“Good room and facilities”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

This was a decent-sized room with very good facilities, and a nice hotel all-round. Everything was very clean and tidy, and a neat touch was that the art was more interesting than most hotels. The central landmarks are within easy walking distance, and the hotel has bikes to hire which is a great way to get around Ferrara. There's also good restaurants and bars nearby.

Nice hotel in the city centre of Ferrara, specially on the main avenue, full of shop and life. also easy for a big car park in the main square in front of the hotel as for a exclusive parkade inside the building.

We stayed in a very comfortable, quiet triple room, and the maid came by to re-do our beds just as we'd requested. Excellent breakfast. Good location for visits to the cathedral and the Castel Estense.

We were in Ferrara for new year's night fireworks. We're back at home at 1.00 a.m. and many people still celebrating in the streets. Despite this the room was so silent! My girlfriend needed a bag of ice due to a distorsion and the night porter was very patient and careful, we appreciated this. We advise Carlton Hotel, comfortable and in city center, for a lovely holiday.

I always stay at the Carlton if I can. It is perfectly situated in the city center. Parking can be a pain but once it has been secured the rest of your stay should be OK. I've stayed at the Carlton several times over the last several years and the accommodations are A OK. If you are there in the winter, don't forget your house shoes since the floors are often cold. Other then that a pleasurable experience

Room Tip: Ask for one of the apartments. The prices are not that much more and offer a bit more room.

I stayed here for 3 nights in November. I loved Ferrara and this hotel was great and in a perfect location near the old part of town, the Castle and the Cathedral.
I had a panoramic room on the top floor with a large balcony that had views of the Castle and the Cathedral. Bathroom was large, shower was great and room was good sized and clean.
Wifi was strong and parking was across the street in either a public lot or an indoor garage, there was a charge for either but can't remember how much.
Breakfast was more varied than average and very good. Staff was pleasant and helpful with perfect Enlish to boot!
I would recommend without hesitation.

I loved the city of Ferrara. Very centrally located to some other very nice little Italian cities. While the hotel was a little farther from the train station, it was certainly walkable. The most disappointing part of the hotel were the beds. Wow!! Super uncomfortable. The pillows were like sleeping on a rock.

Dear VFerr,
I'm very desolate to read your review.
You could ask at front desk everything about your stay, included change the pillow!
Any Guest has different way to sleep and prefer a different pillow.
We regret don't have satisfied your permanence with us.
We'll assure you for your next stay in Ferrara every attention.
