Outdated but great value

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 15, 2013

I booked this 3-star hotel almost 5 months in advance, so I had a good deal. At first, I was a little bit concerned because the rate was around 43,20€... while another hotel (a four-star one) was 109€. We didn't spot the hotel right away, so we had to go around the block until we finally saw it (despite having a GPS...).

We arrived around the check-in time at 2 PM and managed to find a parking space almost in front of the hotel. We were relived with the hotel first impressions...it looked good and it was less than 5 minutes away from Piazza Castello (Estense Castle). The receptionist provided us a parking ticket (3€), asked us to fill in and sign a paper with our car information. Our room wasn't ready yet, so we waited in the lobby. As she didn't know when the room would be ready, we decided to leave our luggage with them and go out to have lunch. Apparently they had no proper luggage storage, so we left it on a corner across the reception desk...

When we came back, our room was finally available. I don't recall the number but it was on the third floor on the front of the hotel (there was a park in front of it, so it was calm). It felt like travelling back in time when stepping inside the room. I regret not taking any photos because our room didn't look anything like the ones on the picture. The decoration was very 70's/80's but the room was clean. It was equipped with a mini-fridge (with 2 complimentary small mineral water bottles) and A/C (a must during the summer in Ferrara!). The TV was not a flat screen one but had a few international channels (BBC, CNN and some German channel). The bathroom was huge and since it was during summer, it was very hot inside! We couldn't open the bathroom window because it faced another room's window, so no privacy... The wi-fi was down for almost 4 days and when we checked-out, it hadn't been fixed yet...

Our rate included the breakfast, which was a great surprise. The breakfast area was modern compared to our room. It had a good choice but I thought it lacked salty stuff (I would have prefered more bread choices, but since it was complimentary...). For those with a sweet tooth, you'll certainly enjoy it (sweet rolls, pies, etc).

The windows aren't double-glazed, so I was a little bit annoyed with the thunders noise during the night but other than that, we weren't annoyed by our "neighbours", except around 8 AM when the cleaning staff started moving around furniture not gracefully...which woke us up.

We would definitely stay again at this hotel.

Unique Quality: Location, clean, great rates
