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! My girlfriend needed a bag of ice due to a distorsion and the night porter was very patient and careful, we appreciated this. We advise Carlton Hotel, comfortable and... More

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've stayed at the Carlton several times over the last several years and the accommodations are A OK. If you are there in the... More

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.

We chose the hotel based on the good reviews and our need for secure parking. It really did not let us down. Really good value for money and the location was perfect. A great place to visit and would recommend it.

The hotel has a very good location close to the city centre. The rooms are decent and rather spacious. In general the hotel offers real good value for your money. Breakfast is fine except from the coffee. Tip: ask for espresso (or doppio).

Dear Mr. Peter, thank you for your review. We serve the coffee in two ways : - espresso made by the waitress - coffe by the automatic machine (if you are in a hurry!) We probably better highlight this opportunity of choice. Regards Regards Paolo Colombarini Hotel Manager More

We expected better from this place based on the reviews and the location. Service was on the slow and in part rather snobbish side. Beds are old and sagging. There are sure better places in the area for less money
