I stayed in this hotel whilst attending a meeting in Ferrara. It is centrally placed being very close to the castle and old part of the city. Although a 5 star hotel the bedroom furniture was rather old and in need of updating from its rather tired look. The bathroom was clean and roomy and the shower effective. The buffet...

I am an elderly experienced world traveler, picky but not overly so, who does much research on accommodations before I travel, and am therefore usually pleased with where I end up. Clean, quiet, comfortable, convenient, friendly are my criteria, but I am a big fan of “olde worlde charme”. This is modern, and a bit large for a boutique hotel...

Average breakfast and room etc. The only thing of note at this hotel was the WiFi failing twice during my stay. Not acceptable in this day and age, and the staff attitude when we inquired about it was dismissive. Parking is available, but is 20€ per day secured, or 3€ per day on the streets. Funnily enough, we were not...

The hotel is only 5 mins walk away from the town centre and 15 mins away from Ferrara Central Train Station (walking distance). This is clean and very quiet. The room is in good size. However, their centralized A/C unit needs to be upgraded. The room temperature is too warm to me.

The Astra Hotel in Ferrara has a good location, a short walk from the Este Castle, the Duomo, and the historic center. The single room I was in was fairly ample and quite clean, especially the bathroom. All the desk clerks with whom I dealt were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was pretty slap-up. The only quibble that...

One month ago I slept for 5 nights in this hotel, a 4 star one, and I can assure that I won't sleep there anymore in my life. The only positive thing was the fact that it is settled very close to the city centre, but despite this fact, I'm still thinking about how this hotel can be listed as...

Dear Mrs. Nancy, I'm really sorry for your bad experience in our hotel. Usually we have no problem with cleaness, maybe your room was not well cleaned but we had no claims during your stay. About the garage, all the hotels in the heart of the city has a small garage, because in the historical center there's no space. Maybe...
