I am very fond of the Esplanade. I've stayed there twice now in the last fiveyears, and I look forward to staying there again soon. I recently took on some work which means I might have to stay there every couple of months, and I have to say the pleasure will be all mine. The Esplanade is quite old fashioned,... More

I have just seen below a rave review for this hotel, which made me reflect on how low some people's standards for a supposedly 4* hotel seem to be, until I noticed the positive comments regarding the breakfast. Having positive things to say about the appalling spread and service at the Esplanade convinced me that the review must be a... More

I called the hotel a few days before my trip to check about parking, (the employee was totally annoyed by the call) They said they didn’t have parking but there was parking available AROUND the hotel. In fact the parking around the hotel is for RESIDENTS of the area. There are in fact 2 spots in front of the hotel... More

We are from Canada and stayed at the Esplanade for 3 days. Giuseppe, the concierge, was wonderful and extremely accommodating and helpful. He recommended restaurants, beach lidos, and bike rental locations. The breakfast service was great. Espresso was to die for! Location of hotel is superb. Very central to beaches, restaurants, and Pescara central. Hotel rooms were very nice. Beach... More

Wonderful view, excellent position, fantastic building from outside and that is it!!. Once you enter it is drab with no character, furnushing needs updating and staff need training in customer service. When we arrived there was no warm greeting, nobody to carry bags, no hotel information and I was laughed at for going up the wrong staircase as there was... More

Terrible experience. Dont stay here. Terrible service, rooms, and a joke at 4 star. The only decent thing is the location and the website. xxxxxxxxxxxdxdxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

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
