Be careful out there ...
Terrific apartment. Main door opens to Via Garibaldi, so from that point onward be careful. Cyclists everywhere in Ferrara, and they give themselves priority over pedestrians. You are responsible for not just straying into their path. Seriously. Other than that, Ferrara was wonderful. And this apartment places you within a half-hour walk of everything, including the train station for day trips (Venice is 1h20m away, Padua 50m, Bologna 35m). Price on this apartment is a value. It's clean, spacious, comfortable. But it can be chilly. We were there in mid-October and night temps were down into the 40s. There appeared to be a window a/c-heat unit combo, but it was impossible to figure it out. Needs some instructions. Doris, the owner, is friendly and was there soon after we at the main door. Her English is limited, and sometimes a response from her took time by text/email. We had no emergencies, but one time we did have a question about the dishwasher and it took a while. No big deal. We would stay here again without hesitation. If you are American or English, be aware that English-speaking Italians are hard to find. My wife studied Duolingo for months and I focused on the Foreign Language Institute free online manuals, so we felt comfortable with basic conversation.
thank you for the review is true I do not speak English, the dishwasher wanted the pads, and not the liquid detergent but nothing happened, thanks to your patience and I hope to still have my guests while studying English a good greeting Doris
Beautiful, quiet apartment
We stayed in Ferrrara for six days in the apartment and took Day trips all over the area. The apartment was extremely comfortable for the two of us. I think it would have been cramped had we been four.
Doris was a wonderful host and kept in touch during our stay in Ferrara.
The apartment was very clean and everything worked as described.
Ferrara is a great town with many restaurants and great shops.
The only inconvenience was that the wifi was very weak and we could not easily get on line.
gentili ospiti la rete WIFI delle volte èn debole , è un servizio che il nostro cumune da alla città , ho già provveduto con un moden VODAFONE cosi ci si può allacciare a INTERNET FELOCEMENTE , la cosa a cui tengo di più è la pulizia della casa e che il cliente trovi l,appartamento come è descritto sui i portali,.mi piace dedicare agli ospiti in arrivo tempo per le prime necessità .
Doris's flat is in the perfect location to visit Ferrara being very central. Doris was the ideal host and sorted any questions or queries we had very quickly and efficiently. The flat is well appointed is well equipped and has everything you would need. The public Wifi arrangements is very similar to other Italian cities and is not a problem as the bar literally next door has free wifi if you cannot connect. With two teenage children children addicted to their phones, we didn't find this a problem at all. With fantastic culture, art, food and laid back vibe, we cannot wait to return....thank you Doris
Good central location
The apartment is located in the centre of Ferrara within easy walking distance of many of the sights. The apartment backs onto a very quiet courtyard so there is no noise from traffic. Apartment is well furnished - good quality bed and sofabed, and with its high ceilings has a nice atmosphere. Our only criticism is that the apartment is described as two bedroom, it is not - it has one large bedroom (with air conditioning) and one room that combines living room, kitchen and a sofabed (without air conditioning). This may not be too problematic as the sofabed is comfortable and there is a toilet adjacent to the room with the sofabed (the bedroom has an en suite bathroom). It worked out fine for us as we all had the same sleeping times but could be a problem for some groups.
We enjoyed our stay there and would recommend it.
Great location, very good apt for two
We stayed there 8 days and were very happy. The location in a pedestrian area is excellent , near shops, restaurants , the castle and cathedral. All the interesting sights are within walking distance and the tourist office with good advice and maps is very close right inside the castle courtyard. We bought a multi day pass for the museums etc, which was great value.
The apartment is really a one bedroom, 1 1/2 bathrooms. It would not suit two couples.The kitchen is pretty well equipped with 3 gas burners, a toaster oven, and a small refrigerator. We cooked many of our meals there.
There is a combination washer and dryer in the 1/2 bathroom. The apartment building has an elevator, and the locks are good so it is very secure. The location is quiet because our windows (which open) face onto a grass courtyard.
Doris lives nearby and is very cheerful and helpful. Her niece Emilia speaks very good English.
We very much enjoyed our stay there and Ferrara is still quite unspoiled by too much tourism.
sono molto felice che Ellen ,abbia avuto un ottimo soggiorno a casa duchesse , io e mia nipote Emilia , piace coccolare i nostri clienti , ferrara è una piccola città , e noi in poco tempo quando ci chiamano andiamo sempre di persona . Emilia sta finendo la scuola arte e turismo ed è sempre felice di dialogare con i nostri clienti
5 star central, comfortable flat
Doris was an excellent host, very freindly and helpful. The flat is very clean comfortable all mod cons, spacious and luxurious. Full of light and tranquil as it looks out onto a lovely garden with a 200 year old plane tree, and lots of birds, you can visit and sit in the garden. The flat couldn't be more central, just a few steps from the Duomo and castle. There is a supermarket across the road and the amazing Slurp pizzeria next door - best pizza I've ever had anywhere! Don't miss the Palazzo Schifanoia with it's amazing fresco of the months - a real gem. If you like Greek vases you can't miss the archeological museum, world class collection.
The apartment is located in the center of Ferrara just a short distance from the main monuments : Castello Estense , the Cathedral , the municipal square , Piazza Trento Trieste , the palace of diamonds , 50 meters away is the parking of via Cortevecchia payment, in the evening and Sunday is free to get there from via Spadari , turn left because borgoricco
