Boutique Hotel on the Beach

Posted May 15, 2017
Pros: The intimate feel of the hotel.
Location: We made sure to be there for the large market held every Friday along the water. The hotel is within walking distance of the market.
This is the second time we've stayed at Hotel Sole Mare. The location is excellent and you couldn't ask for better service from the friendly staff. There are excellent restaurants within walking distance.

The front desk staff were all wonderful, as were the breakfast staff. The location was wonderful. My issue is with the cleaning staff. My room did not have a "do not disturb" sign, and the day after check in the maid started to open my door without knocking, as soon as I said "No thank you" in Italian, she apologized and closed the door. However later that day, when I was in my room, the maid (not sure if it was the same one or a different one) opened my door, and I kept saying "No thank you" over and over and she still CAME INTO THE ROOM. I was NOT ok with this and kept asking her to leave. The following day, when I was going down for breakfast another maid was right outside my room, and I told her I did not need them to go for anything. I had a very quick bite to eat (less than 10 minutes), and in that time the maid went into my room, sprayed something disgusting everywhere that I had to open all the windows. And 10 Euros WAS MISSING FROM MY WALLET all of a sudden. I will NEVER stay here again. They invaded my personal space, my privacy, and they stole from me. DO NOT STAY HERE.

Good Hotel Convenient for Railway Station !!

Posted Dec 5, 2016 on Hotels
A good hotel within a 10 minute walk of the railway station. The room was clean and comfortable and the town centre close by. Our train didn't arrive in Ventimiglia until 1710 and we caught the 0908 to Paris Gare du Lyon the following morning, so we weren't in town for long. Should we need to stay in Ventimiglia again we will definitely choose this hotel !!

convenient clean and great location

This hotel is directly across the street from the sea which made swimming so very convenient. After a swim, I went for a glass of rosé and did some writing or reading and one of the three restaurants along the water, only 1-4 minutes walking from the hotel. The hotel itself and every square inch is immaculate. Each room seems to have a sea view and I spent hours on the terrace as is so lovely. I greatly appreciated the fridge in the room for wine and those evenings when I was really just wanting to chill in my room, with fruit, cheese and and some different meats I bought at the morning market. It was an easy walk to the market and main area for shopping and very convenient to walk up to the old town. I also appreciated the morning breakfasts with hot boiled eggs and a selection of fruits, yogurts and meats. The pastry was not the best but that was minor. Venitmiglia has pretty much same beach as Nice France nd only 30 minute train ride away, but Ventimiglia is WAAAAAYYYYY less busy on the beach. Great swimming too. The city is just off the border of France and Italy and easy access by train to Menton, Ville Franche, Nice and as well in Italy to San Remo and Genova and further. I have stayed at this hotel 8 years in a row and would definitely again. I didn't leave until late in the day but luggage can be stored after check out and they provide a washroom as well so I could still swim and then go change and clean up before my pick up to.

Friendly hotel in good location

Posted Sep 27, 2016
Pros: Nice room with good balcony. Breakfast was good and staff very attentive.
Location: Good market on a Friday. Good restaurants and ice cream shops! Easy travel by rail along the French and Italian coasts.
We thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. Felt very welcome. Hotel is in a good location with good sea views and lots of good restaurants in the area. Ventimiglia has a lot to offer with a great weekly market and easy travel along the coast in France and Italy.

Minute room filled entirely with the bed. Our Booking was made for a sea facing room for my husband and I. The reservation got messed up and We were given a double and adjacent single room which was just as well in the end as we needed the other room just to have space for our suitcases and stuff. Not a happy experience. Avoid room 29/30.

Madam, we regret we are not she was happy with the room from us your assigned. You have mistakenly booked a triple room with a partial view and we will have reserved a triple room facing the sea consists of two rooms with two televisions, two refrigerators. families with children like this very room. For the future, we recommend you book a double room are more 'spacious and also have a more low price. With the opportunity to extend our most 'cordial greetings.

Train interrupted but hotel staff was outstanding

Posted May 2, 2016
Our train from Paris to Ventimiglia was interrupted due to a strike and my wife and I got stuck in Nice. I contacted the Hotel via email and notified them we may not make our final destination. Our train was late to Nice so we missed our new connection and even thought it was last minute Hotel Sole Mare gave us our refund. I can't comment on the rooms although pictures look amazing but the staff is top notch. Thank you Hotel Sole Mare.

Nice hotel but noisy.

Posted Jan 4, 2016 on Hotels
Lovely hotel, let down by poor noise insulation. No one wants to be disturbed in the sanctuary of their hotel room, by children running around in the room above or next to them.
