    Good = This is a very typical Italian hotel. A grand entrance and large dining room that was clearly once an impressive and important hotel in the area. Good location right by the beach but not too noisy. Nice, modern rooms, well maintained and with good toiletries on offer and large modern flat-screen TV with satellite.

    Bad = The foyer has lost all it's charm and is now a mish-mash of styles. Very modern red leather chairs sit alongside old furniture from the 1980s and dozens of other items that have appeared over the years and never been cleared out. Messy and mixed up due to sloppy management. A reception desk covered in "stuff". Just not a "slick" feel to the entrance.

    The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The room was excellent and very comfortable. The balcony was a great addition to be outside at night. THe hotel is not super close to the train, but we backpacked there in about 20 mins. And it is very close to the beach and a grocery store. Excellent all around.

    Best not to travel there from Firenze on a Sunday, train is filled with teenagers. Monday was great.

    Excellent kitchen with cutlery, pans, fridge etc. Spacious and clean apartment. Close to the beach. Good communication. Cool air indoors.

    The breakfast was a disappointment; eggs had run out at least 45 min before the service was supposed to end. The inner court yard with tables was dirty. No English language TV channels. WIFI worked only in the lobby.

    We arrived early in the morning and were checked in straight away which was rrally helpful. Parking was arranged for us and the location is excellent just off the sea front, but only a few steps away. Staff were respectful and helpful. Would highly recommend

    Bathroom is small, but adequate.

    Fabulous

    the location was very good for a beach holiday

    I was disappointed with the lack of internet access, the lack of a swimming pool (for a 4* hotel and the somewhat dated design and layout of the room we were allocated with poor view and light in the seating area.

    Close to beach

    Expensive. Web site misleading - the room looks great but reality very difference. a pity as the building once used to be wonderful but has been spoilt by terrible interior design & poor level of finish. Very disappointed after having stayed in a hotel 50m away that was the same price but different planet 'Principe dei Piemonte'.....i suggest you look closely at the rating of this hotel. Family room was dreadful!

    Superb

    Hired bikes - excelent value at €5 for the day from midday onwards.They had a deal with Nuova Italia so we got 2 sunbeds and an umbrella and use of the pool for €15 for the day - although they save the best beds for the season ticket holders so many of the beds near the sea were left empty which was a bit annoying,Hotel was really nice and definitely good value.

  • 8.0
    Fabulous

    Good location, friendly staff, good soundproof between rooms. Hotel offers two beaches at the same price - choose Nuova Italia if you want to use pool actively, especially with children, otherwise take Principe beach as it is more quiet and offers more space, but has outdated pool.

    Decor&furnishing is very simple, naked walls painted in a such style that looks like hospital rather than hotel, family room kitchen lacks dishwasher. Overall this hotel is a value for money, but a fair effort of decor improvement would be great.
