“Good location”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

This hotel is across from the beach with lovely views of the water.
However, there was no ramp for luggage and there were several steps up to the lobby.
The rooms were small and the wallpaper was peeling. The staff was friendly and tried to be as helpful as possible but there were a few inconsistencies. We were told that the pedestrian bridge was closed - it wasn't. We asked about visiting an olive oil farm - we were directed to a winery.
Parking was 15 euros a night and we had to be buzzed in. The car was brought out for us when we needed it.
Breakfast was ok.

The Carlton Hotel is at a good location. The beach is just across the street and there are shops and good restaurants in walking distance.
The Carlton is more a business Hotel than a place for a longer vacation. The rooms are nice and clean, but very small, so we had problems to stow our luggage. The view from the seaside rooms is great, but you have to keep the window closed, because it's very noisy.
Breakfast is average.

Just across the road from the beach - old-fashioned hotel reminding one of the 30's. Friendly reception; help in organising parking; good service at the Italian breakfast and an ideal venue for discovering Pescara. Not far from super restaurants and excellent shopping. Rooms perhaps a trifle small but with an excellent view of the beach.

Room Tip: make sure to reserve a room with a beach view.

My husband and I are both 'nordics'. We need a cold room to sleep in at night. The room was overheated for us. The hotel claimed to have AC but they really don't. The courteous desk clerk explained to us that no hotel in Italy has cold air coming out of heating vent. (This isn't quite true since in Rome our hotel did have real AC).In the end we decided to keep the window open and the room cooled down nicely. Next: food dilemma. As in many European small cities restaurants serve only at meal times. No non-stop. We were very hungry and the desk clerk explained that at around six in the evening is apperitivi time. Restaurants serve drinks and often put out a spread of cocktail food. That was nice to know. And yes, the beach view was really great!

Room Tip: make sure it's a beach view room

Second visit in Pescara and second stay in Carlton.
Lovely place when you have sea view room.
Hotel is just standing on the beach, surrounded by small good restaurants.
Perfect place to stay privately of in business. I was operating from that hotel for one week and did 2500 km by car

Room Tip: Ask for sea view

We arrived in darkness, but were so delighted when we opened the curtains the following morning to such a wonderful view of the sea and sun.
The day starts with a lovely breakfast plenty of choice and we were able to make our own waffles which were super. We had a palm in the summer facility directly opposite the hotel which the hotel can arrange for you. The hotel also has cycles for guests- an excellent way of getting around.
The room was spotless and housekeeping brilliant. The staff were more than helpful and very courteous.
This was primarily a business trip for my husband so the free wifi was great, he could even work on the 4th floor balcony and watch the rest of us bobbing about in the sea!!

Room Tip: We had a sea view which was wonderful.
