotel is located in an industrial zone (that has many office buildings and commercial center), outside of the town itself. But if you travel by car it's great, cause it offers huge amount of parking lots.

I arrived on the 18th September 2013, enquiring for a room for the night as I was on a Europe wide tour by motor bike (BMWR1200RTSE) only to confronted by a receptionest who clearly consider me to be a securtiy risk by demanding that I pay for my room up front with the goon in the back office also having the same view.

Later that evening I entered the restaurant only to find that I was more smartly dressed than most of the other guests who had been accepted on face value because they had arrived by car. After the meal I was asked if I would like the bill to added to my room account but had to explain that I had already paid and would pay by cash, which implied that I could not be trusted.

The following morning I noted that eveyone booking out paid at that point.

It would seem from my treatmant that because I arrived by bike I was not to be trusted and therefore to be treated like a common criminal/conman.

My advise to anyone using a bike to give the Citystylehotels.it a miss as they are not biker friendly.

We were impressed with Hotel La Favorita during our recent stay - the rooms were modern and clean and the room rate was a great price. As others have said, the hotel is a few minutes drive from the old city center, but it's not an issue as long as you know you cannot really walk there. The breakfast room was spacious and clean; but, I suggest you get to breakfast promptly, as we went later in the morning and it was pretty picked-over. We would definitely stay there again if in Mantova!

I stayed for a short business trip in October 2012 and was welcomed in the lobby by the Trip Advisor certificates for "Trip Advisor 2012 Winner - Trendiest Hotel".

Even though the hotel is located only 4km from the historic town centre, you could be mistaken for waking up in any old wholesale retail area with large empty parking lots and outlet malls. "Trendy" may be because of the bargain shopping then.

The breakfast room was really cold on the 3 mornings I ate there, as well as during the one meagre dinner. I dined with my 7 other colleagues and it was not possible to somehow synchronize the arrival of our meals. The last person to receive his main meal did so 45 minutes after we had finished.

Of the three lasagnes that were ordered, none came with any sort of garnish - no parsley, no love - just a solid slab on a white plate for 12 Euro. When the waiter was asked to reheat the cold lasagne, his reaction was an unsurprised "ah yes" as a matter of course. The two other lasagnes also had to be re-heated.

The disclaimer on the menu should have been a clue "Some products may have been frozen before or after processing". I recommend the various other restaurants in town for dinner for a "Trendier" dining experience.

As a last point, I had to ask the reception to send toilet paper to my room. Such a fundamental oversight that I concluded that it must be Amateur Night at 112 Euro!

Staid in this hotel during a business trip. It is big but clean and facilities are good. Beds comfortable and service at the reception good. Some incidences with the programmable key to open the room. I had to reprogram it every day. One of the colleagues had the same issue. Laundry also did not take my cloths even they were well prepared following hotel procedures. Breakfast is a bufet, correct. Internet for free during 8 hours but coverage of signal was not very good. Biggest problem of this hotel is that is far away from the city and it is needed a car or taxi service to go to the center.

We stopped for one night at this new hotel just outside of Mantova. It looks brand new and we were upgraded to the largest room which actually has a second bath besides the grand master bath. The decorations are totally fresh and beautiful. It is very convnenient right off the autostrada and just 5 minutes from central Mantova. Excellent selections for inclusive breakfast. Highly recommanded!
