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. We went to this hotel on Business in September for 3 nights. A colleague made the reservations so no prior investigations were made other than the address, this was a big... More

Dear guest, I'm very sorry about your poor experience in our hotel. We like to propose a classic italian design for lobby and common areas, maybe it could seem old but it's not. About room, our "standard" room is easy and functional and maybe you like a more confortable room like the "de Luxe" room. About cleaness of the room,... More

Stayed for 3 nights Oct. 2011. Hotel was clean but in need of refurbishment, Staff not the most friendly. My room was quite dated , I would guess the last time the place was decorated was in the early 90s. Bed comfortable, air conditioning could not be adjusted. Garage parking quite expensive at 20 euro per day. Breakfast was good,... More

Hotel Astra is old and in desperate need of renovation. It's not by far a 4-star hotel, more like a 2-star. The rooms are out of date (sad decor from the 1960's), with old blankets in the bed instead of duvets. The rooms are incredibly cold - both me and my colleague slept with two blankets and the old bedspread... More

I'm really sorry for the cold, maybe something in the temperature control doesn't work correctly. I don't know if you asked to the reception about this problem, it's quite possibie that we was able to solve your disease. Astra Hotel has a classic design, but there's nothing that has more than 15 years (the hotel was enterely renewed) and all... More
