    Great hotel in historic part of town.

    We had a nice stay at the Carlton. It was walking distance from the train station and right in the old part of town. Breakfast buffet was good with lots of variety. The staff were always very helpful. The room was clean with a comfortable bed. Pillows were flat and firm. It’s conveniently located in the center of the historic part of town so easy to see all the sites. I would stay there again.

    Great hotel and location.

    Great location and staff. Excellent breakfast and convenient cafe / beverages in the lobby. Fitness room could use some newer equipment including free weights. It was unfortunate that Italian law does not permit air conditioning at this time of year as when we opened the window we were subjected to mosquitos. Overall a great hotel to stay at. Highly recommend it!

    Ferrara Carlton Hotel

    Nice apartment with sleeping area separated from living area by a hip-wall. Apt is in an adjacent building so you didn't deal with the noise and traffic of receiption area. All cooking amenities/utensils were provided which is great for a visiting family. Excellent breakfast wiht a range of hot and cold items and you could ask the staff to prepare something that wasn't in the buffet. Odd shower arrangement that took some creative dancing skills to use for a North American (not uncommon in many European bathrooms). Wifi - not very good connectivity. System was supposedly upgraded in Oct 2019 with high-end router system (give the hotel a call to confirm). I would recommend staying at this hotel even with the minor inconveniences mentioned.

    Charming, small hotel in the heart of the historic district. Staff is very friendly, patient with non-Italian speakers and attentive to guests' needs. Rooms are cleaned each day in a timely fashion. Highly recommend to weary travelers!
