The hotel is situated not far from the main italian highway, so it is a perfect place to stay when you travel to the south of Italy and need one night break. Very friendly staff. You can visit the Mantova´s center, which is almost 5 km far, so better to have a car.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast was very good. The hotel is 10 euro ride from the centre of town which in it's self is not a problem but makes you reliant on taxis.
hotel was great - modern, clean, good staff was very difficult to find
Let us choose between single or double room junior suite. Very practical and good rate for seeing some very beautiful spots in Italy. 3 cockroaches hanging in the curtains. We also asked whether we could borrow a pack of matches to light our 1 year old daughters birthday candle in the room. This was declined, no reason given. Internet was down for 1.5 hours, although the manager was friendly about it. I don't see how this can happen in clearly a business oriented hotel. On the way out, we were presented with a bill 100 Euro more than what booking.com offered, and after clarifying, the non-used minibar charges were dropped, as were the inaccurate room charges. The mistake was glossed over with a.... "oops, here is your booking.com invoice." Hmmmm...
very friendly and helpful personnel, nice room and location. Easy for shopping
The rooms were beautifully furnished (modern) and very comfortable. If you are travelling by car it is a very convenient location for a city trip. It's a five minutes' drive to the city centre.
Clean hotel. Nice size rooms Bath tub/ shower was dangerously slippery
Modern smart hotel, freindly helpful staff, on outskirts of pretty town, - plenty of parking. Need a car
It is new, the rooms are excellent, the staff are especially attentive and the breakfast buffet is good there is nothing around it apart fron ipercoop
Could not fault the facilities and staff -- and excellent hotel to stay at. I would recommend it readily. It was excellent in alal respects
Friendly staff, very nice clean design all over the hotel, clean rooms. Easy to stay.
very friendly and helpful staff, cheap bicycle hire from hotel, big comfortable modern room and bathroom no internet facilities either in the hotel or the town (Mantua). 1.5 km walk to train station.
Breakfast excellent even eggs and bacon. Rooms immaculate. Reception staff very helpful and booked us a table at the local Trattoria just behind the hotel. Request a room away from the front, we had to move for the second night as we had hardly any sleep with all the traffic noise, we live in the country so not used to traffic.
Quite clean rooms and very kind and friendly staffs. It is a bit far from station, but it's worth.
fantastic minimalist design, location, easy parking check out at 10.00 :(((
Central position with secure parking Big effort on design but many faults. Some staff unfriendly. Poor breakfast.
friendly staff, decent breakfast, great rooms
You don't have culture or art or history as a category - this is what this hotel is best for.
The fresh design of the room
The attitude of the staff, which appeared to be that the customer is always wrong until proven otherwise. The door jamb fell off the bathroom door onto my mother's head. The member of staff informed us that she would check with housekeeping to see if the door jamb was loose when the room had been cleaned in the morning. There were no blankets either on the bed or in the room. The reception staff recommended a local restaurant for dinner, which served overcooked food. The restaurant owner tried to convince us that Italian food was supposed to be overcooked and proceeded to charge us for the food that we had not eaten.
Easy to find, big parking area, easy accesible poor air conditioning system in the room
free wi fi connection in the hotel
The restaurant was fully booked and receptioon did not warn this. I had to go for a walk to find food.
very comfortable and calm place to stay installing coffee/tea vending machine shall be considered
Very comfortable, very good meal, kind welcome;
Hotel restaurant was not available during our stay
Good value for money - Staff young and motivated - Good breakfast - Location not on Industrial Estate which is good for the price - adequate car park and access good to A22 Mantova North. Restraunt at Hotel and another one within 200mts. Air conditioning very noisy - window could not be opened on 1st floor as ledge access not good for security - get a room on the floors above with no ledge.
Was easy to find and while on outskirts of town was less than 5 minutes from parking in the historical centre. Pleasant dining and breakfast room.
The restaurant was excellent, in my opinion it is the strong point of the Hotel, the rooms and its amenities were very comfortable too. The staff was very friendly both at the reception and at the restaurant for dinner and breakfast.
the kindness of the staff was very good a dissabled person can not reach the toilet because the door opens on the wrong side.
Very nice double room, good beds and fine bathroom. The nice price! The hotel is located outside the city center and it is not possible to walk to city center pending lack of suitable footpasses/pavements.
When we where checking out the staff told us the wrong price ( of course a higer price, then they corrected it when we pointed it out)
Very quite, calm and clean. Fantastic price A gym or a sauna would make a perfect place. It would also be fantastic to keep this price for instance during the weekend or when the place is less busy. Good price is always during Christmas
Convenient for visiting Carpi and Modena. Very good restaurant almost next door. When we arrived in the restaurant for breakfast there was little food left and many of the tables had not been cleared. Over the next ten minutes or so the staff sorted out the situation.
