Carlton is located at the centre of Ferrara by a pedestrian street (access for cars by a permit, seemingly). 200-300m walk to the main square, longer walk from the train station. Centro Storico parking is not too far away (I used this parking). Rooms are big and modern. Bathrooms also clean and modern (although with a bidé). Service was polite,... More

A competent hotel set very centrally in the delightful, intriguing city of Ferrara. Has clearly had a (reasonably) tasteful refurb recently but still retains an aura of 60s/70s trendiness. The wi-fi was a dream. And the breakfast was the best we've had in our cycling tour of Italy.

This hotel is about two minutes from the castle on foot so you can reach the many restaurants, bars, and shops. The hotel itself is decorated very nicely and has a modern feel despite the age of the building. The building itself has a classic feel, and is well maintained. The staff is incredibly nice and know who you are... More

This was our second visit to an apartment belonging to The Hotel Carlton. It was exactly as we remembered. Spacious apartment which is spotlessly clean. Bedding and towels were changed frequently . The rooms were cleaned during our stay. These apartments are ideal and a pleasure to stay in. They are equipped with everything you need and you can always... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week during September while he was on business. Upon our arrival, after a very stressful long day of travel, we were rudely "greeted" by the hotel desk clerk. She was abrupt, cold, not friendly or inviting at all. I am not sure if this was just an off day for her, but... More

Dear Guest, I'm very very desolate for what you happened! Our rating on tripadvisor is very high in comparison to many hotels in Ferrara. So is unusual for us to receive this kind of reviews. Anyway during that period we were renewing the hotel, therefore our service and attention to the guests weren't at the top. Also our bicycles now... More

I spent two nights at Hotel Carlton and was very pleased with the quality of the room for the value. The staff were friendly and helpful, as well. The location is wonderful-less than 5 minutes walk to the castle and cathedral and the hotel has bikes to rent. The included breakfast was very tasty. There is a public parking lot... More

What an adventure! We met wonderful locals along the way directing us to the old section of the city. It was almost a direct route from the train station. It was an easy 10-15 min. walk. Taxis available by the train station, but we like to explore. The hotel is in a great location, close to lots of eateries and... More

This little hotel is easy to oversee but offers rooms of very decent quality, quiet and clean, at affordable prices for the otherwise undemanding traveller. An agreeable breakfast buffet is the sole culinary offering although I never managed to taste the eggs supposedly included.

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.
