I was lucky enough to get an upgrade, so technically speaking I was no longer in the Hotel ABC, but a sister hotel across the courtyard which has four stars not three. They share the same breakfast room and I think reception area. A very nice, quiet room, good breakfast. It is a ten minute walk from the main tourist sights in the centre of the city, but it is straight across the street from the railway station. I arrived in the morning, dropped my bags, wandered around all day and had dinner, then came back to the hotel and crossed the street to leave the following morning, so the distance was not a problem. Had I been in Mantua for four or five days I might have gotten tired of walking back and forth
The beds are comfy, breakfast is plentiful. the internet is intermittent. Fridge does not work. The hotel is a little tired and functions more to french business men. Its right in the centre of town and is surrounded by good food.
I give 2 stars because the room was clean and bed was comfortable, BUT the walls are thin as paper. We could hear people talking, having sex, peeing and pooping/farting. When they flushed, it sounded like they were in our bathroom so we didn't get much sleep after long day of sightseeing. In the end, 70€ per night is waaaay too expencive for this hotel.
Better hotel than I expected seeing the photos. The room was really ok and even if I booked a single, I got a double for two nights (more space!). I was arriving by train, so the location was perfect as it is exactly opposite the station. The centre and Palazzo Te are around a 15/20 minute walk from there (each in opposite directions). It's not a complicated walk and it's a beautiful one as well. The price was also more affordable than right in the historic area. On arrival there were two women on the reception desk. The older one was serious and not very welcoming, but the younger was very nice and took me to my room. Good thing because it wasn't easy to find. I was in the 1st floor and had to go across a patio (with tables where you could sit and next to another parking patio) and then go up on the lift and through a corridor with a few steps. Like I said, the room is basic, but has everything you can need: big bed (as I got a double), safe, small fridge (with water bottles, but wasn't sure if those were included), TV, air conditioned, telephone, a chair, a desk, a big mirror, hangers and a drawer (but not a real wardrobe) and plugs nearby the bed. The toilet was small but had what I needed: a shower cabinet (nice hot water), toiletries, soft towels, loo, basin, a stool, hair dryer and tissues. Everything clean and no problem at all with anything. My room was quiet, the bed was comfy, so had some good hours of sleep. Also, the receptionist saved my suitcase on the last day (although they save the suitcases right at the reception and you get no receipt for it. I just came back and took it, so felt a bit unsafe). On the negatives, not many. Mainly that I couldn't make the wi-fi work. Also that there was a thick curtain and blind, but still there was light in the room. Thankfully I travel with a mask, so it wasn't a real problem. I didn't try the breakfast, so can't give an opinion. So in general, a nice hotel for a good price and great location. I certainly would go back again!…
Went to Mantova for just 1 night as I was traveling with a friend. The staff was super nice. We call and they offered us a better price Han what we saw online. The hotel is divided up in a weird way, but the rooms we had was very spacious, we got upgraded to a triple room. The hotel is in front of the train station, but we were at the back side so did not hear any noise. It was a nice 10 minute stroll into town so great location, and did not cost as much as the hotels in town Just a great hotel, nothing fancy, nothing spectacular but great for our needs. Oh yes there was also an inside parking, I think at 10€ per night which was an added plus for us.
