The room itself was tiny, almost closet like. The bathroom was just as tiny. It felt like a small storage room was turned into a hotel room. The whole place is very dated and in HUGE need of a renovation. When I saw the rates, thats when I decided on my rating!!! Some of the staff was quite snotty and... More

Loved everything about Hotel Carlton. Wonderful, helpful staff. Couldn't ask for a better location: right on the beach, surrounded by great bars, restaurants and shops. My room had a beach view. Only a very short walk to the train station. Air conditioning kept room at perfect temperature. Great bathroom and great shower. Very impressive breakfast offering. Perfect wifi reception throughout... More

When I am with family I end up here, we always find the best price, comfort and quality in food and hospitality. The staff always has a smile and a helpful advice to give. Parking is provided at anytime of the day and night. The view is great, right in front of LungoMare. The breakfast is a mixture of italian... More

Pescara is a lovely city and you'd think a 4 star hotel in the center of the city, across from the Adriatic Sea, would be great. Well, no. We stayed here two nights. We got in late and tired so we dined at their restaurant in the hotel. Terrible. The first bad meal I've had in countless trips to Italy.... More

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
