    « Amazing service! »

    This hotel is in a great location and has wonderful staff. I was not feeling well the day we arrived and the staff was so accommodating. They went above and beyond to make sure that I was cared for and okay. They sent up hot tea and treats! Housekeeping was so kind, too. I really appreciated all of their kindness.

    « Great location »

    We came here with a Zingermans culinary adventure. Most of the trip was in Tuscany, but we had two days in Emilia Romano to see the "birthing" of the Parmigiano Romano and to see how balsamic vinegar is produced, so this hotel was the perfect location, although you need a car to go to those activities. We also had time to walk around and visit this quiet town and sample the local salumerias and shops, all convenient walking distance. The hotel itself was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were well appointed, although I'd be remiss not to mention that they had the smallest shower I've seen on land (on a ship you expect it), couldn't really turn around, but still adequate. I'd definitely return to this hotel.

    « Great customer service »

    Best Western Liberta, Modena- We arrived at the hotel really late at night traveling from Rome which was a hike to say the least. The hotel could not seem to find my Expedia reservation but was more than accommodating to have a room for us upon arrival and to honor the Expedia rate. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the shower door was strange especially for the tall and the breakfast was hearty. If in the area, I would certainly stay here again.

    « Dont leave car keys!! »

    Stayed here for 1 night. Close to ferrari museum about 10min walk. Other than that not much else to say. Basic room with a poor shower-at least it worked. Breakfast was good, plenty choice. We parked in the hotel garage and at check in were asked to leave our car key "in case of emergency" we assumed they didnt want us to lose it. On check out we went to get the car and were directed to a garage round the other side - hotel staff had moved our car without asking or consulting us. I think this is absolutely discusting! We thought our car was secure and where we parkedmit but no. It was too late to complain by the time we were leaving but it spoilt the hotel for us.

    Best location in the city. Nice offer regarding parking. (Garage/free parking outside and they take care of city taxe, no registration needed) Top personal with your best intrests in mind. I would really recommend this hotel and I would book it again for my next trip to Modena.

    « Location is great for a base,but the room was noisy »

    The location is perfect to explore the town. The receptionist are hit or miss. One lady was super nice when I checked in, one guy was great when I checked out, but when I actually needed help navigating the city, the guy on duty didn't know anything. Breakfast is good - legit coffee made to order, fresh fruit, croissants, eggs, and a selection of meats. The room was small and clean for the most part except the mosquito and bugs I had to kill. The noise on the other hand, I had the worst night of sleep (or lack there of) because I could hear everything from the street, the halls, the lobby, and people walking upstairs.

    « Average »

    Breakfast was very good. The single room was small but clean. However, the walls are very thin, I was on the first floor and I could hear everything from the front desk. Very slow shower drain. Staff not always helpful, I always had to wait if they were talking at the phone. They did not give me any information about breakfast, wifi and check-out until I asked. I also asked for a city map and they did not have one at that time.

    « Well located, efficient & friendly »

    The hotel is in a quiet square in the centre of town, convenient for the sights (but a taxi-ride away from the train- or bus station). The building seems to have been modernised or refurbished comparatively recently; everything looks thoroughly new and bright. My single room was pleasant enough, with a good wi-fi connection and a spacious shower/toilet. One slight shortcoming was that the door on to the corridor didn't seem to offer much noise protection. The breakfast area was ample ample and the food good (though the proportion of cake to fruit or cereal won't have pleased the nutritionally conscious). The staff were friendly to the point of enthusiastic, and very helpful when advising on catching an early flight at a distant airport. Overall an enjoyable place to stay.

    « Very nice hotel, great location and friendly staff »

    We have spent three nights at this hotel and we have been very happy with our choice, Perfect location, right in Modena's center, near main sights and restaurants. Rooms are well appointed and comfortable. Very good breakfast with lots of room and tables in the breakfast room. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful, with no exception. And very good price/quality ratio Highly recommended!

    Perfect location in the center of Modena. Clean room and facilities. Staff is professional and nice. Very close to the piazza. Good restaurants in the area but I would book I table first as they were all very full. Breakfast is good and well presented. Will return here if back in Modena.

    « Does exactly what it says on the tin »

    The Hotel Liberta is a very good 3 star hotel, situated ideally in the middle of town. We had a very spacious suit style room with a nice view. It was clean and the customer service in the hotel was excellent. The bathroom probably needs updating but on the whole we were very happy we stayed here. We didn't eat here so cant comment on breakfast/ dinner.

    « Excellent environment, kind staff »

    This is a very nice, clean hotel with spacious room at the center of Modena, walking distance to nice restaurants (Danielle, Enzo). I thank Fabrizio who was very kind in helping us to move to the next accommodation (taxi), recommending restaurants, smiling to my child, etc.

    « EXCELLENT LOCATION »

    It has an excellent place in the middle of the old town and very close to the Duomo. the staff is more than kind, they were super perfect. The rooms are clean but urgently need renovation. the hotel is old. so it has avery heavy smell inside. It has a parking area that need prior reservation. Breakfast has too many alternatives but with low quality foods.

    « Meh »

    We spent one night in Modena this weekend at the Hotel Liberta. The hotel has a central location and a well equipped room. (Hairdryer, toiletries and a safe to name a few) However the terrible scent in the lobby/hallways was overwhelming and the breakfast was disappointing. It was fine for one night, but we wouldn't stay here again.

