We loved this hotel and the really friendly and helpful staff; (from the architect daughter managing the hotel, to the gracious grandmother helping out with breakfast and the nieces and nephews at other times). We loved that this is in an historic and traditional building within the main walking, sightseeing and shopping area of RSM. We only spent five nights... More

Great central location, with public parking near the hotel. San Marino is a good day excursion if you decide to visit. We stayed at Hotel La Grotta recently. The room is a 15m2 size room - small but adequate. Very clean and with the basic amenities. Breakfast could be better, but acceptable. If there is any complaint, it is that... More

I stayed for two days in La Grotta hotel. It enjoys great location in the heart of San Marino historic center and also close to public parking P6 for those coming by car. In case you are coming by car you do not have to pay the regular rate of the parking which is 16 EUR for a fortnight, but... More

If you are staying San Marino - everywhere is centrally located, nothing is more than 10 mins walk away although it always feel as if you are going uphill to get anywhere. Had a great stay at the La Grotta. Great decor through out especially the rooms, very clean and a shower that had the best water pressure I've ever... More

What a beautiful little place! This hotel was a warm and welcoming retreat after a day of sightseeing in the rather cold and damp weather of early Spring in San Morino. We were in a room at the back on the 2nd floor which faced out to a brick wall - but despite this we were amazed at the cleanliness... More

Wonderful, central location in the the old town. Lovely decor and a very funky lampshade. Very comfortable bed, great shower and spotlessly clean rooms. My room backed on to a restaurant's kitchen so there was quite a bit of noise. Bring earplugs if you stay here.

The hotel is well located, almost at the top of the mountain, and for its price, it is nice. But the walls are paper thin and the noise carries very far. So far you can hear the "natural" sounds two rooms away. Breakfast is minimal; croissants, jam, coffee/tea and some small bits.
