    « Nice hotel »

    The hotel is really nice the staf is friendly and helpful, the location its not the best but you have the train station not far away. At my room i had to have all the windows closed because i had a parking lot on front so it felt like i didn't had any windows even the person who cleaned the room closed them.

    « 3 night holiday stop »

    Ultra modern hotel in very old building. If arriving by car, stop on main road outside hotel (no off road parkin), they will assist with offload. Some unguarded parking available, also some secure garage parking - but be sure to pre book either. Ideal location (within ten minutes easy stroll) for visiting Ferrari museum (where you can also book and catch shuttle bus to Maranello Museum, and also Pavarotti House/museum visit; you can pre-book the tickets for all these museums and the shuttle bus on-line beforehand, one day encompasses all three with ease) . No more than 15 minutes stroll from city centre with its cathedral and other attractions. Ten minutes easy walk from railway station. Hotel staff very good, full luggage assistance, room excellent in all respects. Hotel restaurant is in separate building next door, and is shared with their sister hotel two doors down the road. Restaurant only open lunch and evenings - reservation is probably good idea. Food, service and ambience is very good, and reasonably priced. Bar in hotel is also very good, modern, comfortable. Breakfast is in hotel and reasonably good spread buffet - cold of course! Can recommend this hotel without reservation for Modena short breaks. (It is incidentally also used by Ferrari as accommodation for dealer conventions etc being held at the Museum. Also close to the Maserati HQ (shop but no visits), and within easy reach of Lamborghini museum (and if you are really lucky you can pre-book a factory tour there also, if booked well in advance)).

    « Nice hotel, just make sure you don't forget anything »

    Was a decent hotel with nice facilities. However, the problems began some days later when I realised I'd forgotten my jacket. I contacted the hotel and was happy to hear that the jacket had been found. As a frequent international traveller (I have Diamond status with Best Western), I have left items in hotels occasionally, but each time the hotel has always shipped the item back to me at their cost, as a goodwill gesture. On this occasion, not only was this not the case, but the hotel insisted on using a courier at a cost of 50 Euro (the package was a kilo at most). When I questioned why the cost was so high, the hotel told me they would have to send it where I would pay for the package on arrival (Cash On Delivery). I asked if I could leave a credit card with them over the phone which they could use to secure the postage costs against, they refused, but eventually offered to use the normal post (rather than specialist courier), to send the item. They assured me the cost would therefore be 25 Euro. I was quite unhappy with this since a 1 Kg item certainly does not even cost 25 Euro to send, but I had no choice if I wanted my jacket back, and at least the price was no longer 50 Euro. When I eventually received the item the cost was 40 Euro; 25 for the delivery cost and 15 because they selected Cash On Delivery!! I simply could not believe it! They basically made it clear they did not trust me to pay for the delivery (hence they used the expensive cash on delivery method), then lied and said it would cost 25 Euro. I raised an officially complaint and nearly three weeks later I have nothing other than a weak apology and promise to contact the post office to investigate. Despite repeat follow up emails, I am still waiting to hear what went wrong.

    The room and the staff were great. We were greeted warmly by everyone. Breakfast was great tasty but a bit boring. The restaurant next door was yummy as well. Bell hops were eager to help ring a taxi and give directions .

    « Well located modern business hotel »

    This is a modern hotel that looks like it was decorated by Versace Decor. Good breakfast, good coffee (real coffee, not Nespresso), friendly and helpful and efficient staff, toiletries are ok, bed is comfortable, it is very quiet with double glazed windows, good A/C. The only negative is the size of rooms. The rooms with three beds is two lying down while one walk around, not all at the same time. The suite was mistaken as a small room. Walking distance to Modena town and the surrounding area looks safe even when walking in the evenings. All in this is a pretty perfect hotel to spend a few days in and will definitely stay here again if visiting Modena.

    « Amazing »

    This is a one of the best Hotels I have ever stayed. For a very reasonable price you get great service, clean and well equipt room, soft beds, two swimming pools, gym, free parking. Brekfasts are rich and testy, where you can even mix a fresh juice as you want. There is a good restaurant next to the hotel. The hotel located not far from the Ferrary museum. Highly recommended!

    « Far Superior to any Best Western in North America. »

    This is a modern hotel with excellent front desk check in and attention. The rooms are contemporary (but on the small size), clean, quiet and well air conditioned. The bathroom is great, especially because it has a jacuzzi bath with soothing lights. Wifi works. We had a wonderful 'tasting meal' in the hotel restaurant with lovely service. We got to the breakfast the next morning a half hour before it was finished. This was unfortunate, because there wasn't any bread left. When we asked for more, it was the only time that the hotel failed to please us. The breakfast staff did not seem as eager to please/serve as the rest of the staff. Also, Modena is a beautiful place. It is a Unesco Heritage Site for good reason. Sadly, we only stayed here for one night.

