In the most ancient house of the discrict, already used in the past as an inn and a mail station for horse´s rest and change, in a newly restructured good-looking apartment our hosts can find 6 wide and furnished rooms, two single rooms and four double rooms (for total 10 beds), two bathrooms, a dining room and a living room.

The structure is situated in Via Emilia, between the historical center and the highway exit of Modena Nord, at a few kms from the Exhibition.

We are well served from public transports and you can easily reach us either from the Via Emilia or from the North Bypass (exit 12 “Madonnina”).

In each room you will find comfortable furnish as well as a washbasin, a 20” color TV, an electric fan and a fridge with refrigerator. In each double room you can ask to join beds.

As for the breakfast, it is possible to use the coffee machine that you find in the dining room inside the apartment.

Otherwise, you can have breakfast in the bar situated on the ground floor, which offers good breakfasts of “modenese” taste. Very good and highly appreciated is “gnocco fritto con salumi” (a sort of salty pancake served with various kinds of cold meats and salami).

In the discrict you can also find some home delivery pizzerias and other restaurants, some of them of high quality.

Hey from Sergio

Using the savings from my two jobs (one in psychiatry and the other in an industrial company), I bought and renovated my house. Now, with the profits from my hospitality business, I finance the most intense and satisfying activity of my life: two humanitarian missions, one in Albania and one in Uganda.

In Albania, I have been helping some very poor families for a long time and have built important friendships with them. In Uganda, I am trying to promote the development of a small village where 130 people live.

None of them had a job, and they survived on what little they could cultivate. I opened a small mechanical workshop and a breeding business for them. I also sent over 15 children to study in small and simple colleges and support their families' income.

In Uganda, I also initiated a literacy project in a juvenile prison, where a teacher is always available to help 40-50 detained boys. The most severe cases are assisted by starting them on a path to education or work and providing them with housing.

I want to thank all my clients for giving me the opportunity to live this intense experience of complete joy!

We are located on Emilia street, Madonnina district, halfway between Modena Fair and the Historical Center, near the exit number 12 of the ring road and not far from the Train Station (approximately 3 km).

We can be easily reached by bus (numbers 2, 5, 762, 81) which stop 20 meters away from our house. Buses 9 and 9/a reach the train station.

Property is good and in very good location. Interior is simple but all needed facilities are available. Only comment from my side, if you are having heavy luggage and not a good weight lifter, then you need to take help. There is no lift. Location is very promising, as soon as you come down in the evening, you go either left or right you can see happening places and there are lot of restaurents. And please ensure check-out time is clearly agreed.

Nous n’avons malheureusement pas pu dormir à cause des va-et-vient des personnes habitants dans l’immeuble; en effet il ne s’agit pas d’un Hôtel (il n’y a pas d’enseigne), il ne s’agit pas non plus d’un Bed-And-Breakfast (pas de petit-déjeuner proposé à l’intérieur); il s’agit plutôt d’un « AirBnB sans cuisine » avec des personnes louant les chambres au mois, c’est un seul appartement divisé en plusieurs chambres donc très très bruyant le soir, la nuit et à partir de 5h30 du matin, on entend la radio du voisin, les claquements de porte sans arrêts et même des hurlements … Le parking n’est pas privé et est non-attenant à la structure. La climatisation n’est pas compris dans le prix et il faut ajouter 4€ au total. Le petit frigo n’est pas silencieux, nous avons dû le couper et donc nous n’avons pas pu nous en servir. Pour les points positifs, nous pouvons noter que la chambre est grande et propre, le gérant, qui ne nous a pas accueilli, est aimable, il y a un sèche-cheveux. En somme, 65€ c’est très cher pour la prestation et le rapport qualité/prix n’est pas bon. Nous déconseillons ce lieu.

Soggiorno molto tranquillo, silenzioso ed adorabile, che ha beneficiato anche di un gestore estremamente gentile, educato, simpatico e colto. Grazie.
