Princess Art Hotel, hotel in Ferrara

Located in Ferrara, Princess Art Hotel offers air-conditioned accommodations, 2461 feet from Este Castle. Ferrara Cathedral is a 10-minute walk away.

Princess Art Hotel is a little gem. The room was a combination of historic and comfort. The view looking over the garden was charming and the room was quiet. You are able to rent bikes on-sight which was very convenient. The breakfast was scrumptious and two blocks down is gelato, a few outside bar/cafes and restaurants. The location was perfect both for riding the town wall and walking to the sites downtown. Finally- the front desk staff were amazingly friendly and helpful!

FAQs about hotels in Ferrara






A Renaissance Rival to Florence

Ferrara was a haven for the arts during the Renaissance and much of this is still evident today. The powerful Este family held court in the multi-turreted Estense Castle, protected by a moat and drawbridge, and they were illustrious patrons of artists and authors.

Bellini, Piero della Francesca and Titian all perfected their strokes here, and the university houses parts of Ludovico Ariosto’s original manuscript of his epic poem – Orlando Furioso – containing allegorical references to his sponsors. The family is also depicted in Palazzo Schifanoia’s detailed fresoces, and the Palazzo dei Diamanti gallery displays works commissioned from the School of Ferrara.

Some Este tombs are in Corpus Domini Monastery and another is in the ornate cathedral whose three-gabled façade overlooks the crenellated town hall. Both line Piazza di Trento e Trieste, the main square where locals come to socialise. Another popular square is green Piazza Ariostea.

The Este strengthened their position through marriage alliances with the influential Borgia, Medici and Gonzaga families, but they didn’t have it all their own way. Ferrara’s well-preserved city walls were built for defence, and ardent opponent of the Renaissance, Savonarola, was born in this UNESCO World Heritage city.

Surrounding cobbled streets house many luxury Ferrara hotels, cheap apartments and B&Bs near the train station, available on Booking.com.

    An old walled town with an amazing Castle and a great art gallery (on a par with Bologna). A day trip to Comacchio and Ravenna is about 200km and well worth taking the time to see the Po Estuary and the Ravenna mosaics. I hired a car from Morini for Euro 45 and 15 for fuel. Hire a bike and view the palaces and museums as well as ride around the outside of the town walls.

    We spent 2 days and nights in Ferrara and it was a rewarding visit. If you are going to stay in Ferrara, we highly recommend Triquetra - rooms for rent for location, value, cleanliness, comfort, the "coffee room" and especially the host Antonino. The town has numerous sites & museums which are almost all included in the MyFerrara pass which, for 22 euro a person for 3 days and 2 nights, also covers your city tax of 1.5 euro p.p. a day (after a little paperwork at the B&B). The medieval streets of the old town are interesting to wander in - they have a very 'real' feel. Sightseeing highlights are climbing the Lions Tower in the Castle, the Palazzo Schifanoia, Casa Romei and the Archaeological Museum. Also the small Cathedral museum for it's collection of scribed and illuminated texts. Unfortunately the cathedral is under heavy renovation at the moment so it's difficult to see much. For dinner, you must try Osteria I Quattro Angeli on the square behind the castle - get the lamb chops (if you eat lamb chops)...amazing. Also, very nice service staff.

    While definitely secondary to to the larger cities of Bologna and Verona (the two main cities on my itinerary), Ferrara is also worth visiting for a day or so. (I can't compare it to Parma or other similar-sized cities in the vicinity unfortunately.) It has an attractive historical centre that's nice to walk around. The main attraction is the castle, which is a museum, but there are other worthwhile museums in the city. Particularly Palazzo Schifanoia, with its impressive frescos. And the long alleys of the old Jewish quarter were interesting.

    Located just opposite the train station. Perfect for us as we were travelling each day by train. It was about a 10-15 minute walk from town, although plenty of buses during the day (not so good at night). Restaurants can be busy in Ferrara, so suggest booking for the evening. Hotel very clean and recently refurbished. Friendly and helpful staff - especially the guy running the bar.

    This is a lovely, well-furnished apartment within walking distance of most Ferrara attractions. The kitchen is more than adequate, the beds comfortable and the apartment was full of light from both windows and sky lights. The hosts made helpful recommendations about where to eat and what to see. They offered to book a taxi for us. We would easily choose to stay here again.
