Nice small hotel in the center of Ferrara, near to the Castello and Palazzo dei Diamanti. Run by friendly people; good breakfast and atmosphere; reduced parking, rent a bike nearby. Fine place to stay in this pleasant town.

Ferrara is a great alternative to the crowds of tourists in the bigger cities, and the sunny disposition of Hotel De Prati guarantees that you will have a very comfortable visit. Vibrant color and exciting art fill the hotel, and it is staffed by people who offer exactly the right balance of professional efficiency and helpful friendliness. My room was exactly what I wanted, good wi-fi, reasonable price, excellent breakfast. I spent three days exploring points of interest in Ferrara, all within comfortable walking distance, interspersed with convenient day trips by train to Florence and Bologna. Ferrara is a real breath of fresh air with bicycle being the main mode of transportation. I recommend it, and Hotel De Prati, as a destination, or as a hub for day travel anywhere between Florence and Venice.

We had a great time in Ferrara thanks to this lovely hotel with the nice staff. We travelled with 3 children, so it was a pleasant surprise when we entered the appartment. It was spacious, quiet, airconditioned, modern and well equipped. Walking distance to main attractions.

A lovely family run, small boutique hotel situated very near to all the things a tourist would go to Ferrara to see. We had a lovely suite on the top floor with a great balcony and nice view. Our hosts were very friendly and happy to assist. This hotel is great value for money too. The rooms are very spacious with separate lounge and plenty of wardrobe space. They also serve a very nice breakfast and excellent coffee. ferrara has lots of really good eateries and we found a couple on the old streets of town.

The position is already ideal, at walking distance from all of the major sights that a visitor would want to see in Ferrara. From the moment you walk in, an extremely courteous and friendly welcome, beautifully fitted out hotel with tasteful modern art, comfortable and clean bedroom and bathroom, but the breakfast beats everything: an unimaginable quantity and quality in delightful surroundings. It would be hard to improve on this.

We discovered the Hotel de Prati on our road trip through Ferrara. We instantly decided that was the perfect place to stay for the night. Beautiful hotel, nice rooms, the lady at the desk was super nice and couldn't be more accommodating. She had great food recommendations and the location was near great walking distance sites. We will stay there the next time we are in Ferrara with out a doubt.

Room Tip: Parking is in a lot a few tiny blocks away, the nice lady at the desk will help you with directions...

Hotel de Prati is a perfect example of what an independent hotel can offer. Fantastic location in a quiet street right near Castello Estense. With breakfast included it was very economical. Our plan was to hire bikes to travel around this walled city and we were thrilled to be provided with 3 bikes by the hotel. Our rooms were spacious and there was a lift.
