We stayed in hotel Carlton just one night with kids during our travel through Italy. Great location in pedestrian zone in the center of Ferrara. Very nice, clean, newly decorated room with very nice bathroom. Very helpful staff. And... Great breakfast. If I knew that the breakfast is so good I would get up earlier. I will certainly come back... More

My family and I stayed at the Hotel Carlton while driving through central Italy. We found the room very comfortable and well located and the staff to be pleasant and helpful. The hotel is a great value, and the bathroom is one of the nicest I've seen in an Italian hotel. Very large shower. Before I continue with the review,... More

Excellent hotel deserves 4 stars, the rooms are large and spacious, service is excellent, breakfast plentiful and there are a variety of foods. The only downside would be the shower in the bathroom which is relatively small, but in addition to everything else what is great that it is negligible.

The Carlton is very convenient for seeing Ferrara. It's a short walk to reach any of the sights you might want to see, particularly the castle/palace of the d'Este family. They have parking off street, but it's reached by a lift. I had hired a Golf and was comfortable getting in and out, but anything bigger would have given me... More

We only spent one night here. You can reserve a parking place in the garage, it was important for us. The receptionist welcoming us was very professional, excellent English.

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
