Nice small hotel in a quiet street in the center.

A very good place to visit Ferrara and its historical highlights. The hotel is 2min from the piazza where lots of people meet every evening. Not too many tourists – because, as GWB would have said: Ferrara is still "misunderestimated" among the cultural treasures of Italy.
If you plan to visit the region for a week or longer, Ferrara (and this hotel) is the optimal place: it takes 1-2 hours to all the more famous places like Venice, Padova, Bologna, Vicenza, even Rimini – but prices are considerably lower in Ferrara. So, its the best place to live and start daily excursions to the other cities around even by train (i.e. no hastle with parking and highway traffic).
Only "disadvantage": the Hotel is a "looong" 10 and 15 minutes walk (luckily in the same direction) away from 2 of the best Gelaterie (ice makers) I know in the norther half of Italy: La Romana and Gelateria Ariosto – and I know and tested a few hundred of them in 25 years ;-)
