Landed in Rome, rented a car and drove clear across Italy in one afternoon, finding this Adriatic seaside city. Beautiful beach and boardwalk with countless restaurants and beach clubs. Hotel, across of the beach, was recently refreshened, and is clean and neat, although rooms somewhat on the small side. Breakfast buffet on the rooftop restaurant was superb, with a fantastic...

Stayed there for work last month, and after reading the reviews on trip advisor, I was actually expecting this hotel to be worse. The rooms have obviously been refurbished, bathrooms are new, but the corridors and room still smell old and mouldy. the first room I was given was so noisy because of the restaurant and elevator that I spent...

First - not only no parking but a rude response when asked. Go and find a parking space, there's parking where you can lock up your car later. It's closed now. Then, went to my room - terrible mouldy smell in bathroom - got an allergic reaction and had to change room. The staff did immediately move me, no problems,... More

The Esplanade has been around for a while, but the hotel feels as if it is has been restored and modernized. The rooms aren't the biggest, but the view is fantastic (ask for sea view and a balcony), wifi worked and was free. The location is perfect, one can walk to everything one came to Pescara to do. Roof restaurant... More

Visited Pescara on a spur of the moment over-night trip, so took pot luck on a beach front hotel. Overall impression was that the hotel has seen better days, and could do with a refresh. The bedroom was a reasonable size, but was quite tired - as was the bathroom. Bedroom amenities also quite limited - a small tv that... More

This was my first visit to Esplanade and Pescara. I would highly reccomend this hotel. The location was right in the center of everything you need beach, great food, great shopping, a short trip ( 10 min) "Colli"to the mountains in Pescara beach on one side and mountains on the other just amazing. The rooms were extremely clean and spacious.... More

Four of us stayed at the hotel for four nights in early August 2008. My uncle was marrying an Italian girl not far from Pescara. The hotel is literally right across the street from the beach and minutes away from shopping and restaurants. The rooms were pretty standard and the bathrooms seemed fairly large for Europe. The shower had plenty... More

We stayed for 2 nights and can't say we enjoyed it. From the outside it gives a pretty nice impression, but the rooms need to be refreshed and the staff consist of middle-aged men, who don't seem interested in making your stay enjoyable... It's definitely overpriced - and we wouldn't stay there again in case we'll be passing by Pescara.... More

I studied in Italy during the summer of '04. 10 of us decided to go to Pescara for a long weekend. We stayed at the Esplanade and had a great time. The hotel rooms were spacious and clean.
