The Estense is an excellent choice when visiting Modena. It has an old-world elegance and charm, and wonderful, friendly and helpful staff. We spent one night there driving south from northern Italy to Rome at the end of August, and for 120 euros had a large double room, generous bath and a rich and varied breakfast. Could not have asked for more. I was amazed at the variety of bathroom toiletries (who gives you toothbrushes, sewing kits and shoecleaners anymore?). We were driving, so the parking lot behind the hotel was a deal-breaker for us. From there we visited the two Ferrari Museums the next day, and had a fabulous dinner at nearby Al Cenacolo. I enthusiastically recommend Hotel Estense and hope to return!.
Some other commenters have criticized the hotel (the furnishings specifically) as being old fashioned or out of date. We enjoyed the old world elegance and family feel.
I could pay im cash and was allowed to allocate my car in the parking facility longer my check out time!!
The hotel is run down, but a simple upgrade of the bedspreads could really perk the place up. Underneath, it was actually a great hotel for good value. The breakfast was among the best in all of Italy!
The staff could use some more training in customer service. The check in guy was ok, but the check out guy was incredibly rude and started fighting with me over the price I was quoted on my booking (as though it were my fault!) - completely unprofessional. And the lady in the breakfast room seemed like we were bothering her when we asked for anything.
The restaurant attached to the hotel was very good and the off-street parking was convenient.
The location was a little removed from the center. I did not feel very safe walking around in the evening. The room was a little stark and the carpets were out-dated.
Quite and comfortable with a good breakfast.
