Great hotel in charming setting

Posted Jul 23, 2015
Pros: Quirky, food and bar
Cons: Air conditioning
Location: City and walking/cycle tracks great
Excellent quiet location set away from the city with vineyard views. Outstanding restaurant and character bar - wonderful prices after the bigger cities. Hotel and rooms a little quirky in a good way - only downside is lack of air conditioning when 25C (80F) at night. Easy walk or cycle into town. Secure location to leave cars while exploring city. Great staff - even without English menu and limited English with waiter he ascertained what we wanted, liked and delivered accordingly. Watch for Mosquitos although hotel pays attention to this.

Fabulous place to stay in Ferrara.

Posted May 30, 2015
Beautiful semi-rural location within the city walls. Short walk (15 mins) to city centre. Smart, clean, comfortable, ultra-modern rooms. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Good restaurant within lovely outside dining spot. One of the nicest places we've ever stayed.

Restful and just outside the town center

Posted May 29, 2013 on Hotels
Found Principessa Pio on an Internet search of places in Ferrara. The photos looked great, but they frequently do, while the places often fail to live up to them. Not so in this case. The Pio has just a few rooms along with a restaurant in a recently renovated barn. The fit and finish are of a very high order with a minimal aesthetic throughout. Our room was spacious and relatively inexpensive. The restaurant is quite good and reasonable, and draws a number of people each evening. It is about a 20 minute bike ride from the station, in the northeast corner of Ferrara on a property where various fruits and vegetables are grown, the very ones you will have for breakfast or dinner. We were looking for a quiet, low intensity visit, and it was perfect for that. Bikes were also provided to get around town or to circumnavigate Ferrara's wall/parks. Grazie, Federico!

Antico fienile totalmente rinnovato, nel verde

Posted Oct 11, 2017
Ottima struttura: camere estremamente minimal, ma pulite e confortevoli, letto comodissimo e bagno con una doccia grandissima. Il ristorante propone un’ottima scelta di piatti della tradizione locale con l’aggiunta del tocco personale dello chef. Soggiorno breve ma estremamente piacevole, senza dubbio torneremo alla prima occasione

Puristic design

Posted Jul 18, 2017
Pros: Perfect location, very quiet, nice shower.
Cons: No suggestions.
Location: Within walking distance to all the main Ferrara sites.
This converted country farmhouse is located in a vast park area, between two cemeteries and the Ferrara wall. You feel like you are on a country estate, but the city is in walking distance.

Hotel avec beaucoup de charme .

Très bon sejour à Ferrara . Possibilité de louer facilement des velos sur place pour aller au centre ville . Restaurant très agreable le soir encore mieux surement en été . Pas trop loin non plus pour aller découvrir le parc naturel du Delta du Pô .
