Right in Ferrara Centre, professionally run. Small breakfast dining room for the size of the hotel, but good buffet breakfast. Some parking problems, so you have to book the hotel garage 12/15 euro a day, or pay parking in the small Square opposite.

Bei meinen Buchungen über Venere war ich noch nie enttäuscht, weil man vorab gut informiert wird. Das Hotel Carlton in Ferrara jedoch hat meine Erwartungen übertroffen. Der gepflegte Zustand des Hauses und der Zimmer, die Freundlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft des Personals, die angenehme Atmosphäre und die Ruhe sind zu loben. Die Nachtruhe war gewährleistet. Die gute Lage des Hotels zentral in der Altstadt und das günstige Preis-Leistungsverhältnis - unter Berücksichtigung eines Frühstücks, das über normale italienische Verhältnisse hinaus geht - machen das Haus empfehlenswert.

We found our selves walking every where we went in Italy once in the towns or villages and found the Hotel easy to get to from the train station. Once at the Hotel the old town was also very close. The staff was nice and was more than willing to work with our son on his Italian which he has been using for 6 months. The room was clean, large for Italy, and quiet. The breakfast had a great selection. We were very pleased.

An excellent hotel. The staff were invariably friendly and efficient, and the standard of cleanliness very high. We used the hotel as a base for visiting Ferrara. It is centrally placed, and in addition only ten minutes walk from the train station, from where we travelled for trips to Ravenna and Bologna.

This is a lovely hotel, located in a small square with a choice of restaurants. It is only 10 minutes walk into the centre of Ferrara which is lovely. The room was large and spacious, the breakfast more than acceptable. The rest of the hotel was nicely furnished and comfortable. The desk staff where some of the nicest I have met. It was my birthday during my stay and the hotel presented me with a card and chocolates. A very nice touch. I would thoroughly recommend the hotel to anyone.

The location is central, our room was quiet, spacious and clean. The bed was really comfortable. Unfortunately the service personal was impolite, unprofessional and arrogant. As recommended by the hotel we parked our car in front of the hotel on the parking place of the hotel to unload our luggage and to transport to the room. During these 15 Minutes, the police gave us a ticket of 103 Euro for wrong parking. After long discussion with the reception we found out, that the receptionist forgot to inform us, and to give us a parking card, which we should have put into the window. We asked if they could call the police to explain the story. They failed. Finally we drove by ourselve to the police, which solved the problem, and was extremly friendly ! Big compliment to the police, they provided better service than the hotel for which we payed more than 100 Euro.

Unfortnately, we only had one night at in Ferrara. The Carlton was easy to find and close to the historic area;within a very short walk. The staff was very helpful although parking was little difficult. The air conditioning system was a little wierd, you had to call the front desk to ask them to leave it on; otherwise they kept shutting it off at intervals. It wasn't that big a deal though. We enjoyed this place and throughly enjoyed Ferrara. We wish we had another day or two to explore the area.

We wish there was something more than "excellent" to define this hotel, its staff, its location, its cleanliness and the high level of all the services provided. During our stay there seemed to be no limit to what the Carlton Hotel staff could do in order to make it more than just comfortable and always with a sincere smile. Definitely a hotel to visit more than once. Vorremmo che ci fosse qualcosa di piu' di "eccellente" nella scala dei voti per definire l'Hotel Carlton di Ferrara. Gia' solo la bellezza e la pulizia dell'albergo e la ricchezza dei suoi servizi sarebbero sufficienti, ma passano in secondo piano rispetto alla professionalita', alla disponibilita' e alla cortesia dello staff, sempre pronto ad adoperarsi per rendere il nostro soggiorno indimenticabile, e sempre con un sincero sorriso sulle labbra. Assolutamente un hotel in cui tornare.
