We stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights end of June. Good location across from the Adriatic Sea and downtown Pescara. Was just a few blocks from the train & Bus stations, so an easy walk. Also included in the price is a good buffet breakfast. Plenty of restaurants up and down the beach.

We stayed here for a few nights in June 2014. We spoke only a little Italian and there were some lost in translation moments, but vibrant happy area with great food, shopping and coastline. Not used to paying for beach space, but while in Italy... Room lovely and comfortable bed. Breakfast great in the morning.

The property has been here for almost 70 years, but only had a few owners including the original family, and Spain's (now defunct) Jolly Group. The latest is Olivetti Hotels, which has four properties in eastern (beachside) Italy and one in Calabria. So it's not a huge hotel group, but it has done a good job at the Carlton. Pescara... More

We have been lucky enough to visit Pescara several times now and always had a fab time. The people are just so friendly and helpful. English is not so widely spoken as other Italian cities but trust me that does not matter one bit. You truly get a feel for the Italian way of life here. This hotel has the... More

This hotels rooms are usually a phenomenal price....£300 ish per night, but on Booking.com we got a room for £79 so decided to give it a try, as we usually stay at the Victoria Hotel in Pescara ( which is great). We were flying back early the next morning, so only a 1 night stay. The hotel does have a... More

Great views across the beach from our room. However, room decor was very dated and wallpaper coming away from wall, very musty smell in our room. Bathroom was fresh and clean and modern with great shower. Dined in the restaurant on the night we stayed and it was a very poor meal, tasteless steak and fish although the waiter service... More

A very nice hotel with a wonderful breakfast. Really a lot of choice, cold meats, eggs, bacon, waffles, sweet cakes, toast and jams, prunes, cereals, to name a few. The rooms were nice size and the room we had also had a verandah. Shower was excellent and bathroom very clean. Always lots of hot water. The rooms wallpaper needed to... More

This wonderful hotel is located right across the street from the beach. It was so close that I was able to take decent pictures of my family members who were standing on the beach from the window of our hotel room. In addition to being close to the beach, the hotel is situated in front of the main shopping area... More

This was a great unexpected surprise. We are a family of four with teens. We had two adjoining rooms that afforded everyone space and privacy. The bathrooms have bee beautifully remodeled. The included breakfast was huge and the kids loved making their own waffles. There is somewhat expensive shopping and restaurants within walking distance. The best gelato anywhere called GELATI...

Lovers of water views must ask for a sea view and then be prepared to ignore the music and festivities along the boardwalk. I booked at the last minute on a great rate that included breakfast and wi-fi. I arrived at 12pm slightly early, but Flavia at Reception was fantastic and had the room prepared. First stop was the beach... More
