We had a wonderful time in Ferrara, partly thanks to our decision to stay at the Carlton. It is right in the center of town, and everything (almost) is in easy walking distance. We just parked our car in the hotel garage and went everywhere on foot. The breakfasts were the most sumptuous that we have ever had at an... More

A wonderful, clean, modern hotel. Stayed on the top floor with a room with a small balcony overlooking the small square in front of the hotel. There is nothing quite like just sitting and people watching! Standard italian breakfast included - tons of choices of fruit, sweets, protein (eggs, milk, cheese), breads -- and of course, hand made coffees! The... More

This is a great hotel that is near the city center, rooms are very clean, beds great, and the breakfast is super, lots of variety. Parking is a bit tough and costs extra. They also offer bikes for rent. Also a great value.

The Carlton Hotel is located in the Ferrara town center, where it is forbidden to enter with a car. You have to provide the hotel with the car details in order to avoid a ticket. They have a secure parking garage very close to the hotel entrance, which we used. It cost 15 E per night/day. The hotel is either... More

We stayed here for 1 night in may 2016, the hotel staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Our room was ok, slightly dated but we had a balcony. Bathroom was large, shower was nice. Close to the town centre and a short walk to shops, restaurants and bars and local history.

Dear Basing325, I'm desolate about what appened. Unfortunately in Italy the law is very rigid about the passport registration. So our staff is often employed to do this boring activity.

In the heat of Ferrara, close to Este Castle and nestled in the shops along Via Garibaldi, the Carlton is well located to see the central sites of town. It's a 15 to 20 minute walk to the train station over sometimes rough pavement, but you pass by the medieval city walls. Bath was large, very clean, with a very... More
