The fact that the rooms are small, loud and old. The fact that breakfast was very poor The fact that the bathroom was smelly, even after cleaning and the equipement didn't function well. The fact that the so called private beach had to be payed extra and was accessable for everybody The fact that the facilities and the private garden area weren't corresponding to the pictures shown on the website...
Location is good. Very nice garden. Close to all shops and restaurants. Free bikes at the hotel and nice cycling tour along the beaches.
Size of the room ( 114). There are bigger and nicer rooms on the same floor. Noise isolation of the room. The private beach is not free for hotel clients. And the beach is more for families with small kids.
Location is close to beach and city centre, there is adequate private parking. We had a quiet room and enjoyed the patio in the evening.
The two rooms shown to us to chose from did not correspond to any of the pictures on the hotel web-site; in fact there was no even a chair to sit on! The "kingsize bed" was more suited for younger princes and actually measured 190 by 160 cms. Although some staff was excellent, others were rather rude and non-communicative (in English?)
Quiet and relaxing atmosphere made the stay a nice getaway from the usual crowd along the coast
The staff was very accommodating and we enjoyed our brief stay. The hotel to be fully enjoyed should be visited for several days to relax, enjoy the sitting rooms and beach. The feel is more Italian than international.
The king-sized bed was actually two twins pushed together and they were on wheels. With no carpet on the hard wood floor the beds moved apart while sleeping.
The very quiet and romantic setting, the very genuine atmosphere, the excellent arrangement with the beautiful beach, the excellent location and the very friendly staff. Excelllent value for money and we hope the hotel will keep its character.
Great location 10 mins stroll along the prom to the town of san remo which is a great place and facinating to explore,with excellent places to eat and shop (if thats your thing),the hotel location is very quiet,(you can hear the sea),and very clean ,We stayed in the annex not the main hotel which is probably even better ,good room facilitys and air con - a must for this area in the summer,good b/fast in a classic italian period room with excellent staff and all very helpfull,beach was excellent and the food there simple but very good and fair price- we would go back again.P.s- use the train to get around and see the other towns and monaco (we did) as parking is a nightmare and really you dont need a car,save your money and get a train pass.
Excellent location, a few steps from the beach. Free and secure parking on site.
The Air conditioning was not working properly in our room, although this was not a major issue for us.
Close to the city, walking distance 10min. And very close to the beach.
No isolation between the rooms. All kind of noises can be heard by all.
Wonderful location and lovely hotel. The staff at reception were very friendly and helpful.
The only negative thing I can say about our visit is that our hair dryer was broken. But the staff remedied the situation.
great location, hotel staff helpful when needed; breakfast is really good compare to other 3 stars hotels in Italy or France. Great running tracks just outside the hotel.
the only problem with this hotel could be noise - rooms are not soundproof, so there can be noise from other rooms
The staff was kind and helpful, facilities clean and comfortable, location absolutely perfect - an excellent value. I would definitely return!
The room was nice and clean but as someone else mentioned a bit small for a double. Since I was on my own that didn't matter much for me. The room has aircon which worked fairly quietly even if it was an inside unit. Other rooms had outside units. I haven't tried sleeping with it switched on. Given thee time of year that wasn't necessary. Budget hotel with some past grandeur.....
No Internet availble in all rooms. My room was to far away from the accesspoint. Putting my laptop in the window made it possible to do some e-mail anyway, but far from convenient. There was a salon were you could plug in the laptop and have a good connection though. But still internet acces was as advertised so room for improvement. The hotel seems to lean towards the elderly. I was the youngest guest during most of my stay and the average age seemed to be 60+. Access to the beach area was through a security gate. Maybe give residents a key I.S.O. having to ring and wait for access in/out to promenade. Beach is paid service by the way as there is no direct access from the hotel.
excellent location 50 meters from own beach and 10 min. wlak to city centre. Old fashioned house with warm atmosphere and friendly staff.
Very friendly and helpfull hotel staff. We felt very welcome and relaxed from the first minute.
