Avoid this place unless you like being insulted and defamed by incompetent management. The hotel location is great but that's as good as it gets. The rooms look like they haven't been decorated since the Allies last liberated this place. Room was very noisy too. Breakfast is really average and staff are surly and rude. We were in the best suite they have and it was shockingly bad so heaven help you if you are in one of their normal rooms. I imagine that, since this review is critical, there will soon be a totally false and defamatory management response beneath it. I almost feel sorry for them because they will likely be out of business soon since very few people will be travelling to this region right now.

Really disappointed with this hotel. Service was shocking. Breakfast was poor and the waitresses were surly. However, special mention needs to be made of the hopeless receptionist. She was incompetent and rude with terrible attitude. This place really needs to refresh the faded decor but more importantly to get rid of some of the awful staff.

Dear Mr Colin, I am the manager and owner of the Hotel Posta. I am absolutely surprised about your review and also really angry! you have reserved for your one night stay, two standard rooms and one economy double room (the cheapest!). at your arrival we have offered three complimentary up gradings to one suite and two junior suites and you thank you a lot my front desk manager for this special offer. You were surprised and happy and you have transfered your sentiment to my employee, then it has happened something with the restaurant that is not our direct fault. you have asked us at 8.45 p.m. to reserve a table in a restaurant for 6 people. friday evening is clearly all fully booked and more difficult especially for a party of six people!!! but the restarant attendant told us that one table could be left and you could wait until the time it was available. They didn't specify how long but you decided that it could be good to go and wait and may be drink a glass of wine. Then it is no more our problem. we have offered you a service but we can't be responsible for other activities. you can't offend my employees especially if they are polite, elegant and professional. V. (my employee) is really quiet and respectuful and she didn't offend or she didn't gave bad information. If we read other reviews all of them speaks about TOP service, staff Helpfull and really polite. the opposite you have found. I am sorry but I consider my Hotel not like your idea. I accept critical reviews if they are truth and not accept bad people. This Hotel need certainly to avoid guests like you. Rude, messy and arrogant. You have also left rooms in terrible condition and really dirty!! unrespecteful for chambermaids. if you consider to change your idea and cancel this review I will be happy to share a new experience with us. Regards, Umberto Sidoli (direzione@hotelposta.re.it).

We enjoyed immersing ourselves into the pace of life in Reggio Emilia using Hotel Posta as our base for a week. The hotel is on the square directly across from the clock tower, so all of the city is just a few minutes walk away. Our room was a little dated, but the bathroom was newly renovated and the wifi worked well. The city was just getting ready for Christmas and our window offered a view of the square and all its activity. The hotel has limited on site parking for 12 euros per day with a reservation. They also offer a city tag for you to place on your dashboard that allows free parking in designated spaces within the historic center. We did this and had no problems with the car. They have very nice common areas and the breakfast buffet was very extensive and good.

Luckily the hotel has a talented employee who drove our car into the hotels limited car park through very narrow arches. Would highly recommend this help and also arrive early to get a space! Valeria was so welcoming and helpful on reception- always smiling! Our suite was old style but very comfortable. Loved the light and noise blackout blinds. We overlooked the square, above a bar and over a side street- room 108- can imagine it gets very noisy in summer. Breakfast was ok - quite average- but loved the Parmesan and meats. Scrambled egg had sat for quite some time over heat. Good tea selection and freshly made cappuccino was very nice. Reggio is a great town to explore on foot but beware of many bicycles!

In this historical building, dating back to the 14th century where the 'capitano del popolo' usied to live rooms are clean and spacious. Breakfast is outstanding with the best croissant you have ever tried as they are hand made and baked in the hotel freshly every morning. Staff in kind and location is perfect.
