This is the best location in Mantua. It is within short walking distance of everything - architecture, fine food , great shopping , quick coffee. It is unusually decorated and very attract. The kitchen is minute but well equipped and serviceable. Bathroom is extremely well finished - spacious with great shower. Communication and check in were first rate. Giulia even arranged taxi for us on departure. We lived it.

Giulia is a fantastic host. We had to arrive late and she was very accommodating to our schedule. The best part about this apartment is that it is secluded (we didn't hear anything at night) but close to everything. We walked everywhere and had a phenomenal time in Mantova. The place was spotless, comfortable, and cozy. Perfect for two people. We stayed for two nights and parking cost us 24 euros. The walk was very short! Definitely stay here. You'll love it!

We enjoyed our stay immensely. Giulia's place was absolutely spotless & in a great location. Her brother welcomed us warmly & explained everything about the compact, yet very well appointed apartment. We appreciated the delicious Mantova cake left for us, & also some guide maps & pamphlets. I highly recommend Giulia's place.

A really nice apartment in the middle of Mantova. All the places to explore are just around the corner. The appartments design is unique and you'll find in there all you need to have a pleasant stay. Giulias brother was there on appointment and explained everything. Thanks for the cookies.

My experience was horrible from the moment I walked in, because the pictures make it look much larger than it is. It is VERY small. Having resigned myself to make the best of it, since it was at least quite clean, I did some research for my book at the Palazzo del the and then returned for a quiet evening of writing. That is when everything went to hell in a handcart. The neighbours are extremely loud - which I'm told should not be surprising in a palazzo !? The street is extremely busy and you can hear every car that passes, and if it is a truck run for cover, you will think it's an earthquake. I paid for two nights and left after one with no refund or admission that the place was wrongly advertised.

Response from Giulia:
We are very sorry that Michael, unlike all our other guests, didn't appreciate the apartment. The flat is in a restricted traffic zone, in a very narrow alley, in the heart of the city, where very few cars are allowed to transit. Michael complained about traffic noise at 9 pm on a monday evening, which is instead very unlikley to be disturbing. The "loud" neighbours, that we promptly called to have clarifications about the alledged noise they were making, at 9 pm were spending a normal family evening. No other guest ever complained about the very same neighbours. The day he left the apartment, he went to Florence instead of looking for another place in Mantua for the second night he had to spend in the city. Maybe, he changed his plans, asking us for a refund....

This apartment is a real jam in Mantova. Beautiful and unique decor, great architectural details such a hidden door to the bathroom and a mirror that makes an optical illusion. This place is right in the center, which makes it easy to get anywhere around town. Since there are marble floors in the hallway, it makes it a bit noisy in the morning when the neighbors go to work. Giulia is a nice and thoughtful hostess. She left the place equipped with everything you'd need for a comfortable stay, even left traditional local cookies to welcome us. She met us at the apartment even though she doesn't live in the city. We had a wonderful stay and definitely recommend this place.

Giulia and Gio were both great hosts and we loved our stay at the apartment. It is absolutely darling and super comfortable. It is in the perfect location, central and so close to all the historic sites and areas to visit yet so quiet. We slept wonderfully :). The delicious biscuits they provided were a cute bonus :)!
