U.S. Family visits Calabria with elderly Parents
Posted Jun 1, 2015
Rented car and drove to hotel, keep your eyes open for the front drive way entrance (small sign)...if you pass it the loop back takes a bit of effort. Great check in, met the person I e-mailed with to make the reservation, elevator up to rooms. Rooms are large, bathrooms are large, shower is grand. This hotel was top of the line 2000 and was decorated to match. This hotel is also a conference center so there may be conference training going on in the training rooms on the first floor. Open bar, with a wink to the front desk, for a glass of wine. Entire hotel celebrates Calabria culture and food. Built in restaurant for nightly dinner....go with a button down shirt and dress pants. Out the front door short walking distance are many causal restaurants, shopping, laundry....nice walkable medium sized city. Quiet hotel, good for sleeping. Wifi and a standing computer and printer are in the lobby. Most of Staff speak moderate International English, be a good tourist and learn some Italian. Watch out for Bank and European Holidays for closings. Many shops close from 12-4pm each day. Dinner starts at 8pm. Brilliant buffet served in the morning.
