Comfortable rooms and courteous staff in a great location

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Heimo Business - 19/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I stay here regularly on business trips and am always greeted by professional and courteous staff. Rooms are very comfortable as well. The only downside is a lack of restaurant/bar facilities, but there are many options nearby.

Great location, great value

Not expected

Customer review rating 1.0/5

Bartek Couples - 20/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is nicely located and looks nice. But and this is a big but. We were given a room with one window and no other form of ventilation (understand the building is old). Just outside of the window there was a very small space (roof and walls of other building) all covered with pigeon s***. So no way to have it open (not to mention the look)..

Location, location....

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Caroline Couples - 18/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Location is not all but it is a lot. This hotel certainly delivers in that respect and even more in the room we had: facing the d'Este castle, with two large windows. Any time of day the view is stupendous. And with this central location, all monuments are close by. Just next to the hotel is a square where several restaurants have their tables, sprawling out under the trees, with kids playing and families gathering around long tables. Italy at its best.

Great location worth a stay

Lovely city hotel in Ferrara

andreasgC1085XL Solo travel - 14/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

Lovely city hotel in the center of Ferrara. Very close to the castello of Ferrara, restaurants, churches and piazzas. The hotel was clean and I was very happy with my room. The hotel stay very friendly and gave me good tips. I will come definitively back to enjoy the flair of Ferrara.

Great location

After calling to check how to get to the hotel and receiving poor instructions we were told that despite the fact that our room was ready that check in was not until 14.00. I have never been to a 4 star hotel that did not check guests in if the room was free even if they turn up early for check-in. However, after a rocky start we found the staff to be extremely helpful (although being wrongly reassured that a demonstration against Covid rules was in fact a celebration of the new football season).

Mixed Experience

gfaschmidt 21/07/2021 TripAdvisor review

The Hotel Ferrara has a perfect location for a city visit close to the Castle. The price offers a good value for money with two large rooms and good interior. We had a bad experience with the reception service - they forgot to return the ID cards (we too). The request to send the documents to our next location with UPS is still not successful after on week. Late response, no email feedback and a unorganized team.

Very kind and helpful receptionists

stayed for only one night but wish it was longer. Reception was very efficient for check-in/check-out and very helpful for all our needs. Room was very comfortable.

Anonymous Solo - 06/10/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

All the things I look for - good breakfast pastries, room made up promptly, quiet and clean. Point knocked off for room smelling a bit of stagnant water and no sign saying Mercure outside, which added more time to a long journey searching.

Dear Guest, Thank you for the great review of our hotel! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon. Sincerely,

John D. Couples - 22/09/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

We had a very enjoyable week in Ferrara made more enjoyable by the very comfortable hotel room (51 ). Apart from the usual bedside lights powered by extremely malnourished glowworms, all the room facitities worked well. Good shower and bath etc. Wonderful location makes all the main sites walkable. Did not use the restaurant but plenty of places to eat within walking distance even for octogenarians. When the barman had a day off the bar closed. What?

No indication that this was a Mercure outside so very difficult to locate. Not quite up to the usual Mercure standards but helpful staff. No baggage deposit, no water, shower dangerously slippery and leaked over floor, A/C faulty. Fantastic location!

Dear Guest, Thank you for the great review of our hotel! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon. Sincerely
