The lady on reception was excellent at looking after our dining needs. She recommended a few excellent restaurants. The breakfast was very good value and the room was crisp and clean with a modern touch in the design. Excellent location to most local attractions.
Just a couple of minus points. Rooms were very dark due to the location near the main road so the external shutters were never opened. There was also no parking facility for what is a decent quality hotel.

Room tip: Try and avoid main roadside

We enjoyed our one night stay at Hotel Principe. It's a very short distance from the train station and the city-centre is not too far either. The staff were friendly and cheerful. As we'd arrived fairly early by train, they had a look if our room was available and let us to check-in without any fuss. The room was comfortable and cozy, we had everything we needed. Highly recommended!

Decent hotel, nice staff, our room did not have the modern furniture shown in the website pictures, but it was a nice room, high ceilings, good air conditioning, decent breakfast and within walking distance to Ferrari museum. No complaints.

Dear Silwitz,

We are in a strategic position, just a step away from the Ferrari Museum.
We are happy to announce that from the 20th August all rooms have a modern furniture, so we really hope to welcome back in the future to see our renovation!

We were anticipating better for a 4 star hôtel.
We got a room for disabled (don’t know why) that was not clean (web), no shower curtain, set-up for one person occupancy while we booked double for a couple. When we mentioned about the missing glass, we got it delivered to our room one hour later.
Wifi and AC worked fine, but for the rest I would rate this hotel as a 3 star, not more.
Ok for one-night stay, not more. You can park around the hotel.

Situated near the station and easy walking distance of the centre.
Modena is good for the Ferrari museum and easy drive from all the other car places ( lambo etc )
Parking is on street and you get given a card to display in the window of the car.
No onsite restaurant, there is an affiliated one near by which the reception will hard sell you.
No discount though as an Hotel guest, just friends recommending friends......,,
Not many other choices nearby, except in the centre.
There is a McDonald's in the station but the area is not too pleasant after dark.
Apparently you get a welcome drink at 6pm, well I arrived at 8 30 pm and as I went for a meal assumed I would be offered it the next evening ....er no.
The receptionist was ok but not great. The guy later in the week was better.
Breakfast is a buffet style and pretty good, the staff just let you get on with it and probably acknowledge you, not much conversation was said
Rooms are clean but could do with a repaint.
Don't forget to keep some money aside for the city tax by the way!

I hired a Fiat 500 and was quite good enough, cheap and easy to park etc as remember the parking places are still small suited to the original Fiat 500.. and the driving is crazy crazy.. Mama Mia !

Dear Faderman,

Modena is well-known as the land of motors: numerous racing car stables established in the town at the beginning of the XX century and many of them would become famous all over the world, such as Ferrari, Maserati, Stanguellini, De Tomaso, Pagani.
We offer a free ticket to park nearby the hotel to leave the car and enjoy the city on foot.
We suggest Ristorante Damedeo to enjoy the typical cuisine of the territory: cold cuts, homemade pasta, the boiled and roasted meat selection and the sweety dessert trolley!
The staff is our strenght point who work very hard to ensure our guests have a pleasant experience.
Thanks for your feedback!

Best Regards,
Isabella