    « Great service »

    A very clean nice, well-located hotel. I definitely recommend to anyone staying in Modena and know that you will be pleased with your stay. I wish it had a more complete dining experience as we were not able to eat in the hotel and had to go out every night

    « Perfect location - good service »

    Pleasantly surprised with this renovated and centrally located hotel. Helpful staff and also free parking - which is unusual downtown. Breakfast was not up to northern European standards, but still probably better than most Italian hotels.

    « More values for money »

    First time in Modena, a relatively good pick for our overnight stay. We booked 3 rooms and all were upgraded, though we were not sure what the standard rooms were like. Rooms size was fine for European standard. Service was friendly, rooms were cleaned, though we found underneath the desk was a bit dusty. Sound proof was not the best, as the guest upstairs to us was pushing the chair back and forth and the noise was guite loud. We will stay here again if we should visit Modena again, hope something can be done about soundproofing!

    « Gorgeous »

    What a wonderful surprise to check into this elegant hotel just minutes from the center of Modena. Everything was top notch and spotless. The bed and pillow were heavenly as were the sheets. An excellent stay for sure! We stayed in Room 108 and while there was no view to speak of the luxurious bathroom, dressing room and bedroom made the relaxing stay amazing. Parking is free on the street in front of the hotel (within blue stripes) if you can find it. The hotel will give you a ticket to put in your window for the duration of your stay, which was very convenient. The Ferrari Museum is an easy walk as is the town center. There are many delicious places to eat and enjoy the Modena cuisine. Try the steak marinated in balsamic vinegar, delish! Also, just across from the hotel towards the town center is a great balsamic vinegar ship which will ship. Their prices are excellent, only wish I'd gotten their card so I could go to their website and order more to be shipped to the states.

    « Modern Hotel in a great location »

    We spent 6 nights in Modena. Milano Palace is an enjoyable hotel in a good location. Parking is available on the street (if you can find a space) and the hotel is 10 mins walk to the centre; 5 mins to the Ferrari museum (Modena one) and 5 mins to the rail station. The only thing we didn't like was the bedroom windows which looked onto a courtyard and the curtains were kept closed. Staff were friendly and breakfast good.

    « Excellent stay & good location »

    The location is ideal..walkable distance from the train station. The staff is helpful and polite especially the lady at the reception ... always welcoming. Good Housekeeping -towels, toiletries replenished. Breakfast is minimal but was good. The room rate was expensive but we had nothing to complain about.

    « ABSOLUTELY THE BEST HOTEL in Modena »

    In April 2015 I started weekly business travels in Modena and I tried initlially different hotels. However, when I discovered the BEST WESTERN PREMIER Hotel Milano Palace I realized being impossibile to change again. The reason is that this is the best hotel at least in Modena for a lot of aspects: - position + physical evidence: it is located very close to the train station and to the downtown. In addition, this building was completely refurbished recently and rooms are fantastic. - service: high quality: international breakfast + excelent restaurant. - staff: this aspect represents really the additional value of this hotel: a professional staff well organised can meet and support customers' requirements, concerns and setbacks in kind and proactive way. To sum up, I've been living in this hotel (except weekends) since June 2015 and I can say..."I live" beacause this confortable place is like an home for me...

    « Good location to see central Modena »

    The allure of this hotel is that it is conveniently located within easy walking distance to old Central Modena, the train station and of course the Ferrari Museum. It was a good value for the price and pretty status quo for Best Westerns in Europe -- nothing great but not bad. Room was comfortable and nicely decorated and the staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. Inclusive breakfast was rather disappointing with very limited selection. Would recommend a stay here if visiting Modena.

    « Exgtraordinary cost-benefit »

    After a bad experience at a Best Western Hotel, in Baja, Mexico some years ago, it was difficult to decide if this hotel of the Premier branch was going to be much better. What a good surprise about the quality of the hotel and the best of all: excellent cost/benefit. Conformable bed, clean bath, soft towels, modern décor, walking distance to the train station and a 15 min walk from downtown. One of the best things about the room was that blackout courtains to avoid sun light in the mornings and helped to fight jet lag; totally dark. For the price paid for a suite, the room size was aceptable. Free and fast WI FI. Front desk personnel were very kind and polite, always willing to help. The buffet breakfast was just ok, nothing beyond expectations, but service was totally acceptable. For touristic reasons Modena is just worth to spend one or two nights maximum, so this hotel is totally recommendable.

