Smack on Piazza Sordello means there isn’t a better located hotel in the city. Our room was perfect. Very spacious with a big bathroom and best of all, a stunning view over the piazza. Staff were very helpful and courteous. Only fault, lack of decent curtains. Must be a British thing!

This hotel is very well located near the Piazza Sordello in the center of Mantova. Spacious but rather simple room with everything you want. Good breakfast in the restaurant downstairs with views over the Piazza. Fiendly staff.

The Hotel was very well equipped for a large group, we were 26. They could even organize a dinner, local delicacies, at a short notice. The rooms were pleasant, at the main square. We were on the fourth floor, no noise.

The only challenge for some were a small lift, and still you might need to take a few steps down or up to reach your room.

The bus driver could take us by the lake, behind Palazzo Ducale, and we needed to drag the luggage across the cobbled square. This, however, is a challenge in most historic towns, you cannot drive with a big vehicle to the door. On our way back the hotel receptionist was able to call a taxi to drive some of the ladies who had trouble with the luggage.

Excellent location for the sights.

Dear piriot,
thank you for your review and kind words.

We are usually chosen by the agencies to accomodate adult's groups because of our location and rooms with the view. As the historical city centre can be a challenge - as you say -, we usually offer a porterage service - payable, to be booked in advance - and there is also the possibility to make the bus stop near the Duomo, thus closer to the hotel than the lakeside stop.

Looking forward to your next trip to Mantova,
Best regards

We chose this hotel because of the central location. This is in a traffic-restricted area so you need to find parking out of the zone or buy a ticket or get a fine mailed to your home address in several months! We were traveling with 2 adults & 2 kids. As you can see in the photos, there were 4 Twin beds pushed together, the mattresses were springy and the decor was sparse. Our room overlooked the piazza which was beautiful during the day but for travel weary kids, not the best to be above at night. There are no room darkening shades, and the room was sunny at the crack of dawn (not a great thing when you’ve just travelled for 20 hours & crossed time zones). The elevator broke while we were inside of it and luckily, I was able to pry the doors open before we got stuck. Seemingly, this is a routine occurrence. Take the stairs! Upon our departure, we were given a typical Sbrisolona which made a nice snack on the next part of our road trip.

A great little hotel right on the central piazza. Our room was basic but clean. Staff were helpful and breakfast more substantial and higher quality than many in Italy. Our room looked over the square with the market and many bars and restaurants. Easy walking for all the sights. Parking is a total nightmare as usual in Italian towns. The hotel is in a restricted zone but it is possible to park here with a special ticket which you get from the hotel. Costs just 2.60euro but the problem is finding a space. Loads of restaurants around the square but I recommend heading down the back streets to find a local place. We had a terrible experience in a restaurant opposite hotel. Mantova is an interesting and beautiful town. Flat shoes essential for walking on cobbled streets.
