Dear 89jude, thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent visit in Mantova. We are sorry to hear that you did not have a comfortable stay. Thank you again for your feedback with us, we do hope to welcome you back very soon again. With kind regards.
The hotel is near the center of the city and the reception is located in the ABC Hotel (just in front of the station so easy to find). Parking available in the courtyard for an extra fee but there are free parking lots on the streets behind the hotel.
WiFi not available in each room but only in the common area, with password.
I've booked two rooms: the triple room was in a section of the hotel near the bar so there was a bit of noise during the night. The double room was in a quite and silent section and I've really enjoy the stay. Rooms and toilette were clean and spacious.
thank you for your review and your nice words.
It's a pleasure to know that you fancied your stay in Antica Dimora.
We welcome your suggestions, indicated to the competent Staff, to improve our Hotel service.
We hope to have you again as Our Guest,
Part of the ABC hotel. Across Central Station. The exit of the hotel is on the back side and from there it just a short walk into the town.
Room was very big, had airco and good wifi. Nice bathroom with a decent shower. Cleanliness was in order. If wanted you can park your car inside, but is 15 euro a night. Free parking is on 150 meter down the road.
What else could one wish?
Dear Ger B,
thank you for your review and your appreciations.
We are happy to know that you liked your staying with us and that you have a nice memory of it.
Looking forward to your next trip to Mantova,
Read M Jakabson's review as it does a great job of describing the Hotel Antica Dimora. I'll add a few observations. My wife and I were driving around Mantua looking for a place to stay for two nights when we happened to see the Hotel Antica Dimora on Corso V. Emanuele. We stopped and I went up to the door which was locked, but there was an intercom. By calling on the intercom I learned that the check in desk was behind the hotel at the ABC Hotel across from the RR Station. Since it is across from the RR Staion it makes it easy to find. At the ABC Hotel the people managing were very friendly and helpful. One of the personnel showed us a room at the Antica Dimora. The room faced the back of the hotel away from the street and looking out at the private parking lot where we parked our car. The place is ideal if you have a car for the parking lot is secured, but you can easily get in and out. As for our room, it was large and comfortable and the bathroom was modern. Everything was clean and neat. We were very pleased with the entire setup. The fine buffet breakfast was in the breakfast room of the ABC Hotel across the parking lot. Although we had a notebook computer we chose to use the hotel's computer on the first floor. It worked fine and we had no trouble getting on-line. There was no charge for that. One of the benefits of the hotel is that they rent bicycles by the half or full day at a reasonable charge. Down the street along the tracks is an entrance to the park and bicycle path along the lake. It is a pleasant place to ride and is free of traffic. Of course you can ride in the streets of Mantua and the motorists are patient and considerate of bicyclists. The hotel is a mere 10 minute walk from the major sites of the city. The parking fee was 15 euros per night, but the bed and breakfast charge was so reasonable that it offset that. All in all, we were pretty happy with the Hotel Antica Dimora.
Excellent hotel with minor shortcomings. Stayed in a double room for single use (paid around 80 € per night) and ended up in a suite with a balcony. That meant a lovely and spacious room with stylish decoration (ended up in the suite of the hotel, a large room with a balcony, but also the regular room was nice). The staff were polite and the buffet breakfast offered a variety of products for those non-Italians who enjoy a breakfast in the morning (i.e scrambled and boiled eggs, cereal, yoghurt, patisserie, that great Italian ham, prosciutto, prosciutto crudo, apples, juice, etc). There is Parking in the courtyard, though for extra fee and on prior reservation.
Great location and easy to find - just across the railway station. But keep in mind that in order to find the hotel, follow the Hotel ABC signs (Antica Dimora is in the same chain and located across ABC-s courtyard. There is access to the hotel also from Corso Vittorio Emanuele, but this is not as visible and not accessible by car or without your room key, and the reception is located in ABC.
Minor shortcomings - the rooms facing the street (like mine) can be slightly noisy. But it's OK, if you keep the windows and shutters closed. There is air conditioning in the rooms.
The wifi is not very well accessible from Antica Dimora (my Dell found the connection, so for me it was OK, but my colleague's IBM traced no signal), so you either have to go to the hotel's lobby, where there is also a computer for those not travelling with a laptop, or to ABC hotel's lobby to work with your own computer. The internet pass was free of charge for guests.
The Antica Dimora consists of a very charming building with hotel bedrooms reaching a high standard. Thart's all. Reception, breakfast room, etc are situated opposite the hotel and belong to another hotel, the ABC, 3 stars. There are still a Bed and Breakfast and an apartment hotel belonging to the same group, all together surrounding a courtyard where cars can be parked safely for 15 euros. It's not the best accomodation in the world, but you can reach all the important places in Mantua on foot and the breakfast was quite good, if you think that in Italy they just have a croissant and a cappucino. Not a bad experience as a whole.
