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.

Little hotel in the heart of San Marino. It is clean, cheap, rooms are good and stuff is polite and everytime smiling. I would rather go back there if somethimes visit this city-state again. Only beautifull memories from 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.

San Marino is the oldest republics in the world, a tiny country, just a town actually. It is a hill and the very top of that hill has been inhabited for thousands of years. Most of the buildings have been constructed in the middle ages. It is a must-see and therefore most of the hotels are quite expensive. La Grotta... More

I had been in San Marino at the beginning of March and I stayed at this hotel. I found it ok. I think there's much better in San Marino, but it's not too bad. I didn't like the rooms very much. They have very old and uncomfortable beds and my window didn't close well. But...the staff is very gently and... More
