Restful time in Ancona

Posted May 5, 2016 on Wotif
Pros: Good breakfast. Free WiFi.
Cons: Better map of the area.
The hotel overlooks the sea at the end of the wide Viale Della Vittoria. There is a staircase down the cliff to the sea but there wasn't much of a beach. Instead there are large pebbles leading to caves where the fishermen used to store their boats. We were there when the town was celebrating it's patron saint day and there was a street market for four days the whole length of the Viale Della Vittoria to mark the occasion. Parking was at a premium but the hotel provides free parking. The hotel was fairly quiet as the holiday season hadn't yet started. There is no restaurant in the hotel but a pleasant breakfast is served. The reception desk staff all spoke English to some degree and were always helpful. The room size was modest but adequate and the entire hotel was spotlessly clean. Several different restaurants were recommended and we enjoyed them all.

Not exactly "Grand"

Posted Jun 26, 2015 on Hotels
I have been to Italy on business and pleasure trips over 40 times. My good Italian friends have often reminded me that the "4 star" hotels in Italy are many times suffering from "star inflation", and are really more like a 2 and 1/2 stars. I had a nice but Spartan experience overall at the Grand Passetto. The room was small and basic, and the bathroom had one of those showers that is so small, if you drop the soap you can't pick it up without exiting the shower and then getting back in. I have never stayed at a "Grand" hotel or a "4 star" hotel where there is no restaurant, the bar is usually not open, and the air conditioning only is operating "certain hours". The pool is small but clean. If you are looking for a basic hotel room close to the Ancona beach, the price is right, and I'm sure you could do much worse. The BIG highlight of the trip was actually the Passetto restaurant across the street ... wonderful sea views from the deck, and a sommelier who was over-the-top friendly, knowledgeable, and generous with his pours.

Fantastic location

Posted Sep 5, 2014
Spacious rooms with lovely pool area, however the bathroom without shower curtain or shower glass meant flooding after every wash. The bath also had a whirlpool in it that didn't work. Breakfast was the biggest let down. The same very limited selection was served every single day. No kettle provided, glasses not changed everyday even if they had been used- once requested they acted straightaway and upon arrival we were met with an ashtray full of cigarette butts on the balcony; a disgusting sight.
