“Great Hotel Near Modena Center”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

American Tourists will appreciate this pretty and well-restored noble house. Parking is free, and available, so no worries there. You'll need a car as the hotel is located about 10 minutes outside the historic center, but certainly easy to navigate and parking near the center was not an issue. Being outside the city was also a bonus to access some of the excellent restaurants that were off the beaten path. Definitely try out Franceschetta and L'antica Grama if you stay here. You won't be disappointed.

Back to the hotel. Rooms were typically small, but not impossibly so. Wifi was included and easy to connect. Breakfast was included and really well done. Perfect cappuccino and espresso, cakes and tarts, meats and cheeses, freshly squeezed juices. The staff was genuinely friendly and accommodating, both during the day and at night. Dinner recommendations, directions, and most of the staff spoke nearly perfect English, and understood my butchered Italian.

Bottom Line: Don’t let the location dissuade you from staying here if you have a car. It’s a lovely location just close enough to the center to ensure a pleasant stay in the Modena area.

The Hotel Castello is a really nice Hotel located near the city of Modena.
The Hotel looks like a castle and I loved the style of the hotel, which was also the reason why we booked it. I´d go there defenetly again.
The staff was really great (one guy, he spoke german was great - I think his name was Marco) and friendly and was very helpful. The had great ideas about having dinner around and send us to a great place. They spoke german, english and of course italian ;)
The rooms were nice, big enough and the beds good to stay.
The breakfast was very nice as well - I would go there again !!!!
The WIFI is for free and good working. Parking is available directly at the hotel - no problems regarding space!
GREAT HOTEL - good price !!

Very nice room in a very nice building, rich breakfast, Jacuzzi outside, hidden relax space among the trees. And close enough to city center (need for car however...). Just one night there, we loved it.

My wife & I arrived wet & tired after 3 hours on a motorcycle in the rain - we were warmly welcomed and settled into our room very efficiently. The hotel looks like a castle and the rooms are comfortable. It is ideally located just outside Modena and 20 mins from both the Lamborghini & Ferrari factories / museums. No restaurant, but the friendly staff can offer nearby recommendations or even dial for a take away pizza. Highly recommended.

We booked this hotel with our two teenagers as we had a prior booking @ the Lamborghini factory (20 minutes away) so very convenient. It is also 5 minutes from the centre of Modena.
The Hotel is relatively new and designed to resemble an Italian castle.The rooms were great and Francesca the receptionist was particularly helpful. We had a great stay and our only negative really was in mid summer we would have liked a pool, instead of the 2 jacuzzis they have outside.
The Trattoria down the road was excellent too.

We stayed there on July 19 on our way through Italy. Comfortable, everything worked well and the personnel were really friendly and helpful. The breakfast outside in the seating area was a real treat. We were recommended a restaurant for dinner in Modena which was quality and lived up to the comments of the hotel. A place to remember and to stay again.

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 :)
