Well located for the historic centre of Ferrara. In need of some updating and renovation, to the extent that it is a bit of a stretch to classify it 4 Star.

Perfect location
Fantastic location, literally opposite the castle. Ferrara is walkable and this is a perfect location. Good breakfast, which one can eat under a glass canopy in the open air. Modern stylish hotel. The rooms are less upmarket than the lobby area.
Covered outdoor eating area
The castle, just a cross from the hotel

Not Mecure standards
Not sure if this is really a Mecure Hotel, front entrance blocked off, side entrance only with no clear signage, no WiFi the whole 24 hours we were there, they reset modem at front desk several times but no luck, they told me to call back if issues continue. Sadly the phone did not work, for an international chain no foreign TV stations just Italian ? On the paper in the room it does say BBC & CNN but they are not to be found. Pay for parking pass than you go out roam the streets for blue lined parking spaces ? All in all. Not a Mercure property ! We have stayed in several around the world but this one did not meet up to expectations.

L’hôtel est très bien situé . Le seul inconvénient c’est le stationnement. Il fallait trouver un parking sur la rue aux alentours de l’hôtel.