Value of the stay and both cleanliness and hassle free wifi Not easy to find
close to the highway, very convenient price during the weekend people are too cold. you really miss the warmth of people
design and confort breakfast very basic
An excellent hotel with very helpful staff. Superb room.
Easiness in checking in and out,as long as the privacy each client has. It has too cold mood
very nice and friendly staff, good bed, great room
Staff was helpful and flexible, good restaurant Small shover cabin, and at 6am some idiot was swaping loudly the street, but this can happen every.where
Great personnel. Treated nicely by all. Okay breakfast. Terrible dinner service and just so-so food! No free internet. That is a no-no for business people. Okay TV. Great parking. Room far too small. Only one iron and ironing board to share with all hotel rooms. A disgrace by American standards! Bed way too small & low!
the room was really nice no
We were very impressed with the hotel, it represents very good value for money. The rooms were excellent, and the staff were very helpful. A good breakfast was provided. We were travelling around Italy by train and this hotel is a short walk from the station. The town of Carpi is very beautiful.
Great fitness center
Hotel is absolutely comfortable, friendly and nice inside, as well outside, cause its only 3 min from railway station... i was really satisfied about it:)
The staff was very gracious. We felt very well taken care of. They went out of their way to help us with bike rentals, parking, overall help in seeing the city. The carpet in the rooms was not very clean.
Proximity of the cities (Modena, Bologna, Parma, Verona...) and a quick acces to the motorways. The parking of the hotel is too small regarding to the room capacity.
On arrival at the hotel the staff were very pleasant. The hotel location is perfect for a visit to Carpi. I will use the hotel again. The only complaint was that we could not get sandwiches during the day, we were directed to a cafe across the road.
Breakfast was OK Hotel too old
Nice quality/price ratio
Room facilities was fine and clean
Staff were very accomodating. Free parking
the restaurant and the comfort no
The staff made us most welcom. This is the fourt htime we have stayed at the hotel during the Automechanika show. We have booked again for 2010 so I think you can see we are happy. No
Spacious and clean room and bathroom. Quiet area, very close to the center of this small town. Small supermarket and hairdressers at the other side of the hotel. Very helpful and pleasant staff. A bit difficult to find, there were not a lot of indications. Althought we put the car in the garage for safety, we found out that the place we parked it was under a leaking pipe, leaving white stains of something like salt that could make damage. However, the staff accepted to do something for it. The breakfast menu was unsupervised so it was at the mercy of flies. The airconditioning was under the control of the reception, we had to ask if we wanted more heat.
Good access to the autostrada, quiet room, friendly staff, suited our overnight needs en route from our holiday base. Misleading/onaccurate signage at a crucial roundabout, a direction arrow was in totally the wrong direction so we had wasted time and some degree of frustration. Because of the quiet holiday period, the restaurant was shut, in fact the whole hotel was shutting for the rest of the month the day we left. We had booked a dinner, bed and breakfast package, but it all resolved itself in the end-helped in the main by the friendly, understanding fellow in charge on reception.
The room was pleasant and the bed was comfortable.I had no problems finding a car parking space near to the main entrance--a bonus with heavy luggage. Dinner prices were too high. The bacon and scrambled eggs at breakfast looked dreadful---the bacon was swimming in oil, and the eggs looked dry and unpatatable.The flat screen tv in the room looked great but didn't appear to work.
Room, breakfast, hall Air conditioning noising
well laid out and comfortable rooms
the accommodation very nice, bright new, modern, comfortable, spacious.... location - bit far from anything - needing car as we used it just as a stop not having restaurant or being close to one bit difficult, but shop quite close.
The Hotel is brand new and rich of high quality services/facilities. The car navigator could not find the place due to main street not yet completed. We feel that the internet access should have been free and not restricted in time.
Very friendly atmosphere. Big, spacious rooms, well furnished, big bathroom. Breakfast buffet with wonderful, homemade cakes. The place is difficult to find and you cannot really walk to the center. But once you get there, you won't regret that choice.
Very clean well run establishment. Owner Anna could not have been more helpful with local information including dining suggestions both in Mantova and nearby (her recommendations of Grifone Bianco in Mantova and Nuova Osteria in nearby Tripoli were excellent).Building is a mix of old and new with country villa structure but with modern quirky decor (eg old ceiling supported by clean iron joists and colourful lighting). Good breakfast including home made cakes. Large room sizes. Building could do with a dining room as I found it a little strange to eat breakfast in what is essentially the entrance hall. Location not the easy to find and immediate area not that attractive. Quite a busy road and junction outside. But as a base for Montova it is very good.
Very friendly staff. Lovely restored villa. Make sure you have a map - a little tricky to find.
