    « Superb! Great Hotel Great Staff! »

    3 days in Modena and wanted to walk around, so I selected Best Western, Via Blasia.. As right in the center! So arrived in such a small street... Lovely warm welcome, I was 30 minutes before the check in time... No problem sir! 3rd floor nice clean room, with coffee tea facilities... Also shave kit, toothpaste as well as the normal beauty care... Then out for a walk and 1 minute to the center! Receptionist gave me a map, I could walk 1.0 km to my office.. Breakfast buffet is amazing!!! Full and fresh every day and there is an option of fresh espresso, etc. Ladies serving breakfast so happy kind and helpful :-) I will definitely stay here again on my next visit.. Is all you need and more from a hotel with great staff. Grazie millie!!!

    « Great location and friendly, helpful staff »

    I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The room we had was a little outdated in terms of decor but i actually liked the old fashioned quirkiness. It was a comfortable and clean room with everything you need. Staff couldn't be friendlier and were so helpful. The hotel couldn't be better location wise too and despite being in the centre of things was very quiet. I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay again if i was back in Modena. The free parking pass was also very useful as we had a hire car.

    « Clean, Nice staff, Great location »

    I've stayed here for one night. Bed was comfortable. The design was a little outdated and the bathroom was kinda weird. The location is really good and there are restaurants, cafes and ice cream parlors close to the hotel. Very good stay.

    I really enjoyed staying at this hotel and can highly reccomend the hotel. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. I could walk everywhere to explore Modena and it was very safe even late at night. The bed was very comfortable and the room clean and neat.

    A good business hotel based in the centre of Modena just off the main square. Hotel was really clean, comfortable and in a great location. Worth checking out if you are staying in Modena, as I do on business very frequently.

    « A good choice »

    The hotel was very much a part of our enjoyable stay in Modena. I booked a half board deal online but at the time I was unaware that dinner would not be served in the hotel. Whist checking arrangements before leaving home I discovered that the restaurant was 500 metres away. I thought that half board would be convenient as we planned to arrive in Modena at 19.00. As it happened the restaurant was near to the railway station, convenient as we were to arrive by train. The Liberta arranged for us to go straight to the restaurant and to have a car to take us to check in after dinner. That was reassuring as it seemed that everything should go smoothly after all. However our flight was 2 hours, but a quick phone call to the hotel and I was told that it would not be a problem. We had very enjoyable meals both evenings. We were glad when we finally got to the hotel and were able to relax. We felt that the hotel was a good choice. The location was excellent, being only a couple of minutes walk from the Duomo. The buffet breakfast was very enjoyable with a good selection of cakes. Our room was clean and comfortable. My one criticism was that the corridors had tiled floors which made them a bit noisy. However what made the hotel was the care and thoughtfulness of the staff.

    « Highland Park is a sister city to Modena. »

    I was pleased with the room which was a suite. The room was clean and had a lot of room in both the living room and the bedroom. The free breakfast was better than most. I considered this hotel to be a good value. It is in the middle of the town square and walking distance to most places.

    « Lovely Hotel, very central and helpful staff »

    Located just off a lovely square. The hotel is spotless and very comfortable. The staff very helpful and friendly. Would recommend this hotel if you are interested in going to Lamborghini museum or Enzo ferrari museum.

    « Very good for short stays. Very polite staff. Excellent location. »

    The rooms are comfortable and the WC has space enough for the needs. The area is smaller than the American Style, but enough for a short city stay. The staff is very polite and friendly. The variety of the breakfast is null, but the options are enough to try during three or four days. After that, it is more about the same. Just the cakes vary a little bit. The fruit and 0% fat products should be cared by the hotel. The area is quite and very close to the center. For a short stay, I will choose again this hotel, mainly due to the staff.

    « Five lovely nights in Modena »

    Ideally located for all the main tourist attractions,bars, restaurants and gelaterie, this small hotel has comfortable rooms which are impeccably clean and (unusually for Italy) has hot drinks making facilities. The air con in the rooms was excellent and proved to be essential as temperatures were in the 30s outside. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice and the staff were cheerful and obliging. Would happily return.

    « Magnifico in Modena »

    This hotel is probably the best place in Modena as far as location, convenience and service. Our room was a little dark and tight but we could unpack all our stuff comfortably for the three nights we were there. The exposed beams on the ceiling added a little charm, as did the wooden shutters that we could open onto a quiet alley. From the front door you are literally steps from the duomo, the palace square, bars, restaurants and shopping. We paid to park our car, which we could've done ourselves cheaper, but having it secured in a garage 50 meters away was more convenient. The breakfast was humble but good. The staff gets five-plus stars, especially Franco, who was helpful, courteous and made us feel like we were at a B&B. You won't find much in the way of flash or glitz, but it won't matter at all. Our only issue was the near non-existent wifi in our room, but it seemed to work fine everywhere else. Definitely the place to be if you want to get the most out of Modena.

    « Excellent location, comfortable »

    Hotel offers good level of comfort, best possible location and good breakfast. Service is very good and cleaning is perfect. Room 408 was a good size, quiet and sunny. Recommendable. Still at over 100 euros per night some improvements are necessary: the shutters lack fixtures to remain open without banging on a windy day, the shower had insufficient pressure and water didn't evacuate properly. Finally phonic isolation is louzy. Hopefully the management will take these issues seriously as would befit a three stars hotel.

    « A convenient, central Modena base »

    One-night stay, en route for Tuscany. Great location, 5 minutes walk to the Duomo, 30 minutes to the Museo Enzo Ferrari. Secure garage car parking; the car park is not very big so make sure you reserve a space in advance. Very helpful staff, comfortable bed, bathroom clean and functional but in need of renovation. Overall, not perfect - but good value especially considering the location of the hotel.

    One cannot find a hotel to stay in Modena with better location. Excellent beds, very nice and helpful staff. Few steps from Opera, cathedral, all the best restaurants, shopping streets, central square, Ferrari museum..

    « Lovely hotel, great staff »

    This is a lovely little hotel very close to the center of Modena. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are cozy, clean, and well furnished. The breakfast selection was fantastic, a lot of variety and even offered a few treats made in house. I will definitely return and I highly recommend this hotel.

    « It is ok »

    In Modena You can't find 4 or five star hotel. Liberta3 star with good personal is solution for stay one or 2 days. Price is ok and garage is near of hotel. Hotel is in heart od city, and in minutes or two You have caffes or restaurants, or something to see.

    « Perfect location »

    Lovely little hotel , central for all shops,restaurants etc. Staff very helpful and pleasant . Can be bit noisy at night with people walking by due to proximity of hotel and the main square but not a big issue. Great pizza shop few doors down where we are most days. Would definitely return and recommend

    « Perfect location »

    However, room is very plain and small. Hotel clearly needs refurbishing and being modernized. Staff very friendly and willing to help. I will try the breakfast in few minutes. My first impression is that the place is more like a hostel rather than a hotel. Very old carpet, but overall is clean.

    « 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.

    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.

    4
    « 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.