    « Central location. Basic. Weird smell... »

    As per my style, let me start with a general statement: Modena offers a very limited selection of hotels! Most of these have not been refreshed in style in many years. This said, hotel Libertà is an extremely good option as it's located in the heart of the city. Next door to the main attraction (i.e. Accademia Militare) and at walking distance from the main church. While location is perfect, the place looks old fashioned straight from the 70's despite several attempts of delivering a more recent look and feel. Overall this hotel offers what you need for a short stay. No more no less than this. Beds are comfortable. You can sleep well also because it's located in an extremely quite area of the town center. One demerit to mention: horrible stinky smell in the corridors.

    « Nice staff, Nice location, Nice little room »

    Staff were really friendly and helpful. Did everything they could to help out and be welcoming. Location is great, walking distance to train station, bus station, Enzo Ferrari museum, a lot of great coffee places and places to eat + drink. My room was a little dark, as there was little natural light, the shower was a little small, and no kettle in room for those of us that like a hot drink! Overall very good however.

    « Best location in Modena »

    Stayed here for 2 nights in October. Room was really comfortable, though the bathroom might need an update from the 1970's.But this is super trendy these days and the hotel staff are so helpful and friendly. Probably the best location in Modena and a good breakfast. Stay here if you're in Modena... You'll not regret it, especially as a short walk to the enzo Ferrari museum and other attractions.

    « Clean and particular »

    We have stayed here one night. Everything sems to be on its own place clean and modern. Only the noise of the refrigeratore at night was disturbing me. The Refrigerator stays in the little salone behind the slide door prior to the bedroom but you can hear it while trying to sleep anyway. Breakfast and the bar downstairs were great. Lot of choice from the swedish table. Wow ! Izabela from Rome.

    « Lovely little hotel »

    Good points: very clean excellent staff good breakfast perfect location has it's own car park Not so good points: little bit dated lift is small so could get a bit squashed in busy periods but really only used it with the cases We stayed for 2 nights in rooms 304 and 305. The hotel is small and down a little side street but it is meticulously clean, comfortable and has very friendly and helpful staff. Our rooms overlooked the front of the hotel and didn't have much of a view due to the narrowness of the road and proximity to the building on the opposite side. However, we weren't disturbed by noise and it was still very warm outside so tended to keep the shutters closed. The rooms were dated (avocado bathrooms!) but spacious, clean and comfortable. There was a hospitality tray and a safe for guests use. There was also air-conditioning which was controlled from inside the room. A large dressing table which would have been fine for working on. The hotel did have lots of little steps so if you required disabled access it could be an issue but I'm sure the staff would be very helpful. Breakfast was plentiful. Staff brought tea/coffee as required to the table and there was a good choice of fruits, pastries, breads, meat and cheese. Would we stay again? Oh yes, without a doubt.

    « Can do much better in Modena »

    Modena is a difficult city in which to find a good hotel at a reasonable price but I would certainly not recommend this one.... it's smelly and old. Definitely not up to Best Western normal standards in other cities.

    « Perfectly located hotel »

    The main trump of this hotel is obviously its location: only 100m away from the piazza grande with the duomo. So, plenty of restaurants in the immediate neighbourhood (check whether they're not closed when you're visiting Modena mid-August). What was also important for me was the garage. The hotel has a small, covered and secured parking almost adjacent to the hotel. OK, it will cost you €20 per day, but that's a quite normal price for parkings in the city centre and pretty essential if your car is stuffed with bags and luggage. Make sure you reserve your parking spot in advance. The rooms are nothing special. A bit outdated (certainly the bathroom), but not too small. There is an airco, but we felt it had difficulties to cool down the place. Positive point: there is a safe for your valuables. The shower was a bit awkward and small, but quite OK in the end. Breakfast was OK, certainly to Italian standards. The receptionists were helpful and spoke French to help you out if your Italian appears to be insufficient. I assume they speak English as well. All in all a pretty OK hotel. Nothing special, but certainly suitable for a one to two nights stay when visiting Modena.

    « Thanks Hotel Liberta!! »

    My wife and I stayed from 30 June to 3 July and what a wonderful time we had. The hotel is in the center and very close to excellent restaurants. This is not a fancy hotel but the service and hospitality was brilliant. We had a very good breakfast every morning for only 3 euro per person! Our room was very clean and we have no complaints what so ever. Although it was a long walk in the heat, it is not too far to the station. Hope to be back.

    « Great base for Ferrari and Puccini Land Tour »

    We were traveling through the Veneto region during a heat wave by moto and needed a stop for a few days that did not require us to use the moto to get around so we picked Modena to enjoy the Ferrari and Puccini Land Tour. This hotel was the perfect choice for our needs. Pros: Secure garage parking with cameras and locked doors Walking distance to great restaurants and all the sights of Modena including the Ferrari Museum and stop for the Land Tour. Very comfortable bed Great staff Outstanding breakfast selections Clean Con I have selected 3 instead of 4 because the hotel is in desperate need of a renovation. We felt like we stepped back to 1994. While the whole space is very clean, everything needs updating - bathroom tiling, the fabrics and upholstery etc. There was a new tv, and the bed was extremely comfortable and new. The day we checked out it looked like maybe some of the rooms on our floor where actually getting updated, but I am not 100% sure. Wifi was weak Breakfast was fantastic and staff was really friendly and outstanding. Overall, I would stay here again if in the area if the price is a bargain because of the parking, the friendliness of the staff, and the comfort of the bed.
