Stayed one night at the Carlton Hotel on my way to Lake Garda. Hotel is 15 mins away on foot from the train station, just outside the old town (few hundreds of meters away from the cathedral and the castle). Big room, clean and quiet, recently refurbished, consistent breakfast and the attitude of the staff literally put a smile on... More

The Carlton is centrally located within the old city. In our short stay we received friendly and professional service from the staff. The room was clean, comfortable and with excellent wifi connection. We were happy with the choice to stay at the Carlton Hotel in Ferrara!

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 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.

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!
