I am an elderly experienced world traveler, picky but not overly so, who does much research on accommodations before I travel, and am therefore usually pleased with where I end up. Clean, quiet, comfortable, convenient, friendly are my criteria, but I am a big fan of “olde worlde charme”. This is modern, and a bit large for a boutique hotel... More

Average breakfast and room etc. The only thing of note at this hotel was the WiFi failing twice during my stay. Not acceptable in this day and age, and the staff attitude when we inquired about it was dismissive. Parking is available, but is 20€ per day secured, or 3€ per day on the streets. Funnily enough, we were not... More

The hotel is only 5 mins walk away from the town centre and 15 mins away from Ferrara Central Train Station (walking distance). This is clean and very quiet. The room is in good size. However, their centralized A/C unit needs to be upgraded. The room temperature is too warm to me.

The Astra Hotel in Ferrara has a good location, a short walk from the Este Castle, the Duomo, and the historic center. The single room I was in was fairly ample and quite clean, especially the bathroom. All the desk clerks with whom I dealt were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was pretty slap-up. The only quibble that... More

One month ago I slept for 5 nights in this hotel, a 4 star one, and I can assure that I won't sleep there anymore in my life. The only positive thing was the fact that it is settled very close to the city centre, but despite this fact, I'm still thinking about how this hotel can be listed as... More

Dear Mrs. Nancy, I'm really sorry for your bad experience in our hotel. Usually we have no problem with cleaness, maybe your room was not well cleaned but we had no claims during your stay. About the garage, all the hotels in the heart of the city has a small garage, because in the historical center there's no space. Maybe... More

This Hotel is close to the city center by foot. Parking can be arranged but involves having to contact a consiege to unlock doors etc in a very secure underground car park. Rooms are tidy and very clean although the hotel is showing its age. The staff are always very helpful and efficient although there is often only one person... More

This 4 star hotel is very nice and centrally located, in 5 minutes by walk, you can reach the castle. All the staff are very kind and helpful. You can have also a free bicycle to visit the city. Good idea!!

The hotel is very old, and it looks like it has not been renovated for ages. It really needs a lot of work to make it a real 4-star hotel! Our room was on the first floor, with a view over the wheelie bins that lined the back street... Also, when people walked the street, a lot of noise entered... More

It’s simple to summarise this hotel. When we are due to go back to Ferrara would we stop at the Astra Hotel, the answer is NO. Not a chance.
