Just went to Ferrara, a magical small town where everyone is ultra friendly and happy. This hotel is a gem, close to the town square, about a minute away. Friendly staff, nice wood beams and wrought iron. A little garden outside the back. Everything is there for breakfast...cereal, ham, chees, fruit and blood orange juice. One of my faves now.... More

Cant beat this hotel for location just off the main square near the castle. Lovely big room with a beamed ceiling room 306. Other reviews mention it is dark and yes it is but thats because it is old, full of character and in the city. If you want modern etc this place is not for you. The shower was... More

When you arrive at this beautiful town just ask your way to the center. From the train station it is just a straight walk of about one and a half kilometers. I suggest that, if you arrive during the day, you walk to the hotel because you will get a good idea of Ferrara, then, when you arrive at the... More

The breakfast is really good too, you can choose among a variety of food sweet and savoury, delicious coffee or juices and the traditional milk... More

this was a good hotel, in the center of Ferrara quite close to a parking, although it is in a not to easy to find narrow lane. Presents itself well and service is adequate. Room are very large, airy, and bathroom is spacious. Not the best value for what it cost, but overall a good choice in Ferrara. By www.... More

The ambiance was relaxing. The location is perfect to visit the center of Ferrara. The rooms were comfortable in particular the beds!!! They were SO comfy that we couldn't get out of the bed in the morning! BUT the breakfast hours were to short (7am;10am). It would be nice if breakfast was open until 11am. However breakfast wasn't surprising BUT... More

The Corte Estense in Ferrara was booked on my behalf by a Bologna conference agency (bad mistake! should always rely on TripAdvisor first!). It's nicely located in the historic world heritage city centre, but is badly in need of a complete revamp and renovation. The reception staff are virtually entirely non-English speaking, and not particularly helpful from the get-go at... More

charming hotel in the historic center, friendly staff, tasteful decorated room with modern clean bath, plenty of choices of breakfast buffet, quiet location right next to where the action is: cathedral and castle and shopping and restaurants within 500m.

I really liked this hotel. A very nice, clean room and the location was outstanding with literally a 2 minute walk to the Cathedral and Piazza. Room was quite large as well. Free breakfast in the morning and they even had scrambled eggs! Excellent choice for Ferrara.