    « Modern and central 4* hotel close to the train station but too expensive for what it is »

    We stayed 1 night in January 2016 in this hotel after having looked at many others in Modena. We choose it because the decoration was modern, which is difficult to find in Modena (most have historical/classique decoration). It is not in the "old city center", just a few steps from it, on a big and charmless avenue. It is very practical if you come by train because the hotel is between the train station and the okd city center (10min on foot only). It is quiet at night, the service is nice, there are kind of Versace decorations/furnitures. The room was ok but not "waouh" for the prixe we paid (around 150€ without breakfast) and considering the other hotels offers. For tech-fans, the bathtub has a coloured lighting system. Should we come back to Modena, we will choose a cheaper hotel even if we don't like its style because this one is not great enough for the price. FYI: go to the Caffè Concerto on the Piazza Grande, the gnocco fritto and the pasta are great, with nice ambiance;-)

    « Comfortable, well-located, but over-priced »

    We pulled into town late in the day and needed a clean, comfortable, safe place to spend the night. We were pleased with all aspects of this hotel except the price, which was strangely high relative to the many other places of similar type and quality we stayed in. The staff was helpful but unfortunately, we took their recommendation in our choice of dinner, and were really disappointed in the meal. But these things happen. Would feel much better about our stay if the price had been more in keeping with the other hotels in the region. Room was clean, comfortable, and spacious.

    We came to Modena to wait to see if we could get into Osteria Francescana...the waitlist didn't get us in, but we enjoyed our stay in clean comfort. anyway. The staff was helpful and welcoming. Our thanks to the Milano Palace Hotel staff.

    « Good Quality Hotel near the historic centre »

    The Milano Palace is one of the Best Western Premier hotels within the group and they do not disappoint. Very modern with a Versace theme this is a well designed boutique hotel with some nice touches albeit intermittent Wi-Fi. Well positioned to walk into the historic centre, the Museo Enzo Ferrari and the station the only drawback is that many of the rooms are quite small. I stayed as part of a tourism group for one night and this was ideal, there is even tea and coffee making facilities in the room unlike the other properties I stayed at on this tour. Breakfast is simple but adequate and I can certainly recommend the property.

    « Sparkly »

    Don't be put off by the Best Western name - this is a lovely little hotel which has been renovated in a tasteful modern style. Lots of sparkle around including the floor of the lift. We had classic rooms which were very comfortable - loved the painted pictures above the beds. Rainfall shower was quite powerful and a proper big hairdryer. Breakfast buffet was quite good. Wifi not very consistent which was a bit annoying. Hotel is a short walk to shops, restaurants, Enzo museum and the railway station. If you're travelling on the bus to Bologna airport - the stop is on the main road and not at the stops beside the train station - surprisingly hotel staff did not know this.

    « Good hotel, great location »

    This hotel is well located, just 5 minutes walk from the Modena train station and about 10 minutes walk from either the Enzo Ferrari museum or the central old Modena. We have arrived about an hour earlier then the permitted check in and staff were happy to take our cases to the storage and then also put them in into our room once it was ready. Our "executive double" room, although it felt small, was very nice and comfortable, cosy and it had a spare single bed / sofa. The only issue was with the shower - water seem to have escaped the boundaries and glass partition, causing a bathroom mini flood which had to be contained with the use of spare towels. Its probably a design issue. Breakfast was fine, but nothing special what we anticipated it would be. Staff were genuinely very friendly and helpful during our stay. The rate of EUR 246 per night (crazy amount of cash for one night but it was a special occasion, so wanted to make sure we stay in a nice place) plus EUR 3 per person per night city tax was the most we ever paid for any hotel in the world but unfortunately this was not the best hotel we ever stayed in. It probably makes it to the top five, however, considering the price, it was not the best value for money overall. Would stay there again but only if the rate was a lot lower.

    « Modern hotel in centre of Modena »

    We stayed 1 night at the Best Western Premier Milano Palace. The hotel is newly refurbished and in a great location - walking distance to the Ferrari museum in Modena and the lovely centre of Modena. The room was very nice, but on the small side. The rooms were clean. Rather noisy was the closing of the door of other rooms: this was loud and with a big BANG. The breakfast offering was ok, specially considering the price: 5 euro

    « Excellent Hotel near City Centre »

    Our second floor room was quite large with extra large double bed and good sized bathroom. But if you dont want to wash your hair the shower can be tricky to operate. Dont expect a view from your bedroom window because it is a major operation to even open the curtains and then the window. Air-conditioning works fine though. Free WIFI which worked fine when we were there. Excellent restaurant next door, as part of the hotel. We were are a large group (40) but the three course meal was first class and very efficiently served. Breakfast in another room within the hotel and on ground floor, had a very wide choice of foods available and filled up at regular intervals. Coffe was by order and served to the table. All the staff are very pleasant and helpful.

    Rooms are very comfortable, yet somewhat small. TVs are new. Internet is free, but somewhat slow and flaky. Parking is free. Hotel looks and is very clean and probably was recently redone. Good use of power outlets by the bed. Desk is very small (had to put the coffee maker on the nightstand to make room for laptop).

    Very modern tasteful rooms. Very helpful and friendly service Good central position for both shopping and the Enzo Ferrari museum. We felt it was very good value. The restaurant was good value and it was nice to see wine from 12 euros a bottle especially as it had a lovely decor and feel about it.
