This hotel is mildly disappointing but is in a great location with friendly staff and a good breakfast. Our third floor room was functional but charmless and seriously short of power sockets which is not good enough in the age of the internet. Wi fi is also rather cumbersome.

The Corte Estense sits in a small street 150 metres from the main street, although that's to put it a bit strongly; it's pedestrianized most of the time, and life goes by at a pace which is increasingly rare to find these days. Having been captivated by Mantova, I was knocked out by Ferrara, and the hotel contributed much: very... More

Located in a side street, in a pedestrianised area, not far from the Cathedral square, this hotel offers a clean, quiet and comfortable stay. The building is old and has great character. My only reservation was a lack of electricity sockets (for charging mobile phones etc). We were able to unload the car by the hotel and then park in... More

This hotel has the most incredible service that any travellers can ask for! My friend and I stayed there for a night to explore Ferrara late August. I left an important document inside the safe of our room in the morning when we checked out and didn't realize it till 2 or 3 days later. By that time, I was... More

The Hotel Corte Estense could not be in a better location for exploring the delightful and surprising city of Ferrara. Nestled away in a quiet street just a two-minute walk from the cathedral and D'Este castle, this hotel is welcoming, bright, and clean. Our room had a walk-in closet and a big, clean bathroom with a huge (opaque) window. The... More

Very nice hotel only a 2 minute walk from the town centre and the castle. Secure parking is available a short walk away for an extra 10 or 20 euros a day (I cant remember which). Breakfast is very nice and the staff are friendly and helpful. Very good value for money.

A few steps from the main sights of the city lies this cozy hotel. Still quiet environment, very tastefully decorated rooms, helpful and delicious staff. Staying at this hotel will be enhanced by a strong feeling of Ferrara, from its Renaissance palaces and churches. Definitely want to go back there!

Hotel Corte Estense is located in the center of the main attraction of Ferrara. The name of the hotel implies the good lord Estense whom ruled this "New York" of Italy in the 14th or 15th century. Hotel is located just inside the wall (there is no wall today) at the market square and the very old municipal building/square along... More
