OMG! If you want to get away from tourists or just a bit if time back to reality this is the place!
Not only is it situated in a quiet area but the rooms are really cute!
It's about a 10-15€taxi trip from the centre of Modena.
The owners were so accommodating and lovely. Even when we spent an hour in the jacuzzi the owners came out and ordered our drinks.
They made a fantastic recommendation for dinner at "da Danilo". They rang and made a booking for us and called the cab so we could drink.
The rooms were lovely and if you get too cold there are blankets in the cupboard.
If I had to pick at something it would have to be the water pressure in the shower. We stayed in the newer part on the 1st floor in 149 and the pressure was poor.
However, the other positive thing was breakfast. It was tasty and if you like hot chocolate and have tried the Max Brenner chain stores in Australia it was thick hot chocolate. So good!
The staff were so lovely and we highly recommend you give it a go.

We are considering coming back through here on our way back up to North Italy :)

This hotel is I an old castle on the outskirts of Modena. A nice big bedroom & spacious bathroom. One of the best breakfasts experience in our 2 wks driving around Italy.

You need a car to stay at this hotel - we found driving into Modena & parking more difficult than expected.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Castello with 3 other friends in May for 4 nights. We could not have been more pleased with this charming former country home of a noble family which has been converted into a unique hotel. The professional service, beautiful accommodations, bountiful buffet breakfast, quiet and serene location (a short drive from Modena), and certainly the very modest price all contributed to making our stay there so enjoyable and relaxing.

The perfect hoteliers – Federica and Roberto – addressed our every need and took care of all our requests. In addition to providing beautiful accommodations and an excellent breakfast each day, they also recommended nearby local restaurants (there is no restaurant onsite), helped with our garden picnic on the hotel grounds, and prepared an early breakfast on the day we departed.

I highly recommend this beautiful hotel with its welcoming staff. The added bonus was watching the fireflies appear while taking an evening walk in the countryside.

In May 2014 my wife and I spent five days in this lovely hotel. Quiet, clean, good price and last but not least EXTREMELY FRIENDLY STAFF!! Our room was in the "dependance" building because in this section elevator is available (attentive staff thought we are old and have difficulty to bring luggage to upper floors in the castle building), The room was absolutely clean, comfortable, with balcony to the garden, bathroom is new, decoration is tasteful, WiFi operates non-stop free. But the point is the STAFF. Receptonist Anna, Marco, allround Frederica, Roberto, the coffe shop staff (two ever smiling girls)....these people made our stay unforgettable.Sitting in one of the gazebos and having a bunch of fresh strawberry what Roberto so politely prepared for us or having a good wine there....these are the human gestures what we never forget. Thanks folks for all of the lovely moments. If celestal authorities will allow we will return. By the way... the hotel is easily accessible from the Autostrada Bologna-Milano (Exit Modena Sud) but when you are approaching to MOD, at the Agip station on your left, whatch the hotel sign on the right and take a VERY sharp right turn to reach the hotel. (I missed). Frederica: you would need a better sign to post (maybe a bigger early warning sign).
Sincerely recommanded for everybody. (Breakfast with the tons of lovely Parma proscuitto and other goodies is another speciality). Try it! Fred and Angela Horchler

A beautiful hotel, a former castle, in a quiet area with big room, antique furniture, balcony and excellent breakfast, all for 60 Euros. Superb! Guests cannot dine in the hotel, but there is an excellent restaurant within walking distance.

I stayed at this hotel about 3 months ago with my wife, my son and my mother in law. We are from Australia, and had been travelling all over Italy visiting relatives in various parts of the country. We only stayed for one night, but could have easily stayed for much longer.

This is a boutique hotel located a short drive from the middle of the town of Modena. It was perfect for us. The rooms were clean and pleasent, the staff were helpful, and we used the lounge/bar area in the evening which was great. The breakfast was not extensive, but very nice, and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

We would happily reccomend this place to family and friends and return again when next in that part of the world.

Conveniently located near the autostrata, offers a good break when travelling. The room, a family suite, was great, clean and very large. The staff are very friendly and the breakfast is great. There is also guarded parking for the car. Very reasonably priced.
