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.
