Reviewed 16 July 2015

We visited Mantova on the recommendation of a friend and decided to stay as close to the center as possible. You cannot get much closer to all the attractions than the Agora!! It is on a side street directly behind the Basilica. The Palazzo is about a five minute walk as are most other sights. Plenty of eating places within five/ten minutes. Cristina herself is wonderful hostess. She gives you all the information and help you need to have a great time in Mantova. We had the big family room--it was huge and fit our family of three easily. Full kitchen, good AC, good Wifi, comfortable and clean. We could have lived there for some time comfortably!! This was one of our favorite towns and favorite places to stay in all of Italy!! Do note this is not a luxury hotel, but basically a big apartment right in the center of town--which was perfect for us. Highly recommend. Breakfast is around the corner in a little local café--again croissants, coffee, juice which for us is perfect. Would stay here again!!

Room Tip: Get directions from Cristina before arriving if you are driving as it is tricky in the center of tow...

We only stayed here one night. Not very easy to find and the sign outside could be a bit more prominent. Very well presented room and comfortable, central location but quiet. The owner was helpful in telling us the best places to eat locally and what to see in our limited time. Although we didn't need it, we were given detailed information about parking and car access to the hotel. We would certainly stay here again, excellent value.

This apartment was right in the historic part of town, was spacious, well appointed, nicely furnished and very comfortable. Breakfast was provided at a nearby coffee shop/bar and Christine helped us with parking and with restaurant recommendations.

Agora is just awesome! Cristina helped us with everything we needed to know before we got there, and also recommended some nice places to eat around this small town, even organised to call taxi for us whenever we needed. The room is spacious and comfortable with small kitchen where you can cook or prepare your tea/coffee. All facilities are in excellent condition. And the location is in restricted area, where you can have your breakfast at a nearby bar while enjoy watching morning serene view of Mantua. I strongly recommend this place if you plan to visit Mantua!

We arrived today 07/05/14 and were amazed by the help we received from Cristina the owner. She had secured us parking and provided us with places to eat (including 10% off in some restaurants) and places to see. The apartment is spacious, generously furnished and in a great location in a quiet street extremely close to the cultural centre and main shopping area. The lakes are a short walk of around 10 mins away. I would highly recommend this appartment as you get a nice place to stay and a friendly personal service which is often lacking when staying in hotels.