We had a little difficulty finding the Hotel but the lady who ran the hotel could not have been more helpful. The room was lovely and very large with a great view. The breakfast was great - lots of lovely homemade cakes. If we were in this area again we would definitely go back.
Charming place and excellent hotel-holder, Ms. Anna, who had precious directions about the area.
It was a perfect place for romance...... very nicely decorated, newly rebuilt!
very good restaurant with friendly service, Internet free of charge with resonable speed. General friendly and competent staff. Comfortable.
The evening staff were exceptionally efficient, helpful and friendly. The restaurant offered a very good and varied menu of local specialities. The suite was large and very good value for money.
I like everything about this Hotel. The Personnel was super exquisite. The Hotel is a old building restated and has the charms of the old epoque. The room are super clean and spacious. WIFI works great. Breakfast is in a giant room and there is nothing missing. Price is half compare to the usual 4 stars in Carpi (which are often 3 stars). I was given a free park just in front to the Hotel. The town itself is a true discovery, full of boutique and beautiful untouched street and 19th century buildings!! Really a must, I will stay again when in Carpi.
the great advise of the maitr d' - staying in a medieval centre
Location, free and fast internet connection, very nice room, free parking
It was a very comfortable stay. The woman serving dinner was fabulous -- very friendly and warm and a wonderful hostess. The air conditioning in our room (#11) did not work propertly -- the room was very hot and stuffy all night. We tried to open the windows, but without any screens, the mosquitos came in.
Lovely old fashioned feel to the hotel much better than modern chain hotels. Excellent staff. A well hidden gem. I spend approximately 2 months per annum in hotels and this has been one of the nicest hotel experiences in recent years.
Airconditioning was not working satisfactory in the room at 35°C.
relaxing and friendly atmosphere
Position of hotel is central,near restuarants and lake. Close to major points of interest eg.ducale palace.Modern renovation with airconditioning. Stairs only
Room was brilliant and beautiful and restaurant was fantastic. Location could not be better.
The historical position of the Residenza and its restaurant. Excellent view over the old Piazza Erbe.
Beautifully appointed room, and very comfortable; top class interior design The room is serviced only by the family restaurant opposite. They are charming and very attentive people, but it's not quite the same as having concierge/receptionist service etc
The hosts are very friendly and helpful, and the hotel is very conveniently situated for sight-seeing, shopping and excellent restaurants. There is no elevator, and it is very noisy.
The location was excellent, right in the centre of the town. The cheap quality bed sagged in the centre, giving us an uncomfortable sleepless night. Only a single topsheet, no bedcover. There were no proper curtains so one could not keep out the street lights. Noisy aircon. No safe. The two spare pillows in the cupboard were dirty and lacked pillowcases. Likewise the duvet. No satellite tv or English programs. No lift (we were 3rd floor.) The room was dusty. Altogether an uncomfortable stay. Check in had to be at certain times only. Not poor service, just no service. The only breakfast offered was a drink and sweet cake. 2* hotel at 4* plus price.
Central location. Quiet. Good air conditioning and shower. Comfortable bed. Friendly and helpful service in pre-booking taxis, hire car, flight seats. Lack of drawer space.
Very warm welcome and very helpful staff. Superb location. The hotel does not have a reception area nor any in-hotel staff, and it is not possible to enter the hotel without a key for the front door. However, one has to go to a restaurant across the Piazza Erbe to register and get one's key etc., and there is no indication to that effect on the door of the hotel. Finding out about that on arrival could be quite difficult from someone who does not speak italian. A second 'problem' is that there is no phone or other means of communication with the outside world in the rooms. Should anything happen, I guess one would be in some difficulty...
Detailed renovation and modernization of an old building. Located on the main piazza in town. A most colorful surrounding with many historical sights Not for the light of sleep - a very noisy piazza, even with windows shut
Excellent location. Spacious bathroom with plenty of hot water. Good heating system - needed in the depths of winter! The suite does not have a comfortable chair - let alone a sofa - since there is no space for it. The balcony with 2 chairs can't be used during the winter. Therefore "duplex double" is a fairer description of room 4. No pictures or rugs. Furniture reminiscent of Ikea. Since this is a Residenza and not a hotel - so no facilities except access to the restaurant after 10am for breakfast - I think this accommodation is over-priced.
The central location was fantastic and Cristina and her husband could not have been more helpful!
The managements helpfullness and consideration in assisting us to gain parking and reach our apartment in the centre of the medieval town was more than excellent.
The location is amazing. It is in the epicenter of this fantastic little historic town
Personal touch! There are only 5 suites/rooms here and it shows. The dedication of the of the lady running the place is top. Also, the rooms are tastefully decorated and it is very centrally located. It's diffcult to park, but then you should not be wanting to stay in the city centre if this is your concern. Also the TV was not particularly good, but then: why would you want to watch TV if you're in the centre of Modena?
