This property is amazing! We stayed here for four night and Salvatore and his family were gracious hosts. Wonderful views of the sea and hillside.
Great place for a base camp.

The meals were incredible!

Room Tip: A little off the beaten path but great property to have a base camp.

The hotel is perfect if you need to be on a flight. The rooms are nice and clean and the staff are really nice and helpful! The staff even drove us to the pharmacy when my girlfriend was sick and needed antibiotics, he even came in and helped translate what we needed to buy.

We stayed at Antico Casale while attending a book fair in Bologna, and booked based upon reviews on this site. The hotel fairly clean, but that is all. Rooms are ok, but pretty uncomfortable. At 100 euro/night (almost $140 USD!!), it is a rip off.

Firstly, beware that it is NOT 25 minutes to/from Bologna - it is almost an hour, and that is if you do not get lost as the turn off from the highway is very poorly marked, and there are a lot of twists and turns to get to the hotel...which is also poorly signed. Prepare to be confused and frustrated at best, and lost, going round & round in circles at worst.

2nd - the staff at the hotel may as well work at an office. Their view is that you are there to sleep and pay, and not bug them for anything beyond that. There is only one person on site at anytime, no one after 11pm, and they do not speak English (which was ok with me as i a managed in Italian).

One day we missed breakfast, and when we asked for tea & a croissant an hour later, the same person who would have made the same cup of tea and served the exact same croissant (that was lying on the same platter and place as for breakfast an hour earlier) had the nerve to CHARGE US FOR IT!!

Then, when we slept late (due to jet lag) and left the room at 11:55, they charged us for cleaning the room, as cleaning staff apparently only work till 12!!! And when we protested the charges upon check-out, all of the sudden there where 3 people at reception, all arguing with us. When we flat out refused to pay for the cleaning, the woman at reception threw the differance in cash at us, while her daughter called us 'uneducated' over and over again. We were in shock - we thought we were being resonable by even being willing to pay for the tea & croissant that was supposed to be included in our room rate!! We thanked them and left, never to cross that threshold again. And all this when the hotel was empty apart from us.

This place is in the middle of nowhere, not worth the money, and pretty depressing overall. There are better, really charming places to stay in the region....

The hotel was set in beautiful grounds. The staff were excellent, very friendly and helpful - checked with the excellent restaurant next door to see what vegeatarian meals were offered. The room we had was terrific and the breakfast was brilliant, infact the best coffee I have tasted this year! and oh the cakes....

My wife, two kids and I stayed at Antico Casale for three nights. Excellent pick. Even though it is not in town, the style and charme of the hotel compensate for the 10-minutes drive to Ferrara. More, we used it as a base for other nice excursions to Comacchio, Pomposa, Ravenna. A real plus of the place is the kindness of the family who owns and runs the hotel. Don't miss the morning homemade cakes! Their marvellous smell invades the hotel every night contributing to the magic of the place. The nearby restaurant Spirito is also recommended.
