Location is the best thing about this hotel. Wifi was strong. We had a room with a balcony looking out at other apartments out the back, while nothing spectacular it was lovely to have somewhere to sit down outside. Room was basic but clean. The shower is a bit of a weird set up, a shower over a bath tub,... More

Found by accident. Wanted to stay a commutable distance from Monaco for F1. Simple hotel family run with charm and simple needs all covered. Breakfast is fabulous with lots of fresh food served from before 7 until 10. Perfect start for a busy day. Staff catered well for guests needs. Room cleaned every day with fresh towels. A real bonus!!!... More

As I prepare for my 4th trip to Hotel Calypso (in June) I thought i would write another review from my stay last year (see previous reviews regarding Stay 1 and 2).

At 88 euro including breakfast this hotel is excellent value. The reception is welcoming and helpful. The rooms are basic but adequate, comfortable and very clean. The ensuites are new looking, spacious. The shower had good pressure and good hot water. There is a small balcony with furniture to relax on and enjoy the bustle below. Some rooms have a... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night, on 25 October 2013. As other reviewers have said, it was spotlessly clean and the room was a perfectly good size with an ample bathroom. The location is ideal for the beach, market and the surrounding amenities in Ventimiglia. Breakfast was continental buffet style and was more than adequate for our needs.... More

Fantastic location, near the station and just down the road from the beach. Lovely, clean room and shared bathroom, but that was no problem. Friendly staff at the reception, for the price I think this is a great deal. Ventimiglia surprised me, although it is not a touristy place.

We arrived late at night and found the hotel from the train station with little difficulty. When we arrived we checked in and asked about train times to Pisa, the receptionist was unbelievably helpful and knew the train times.
