We stayed here and found it to be a very pleasant and comfortable hotel, good service, EXCELLENT breakfast, and a great English breakfast waitress.
The room was very clean, and the beds comfortable, and no noise - but then Ferrara is not a big place, but still it was wonderful to be away from the hustle and bustle. Our room was also at the back of the hotel. The Hotel Carlton is very close to the centre of the smallish town, and there are lots of restaurants and shops nearby. They have bikes to rent, at a reasonable cost, and helpful with directions and recommendations.
The breakfast waitress told us about Abano Terme, a town with natural spring spas close by and made us welcome. There was looooovely coffee and the breakfast of a range of meats, cheeses, pastries, cereals, yogurts, juices, fruits, and real toast, made a change from the traditional continental breakfast. The hotel had courtesy umbrellas and fresh orchard fruit for guests. The fridge in the room allowed us to keep a couple of things cold for later in the day too.
This hotel was very reasonably priced for the room, service and breakfast. I'd highly recommend it. Try to get there for a Sunday because there was a great market on in the square, with tempting Italian delicacies available to sample, as well as hand made crafts, jewellery and clothes. I loved our visit to Ferrara and the Hotel Carlton. :)
