Hotel La Grotta is a simple but clean and cozy hotel. It is not luxurious, but you get a room good for a good price. The hotel is well located at the top of the San Marino 'mountain' just behind the old city gates. A flat screen TV would have been a nice addition in the room with international cable.... More

San Marino is a beautiful city to visit in a beautiful country, and this hotel was wonderfully situated in the centre within just minutes of spectacular views and in a quaint street with pizzerias and shops just round the corner. The hotel lobby is warmly decorated and inviting, and the proprietors are smiley but don't talk much to you. The... More

Lots to say about this place, most of it good: – Interior/exterior – a traditional building tucked into a snug corner of town with a homely, welcoming atmosphere, and very tasteful decor throughout (though some more furniture in the rooms would be nice for those staying longer). A lot of money has clearly been spent to make it look and... More

Nice hotel for a reasonable price, clean rooms, and very helpful staff. Location was wonderful in the heart of the historical centre of San Marino. I love the open buffet breakfast with many choices for food and drinks.

The hotel is very very nice and the view from the room is amazing. I had a big and very clean room. The breakfast was ok, they have fresh croissant, fruits and cereals. In front of the hotel you will find a nice Panineria, (La Gata) where you can have brunch and coffee. I definitely will return to La Grotta.... More

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
