An excellent experience. Family operated, and we were treated as family. Excellent facilities and service. We had the third floor suite, two bed rooms, kitchen, dining room, and private bath. Superb breakfasts. Highly recommended. We plan to return Summer of 2015. t

Hotel Carlton was easy to find and within walking distance of everything in Ferrara, including the train station which was very handy. The sights of Ferrara such as the castello and the cathedral are a 5 minute walk and there are plenty of little shops and bakeries around. The welcome was friendly and we checked in with ease. We were... More

This was a decent-sized room with very good facilities, and a nice hotel all-round. Everything was very clean and tidy, and a neat touch was that the art was more interesting than most hotels. The central landmarks are within easy walking distance, and the hotel has bikes to hire which is a great way to get around Ferrara. There's also... More

Nice hotel in the city centre of Ferrara, specially on the main avenue, full of shop and life. also easy for a big car park in the main square in front of the hotel as for a exclusive parkade inside the building.

We stayed in a very comfortable, quiet triple room, and the maid came by to re-do our beds just as we'd requested. Excellent breakfast. Good location for visits to the cathedral and the Castel Estense.

We were in Ferrara for new year's night fireworks. We're back at home at 1.00 a.m. and many people still celebrating in the streets. Despite this the room was so silent!

I always stay at the Carlton if I can. It is perfectly situated in the city center. Parking can be a pain but once it has been secured the rest of your stay should be OK.

I loved the city of Ferrara. Very centrally located to some other very nice little Italian cities. While the hotel was a little farther from the train station, it was certainly walkable. The most disappointing part of the hotel were the beds. Wow!! Super uncomfortable. The pillows were like sleeping on a rock.
