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

My husband and I recently spent a night at the Corte Estense and were exceptionally pleased. We arrived in a car and found the hotel easily in a small street right off the main artery to the Duomo square. Greeted in English, we unloaded the car and then were directed to the hotel parking garage about 200 meters away. The... More

Catch the 11 bus to just past the castel. Good location but Ferrara is boring! It is not a place for visitors. Only 2/30 attractions and churches marked on the tourist map were open on a Thursday (not a public holiday either). The staff don't speak any English but that doesn't matter, just be prepared. Ok breakfast, good shower. Holes... More

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

This hotel is in the heart of Ferrara, you just have to walk to the centre. It is vey nice, my room had windows on the small, beautiful internal corte, which was an amazing view. 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
