    Lovely traditional hotel

    I loved this hotel! The staff were welcoming and helpful, and keen to give information about the town. The hotel is in a quiet side street but has some good restaurants nearby and is only two minutes' walk from the main square. My room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was good, too

    Hotel in centro

    Esperienza positiva anche se breve. Hotel e personale accoglienti. Servizio puntuale e posizione perfetta anche per chi raggiunge Ferrara in macchina visto che il parcheggio si trova a poche centinaia di metri.

    Ambienti molto belli, la camera con il sottotetto con i travi di legno a vista, la particolarità delle finestre automatiche poste sul tetto mi è piaciuto molto, la sala colazione.

    una città di pianura da riscoprire

    unn pò difficile raggiungere la struttura ho chiesto a due persone molto gentili e ho raggiunto il posto accoglienza con ospitalità solo due giorni di cui uno per la maratona, la colazione dalle 7 è ottima ma metterei anche della frutta oleosa tipo mandorle, silenziosa come struttura e accogliente, letto confortevole e pulizie ottime, a due passi dal centro città la cattedrale con le sue strane botteghe addosate al muro , mancano ancora delle cose da vedere anche se sembra siano chiuse , non è detto che ritorni per una visita più approfondita
