Fabulous views and location
Posted Sep 12, 2008
The hotel is in a fabulous location, with fantastic sea views. The rooms are large, bright and airy and are well equipped. The breakfast is well presented and varied with a good selection. The pros of this hotel - the size of the room, the great location and the fantastic view and for that, I would recommend it. The cleaning staff where friendly, cheerful and efficient as where the restaurant staff at breakfast. The cons were - It was more impersonal than other hotels I ve stayed at in Italy. The breakfast table situation is confusing as their are numbers on each table which relate to the rooms of people who have dinner booked and therefore, you re not sure where to sit until one of the staff tells you its okay to sit anywhere (and I did see one Italian lady of age having a rage at a young woman who was sat in her seat one morning). The tea and coffee comes out of a machine at breakfast. The hotel doesn t smell nice, due I think to the smell of cigarettes which has been masked badly with air freshener. It is also a more modern design, which means you can hear everything around you in detail ~ including if your neighbours likes MTV on a rainy afternoon while you try and siesta, if you have a young family that like to scream and run around until midnight or if the man next door is a snorer. I also fell up the stairs when I was there, bruising myself quite badly as they are a marble/stone design, so if you like to take the walk rather than the lift, be aware.
