Hotel Duchessa Isabella History
The Hotel Duchessa Isabella, prestigious 5-star hotel member of the Relais & Chateaux, is located in the heart of Ferrara, a few steps from the Castello degli Estensi, with respect to which it has nothing to envy in terms of splendor and beauty. The facade of the building is sober, the interiors are so richly decorated. The building dates back to the sixteenth century and has coffered ceilings with pure gold friezes, original lacquered doors of the time, monumental stone fireplaces, precious frescoes of the Ferrara school and antiques, such as the beautiful collection of antique clocks.
And again, silver and crystal glisten on the tables of the restaurant, while in the bedrooms and suites, including fabrics and fine lace, dominate canopies and furnishings in Renaissance style, alongside the modern comforts such as satellite TV, minibar and piped music. In short, a heritage bound by cultural and environmental heritage and guarded by the owner family, which knows how to give hospitality a family taste and not at all formal, from the first reception.
Breakfast and meals are also served in the garden. The kitchen is a gastronomic invitation to the court of the Estensi, both for its refinement and its inspiration for ancient recipes, which give rise to original Renaissance menus with dishes inspired by the most refined Emilian tradition. The staff of the structure, highly qualified, will know how to make available the best services and customize every detail in case of events such as banquets, meetings and events, to be hosted in the various rooms.
Pride of the Hotel Duchessa Isabella is the modern Wellness Center, where you can download tensions and fatigue between the sauna, heated whirlpool pool, Turkish bath, Kneipp path and massage rooms.
