Four stars? Maybe in 1960, but from that year they did not change anything. Location is good, but choose room on the south, north is like sleeping in engine room of the ships in port. Better to skip this place, rooms and beds are too small, everything is old and overused, breakfast is limited to few sweet bakery products.

I have been going to this hotel for many years because I work with a company in Ancona and it's covenient. It is a shabby hotel with run-down rooms and a strange old-fashioned feel. Last time I was there I had an awful experience with some dirty underwear that had been left in my wardrobe but I must say the... More

I love this little hotel! The lift is so small I could only just fit myself, my suitcase and my travel companion in it! All the staff were super friendly, the view is lovely out onto the sea and the breakfast is just the best! I stayed here in 2011 on a business trip and enjoyed every minute. I shall... More

I spent one night in Ancona in this hotel for business. PROS: I must say that the staff is nice and helpful; the location is convenient, close to city centre and the harbour. The breakfast room is very pleasantly located at the 5th floor, with a beautiful view. CONS: the hotel itself is NOT nice. Frankly speaking, it cannot be... More

We spent a couple of nights in this hotel while on business in Ancona. The good things are location, heating, parking and a fantastic breakfast each morning. To reach the hotel you must carry your own luggage up marble stairs. There is no railing at all. It is not wheelchair accessible nor is it an inviting place for families. A... More

Stayed overnight prior to catching ferry from Italy to Croatia. What a lovely stay. Given the reasonable rate, we did not expect such comfort and style. The hotel has high ceilings and large rooms and is decorated in an ornate Italian style. Sure it is an older style hotel, but that's what we enjoy, clean, comfortable, with personality and style...

Not far from the ferry from Croatia is this established hotel of charm and character. It is not a place for those who seek a modern place to stay , rather it is a hotel to be appreciated for its olden style charm. I arrived late at night , the most pleasant young gentleman on reception made me feel welcome... More

The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is a bit lifeless and in need of modernisation. It is clean but dated. Not sure how it compares to the other hotels in this run down port town. OK for a stopover before/after a ferry but not a for a long stay.
