    The hotel was very comfortable and close to the train staion - a short walk - and the main attractions of the historical center. Very kind staff, excellent services, my single room perfect. I felt really good!!

    No complaints!!!!!

    Good

    It has a good fairly central location.

    The hotel is very basic and not modernised I think for many years. It is central location which is handy and staff friendly.

    the room is definetiy too small and at the last day there was no water in the morning and we had to change our traveling programs because couldnt think about going anyway where when we are dirty.

    Fabulous

    Very friendly staff, excellent breakfast buffet, good location just 300m away from Ferrara center, well-priced. I liked it for the occasion.

    The rooms are definitely 4 star, but a bit uninviting (standard style with big flatscreen TV and fridge and all amenities, but did not really possess charme...). Nice bathroom with windows, though.

    The location was excellent for sigthseeing and the station

    Decor was gloomy and my room was very small with poor lighting. The shower sprayed everywhere and was very cramped. The hotel boasted that there were TV channels in major languages but there was only one German channel and Eurosport in English.

    Fabulous

    It was well located - halfway between the station and the city centre. The staff were great, very helpful and very accommodating. They went out of their way to assist me with several queries and booking changes.

    The staff was impolite. They are not told us that was required parking ticket for the park a car in front of hotel. As a result of that, while registering, we received a penalty for improper parking.

    They had communicating rooms. Clean.

    You would expect better rooms and facilities when booking a 4-star hotel: the bar did not have lemonades nor juices, rooms and bathrooms are rather poor with oldish furniture.
