Nestled in the heart of the city from which it derives its name, we find ourselves before the majestic Castello Estense, a cornerstone of Ferrara's historic architectural heritage. A source of inspiration for countless artists, including the father of metaphysical painting who once resided in Ferrara.

Within our spaces, one feels as though suspended between reality and imagination. Perspectives are playfully manipulated to foster an environment of free interpretation.

Continuously drawing inspiration from De Chirico's innovative poetics, here, one breathes in a circular time. Where past and future meld into an eternal present, and the characteristics of the avant-garde revisit tradition—and vice versa.


Sixty rooms, each different from the other, uniquely express the pleasure of comfort and hospitality, while the Este Castle seems to provide the perfect scenic backdrop for a stay of pleasure or work.

The rooms are bright, equipped with every service, and offer views of the vibrant city or intimate glimpses of quiet courtyards and streets.

The Suites, with their private Wellness services, seem to suggest the best way to unwind and enjoy total and pure relaxation.
